We live in Boston, we're musicians, and we're quiet, responsible, and helpful. Ezra is mature and has a great sense of humor and adventure.

The place was fantastic and very roomy. Cozy rooms and decently close to public transportation. Vivian was a great host and gave us all the info we needed, and was very responsive. Would definitely stay again!
The apartment is very spacious and well appointed. Vivian stocked it with everything we would need prior to our arrival and responded immediately to any and all questions before and during our stay. The location is convenient to everything, whether you are on foot, traveling by public transportation, or by car.
The apartment is more spacious than the photos indicated, with 2 large bedrooms, ample living room and dining room, a large closet for hanging clothes in the master bedroom, and a super shower head in the refurbished bathroom. The galley kitchen has minimal counter workspace but is well equipped, and we cooked many large meals.
The apartment is in the rear of the building, protected from street noise and neighbors were quiet. A designated parking space is available for one car, and visitor spaces also available.
It's a 5 to 10 minute walk to many fine ethnic restaurants, the public library, the bus stop on Massachusetts avenue that links up with subway stops. Fun to walk around the neighborhood that includes a nearby set of parks on the shore of Spy Pond. We used public transportation for easy access to Downtown Boston and Harvard Square. Try to avoid the rush hour crush.
Vivian was reliably and rapidly available via her cellphone and helpful in providing information and working things out with our schedule. We would gladly stay at this apartment again.
Notre arrivée dans la maison de John et Vivian, dans la banlieue de boston correspondait tout à fait à nos attentes. Un endroit calme , près d'une grande surface où nous avons pu faire nos courses et profiter de la cuisine pour préparer nos repas.
John, très discret, a tout de suite répondu présent et disponible pour nous emmener dés 5 heures du matin au départ du Marathon.
The bed is comfortable and the room is quiet. We slept very well . But the bathroom doesn't work very well and it may be improved if possible. But In total, it's a very very good place for its price. I recommend it.
The traffic is convenient and Vivian is very nice and helpful.
Vivian and her family are nice. Their house is pretty close to public transportations that can take you everywhere easily. The first day we got to Boston we were hit by a snow storm and we went to the wrong address. But Vivian tried to help us to get to her house safely. Overall, it was nice to stay there.
LOVED staying Vivian and John's house! 1) GET THERE: I didn't have a car, and the location was a 3-7 minute walk to the West Medford commuter rail and five bus lines that took me everywhere. 2) GET FOOD: Whole Foods is 1/4 mile away, and a drug store and strip of restaurants is a 5 minute walk to West Medford. 3) GET COMFORTABLE: The atmosphere was warm, welcoming, and very laid back, so I felt totally at home. I experienced no worries or anxieties about staying at at a total stranger's house. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I had an extended stay most everything you need in the space was well provided for, maps, city information, coffee and tea. It was a good visit!
This was, indeed, private and comfortable. Hosts Vivian, John & Ezra were welcoming and pleasant. Artsy home at times with pleasant sounds of music wafting upstairs. Ask for help if needed with TV. Fortunately, there was little time in my agenda for channel surfing. Coffee pot and microfridge in room are nice additions. As described, kitchen access is available on limited basis which I did not take advantage of. Vivian provided perfect travel directions. It's definitely a 15 minute bus ride to Tufts. I would stay here again.
Vivian, John and Ezra were amazing! !! their home is the perfect place to arrive if you're in the Boston area, the room is clean, big and you have a lot of privacy as you share the entire floor just with Santiago, a musician who is a great guy and very respectful for your space and privacy.
We have a extraordinary experience at Vivian's place, you have easy transportation, a secure neighborhood and easy access to almost anything you may need.
Overall a 5 star review!!!!!
Vivian and her family were considerate guests and we would welcome them back any time.
easy going, just a guest that anyone would love to have!
Charming guest and very welcome anytime.
Vivian, John and Ezra were lovely guests. They are very friendly and easy going and I enjoyed having them to stay. Everything was left in perfect order and it will be my pleasure to welcome them back.
Vivian has my highest recommendation.
Vivian was a great guest. We would welcome her back anytime and recommend her to other hosts.
Very efficient, flat was just as I left it, no issues at all.
Vivian and her son were great guests. They were very friendly and the house was spotless when we returned. I would highly recommend them to other hosts!
Vivian was my first renter on airbnb but any trepidation was soon put to rest. Vivian and her party left the house in great shape. They are hikers not drinkers. They understood the recycling and composting setups and used them. They even helped me out with an errand for the house. I hope they rent again!
