I am a ten year resident of Savin Hill in Boston. I enjoy cooking gardening and pets. Two miniature poodles also reside here. Ciao Bruce

Three days in Boston just isn't enough! We could spend a week and would be thrilled to spend it with Bruce and Barry. They were super friendly, the house has a wonderful, open, youthful vibe and the location is great. The transit stop is only a couple blocks down the street making the location perfect! Just had a great stay. Great local pubs and McKenna's for breakfast is a treat.
The listing was spot on; this is an inviting home! Bruce was very accommodating to make sure we had a great experience. He went out of his way to ensure we would be able to get into his home at a time that was right for us. The room provided was prepared and ready prior to our arrival and was very comfortable. Before leaving Bruce even invited us to brunch with people who were currently staying and others who had previously stayed (the food was also amazing)! I would highly recommend staying here!
We had a grand time especially considering the reason we were in Boston was medical. We were given a room upgrade, handed a glass of wine when Barry realized what stress we were under. We loved having the young students in the house, and one shared her Brazilian dinner with us. Could not have been more thoughtful. Also the house is filled with unique and interesting objects, we so enjoyed just looking around.

This was our first airbnb booking and we had a pleasant experience staying with Barry and Bruce at their Dorchester home. Our hosts were attentive and concerned about our comfort. They were also very knowledgeable about the area and happy to give us directions and suggestions. There were plenty of bathrooms in the house and even though they had other guests, we never felt crowded or disrupted. The house was clean and the 10-minute walk to the nearest subway station took us through a pleasant neighborhood. We would stay again.
I stayed with Bruce and Barry for about a week. It was a delightful experience - they are very kind and gracious hosts! I was made to feel very welcome, and part of the family. They even offered to take me to the grocery store when I needed something.
The room was clean and spacious, and the house is a 5 mts. walk from the subway line. Very convenient.
I'd recommend them highly!
I stayed 5 nights with Barry and Bruce in their decked out Victorian house. The room and bed were perfect. It was especially nice that the room had its own thermostat. The rest of the house had everything else you could possibly ask for. I was most appreciative of the company of Bruce and Barry and the other people staying in the house. I was often invited to dinner and wine in the evening, which always resulted in a few hours of lively conversation. I had the opportunity to speak with people staying at other airbnb properties in the area at my workshop, and none compared to the experience I had at Bruce and Barry`s. Definitely stay there if its available!
This is my second time staying at Bruce and Barry's. I had such a great time this summer... that it was a no brainer when I was traveling back to Boston to stay with them again. They are such delightful and accommodating gentlemen. The house was decorated beautifully for the holidays. I was even fortunate enough to be there for a New Year brunch they threw. Excellent hosts through and through! They are my go to Boston destination!
Vi ankom 2. Juledag og ble møtt med et julepyntet hus både ute og inne. Bruce var i Florida, men Barry tok i mot oss og viste oss rundt i huset. Vi bodde i 3.etg. og fikk eget tårnrom i tillegg til rommet. Meget artig og spesielt rom, føte at vi bodde i "jungelen". Til og med håndklærne var jungelinspirert. Å dele bad gikk bra da vi hadde 3,etg. for oss selv. Nydelig frokost hver dag hvor Barry holdt oss med selskap. Det var også 3 hyggelige studenter fra Nederland som bodde der. Vi ble invitert på et glass vin med Barry en kveld da vi kom hjem og på nyttårsbrunch 1. nyttårsdag som vi dessverre måtte takke nei til da vi hadde avtale med familie. Vi traff Bruce kun siste morgenen, men led ingen nød da Barry var tilgjengelig hele tiden vi var der. Vi hadde 6 netter i huset og kommer gjerne tilbake og kan anbefale stedet på det varmeste.

Barry greeted us at the door with a big smile, which set the tone for our stay. The room was just as we expected, with a very comfortable bed. Since we were there for just one night after more than 14 hours of travel, we just wanted to eat, unwind and go to sleep. It was a five minute walk to a reasonable priced eatery with decent food. On the way we passed the "T", which is an added bonus if you don't want to drive in Boston. The next day, we almost got off later than we planned because we really enjoyed our morning chat after breakfast. We definitely hit it off and will stay at Bruce and Barry's home again.
I'm so glad my first Airbnb experience was with Bruce! He was very welcoming and friendly, and was kind enough to allow me to leave my things at the house before and after check in, so that I could explore Boston unimpeded by luggage.
The house itself is adorable, well-kept, quiet, and very convenient to public transit. The room Bruce provided for me was perfect - clean and homey. The bed was amazing - I don't think I've ever slept better in an unfamiliar place. He also provided a simple self-serve breakfast, which was much appreciated.
Super et merci de votre visite
I had the pleasure to host Bruce this December. Even though it was only for two night I got to know Bruce a little bit. He is a very nice person and I was happy to have at my home. I can only recommend him as a guest for other Airbnb hosts. If I will ever travel to Boston I will stay at Bruce's place for bed and breakfast.
a wonderful guest
