Property description

Recently renovated, private one bedroom apartment which sits on the border of the great Boston neighborhoods of Roslindale and West Roxbury. Has everything you need to make your short or medium term stay comfortable, convenient, and affordable! Rents by the day, week, and month. Approximately 600 sqft of fully furnished top floor living space including a spacious bedroom, large living room, new bathroom, efficiency kitchen (no oven) and eating area. Private entrance. Access to shared back porch, grilling area and backyard/patio. WiFi and internet cable included.

7 minute walk to the Needham Line commuter rail (note: does not run on Sundays) and a short bus ride to the Forest Hills T station (orange line). Takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the heart of Boston via train. 10-15 minutes by car depending on where you are going and, of course, traffic. Bus stop right outside the apartment.

Shops, market and restaurants all within a mile. Harvard Arboretum right up the road! Plenty of on-street parking which does not require a permit (only town in Boston where this is the case). Close to Newton and Brookline.

Owner usually on site to help with anything you may need. This is a great way to spend some time in Boston for a fraction of the cost. You're still in the city but in a more comfortable and quiet 'suburban' environment. Very affordable week and month long rates for people who are here for temporary work, school, or just visiting.

Also can be combined with 3 bedroom apartment rental (Homeaway #3655641) as available for larger groups.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, I am a thirty something, happy-go-lucky kind of guy with an entrepreneurial spirit and adventurous soul. I've spent a good portion of my life traveling with the military, for jobs and school, and of course for fun! I'm a little more settled these days considering my best buddy is my 4 year old daughter so I figured I'd have to get my 'traveler' fix by giving others a comfortable place to stay in the great area of Boston! Look forward to hosting you!

Why the Owner Chose Boston:
Great piece of property in the city limits of Boston. City center accessible but the comfort and feel of more suburban living. You won't find a better value deal in Boston!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
My property is one of only a few in the neighborhood/city (Boston areas of West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and Roslindale) which is completely private. It is the only area of Boston where on street parking is free, AND available. There are limited hotels in the vicinity so space like this is very hard to find.
