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 (Boston areas of West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, South Brookline, 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.
