Come here if you want a friendly host and you want to see the City of Boston and all it has to offer. Very clean and comfortable accommodations as well. I will go out of my way to make you feel at home. Feel free to ask of me anything you like.
BOOKING FOR ONE GUEST ONLY... LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS ARE OK! BE ADVISED, THERE IS ONE CAT IN MY CONDO. IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ ENTIRE LISTING!
PLEASE BE a social person with the ability to socialize and converse with people you have just met (me/John). This is not a place for 'loners'. If you do not like to meet new people and are a social invert, this is not the place for you.
This is a great modern (newly renovated) space if you are looking to explore the city. My place is located in the heart of Boston (South End/Back Bay/ Bay Village) line. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING! ONLY A 25 MINUTE WALK TO FENWAY PARK and IT'S RED SOX SEASON! Or a 13 minute train ride to Fenway Park! 8 minute walk to Boston Common and The Public Garden, short train ride to Harvard University and MIT. 25 minute walk to the North End and the USS Constitution in Old Navy Yard!
Also within walking distance (or short train ride) from the Hynes Convention Center and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
A HOTEL ROOM in this area (BACK BAY/SOUTH END) can easily exceed $300 per night. THIS IS A GREAT DEAL. VERY CLEAN place and located next to everything! Remember when booking in Boston, location is everything. If you see another property even a 1/4 mile away, chances are it may be in a 'bad' part of town and I can guarantee its not as nice or clean as my place. In my opinion, cleanliness and location are the key elements I look for in a place when I travel.
PLEASE READ the entire description. No endless emails with a ton of questions. I will be happy to answer all your questions in a couple emails.
NO PETS ALLOWED due to Building policy. NO SMOKING PLEASE
The South End is home to elegant Victorian brick row houses, many dating from the 1800s, and one of the most diverse populations in Boston, the South End blends many of the best elements of the city. Some of the city's finest dining can be found lining Tremont Street (one block away) and the arts shine at the Calderwood Pavilion and the Boston Center for the Arts. This location is close to everything Boston has to offer! It is steps away from the Back Bay 'T' Stop/Commuter Rail/Amtrak Station and Green Line!
YES THIS IS A QUEEN PULL OUT SOFA IN A LIVING ROOM. This IS a SHARED apartment. I live in the bedroom on the upper floor. The living room and bedroom are on two different floors. Living room (your area) and kitchen are on the 1st floor. The bathroom and bedroom (Bathroom and bedroom are separated) are located on the second floor. The entire condo was recently renovated this year! This is really a space for you to rest your head at night, shower, eat, etc.
PARKING IS LIMITED! NO FREE PARKING within the neighborhood. Only metered spots. However, there is a Parking Garage nearby (1 minute walking distance). The name of the Parking Garage is 'Atelier/505 Garage' and they charge $26 USD for 24 hours of heated/ac parking. This is a steal in Boston as parking can be very expensive and challenging!
There is one cat in the condo. Her name is Abby and she is a pure bred Abyssinian cat. Abby sheds very little and is well behaved. I vacuum twice a day as I have mild ocd and you wouldn't even know a cat lives here unless you were to see her bolt up the stairs! She is very friendly and will play 'fetch' with you.
