Boston house description

Boston is divided into neighborhoods. This property is in East Boston. We are an island linked to downdown by the Blue Line ( 3 stops) a tunnel or a bridge. You do not need a car to enjoy the historic and tourist attractions of Boston. Actually, you will have more fun without a car. Most of out guests fly into and out of Logan Airport, an 8 USD taxi fare to the house, and enjoy Boston using our very excellent public transportation system.Two bedroom fully furnished apartment available for short term rentals. Porch with glider, back yard with picnic table and grill. Access by stairs so not for mobility challenged guests. First floor, master unit or a two family home. Includes private bathroom and fully furnished kitchen. Nice residential neighborhood. One MBTA stop away from Logan Airport. Enjoy all the comforts of home while you explore Boston! The house is furnished for comfort not Better Homes and Gardens. We call it Ikea modern. Relax and be comfortable. Plenty of closet space, drawers and you will not feel like you are crowded into a small apartment. I have a Twitter account called Boston Host which gets updated daily with links to many events and destinations in Boston. It is a constantly changing opportunity of all means of entertainment and so much to experience in Boston no description could do it justice. Guests are so clever at finding destinations, I confess to constantly learning from them even though I a life long Boston resident. The front door has a Schlage keyless lock. Before your arrival you will be given the code. You will just come inside and make yourselves at home.If you have any questions, concerns or problems you will contact Charlotte, my daughter, who lives upstairs. She serves as our on site property manager. She just loves meeting and helping our guests, is a wealth of information and is an irreplaceable member of our team. Joan and Denis are always available by email, text, phone.

                  About: This rental is a family endeavor and successfully operated now for two years. Hosting is a complex, many faceted challenge. Charlotte is the onsite manager during your stay. She is a life long Bostonian, world traveler.The photo is Joan and you will be renting her space so likely you will only communicate with her by email. JOan does all the bookings, marketing and communication prior to your arrival. She continues to communicate with you while you are there but via email.Joan is a co-owner of the property and resident of the rental space. Never away from a wifi signal, summers she is off to dog shows and New Hampshire. Denis also supplements the team and co-owns the property.He is responsible for maintaining this very old house and has been known to drive 100 miles to help clean between guests. He is the one who makes sure when guests arrive, there is a cold beverage available in the refrigerator. 'The Team' has a few more members but they are presently in Spain for at least one more year. So for now, we have an empty nest in the summer, and enjoying returning the hospitality we have received in our travels. We believe in communication and travel as a path to a more peaceful world.

                  Why Boston:
                  A free standing house in Boston with Maple trees and back yard in a great neighborhood!!! We can say no more!!!!!!!!!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Could wake up and be sitting in my office on Washington Street (downtown) in fifteen minutes. A bit disheveled maybe, but never late. That included grabbing pastry at a bakery on Bennington STreet to eat on T and coffee in Government Center Starbucks. Beach down the street!! Walking paths!! Close and easy access to Logan Airport!! Love love East Boston!!
