About Hermina

Working professional woman, originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years I live in the same house since year 2000 house. I love to travel and enjoy hosting travelers. I live in the front Victorian house, #1. You will be in #2 behind the main house, quiet, cozy place

Hermina purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Hermina chose Dorchester

4 min to walk to T-red line (Field's Corner stop), affordable, clean, comfortable. Eating and sopping places just around corner, ocean not far, Parking on th street is unlimited, free.

T-red line takes you direct to South Station, Downtown, MGH, MIT, Harvard square. From the airport is free if you take Silver line and change to T-red line in South Station to Fields corner.

It is vibrant, looks like part of New York, not the wealthy, historical, area, safe, convenient and nice host who tries to make you happy

What makes this townhome unique

The Neighborhood:

Dorchester is a historic neighborhood of over 6 square miles in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. The town was founded by Puritans who emigrated from Dorchester, England in 1630.

The neighborhood is a mixed neighborhood, safe, convenient. The community has shown many improvements over the past 15 years that I’ve lived here. There’s a Police station right behind my property, and Buddhist center in front. Everything you need is just around the corner: Public library, restaurants and shopping plaza, T-mobile store.


The ocean and Castle Island are a 5 min drive away. UMASS, JFK library and museums are a 5 min drive away, or free shuttle buses are accessible from the JFK T-stop.

Public transportation:

A 4 min walk to the Red line subway at Field’s Corner stop. The Red line is the most very convenient line in the Boston subway system, which connects Field’s Corner to the Airport, South Station, Downtown Crossing, MGH hospital, MIT, and Harvard sq. Free and easy access to my home from the Airport by public transportation.

The House:

My home is a duplex with two houses attached to each other on the same grounds. There’s the main Victorian house, built in 1848, and a Townhouse attached to it at the back that was built in the early 1900’s.

The Townhouse: Sunny, beautiful, clean, big, comfortable place for gatherings of friends and families. There is everything to feel at home:

Great location, very comfortable and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO's in the Boston area over the last 2 years. Hermina's place has been the absolute best. Very comfortable and private, with all the amenities we could have asked for. Only a few minutes from the "T" (subway) made it really convenient to come and go. Hermina is a wonderful host; she reached out to make sure we had everything we needed and was very responsive in all communications. I would highly recommend this property!

Convenient place for visiting Boston

  • 4 of 5

We spent close to a week here. Hermina was a very helpful host. The place is very convenient to traveling into Boston on the train/subway. Close to a grocery store. Neighborhood interesting and safe. There are numerous people sharing the coin operated laundry, but at least we could do laundry. The kitchen not especially well equipped with basics like drinking glasses.
