Lo spazio
Due to Boston's new and very restrictive short-term rental law, starting Sep 1, 2019, we have switched to renting units for only a minimum of 32 days (because 28 days is the cap set by Boston and 31 days is the cap set by Massachusetts). It's unfortunate for us and our many happy guests as we really enjoyed hosting - but it seems the hotel-lobby had deeper pockets. Anyway, please do stay with us if you need 32 or more days.

With the above note, if you book with us, we ask that you allow us to show the unit to prospective tenants - we will give you at least overnight notice for those showings and either myself, Sean or Tom, will accompany them at all times - so that you should not have any concerns. There is no need for you to change anything you do while you are staying with us - you should relax while staying with us.

ACTUAL GUEST REVIEW JULY 2018: “These guys are well prepared. Very smooth, access with codes, the place was impeccable, and the SHOWER head... OOOOOOHH that shower head... AWESOME! Also, the mattresses are VERY VERY COMFORTABLE ... even the bunker ones; you'll get a good rest, promised ... ”

An entire 2 bedroom (2nd bedroom is smaller), 1 bathroom apartment to your very own. Third floor (3rd) unit, no elevator. The living room contains a couch that pulls out into a Full size bed. The large bedroom contains a Queen bed. The smaller bedroom contains a bunk bed (Twin bed over a Twin bed) that can each hold an adult up to 250 pounds. Please note that there is no door on the 2nd bedroom, and thus it's open to the living room.

Beds: 1 queen bed in the bedroom, and 2 twin bunk beds, and the sofa turns into a full bed. The space can fit 6 comfortably (2 on each queen bed and sofa bed) and then 1 person each twin/twin. Also remember that there is only 1 bathroom for all to use.

There is a FULL kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, silverware, cutting boards, knives, etc. Microwave, Stove/Oven, Refrigerator, Dishwasher (and soap), Coffee Maker, and even some basic snacks (ramen and mac & cheese), soda, and water, that you are welcome to utilize for free.

The calendar shows the true availability for the unit - and thus what is available, is shown as such and your request will likely be approved very quickly.

There are numerous laundry stores within close walking distance to the house.

There are also board games and card games for your enjoyment.

WARM/HOT Weather: There are air conditioning units in each room, and Dyson fans (hot and cold) in the rooms – you should be very comfortable.

COLD Weather: : The unit has hot water baseboard heaters along the walls and is controlled by the Nest thermostats – feel free to turn it up or down as needed. The same portable fans above (Dyson), also provide excellent and powerful heat - one in each room with a remote control – feel free to use them – they will heat a room very quickly.

FOR LARGE GROUPS: If you have a larger number of people traveling together, this is 1 of 3 units in the same building, with another building of 3 units just a few blocks away. So depending upon availability, so we may be able to book your group into multiple units - just let us know how many you have and we can customize a solution for you.

IMPORTANT:

This is not a party pad as this is our home and there are many families that live on premises, next door, as well as are hosted by us and we as well as they will not hesitate to call the police if there are any hints of a party. We are trusting you to treat our property with the same respect as your own.

NO parties or loud music at any time, no smoking period - and definitely no loud noises before 9am or after 10pm, in consideration for our neighbors above, below, and to each side of the unit. The existence of Airbnb depends upon the kind consideration of our neighbors - please help us keep up good community relations. In an effort to help ensure you have quiet and peaceful enjoyment during your stay, we have surveillance video cameras in all the common areas of the building - of course, none inside the units. Breaking these rules forfeits your stay and your deposit and a fine of $2000/day of your reservation (this is how serious we take it)

Please enjoy your stay! Thanks!

ACTUAL GUEST REVIEWS:

Nov 2018: “This place is a home away from home. It may sound like a cliché but Mac and Sean's taste in decoration is great, practical, and amazing. From the comfortable, spacious furnishings to detailed oriented instructions and suggestions in our surroundings, our stay went without a hitch. A mere 30 minute straight walk to downtown Boston, Convention center and surrounding area. Fluffy towels, ultra comfortable beds, ginormous tv (but you are here to explore Boston, right?). Lets not forget the strong WiFi signal (again get away, go outside this is Boston). The Spa style shower, the high quality extras, and the complimentary snacks and beverages. It's a must stay again and I forgot to mention affordable and comfortable even if you have five or six people. My colleagues in our floor were complimentary of my choice in this spacious home away from home. Great job guys!”

Oct 2018: “This was one of the nicest Airbnb stays I've had. All the amenities were there and the communication between the host and I was quick and easy. As a lone female, I felt completely safe in the surrounding neighborhood at night and was able to quickly travel to anywhere in the city I wanted. Great Place!”

Accesso per gli ospiti
The entire unit (kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedrooms), and common laundry. Parking is often available on the street during the daytime and weekends, but much more difficult at night and during snow emergencies. Keyless entry system. As your arrival date nears, 1 day prior, you will be sent a message with instructions for electronic keycode access. Check in time is 3pm, and check out time is 11am - that gives us a 4 hour window to have my cleaning crew fully clean, disinfect, change sheets, for your arrival and the guest coming in after you. You can check in anytime thereafter. Please note that this also means that the 11am check out must be strictly adhered to on your last day, as we may have another guest checking in that afternoon, and need time for my cleaning people to do the same. Unlike a hotel that has multiple rooms to shuffle around, that is not the case here.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
TO HELP US ENSURE YOU HAVE A QUIET, PEACEFUL, AND ENJOYABLE TIME WHILE STAYING WITH US, WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW THE FOLLOWING APPLIES FOR ALL GUESTS WE HOST:

1. We ask you to remove your shoes while inside the units. Boston homes are full of charm, but are also some of the oldest in the country and thus the walls and floors are thin – and sound travels. Removing your shoes helps to both protect our floors, but also ensures the people below you also quietly enjoy their stay.
2. No loud noises before 9am and after 10pm. As noted above, sound travels. Our unit has a device by Netatmo, called the Home Health Coach, and it measures air quality/pollution, humidity, temperature, and noise levels – and amongst other things, alerts us when noise levels get too high. Sounds are NOT recorded though.
3. For your safety, we also have a Leeo which monitors for the smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarms and notifies us if they sound off, so as to keep you safe. We get notified if an alarm goes off in the unit.
4. We strictly DO NOT allow parties. Breaking this particular rule forfeits your stay and your deposit and a fine of $2000/day of your reservation (this is how serious we take it) and we will not hesitate to throw you out.
5. All of the COMMON areas, lobby,exterior, have surveillance video cameras that also detects noise levels. Of course, there are NONE inside the units.
6. Before you arrive, your profile on here must have the green verification checkmark on it and have uploaded a government issued identification to your profile (under Trust & Safety section) – please fill out as much of the profile as you can. This lets us know who you are, and also ensures that you take full responsibility to abide by these important rules.
7. The number of guests staying is less than or equal to the number of guests on the reservation. If your numbers change, we can always amend the reservation before or during your stay. We look forward to meeting you all upon your checkin.

Upon your confirmed reservation, you agree to abide to by these terms as it will help to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment for you and everyone around you. The existence of Airbnb depends upon the kind consideration of our neighbors - please help us keep up good community relations.

PARKING:

This is a fairly urban neighborhood, and even though we don't have parking onsite, there are some parking options on the street. It depends on the day. Weekends are all open parking and during the day, it's relatively easy to locate parking (as long as you don't park near the beach if the weather is nice). Weekdays are harder and you'll have a little more difficulty depending upon when you arrive - if you arrive during the daytime (before people return from work), you can often snag parking on a side street without any issues (perhaps 1-2 blocks away - you can double park while unloading before going to look for parking). If you arrive after 6pm, it get progressively more difficult as the evening goes on, but then get a little easier again after the restaurants close - so within 1-4 blocks.

BEST PARKING PLACE SUGGESTION: There is usually no restriction parking on Old Colony Ave (that’s another cross street at the corner of Dorchester St) that is just 1-2 blocks away. Also the streets (Columbia Rd) that are along the beach and access roads that parallel the beach usually have no restriction parking too - also just 1-2 blocks away. Also there’s no restriction parking along Joe Moakley Park (that’s the huge sports activity park that is next to the beach/water). These are good places to park if you need to just leave your car - but pay attention to Snow Emergency area during the winter still (see next paragraph). This is the BEST PLACE to snag a spot because they are mostly unrestricted (except for street cleaning times and snow emergency, which are very rare) - and the BEST TIME to find them is to do it during the day time, especially during the weekdays, then you can leave your car there for the the duration (again, exception notes earlier)

Of course, you still have to pay attention to the signs and don’t block handicap sidewalk ramps, don’t block fire hydrants, don’t block bus stops, etc. If you arrive in the Winter time and there’s a major snow storm or Snow Emergency, then all bets are off you should not bring a car.

We're happy to help you hunt down parking when you arrive. Thx.

ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION:

Get rid of the car, or park and leave it. Instead use these options of the Subway (nearby), the bike rentals (also nearby), and Uber/Lyft (see referral codes for free rides in the House Manual). Most popular destinations are a short $5-$15 Uber ride (non-surge). Boston is also very bikable and Boston has The Hubway, a bike rental network with bike stations all over town with a station about 0.25 miles away from our place.

I grew up in Colorado, moved to Cambridge to attend MIT, moved away to London and various places, now back in Boston for the past 20 years. My husband, Sean is a retired US Army veteran and graduate of the US Military Academy (West Point) - and we love to host. We also like to travel and we host as we would want to be hosted when we travel - we like comfort and convenience. Come visit, play some volleyball at the nearby beach - or just head downtown - we can walk there too!

Durante il tuo soggiorno
This is a fully contained private apartment so there is no need for direct interaction with guests, though we do like to meet you and you will see us around the building doing maintenance, etc.. You may call/text/email through here anytime as well.

Before you arrive and after you leave, my cleaning crew will come in to clean and disinfect everything, replace all the sheets with newly clean ones.

Please remember that check in time is 3pm and check out is 11am - this is important because I often have guests check in/out on the same days, back-to-back.
