On back side of Mission Hill, 10 min walk to (2)T lines. Close to Brigham Circle (medical district) MFA,Symphony,Fenway,Downtown & JP. Sunny living-dining room & open full kitchen. Large bedroom w/queen bed. Wifi, patio, full bath, washer/dryer.
Our space has some history, abandoned about 35 years ago this triple decker was a labor of love to renovate, its wooden and warm with a south facing bay window. The back side of Mission Hill (MH) faces southwest and is not inundated with student housing, no huge party scene like the front of MH. Plenty of ethnic and american restaurants and bars abound. Our common space is small, but the bedrooms are good sized. Two of the bedrooms have 2 large windows each and the red room only has one window. The patio and garden is huge, adding much to our living space in summer and fall. We are situated in between Orange and Green "T" stations and other bus lines, ie you are close to everything, down town is 25 to 30 min, the airport 30 min, Fenway Park, museums etc. We are only 15 -20 min walk to the medical district, Brigham & Womens, Children's, NEBH, Beth Israel, Dana Farber. We are also close to Jamaica Plain and the Olmstead Emerald necklace. The queen mattresses are great quality and comfy for two people, of course that depends on your personal spacial needs.
The bedrooms have clean sheets, pillow cases and blankets. We will offer fresh towels and face cloths. The house has Wifi. You have full access to the kitchen with plates, cutlery, pots & pans and utensils at your disposal. Our bright kitchen includes, gas stove & oven, fridge & freezer, french press coffee maker, toaster, microwave, food processor, blender and Champion Juicer. We do NOT have a dishwasher. If you are into cooking you can have access to cooking oils, spices, coffee and teas, but please bring your own food. The bedroom will have plenty of space available to place your clothes,we reserve half the closet and there is also shelving. Since you are renting a private room, you will also be sharing the common spaces, especially the bathroom with us. We occupy the bathroom most of the year in the mornings between 6:15 and 6:50 am, but in July and August we are using it between 7:00 and 8:00 am. Arrangements can be made to rent bicycles if you wish. You can pick greens and fruit from the garden within reason and when in season.
One final thing is that we don't have any TV, with the internet and so much to do we just don't see the need, hopefully you won't either.
Interazione con gli ospiti
This of course depends on our guests needs and my own work schedule. My partner goes to work 8-4, but I'm a lot more flexible. We have maps of Boston and can certainly find a time to offer suggestions as to the how's, what's and where's of Boston, Brookline, Cambridge & Somerville and a lot of the surrounding area.
My neighborhood is mostly owner occupied housing, it is the result of 30 years of grass roots organizing and a locally responsible Community Development Corporation. I have a decent interaction with many of my neighbors. We have a 4 mile long linear park nearby with a bike path. 2 blocks to the top of the hill there is an old apple orchard and a deeply wooded forest, that can be quite good for watching birds. There are nearby sports fields and playgrounds as well. From the top of Mission Hill one can see most of Boston and even part of the bay. Our location is probably the best thing about this neighborhood.
Un giro nei dintorni
We are nestled in between the Heath Street stop on the Green line and the Jackson Sq stop on the Orange line. A number of bus lines run a few blocks away as well, but our street is quiet. A linear bike path is very close by and can take you inbound to Copley Sq or outbound to the Arboretum.
Altre cose da evidenziare
I must mention that parking isn't such an easy issue in Boston and that includes our neighborhood. Its fine on Friday night through Monday morning and for overnights but during the day non-resident parking only allows for 2 hours at a time. The City doesn't offer us guest passes so it means moving your car around a bit or leaving the area by about 10:30 in the mornings. Please tell us if you need a bedroom with a desk.
In the kitchen the primary thing would be to wash your own dishes and clean up after yourself. We don't usually use shoes in the house, we can provide you with slippers or you might want to bring some. Its not a problem if you have to use orthopedic shoes. The bathroom is clean and we want folks to hang up your towels,either in your room or in the bathroom, and not leave the floor wet. We are not a loud house at night. Alcohol is fine so long as you aren't bent on getting drunk. And please no smoking inside, we have plenty of space outdoors for that. If you are here by yourselves for more than 3-4 days we may ask you to water the house plants. We ask that you recycle all pertinent trash and compost your food scraps, if you're not familiar with that we'll be happy to show you our system. No outdoor fires allowed if we are not present. Check in time is best at 3 PM and check out is at noon.

Hi, I moved to Boston 36 years ago and have lived in this house for about 32 years, although for numerous years I lived in Nicaragua and Central America working with disabled communities to create solvent bicycle shops owned by locals. I traveled back and forth to Boston during the mid-80's and 90's. I'm the founder of a non-profit organization here in Boston called, "Bikes Not Bombs" (BNB) where i worked for 25 years coordinating the international work as well as helping to start the inner city youth programs here in Boston and a bike shop which BNB currently operates. Sixteen years ago, my partner Cecilia and I started to create a family, we have one 18 year old son named Ziggy. Cecilia is from Argentina and we are all bi-lingual Spanish and English speaking. Cecilia is currently working as a case manager for a live at home elderly services and support organization. In 2010 my family and I traveled by public busses for two years, homeschooling our son and witnessing life in nine South and Central American countries. We started the trip by car camping across the USA for 3 months, then selling the car, flying to Buenos Aires and slowly returning over land by bus, boat, and train, on two occasions we also did WOOFING on family farms.
I'm currently doing carpentry and handyman work, but because of some issues with pinched nerves i'm looking to find more ways to make a living including airbnb. I love traveling, bird watching, hiking in nature, fishing, books, cooking, art, bike riding and sustainable organic gardening among other things. I tend our 30' by 60' garden and grape arbor which makes our house exceptionally nice from May to November.
I know Boston metro-plex quite well and can help you to get around on or off the beaten track.
