If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, and affordable room with easy access to public transport, near Harvard, BU and BC, this is a perfect room for you. LONG-TERM GUESTS ARE WELCOME (few months or more).
This room is perfect for long-term guests (a semester). The room is good for someone who is gone during the day to work/school (for long-term guests) or out to sightseeing (short-term guests) and wants a comfortable, quiet place to come home to at night.
The room is located on the 2nd floor of a house and just a few minutes away from public transportation (metro and buses) with easy access to the city and major universities, a 24-hour supermarket, and one street away from many affordable and good places to eat.
The room has everything you need, clean bed sheets and clean towel, always upon arrival. The room is always disinfected and cleaned completely prior to your arrival. You have a full size bed, a desk, a chair, a night table, a dresser, and full-size built-in closet. In the summer, I also provide you a fan. On this floor, there is a shared full bathroom, which is always clean.
Who else lives here: On the same floor, there is another airbnb guest (the room next to this one), and the hosts. I choose my guests very carefully, so whoever the other airbnb guest is at the time, he/she will be also quiet, clean, and mind his/her own business.
Small lovely chihuahua dog lives here - he is the master of the house, so you need to be a dog lover. :D
You will have access to the shared full bathroom on this floor, the half bathroom on the 1st floor, the kitchen to make light meals, and high-speed WIFI internet. Sorry, but the living room is off limits to guests for personal reasons.
For short-term, guests: I will be available to answer your questions anytime you call me or text me, and I will provide you with useful information prior to your arrival. We probably won't see each other much, so you should be an independent traveler who does not need much interaction with the host (as during the summer, I also travel a lot).
For long-term guests (1 month or more): I will help you with whatever you need. There is another airbnb guest, I choose my guests very carefully. I need people who are: Quiet, clean, busy with work/study, minds their own business, goes home and spends time in their room, don't hang around the dining room besides when eating. You should be the same, mind your own business type of person. We can say "hi" and have a short conversation when we run into each other, and if you need anything, just ask me - I will help you with anything you need ;) but otherwise, you should be a self-sufficient person who is busy in their own world.
And if we are both not busy, we could go out for a cup of tea sometimes.
Allston is a neighborhood of younger population (ages 18 through 32). Most people who live here go to BU, Harvard, MIT, BC, or are young professionals, interns. There are also some young families living in this area. As a result, there are many things to do in Allston - you can find restaurants with cuisines from all over the world, bars, shops, convenient stores, pizza shops open until 2AM, and more. You can go to see a music concert, or go to the gym, because everything is nearby.
The room is located in a house on a quiet green street. The street is an off street from the main "Brighton Avenue", which features restaurants with all world cuisines, convenient stores, shops, and more.
Next to the house, there is a big green park - you can run, jog, walk, get some fresh air, or play sports as there is a tennis and basketball courts as well.
The house is 100meters away from bus 66 (takes you directly to Harvard in 15 minutes) and steps away from bus 57 (takes you directly to BU campus in 10 minutes). Metro station is only 5 minutes away.
The metro station is 5 minutes by walk, the station is called "Allston Street" on the B Line of Green Metro - you can get to downtown Boston in 25 minutes directly.
The rent includes all utilities. YES THERE IS WI-FI included. There is no parking.
The room is disinfected, cleaned completely, and comes with clean bedsheets and a clean towel upon check-in, always.
1. No guests/no overnight guests. (However, if you stay long-term and have a girlfriend/boyfriend come visit for short-term, we can arrange).
2. Please do not abuse the utilities - turn off the lights, take quick showers.
3. Clean up after yourself (dishes, trash, etc.) Disinfect all surfaces, stovetop, dining table, and around the sink after each use.
4. Please, no smoking in the house and no walking with shoes on in the house (take off your shoes in the hallway). - Bring some slippers.
5. Laundromat is 2 minutes walk down the street and I believe it is $5 per load wash and dry. I have my own washer and dryer, for your convenience you can use mine every 2 weeks.
6. Living room is off limits to guests.
7. Please no drinking in common areas. You can go out to nearby bars and pubs (quite cheap and good!) if you feel like drinking, or you can have a beer in your own room.
Finally, if you stay longer than 1 month, you are expected to contribute to house cleaning (we will rotate) but don't worry, we are always clean, so it is a breeze to do a cleaning! :)
It was my first time living abroad and I really enjoyed that time. I appreciate Tia's and her brother' help while living there and enjoyed playing with Muffin.
There are a bus station, a train station, and many restaurants near the apartment, so it's pretty convenient.
This was my first time using Airbnb and it was a great experience! My room was very clean and comfortable. Just down the street was a CVS, plus numerous options for eating out. There's also several bars and stores throughout the neighborhood. I always felt safe walking around by myself, even at 1 am in the morning. Tia was not in town when I stayed there, but she left me instructions on how to get around that were very helpful. There were two bus stops very close to her place that go to various locations around the city. Tia kept in touch with me via text the entire time; she was very friendly and answered any questions I had. Definitely recommended!
Great room (with a large closet)!
The hosts were very nice. The neighborood is cool if you're a student. I had a pleasant stay.
Tia was a perfect host, very warm, responsive and helpful. I stayed for a week both in the large room and in the small room. Both rooms are clean and cozy. The place is quiet, with a lively puppet, and it is conveniently located. I could not have expected more from it, and the price is very reasonable. If you want to explore Boston, make friends, and especially if you are on budget, this would be a perfect choice.
Tia's place is just a stone throw from BU, a very lively place with lots of young people. Lots of good, amenities, public transport to downtown Boston and Cambridge all within 5-10 mins walk. Tia is really a very hospitable host... She made sure I felt at home and safely reach my next destination. We even went for dinner on my last night. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a stay in Boston!
My girlfriend and I visited Boston this past weekend and decided to give AirBnB a shot for the first time. We couldn't of asked for more than what our host Tia provided. She was always checking up on us making sure we had everything we needed. She made our first experience extremely comfortable and smooth. Tia went above and beyond in every way possible and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to stay in the Brighton/Allston area. Apartment is conveniently located next to the T only a few blocks away, getting in and out of the city was a breeze. I visit the Boston area on a yearly basis and will definitely be inquiring on staying with Tia again. Thanks again for everything T!!

A proposito dell'host, Tia
I am a global traveler, an animal (dogs!) and nature lover. I love mountains, lakes, flowers, butterflies, green grass, autumn leaves... everything natural & I enjoy meeting interesting people. I train muay thai (kickboxing), I follow a pescatarian diet, currently working on building muscle, and I love staying healthy & clean. I like listening to jazz music & learning languages.
5 things I cannot live without:
+ My perfume (Everything I own must smell nice!)
+ Candles (scented)
+ A cup of green tea with honey (I drink at least 3 cups of tea per day)
+ A good movie (love Steven Spielberg movies)
+ Traveling once a year
Staying with me, you can expect a very quiet, very clean and disinfected place, all the time. You will feel very comfortable and I am very helpful & sweet.
My life motto: Be young & have fun!
