Interaction with guests

How much do I interact with Guests?

I like to leave that up to you, with all the space & privacy desired, however there are a few things that are kind of important and helpful to know, so I normally allow a five minuet introduction for a little tour of the apartment, a map orientation of the neighborhood, and to answer any pressing questions.

Also if its a short visit, I like to check in every two or three days just to make sure.. you have what you need and all is well, if requested offer suggestions of fun and interesting things to do.

I stayed here with my mom for one and a half months, this place is awesome and the pictures, for the first time in the history of Airbnb, are not showing just how great of an apartment this is. Had great memories here, 5 stars.

This apartment was a great place to stay while I was in Boston for work for two weeks. It has a wonderful atmosphere, was clean and comfortable, and well outfitted. Brahma was a kind and attentive host. It was great to meet him. Getting to downtown Boston is an easy commute for work and sightseeing. Just a 10 minute walk to the T and a couple short stops away on the Blue line. I would gladly stay here again.

Beautiful, cozy apartment. Quick walk to the subway which is just a few stops away from Fanheuil hall. I would recommend keeping the apartment clean at all times, as the landlord occasionally comes in unannounced, but otherwise very accommodating.
Brahma User Profile
Response from Brahma:
Thanks for the good review. As far as "coming in unannounced" it sounds a little like I barged in. I did each time first to fix chairs second time arrival of couches and third time fix frig write to you at least a day in advance then rang bell and knocked on the door before entering. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Everything needed was provided. The neighborhood is safe and we felt comfortable walking to the T and other destinations. It is small however if you are not coming to Boston to stay indoors it won't matter. Gracious host. Very clean.

Brahma User Profile

Yoga teacher, vegan, green minded nature lover, artisan.

In the mid 70’s at seventeen after high school my father gave me a
ticket to Europe to pursue a spiritual quest, after a long journey I joined a group of european Indian monks/ sadhus’s in Switzerland.. taking a spiritual initiation from swami Srila Prabhupada that lead to a trip overland to India.

Since then.. teaching yoga, a vegetarian/ vegan diet, spirit centered art, music and philosophy have been my life core.

I started Herbivorian House in 2004 with the idea of having an artsy alternate resting place, in the hope of attracting somewhat like minded eco friendly people, though we are open to and graciously welcome all.
