Great comfortable space with a private bath and entrance. Lots of care has been given to details that make guests feel pampered. Easy access to the T. Several restaurants and cafés within short walking distance. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Very Nice room! Good location, very close to the subway (5 minute walk). From there it's only four stops to downtown Boston. So it's a good stay to visit Boston. We have had a great time! Franklin and his wife are very nice and gave us a sweet welcome and all the information we need. They put more than enough bottles of water in the fridge! There is also a small terrace right outside the room if you like. The room has his own entrance so you will have all the privacy you need. There is a place to eat breakfast and a nice diner near the subway station so also only a 5 minutes walk. The beach is a 15 minutes walk as is the supermarket. We highly reccomend this room!!

This is truly a great place. Frank was so helpful and the place was awesome. Very comfortable, full of homelike accommodations, and useful tips for people who aren't from the area. Would definitely recommend !

I said I would stay at Frank's place again... and I did. Can't beat the value for all that you are getting (yeah, business economics) and being close to the Savin T station makes this a gem for me. They are at the top of a short hill from the T. Nice view of the city in the distance.

Private and on a nice, quiet residential street. I stayed there on a business trip and would do it again. Great bed! Nice private bathroom. Upscale amenities. 3 minute walk to the T station into Boston. Beats the cost of a hotel room without giving up anything. Frank is a charming guy. Has that sort of permanent happiness about him.

Frank and Samia were very friendly and extremely accommodating. We arrived in pouring rain, and Frank graciously greeted us. The room was clean and well-stocked with anything you'd need for a short visit to Boston. He gave us the heads up about Sail Boston, which we weren't even aware was taking place that weekend. We grabbed some delicious breakfast from McKenna's Cafe in the morning, grabbed the T into Boston during the day, and had some drinks at Harp & Bard before turning in for the night. The bed was very comfortable, which was a nice surprise. We will definitely be sure to check in with Frank and Samia the next time we are heading up to Boston! Thank you!
