A comfortable stay and a short walk to the red line rail which brings you across a good portion of Boston. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Beautiful house with fabulous polished hardwood floors. Large nicely furnished room with a comfortable bed. It's really easy to take public transport to Boston city centre. Street parking is OK unless it's a Monday when one side has to be kept clear for street cleaning. Also, don't park within 10 feet of the fire hydrant (I found that info on Boston City website). Communication: Information about the house could have been clearer. We were really confused about the kitchen arrangements. It wasn't clear what is free to use and what is personal. Also, the washing machine and tumble dryer in the upstairs bathroom had stickers saying "Not Working", yet other guests were using them.... why?? We never met Hermina or the house manager Donna. The listing mentions a laundry room in the basement, but the basement now seems to be a bedroom. Cleanliness: Guests kept the bathroom clean, but the kitchen bins were never emptied during our three night stay.

Washing upstairs makes a lots of noise and when I'm traveling guest sometime do laundry late disturbing other guests. Not respecting my notes. It will be fixed Thank you for the comments

Clean, tidy and warm. All I needed for a couple of nights in Boston. It felt homely and Hermina gave me a warm welcome. Easy access to the T-line, a small shopping plaza 3 mins away had a variety of stores which meant I could get snacks, liquor, cigarettes and a tracfone. The area is trying hard to improve and some of the locals were very friendly.

The room was exactly what we wanted - clean and in a convenient location to the train into downtown. We were on a road trip from NYC to Montreal and needed place where we could park our rental car plus on a budget - this ticked both boxes. The building is pleasant and feels homely.

Lovely house, clean and roomy. The only problem I had was checking in. The bed in my room had obviously been slept in and sheets weren't changed. I tried calling Hermina only to find out that her number is an international number and I tried calling Donna the caretaker but kept getting her voicemail. I had to send an email and eventually got a response. It all got straightened out but that meant I was late for my meeting etc Other than that, I enjoyed my stay

Hermina was a fantastic host. Very welcoming with lots of local knowledge, she went above and beyond to ensure I had an enjoyable stay. Room was lovely and the house itself is ideally located only a few minutes from the T which runs direct into downtown Boston. Great local food options too. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I had a great stay with Hermina. While we did not have the opportunity to chat a lot she provided a very clean, comfortable and welcoming place to stay. We were able to come and go as we pleased without feeling like we were intruding. The shared space was clean and while we did not use the kitchen there was access to everything you could want. The location is great as you are a short journey to central Boston and we felt safe at all times. Many thanks for a lovely stay, Amy

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures. …
