Interaction with guests
As much or as little as you wish. The home is your private space, but we are happy to help and enjoy meeting travelers.
We are a text or call away and are always happy to suggest restaurants or coffee shops or anything else to make your stay comfortable.
Other things to note
We welcome you to our spacious relaxing home, a great alternative to a hotel for both decor and cost. However, it is a home that we love and choose to share with fellow travelers and visitors to Boston.
We have many items from our travels. Please let us know if you have small children and we can put certain things away, or talk with you about if the house would work for you. Of course, accidents happen and things break even when you're being careful. Please just let us know.
Porter-crib, additional blowup mattress available at your request. Games and books and even bikes or sleds also available. The home is suitable especially for couples, extended family or a smaller family or friends traveling together.
* We are not able to accommodate large groups of friends.
Feel free to contact us with any special needs or circumstances and we will of course consider.
We would also consider extremely well-behaved dogs :-)
House is set into the hill with beautiful views of the tree-lined street (but there are stairs leading to front porch/house so not wheel-chair accessible).
Check-in may be possible earlier during weekends and especially during summer. Please feel free to inquire with initial request about check-in and parking.
Happy to accommodate if we can.
Please be respectful and treat our home with care and consideration and we promise that you will enjoy yourselves and your stay.
We take off our shoes in the house.
Children are of course welcome. Because the house is not completely "child proof" (and we have some many items from our travels that intrigue kids :-) we request that you consider whether our home would work for your particular child(ren).
Absolutely NO smoking please.
Feel free to use the kitchen, bathrooms etc. but be considerate and clean up after yourself. Enjoy the games, or DVD player but please put things back when done. Pets considered under certain circumstances (dogs only) for an additional deposit.
Finally, we have incredibly nice upstairs neighbors (house is a two-family) so we just ask that you come In quietly especially if returning really late in the evening.
From May 1 - 31, 2018 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
