A well-designed bedroom, in a historical 19th century Boston Brownstone. Sunny north facing large windows looking over the treetops and partial city skyline. Modern shared bathroom next to bedroom in an international & professional household. Located in historic Fort Hill/Highland Park neighborhood, 5 min walk to the T (Metro) Orange line, 3rd stop from Back Bay city center, walk to Longwood Medical Area, MFA, Northeastern, Fenway & South End.

The space

Welcome to my home at Alvah Kittredge Brownstone in the historic, friendly and diverse neighborhood of Fort Hill/Highland Park.

The House:
My 142 year-old, newly restored classic Boston Brownstone home has four equally unique bedrooms available in this 3 level penthouse apartment (see also Custom Bedroom, Master Bedroom Suite, & Loft Bedroom).

The Room:
A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The bedroom is well designed for a guest and ideal for long term stays. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 120sqft (11.2sqm).

Guest access

Dedicated kitchen pantry (with green personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), fridge, washer and dryer, kitchen, living room.

Interaction with guests

I'm a social and hospitable host who loves to share his home with others. I was born and raised in Boston, went to university literally down the road at Northeastern and so with plenty of knowledge I would be more than happy to help. I work from home and so usually around if you ever needed anything. My mother lives in a separate apartment downstairs (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her) and I stay at my girlfriend's across the park. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.

Other things to note

The house is actually as it seems in the photos everyday; well maintained common spaces, so I simply ask guests to clean after themselves to leave the common space in order.

The modern bedroom is part of my 4 bedroom apartment, and shares a common bathroom next to it with two other guest bedrooms. (3 flights of stairs total)

Our area is considered safe and quiet for Boston, but this is the city, and anything can happen anywhere at any time so I always like to tell people to have common sense in travels in the whole city. We are walking distance to many good cafes, bars, restaurants down Tremont st past the T (metro station) and a ~$8 Uber ride to the nightlife of the Back Bay.

Jonathan's home was beautiful - comfy, spacious, super clean, and oh so organized. Jonathan anticipated so many needs/niceties, e.g. having water pictures and glasses in the room, color coding cabinets by guest room to simplify dish and cabinet usage. Really impressive. And he helped me move in!! And the neighborhood was great. Super close to the train and stores. Also, Beta Burger is AMAZING. Anyone staying must try. It's not just beef burgers.

A home away from home! Jonathan's house is exactly how it looks in the picture and in the description. It is in a great location! Jonathan is an excellent host who is very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely stay in his house again if I come back to Boston.

Jonathan was an excellent host, he was very friendly and welcoming and provided us with good restaurant suggestions. His place was immaculately clean and the room was big enough for the 2 of us. The aircon was also much appreciated. The appartment was well located a short walk from the subway and the locals were friendly, even inviting us to their fete. We would definitely recommend Jonathan's place for a comfortable stay in Boston.

This is what I call a perfect Airbnb stay! Jonathan is an exceptional and great host: available, resourceful, supportive and goes above and beyond to make staying at his place the best experience ever. The room is exactly as described, clean and tidy, big enough and the location is very convenient. I can't describe enough what a good place and how amazing Jonathan was. I would definitely come back!

Jonathan's home was absolutely lovely and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Boston area. It looks exactly like the pictures, very clean and everything in its place. Jonathan and I were never able to cross paths, but he reached out and checked in to make sure everything was going well, and was always easy to contact. He really went above and beyond, providing in depth instructions for everything, and little extras like the welcome postcards and maps/recommendations of the area.

Born and raised in Boston, to parents from former Portuguese islands in the Atlantic ocean. I'm an international, global citizen who loves travel, food, cultures, languages, history, current events and much more. I'm a former biomedical engineer (cardiovascular, sports medicine) now working in residential real estate (investments, design & development, management) & loving it! I also spend time on issues I'm passionate on, one of which is education where I sit on the board of a school.

I love hosting guests in my home and getting to meet different people from all over the world and give them the best experience in my home that I look for when I travel all over on Airbnb. The engineer in me loves feedback, and to make improvements so please feel free to share your thoughts so in turn other guests will have an even better experience.

Fun fact: I studied Mandarin for 6 years and sadly forgot most of it, so I'd love to practice it with you if you speak it :)
