A well-designed micro studio, in a historical 19th century Boston Brownstone. It's your very own cozy 170+sqft (15sqm) pied-à-terre on the ground level, with north facing windows overlooking a tree lined street. Located in historic Fort Hill/Highland Park, 5min walk to the T (Metro), 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.

A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The studio is well designed for a couple, individual or business travelers. Has 24 hrs self check in, a walk-in shower (premium shampoo, & body cleanser provided), integrated kitchenette (microwave, electric kettle, tea, sugar, coffee, snacks & fridge provided), built-in closet (hair dryer, hangers, iron & iron board provided), custom built-in shelf and desk. Fast and reliable WiFi along with a WiFi hotspot for international guests to stay connected in the city.

Guest access

Bathroom, living room, HD cable tv, kitchenette (microwave, electric kettle, tea, sugar, coffee, snacks & fridge), hair dryer, hangers, iron, iron board & fresh towels located in closet, and full sized bed.

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 (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her outside) and I stay at my girlfriend's across the street. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.

Other things to note

The studio is adjacent to an separate apartment next door, so please simply be considerate. The studio is located on the ground level of the building, up 4 steps off of the sidewalk, and though its a residential neighborhood, its still the city so there will be general background city noise.

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 day/nightlife of the Back Bay.

I had a great stay in Jonathan's place. It is about 10 minutes walk from the metro station which takes you to the city center in about 20 minutes. On arrival, the heating was already on, which was greatly appreciated as snow was falling outside. The place was smartly organised and in perfect shape. Not to forget, tidy and very clean.

I loved my stay here :) Jonathan is an excellent host: friendly but respects your privacy. Same for the communication: fast and accurate. The studio is well-decorated with attention to details, very clean and welcoming. Also, the location is very convenient as it is close to the subway. I would highly recommend this studio.

Arrived at Jonathan's apartment and it was exactly as described - very clever design and clean . Jonathan left lots of useful information and although we never met everything went to plan . Short walk to transport

We had a great two-night stay at Jonathan's studio. Jonathan provided all the information we needed to check in well in advance of our stay. The studio was easy to find by car using the GPS on our phone and we were able to park right outside the front of the property for the entire stay. From reading previous reviews we knew the space was small and cosy but we were pleasantly surprised by the clever use of space. Our main concern had been where we would keep our large suitcases for easy access (this stay was part of a 2-week road trip), but as the suitcases open in half we were able to slide them under the bed when opened up. The studio was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning came in handy with the hot weather. Tea, coffee and creamer cartons were provided, and Jonathan also left us a bottle of beer each in the fridge and a couple of miniature chocolates. The only very minor issue we had was that the windows aren't particularly sound proofed so any noise outside was heard quite clearly inside the studio. Fortunately the area is very quiet so we were only disturbed momentarily on a couple of occasions at night and very early in the morning. All in all this stay was very good value for money and we would highly recommend to others to stay here. Thanks Jonathan!

Very well situated in a charming quiet neighbourhood within easy reach of the 'T' & Mission Hill. The apartment has everything you need, is impeccably clean and tasteful and well thought out. Jonathan's recommendations for dining out were spot-on. Can recommend this without hesitation!
