I stayed at a room in the village for a month and a half. I could not speak any higher of my experience. This was unlike anything Ive ever experienced. The actual space was immaculate with such attention to detail--a fully stocked fridge, fresh flowers, weekly cleaning company, beautiful interior design, TV with cable, air conditioning, laundry in the basement. The location was perfect as it was just a 3 minute walk from the T and just feet from Brookline Village which has tons of great restaurants, yoga studios, etc. It was also very residential and quiet which I appreciated, with lots of beautiful parks in the neighborhood. I felt super safe and taken care of the entire time. I could go on forever about how ideal the space and location were, but I would be amiss to not mention the hosts, Charles and Siobhan and the rest of the family. Siobhan put tangible effort into getting to know me, listening to my concerns and needs, and making me feel so seen and taken care of. No request was too great for Siobhan and Charles--they fed me, helped me move all my bags and boxes, drove me to work on occasion, and helped me with my every need. I never felt like I was inconveniencing them, but instead, they made me feel like my comfort was a top priority.
If you're visiting Boston or staying for an extended period of time, there is not a doubt that this is the place you need to stay. Ive told others that this Airbnb experience was an absolute miracle--I felt like family immediately and I was fully taken care of. Siobhan and Charles will forever hold a special place in my heart! Thank you for everything!
