I had an absolutely wonderful month long stay here. Charles was a fantastic host and went above and beyond from the moment I checked in. The house was always spotless and the mini fridge with complimentary snacks and wine was very thoughtful. I can say with absolute certainty that this is by far my best experience with air bnb and I strongly recommend.

Staying at "a room in the village" was one of the best choices I've done to make my stay in Brookline perfect! The great reviews I read about the place and the host are accurate. From the get-go, Charles was quick to respond to my questions and concerns about things like location even before I confirmed the booking. Check-in was smooth, and it was comforting to find my fridge stocked. Siobhan was a pleasure to talk to, and she had great tips about the neighborhood; she even had a flat iron delivered to the house when I mentioned I was looking to buy one after mine malfunctioned. The location was perfect! Brookline village is a safe and pleasant neighborhood, and the street the house is located on was beautiful. There are small nearby parks, and it's a great area to explore on foot. The Brigham and the Longwood medical area are a 15 minute walk.

Charles and Siobhan were the supreme hosts. Siobhan met us very early in the morning with a warm smile and a cup of tea after we arrived on a red eye flight from California. Fresh fruits, bread, juices, cheese and other items in our personal fridge were much appreciated as they helped tide us over until we were able to make it to the market. Charles and Siobhan were always available throughout our stay if we needed anything. The location is outstanding, a short walk to the T stop, as well as to the Longwood Medical Campus, the location of my temporary work assignment. The room is perfect for medical students or residents doing a rotation at one of the nearby hospitals. We appreciated Charles and Siobhan providing us a home away from home!

This was my second stay at A Room in the Village and it once again proved to be nothing less than a dream. The space, the ambiance, the location, the amenities--all perfect. What truly sets a Room in the Village apart from any other Airbnb (or even hotel) that I have stayed in is the distinct attention to detail by hosts Charles and Siobhan. They are thoughtful beyond belief. One anecdote that speaks to this directly--I had to travel to see a sick family member for a week while I was staying in the Village. When I came home, my dishes and laundry were done, there were fresh flowers and candles around the house, and there was a large pot of homemade chicken soup on the stove waiting for me. It is so rare to find such genuine, generous people. A Room in the Village is a true gem and I could not recommend it any higher.

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!

Charles, Siobhan, Ben and Michela made sure my second visit to Boston was even more enjoyable than my previous one. Their place is just a little Bostonian treasure, and I will definitely go back to their place for my next visit. I confirm all I wrote in my previous review by highly recommending them to others staying in Boston for either a short or a longer period of time. I am personally looking forward to seeing all of them again and definitely missing them already.

I had a very comfortable experience. The room was clean and neatly organized, with easy access to the bathroom. In addition, it is located conveniently close to the rest of Brookline and public transportation.
