This was my first stay at an Airbnb and I didn't know what to expect. Donald was fantastic: friendly, great company, and extremely knowledgeable about the area. He made great recommendations about restaurants and things to do. I felt like I was staying with an old friend. The location is perfect for biking to Alewife station or walking to the bus. I walked and biked a lot. Restaurants, coffee shops, and the minuteman bike path are all within a quarter mile of Donald's. The room and entire apartment were all very clean and comfortable. I would stay at Donald's again and I highly recommend his place.

Don's apartment was great! I was in town to attend a training held at the nearby First Parish Unitarian Church. The proximity of Don's apartment meant I could walk to and from the church every day, so unlike other trainees, I didn't have to worry about parking or traffic -- it was great! Both Don and his roommate Sami were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable. I liked that both spent time chatting with me, sharing a little about themselves, etc. My room was very comfortable, with soft sheets and blankets, a roomy closet, reading lamp, plants, wifi connection, and a great space heater. I doubt that I needed to lock my door, but I liked that I was able to. I didn't spend much time in the rest of the apartment, but it was very clean, charming, and inviting.

This was my (and my wife's) first experience with AirBnB so we were pretty nervous. Donald was extremely accommodating and made sure his local expertise was available if we needed advice on things to do and see in the area. The apartment was very well kept and very comfortable, and our host made us feel welcome. It's also in a perfect location to walk around Arlington and enjoy the area. Donald definitely made our first AirBnB experience a positive one, and we will certainly be recommending his listing to others who are looking at visiting Arlington.

My stay here exceeded a month, so I am very confident in recommending this place. Don and his other room mate Sami are simply put wonderful people. One is lucky to share a space with these guys. They are full of knowledge and witty comments, making every conversation interesting. You'll get tons of inspiration on where to go and definitely get the opportunity to share a meal. If you're a food junkie you've come to the right place. The place is a bit of a commute if you want to explore the city of Boston, but manageable (I did this every day). Being situated a bit outside of Boston city means that this area is more quiet and makes it easy to go out the door for a non-urban walk :) Will definitely come back!

Donald's place is very nice! It's extremely clean and has everything you need for either short time or long-term stay. It's convenient to public transportation. Most importantly, Donald is such a nice host and touring guide! We have spent a lot of great times together, a lot of fun days! Really feels like home!

Donald and his roommate were really kind, open and helpful. My friend and I immediately felt at home. There is nothing better than a good talk and hearing stories from each other after a long day of exploring the city. Donald also provided breakfast with a cute little note that made us feel welcomed. He tried his best to give us the best experience we can possible get. The place was really comfortable and clean. I would recommend it to everybody who is visiting Boston. Getting downtown is really convenient and also Arlington is a cute, little neighborhood with some good places to grab a bite to eat at night. Thanks to Donald and his roommate, you guys helped to make this trip memorable! :-)
