Liana is very friendly and helpful. Her home is about 15 minutes (with suitcases) away from T-station "Jackson Square".
The suite we've stayed in is under the roof. It is a really large room, combining bathroom and bedroom. It is an intestestingly decorated room with a lot to look at.
We'll certainly come back!
Chambre très spacieuse avec un lit king size et la salle de bain (douche et baignoire) privative.
Liana est très flexible concernant l'heure d'arrivée et très gentille.
5 star hostess!! Liana is very friendly and outgoing. She will make you feel welcome and provide a very clean and comfortable room. She offered great suggestions on things to do and was always very responsive. Thank you so much Liana!! My Boston memories are made sweeter by having you as a host.
Everything was fine. Liana and her family were wonderful.
The room is very nice and comfortable. Liana´s house is very close to the bus station and a 10 minutes’ walk far from the subway.
If you intend to visit Boston, stay with Liana's family
The house is spacious and comfort. We loved the garden in the morning. Thanks Liana!
Liana is truely an amazing women. From the second we entered her home she made us feel so comfortable. In life it is rare that u come in contact with such a pure genuine down to earth person. Li went above and beyond to help us get a place of Our Own. She made phone calls to her friends and acquaintances asking if there were any rooms or apartments open and we found our apartment that we loves thanks Li. She always offered that until our place was ready she asked us to stay at her home she was so welcoming we felt like family by her and her family and that her house was our house not imposers that are staying in a home that we paid for she also let us stay in the master bedroom which is so beautiful I felt like I was in a suite in a penthouse her children are amazing and just as welcoming as she. Of course having such a wonderful mother like Liana definitely definitely shines thru her children. the whole house she decorated and needless to say it is amazing she has her own hair salon downstairs so ladies if you need to get your hair done. The bathroom has a large hot tube a gorgeous stand up shower. Wifi the tvs are amazing u can watch it all. U will feel at home. And in the summer her backyard is to die for so gorgeous. I highly recommend Liliana she is the best host her home is amazing and you will be nothing less than extremely grateful that you picked her home. I promise you will not want to leave lol. Every cent was well worth it but her n her family are priceless. I hope to spend some more time there myself, in fact i cant wait. She is an amazing host and a remarkable women.
Thank you Li for going above n beyond u will always have a place in our hearts
Very nice stay
A lovely masterbedroom
and a so pleasant conversation for breakfast !
Liana is a very friendly and helpful host. We enjoyed the stay in her house very much and would like to stay there again when in Boston.
Liana is a Great host. Very friendly and helpful for newcomers to Boston. Definitely recommended!!
I loved everything about the house, the landlord and her family. I felt like home. I stayed there for more than 1 and a half months and I felt like home all the time. The landlord, Mrs. Liana is the sweetest lady I have ever met, she is so sweet that I can call her my second mom. She never treated me like a tenant, she got strawberries, breads, jams, milk and bananas for me all the time for free. She used to cook for me sometimes if she was cooking something for the family. The second best part was the dog Raji, I loved him, he was a great timepass. I highly recommend this homestay for anyone. I have invited Mrs, Liana and her family to India. I would love to visit Mrs. Liana any day I am in Boston or anytime I am thinking to stay in Boston.
