    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!

    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

    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
