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.
How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
