Homestay in Roslindale - Boston, United States

About the Homestay

Urban Modern

My home is located in Roslindale. It is about a 15 minute bus ride to Forest Hills Station where you can access the orange line to go Downtown. You may also walk 15 minutes to the Bellevue commuter rail stop and take the purple line into downtown. I live in a multi-family home with my significant other Fred. I am a certified ESL teacher who teaches first grade. Fred works for Uber. We love seeing movies, going to the Gym, taking Yoga classes, and dancing. Our home is located in Roslindale which is a very safe place with lots of exciting things to do. Roslindale Village has lots of quaint shops and delicious restaurants. You may walk there in about 10 minutes or take a short bus ride. Dedham Legacy Place is about a 15-20 minute bus ride away. This mall has lots of shopping, restaurants/bars, a movie theatre and even Kings Bowling.
We love to host travelers and students from around the world. Our house has bedrooms on the first, second and third floors for guests/travelers. There are 2 shared bathrooms for all students/travelers to use. Check-in time is at 4pm and check out time is 10 am.

Each bedroom can have a single or double occupancy. We have a relaxing outdoor space with garden furniture in the spring and summertime. I expect you to cancel one week prior to your arrival date in order to receive a 50% refund. I also expect payment upon arrival in cash. Thank you!

    We loved staying with Lynda! She was very helpful, friendly and actually provided more than we expected. She offered a light breakfast every morning and even helped us out with towels, shampoo and conditioner! (It was our first homestay, and we would only do that for a few days and stay in hotels after that, so we weren't very well prepared). If we would return to Boston, we'd definately ask if Lynda would be willing to host us again!

    Things are not as it seems in the picture provided. A guest accidentally soil a bedsheet on her arrival and wais made to go through stressful moment of seeing that the old sheets are washed of the stain, I had to move out to rent a hotel the following day. Too many instructions.

    Homestay Host Family Lynda in ,

    This guest menstruated all over my sheets and refused to wash them. I would never host her again because of the lack of respect she showed me and my home and her lack of personal hygiene.
