About the Homestay
I live in Hyde Park, (BOSTON) MA in a single-family home with my miniature black poodle. All the bedrooms and main bathroom are upstairs. Downstairs, I have a comfortable living room with a fireplace, dining room, kitchen, laundry room and a half-bathroom which opens to the deck and backyard. My husband served in the US army for over 24 years and we moved around a bit including several tours in Europe where my sons were born. We have lived in Hyde Park for over twenty years and I am retired from Trust banking. PUBLIC TRANSPORT is the best way to move around Boston. It takes 5-minute to walk to Bus 32 which takes 10 minutes to Forest Hills Station where you can take Orange Line to the Downtown Crossing area and beyond. If Public Transport is not your thing, or you need a car to visit other parts of New England, one of my sons has his own car rental business. I prefer renting to women and I have room for a maximum of 4 people preferably women or a mature couple.

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.
