    The Steve‘s is a home away from home. I enjoyed the hospitality from them as well as the respect when I preferred to keep to my own. The backyard is beautiful and the room is spacious with all amenities provided. I even had the chances to learn to cook on my own and of course, tasted a lot of tasty food from S. and enjoyed the violin/piano sessions from V.

    As I have been studying at Harvard and MIT. The house is literally 2 buses away (1 hour 10 minutes) from Harvard Yard ( Bus No. 52 then Bus No. 71 via Watertown) on weekdays. On weekend, you can hop on the Bus No. 36 then Orange Metro Line via Forest Hills ( hub) to Downtown or the campus. Just a reminder, the Metro system in Boston and Bus No. 36 is running till 1 AM at midnights, which allows you to explore the city at your free will.

    Definitely will come back for stay when I’m in Boston next time.

    We loved staying with Steve! Our three nights in Roxbury truly felt like a home away from home. The room was quiet and spacious. The bed was clean and comfortable---and quite honestly one of the best that we've slept in after touring the contiguous U.S! Our favorite part about staying with Steve was the convivial atmosphere he created when inviting us into his home. We shared a meal, and discussion and truly felt at rest among a new friend. I would recommend anyone to stay here who wanted to create a new chapter in their book for a lifelong memory. Thank you Steve, Egészségére!

    We had a great time at Steve's house! A wonderful quiet place, a huge beautiful house with a garden, a wonderful cozy room with a fireplace! Birds sing in the garden and squirrels play. Steve and his family are very attentive, friendly, intelligent, hospitable people, Steve is always ready to help and give advice. The house has a large kitchen in which it is pleasant to cook, a bathroom, a living room where you can relax in the evening. Nearby are shops, a confectionery, a hairdresser, a post office, a bus stop, etc.
    This is a great place, I recommend everyone to stay at Steve's, thank you!

    Steve is friendly and laid back. Available if you need him and not under foot if you want to be left alone. He’s been incredibly flexible as we wait for closing on our new home and allowed me to do my artwork on his back patio. He’s a really friendly and fun person! Use of the kitchen is great. We have made our first new friend in the area!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

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.
