About the Area

Just steps to the Red Line, and a straight easy trip to downtown, Umass, MGH, Harvard, MIT. Connecting to Longwood, Boston Medical and more. Located on a corner with a fenced in yard in a neighborhood of tree lined streets and lovely architecture. Walk to terrific restaurants, a convenience store, Irish bakery and pub. Because the house sits at the back entrance of the subway, there is the low rumble of trains entering and leaving the yard - but this also means you can enjoy your coffee in the kitchen and not head to the station until you see the train coming!

    The room is large, clean and private. Arrival and other arrangements were easy and Moo's house is very quiet. Boston accommodation is pricey but Moo has a reasonable rate. I would seek out this property again if I needed a place to stay in Boston.

    Moo is a very considerate and caring host with a lovely house in an attractive neighborhood, great lodgings and quick access to the metro. Looking forward to staying there again.

    Moo was an excellent host! She made us feel welcome in her home and provided a beautiful space for us. She was accommodating when our move-out dates changed and was super helpful in sharing local recommendations. I would absolutely recommend staying at Moo's place.

    Our stay was amazing, Moo is such a great host and made sure we had everything that was needed. The room and house cannot be any better really, cozy and comfortable, near to the red T station from where you can get pretty much anywhere, and near to a ton of places to eat and convenience stores. Would go back without even thinking about it.

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.
