About the Homestay
Large two family colonial style home with beautiful landscaped yard with 3 bedrooms 1.5 baths (that's shared), medium size kitchen, with dining room, living room and a sun room where you can go and hang out. It also has a finish basement. Minutes away from the YMCA health club, so if you are into fitness you can go and workout, use the sauna, hot tub, weight room, swim and participate in lots of other activities found at the gym. A park is right next to my home, you can go jogging, running and play basketball and tennis. I am only minutes away from the commuter rail train station that gets you into the City of Boston, and am only 10 minutes walk to the bus stop. Then you will have a 15 minutes bus ride to Forest Hills station. From Forest Hills you will take the Orange Line train (20 minutes) to the City of Boston (Downtown).
I have two daughters. One is a registered nurse out of state; the other getting her master's degree. I love cooking; if you want you can cook with me, you supply the ingredients.
I have a piano so if you are into music you are welcome to use it.

I don't smoke so would prefer a non-smoker (Absolutely no smoking cigars, cigarettes, weed, marijuana, ganja, vaping or burning incense inside my home or outside my home). Please keep my house secure by locking the door when you enter and exit. Please do not adjust the heating system. Please ask me and I will be happy to adjust it. Keep noise to a minimum at night because I have tenants on the first floor of my home. Please feel free to use the kitchen but clean up after yourself. Please clean up after yourself in the bathroom because it is a shared bathroom. Please do not invite strangers into my home; if you would like to invite a friend over please let me know in advance. Please enjoy your stay and treat and respect my house as you would your own home!
Smoking is not allowed.
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 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.
