About the Homestay
I have been hosting international students for over 8 years, we have great fun. My fiancé is from Brazil we have a little dog that don't go near the bed rooms, but is fun if you choose to spend time with him. I have worked in Hotels for over 2o years and my fiancé Jose is a chef. I now work in the medical field as a medical assistant. We are in a great community, on Charles River. 4 single rooms, and one more with a bunk bed. Come chill by the pool in the garden after a day of exploring Boston!
I have hosted 14 year old kids to 60 year old business men. I have a hospitality personality and I will help you reach your goals during your stay: of having fun in Boston, taking your class, visiting your loved ones, or just having a change of pace for yourself! If there is anything I can do to assist you. - Carol

About the Area
Our house is located in historic Dedham, just south of Boston. The area is called Riverdale or Dedham Island, because you need to go over a little river bridge over the Charles River in every direction. We are surrounded by beautiful parks and recreation and are a short walk to public transportation. We are 13 miles from the airport, close enough to the city with the feel of the country. We are walking distance from shopping and dining and a short drive to everything else!

It was a wonderful experience to be hosted by Carol; The room was clean and well arranged with fruits and beverages all for my comfort, the bathroom was very tidy, and above all the host (Carol) is a really caring and warmth hearted lady. She Picked me up from the bus station the day I arrived, showed me around the city during my stay and dropped me off at the bus station at the end of my stay (all at her own cost of fuel). I would recommend this host to anyone.
