About the Homestay
We offer a beautiful homestay in Winthrop, 5 miles from downtown Boston and very convenient via the MBTA transit (bus to the Blue Line). Winthrop is a quaint, safe seaside peninsular community home to many great outdoor activities (run, beach, bike) and independently-owned, amazing restaurants (Italian, Mediterranean, Greek, Chinese, BBQ, Pizza & Sandwiches). Plus all within 1/2 mile distance you will find a grocery market, gym, library, hair and nail salons, art galleries and more!
Our Homestay Apartment offers 3 spacious, spotless bedrooms (with ceiling fans) and a shared bath. Our home is large and the homestay accommodations are separate (with its own kitchen, dining room, entrance/exit).
Contact me if you are considering superior housing in a quaint small town that is just minutes from the hustle and bustle of beautiful Boston!

I had a great in Winthrop with Cathleen. The area is nice with easy access into the middle of Boston. Guests stay in an apartment attached to the house so you are very independent and can come and go as you like. Having a few other guests there makes it sociable, but you always have your own room and privacy. The house was lovely and they were great hosts. Thank you for a great stay in Bosotn!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
