This duplex was in a perfect location for our trip. Getting the keys was seemless , even with my late night arrival. I went with my friends who had a 1 year old with them. Initially the host was concerned about the stairs, but we had no problem blocking them with chairs, etc to make it child safe. The neighborhood was super child friendly with a playground in the park out back and a walking trail nearby without any car traffic. I was there for MIT business and it was a straight 45 min walk to campus on mass ave. I could have caught the #1 bus to make it shorter but the weather was so stunning in late September I preferred the walk. I think there are only a couple of things I was not expecting of this place: 1) it was bare of all condiments, etc in the kitchen. This was my first airbnb experience but from what my friends told me there are usually basics like sugar, salt, and pepper. I left those behind after my stay in hopes that the next guests could use them. 2) we accidentally damaged the wall with our stroller while we were there. We knew we had to pay the damages, but the price we were charged was a bit more expensive than we were expecting. I suppose that is just the liability associated with staying at an airbnb vs a hotel. In the end it was worth it to be able to stay with my friends in the same place and have the comfort of home. We will be back in Boston in June for our reunion and I hope to be able to stay here again. This time I will have my family as well, so will need to negotiate to see if we can have that many people in the 2 bedroom. Coming from Cali we are used to small places and having stayed there I would have no concerns about sharing this space for two families since our children are very small and co-sleep usually. Thanks for the stay and the lovely location and hope to be back soon.

John has a wonderful home in the perfect area in Boston. The beautiful greenbelt in back led us to the most desirable parts of downtown Boston, all within walking distance of historical sights, or transportation anywhere. We loved it and would highly recommend it.

I arrived from HongKong after a 15 hour flight, my flight was late and I reached the house after midnight. I was worried that I would need a hotel because of the late hour. Nonetheless I got the keys and all was as discussed and agreed. John has a very nice place in a fantastic location, I walked to most places or took the public transport system from southbay. I can only recommend it :)
