The space

Meticulously renovated 1873 victorian on a sheltered street in the Hyde Park area of Boston. Enjoy over 2000 sq ft as well as a grill & patio in the private back yard! Our home is a 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath single-family with a fully equipped modern kitchen and a dinning room with a table that expands to seat eight. The second floor bedrooms have a king, a full and a big room with a twin that also has a queen air mattress and a twin futon mattress if needed. The third floor bedroom has a queen. All the bedrooms have window AC. Throughout the house there are beautiful period features, hardwood floors, 6 marble fireplaces (just for looks, not functional) and pocket doors. In addition, there is off street parking for 4+ cars. Enjoy wifi, blu-ray/dvd player, Apple TV and Wii.

Our home is a great place to relax after exploring Boston for the day. It is in the southern side of the city in a nice quiet neighborhood. It is 7.5 miles from our place to Copley Square in downtown Boston. You can easily get downtown by driving less than 10 minutes to the Forest Hills T Station on the Orange Line and hopping on the train for a quick ride to Back Bay or Downtown Crossing etc. There is also a bus to the Forest Hills T Station from our neighborhood and it is a 12 minute walk to the Fairmount Commuter Rail. It takes around 30 minutes to get downtown. It can vary (less or more) depending on traffic and destination.

Also enjoy the outdoors with a hike in the Blue Hills Reservation only 3.5 miles away. The local YMCA has a great indoor pool, gym & workout rooms and offers day passes and is less than a 10 minute walk. The FREE DCR Olsen Outdoor Swimming Pool and Splash Pad is less than a 10 minute drive. Don't miss the famous Ron's Gourmet Ice Cream & Bowling, Rock Spot (indoor rock climbing) and Sky Zone (indoor trampoline park.) Also, close enough to Cape Cod for a day trip.

Our two wonderful indoor cats will be home. They are great hosts. They require little to no maintenance just some attention from people who adore cats:) Occasionally, we can take them with us if that works better for your party. Just let us know and we will see if it can work.

For some dates there may be some flexibility for a one night stay. Just ask.

Please email with any questions and interests.

This a great home for a couple or family to experience Boston & much more!

My family and I stayed at Katy's house for a weekend. Upon arrival we felt very welcomed into their home. The house is clean, beautiful and spacious, and the rooms are large. Their two cats are very friendly. Due to an allergy, Katy kept the third floor bedroom cat-free prior to our arrival, which was very effective and appreciated! The kitchen was well stocked and it was easy for us to cook and eat meals at the house. Katy even left us some snacks which we appreciated after a long ride there! Parking was great. The location was easily accessible with lots of amenities close by. Katy provided me with information on the house prior to arrival which was very helpful. She has also prepared a binder of information at the house about the house and the area. This was a nice touch that made it easy to acquaint ourselves to the house and the area! Katy was very quick to respond whenever I had any inquiries both before and during our stay. We had a great time there and would definitely stay again!

What a lovely property ! This was the perfect house to stay over a 3 day weekend : the location is very convenient, there are lots of very nice places to eat in the area and the commute to Boston is very easy and fast. The house itself has a lot of character and charm and was big enough to accommodate us all very comfortably since we were 4 adults and 3 children. We felt at home straight away and the kids were thrilled to play with the 2 cats. Katy was a real delight to deal with: at all times she was available for questions, made sure we had everything we needed and even left some food and cookies for us when we arrived ! We would definitely return to the house, should we be staying in Boston again. It really made our weekend all the more special.

Katy was a wouderful host! The communication with her was very easy and friendly. The house is beautiful and very clean. When we arrived, we found some cookies and cold drinks for us! :) I recommand this house to everyone! Katy a été super avec nous! La communication est très facile, rapide et ultra sympathique. La maison est très belle, propre et dans un merveilleux quartier non loin du centre ville. L'accueil fut très chaleureux, même si nous n'avons pas pu rencontrer Katy. Elle nous avait laissé des biscuits et des boissons froides! :) Je recommande fortement cette demeure pour un séjour à Boston!

Katy is amazing! The house is spacious, very clean and well decorated. We had delicious cookies and a plate of fresh fruits on our arrival. We even had milk, eggs and refreshments in the fridge that Katy left for us saying we could take them. There is also a lot of clean bathroom towels left on our disposal. We had the best hostess, Itsy, her cat. If you rent the house make sure to take a really good care of her because she's a wonderful and loving cat. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. We would definitely rent the house again if we go to Boston.

I stayed at Katy's place for two days and I can't say anything but good words about the host and the house. The house provided us with everything we needed such as beds, towels, and an unlimited supply of water and fruit. It is perfect for a group of 4 or 5 people with a lot of space in the house. Katy is an amazing host reminding me of my own mother. She made me feel like I was at home, provided advice and suggestions and constantly maintained communication to make sure our stay was nothing below perfect. I highly recommend staying here and I would come back to Katy's whenever I go back to Boston!

We were six old friends coming to Boston to take a cruise but we wanted a day to explore Boston before embarking on the ship. This was our first experience using Airbnb...and it will not be our last! The house was perfect for us and Katy was a most accommodating hostess...answering many questions beforehand to make our Boston experience the best. We felt “at home” the moment we walked in the door.

We have lived in the Hyde Park area for Boston for over 17 years. We love the suburban feel to our neighborhood as well as having easy access to downtown Boston. We are a fun, active, respectful family.
