Cozy room of your own in my 2 bedroom condo near stores, restaurants, and public transit (bus and subway) into Boston. Renovated kitchen and bath. Two cats in residence.
My third floor condo is located in Jamaica Plain, a diverse and active neighborhood in Boston. It has a shared bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, and your own private bedroom with front porch access and great afternoon sunlight. I have lived here for 10 years and been in JP for 15, so know the area well and am happy to give suggestions. This would be great for a visiting medical professional or international student.
The entire unit, except for my bedroom, is yours to use. Your room is right off the living room, which I sometimes/rarely use when I'm home. We'll share the bathroom- one cabinet is all yours. Free laundry is in the pantry (important on the 3rd floor!). TV, wifi, front porch, back porch.
Interaction with guests
Between work and play, I tend to be out frequently . I'm a nurse practitioner and work at 2 local hospitals. I hike, run, do yoga, usually bike to work, and fit a social life in there somewhere. All of that usually means lots of privacy for you! I've successfully lived with many people in this space.
Other things to note
This is a 2 bedroom condo that I live in full time. I try to be conscientious of sustainability- recycling and composting. There are 2 little black kitties- they will snuggle with you if you like that, but no pressure. I do keep the door to your room closed in case guests aren't big cat fans.
One's home is their sanctuary. Please treat mine with care. I've worked hard for it and try to make it as pleasant as possible for guests to stay. :)
I'm a Nurse Practitioner in Cardiology, a runner, and cyclist. I've lived in Boston for 15 years, but am originally from California. I've shared this space for years with housemates. I like AirBnB for the flexibility, but also because I like meeting new people from all over the world.
As for my hosting style- I work a lot and am frequently out with friends. I'm more of a hands off person once we get you settled in, but I'd love to get to know each other over coffee or a glass of wine. I'm of course happy to supply you with local tips, information, umbrella, etc. at any point in your stay.
