Althea, welcomed us into her home and was extremely helpful, in providing us with excellent information about the public transportation system. She even walked us to the nearest trolley station the first day, to ensure that we got off to a good start on our sightseeing vacation in Boston. Everything was very clean and she truly made us feel at home. In Althea's place, I knew that she was always available to provide advice or guidance, but she also allowed us plenty of space and privacy. If I was going to make another visit to the Boston area, I would not hesitate to make another reservation at Althea's place.

I really enjoyed my stay at Althea's house in Boston. The room was spacious, with a large bed, plenty of storage and a desk which certainly came in useful. The house is lovely, positioned in a nice and quiet neighbourhood a only few minutes walk from a number of shops, some food outlets and perhaps most importantly the regular public transportation into central Boston. I would definitively recommend Althea's place if you're visiting!

My Boston experience would not have been as enjoyable if I'd stayed elsewhere. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer. Althea responded to my initial communication promptly. It took exactly no time for me to feel welcome upon my arrival. I went for a jog the first morning I was there. Safe neighborhood and the people were friendly. It was also very scenic. If you're not driving, the house is easy to reach via public transit. I stayed here the weekend of the Boston Marathon. Hotels were charging at least five times what I paid here. One could not ask for more and get it. Don't hesitate, stay here if you can.
