Roslindale is a cute, quiet community about 35-60 minutes from the Boston airport, depending on traffic. The house has a queen bed, double bed, and double size futon. The kitchen is fully equipped (except a toaster). Lots of books to read and a meditative setting.

A charming old home, beautifully done, welcoming! We liked walking around the neighborhood, street parking was easy. While we had a problem with the heating, the response was rapid. Thanks for the wonderful coffee, with all the alternatives to prepare it!

Fiona was really hospitable and gracious! She very, very kindly let us check in extremely early and check out late to help with international travel with our toddler. The home was very clean, and it has more than you could need in terms of cooking, being self contained etc. I personally found the home a little cluttered and lacking space for guests' bags and personal items. There are also people or owner staying upstairs in the home and their coming and going late at night woke us up once or twice which was inconvenient, although otherwise they were incredibly quiet. All in all, a lovely home with a gracious host who is obviously a lovely person.

We had a great stay at FJ's place in Roslindale. Communication and check-in went smoothly. Roomy, comfortable space for two couples. We walked into Roslindale Village for dinner two nights. Easy to catch the bus and orange line into Boston.

Fiona is a lovely person, warm and friendly. We only saw her once at beginning when she gave us the keys. The location was great, a short walk to Rozzy village. For older people, house lighting was too dim and beds too low for us. The bathroom was older but adequate, but the shower somewhat slippery with no hold bar. Fiona had great appliances and cookware, but the counter space was limited. She left us lots of treats - wine, chocolates, fruit, and nuts.

Our host was very welcoming, considerate and attentive. She kept in touch with us throughout our stay. We had no problems finding the place or parking thanks to her instructions. The location was great for access to the bus line, restaurants and grocery stores. FJ left us wonderful treats: a bottle of wine, cookies, fresh fruit and lots of flowers. There is a large notebook with information about the area and about Boston attractions. The experience was like living in a relative's house - someone who has collected memorabilia, books, photos, throw pillows, and knick-knacks of all sorts for years. In general, the property wasn't typical of other rentals in this regard. It was difficult getting in and out of the platform bed pushed against the wall. The house could use a handyman to fix a few things but overall, the house was clean and things were in working order. Overall, the place was acceptable for our one week stay. Our host deserves a 5 out of 5; the property warrants a 3 1/2.
