If you go to Boston Phyllis home is the place to stay. The room and the bath are very clean. We were really suprised about the cookies and the breakfast. Both of them were delicious. Phillys is a very nice host and easy to communicate with. We would definitely come back :)

Phyllis's home is absolutely gorgeous, and the stay there was seamless. She's wonderful with communication, the rooms were true to the photos, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and really nice as well! I would recommend Phyllis's place to anyone staying in the Boston area.

Our stay with Phyliss was excellent. She was kind and congenial. Her place was clean and quiet. We will stay again if we should ever venture back to Boston

Nice host! Really. The house is very beautiful with many nice paintings and decorations. It is so convenient to go any place in Boston with 57 and 64 bus stop. 501 and 503 are also in the walking distant. The most important point is that the room is clean and bright with a great and comfortable bathroom. By the way, cookies which made by host herself are pretty good!!I took two boxes of them when I check out! You can enjoy them free when you live there.

Phyllis User ProfilePhyllis is a superhost.

Originally from New Jersey, I fell in love with Boston when I went to Boston University. Although I have relocated several times, I've always came back to Boston. I am a daily long distance swimmer clocking in about 3 hours adding yoga several days a week. I have the vitality of a fit 30 year old, look like a 50 year old but happy to qualify for Social Security!
I love hosting people from all over the world, sharing my eclectic style entertaining, decorating, baking, cooking, gardening, improving my home as I do in the off-season. This year's additional has a gorgeous new bathroom that I live in (when no guests abound).

Having a long history in the hospitality industry and professional sales, Airbnb is a natural for me. (as you will read in the reviews).

I'm involved politically on behalf of Airbnb. In the last two years I have spoken as an Airbnb host in front of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Revenue Department, the City of Boston City Council and ABCD. What fun to be pictured in an article in the "Boston Herald" and appeared in a TV commercial paid for by Airbnb!

Aside from all that I love going to independent moves, reading, going to the theater, concerts and could walk 6 miles to avoid driving in traffic (time permitting).

I am currently single and hopeful. Maybe I'll meet my solemate through Airbnb!
