The space
The room has a marvelous view of majestic old trees in one direction, and a panoramic view of the hillside and Boston Harbor in the other direction. It is fully furnished, including a new Queen-size bed. The shared kitchen is fully equipped; rent includes WiFi, utilities, laundry facilities, easy on street parking. Bathrooms (three of them) and common areas (two living rooms, big balcony, eat-in kitchen, front and back yards and deck with grille) are shared. Ocean views from most windows, ocean breezes, high ceilings and wood floors, crown moldings, carved fireplaces, and custom Victorian decor distinguish this charming home.

People have compared it to the Weazely's house in Harry Potter--something fascinating around every corner, with books, games, and artwork left behind by the world travelers, artists, engineers and medical people who have lived here. The house combines the homey comfort of a vintage farm house (it was a wedding present from the farmer who owned the hill to his daughter, in 1880, and still has the farmhouse-style kitchen) with the elegance of art nouveau-style decor in the bedrooms and shared areas--paintings, elegant carved fireplaces, colored glass and bay windows, and more. It was built at a time when architects wanted to celebrate local resources such as fine-grained varieties of wood, abundant light, and flexible uses of space and whimsical exterior color. There are inspiring views of the harbor islands and the city skyline and of huge leafy trees; large balconies to relax on with Breughel-like views of historic houses marching down to the bay; you can watch sailboats floating on the harbor in the distance or see the city lights blinking on at night, or just watch the blue jays and cardinals play nearby in the giant trees.

Where you’ll be

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

This is a safe residential neighborhood of Boston, with giant leafy trees, century-old Victorian houses decorated with gingerbread, colorful ranks of 1920's triple-deckers, and rolling hills with unexpectedly pretty views of city skyline, hillside, and ocean.
Several restaurants within walking distance with "best of Boston" write-ups, also grocery stores, ice cream shop, and breakfast cafe on the way to the subway station. Fifteen minutes from Santander Bank headquarters and the Italian consulate. Historical sights within biking distance include the John F. Kennedy Museum and Library, the Uphams Corner cemetery, and the oldest house in Boston!

I am a health psychologist and music therapist from Boston, Massachusetts. I grew up in Italy and attended university in the Boston area. I play guitar and write music and sing with a world music group called Urban Myth. My favorite author is Terry Pratchett at the moment; I love to dance. I like a sleeping space that is quiet and dark; my ideal place to stay would have frequent transportation connecting it to the city center, by bus or by subway/metro. I love living in Boston, and enjoy helping guests find fun things to do here; I speak Italian and French, and understand Spanish. My house has a extra musical instruments for guests to play, as well as books and games.

I am occasionally away on trips when guests come, but I have a wonderful assistant who speaks English and Italian and is here almost every day. We have a self-check-in process to allow more flexibility for guest arrival and departure.
