This listing for a sublet of my home which I share with my 6 yr old daughter, while we travel. Located in a quiet neighborhood, it has lots of light, backyard and full veggie and herb garden to enjoy. We love it! It is truly a special spot.
I am looking for guest to take the house for at least a 4 to 5 day min. this is out of courtesy for my friend who is overseeing the sublet while I am away. It is simply easier for him to manage.
The house is located on a quiet residential street and is accessible to buses leading into Boston. The house is perfect for a family as the second bedroom is a child's room, there is also a playhouse in the backyard. Keep in mind that this house is a sublet and I currently live here with my daughter, thus my decor and belongings occupy the space. I will pack away clothing so that the dressers can be used. I am an avid gardner and the backyard has an organic veggie and herb garden to use. Feel free to eat what you like! The house is full of light, plants and my eclectic decor. I am an art professor and have a huge book collection, feel free to read what you like, but return the books before you leave. I treasure them.
I love it here and I'm sure you would too.
Guest have access to the full house. However, my artist studio is upstairs. If a creative type is interested in using the studio, I could clean it up and make the drafting table ready to use. The basement has a washer/dryer and is also my personal storage space. Like any basement, it is dingy , wet (due to low water table) and dark. The basement should be used only to wash clothes. There is also a garage which I further use for studio and storage space. This space should not be used by guests.
I will be traveling in South Africa and Spain during your stay, but a friend will be available to help out with needs/issues.
Like any space surrounded by trees and organic matter, bugs on occasion come into the house. During the summer months only, it is not uncommon to see ants or spiders from time to time. This is natural due to the location, I have learned to live with them.
Trash day is Sunday morning, please be sure to take the trash cans located on the side of the house down to the curb for pick up on Monday morning.
I expect guest to respect that this is my personal home, I live here, and to fully respect the space and my belongings as you would your own. This is not a hotel and the space does not feel like a hotel or rental that other guests are constantly moving in and out of. Please do not light candles in the house or anything that would be a fire hazard.
Please clean up after yourself.
No smoking in the house
No pets please
Please be respectful of my belongings and do not move anything around.
When using the firepit, please use caution.
If plants look like they could use a little water, feel free to give them a little!
