About Owner / Property Manager

I am a Registered Pharmacist, worked in Corporate America for many years as a Retail Pharmacist, some in managerial positions.

I have paid my "dues" as they say, worked hard, so now I have opted to take life real easy and "do my own thing!" I have owned several businesses in my time, my latest venture being HomeAway/VRBO which compliments my history of always being in the "people business" I love!

Married, with two teenage boys whom I micromanage with the explicit goal of making sure that they are exemplary & that they make a positive contribution to society. They keep me busy!

However, I am seriously looking forward to the opportunity to host you, whether it's for a couple of days or for much longer.

HomeAway/VRBO seem really exciting! I need your business to do well, so I hope I have convinced you to stop by my place!

Thanks in advance for your booking. Really looking forward to meeting/hosting you:)

Hope to see you soon!

Maureen.

The Diamond Room

  • 5 of 5

Maureen is an amazing host! She made sure that we had everything we needed and more. You forgot something home? No worries, Maureen thought about it FOR YOU!! She also checked up on us to make sure we made it to the places we visited! She also checks on the house to see that you are safe. Woow!

The room is kinda of small but it has everything that you need, AC, Tv, a desk, a bed and a mini fridge! In your room you’ll find a binder with all the information that you need!

Also the house is very clean.

There is bus right infront on the house to get you around the city, very easy to understand just download the app! (It is better for you to take the bus because parking is VERY limited in the city).

If you don’t mind sharing and bathroom, a kitchen and parking in the street ... this place is PERFECT!

Thank you Maureen!!

I'm glad you came because you got along nicely with the others, communicated, abided by the house rules and above all left your room in great condition, all of which I thoroughly appreciate. It was a pleasure hosting you and I'm hoping that next time you are in this neck of the woods, you look us up. Very kind review and I am very grateful:) Greetings to your other half;) Take good care & Stay Blessed!

Clean and inviting room

  • 5 of 5

Maureen is a wonderful hostess; she promptly answered any questions that we had and met our needs. Our room had towels, bathrobes, a small frig - with treats in it, there is TV with a large assortment of TV viewing options, and closet/desk/dresser available, too. Kitchen and bathroom are shared with other guests in the house. We never had any problems with having to wait for the bathroom or using the kitchen. The kitchen frig has a shelf labeled for your food and there is a fully stocked kitchen. A good place to rest your weary bones after a day of site seeing,

Well maintained and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The room was a bit small and we had to share the bathroom, but neither was a problem.

We always had access to the bathroom and we spent the days in Boston, so the room was fine for sleeping. The place is very close to the bus line, which runs to the Metro, which goes right downtown. It was really great and the hostess is a really fine person.

Clean and Good

  • 4 of 5

We had a rocky start because of our timing and miscommunications however we met eye to eye in the end.

Property was clean. Had food in the frig. Bathroom and room were clean. Bed was not the most comfortable but honestly for the price and what is in the area was a great deal. I rated a 3 because was between a 3 to 4 in terms of type of hotel stay.

It was a bit far from Harvard SQ . It was a 45 min lyft/uber and found Rincon Restaurant on bus 34/

I would stay hear again.

I got my deposit back as well as promised.

Owner's Response: Glad that overall it worked out for you. We achieved our goal of delivering a Clean accommodation with a few perks to go with it but Bathroom, Bedroom, kitchen Clean nonetheless! However, we are in Boston not in Cambridge where I dare say the prices are steeper just like the hotels that you eluded to. At the risk of comparing apples and oranges, suffice it to say we do not work off the resources of a hotel nor come anywhere close to their asking price so the comparison was quite an unfair one but instead we are merely a simple operation offering a room in our humble abode. If once again we see "eye to eye" I look forward to your return. Until then Stay Blessed! and thank you for taking the time to write the review:)

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The room was very clean and had everything we could possibly need-snacks, medicines,water, and more in the kitchen. The kitchen was also well equipped with everything we'd need.Maureen was super quick to respond to all our questions and gave us clear instructions on how to find the place get in. We took public transport to Cambridge. The neighbourhood was ok to walk around in during the day, but I'd hesitate to do that at night. Overall our stay was comfortable and we'd stay here again next time.
