This home is artistically decorated with light colored walls, bright furniture and beautiful artwork. My family occupies the first floor of the home. The 2nd floor apartment offers you a friendly, warm and comfortable environment in which to come home.

Enjoy a relaxing retreat including a Living Room, Dining Room, Full Kitchen with dishwasher and disposal along with an eat-in Nook, two bedrooms and one full bathroom (1st bedroom with King-size bed, 2nd bedroom with Queen-size bed and the Sun porch off the Living Room has a two Twin Beds). All guests sleep in beds, not sleep sofas or futons.

A deck is located off the Kitchen at the back of the house.

This home is located on Forest Street, Medford, MA close to Downtown Boston, Fenway Park and major colleges (Tufts University is 1 mile away), with easy access into Boston using public transportation.

Take an Express Bus #326 (Monday-Friday) from Medford Square to Government Center (see time restrictions on MBTA.com) or Bus #134 from Medford Square to Wellington Station then take the Orange Line train into the city with connections to other parts of town. Or drive to Wellington Station and park your car and take the Orange Line Train into the city. You can purchase your Charlie Card at Wellington Station. Depending on time of day and mode of transportation it takes approximately 15-30 minutes to get into the city from my location in Medford.

Family Vacation: Come visit Boston and enjoy all that it has to offer. Use this home as your 'home-base' and explore the surrounding areas. Take a boat to Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod, the train to New York City for a Broadway show, or rent a car and drive to Kittery for outlet shopping, a lobster dinner or a walk on the beach. You are in a perfect location to explore what Boston has to offer at an affordable rate.

Corporate Housing: Relocation can be difficult, especially when you can't take your family with you - at first. Being comfortable in your surroundings is important when you move into a new city. We know you'll feel comfortable and at home with the spacious surroundings and friendly neighbors.

Events in Boston: If you have a wedding, convention, looking at colleges in the area or another special occasion to visit Boston - this home is a wonderful place to come and stay with your friends and family. Please be aware - this is not a 'party house' - please respect our wishes.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with the home itself and its location - a short walk to Medford Square and it's close proximity to Boston. The 2nd floor rental apartment is spacious and bright and can accommodate 6 guests comfortably - all in beds (not sleep sofas or futons). You can walk to everything Medford has to offcer - restaurants, bakery, banks, liquor stores, bus stops, etc. We are proud to offer our guests a beautiful, clean, and well-maintained property in a safe area for you to enjoy while in Boston. Come experience our "home away from home" for yourselves - we look forward to meeting you!

Excellent experience. Best place to enjoy Boston!

  • 5 of 5

Coming to Boston has been one of our best life experiences. From the beauty of the New England landscape to the welcoming spirit of the city, we have enjoyed every minute.

But the best of the best has been your wonderful apartment and your hospitality. Every detail has been taken care of (thank you for all the "extras" and for everything, including the advice to move around the city). It is a very cozy and welcoming house, and we have also enjoyed it a lot.

Thank you so much for a very pleasant stay. The apartment is absolutely perfectly located for seeing Boston and has provided us everything we needed for our stay.

We are sorry our stay was so short this time but we will definitely keep it in mind for future visits. Your hospitality is much appreciated.

College visits/respite

  • 5 of 5

Dear Rose-

Thank you very much for your gracious welcoming of our family into your wonderful apartment/home. You seemed to think of everything to truly make this feel like a "home away from home". We were able to relax after touring several colleges and seeing all that Boston has to offer! Should our daughter choose to go to school in the Boston area we will eagerly make another appointment to stay here.

We Love staying here

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay with you in Medford was just as wonderful as our first. We really appreciated all the little extras. We took the 96 bus to Davis Square each morning to get into Boston - it worked perfectly.

Hope to see you and stay here again - as long as my daughter is living in Medford, this works great for us. I'd also recommend this place to people who are interested in seeing all that the Boston area has to offer.
