We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing house over the course of the academic year. It is perfect for living space, backyard, and a driveway. We were able to host our family for Thanksgiving in Boston with plenty of space. The landscaping is beautiful and the house feels hidden in the city surrounded by forest and outdoor space.

It is a great location to access the Arnold Arboretum + Forest Hills orange line (about a mile away). During the summer we would walk to the train station, but there is always the option of the bus at the bottom of the hill as well.

The neighbors have been amazing, and with the house being at the end of a long neighborhood we have never felt unsafe. The landlords were very attentive and within reach if anything needs to be fixed. They have been more than helpful to make this our home for the last year. It was a seamless move in process as they provided us with a welcome book and several recommendations in the area.

All in all, it is a fantastic house for our year in Boston. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.
