    Kimesha and her family have been incredible hosts. Always available to help, and very flexible in all my requests. The location is great, close to transport for downtown and, if you cycle, about 15/20' away from nearly any place in Boston. There are two Rooms on the top floor available for rent. They are both amazing, spacious, bright, and will give you great privacy. I had to work and take several calls at odd hours, but this was not a problem at all in this context. The room gets very hot in summer (a little fan was very helpful). Also, the house, as it is perfectly normal with kids and a cat around, is not always perfectly clean. But, if you are someone who does not mind adapting a little, you won't find better value for money in Boston, especially with such lovely hosts!

    I stayed with Kimesha for 30 days, and I have to say her family was lovely! They gave me a full privacy in my room and I have no problems at all! She even gave a ride to the supermarket or to the train station. Her husband is a gifted talker since I had a wonderful conversations with him about everything. Also her children are so well behaved and adorable. Kimesha saved my life 3 times, by opening her house doors, helping me to book a ticket for my flight and her husband adding a fan that made my room fresher.
    She kept all the time on saying if I need something I just need to ask! And I couldn't been more grateful!.

    The stay was generally great. Family members were always kind to me. They respected my privacy. Kimesha let me and thought me use most of the things in the house.If you've read the other comments and worried about the hygiene don't be. The house was always clean and tidy and the room was large and comfy.
    The only problem was neighborhood. Roxbury is really close to any touristy place than you'll wanna visit. Public transportation is easy in there but you might not feel very safe there (especially in the public transportation areas). No one did anything to harm me but sometimes I felt uncomfortable walking around Roxbury. But as I said house is in a really central location so you can use uber for cheap prices (maximum 20 generally 8-11 dollars).

    First of all Kimesha was a lovely person as was her husband. Her family was absolutely delightful. I was also grateful for the low cost accommodation as staying in central Boston was incredibly expensive. I only found this out after booking a very cheap flight and was horrified at the $2,000 room only for a week prices. Kimesha really dug me out of a hole I dug for myself and I stayed there for only $230 which was a Godsend.
    That being said the house was nothing like the clean beautifully decorated property shown on the Homestay page. The house was simply a mess. Dirty and untidy and didn`t look like it had a lick of fresh paint in many, many years. My bedroom was simply horrible and I didn`t like eating in the kitchen as it was so unclean.
    Breakfast was included in the price but I decided to get my own food as I simply didn`t want to touch anything in the house as it was so dirty. I spent as little time in the house as possible because I felt unclean living there.
    I decided not to do a review but Homestay sent me another request and after some soul searching I decided to write one. I felt this family needed the money and I didn`t want to cause them loss of income.
    Kimesha even gave me a lift back to the airport so I feel very guilty making such a bad review for such lovely people, but after considerable thought I felt that I had an obligation to any future visitors to this house and, with great regret, I would not recommend this property until they get their act together and thoroughly clean and decorate their house.

    Too Dirty and Uncleaned. They do not vare any hygiene at all. I do not recommend at all

    I had construction going on in my home at this time. The guest was aware of this prior to booking an also received a significant discount. Furniture was moved all around, walls were cut out, and large machines were all around. My house is open concept so it is hard to cover up. With that said there are no common areas except the bathroom and the kitchen. Those rooms were not affected by construction and left clean

    I think Kimesha was lovely and the rest of the family too.
    But they could have cleaned a little better.

    Kimesha was absolutely wonderful. A delightful lady.
    The room was clean, and located on the top floor of the house, a good size. The home was very easy to get to by the bus, and Kimesha offered to give me a ride if I needed one. Definitely recommend it. The location was just fine, not near any attractions, but in a safe neighborhood.
