About the Homestay
Female guests only. 欢迎客人! نرحب بالضيوف ! SAFE family friendly neighborhood. Just a minute from the blue line Beachmont train station. Brand new home. We have the space. New 5 bedroom, 4 bath house. 3 floors of living. Rooms are on the top 3rd floor with beautiful views. Central air conditioning. Style and comfort is what you will see! Privacy is also made a priority. You will only be sharing a bathroom with other home stay guests or you may even have your own bathroom. Guest bathrooms do not need to be shared with the family. We offer the comfort of home. There is a family room and living room for stretching out. We have a wrap around porch outfitted with a comfortable seating to relax and enjoy the view of the Boston skyline.
We love to travel ourselves, some of the places we have visited include Morocco,France, Italy, Belgium, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Mexico and over 25 of the 50 states! We are an active household between working full time and school and after school activities for our kids. We enjoy being active- bootcamp, swimming, bike riding. And cooking is a passion for my husband and I. Our relax time is sitting in front of the TV and unwinding with our 2 kitties. They are the sweetest cats you will ever meet. Anyone who has met them will fall in love with this lap kitty. Or my son's favorite- time on the Ipad or computer.
We only host FEMALE GUESTS!
Rules of the home are simple- treat it with respect. My favorite saying is "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
We hope to welcome you to Boston. As a multicultural family ourselves (cantonese, arabic, french are the other languages we speak), we understand what will be important to make your stay a positive and memorable one whether you are here to attend the great Boston schools, or for work or just visiting this great city! If you are interested in meals, let us know. We can add dinner for a small fee.

About the Area
A commuters ideal location. Our home is just outside of Boston. 6 train stops to downtown!!!! If you don't like waiting for the bus, you won't have to here!
Just cross two streets from my home and you are at the train. This is a safe neighborhood. High end apartments are being developed in the area. It is the next hot place to be outside of Boston. You can walk to shopping at Target, get groceries at Stop and Shop, misc items at the dollar store and grab a burger at Wendy's about a 20 minute walk away. To enjoy some local fare, there is Dunkin coffee shop next to the train station and a great italian bakery on the way to the train station. Don't forget the sub shop, hair dressers and a 7 day a week convenience store just down the street. For those of you that drive, Boston is a quick 10 minute ride in and when you travel back to Logan airport, that is also about 10 minutes away.
Did I mention the beach is only a 10 minute walk from the home too! The new Encore casino with traffic is about 15 minutes from the house driving. Come visit and be our guest.

Although this was only my first homestay experience, I could tell it would remain as the greatest. Not only was this affordable for my mom and I, Lisa genuinely cared about us. It felt like we were residing in a large house instead of just a spacious comfy bedroom, because we had access to the large living room with Lisa's family, a shower, two bathrooms, a second living room downstairs, the kitchen, and the breakfast bar. On our first day, Lisa told us how we could get to my college, drove us to the nearest convenience store, and more. Lisa's three kids were well-behaved and very polite to us. Lisa's husband actually dropped us off at my college for free despite the traffic because we had a bunch of luggage. Lisa, thank you for treating us like family and talking to me like a sister! <3
(Also, they recently got two new cute cats that I have yet to see in person.)
I highly recommend Lisa for all kind of age people. She was very supportive and helpful. I was offered many meals especially each breakfast was always rich. My word is not enough to express my gratitude. Even her friends Bianca, Mustafa and other friends tried to do all their best. Also I lived within positive neighbors and safe area.
Pretty house and lovely family. The bus is right around the corner for easy access to Boston/Cambridge/ the T. Very fair price.
Had a great time staying at Lisa ‘s . Beautiful place to spend time and she was a lovely host and beautiful kids . Prefect stay with super nice healthy breakfast . Would definitely recommend this place for a peaceful stay .
