Peter's house is lovely, eclectic and warm! It was a pleasure to stay in such a well-tended historic home. We felt as though we were staying with an old friend, in a clean room filled with wonderful books and fun antiques. Peter was flexible and friendly and we're only sad we didn't get to spend more time in the house!

Peter was a great host! We didn't have much time to prepare ahead of time, but we ended up using his tips for restaurants, museums and places to visit around time. Definitely didn't disappoint! Can't wait to go back!

Peter's house is located at a quiet but convenient neighborhood. I can go to Harvard and MIT by walk and there's a large supermarket nearby-Target. Peter is a very nice and easygoing host. His information about arrival is quite clear and he even prepared CharlieCard and several coins for us. Also, I must thank Peter for letting us store our luggage after checking out.

Peter User ProfilePeter is a superhost.

I have lived in the Boston area for the past forty years. My daughter is recently off to college so I'm adjusting to life as a new empty-nester. I manage to keep busy with my work as a software engineer at an early-stage IOT startup in Cambridge. I love sailing in New England waters. I enjoy reading, the movies and the occasional theater outing. I've been studying the piano for the past couple years. Maintaining an old and beautiful home takes a lot of time and effort as well. Good conversation with old friends and new is always a pleasure. I don't travel much myself, so I rely on you to tell me about fantastic, faraway places.
