Come stay with me in Boston's Roslindale neighborhood. It is a very safe and suburban part of the city, where most of the houses have driveways and backyards. Your room is fully furnished with an 8 x 10 wool rug, and a nice bureau, a wood-frame, full-size bed, cable TV, WI-FI, a desk to work at, and a new chair.

I am an importer of Mexican Folk Art, and run an online store out of the apartment. You will see some wonderful examples of handmade wood, tin and pottery figures on display here.

This is nicely located in Roslindale within easy reach of the commuter rail station. A very quiet and comfortable place to stay, one of my regular places to stay in Boston on my commute.

I had a great time staying here. Phil is very thoughtful and kind host. He will be very friendly if you want to talk or ask some info. Or If you want to stay privately, you will never be disturbed. The house has a spacy backyard garden. Calm and safe neighbor near around.
