Our classic New England colonial is set in the tree filled "Columbines" neighborhood of Milton, MA, the first suburb town south of Boston, only 8 miles south of downtown. Comfortably sleeps a family of 4-6 with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths.
This is a full featured suburban home. If you are looking to visit family/friends in Milton and want a house of your own for a week or the weekend, look no further! The back yard has a patio with table and umbrella, a playset for the kids, and hot tub that guests are welcome to responsibly use. If you are travelling with little ones, I also have a Pack'n'Play, a clip-on "high" chair, and other similar baby/kid amenities.
There is one king bed in the master bedroom, a full (double) in one bedroom and a twin in the third bedroom (with an additional floor mattress under the bed). There are two sofas (one in the living room and one larger one in the finished basement) large enough to sleep on but they are NOT pull-out sleeper sofa beds.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests have access to the entire house. There are lots of kids' toys that families are welcome to respectfully use.
Atención a los huéspedes
Minimal interaction other than to welcome guests and give a tour, when practical with my travel schedule. Otherwise details will be shared by email and in a "house document."

I expect all interested guests to send me an email introducing themselves, their travel plans, and the other members of the travelling group. I live in this house with my children and only rent when the kids are at their mom's and I am travelling. The house is well lived in. You can expect a clean house and clean sheets and towels, but do not expect it to look like a hotel! My kids toys and books, etc are organized and tidy but I do not transform their rooms or my room or any part of the house into full blown BnB style guest rooms. Bottom line-you are a guest in my house, not a guest in a hotel! The house is in a close knit family neighborhood. I know all my neighbors and I highly respect their privacy and expectation of a quiet low key family neighborhood. I therefore vet all guests carefully! The photos of the house do this description justice, I think, as do my reviews. I like to be transparent about what you are getting-a nice lived-in family house in the 'burbs!
This is my and my children's home. We expect the house to be cared for as you would your own home. Our target guest is a another family looking to utilize a home for their visit. No more than 6 guests without prior approval and $25/additional guest/night. Well trained pets considered with security deposit. Absolutely no smoking or drug use. This is a quiet family neighborhood and therefore loud or raucous behavior is not tolerated (by me or the neighbors). Out of the respect for the neighbors guests should not be using the backyard area past 10pm.
I am a teacher at a nearby school. My two kids and I live in the house but the kids are away half the time with their mom and we typically travel for several weeks in the summer hence the availability of the house at various times. We enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities (climbing, hiking, biking, boating, skiing).
I have lived in Australia, New Zealand, and Switzerland. My most recent international travel was to Greenland to participate in a research project. I have also recent been to Guadalupe and Panama, both using AirBnB!
I speak some French (poorly now though I was good after a month living with a French family years ago ).
