Long term stays welcome. Fresh home roasted coffee from around the world awaits you each morning along with a thick slice of my freshly baked artisan bread. This alcove room is comfortable for any length of stay with some stays up to 6 months. Excellent for those relocating, here for studies, or temporary work assignments.


This is a charming, bright, and sunny apartment with views of the Boston skyline and is absolutely a comfortable, professional, and safe place for both men and women. You will awake each morning to the smell of fresh brewed coffee - roasted here by me from exotic green beans. Pair this with some fresh baked artisan bread that I typically have on hand. If you love coffee and fresh home made bread, it doesn't get any better than this. I've also recently begun to make simple cheeses. If you are interested, I might give you a lesson or two on how to roast your own coffee. In addition to fresh baked bread toasted with jam additional breakfast offerings may include cereal, bagels with cream cheese, or, on occassion, a Colombian breakfast of arepa, egg, and cheese. It's delicioso and high protein breakfast, a great way to start the day.

Roslindale Village is a 6 minute walk away and is a lively and charming village square that has many fine restaurants, coffee shops, market, specialty shops, and farmer's market on Saturdays from June through the first weekend of November. In the winter a smaller version sets up inside a local hall.

This room is perfect for anyone considering a long term stay. I now find my typical guest is staying for a month or more. This room is an excellent place for someone coming to Boston for an extended educational program, relocation, or business stay. Though the room is small the adjacent living room, for the most part, is yours to relax, watch tv, work, or browse the internet on your computer. This room was created by knocking down one of the walls in order to open up the front of the house. It is an "alcove" off the living room separated from the rest of the house by blackout curtains. Read the reviews, people enjoy it. There is plenty of storage for whatever you bring. Public transportation into and out of Boston is very convenient. I use public transit and it's faster than driving and parking. If your stay is for one month or more I will arrange to meet you at the airport or train station and return you there when you depart.

The room has a twin size bed that will accomodate one person. There is a living room, dining room, kitchen, back porch, front porch, and bathroom that is shared with the host. There is a full office with a printer, scanner, Macintosh computer, PC, and Linux computers. There is free off-street parking in driveway for one car. There is unrestricted on street parking. We are close to Rt. 128 for those who would use that route to arrive by car. If you enjoy biking around a city feel free to bring bicycles as they can be stored in the basement. Though there is no laundry on the premises but there are several local options.

I have just recently joined the movement away from cable tv and I get 27 channels in HD through an antenna. I do have internet with Netflix streaming via a Roku box and Apple TV that provides many alternative sources of tv entertainment. Wifi is provided throughout the house.

Once you book your room I will send you links to useful local information. If you would like to discuss special transportation needs please feel free to ask. If you are coming from outside the US and want to get a sim card for your phone I can help you with that once you arrive. If you need electric power adapters we can get those as well.

Adgang for gæster

You can feel free to use almost anything here. Feel free to cook in the kitchen and store food in the refrigerator. The local farmer's market runs June through the first weekend of November where you can buy the freshest of local produce and many other products. A smaller version of this market moves indoors for the winter. If you have luggage that is in your way I can store that in the attic.

This is a shared living experience. I live and work here. I spend all of my time in my office thus it affords the guest a sense of privacy to watch TV or some other sort of entertainment. For the most part you will have the entire front of the house to yourself. If you are here for a longer stay we might even share takeout dinner, go out to a restaurant, or go to a movie.

Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke

If you book late on the same day as your arrival you may find that I am not available to you for a convenient arrival time. You should check that. My checkin time is flexible but only if we both agree. I may not be here so please check if you are making a same day booking.

I am about as laid back, flexible, and accommodating as you could expect to find. Read the reviews, that's me. For the most part I have professional guests who are here for work, education, or relocation. This is a shared living experience. I work here as well as live here. It is a quiet home in a quiet neighborhood. I'm here to make your stay as pleasant as possible within the context of the "Airbnb experience".

I get up each day anytime from 6:00am on and typically go to the gym. I will get up to see to it you get on your way. I will coordinate with you so that fresh coffee and bread is available. Any other breakfast items are on you. You can use the refrigerator to keep any food you may want. You can bring in most anything you want and use the kitchen and most everything else in the house.

I felt so lucky that I had chosen Duane's place every day of the two weeks I stayed at his place. From before I came till after I had left Duane was the most helpful host I could ever imagine, making my stay in Boston so much easier and more fun. I also felt at home at his place right away, hanging in his lovely sofa everyday after a long day. Everyday would start with his friendly question if I was ready for coffee and home baked bread and I would sit and look out his window looking at the beatiful view out at Boston from his window enjoying my breakfast greatly. With Duane's interest in how I was doing and all his help we became friends and I will remember my stay at Duane's as a wonderful thing about Boston. Also don't worry about the transportation into downtown, I stayed at Duane's place for almost two weeks and went into downtown everyday and it was really no problem. One last thing.. I always felt secure in the neighborhood, it was a cozy area. I would choose Duane's place if I should ever come back to Boston and I would highly recommend Staying at Duane's to anybody going to Boston. The bottom line is that I would wish that a review like this could express how happy I was about staying at Duane's.

Roslindale has a very quiet surrounding environment -- will have a good sleep if you sleep and wake early. Duane is very nice. He fetched me from and to airport, showed me around the nearby shops, etc., and introduced me some famous places in Boston. We went to some restaurants (sea food, pizza, Chinese, etc.) with the other guest in some weekends. Overall, the stay in Boston has been a very good summer internship experience, and I would highly recommend this place.

Fiquei 3 meses na sua casa, e Duane foi o melhor host q já vi. Ele é super disponível pra ajudar e orientar a chegada a cidade, me levou até ao supermercado e para comprar o chip do celular. No início explicou todos os caminhos e opções pra chegar em casa, e sempre q pode ajudou no transporte. A casa eh um lar, de verdade. Fomos 2 hóspedes no início e no final, e estive sozinha no mês do meio. e Duane nos fez sentir uma verdadeira família. Recomendo 100%. E ainda, no início da primavera, Duane ofereceu-me uma bicicleta, facilitando e deixando mais gostoso o transporte nessa cidade maravilhosa. A casa eh agradável e aconchegante, apesar de os quartos não terem 100% privacidade: um deles eh separado por uma cortina e outro eh caminho para o escritório do Duane-mas ele nunca entra se tiver um hóspede com portas fechadas. Eh extremamente respeitoso, do espaço e do silêncio. Quando voltar, quero ficar "em casa" nessa casa novamente!

Very comfortable and enjoyable one-night stay -- my first time at Duane's place. Duane was a thoughtful, considerate, and kind host. The alcove room, the apartment, and the whole set-up are just as described. I go to Boston often and would be very happy to stay at Duane's again.

This was my first Airbnb experience and I loved it! Duane is a true gentleman! He offered me so much help like a very kind brother! He is so clean, polite and generous in any means! I can't thank him enough for his kind and warm hospitality!!! The room was sooo clean as well as the kitchen and bathroom! I will definitely come back again and recommend his place to everyone especially for the long term stay!

Duane was extremely nice and very helpful to me and the other guest staying at our apartment. Upon arrival he had a notebook filled with information to help get one orientated to the area, including public transit info and local restaurants around the house within walking distance. He always made sure I was comfortable, but also gave me my space and privacy. As stated, Duane offered coffee and and toast every morning with a smile on his face which was greatly appreciated. Overall, I was treated both as a guest, and an autonomous roommate in a way, and I enjoyed that standard of living. Would highly recommend Duane and would stay with him again if I am in the area.

I am a self-employed professional. I work as a technology consultant out of my home office. I am very knowledgeable about Boston, it's history, and most importantly, how to get around in Boston. I was once a Boston cab driver. I enjoy a lot of outdoor activities including surfing…
