Melrose is a charming town just north of Boston with lots of park land and well-maintained Victorian homes. We are a 10 minute walk to downtown, which boasts a variety of great restaurants. 10 minutes the other way brings you to a sparkling lake and the woods. It is a short bus ride to the Oak Grove subway stop, and from there, 20 minutes to downtown Boston. Our 2-bedroom apartment is tastefully renovated. Landscaped backyard, breezy patio, fish pond, parking for your car (one space).
The first floor apartment is all yours - you will not have to share the space with anyone else. It has a fully equipped modern kitchen, colorful full bath, comfy living room, plants and handmade rugs. There is a foosball table, games shelf, and a bin of big-sized Legos. We use our backyard frequently during the warm months; you are welcome to share this space with us and use the grill. In addition to the patio, your apartment has a private back porch.
A lock box containing the keys is mounted next to the front door. The combination will be set to the last 4 digits of your phone number (the one you use for your Airbnb account). Pull down the black lever to get the keys inside. Please let us know when you would like to check in so that we can be sure to have the place cleaned and ready for you!
PARKING: By city ordinance, on street parking is prohibited between 2-6 a.m. We can offer you one space in our driveway, and we will need to coordinate with you, as we leave very early in the morning for work.

We are proud to have hosted guests from all over the world, and we will continue to extend a warm welcome to everyone. We live upstairs and can offer you suggestions for things to do, if you like. In the past we have enjoyed chatting with our guests and hearing about their day trips, but mostly we'll stay out of your hair :) Please let us know if you need anything!
The main bedroom has a queen-sized pillow top mattress. The second bedroom has a full-sized futon bed and a twin-sized folding bed (more than a cot, less than a permanent bed). We have a dog (a friendly terrier mix mutt), but he does not spend time in the Airbnb apartment.
No smoking, no pets, no parties. As a former cabinetmaker, I renovated this apartment personally over four years. I hope you will enjoy it, but treat it with respect, love, and care! Our driveway can only accommodate one extra car. Please read the section on Melrose parking restrictions carefully.
I teach middle school Spanish and play the banjo; my husband is a gardener and plays bass. We have two almost grown children and a cute beagle mutt named Sally. As a former cabinetmaker, I renovated our Airbnb apartment personally over the course of 4 years. We are proud to say that our guests have told us it is one of the most beautiful spaces they've ever stayed in!
