Hermina purchased this Townhome in 2000
Why Hermina chose Dorchester
4 min to walk to T-red line (Field's Corner stop), affordable, clean, comfortable. Eating and sopping places just around corner, ocean not far, Parking on th street is unlimited, free. T-red line takes you direct to South Station, Downtown, MGH, MIT, Harvard square. From the airport is free if you take Silver line and change to T-red line in South Station to Fields corner. It is vibrant, looks like part of New York, not the wealthy, historical, area, safe, convenient and nice host who tries to make you happy
What makes this Townhome unique
The Neighborhood: Dorchester is a historic neighborhood of over 6 square miles in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. The town was founded by Puritans who emigrated from Dorchester, England in 1630. The neighborhood is a mixed neighborhood, safe, convenient. The community has shown many improvements over the past 15 years that I’ve lived here. There’s a Police station right behind my property, and Buddhist center in front. Everything you need is just around the corner: Public library, restaurants and shopping plaza, T-mobile store. Nearby: The ocean and Castle Island are a 5 min drive away. UMASS, JFK library and museums are a 5 min drive away, or free shuttle buses are accessible from the JFK T-stop. Public transportation: A 4 min walk to the Red line subway at Field’s Corner stop. The Red line is the most very convenient line in the Boston subway system, which connects Field’s Corner to the Airport, South Station, Downtown Crossing, MGH hospital, MIT, and Harvard sq. Free and easy access to my home from the Airport by public transportation. The House: My home is a duplex with two houses attached to each other on the same grounds. There’s the main Victorian house, built in 1848, and a Townhouse attached to it at the back that was built in the early 1900’s. The Townhouse: Sunny, beautiful, clean, big, comfortable place for gatherings of friends and families. There is everything to feel at home:

Thank you, Hermina, for being so communicative and helpful through the whole process. Your house was really lovely, clean, great location and we can't wait to come back to Boston on our next trip from France!
Not what we expected
This property is not in a good area. Had we known, we would not have stayed here. Property owner was easy to work with and helpful, but we felt the listing was misleading.
This unit worked very well for our group of four adults and two teens. Some previous reviews have questioned the neighborhood, but we didn't have any problems. Dorchester is a working neighborhood and has been for decades. It is diverse, but we never felt that it wasn't safe. There is very little graffiti on anything and there are national chain businesses in the neighborhood that aren't in bad areas. The parking appears to be a little limited when we first arrived, but we never had a problem.
The unit itself was very nice and spacious. There could have been more information about how things work in the house, but Hermina was always responsive and hopefully she will add that information. Nothing crazy, but there are a couple of notes about where the grocery store is (we would suggest the Star Market by JFK T stop if you have a car), but nothing about where to take the garbage out and other basic things. We figured everything out, but it would have been more smooth if a binder was left.
The location was very easy walk to the T stop and overall I think we would stay here again.
The property was good. We had an issue with the air conditioning unit in the kitchen. It was fixed the next day. Parking was hard to find.
Thank you for being very considerate and kind guests. Hope to see you in the future
The house itself was exactly what we wanted. Very clean and well stocked. It’s located directly behind the police department. The area surrounding the house however isn’t the best. Seemed to be quite a bit of violence in the neighborhood. I wouldn’t suggest being out after dark. We took an Uber into Boston each day...costing around $30 a trip. That seemed quite reasonable. Traffic is fierce so having someone familiar with the area driving is a huge plus! Hermina was very nice to chat with. We didn’t get the chance to meet her. The other folks staying at the house were very nice as well. If the location was better we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you, it was nice to host you as a guest. I'm happy it met your needs
Great stay for our family
Hermina was a great host, very responsive throughout the process. The house is within easy walking distance to the red line T stop, which was a very important consideration for us. We had a wonderful stay!
