Échanges avec les voyageurs
I enjoy talking with guests and am open to sharing a meal with you here or at a nearby restaurant. Some guests like to share a dinner with each other, other's like to cook and share food with other guests and I'm sometimes invited and sometimes available . So I'm open.
There are a lot of parking garages nearby but parking is $28 to $32 per 24 hours. There are two parking spaces for four different listings at $25 per night.
The whole PENTHOUSE is available for events your caterer or one I can recommend. But with my permission read on AND
s.v.p. plan in advance. It's a "quiet house" so events like small graduation parties, corporate parties, small meet and greets are examples of good ideas for the space. Bachelor parties, weddings, grooms dinners are not possible. Although it's a good space for the Bride and Groom to stay if you plan to hold your reception at nearby venus. THAT SAID, it's also a Quiet Spot on a quiet street in an historic (1860) neighborhood, ideal for professionals "working-out-of -the-house, for authors, photographers, graduate students who need to study, or for people attending or presenting at conferences.
Check out is at 11am.
The apartment is completely private as is the patio... The laundry room and mail room are both off the common foyer..
Please keep TV, HULU, Blu Ray DVD and music at a reasonable level between 7am and 11pm.
Maximum of two guests. It's not possible to bring in an air mattress. Sleeping in a car in the parking space is also not possible.
-- No smoking, pets, or (loud) parties. 158 is a Quiet building w Quiet Zones.. suitable for professionals, work at home, study, research. There are events at Christmas and occasional meet-and-greets -- scheduled in the afternoon and early evening -- late night entertainment is easy at Sister Sorel, or 647 Tremont just steps away -- some restaurant's in the neighborhood have private rooms you can use if you order some appetizers. Ask Ed or Manny for details.
-- N.B. While it's kid friendly, the apartment is open so best for one or two people, a couple, or a parent with one child. That said, it's a sophisticated apartment, the east entrance is down a spiral stair and the main entrance on the west side is via the patio just off a private way accessible only (for security reasons) from the north.
Airbnb House Rules…
This is a quiet house. Most of the guests are professionals, some working out of the house. No pets and no smoking.
-- Call Ed at (phone number hidden) with requests or concerns. Or call Manny, the building manager at (phone number hidden)
-- High speed WIFI is provided.
-- To accommodate guests with asthma, non-smokers, and recognizing that 158 W. Brookline is insured as a non-smoking building. Guests are not permitted to smoke in the building, on the decks, patio, stairs, or within 25 feet of any entrance of the building.
-- The top four floors are hardwood. In consideration of other tenants in the building guests in the DUPLEX AND PENTHOUSE ARE ASKED TO wear soft-soled shoes, non-skid socks, or non-slip footwear. AND tenants and guests are asked to remember that voices carry and they are asked to be mindful of noise from footfall especially in traffic areas, foyers, laundry room, including hardwood stairs and spiral stairs. There is extensive sound proofing in the building. But footfall can be a problem. There is little sound proofing between the apartments and foyers on floors one and two. So the mailroom/foyers/and spiral stairs are Quiet Zones.
-- On another note… Voices, music, DVD's, CD's can be too loud. Please feel free to knock on the door of other guests if the volume of stereo equipment, LED's, etc is too loud. A well place word will solve a noise problem and keep everyone in the building happy and comfortable.
-- Reasonable quiet is to be expected of all tenants, (i.e. no loud music. Base speaker vibrations travels from floor to floor and even house to house). Headphones are available for your home theater system. Ask Ed or Manny.
-- Avoid loud conversations in the foyers, airlock, on the patio and deck. Sound travels easily from neighbor to neighbor through open windows or on decks. Per city ordinance, outside noise from decks or emanating from the dwelling must be minimized by 10pm. After 10pm thee are many neighborhood places for conversations (i.e. Sister Sorel, 647 Tremont, Francesca's, Aquitane).
-- Long term guests have access to a mail box. Mail and packages are delivered in a secure area for Penthouse, Duplex, and Garden apartments. There is a package drop for small UPS packages in the gate to the mail room.
