Beautiful Victorian Home near Boston, Mountains & Beaches

Brookline, Massachusetts (just 10 minutes to Boston & 4 hours to NYC)

CURRENTLY SEEKING EXCHANGE in ITALY, GREECE, SPAIN or PORTUGAL for SUMMER 2019.

We are also open for shorter or non-simultaneous exchanges in USA or Canada especially for winter, February and April Vacations.

We live in a beautiful, warm, elegantly yet comfortably decorated home (downstairs of two family home) with two plus bedrooms (one with queen bed and the other with a full-size bed).  An additional "daybed" can sleep two others in the large living room with Mexican style half bath attached. You will also find a dining area, eat-in kitchen, full bathroom with tub and shower. There is a study with WiFi and laundry facilities. Tree-lined street with cafés, restaurants and public transportation all within walking distance (2-3 minutes walking)! Parking too.

The house is located in Brookline, Massachusetts.  You can step outside to a quiet tree-lined street but we are just a 10 minute train ride to the center of Boston.  Very close by are  restaurants and public transportation (2 minute walk).  You can enjoy a drink or dinner on our porch surrounded by trees.

Walk down the quiet street to the bustling safe neighborhood of Brookline.  In one direction you can walk to a "reservoir" or pond or take the "T" into Boston to explore the Boston Commons or Fanueil Hall or the North End (Italian neighborhood).  It is just a short ride to the Back Bay neighborhood.  You can also sail or kayak or take a boat ride on the Charles River.  Just across the river are Harvard University and MIT.

Please see the following for an idea about what you might do and see in Boston:

Our house has beautiful old woodwork with a modern kitchen, bathroom with shower/tub.  The house has 4 fireplaces.  Everything is close to all that Boston has to offer--restaurants, theater, public gardens.  The ocean is also less than 45 minutes away as are the mountains. New York City is a 1 hour flight away or 4 hour drive/train ride.  Enjoy the comfort of a home so close to the city

We are five...two adults and three children and have traveled together and through Intervac extensively, having lived abroad and done exchanges in Barcelona, Paris and most recently, Mexico. Adam is a professor at a business college and Jillian is a special education teacher.  Our three children, ages 16, 17, 18 are respectful travelers and  may travel with us. We have also travelled to Costa Rica twice without Intervac and enjoy getting to know others and the opportunity this provides.   Thank you for looking!
