Summer Housing


Our house is located at 99 Bay State Road in the heart of Kenmore. The house itself is a beautiful six-story brownstone mansion that includes a fully-equipped kitchen and several large common areas. We are conveniently located near public transportation, including the Kenmore Square Green Line Stop (B,C, and D Line Trains), so getting in and around the city is easy. Fenway park is a 5 minute walk away, so we recommend you take in a Red Sox game or two while you're here.

  • High Speed Wifi
  • Kitchen Facilities
  • Billiard Table

For the summer of 2024, we have singles, doubles, triples, and quads available for rent from May 25th to August 17th. Once you are approved for housing a spot will be reserved for you. You will have five (5) business days to return a signed lease agreement and a security deposit of $300. If you fail to submit a contract and/or deposit in this timeframe, your spot will be released. Full payment of the summer rent is due on or prior to May 23rd. If you prefer to pay your rent in two installments (1/2 on or before May 23rd and 1/2 on July 1st), a fee of $200 will be charged.

  • I've filled out my form. When can I expect to hear back from you?
    We receive a lot of inquires and unfortunately cannot respond to all of them. If you do not qualify for house, you likely will not be reached. If you do qualify, you should hear from us with a week. Please check your spam folder as some emails from our address has ended up there.

  • Are you close to public transportation?
    We are a short walk to Kenmore Station on the MBTA green line and about an 8min walk to the Lansdowne Commuter Rail stop on the Worcester/Framingham Line

  • Is there a gym in the building?
    No, we recommend GymIt at 920 Commonwealth Ave. It's about a 20min walk or a short T ride. The monthly costs are very reasonable for students.

  • Do have any responsibilities while living in the house?
    Yes, we expect that all tenants will maintain a clean leaving environment. Additionally to keep our cost downs and provide fair rents, each resident will be assigned a weekly chore (eg. taking out the trash, cleaning the shared bathroom, etc). This will help maintain an enjoyable living experience for the summer. Additionally, there will be a house cleaner service.

  • Can I use the kitchen?
    Absolutely, we have a commercial kitchen and you're welcome to use it for your food preparation. We only ask that you clean up after yourself out of respect for the other residents.
