Hi, I'm Joe. I have several rental properties which I rent out thru Guestnest. I enjoy running (shorter distances - no marathon training here), basketball, friends and family. I spend my time traveling between Boston and Tampa, enjoying each for their differences.

Joe is mostly ok. Jun 08, 2015

Very accommodating to all my guest needs, great host! May 31, 2015

Beacon Hill studio was a great stay. Was in the heart of Beacon Hill and conveniently located to walk around the city or take public transportation. The Studio was clean, modern, and confortable. Would stay here again or refer this place to a friend. May 19, 2015

Joe was definitely one of the best hosts I have stayed with. The room and house were all just a wonderful experience. Will definitely miss the people I met / stayed with during my stay. Will recommend this room to all. Apr 02, 2015

It is different reviewing Joe as a host. He doesn't live on site. I met him once and he seemed very pleasant. He communicates very, very quickly via email and was quick to answer any questions I had. The house was tidy and was exactly as described. My overall experience was very positive and I would gladly rent from Joe again. Mar 14, 2015

Joe was a wonderful guest who was very thoughtful and considerate during his stay. It would be a pleasure to host him again. Feb 27, 2015

Joe is a nice and friendly guy and really tries to help if you need anything. Feb 24, 2015

Joe is a nice and easy guy to rent from. There was no hassle and he gives tenants their privacy. The other people I roomed with were also respectful and courteous. The home was maintained on a usual basis depending on if there were any problems to be fixed. I enjoyed my stay and I would rent from him again! Feb 19, 2015

I had a very pleasent stay. Joe is extremely quick in responsing to any questions or concerns. Feb 04, 2015

Joseph was a great host and his place in Beacon Hill is very convenient for getting to the rest of the city while still having many great places nearby. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Jan 24, 2015

Joseph was a great host. He was friendly and easy to deal with. And the Beacon Hill location was great. It was very clean and up to date with a nice bathroom/shower and a nice little kitchen so you can cook instead of eating out if you wish. Although it's a short walk from many good restaurants and the red line T station so you can get anywhere quickly. Jan 24, 2015

Great stay, small room. Nice location. :) Jan 17, 2015

It was a very interesting experience of being a host on Guestnest. Joseph is a nice guest and we had a great talk during his stay. I would definitely be pleased to host Joseph again. Recommended guest as well as the website. Jan 09, 2015

Absolutely amazing location. The studio was very clean and cozy. Joe was extremely quick to answer any questions we had. I would recommend this "nest" to anyone that wants to feel safe and be centrally located to a ton of sight seeing within walking distance. Dec 09, 2014

I wanted to give a thumbs up and it is showing a thumbs down. how do i fix that? Dec 09, 2014

Joseph was a wonderful host, we truly enjoyed our time in his home and would love to stay again in the future. The bed was comfortable and the location couldn't be better. It exceeded our expectations by miles!! Oct 24, 2014

Cozy was right! This charming little studio was comfortable and perfect for two people staying for a few nights. In fact, I think we'd be happy to stay for a week or more! Joe was quick to respond to all my questions and didn't even laugh when I told him I had no idea how to work a radiator as I'm a Southern California kid. The location was prime for walking and very safe. I cannot wait to come back to Boston and will absolutely book another stay here. Oct 22, 2014

Joe was the best! Very fast to accomodate me last minute and helpful throughout my entire stay. Highly recommended Oct 09, 2014

Joe was a great host. As a first time guestnester he answered all my questions and even offered some helpful advice about the area and things to do. We loved our stay it was the perfect little place in the heart of Boston. Oct 07, 2014

Joe is an amazing host and is very prompt with any questions I had. This little room was perfect for what I needed. The other guest were very clean and courteous. I highly recommend to use Joe on Guestnest. Oct 04, 2014

Great experience with Joe's nest!!! Great location, easy access to the T making it super convenient to get around Boston. Joe was very accommodating with check in for our morning flight and check out was a breeze!! Great communication from the first inquiry I made. If you looking for a great, clean and cozy place to stay in Boston for a VERY reasonable price this nest is it!! Will visit again....Thank you Joe!!! :) Sep 29, 2014

Joe was so helpful and responsive to my questions- a great host. The Apartment is small, but cozy. Great for one person, or 2 if it's a short amount of time. I would def come back! Aug 28, 2014

Great accommodation!!! Joe is definitely one of the most respectable and understanding hosts I have had the pleasure of meeting. I moved to Tampa on short notice and it was a breeze. I contacted Joe and the house was basically ready the next day. Room and utilities match the listing 100%. GuestNest was the easiest and convenient mode to set the accommodation up as I didn't have to be present in person to sign a lease. Definitely recommend him as a host! Aug 19, 2014

Joe was awesome to work with! The residence was clean and exactly how it was described through Guestnest. I recommend Guestnest and Joe to everyone. Aug 17, 2014

As a new-comer to Guest Nest, I would say Joe does his very best to accommodate his guests to the best of his ability. As a courteous, responsive and hard-working host, he did visit to trim the exterior and clean the interior while handling any questions in a timely manner. I would rate it as a 3-star hotel. As for the "Nest" itself, the Master Bedroom "A" was the perfect amount of space, but I did run into a couple minor issues. Aug 16, 2014

Joe was fantastic. My trip was literally last minute and Joe did everything he could to accommodate. His place was cozy and is the perfect pied-a-terre. There not much to it and you have to bring your own entertainment but if youre looking for a place to rest your head in a perfect Boston location thats immaculate with a responsive host then this is the place. Aug 03, 2014

Joe was easy to work with, we talked on the phone a few times and he followed up with me on any issues I had. Jul 17, 2014

Joseph was great! He was prompt and courteous with his communication and made us feel comfortable. The studio is in a wonderful safe location! The T is less than a 3 minute walk and restaurants are even closer. Whole Foods is also within walking distance. The apartment itself is small but cozy with an open floor plan. Futon is surprisingly comfortable for 2 middle-aged people--no back aches. :) Great place for those who are out and about exploring. Would recommend and stay again! Jul 08, 2014

Joe was a great host! He is very easygoing and corteous. He was also very responsive and kept the property in very good shape! Two thumbs up! Jun 23, 2014

Everything as advertised and more! Great location, roommates, and landlord! Jun 17, 2014

delivered as advertised! Jun 12, 2014

Great stay! Joseph was prompt and very helpful and the place was exactly as expected. Great location, close to whole foods, CVS, great restaurants, the commons, everything! Will definitely stay again on our next visit to Boston! May 29, 2014

Joe is a very thoughtful landlord, I appreciate his work to keep the place nice and clean. May 14, 2014

He was very helpful and it was a very nice place. It was a perfect location for what I needed, and if and when I ever return to Boston, I have no doubt in my mind that I would stay here again. Apr 25, 2014

Joe was a great guest as usual. Nothing new on that front. Jan 08, 2014

Joe is a gratious landlord as far as getting things fixed when needed. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a room. Jan 04, 2014

Very much someone I'd do business with again. Dec 11, 2013

Joseph was clean, courteous, and respectful of my place and my pets. He's got an open invitation to come back anytime. Aug 09, 2013
