Like her household, Ruha is vibrant, warm, and welcoming. The accommodations far exceeded my expectations, and provided me with a memorable, albeit brief, tour of the Boston area. Thanks to Ruha's thoughtfulness, I was made to feel completely at home, and thus able to enjoy a visit which combined family and professional obligations. I hope to stay again soon with the Benjamins. Theirs is the kind of lodging that make Airbnb such a success.
Great pre-Christmas stay at the Benjamin's house in Brookline – traveling with three college-age kids. Beautifully vibrant house in an excellent location with culture and charm. We enjoyed lots of care and attention from Ruha, even though the Benjamins were away during our visit. The Chestnut Hill area of Brookline is located just off Route 9, a very quick and easy drive into downtown Boston.
My family had a fantastic stay in Ruha's lovely suite over Thanksgiving while we were in town to see family. Ruha went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and we had a wonderful time relaxing in her home. Having access to a kitchen was so helpful for us. Thank you!!
I couldn't have asked for more! The suite was quiet, peaceful, comfortable, clean and Ruha was very accommodating. Ruha is a great host and I look forward to staying with her again soon.
Ruha and Shawn are very warm & welcoming hosts! I wasn't there very long on this trip, but will try to stay at their place again. Absolutely charming!
Highly recommended. Ruha and Shawn were a very friendly
couple with a lovely home. Ruha was away during my stay but
always prompt at answering my emails and Shawn went out of his way to make my stay comfortable, even offering to give
me a ride to/from the nearest T station. He also went out of his way
to give me all the privacy I desired (maybe a little too much :).
The rooms were very clean, beautifully decorated
and furnished with lots of nice little extras
and I effectively had 3 rooms to myself! My only complaint is the
single full bathroom which you share with the occupants of the house, as other reviewers have noted. It is a little out of the way,
but a brisk 15 minute walk will get you to the Chestnut hill
station on the T system.
Ruha and her family were exceptionally kind and welcoming. The accommodation was spacious, clean and private. It was wonderful to stay with the Benjamins!
We had a great time in Boston! The house is beautiful and very clean, and Ruha and her family are really nice hosts!
I was in Boston for work. I had a great 3 week stay at the Benjamin's. The house is in a nice neighborhood, 20 minute walk to T-station and 30 minute walk to Boston College. The guest suite is exactly how it is described, very clean and spacious. There is also plenty of room to share upstairs, in the living room. Ruha and her family are very friendly, polite, kind. Awesome family to live with!
It's a beautiful place that fits a large group with a very kind host. Only drawback is that the bathroom is on a different floor, but other than that, it's a GREAT place and people to stay with!
