Susan was a wonderful and warm host! We were not able to see her during our stay due to her busy personal schedule and our busy vacation but our encounters were just great! She was very accommodating.
Susan was the perfect host! The listing was exactly as described - comfortable and seconds from T train into downtown Boston. We had a wonderful stay in your home Susan, thanks again for everything, including your helpful tips for things to do, and not forgetting breakfast every morning!
Though a few days have passed, I still remember Susan's smile, her hospitality, the strawberry covered with chocolate she has made specially for our family and her thoughtfulness of either moving the electric fan away in case we may knock on it or leaving the lovely Zoe with us when we mentioned we liked her but couldn't see her when we came back. There is a lot to say.... The room is very clean, the house is only 3 minutes' walk to the subway, and Susan is so helpful. She is really a very very great host. Next time we will surely stay at her house. I
Susan was a wonderful host. Friendly, helpful and an exquisite attention to detail. Susan's home was comfortable, clean and very convenient to the red line. I felt very welcome and would highly recommend her home.
Susan was an excellent host; my fiancé and I enjoyed our stay and felt welcome in her home. She greeted us when we arrived and showed us around her home. Initially I was skeptical about booking in a B-N-B with a shared restroom, however this was never an issue during our stay. I never had to wait to utilize the restroom and it was extremely clean. Her entire home is spotless and my room had ample space. Susan is very knowledgeable about the area and will make great suggestions for your visit. Communication with Susan was excellent, and she was only a text away if you had any questions while exploring Boston. The neighborhood is safe and the red-line train is a couple of blocks (very short walk) away. The proximity to the train was very convenient. Her breakfast was a perfect way to start my day with an assortment of fresh fruits, yogurt, homemade granola and breads, which were delicious. Susan even surprised us with chocolate covered strawberries when we arrived on one of the nights! Just one note, if you tend to be a light sleeper I would recommend staying in the rooms further from the front of the home in order to avoid any street noise. Overall we had a great stay.
Susan was a great host.
The neighborhood was very safe and short distance to public transportation.
The house super cozy.
Susan made us breakfast.
Definitely a great place.
Thank you Susan!!
