So everything was great. Easy way to the city and no problems at all.
Would do it again.
Susan was very helpful and welcoming and took the time to get me settled in. She gave great tips and noticed I needed coffee badly after a long day of work. The b&b is very near to the subway which takes you right into the center in just 15 minutes. The house is clean and comfortable.
This was by far one of the most comfortable and well-appointed airbnb spots that I have ever stayed in. Susan is an extremely attentive host. Everything was very clean and there was even a bathrobe in the bedroom.
As some of the other commenters have noted, there do seem to be a lot of house rules. I was in town on business and might have given up some of the higher end amenities in favor of a more relaxed atmosphere.
That minor thing aside, I would say that this is a great place if you are in town on vacation and are looking for something that approximates a traditional bed & breakfast. Susan seems to know a ton about Boston and seems very passionate about offering people a wonderful experience.
With great pleasure, we think back to our visit to the Airbnb from Susan. The kindness and hospitality we get was for us a very positive experience. Our room was more than fine, slept with 3 people and the shower facilities were very clean and with care. The location was just outside the center, the metro was perfectly located 300 meters away and took us directly to the center. The breakfast was very responsible with fresh fruit and delicious banana cake. In short, it is definitely a must and worth for a repeating stay in Boston, Susan ones again many thanks.
Susan is a wonderful host. She welcomed us into her home and explained to us how the bed and breakfast worked; keys, shared bathroom, common spaces, etc. The room was clean and comfortable. She provided a lovely breakfast in the morning and has a sweet and gracious personality. Bonus: Her dog is adorable!! We only stayed two nights and traveled around by car. Street parking was not a problem at all. Thank you, Susan!
Susan is a great host! Very welcoming. We didn't spend much time at the house as we were only in town a short time and had lots to do there. Her place is a charming, comfortable old new england house in a quiet neighbohood a very short walk away from the red line stop. Downtown and Cambridge are a short ride away. Overall a great deal in a nice area very convenient to all that Boston has to offer.
