Sam and I really enjoyed our stay at Gerta and Johns. The house is beautiful with its old charm and the location isn't bad. We were able to park our car for free and take an easy subway ride into town. Considering the pricey hotels in and around Boston, this is a really good deal and you're just steps away from the beach! Thanks again!
Gerta was great, i was late arriving at 1145 pm, but she stayed up to show me where to park and show my room, very sincere of her. For an overnight, this is a great option, you wont regret it, bathroom is shared by 2 other room. Awesome, thanks Gerta.
We enjoyed our stay at Gerta's house very much, and we feel like at home. She and her family are very friendly and nice, and very helpful too. The house is beautiful and lovely. The neighborhood is very safe and quite. Gerta's house will be our first choice in future.
It was really happy to stay in Gerta Mataj
Very Cozy room and very nice bathroom!!
and also we can use the kitchen whenever we want~!
Thank you for kindness ~!!
We made lots of happy memory in boston because of you~!
The home is located FAR outside the city. The bus schedule in Winthrop is irregular, but in cold weather is a better option than the 1.3 mile walk to Beachmont station or the 2 mile walk to Orient Heights. If you have your own car on your trip then the bad location is something you can deal with. Gerta was polite upon arrival and gave us the house tour and told us to use the kitchen and livingroom freely. We found out that sadly the gorgeous grand piano in the pictures is no longer a working instrument which was a huge disappointment to us because it was one of the main reasons we chose the house. The room had dust bunnies and cobwebs and was just generally dirty, and, although I asked for a vacuum to clean it myself, I never got one the week I was there.
Great stay! Both Gerta and her husband John both are very nice and helpful. The public transport connection into Boston (bus, then subway) while not superb, are good enough to work with. The room, while not quite as shiny as in the picture, has everything needed for a comfortable stay. And for anyone looking to go for long beach walks on sunny days, the location is amazing! In summary, it's a great place to stay for a relaxed getaway.
I stayed one week at Gerta's house. It is a very nice house in a beautiful neighborhood. You can walk to the beach in a few minutes. The area is very safe! You can eat in different cafés or diners.
It's very easy to come to Boston. You can catch the bus, short walk from Gerta's house (5 minutes), and drive to the next T-Station. It's very easy and it only take about 15 minutes. The airport is only one T-Station.
I didn't see Gerta very often but she was very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again if I will visit Boston again.....
Gerta's place is nice and clean. The house is an amazing old victorian with lots of gorgeous details. Gerta was so helpful and kind. Her place is an easy ride into downtown boston blocs from the water. I highly recommend staying here.
This was the perfect place to stay on the last night of our trip having an early flight out of Boston the next morning. Gerta was very helpful and recommended our favorite restaurant of our entire trip. Her home is beautiful.
It was a little difficult to maneuver the many stairs with heavy luggage.
Good place to stay out of Central Boston--beach walks & the local cafe does a killer seafood salad
