postive: super clean, very easy to get downtown (once you figured it out yourself), free parking, nice kitchen, plenty of towels, safe neighborhood
negative: room cannot be locked, we stayed there when it was really hot and there is no air conditioning, at least a fan would have been nice as we barely slept due to the enormous heat. A little more information from the host would have been nice, especially as main door of the house was always open as other airbnb guests did not know how to lock the door again.
Gerta wasn't there. We were able to get in even though she wasn't there. Nice location. We had a little difficulty communicating regarding the parking permits.
Gerta's communication in advance of arrival was perfect. The house is beautiful and the room was exactly as advertised. Very clean room, restroom, & kitchen areas. Nice neighborhood, too. We definitely would return and recommend staying here!
Gerta gave detailed arrival instructions and we settled in easily. It's a comfortable house in a pleasant laid-back area with a supermarket nearby as well as several restaurants and a 7-11. The cafe across the park next to the convenience store does great breakfasts, but we also utilised the spacious kitchen. There were other guests but we basically never saw or heard them due to our busy schedule, so there were no problems sharing the bathroom. The room was small but had a walk in wardrobe which was great. The Orient Heights T stop is a short bus ride away and the bus stops in front of the park, despite the lack of marked bus stop. Taxi from Boston Logan was $20. Don't forget to check out Winthrop Beach!
I was not coming in from my flight until nearly 2:00 AM. Gerta made sure I knew how to get in and allowed me to have a place to sleep (that wasn't the airport). Overall, good experience. Thanks Gerta!
The house itself was very nice as are the facilities in the house. The area and locals are lovely too. I had a wonderful time! Definitely worth the money.
On the negative side, it was difficult to get in contact with the host. We arrived late in the evening due to car trouble, so it wasn't surprising that no one was there to let us in, but we hadn't been told any information about how to get into the house or where our room was in the house. In the end we had to rely on one of the other guests to let us know which room was ours. All-in-all, the lack of contact didn't ruin anything and we had a lovely time, but it would've helped to be given more information.
