Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Kathe was a great host! She introduced us around the place, then let us have our space. It's nice to have a separate entrance and keys when staying in a place. And sharing a bathroom/kitchen worked out just great!

    October 2013
  • It was second time my husband living. Kathe was a welcoming and friendly as usual. Highly recommended !

    September 2013
  • Kathe is a very friendly and helpful host. It is very easy to get into the city center with line 16 and the red line and it takes about half an hour.
    The room is very cozy and clean but the bed is quite noisy and not too comfortable for very tall people.

    September 2013
  • Kathe was a welcoming and friendly host. Her house is a quick walk to public transport into Boston Central. The room was spacious and Kathe provides wifi,towels, access to a kitchen and refrigerator and TV room.

    We throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this accommodation to anyone traveling to Boston.

    September 2013
  • Kathe was a great host, the house is in a good location, we felt right at home. Taking the bus (16 or 17) to get to the T was no problem, and it was great to see a side of Boston I'm sure many visitors miss.

  • My boyfriend and I had a nice stay at Kathe's home. I have arrived a little earlier and her mom received me with a very refreshing lemonade, tea and a nice chat. The house is big and is shared with Kathe, her mom, her sister and possibly with other AirBnB guests. The room we stayed in is on the third floor we shared a bathroom and a small kitchen only with Kathe. She was very kind and attentive and didn't seem upset when we mixed up some dates.
    The only thing you must pay attention when you stay there is that you have to organize your schedule based on the bus times. It doesn't come that often.
    Overall it was a very nice stay and we would recommend it!

    June 2013
  • Kathe was very nice and very accommodating. I got in late at night near midnight and she stayed up to welcome me, then when I left a few days later in the early morning she graciously gave me a ride to the airport! Public transit in the area shuts down around midnight so make sure you're aware of that, but the bus/train system was easy to navigate. Thanks for having me, Kathe!

    March 2013
  • It was a wonderful hospitality. I felt very welcome and already a little bit like home.

    October 2012
  • We loved Kathe's place. She and her Mum gave us a warm welcome, provided us with tips for sightseeing an guidebooks and the bed was amazing! We didn't have the problem to wait long for a bus (10-15 Minutes was the longest) and within half an hour you are at the centre of Boston (if you get the right ticket - it's a bit tricky, i would recommend a day ticket). We ate out on our short trip, so we didn't use the kitchen, but the bathroom was quite as in our own home and the bed was even better! So if you go to Boston, i would totally recommend Kathe's, Thanks!

    October 2012
  • We enjoyed our stay at Kathe's place. It was exactly what is specified in her add. She was vr nice and explained us everything about the room and which stairs to tk, the area, etc. She even provided us with clean towels and drinking water. The bed was comfy - you would get a good night's sleep for sure, bt yeah, it made a little noise. The internet conn is was also pretty fast. Actually one thing i liked about her room was that it smelt really nice! :) We used to enter the room dog tiered and that welcoming lavender smell would cheer me up! :)

    The place is pretty close to the 'T', so commuting was not a problem. Its just that, be careful while returning late as there is only 1 bus/hr from Andrew station to this place (bus no. 16) after rush hours. So time it well while returning. We had to wait for an hour one day for 16. Other than that, everything was fine.
    If you keep your expectations in tune with what you are paying, then you wont be disappointed with this place. If needed, i would love to stay here again! :)

I work HARD and I enjoy life just as hard. I enjoy traveling and have been to Canada, Spain, Gibraltar, Grenada, Puerto Rico, St. Marteen, Mexico and many parts of the USA. Places that I would like to visit someday are Australia, Germany, Ireland, London, China, and Japan just to name a few. Ultimately I would love to visit every part of the globe. I joined airbnb to meet interesting people, so far I'm very impressed...Have hosted guests from all over the world since 2011...I look forward to meeting many more people from around the world.. I would love to learn a second language, so any help is appreciated :-) I look forward to continue hosting and meeting many more people.
