I booked this house for clients coming into town for 2 weeks. While a little hard to initially find, our clients were thrilled to pieces with Emmanuel's home and found it very easy to access public transportation and otherwise get around.
Emmanuel responded to any questions immediately, and was in frequent contact with me throughout their stay. I would absolutely look to rent this home again in the future.
The host made us welcome. The house looked as it was on the website and was comfortable but was smaller than what it looked like on the website. The house is located at the corner of a one way street so if you do not take the right turning it was difficult to get back to the house. My navigation always invariably took us the wrong way.
Thank you very much for your feedback, I send directions ahead of time because navigation systems often do not give the correct directions. I am also available by phone to help as well.
I understand this was your first Airbnb experience. Airbnb is different than hotels, you have your own kitchen, your bed is not made every day and if you need anything or have any questions, you can call or send a message to the owner.
Your privacy and comfort so you can enjoy your stay.
Stayed at Emmanuel's 3 Bed 2 Bath home the weekend of Mar 27th to Mar 29th. Took my son, and a few guests to a Bruins, Rangers game on the Saturday of our stay. The location to the city is Ideal. Quick drive to say the least. His home was perfect. More Blankets, Sheets, towels then we ever needed. The Apt. was Clean, and most importantly, cozy. Makes you forget why one would ever stay at a Hotel. Emmanuel was quick to my texts (trouble with the lockbox..my fault) would stay there again in a (email hidden)ank you Emmanuel for sharing your place.
I booked my work crew there for a week. We wanted to stay for the remaining three weeks we were working up in Boston. Unfortunately it was not available. We would go back anytime. My guys were so impressed they said he was awesome! They would recommend to anyone. The location was perfect for getting into downtown Boston and the nearby businesses were cool and there were great places in walking distance to eat!
This was the cleanest and most comfortable airbnb I've stayed at yet. It was nice and warm in the dead of winter, and Emmanuel followed through on his promise of off-site parking, even when that meant shoveling out 100 inches of snow in the driveway before we arrived. I think he may have even come and put fresh salt on the steps early one morning to make sure we didn't slip in these icy conditions. Beds were soft and comfortable, bathrooms were super clean, kitchen was well stocked, and the couch was very comfortable for lounging. Thanks for a great stay!
There were no surprises with the house. It's an older home, but is clean, comfortable and met our needs perfectly. The off street parking was great because there was so much snow on the ground! Emmanuel was quick to reply to messages, and even though he lives in the basement we only saw him when we were digging our car out after yet another foot of snow. Due to the weather, we didn't do much sightseeing... but JP is a lovely neighborhood.
