This was actually my first airbnb experience and it was great! Afiyah was so nice and responsive to my every concern. Didint get to meet her but her sister was soooo nice and even walked us to the subway station which is like 10 mins away. House is real nice, the view is awesome, bed was great, never even heard the planes, bathroom is somewhat small but practical and who really cares about it. Breakfast was good, coffee, cereal of a several kinds, wouldve want like more ham and stuff like that haha but maybe thats just me. Afiyah was really awesome and I will always remember her as my first airbnb experience and now I feel really comfortable booking thru it. She gives you a number to get a cab if you ned one, called them and they were there in time. Transportation is really easy and subways up to 3 am now, even better! I did see the dog upstairs but that was my error as the rooms are on the main floor, it was a really cute dog, never heard it bark once. Housr, room, bathroom, towels clean! I felt like I was at a really nice inn! I hope this review gets Afiyah a lot of business she truly deserves it!
The host: Afiyah was a wonderful host! She stopped in to welcome us to the area and was very helpful with anything we needed. She was accommodating to our busy schedule and worked around us for check-in and check-out times. She was very welcoming, warm, and happy to help.
The house: The place is huge and each room has more than enough space for two people to stay. The common areas (sun room, living room, kitchen) are organized, clean and full of everything you need. The kitchen was stocked and we were free to use it whenever (essential for early morning coffee drinkers) and it felt like home. A great place to stay if you want a relaxing evening in Boston.
The area: The neighborhood was quiet and nice with beautiful views. Sunset and sunrise were amazing. The airport is right across the bay but it is definitely not noisy. Free available parking was a huge help!
We slept great and will definitely stay there again when we go back to Boston. A great deal and a wonderful experience overall.
Afiyah is a great host. The room was clean and cozy. You can even enjoy a small breakfast buffet. ( coffee, tea, milk, jam, peanut butter, cereals, fresh fruit, bagels) Its set up the whole day, so when you arrive late, you can have a small snack before going to bed. Its short walking distance to the T station Orient Heights, 8 min walk. Taxi to airport about 12 USD.
The House is located at a small bay across the airport. Since the airport is so close there is some noise from departing/ landing aircrafts. But it didnt annoy me at all, had a good night sleep.
Afiyah is a very nice host. She stayed up late to greet us even when we arrived late ~1am. Everything looked exactly like how they are in the pictures. The bed was comfy. The breakfast buffet was helpful with many choices. The room and the common areas were clean and tidy. The walk to the T station is ~12min so it might be a problem especially when it's windy and rains (it was raining one night when I got back ~9pm) but the neighborhood seemed safe. Very convenient for late arrivals cuz the house is really close to the airport ($12 cab fare for me at 1am).
The place was nice. It could have been a little bit cleaner. But they were very good people. And it was cool that they had breakfast stuff laid out for guests.
My stay at Afiyah's house was great ! I did not meet her but the room was ready and there was a breakfast. The house is really nice with an ocean view. You can see the buildings of Boston. This is beautiful.
Me and my girlfriend stayed with Afyiah and Jim for 2 nights. Their house was lovely, the room was very comfy and clean and everything just felt like it was carefuly thought of for our fun experience. the location, 5 minutes from the T to downtown boston and right on the beach, was perfect. Jim and Afiyah were lovely hosts, caring and welcoming, and we've had a ton of fun staying with them and getting to know them. Thank you guys so much for having us! Next time we're in Boston - there's no other place i'd rather stay!
Our stay was enjoyable! The next morning was cozy in the sunroom with breakfast offerings, a delightful conversation with Afiyah, and a lovely view of the Bay. We only stayed one evening, but it was perfec for us as we arrived very early in the morning and the room was not far from the airport.
We had some trouble finding the house, (not Afiyah's fault!), but were very happy to finally land there. It was a great location for us & a nice place to return to after heading into Boston. Afiyah & Jim were very helpful, providing Mapquest maps for the next leg of our journey. It was surprisingly quiet, given the proximity of the airport - especially when you want it quiet ... for sleeping! The sun porch facing the street & water (& airport) was a great place to sit with a cup of something.
Would stay here again. Thank-you, Afiyah & Jim for your hospitality. We enjoyed meeting your springer spaniel, too!
We had a great stay at Afiyah's - we didn't arrive until quite later, and left very early the next morning to catch a flight, but the time we did spend there was good. Afiyah's is very welcoming, the house is lovely and the breakfast spread just what we needed. The view over boston and the airport at night is amazing.
