About This Listing
Private bedroom with doulebed and kitchen privileges available for temporary stay. Located in a brick two-family home on Boston harbor, this house has spectacular views of the ocean, airport and Boston skyline. Enjoy access to the porch inside and out, with wireless access available throughout. Safe neighborhood, convenient to blue line, shops, restaurants and beach. Across from airport, parking available.
The place is as described. great location if traveling by T. If driving always add 10-15 mins for travel (you'll need it).
The house is great. Love the masks on the wall. Nice view of the bay. I enjoyed seating in the front taking pics of the planes taking off. The front porch was nice to seat and relax, maybe enjoy your morning coffee.
My only concern was that my room was pretty small for two adults and a dog. Had to find my dog her own place to stay.
A terrific location so close to the airport, convenient if you have a car since there is plenty of street parking. The views across the water towards the airport are just stunning but no worries about the airport sounds because once you're inside you can't hear them. The enclosed porch was a lovely space to sit in and enjoy the views. They have installed a keyless entry system so the front door stays locked most of the time. A couple of things of note are that there is a not insignificant toll to go back into the city through the tunnels so you might want to investigate alternate routes, if possible. Also, there are 3 bedrooms that are rented downstairs and no locks on the bedroom doors so you need to be comfortable with a boarding house type situation with a lot of shared space. My first night there there were 4 renters sharing one bathroom. Other than that, a delightful stay!
I lucked out with Jim & Afiyah's house. Felt very welcome in their house located literally next to the water. Unfortunately, I was in and out so quickly; therefore, did not get a chance to meet J/A. Eveything was as described. However J/A description "Temporary Housing Boston" does not do their house justice. Perhaps, "Water Front House E. Boston" instead as it was so relaxed and fresh in this area with a great view of the Boston skyline, water, and airplanes (not noisy at all). The neighbours were friendly, playing football out on the street along with BBQ. 5 min. walk to the Metro Blue Line and only 2 stops from Logan Airport. For convenience the taxi was ca. $10-12. to airport. Conveniently, only 5 stops to city centre State /Congress St. Towels, hair dryer, and amenities all provided.
Although I didn't get a chance to meet with the hosts, I was very satisfied with this place. The view, the cleanliness, the breakfast and all the little details. Jim was prompt and thorough when asked about something. I was the only guest the night I spent here, so it felt like the whole house was mine. Definitely recommend.
Definitely coming back again if I happens to be in Boston! Jim & Afiyah was very helpful in providing direction tips. The room was very clean and quite. Can't complain.
The house is in East bostin, so a bit far from the city center, the train station is 10 min walk. The house is right in front if the ocean! It is so beautifil! Woth a great bow window where you can relax , think, have breakfast...everything is very well organized ans even if I saw Jim only the last day I had everything to have a great continental breakfast and to feel safe. I recomend it both to couples, because it is very romantic, or sinhles. Jim was so nice that he even drove me to the airport because my taxi was late and I was misding my flight. I regret not being able to interact with him more because he seems a great person!his neighbour who came to fix the door handle was really nice too. It is better however to come with a car.
