Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Susan was delightful and the house had character. Although I was only able to stay for 2 nights of the 7 I booked due to unforeseen circumstances, I still had a positive experience at Melville 2. I definitely recommend if you need a place close to public transportation and you love home cooked breakfasts.

  • Susan is a person that I highly recommend.
    She is very good advice and an excellent cooker.
    You will be surprised by the quality of her breakfast, fresh fruit salad, home cakes, coffee, tea ....
    There are rules to follow but her house is very clean, nice, comfortable and big. Very close to the metro.
    Beautiful old houses to see around her Home
    I recommend the house Suzan.

  • I came to Boston for the first time on a one-week tourist trip which was part of a larger journey. After comparing a few of the profiles on this website I decided to book a room at Susan's place and in hindsight I can say that I couldn't have been more pleased: a spacious room and cosy communal areas for the guest, the house is but a short stroll from the nearest metro station in a nice residential neighborhood, all sorts of services (post office, dry cleaner) are within walking distance, going into town to sample everything the city has to offer is a piece of cake, and so is coming in from and going back out to the airport via public transportation. Susan was a brilliant host who always had the wellbeing of her guests in mind and helped with valuable tips on things worth doing and seeing. Daily breakfast was a treat, the one on Sunday is something you don't want to miss, her home-made granola is to die for. An added bonus was having two other guests in the house to team up with for a day trip out of town on the weekend. All in all a fabulous time.

  • We spent two weeks in Boston at Susan's B&B and we couldn't have found a better accomodation, everything was perfect. The beautifully furnished house was very tidy and clean, Susan was a very kind host and her breakfast was great, she cooked or baked for us, not only on weekends. The house is only a few minutes from the underground in a quiet area. I can highly recommend this B&B.

  • Our stay was wonderful, perfect and we could not have expected more from this accomodation. Susan has been a such a great host and has far more done for us than one could think of! We will definetley come back and recommend this as a perfect Bostonian experience. The B&B is close to the T and in a safe neigbourhood.

  • This was my first experience with airBnB and all I can say is Susan is great! She is such a warm and welcoming hostess and her place is perfect. And all the reviews are true....her breakfast is excellent!

    Susan is also very thoughtful. I am in the process of moving back from abroad and had an excessive amount of luggage. Even with her busy schedule, she went way out of her way to shuttle us when we arrived and departed so that I didnt have to struggle with all of my bags. I absolutely loved my visit to Boston and staying with Susan made it all the more special!

  • Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Boston. Susan est une hôte merveilleuse, très accueillante! L'endroit est très propre, le quartier très joli et c'est situé à 2 minutes du metro pour se rendre dans le centre-ville. Elle nous a conseillé certaines places où aller et ce qui pourrait nous intéresser à visiter, très belles attentions. Nous conseillons cette place à tous. Thanks again for everything Susan :)

  • Maison bien située près d'une station de métro. Chambre et lit confortables. Les déjeuners de Susan sont essentiels pour bien débuter la journée et les longues heures de marche qu'on a fait pour visiter la ville. Séjour agréable. Août 2013.
    Susan's house is conveniently located from T-train. We had a pleasant stay at Susan's house (me, a friend of mine and my son - 11 years old). The room was nice and bed comfortable. A good breakfast in the morning is the best way to start the day and Susan Knows that very well. A good time in Boston. August 2013.

    August 2013
  • We stayed 3 nights at Suzan place. It is a very convenient place to stay if you want to visit Boston using the T. You can easily park your car close to the house and take the T ( red line direct to major Boston attractions). The T is 5 min walk from the house.
    If you stay over the week end you will enjoy a gorgeous breakfast fully home made by Suzan who is a great cook. During week day, breakfast is also delicious.
    I will definitevly stay again at Suzan place if I come back to Boston.

    July 2013
  • Susan was an amazing host. She welcomes you so friendly and we had a perfect start to our trip in Boston! We already miss the breakfast! However it was just wonderful to stay at Susan's B and B!
