A good size room, with a very comfy queen size bed and a full size closet in a beautifull house.
A shared bathroom. Everything is very clean.
Steps to the public trans.
Within 15 min you are downtown Boston and Airport.
Within 2 min walk you are in front of the beach.
Gerta accepted my request even though I didn't arrive in the Boston area until late in the evening (not a suggestion, but I am very grateful). Her home was beautiful and the photos absolutely do not justify it's charm. In the early morning I had the opportunity to speak with her and her husband and they helped me to locate areas that were relevant to my interests as far as finding a permanent home was concerned. The area was beautiful and for a west coast soul like mine, my first true sunrise was captivating from only a few blocks away!
I'm very grateful for my time in her home,
My guest and I arrived at Gerta's home late into the evening due to inclement weather around 10 PM. Gerta greeted us with smiles and gave us a quick tour around. Our room was already set and prepared for our 2 night stay.
The house is beautiful and so is Gerta's family. She gave us plenty of privacy and helpful tips to navigate the area. Public transportation (bus) is about a 2 minute stroll from her house. The taxi, Viking, will take you to the blue line for 5 dollars (Beachmont station). The bus will take you there for 1.50/2.00 I think.
Gerta's family is truly pleasant. We felt right at home.
This room was wonderful and so was Gerta. She was very accommodating and friendly. We could not have asked for a better host. The place was quiet and peaceful- the prefect base camp for full day expeditions into the city.
Sometimes waiting for the bus to come can be slow. Just call viking taxi its just 5 bucks to the blueline.
Tres belle maison, gerta est tres sociable , nous avons étés tres bien recus.
La maison est idéalement située , a quelques minutes en bus de la station de metro qui elle meme est a quelque station du centre.
Autour de la maison, des superettes et des petits resto ou prendre un ptit dej et dejeuner.
Gerta and John are kind and very helpful. The home is gorgeous and the room is cozy. The bed is very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
Cozy bedroom.. Big house. Met Gerta and husband who let us walk their dog which makes it an interesting fun stay :)
it was wonderful staying at gerta's. perfect spot in winthrop: cozy, clean and warm. gerta and her family are super nice and the place is everything you need to have a perfect stay. we'll def going back there in our next trip to boston!
Staying at Gerta's was great! She was very accommodating and very sweet. She had a lot of good suggestions on what to do in Boston (for all ages!). Her house and the rooms she rents out are very beautiful and cozy during the winter months. She is very flexible and willing to help out if you have any questions or concerns. 1 min walk to the bus stop and a direct route to the T made this a very efficient and smooth stay in Winthrop. Me and my friend could not have asked for a better host while we vacationed and toured the city. I would definitely stay here again.
We loved had a moment with Gerta and her husband, their home is very pleasant. The value for money is good. Note that take the bus then the metro to downtown Boston if you're walking. To wash, the water is not very hot (lukewarm actually).
I really enjoyed staying at Gerta's! The room and the bathroom were spacious and tidy. Gerta was extremely friendly and helpful. The best thing was the neighborhood with it's cute wooden houses and a beach.
