About this listing
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.
We never met Gerta, but everything was clean and ready when we arrived. The location was great in terms of being close to the beach, but for anyone not used to public transportation, it takes a bit of effort to travel anywhere. We had to figure out bus schedules, train systems, etc. and having more information on that would've been helpful.
This room is on the top level of the house which meant a lot of steep, skinny stairways. Just be prepared with luggage. The views are great and the bed was comfortable, but there is no air conditioning. Our room was a sauna. The first night we arrived we actually walked to a CVS a mile away just to purchase fans because even those weren't in the rooms (nor are there ceiling fans). The sleeping temperature was not comfortable at all. Sharing a bathroom with other guests usually worked out well, but one of them ate some of our food in the kitchen and left the remainder and some crumbs on the counter (not reflecting anything poorly on Gerta with this... not her fault!). Considering this was my first time booking with airbnb, that single event would make me reconsider sharing space again in the future.
Although we did not get to meet Gerta (she was on vacation when we stayed) her instructions before we arrived were clear and very helpful! Her house is completely beautiful, we couldn't believe it when we first pulled up!! We walked to the train station and got the subway into Boston everyday but it was far to walk for anyone who doesn't like walking. However a cab (to the station) is only $5.50 which is very reasonable!! If we return to Boston, we would very much like to stay here again! Thankyou Gerta!!
We had a great stay at Gerta's place. The house is clean and in a very nice neighborhood. It takes only a couple of minutes to the beach. The connection to the airport and to the city is also very good (bus and metro). We highly recommend this place!
Gerta's house was the perfect location for our small weekend getaway to Boston. Very close to public transportation and quick walk to a relaxing beach! We were unable to meet with her because of both of our busy schedules but nonetheless, her son was most hospitable to welcome us. The house is beautiful! Thank you again Gerta! Cant wait to return.
We had a great stay at Gerta's home. The house is beautiful, very quiet and in a lovely neighbourhood. I would highly recommend staying here!
Great stay in a charming town with excellent views, great dining options and easy access to city and airport.
Gerta was a very accommodating host. When our check in plans changed and we came in later she was very flexible. Her home is located on a beautiful, quiet peninsula and you wake to the sound of birds. It was very peaceful. There is a small parking lot close by that you can park in after Gerta provides you with a parking permit. Jac's Cafe is close by and they have a delicious menu! One thing to keep in mind is that you do have to share the bathroom with other guests. Since there are 3 rooms on the same floor that could potentially be a lot of people. It's also an older historical home and most of the rooms are located on the third floor and there are no elevators. We were ok with going up the stairs, but sharing one bathroom with 6 people was a challenge.
