Gerta's place is at a great location and the room was exactly what we needed. The house is a bit creaky, so I was worried about disturbing other guests, but I don't think this was a major issue for anyone. I definitely recommend staying with Gerta in Winthrop!

Gerta's private room was both comfortable and affordable. It was easily accessible by 712 bus (as Gerta noted), and the area was very quiet and residential. Gerta herself was amiable and furnished the room with all the amenities necessary for optimal comfort. Would definitely recommend this place to any travelers to Boston/Winthrop!

Gerta is very friendly and welcoming. The area is safe and has a great pizza place about a block away! Gerta rents out 3 rooms in her upstairs, however the posting only shows a picture of one room. 2 of the rooms are very nice, while one of them is significantly smaller and reminded us of Harry Potter's "Cupboard Under The Stairs." Renting from here is a game of Russian Roulette, as we weren't given any choice of room. If the size of the room doesn't matter to you, this place is a great option. (if you don't have transportation, the nearest subway is a bus-ride away)

The room was great for the price and you certainly get what you paid for. HOWEVER, note that the rooms really do not look as nice as they do in the pictures. We also did not receive the room we originally booked which was quite a bummer. Another problem was that the rooms do not have a lock. the bigger problem was that the bathroom lock does not work. One can simply push the door open with the lock and will still be able to walk in on you showering. Other than that, Gerta was a nice host and we didn't have any other problems.

We had a few issues with this stay. Firstly after being checked in by Gerta we realised the room we were staying in was not the one we had booked and paid for online and there and been no effort to let us know this. We wouldn't have minded if we had been told once we arrived. The main problem with this new room was that the bed was actually two single bases put together with the most uncomfortable mattress put on top. Secondly the shower in the shared bathroom upstairs had no way to attach the head to the wall, so you had to stand in a cold bathtub and hold the shower head against yourself while fumbling with washing hair etc. we asked her if there was a way to attach it to the wall so we could have a normal shower and she said she's tried everything but it keeps breaking, which we didn't find a good enough excuse really. Lastly some friends of Gerta's came over on Christmas Day which was fine, except despite her "no smoking" policy listed they were all smoking indoors and the smell reached up to our room on the next floor and stayed there until the next day, despite opening windows etc The general cleanliness of the house also wasn't great, everything needed a vacuum and a wipe in the shared areas. Apart from that, it was a pretty quiet and easy neighbourhood, with easy public transport access into town.

Gerta's place was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay! The location wasn't perfect, as it was a 20-30 minute drive to Boston and about a $15 dollar Uber ride, but still a great deal.

The stay with Gerta was amazing! Her house is beautiful and in a great location if you're visiting Boston. Gerta is also extremely kind, it landed where our stay was on Thanksgiving and she invited us to join her and served us amazing food! I would highly recommend staying with Gerta!!
