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 hat uns empfangen und gleich das Haus und uns unser Zimmer gezeigt. Leider haben wir nicht das ausgesuchte Zimmer bekommen, sondern ein ähnliches. Die Küche und das Bad waren sehr geräumig und funktionell eingerichtet. Der Strand ist sehr nah gelegen und hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Man hat einen sehr guten Anschluss an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel, um Boston zu besichtigen.
Even tho we were a little late, gertas daughter welcomed us with open arms and immediately shot us the login data for the wifi. thumbs up for that :)
as for the room itself: it was clean and comfortable, we had a big bathroom for 3 parties and a kitchen we would all share.
it was easy to get to boston DT since the busses and trains would get one there every 20minutes or smth.
everybody not familiar with the situation would be wise to buy a metro card for a week, which is about 20 bucks.
after our regular stay, we needed another day to stay within our schedule, so we needed an additional day (which was "tomorrow") - it was not a problem at all since gerta really tried her best to get her visitors to feel welcomed and she would help at any opportunity, which at some point can make one feel guilty for asking (which is a good thing for a host imho).
we would stay at her place again if the opportunity presented itself again :)
We had a wonderful stay in Gertas lovely appartment. Every morning we walked across the sea and it is not far with the bus to the Metro Station. We would definitely come back.
Logement agréable et très bien situé par rapport à l'aéroport de Boston. Quelques commerces de bouche à proximité.
Gerta est très sympathique.
My girlfriend and I had a great experience at Gerta's. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. We do recommend it for anyone visiting boston
•Gerta was super friendly and made me feel quite welcome. Don’t be afraid of their German shepherd dog who is actually quite sweet.
•My room was comfortable and roomy.
•They had one power strip in the room, but it didn’t work. Since I used my computer and other electronic devices that required charging, it was a good thing I brought my own power strip.
•The kitchen was nice and it was easy to prepare my food easily. The refrigerator was quite full, however, and it was pretty challenging to fit my food in it.
•They ran out of paper towels on the second day I was there. Good thing I brought my own because when I checked out on the fourth day, I didn’t see a new roll of paper towels yet.
•Same with the wastebasket under the sink. I would have liked to empty the wastebasket and put in a fresh trash bag, but I couldn’t find any. The wastebasket was pretty much full the whole time I was there.
•There was a bedside table with a lamp on it, but there was no place to plug in the lamp. I went to the store and bought an extension cord.
•The shower was quite unusual and the water flow was pretty minimal, but it’s an old house. The bathroom, overall, was roomy and nice. And there were clean towels and wash cloths.
•If you are heavy and out of shape, prepare yourself for a lot of climbing (up four flights of stairs). But I took it on as a challenge and I think I might have lost some weight too.
•There was no off-street parking available. It was a designated “snow emergency” the four days I was there so I had to park in a public parking lot and walk down a road and then up a hill to get to the house. Because of the unusual frequency of snowstorms, I found myself doing a lot of walking down narrow streets without plowed sidewalks. Again, I treated it like an opportunity for exercise.
•My neighbors (in rooms near mine) were nice but weren’t comfortable speaking English, so I didn’t really have the benefit of talking or socializing with any of the other airbnb people in the house.
•I didn’t see any public space for watching TV. But I was very pleased with the internet wifi signal. It was strong and I enjoyed watching movies on my Kindle Fire tablet in bed.
