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.
The house was beautiful and the room was perfect for our stay. The bed was super comfortable, with A/C that we could control. The shared bathroom was fine, we didn't have any issues. It was perfectly located a stones throw from the beach and coffee shops! It was a 20 minute uber from Downtown Boston. We will def stay there again! Thanks!
The room is large and clean however the deco is a bit different from the pictures. It was great to be able to use the kitchen. We didn't meet gerta as she was in holiday but she explained us how to come however she never answered to our questions once we were here. According to us if you are looking for an airbnb experience and if you want to talk with your host, this place looked to us more like a hotel (3 rooms and more) so it is a good place where to sleep but not to communicate.
Jag träffade aldrig Gerta men hon gav all information jag behövde. Huset är beläget i ett vackert och lugnt område, nära till närlivsbutiker samt bussar in till tunnelbanan. Det gick också bra att promenera in till tunnelbanan på drygt 30 minuter. Rummet var verkligen perfekt, allt var rent och fungerade bra. Rekommenderar detta boende starkt.
Room and bathroom were clean and bed was comfortable. The room was a bit stuffy, which the aircon didn't seem to help much. Parking is normally with a permit on-street a short walk from the house, though we used a space on the drive, presumably free because Gerta was away.
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!
