This was the second time we stayed with Arthur. His place is very convenient when we come to Ipswich to visit with family. Plenty of choices for breakfast, very comfortable accommodations.
Everything went as planned. Arthur was a gracious host. He left us early in the morning with a full fridge of breakfast items. We had a great visit
Arthur is amiable and accommodating. He was very helpful in helping us find places, answering our questions and providing us with a healthy breakfast. He made us feel welcome, but also offered us plenty of privacy -- a fine line to navigate, I'm sure! His place was clean and comfortable, and close to a very nice beach! It is also within walking distance of some Good seafood eateries!
Arthur is a great host. we had a lovely time staying with him and getting to know the area through his insight and knowledge. Everything was as described in his profile. The neighborhood was clean and quiet and to our liking. Crane Beach was as beautiful as Arthur described so feel free to check it out yourself.
GREAT STAY. THE HOUSE WAS WONDERFUL . THE FOOD WAS THE BEST. THANK YOU SO MUCH..
I had a good stay here. Easy check in, everything was ready. Room is exactly like pictures. Art was always available by text.
