Emily was fabulous. Very attentive and quick to respond. Her home was beautiful and and easy walk to the red line Shamut station which we used daily in lieu of renting a car. The neighborhood was quaint and we felt very safe walking from the station to Emily's home. Emily's 2 BR 1 BA home was well appointed and renovated without losing the character of the period of the home. A lovely place to hang your hat after a long day. Lancelot was a hoot and could have kept us entertained for hours. Thank you Emily, if we ever plan to return to Boston we will definitely be looking you up again.
We were really pleased with Emily's apartment. The apartment is very spacious, with two large bedrooms and an updated kitchen and bathroom. The apartment was very clean & tidy. We relied on transit to get around while we were in Boston, and it is super easy to get downtown Boston and to the airport from Shawmut station. Their cat was very friendly, even with our 18-month-old daughter chasing him around. Overall we had a great time!
Emily's apartment was beautiful and, indeed, immaculate. Much more elegant than it appears in the pictures. She was very helpful and welcoming in advance of our trip and provided everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The neighborhood is fine, although not where one would probably like to hang out. But it is very convenient for getting in and out of Boston and street parking was easy. Lancelot is a charmer.
Nous avons passés un superbe séjour chez Emily. La maison était très très propre, très accueillante et très fonctionnelle. Située à maximum 10 minutes à pied d'une station de métro nous arrivions au centre-ville de Boston très rapidement. Stationnement gratuit dans la rue et chat très affectueux inclus!! Je recommande fortement !!! Merci Emily!
Emily communicated with me regularly about our reservation, answered all my questions and made my first booking with airbnb a good one.
The housing is quite dense in the area and street parking is at a premium, however we always found parking within 500m of the house. The home itself is clean and well laid out. Very quiet between rooms and everyone had space to themselves. I love the simplicity of commuting to Umas and to downtown on the sub way.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Emily left good instructions. Lancelot was super friendly. Very easy to get into the city from the red line. We had a great time!
We had a wonderful time. The place was spotless. Emily did a great job of communicating and ensuring we had everything we needed. Lancelot (our furry "host" for the weekend) was a sweetheart. Thanks for the great stay!
