Nitzan was amazing host from the start. We had a late flight arrival close to 11:30pm - he greeted us in the lobby, gave us a nice tour of the unit which by the way is very nicely appointed with modern furniture, all of the amenities one could desire. There were fresh organic milk, orange juice, coffee , bagels, tortilla wraps in the fridge. Place had automatic dimming lights with remote control. Nitzan has very good taste and feel for designing the space and decorating the unit to make it feel modern yet with authentic feel of Bostonian history to it. Bed is very comfortable, showers and bathrooms are amazing. Needless to say - we loved every minute of it.
Nitzan was really great. He responded quickly to my initial Air BnB request and throughout the process of setting up the stay, and he continued to respond immediately to texts once I was set up in the apartment. He was flexible with my arrival and departure times, which was really helpful. Nitzan met me at the apartment, showed me all of the amenities, gave me a tour of the building, and facilitated my parking in the garage. The kitchen was stocked with breakfast items and coffee fixings, and Nitzan even left me with a bottle of wine to enjoy. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos, or possibly even better. It was clean, comfortable, and the perfect place for me to live this week while I worked in Cambridge. The building is super safe, and the neighbors were very friendly to me and my dogs (who were with me this week). For the person traveling with dogs, there are plenty of green spaces in the area for walks, and a mulched area to the side of the building for quick runs outside. The Navy Pier area of Charlestown is super quaint. I had never spent time in that area before, and it is fast becoming one of my favorite neighborhoods in the Boston area. I woke up to the sound of seagulls every morning. This was a perfect stay and host.
Nitzen was a great host, always available and ready to help. The apartment is exactly as shown on AirBnB and very comfortable for a small family.
Nitzan makes you feel so much at home. Everything you need is there, and some things are a pleasant surprise, like coffee, a yoghurt, some cereal, butter. We actually needed a few of those!
The place is spotless and comfortable
Nitzan was easy to get in contact with and the whole process was well organised.
The location was great and the apartment was as described in the listing. Well presented and comfortable.
I would not hesitate to recommend in the future.
Nitzan is a delightful host, warm and welcoming, full of information about the area, dining and sights to see. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met!
Nitzen was the most amazing host, very informative, welcoming, full of information about the area and local amenities. Nitzen was especially kind to us during our stay. The condo is just beautiful, very peaceful, beautifully decorated and very high end. The location was just perfect for us and we enjoyed Charlestown, a beautiful area, wonderful neighborhood and location on the water, great food, friendly people and convenient to everything with great public transportation at the doorstep, good parking under building too.
We would definitely stay again! Thank you Nitzen
