Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Hi Susan I have begun to talk english with my (website hidden) is amazing.Thank you for your apple cupcake and your banana bread are delicious.

  • I came to Boston on a 2 month secondment in research. The house is close to all amenities and has a subway stop very close by. It’s in a fairly quiet neighbourhood which is great to unwind in after the hustle and bustle of long day in the City/work. Onto the room, it was very roomy, with plenty of space. There was a small desk great for getting things done, alongside a dresser and a closet for clothes. Susan looked after the room well and provided courteous service with respect to it throughout.

    For a short stay I’d definitely recommend this place however for something longer I would definitely not. There are rules and regulations in place, which are understandable, but are applied and enforced haphazardly leading to misery. From the third week of my stay everything crumbled and I stayed on in constant terror of what I may fall foul of. Unfortunately, I was unable to move as the place had been prepaid by my organization. Everything looked rosy, but I stayed on with these problems.

  • Susan is a wonderfull hoster, the house is clean, nice and next to the Red Line, in 20 min you can stay in Boston Downtown.

    Perfect place to enjoy the seaside and beach, practise sport and brief pure air.

    Susan is a great chef, the breakfast on the weekends is one of the best things of my stay!

    Thanks Susan!!

  • I had a great time at Susan's place. She is an amazing host and cooks very well. The house is 3 minutes from the metro that goes straight to downtown. I so recommend this place that I'm here again. Thanks for everything Susan.

  • This was my 1st experience through air bnb. I hope that all future stays are as comfortable. Breakfast was great with something special prepared fresh each day, and plenty of good advice on what to do in town. Susan greeted me at 10:30pm after a long 30 hour journey. The bed was really comfortable!

  • This was my first time using AirBnB, and I couldn't of picked a better place to stay. Her house was clean, orderly, and located very close to the Shawmut T station. Susan was a fantastic host and really helped make our Boston trip memorable. It was a pleasure meeting her and I would recommend her BnB to anyone visiting Boston.

    July 2012
  • We had a very nice time while staying with Susan. She is organized and hospitable--leaving no detail unchecked. By running a tight ship, she ensures you will have everything you need and that guests are considerate of each other. Our room was cozy, and the comfortable bed was perfect after long days of site-seeing.

    The breakfast was delicious and be prepared to be surprised by delightful treats throughout your stay. :)

    Just a short walk to the T, you'll be able to get anywhere in Boston easily. And Susan is a wonderful resource--providing helpful tips and suggestions for things to do and places to eat.

    Clean, professionally-run accommodations. Definitely recommend.

  • Es la primera vez que hago uso de un B&B y la verdad es que no tengo palabras para decirles lo bien que me sentí con Susan. Ella es just Amazing!¡ - La casa se encuentra solo a 5 minutos de la estación del metro en un tranquilo vecindario, Susan es una gran guía turística, puede darte muchos consejos acerca de la ciudad; sus desayunos y en especial sus cookies son deliciosos. Os animo a compartir esta experiencia.

    저는 친구와 함께 이곳에 머물렀는데 정말 말이 필요없는 매력적인 B&B였습니다. 처음에 호텔을 알아보다가 보스턴 물가가 너무 비싸서 차선책으로 알아본 곳이었는데 너무나 만족스러운 선택이었습니다.
    Susan은 따로 일정이 없던 저희에게 3일내내 꽉 찬 여행을 할 수 있게 완벽한 정보를 제공해 주었고 깔끔하고 모던하고 너무 아름다운 그녀의 집은 구석구석 그녀의 감각의 묻어 나는 사랑스러운 공간이었습니다.
    정갈한 아침식사는 아침부터 그녀로부터 대접 받는 기분을 들게 해 주었고 매일 저녁 그녀와 함께하는 대화는 잊을 수 없는 추억입니다.
    너무나 아름답고 매력적인 보스턴에서 가장 사랑스런 그녀의 B&B는 보스턴에 방문계획을 갖고 있는 모든 분들께 적극 추천하고 싶은 곳입니다.

  • We have travel to Boston for work purposes but we had the best business-pleasure stay at Susan's BnB. It is the perfect place to have a relaxing stay at Boston. With the "T" station just around the corner and within 5 stations to the city centre, in a quiet neighbourhood.

    And what can we say about Susan. She is the perfect hostess. She kindly suggested us places in Boston to visit or to eat, and any other question we had she helped us.

    She provide us with amazing breakfasts and during the weekend... even better ones!!!

    We were so pleased to have the experience of staying there. If visiting again we will sure have no doubt in whree to stay.

  • Susan went above what we would have expected during our visit to Boston. She was extremely helpful in acclimating us to the Boston area,
    A nice surprise also that she made special treats and breakfast foods in line with my gluten sensitivity. Her home is lovely and very convenient for a trip into historic Boston.
