Susan was extremely professional yet welcoming and amiable. She made my family and I feel welcomed into her lovely home and was available for any questions we had about our stay in Boston as well as suggestions for places to go or things to do from a local's opinion. Susan was easy to talk to and treated us very well with her homemade desserts and treats! The train stop was a short walk away which was incredibly convenient for going into downtown Boston, we definitely would stay with Susan again when visit Boston in the future! Thanks for everything :)
What a fantastic stay! First time using airBnB and if it's always like that, I will use it more often for sure! Susan prepare multiple little sweet things that made our stay more enjoyable every day... Very good host and a very nice location near the subway station... Just being close to this station made our experience in Boston much better! If I ever return to Boston I'll ask again for a room... By the way Zoe (the dog) took care of our daughter!:) one less thing to care about! Hihi!:)
Susan was very caring for us. Breakfast was great. Subway (T) close to the house.
Houserules were very strict, whereby we didn't feel fully relaxed
Susan is a wonderful host! She made my mom, grandma and I feel so welcomed. Her place is well situated for touring Boston. The room was very comfortable for the three of us. The house is very clean and has a natural warmth to it. Also, her breakfast is yummy- I especially enjoyed the cranberry bread!
Susan is a really nice host and the room is neat & clean.
The location is near red line which is convenient to go downtown and other spots. We really enjoyed our stay.
The house is very well located for the T (subway system). Susan is very helpful. Breakfast excellent. On arrival, after a long journey, tired, warm, really just want to shower, change clothes etc., discussion re what we wanted to do in the area at this stage a bit premature, maybe a more casual approach. Zoe (the dog) very friendly !
My friend and I came into Boston to see the city and Susan's place was the perfect place for us. It was clean, had easy access to public transportation (the Shawmut T station is just around the corner) and Susan was a great host. Breakfast was amazing and it was very easy to come and go throughout the day to see the city.
