We never met the host, however the electronic communication level was very good. He offered to allow us to check in early as the place was vacant at the time, but we didn't take up that offer since we weren't getting in until later in the evening. Some things that were great about the location were very close to the subway station, lots of ethnic restaurants in the neighbourhood, felt very safe walking around at anytime of the day and night, place was very clean upon arrival, and all appliances and electronics worked well, especially the wi-fi. Some things that you need to be mindful of is the hot water runs out after about 15 minutes of running the shower, there's a plane landing/taking off within audible range about once an hour, the cable is good for 90% of the stations (about 200+ stations), but poor for the other 10%, and the bed was a bit too short for my boyfriend (who is 5'11").
One helpful hint if you're renting here is that there's 3 keys to open 3 doors. The keys are colour coded, so remember to use the Green, Red, and Yellow keys in that order from the outside door to the inside door. We were standing at the front door for about 2 minutes attempting the keys over and over again.
From what I experienced, the apartment was a nice little place - definitely convenient in terms of getting to the airport, and there were plenty of options for dinner close by. Found the bed to be a bit creaky, but it was bearable for one night. Overall, a decent place, and I wish I could have spent more than one night there!
Shawn was quick to respond to text messages and put himself at our disposal "24-7." We flew into Logan Int'l, rode a free shuttle to the T station, and walked to the apartment within minutes, without boarding a train or another bus. It was so easy for us to use public transit from this location. The pre-dominantly hispanic neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe, even walking home from the subway after dark. The streets were somewhat littered, but the entryway to the apartment and the apartment itself were very clean. Beds were comfortable. Apartment seemed recently outfitted with modern (IKEA) home furnishings. This was my first AirBNB experience, and I would gladly return to this location or work with Shawn if we are ever back in Boston.
The location is great because it is so close to the airport and the metro line. Also some really cute pubs within blocks. We were there for only one night - for a layover- and it was the best deal in town for 4 people and convenient. I didn't appreciate paying a $99 cleaning fee for just a few hours stay. Shawn says he has a professional cleaning team that will meet and exceed our expectations - they didn't. It wasn't unclean, but..... it suited our needs though.
Shawn has a fairly decent place. It's pretty no frills, but if you're just looking for a place to crash, then this is your spot. Taking a shower in the morning is a bit tricky, as the hot water runs out. The TV is satellite, so it was a bit sketchy. We weren't able to watch a soccer match and 1 of our weekly TV shows because of long blackouts. Be sure to bring your own soap. It's basic, so I wouldn't really recommend it for couples, but it would definitely be a good look for young people or back packers just looking to have a place to crash. You need to stay several nights to balance out the $99 cleaning fee, as it adds quite a bit to your overall cost. It's extremely close to the airport, which is a huge plus and public transportation is close. Checking in and out was seamless. I think the best thing was the fact that Rino's was two blocks over. It's an excellent Italian restaurant that was featured on the food network, so thank you to the previous reviewer who alerted us to it.
Anthony - Thank you for staying in our apartment. The home was just furnished with all brand new furniture, as indicated in the photos. Also, the television is NOT satellite. The cable is provided by Comcast and offers many channels. The weather during your trip was not typical. We received many inches of snow and heavy winds during your stay, hence the reason your flight was delayed. The cleaning fee of $99.00 is less than most rentals in the area, especially during the summer, spring and fall months, which can be upwards of $125.00. During the winter we lower our daily rates to offset the cost of the cleaning.
You are correct by mentioning Rino's. GREAT FOOD! Highly recommend! If you are ever in the area again, we would love to offer you a special repeat guest rate!
A nice apartment, very clean and as pictured in the listing. We did not meet the host, but he was very responsive to phone requests. I had accidentally erased his email with the lockbox code, and he gave it to me after I arrived at the apartment. The location is excellent with plenty of shopping, restaurants and a wonderful little bakery just around the corner on Bennington. In the other direction is a convenient 99 Cent + department store and Kelly's Pub. Rino's Place, one of the highest-ranked restaurants in all of Boston, is one long block away on Saratoga St. There is baseboard heating in the apartment and it was easy to control the temperature. My wife and I slept in different rooms so she could be warm and I could be cool. I thought the bed was comfortable, she found it too soft. The only problem we had was that the hot water ran out in the morning while she was showering.
Comfortable two bedroom apartment in Eastie. The most important thing for us was that there was unrestricted street parking. Shawn assured me that there was. Even with the massive amount of snow Boston has, we were able to find street parking within a block every evening - once right in front of the building.
Beds are comfortable, everything is clean and as described. Plenty of towels. The cable channels worked and the internet was fast. The neighborhood was quiet and there are a bunch of local restaurants and bars within walking distance.
