Clean, comfortable, and very convenient. Lyndsay was kind, communicative and accommodating. Lyndsay wasn't there when I arrived but made it easy for me to get in and had everything I needed ready. And when I moderately overslept for my early morning flight, it was alright be cosas this space is so close to the airport! Great experience all around - would def stay here again/recommend to a friend.
Great location for getting to the historic areas. Really great deal overall
Lyndsay was helpful with instructions about how to get to her place, and left the keys for me at a convenient location. The neighborhood was nice, close to and easily accessible from the aiport. The apartment was lovely and very well kept.
My husband and I had a great stay at Lyndsay's apartment. Very close to the airport which was convenient for our early morning flight, and a beautiful, comfortable and quiet apartment. Did not get the opportunity to meet Lyndsay, however communication with her was easy and responses were quick. Would definitely recommend!
Patty and I were catching an early flight out of Boston and wanted to stay somewhere nearby that was affordable. Boy did we find a great room that fit that criteria to a tee.Lyndsay's apartment is in East Boston about a 5 to 10 minute drive from the airport (we had a rental car). But we found out, by actually walking to check it out, that Airport Station subway station connects with the airport shuttle system. That is a 10 minute walk from Lyndsay's,and I'm more of a limping hobbler these days, so most folks would make it in less time. So I think its great if you want easy access to the airport and public transportation.We chose to drop the car off in the morning after considering taking it the evening before, but the parking on Princeton St. didn't appear to have restrictions so we got a space and kept it. The Kelly Square Pub is 2 or 3 blocks away, we ended up having a pint or 2 there, then opted to eat there they serve an enormous bowl of clam chowder some good comfort food.But there are a few other restaurants nearby they must be good they had waiting lists. So Lyndsay's room suited us perfectly,the house was clean, our bed was really comfortable and the neighbor hood was quiet. We never met Lyndsay but we did text once or twice, she definitely conveyed friendliness. I'd do it again if I was in Boston.
Lyndsay's place is exactly as advertised. She made her Keurig machine and cups available to us in the morning, and there was room in fridge for us to keep some food. We stayed for 4 days in mid-August. We only saw Lyndsay twice over that time period. Whenever we had questions she was very prompt in responding via email.
The neighborhood looks a little rough when you first arrive, but the area has basically no crime, and you quickly realize that it is perfectly safe to come and go at any time of day or night.
Only 2 complaints: This location a bit out of the way of the tourist-y things to see in Boston (nearly everything is 40 minutes away by T if you figure in the walking and waiting for training). If you're visiting for a leisurely vacation where you're not a tight schedule, this location will do fine. If you only have 2 days to see everything, you might want to find a place closer to the city center. My other complaint is the wi-fi is nearly non-existent in the bedroom. A wi-fi extender would be great.
About the Host, Lyndsay
Boston based music, food, and adventure expert.
I have been in Boston for 10 years. I live in East Boston and love to stay active. I do have a roommate that is also staying with me through March so there will be a second person in the house.
I work pretty long hours so I am rarely at home. When I am home at night, I usually am in bed early so don't be alarmed if you don't see very much of me.
