  • We were absolutely blown away by our stay! I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend away from school and could not be happier with how it turned out. The pictures are very true to life and everything was wonderfully comfortable and updated. Elizabeth could not have been more accommodating and helpful! I would spend every weekend in the suite if I could!!

  • There are some people who exude "home", "comfort", "welcome", "care". Elizabeth Gittings is one of them. From her kind and thoughtful emails after our booking to find out any needs we may have while celebrating our ten year anniversary in her stunning suite to the delicious brunch items she left for us every morning—we have never felt more pampered than during our stay with Elizabeth. The suite itself is a must see. The pictures simply do not do it justice. What makes the suite so special is you get a glimpse into Elizabeth's beautiful heart, keen eye, and her passion for Morocco. There is a book full of information that she put together herself describing the pieces she acquired on her many trips and history of the region that truly makes it feel like you've been transported to Morocco. The memory my husband and I will always remember is how we were so flustered when we came in from our babysitters running late, our car service getting lost, and the rain, that we were going to just order in a pizza and call it a night. Can you imagine? A pizza on our first night of our anniversary weekend? But Elizabeth encouraged us to keep our reservation at a Moroccan-inspired restaurant just a short walk away from the suite and she even offered to call them to push back our reservation. Armed with a borrowed umbrella (again from Elizabeth and her partner Bill), dressed up, and ready to shake off the events of the evening, my husband and I headed out and had a marvelous time. It's this type of intuitive hospitality that Elizabeth offers her guests, that left an indelible mark our hearts. We are so grateful to have met and stayed with Elizabeth. Book this marvelous place. It's worth every penny and more. Elizabeth and her home are gems.

  • My overall rating would actually be a 4.5. Everything was extremely delightful and accommodating. The Owner and Staff were welcoming and made us have a home away from home experience. I was celebrating my 32nd birthday and the Owner was thoughtful enough to provide a card and bottle of delicious wine.The pictures on the website depicted the Bed and Breakfast perfectly. Also, the location was very convenient for any destination in Boston and nightlife entertainment. In addition, it was ideal for local public transportation (The "T") and there was a grocery story within a 5 minute walk. In addition, the bed could make one sleep for a life time and the B&B included books, movies and anything you'd need. Therefore, you really did not have a reason to leave. Further, the Owner (Elizabeth), her spouse (Bill) and her friend (Margaret) were very friendly, provided their personal phone numbers and email addresses to be contacted at anytime for any assistance. I would highly recommend this Moroccan getaway to anyone looking for peace, tranquility and relaxation.

  • Elizabeth was so accommodating, leaving Prosecco for us because she knew that we had a winery in CA. She called to make sure that everything was fine when our son, daughter-in-law, and their friends came over for dinner one night. The apartment was so well equipped with high quality soaps, shampoos, and lotions. The location was fine for us as we could walk over the bridge and take the train anywhere.
    The beautiful pieces that Elizabeth has collected and some designed by her make the Moroccan Suite feel like a visit to a Sultan's mini-palace.

  • This is the second birthday I have spent at Elizabeth's perfect place. She goes above and beyond to make me feel right at home. From the scent of fresh flowers when u walk in to the cleanliness of this "oasis" u are left yearning to come back. In addition I walked into a beautiful papyrus birthday card and hearty breakfast ingredients waiting to be cooked. Thank u Elizabeth and bill. It's a truly amazing place u have. I can't wait to plan my next stay with you.

  • We had such a great time at this cozy Moroccan suite on our visit to Boston. The room was clean and elegant, the host was easy to access, and everything was delivered as promised. To boot, I forgot half my wardrobe in the closet, and Elizabeth went beyond her duty to mail them back to Canada.

    A wonderful host, a wonderful place. You should go!

  • Our hosts were so kind to let us leave our bags early so we could enjoy the day in Boston before our actual check in later. When we arrived late and tired, voila! .... our bags were in our luxurious suite. The accommodations were PERFECT! Comfy bed, lots of room, super lovely and a terrific kitchen.. My only regret is that we didn't get to spend enough time in our suite. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We LOVE Boston!!

About
Friendly art historian/designer. Born and raised in Asia, I love international design and traditional folk arts, which is why my spaces are eclectic, decorated in European, Pan-Asian, and Moroccan styles. One of the main reasons I like sharing my spaces is because, in this way, I am also sharing experiences and beauty I have encountered while traveling.
