Elizabeth's home was an incredible fusion of styles - how often does one have the chance to stay in a classic, historic house / neighborhood, but adorned with elegant Moroccan decor? The hospitality was amazing as well; from the French press with coffee ready to use to the daily-replenished supply of pastries and orange juice in the morning. This was an unique luxury experience to remember. On top of it, Elizabeth was very accommodating to our needs for an early check-in. Thank you Elizabeth!!
I LOVED THE MOROCCAN LUXURY SUITE and ELIZABETH + BILL!! I am also an Airbnb Host with two very busy, high-end Airbnb listing in Santa Cruz, CA. I work really hard to provide an amazing experience for my guests, so, when I was looking for the perfect place in Boston prior to a conference, I diligently searched 5-Star Listings, price no object. I wanted my trip to be super special. WOW! I hit the jackpot!! First of all, Elizabeth responded immediately and made me feel like an old friend coming to town. She sent me all kinds of good information, including a clip from a TV Show where her splendid apartment was featured. So exciting! When I arrived at an un-Godly hour, Fabulous Bill was there to greet me and to help me with my luggage up to the penthouse suite in this historic building. The apartment is simply divine, unique and beautiful. Vibrant colors, textures and special artistic touches were everywhere. There is a tranquil, beautifully appointed garden courtyard where we sat and had wine and cheeses in the warm evening breezes. Bliss! The neighborhood was outstanding! Located in the oldest part of Boston, the neighborhood is filled with beautiful, quaint brick homes lovingly adorned with colorful flower boxes. You pass right by the monument at Bunker Hill (I climbed the 294 steps to the top to take it spectacular 360 degree views). Historical Parks and Gas Lamp lined narrow streets lead you down to the water's edge to Old Ironside. The waterfront in Charlestown is really, really nice! We dined at Pier 6, Elizabeth's recommendation, with sweeping views of the harbor and the Boston Skyline. Cool breezes delighted us as we dined al fresco. Simply wonderful!! Elizabeth takes great pride in providing an outstanding experience -- every detail in place. Elizabeth and Bill are caring hosts and her suites are divine! I felt sad to leave and will definitely be back whenever I come to Boston! For those seeking a unique and wonderful experience right out of Old Boston, the Luxury Moroccan Suite cannot be beat!
Sometimes less is more so I will be brief and to the point: Elizabeth is a wonderful hostess, her suite is charming and delightful, and Charlestown is a great location if you want to be close to everything in Boston. This is a great find!
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 the most gracious host ever!! the place was absolutely amazing and peaceful, the neighborhood quiet and perfectly situated near everything in boston..definitely my home for any future visits to the boston area!

About the Host, Elizabeth
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.
