When I first decided to use Airbnb I wasn't sure what I was getting into. My husband (a bonafide hotel lover) thought I was crazy. But after just one day at Julee's I knew I had made the right choice. The room was just what I needed,a little small but there was plenty of space to put things away easily. Julee was the perfect hostess who gave me all the privacy I needed yet was always available to answer questions or just sit and chat over a cup of coffee. I felt more like I was visiting a good friend than just renting a room .The kitchen,living room , and back yard were all made available to me and Julee made me feel very comfortable using them all. Some of the most enjoyable times were spent playing with her adorable (and so friendly) dog Sammy. What a cutie and so well behaved!! Whenever I come back to the area I hope to come back to stay with my 2 new friends !! Thank you so much Julee and Sammy for everything!!!
I was well-received by Julee and little Sammy and she was not only a great host, but a very nice person to chat with and share some moments ! Her place is very cozy and feels just like home, in a calm neighborhood close to the center of Newton and transports to Boston.
Julie went above and beyond in making me feel welcome especially in the aftermath of a snowstorm.
Julee made me feel welcome by showing me into her very clean home herself. She met me at the door, let me in, and introduced me to her wonderful dog Sammy. She showed me my room, the bathroom, and offered toiletries that I could use (so I didn't have to pack liquids). She made space in a cupboard for me and in the fridge. The neighborhood is very quiet in Newtonville. The simple but firm and wonderfully made with flannel sheets, so comforting on a cold Boston night. In addition I would say there is a peaceful vibe in this house.
Great location in Newton. Julee has a very friendly dog, Sammi. Syncing up with Julee was a bit difficult in the beginning, but she ended up being very flexible.
Staying with Julee was an absolute delight. She made feel me at home the entire time. Her dog Sammie is the cutest. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. If you are looking for a warm and friendly place to stay in the Boston area, I highly recommend staying at Julee's.
Julee and Om-Sweet-Om get my highest recommendation. Julee is a warm and welcoming host, a great communicator, and respectful of guest needs. Her apartment is lovely, comfortable, spotless, and in a great location - beautiful neighborhood, close to transportation, shopping, and fun. Sammy the dog is a fabu, 4 legged welcoming committee. The bed is so comfortable. I've stayed twice and loved it both times.
