  • Elizabeth was an excellent host! Her place is very unique and cozy. We enjoyed some of the special touches she provided like a bottle of wine and refrigerator stocked with breakfast items along with a real wood burning fireplace. This was our first trip to the Charlestown area of Boston and we thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood.

  • I had the delightful experience of staying in both suites that Elizabeth offers on airbnb and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone visiting Boston. Every detail was perfectly attended too, from fresh flowers and wine, to firewood ready to light. Its easy to see that Elizabeth loves what she does and has filled her elegant home with a romantic blend of antiques from travels near and far. What are you waiting for? Surprise your sweetheart with a home away from home weekend in one of America's most historic neighborhoods!

  • It was fantastic experience to stay in Elizabeth's suite. Elizabeth is a very kind and thoughtful lady who provided the completed travel reference docs for us in advance and as well as the health breakfast when we arrived. I do appreciate of her kindness and would like to recommend Elizabeth's amazing & comfortable suite to the friends who has the plan to Boston.

  • The apartment is fantastic. Incredibly well furnished. Large and spacious. Liz and bill go the extra mile to make sure we are accommodated and have everything we need. A great breakfast is provided. Wine on arrival. Coffee and juice etc. couldn't have asked for a better place in Boston. Easy access to the train line. Walking distance to the city as well. It is only a few minutes walk to bunker hill which is at the start of the freedom trail (must do when in Boston). Cannot recommend this place enough. Better than staying at a hotel.

  • Elizabeth and Bill have created a luxurious and homey oasis at Salem Street Court. The suite was gorgeous and comfortable, complete with a fireplace, beautiful decor, and every amenity you could want - even a small white noise machine! (Perfect for a restless sleeper like myself.) Elizabeth and Bill are also incredibly attentive to your needs, providing a lovely variety of yogurts, breakfast pastry and bottled water (amongst other goodies). Thank you again for a wonderful weekend escape!

  • Elizabeth's rental is matching its description:elegant, cozy, quiet, clean, conveniently located with an access to the subway and within walking distance of many touristic attractions.
    We enjoyed the light breakfast neatly stored in the fridge every morning and some personal touch earn the place top ratings from my husband and me!

  • Elizabeth was more than accommodating. She was great. The place was great. We had a full trip planned but if I got the opportunity to go back I would definitely plan some time to hang out in the room. The book selection was amazing, and the patio was great.

  • Our stay with Elizabeth at Salem Street Court was all that one would wish for and much more. Elizabeth and Bill were gracious and generous hosts...dietary needs were met...the accommodation ever so comfortable...the decor exquisite! We walked miles and miles exploring various routes to numerous destinations and found the location in Charlestown to be perfect...historically interesting, central and yet quiet. Do not think twice about making a reservation at this location!

  • Thanks again!!! We enjoyed it so much, the stay in your beautiful and wonderful house! Hope to come again... :-)

  • Elizabeth's apartment was the perfect place to stay in Boston. The decor of the place is fantastic and totally different than anywhere else we have stayed. The bathroom is fantastic! The bed... the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever experienced. The apartment was close to the T (5-minute walk) and there was a Whole Foods and CVS two blocks away. Staying in Charlestown was so much better than staying in busy downtown Boston and the T makes it simple to get anywhere in the city anyway. We were given orange juice and bagels/pastries every morning by the wonderful B&B manager, Margaret, who checked on us frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. Both Elizabeth and Margaret were easily accessible via text/phone throughout the duration of our stay. Although we did not meet Elizabeth (she was out of town), we did have the chance to chat with Margaret as we were leaving and she was delightful! We will definitely be back the next time we're in 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.
