Elizabeth greeted me, via phone, with warmth and incredible kindness. The place was beautiful, stocked with wonderful amenities, and so comfortable. I so appreciate finding this awesome place, and will be back for sure. It was much better than we expected.
Elizabthe is the Perfect host. Helpful and discreet at the same time. The appartment is fantastic, the neighborhood is nice with perfect walking distance (20 min) to downtown/habour area Boston. We loved it, and give Elizabeth our best recomendation
Wonderful place to relax - in Boston for work, and great to come back to a real home, not a hotel. Everything was as promised and pictured. The bed was heavenly. Thank you, Elizabeth.
Elegance at Salem Street more than surpassed our expectations. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and Elizabeth was the perfect host. She got the balance perfect between catering for our needs and letting us enjoy our privacy. The neighbourhood turned out to be an oasis in a busy city and after long sightseeing days we were perfectly happy to dine in the many fine restaurants we found in Charlestown. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone planning a visit to Boston.
We had a wonderful stay in Boston at Elizabeth's loft. The apartment is very stylish furnished. We loved to take our breakfasts on the balcony watching the tomatoes and peppers growing on the rooftop. Most of all we enjoyed the very comfortable bed! Elizabeth provided us with all information needed in advance so that everything went well. We can fully recommend this place. Thank you! Stephanie & Harald
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!

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.
