This was such a beautiful room/house to stay at. The summer breeze at night is so relaxing and calming. The neighborhood is a small town outside of Boston and it's very cute and so safe. The only thing is that it was a little hard to get into Boston and back so we would spend a whole day in Boston and get back at night (no time for naps). We tried to taxi a few times from the closest station to the house and to the airport, but it can get kind of pricey.
The room was very clean and looked like the picture. Everything went pretty smoothly.
Gerta was nothing short of a perfect host. She gave us some excellent recommendations on the first day, and didn't disturb us throughout the remainder of our trip. The room was EXACTLY as shown in the pictures, if not even more impressive. One of the most beautiful places I have stayed, without a doubt. Clean, tidy, and everything was ready for us to use from the moment we walked in. The commute into Boston was reasonable, and being close to the beach was worth the trouble. There really is nothing like waking up to the ocean. I would strongly recommend anyone staying in Boston stay here.
The room was very beautiful, private bath room, huge bed, everything was clean. We could park our car just one minute away for free. Winthrop is really close to the airport. Took us 20 minutes to get to Boston Downtown via Bus & Train. There is a really good seafood place close (15 min walk, 3 min drive). Gerta was very nice, and everything was easy and uncomplicated. We will be back for sure!
Nice room in a quiet neighbourhood. Gerta's house is great to stay at if you are looking for a quiet out of town retreat. We caught a bus and train during our stay that got us into Boston in about 30 minutes. It was a bit tricky coming back late at night from the station as buses are less regular, but you can get a taxi for about $7. Room was very comfortable, beware though it is street parking but neighbourhood appears very safe.
