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.
Gerta's house is exactly the same as in the photos, very beautiful and clean. It also has a great location, easy to get to most part of Boston by train and easy to find. The beach is literally two-minute walk away but when we got there it was blocked by ice( we blame only the weather on this:( Gerta is a very helpful host, from giving us directions to suggesting us walking through the Freedom Trail for our one-day tour in Boston, which we did and turned out to be one of our best memories about this city. We would defiantly revisit this house if we had chance!
Staying at Gerta's was very easy and convenient. The house is located in a cute town, not too far from downtown Boston, and the parking is free! Gerta made it very easy to access the home and everything we needed was very accessible. The room and bathroom were large and clean. Would recommend!
