We live on a quiet, tree lined road in a residential neighborhood. There are a variety of restaurants and boutique stores within walking distance in our safe, small, quaint seaside community.

Jez and Ken.
Although we only stayed a short time with Jez and Ken, we couldn't have been made feel more welcome. Even before we arrived we were invited to attend the Winthrop Strawberry Festival with them, but due to the short overnight stay we were unable to go. Their home is outstanding, and is by far the BEST air bnb that we have stayed in during our 4 weeks in the USA. Everything was perfect! Be assured, if you choose to stay with Jez and Ken, you will not be disappointed. Our room was so comfortable, the bed, the gowns, the linen, the chocolates on our bed! This is the cleanest bnb I have ever stayed in. The fridge was stocked with anything that we needed. We were given advice on where to eat, and had the best meal that we had eaten during our previous week in Boston. As we departed, we stopped for coffee and danish pastries at Adriannes, and would recommend this experience too ! We give this airbnb our Highest Recommendation. We would love to come and stay again, if we ever return to Boston. Winthrop is a top spot! Thank you Jez and Ken.
Two super awesome guys who really care about their guest's happiness. Our room was super clean and welcoming, and they provided towels and shampoo and pretty much anything else you would need. For us it was way better than staying in a hotel because it just felt like home away from home. Ken was attentive to our every need and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They 100% deserve their super host rating.
This place is a real gem. The hosts are as welcoming and accommodating as anyone could hope they would be. The house is very nice, the neighborhood is attractive and safe (particularly given the proximity to Logan), and guests are treated to staying on a peninsula with water in every direction. But the key ingredient is that Jez and Ken really care about their home and sharing it with travelers. And it shows. They are welcoming, helpful, accommodating and are interesting people to get to know. Fresh seafood near the house. Lovely backyard and garden, lovingly attended, like their guests.
Our stay was short, but oh so welcoming. Since our stay was so short we only got the pleasure of meeting Jez. We arrived late afternoon to drop our stuff, start a load of laundry, and then we had to head back into Boston for a dinner (the train station is so close and a quick ride into downtown Boston). We returned later than we had expected and were exhausted dreading our 5 am flight out in the morning. To our pleasant surprise Jez had kindly dried and folded our laundry- making it so much easier to pack up and get ready for the morning.
Jez went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The house is beautiful and the bed was oh so comfy. Our only complaint is that our stay was so short less than 12 hours, but hopefully we will make it back in the future.
THANKS for everything!
This was the first Air BnB experience for both my girlfriend and I and we could not have possibly been more impressed. Jez and Ken were impeccable hosts; extremely friendly, extremely accommodating and went more than out of their way to make their beautiful home feel like our home as well.
If you're looking for a place to stay anywhere near Boston -- the location itself was extremely convenient as well -- I cannot recommend Jez and Ken enough. You'll be more than glad you stayed with them.
