Guest Access

You also have access to a peaceful garden and a large yard, you can sit or lounge on the big sun deck located on the first floor overlooking the garden where we often have breakfast and supper in the summer months.

Interaction with Guests

Two friendly indoor cats (Winston and Oliver) have access to the home and may want to greet you, or sit on your lap should you decide to relax in the living room, dining room or kitchen.

The Neighborhood

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.

Winthrop is surrounded by clean, safe, public beaches. The nearest beach (Donovan's beach) is a 2 minute walk and has views of the beautiful Boston skyline and Logan airport.

We are a great Boston Airport location with very easy access to Downtown. We are 2.7 miles from Boston Logan International Airport.

Getting around

We are exactly 1 mile from the nearest train stop (Orient Heights, Blue line station) which is an easy 15-20 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride. Boston is a 10 minute train ride and Logan Airport is 7 minutes away.

Winthrop also has a great ferry service that runs May thru October. We are 1.7 miles from the Winthrop landing ferry terminal that will take you to Rowes wharf on Atlantic Avenue, Boston's waterfront, very popular in summer months. The ferry is an excellent way to experience Boston from the harbor.

We strive for excellence for all our guests and the majority of the time are able to collect you from the airport and drop you off, pending your arrival time and our own schedules.

Other Things to Note

We are flexible and try to accommodate special requests and provide assistance whenever possible.

We are a friendly couple that run a clean, relaxed home.
Come visit, we'd love to have you stay.

  • We had a great experience. Ken was away and Jez was a charming and intuitive host. Their home is lovely, our room was comfortable and the location was perfect!

  • I was a little apprehensive for my first airbnb experience.... Staying in a private home of people I'd never met was worrisome. Well I could not have had a more perfect first experience! From initial text correspondence onward, Jez and Ken were exemplary hosts. Their home is beautiful. Very well appointed. They think of everything! (A welcome cookie!!). Within minutes of my arrival I felt like I was a guest in the home of friends I had known for years. They accommodated my late arrival.... Picked me up at the airport and dropped me off at the T. I visit Boston annually and I will always check availability here before I stay anywhere else.

  • Super hosts, very hospitable and flexible, I'd recommend them to anybody.

  • We spent a few nights with Ken and Jez last week and honestly, we were delighted with their generosity and friendliness. On our first day were picked up by Ken's mother as the guys were unavailable to do so (we would have been quite happy to make our own way!) and Shirley was very gracious and practical. In fact, we did our own washing and went out leaving it in the drier to come back to find it neatly folded and placed on our bed! Thank you, Shirley! The guys also zipped us down to the local railway station a couple of times inside of taking the local bus.
    Their house is a welcome, beautifully cared for and comfortable home, too. Winston and Oliver are the resident cats and we loved having them around. We were provided with continental type breakfasts and genereous snacks as well. We are a mature couple so appreciated their care. If we return to Boston we will definitely stay with Ken and Jez.

  • What an amazing find, just a few minutes from Downtown Boston. After a long week of travel, up and down the New England coast, I needed a place close to town. The property was exactly as described, even more welcoming if that is possible. The bedroom, bathroom and common areas are very tastefully decorated. Ken was a fantastic host and I cannot thank him enough for making me feel at home and including me in a few hours of incredibly fun conversation with his family and friends. A special thank you to his mother who made my night...what a fun, kind woman. On my return to the area, I will be staying here once again.

  • Ken was a considerate, gracious host--picking me up at the airport in the evening and even driving me to my next stop the following morning. His home is spacious, well-appointed and inviting. My room was large, spotless and quite comfortable. I would recommend his home unconditionally to airbnb guests.

  • Our stay with Jez and Ken was fantastic. They were both SO kind and eager to help us with all our travelling needs. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with them and found them to be perfect hosts. We stayed with them at the end of a three week trip, so we were a bit tired and they seemed to know what we needed and we felt pampered. Ken works in the travel industry and knows exactly how to help his guests.... he even took us and our mound of luggage to the airport, which was just great. Our accomadations were fantastic, actually, even nicer than the photo's, so I highly recommend their home to others. Thanks so much Ken and Jez for everything - it was a real pleasure to meet you.

  • We were only here for one night, but Ken and Jez made us feel right at home from the moment we were picked up at the airport. The welcoming committee also included Oliver and Winston, two lovely cats. The bed was comfortable, the amenities were plentiful and coffee on the deck in the morning was a great way to start the day.

  • Our first experience with Airbnb was quite fine!! Although we missed Ken, and Jez was only around briefly....."Mom" Shirley greeted us, and basically gave us the "run" of the house!!

    Winthrop is a very cost-effective way to see Boston. The city was very easily accessed by the MBTA Blue Line, only about a mile drive or 20 minute walk from the house. Although Winthrop is literally at the end of the runway of Boston Logan, the airplane noise isn't at all overwhelming, as we thought that it might be!!

    The town is very charming. We tried the restaurant at the Winthrop Arms Hotel, and Belle Isle Seafood.......two different styles, for sure, but both quite good!!

    Being cat lovers, we also enjoyed Winston and Oliver!

    Should we ever find our way back there again, we would recommend Jez and Ken's home without hesitation!!

  • Thanks to our wonderful hosts Jez, Ken and Shirley, our last stop on our trip through the US proved to be unforgettable! We enjoyedBoston, especially the surrounding countryside very much. Our Airbnbhome was located on the outskirts (downtown easily accessible via public transportation) in a lovely neighborhood with beautiful houses. Our accomodation was very pretty too, with a beautiful garden! The ambience was very tasteful and everything was provided for, such as city maps and sightseeing recommendations. The huge balcony was our chill-out area for the night where we spent wondrful evenings with our hosts and their friends.
    In short: We will come back to Massachusetts and definitely stay with Jez, Ken and Shirley again, whose kindness and effort to make our stay as pleasent as possible were outstanding!
    With best regards from Germany
