Interaction with Guests
I am happy to provide tourist information about the joys of Boston.
This is a good neighborhood for someone going to the Convention Center. It's very close.
No smoking of any kind please, and I prefer guests who don't smoke at all. No pets please. Host has allergies. This building has families with children, so please be respectful and quiet in the halls and elevator. Bedroom is perfect for one person.
Laurie's apartment was in a great location for my conference at the convention center. The walk is easy, and there are lots of good places to eat and drink nearby. The guest room and bed were comfortable and everything I needed was there. The shower is amazing. Laurie is a delight to talk to but I also had a lot of quiet time, a perfect blend. Thank you so much Laurie. Hope we meet again someday !
Could not have asked for a better host during my short trip to Boston. Laurie was super communicative throughout the entire process and helped me find some local places to work and grab food. The loft condo was exactly as described, very nice, and conveniently located a block or two away from a major public transit stop. I really enjoyed the brief chat that I had with Laurie when I first arrived, and if it weren't for the fact that I needed to do some work, I probably could have continued talking for a long time. All in all, I would readily stay with Laurie again and highly recommend the condo to anyone else in the area.
I highly recommend this to anyone traveling alone for a few days in Boston. This location is an excellent place to stay. Laurie is kind, welcoming and a blast to talk to. The apartment is super clean and comfortable. In addition, it is in a fantastic location. It is a two minute walk from the central red line station, which can quickly get you downtown, to the airport (by switching to the silver line one stop away), and there are several bars and restaurants nearby open late if you need them. Can't ask for anything more!
This was my first time using AirBnB, and Lauri made it an absolutely wonderful one. The room was as described, the bed very comfortable. She was very kind and hospitable. Gave me a map to use to visit Boston which was helpful! I felt safe in the neighborhood and they are numerous dining options nearby. I'd definitely stay here again!
I like Laurie very much.She is kind,energetic,euthusiastic and helpful.Her apartment is very nice,clean and artistic.I especially enjoyed the bathroom and shower (website hidden) is spacious,better than nice hotels.Location is very convenienct,one metro stop to south station.
It is a little bit noisy although.I guess this happens to most apartments around convenienct (website hidden) didn't bother me for sleeping although.I guess because there is not much traffic during evening and early (website hidden) this is good enough
Laurie is the sweetest host ever. She is very prompt in answering queries and very responsive. It is a great place to stay and she has a beautiful home. She went all out to make me comfortable and the room is one of the best I have got in Airbnb. There are plenty of space in the bedroom and the bed is really comfy as well. and the bathroom is super gorgeous as well. She also left a lot of maps and pamphlets on the table for anyone who needs it as well.
Location is also a big plus. Her house is just steps away from the nearest subway station, which is a 1 stop away from South Station and the airport, and it is within walking distance (10 mins) to the BCC.
This really feels like a second home and I would not hesitate to stay with Laurie again.
Laurie was a great host. Really nice and welcoming and had several leaflets ready for me to start planning my trip around the city.
Directions were really clear so I had no problem in finding the house.
The room is cosy and warm and the bathroom is amazing!
If you are flexible with your times and can work around Laurie's schedule this is a great place to stay.
