Staying at Ivan's was amazing. The house itself was fantastic, with every amenity readily available. Appreciated the hot tub and the fireplace, especially since we stayed here in the winter on a particularly frosty weekend. It was hard to motivate ourselves to leave the house to explore the area since it was so well equipped and lovely inside our little home. The views were unparalleled. I will be recommending this to anyone I know who will be in the area - and will definitely be finding some time to go back myself! The best AirBNB experience that I've had - book with Ivan and you really won't regret it. He is kind, professional, accessible (but respects your privacy), and overall, a five star host.
This house is absolutely amazing. It's a 15 minute walk from the train station with gorgeous views of both the water, and in the distance, Boston. Ivan made sure the hot tub was ready when we arrived and was nice enough to let us extend our checkout time. I couldn't recommend this more to a couple looking for a place to get away for a weekend from Boston!
I appreciate Ivan's flexibility and last minute booking, but did need to change my plans the day of and hoped for similar flexibility in terms of a credit or refund. The nightly cost was a lot to basically forfeit, but was ultimately my decision...
I do hope to actually stay at some point, because the property looks lovely!
Wir haben wunderbare Tage in Ivans Haus verbracht. Das Haus mit seiner wunderbaren Aussicht, gemütlichen Einrichtung, komfortablen Küche, phantastischen Terrassen und tollen Lage ist noch schöner als die Anzeige erwarten lässt. Falls wir nochmals in diese Gegend kommen, werden wir sicher versuchen wieder hier zu wohnen.
Morgens aufwachen mit dem Blick aufs Meer ist einfach super!
There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Ivan's place is! Even better than the pictures, this home is amazing. From the picturesque uninterrupted water views to Ivan's beautiful home, our stay in Swampscott was such a highlight. The attention to detail in this luxurious home is superb. It is very clean fully self contained home with every imaginable convenience. The neighbourhood itself is very charming & very quiet and offers some wonderful dining. Transport into & out of Boston city was a breeze with the bus/train system. Ivan's response time with our communications was excellent. We will definitely be coming back. If you are visiting Boston, you must stay here!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Ivan's home - the views were spectacular! The hot tub was very relaxing and we also had fun going thru his CD collection. Just like all the other reviewers, we had a fantastic time at Ivan's place - and he was very nice when we met him as we left. We did want to mention that the upstairs bed is very firm which is not our preference...but hopefully the vaulted ceiling and calming ocean sounds will completely distract you. It was a perfect spot for our mini-moon!
I cannot recommend Ivan's place enough! I agree with prior reviewers that the pictures don't do it justice! The house is warm and inviting, and the views are incredible! We enjoyed the fireplace and hot tubs. What a great place for my wife and I's Baby Moon! Swampscott and the surrounding communities are beautiful to explore. Ivan was incredibly responsive and very helpful. I highly recommend Ivan's and we have already talked about how we would like to return ourselves sometime!
We all use Airbnb the same way, we look for places we think will enrich our experience and hope that the images/reviews will guide us in the right direction with a minimum degree of hyperbole. Well in this place, this host you can be safe in the knowledge that the only surprise you will get is that the place will surpass your expectations. The house is warm spacious, and has a wonderful homely character which makes Ivan's place a hidden gem in every sense. The views are breathtaking, the bed is so comfortable you will never look at your own in the same way again! The neighborhood is quiet and friendly with the beach within easy walking distance.. (The whole food market is a must by the way.. incredible supermarket, about 1km away)..Ivan has a tremendous CD collection available for guests to listen to at their leisure, but be careful, if you get too intrigued by it you may forget to leave the house! The hospitality shown to us was a joy to behold and this made for a truly memorable stay, so I can say with some confidence that we will be returning.. Thanks Ivan!
Ivan's house was great! My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. The house is beautiful, I loved the hot tub looking out at the ocean, the bedroom had a beautiful view of the ocean, the upstairs bathroom was great. We were only here for one day, but I really wish we could have stayed for more! We hope to return this summer and stay for a few days (:
