No pets, no smoking. Be advised the only access to the house is by stairs - it's well worth it ☺
Our stay at Ivan's apartment was lovely—the perfect romantic getaway for a night! The apartment was so cute, and Ivan left us juice, muffins, and bananas. Honestly, this is somewhere I would want to live in the future. We didn't get a chance to use many of the amenities, but his music collection was very impressive. We just wish that we had come at a warmer time so that we could have made use of the outdoor hot tub and gone down to the beach!
Like many other reviewers said, the pictures truly do not do the house justice - it was cozy and wonderfully decorated, and has everything you'd need for an idyllic getaway. Swampscott is a very quaint and quiet town, and so is really quite a nice break for the city-dweller. Waking up to a view of the sea was quite a treat.
There are a few shops and restaurants within walking distance, but Boston is really just half an hour away on the MBTA. There is a jacuzzi in the bathroom and a hot tub on the balcony, both of which were wonderful especially at this time of the year. The kitchen also had all the necessary utensils, pots, pans, and even had some baking tools (loaf pan, measuring cups, muffin tin, etc), and we managed to get some cooking done.
Ivan's house that gives you the experience of a secluded getaway without actually being too far-out or inconvenient to get to. Would highly recommend!
Ivan was a fantastic host! He responded within minutes to any of our questions. Ivan's home is even better than described. It's spacious, clean, and the views are absolutely breathtaking! I highly recommend making use of the hot tub. The views of the ocean from it are spectacular.
Thank you Ivan for such a memorable week!
Ivan is an excellent host who made sure our stay was comfortable and convenient. He replied to my inquiries often within the hour of my sending them. His house is absolutely beautiful and the ideal location for those looking to get out of Boston for a relaxing weekend and for someone trying to visit the city with the comforts of home for a fantastic value. We enjoyed listening to the extensive music collection and sitting in the hot tub overlooking the ocean.
This home is beautiful and the views are amazing! (The pictures do this home no justice). Ivan was quick to respond and just a call away when we needed him. This was the perfect get away for couples who want/need some peace and quiet! We hope to come back during the warmer seasons.
This house is a dream. "Secluded and romantic" is the perfect description. Ivan is extremely helpful and welcoming and the space itself is relaxing and warm. The views are inspiring. I would stay here again and again. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is.
Ivan's beautiful house is absolutely perfect! Plenty of information regarding the stay was provided beforehand and the space was exactly as described. The location could not be better - with plenty of local shops/restaurants plus convenience/liquor stores within walking distance. My girlfriend and I were looking for a relaxing getaway, and the hot tub and cozy master bedroom were the perfect touches. We will definitely be back again! Thanks Ivan :)
