Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Joseph's home is like your favorite swimming hole that you don't want anyone to find out about and spoil it, but you want to tell everyone about it because it's so great. Joseph is all about the details. His apartment is welcoming with every kindness thought of - toiletries, staple food items, wonderful linens. The property is so gorgeous and open, you will be tempted not to leave. As for Joseph himself, he anticipates when you will need him for anything and makes you comfortable at his home from the moment you arrive. He is very clear about the airbnb stay, which makes it so easy to enjoy!

  • Another great stay with Joseph and Susan. Everything is ship shape and hosts are very responsive. This is a uniquely beautiful location. Listen to owls at night, frogs in the evening and bird songs in the morning. Just the sounds of nature. Walk on quiet country roads, but short drive, or 2/3-mile walk...which we town. Even in the rain-3 days!-it's lovely. Fun selection of videos for nightly entertainment. Hard to find a better airbnb experience in the Northeast!

    June 2014
  • We stay at Joseph's house for 3 nights. We had very comfortable experience there!!! It is (email hidden) for holidays! The scenery are just like a shangrila! We will stay there again next time!!!!

    May 2014
  • Nice home in the country - easy to let myself in and out. Well stocked fridge with snacks and drinks - much thanks Joseph!

  • Joe and Susan rent a warm and cozy apartment attached to their home, which is perched on the side of gentle valley half-way between Greenfield and Shelburne Falls. Every detail of house and its setting is carefully thought out -- just what you would expect from an architect building a place for himself and his family. Had a lovely four-day stay. Would happily do it again.

    March 2014
  • We reserved Joseph's home for our son and daughter-in-law for Christmas visit, after my husband and I had stayed here in November. As nice as ever for them. They loved the New England scenery surrounding the home and enjoyed their visit as much as we did ours. Would definitely recommend to any couple, or single, visiting the Pioneer Valley area.

  • Would be hard to find a more comfortable place to stay in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts. This is a very cozy, warm and well-equipped mother-in-law apartment. It is on a beautiful rural road but yet has easy access to I-91 and Greenfield. The setting is really beautiful. Would be nice to just walk, jog or bike along the country roads. Apartment has a very nice small kitchen, wonderful king bed and nice bathroom. Really couldn't be better!

    November 2013
  • We could not have been more pleased with our stay. Both the property itself and our hosts were terrific. That the apartment and the land on which it is situated are gorgeous should be clear from photographs; they do not lie! And above and beyond aesthetics, the Matteis' hospitality was abundant and thoughtful but always unobtrusive, from the provision of basic foodstuffs to suggestions for things to do. We certainly hope to be back soon.

    October 2013
  • We had a great stay at Josep's apartment. The apartment was comfortable, cozy and clean. Joseph was incredibly kind and accommodating. He went above and beyond providing even some breakfast foods/ toiletries. If we are every in the area we will surely stay there again.

    October 2013
  • Joseph and Susan are wonderful hosts. We had a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing property with us--especially the gazebo!

Hi! I'm an architect and my office is in our home. I have primarily worked in Western New England but during my early career I designed several building in Kansas and Colorado. My wife Susan and I live in this rural area of Western Massachusetts, close to Rt 91, with easy access to all that Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire have to offer. I have my own practice and Susan works in development (email hidden). We have an In-law apartment as a part of our home that has been unused, so we decided to try out Airbnb. We have 7 1/2 acres of land, mostly open. Our home has a panoramic view, from above a wet meadow, looking down on a beaver pond, in our "little" Shingle Valley. At night, when the lights are off, it's dark. You can actually see the stars here! Originally our property was part of a larger family farm.
