As for my first Airbnb reservation, Nicole left a positive impression on my continuous use of the site. She was super nice and accommodating as my family and I (of 8) booked the place of couple of days; and since we booked last minute as we weren't sure whether our tickets were ready, she was able to arrange for someone to welcome us into the place and get us settled in within an hour since she wasn't available - but Nicole and her mom later came to welcome us - my Mom and Dad say hi!
Everything was professionally handled timely and when we had to stay an extra day, it was easily transacted (without hassle). The apartment was as beautiful as the pictures, clean, and well organized. There was breakfast available, tv, full kitchen, and wifi - she also has quite a lot of beds, so if you are a large group, highly recommend. The location is great - nearby library, park, grocery store, and public transportation.
If I'm ever back in the area, I'd book again!
Stayed only one short night but it was a nice house in a quiet neighborhood with restaurants nearby. Nicole is friendly and accommodating. Would stay again.
I had a wonderful stay in her apartment. The rooms were very nice, the lounge and kitchen were comfortable and everything was excellently cleaned. There is also a really nice garden area with chairs and table out the back.
The apartment is in a peaceful residential area with a big supermarket and bars/restaurants/ hair dresser/ right around the corner. I chose to walk the 20 mins to the Ashmont T, but it would also be possible to take the bus or Mattapan High Way Line to Ashmont T.
Everything was ready for me when I arrived and Nicole was open for all my questions and was open for additional requests, too.
I would have no problem in recommending this place or staying there again if I'm back in Boston.
Nicole was so accommodating as we booked a last minute stay (only a 4 hour notice) with her in Boston. She was warm and welcoming. She even went out and bought us new sheets! Her house is sweet and spacious. A great dinner recommendation by Nicole was so close to her home (within walking distance)- Steel and Rye- so good and delicious! We were there for a quick stay, but it was a cute little borough to explore had we had more time.
The home was beautiful and clean. You couldn't ask for a friendlier or more quiet neighborhood. Nicole was an extremely attentive hostess...and Nemo (her dog) was especially charming.
Nicole was a very kind host. It was nice talking to her and she was very helpful if there were some questions from my side.
The room was cute and comfortable. The bathroom was clean.
I had a very long trip and arrived at 11 in the evening. But Nicole was awake and waited to welcome me. Much appreciated.
If I visit Boston again I would ask her to host me again.
I have nothing but good things to say about my stay at Nicole’s. First of all, my trip to Boston was very last minute and I needed a place to stay urgently. I messaged a few hosts and hours later I still had not heard anything back. I messaged Nicole and without an hour she got back to me and I was booked. Nicole’s place was nice, clean, quiet and safe. I had the whole floor to myself while I was there. The neighborhood itself is nice; there is public transportation close by and a grocery store. As a host Nicole was great. She left some breakfast for me in the fridge, some snacks and there was coffee available. She was also helpful about the questions I had and was always a phone call away. I will definitely recommend staying here if you are in the Boston area and need a place to stay.
I had an overall good experience at my 2 weeks stay at Nicole's place.They are very family oriented ,nice,helpful and cooperative.
She tries to help in anyway she can .The secret is constant communication with her regarding any concerns and she will do her best to fix it.The transportation is relatively easy and the Shaw's supermarket is very close which will make your life easier.
I will recommend her to my friends.
I would like to write about my own overall VERY BAD experience.
I reserve a privet independent accommodation from this host for
One week and paid about $500,but from06/16 I found myself in a
Dormitory with 2 additional guests, which host desides accommodate in the same unit without any prior notification and my agreement.I also paid the cleaning fee, but every morning I cleaned by myself the kitchen, bath, toilet.On 06/19 I can't use the kitchen, because the host begings her kitchen's repair, also without any prior notification and my agreement.
I don't understand how Mrs.Maxey works as a sales associate at her Pondside Realty, but she doesn't know what it is the seller/buyer agreement, the customer privacy and many other basical things. This accommodation is very far from the city center, about 35 or 40 min ( the best case).
CONCLUSIONS: I can't recommend this host to anybody, which searches for a comfortable, safe and trust independent accommodation in Boston.
My experience with Ella was VERY BAD as well - Personally, I would not give
her a recommendation to stay in anyone’s home - I take the Airbnb
commitment very seriously - I did not want to cancel at the last minute due
to the kitchen renovations which was communicated to Ella which would
possibly leave Ella and her partner stranded - Minor kitchen renovations
were in progress and the contractor was able to finally start the job after
scheduling delays - in no way was the kitchen sink, stove or appliances
compromised as Ella cooked every day - There seemed to be a English
language barrier - I communicate with people from all over the world - The
miscommunication was in sharing the apartment - It explicitly states in the
listing that the apartment is a shared unit - Ella was surprised to find
out that it was a shared apartment - Upon arrival and during Ella’s stay
the entire apartment was cleaned - the kitchen, the bathroom, living room,
pantry, clean towels and linen placed in all rooms and Ella seemed very
pleased. My home is an easy commute into Downtown Boston, Cambridge and
neighboring towns. I welcome future guests - I take pride in my home - I
am always making improvements – I will continue to provide a comfortable
and peaceful environment. View the pictures as the pictures are valid and
were captured by an Airbnb professional photographer - Please read the
positive reviews and I look forward to accommodating your requests - All
the best - Nicole
Me and three friends stayed at Nicole's place back in June, and overall it was a good stay.
- Nicole and her friend Imara were AWESOME hosts; she was always willing to help us if we needed it and went out of her way at times to answer our questions (they were rarely at the house, but always a phone call away). Super friendly people.
- We were able to get the whole floor to ourselves at an awesome price, especially if you consider all the hotel/motel prices in the Boston and surrounding area. Especially, if you're a college student or working on a tight budget (like we were), this is the place.
- Friendly and quiet neighborhood with plenty of street parking and lots of places to eat and do grocery shopping, literally a few minutes walk.
- Overall, the place was clean and presentable (fresh linens, living area and bedrooms were clean).
- The kitchen was being renovated at the time we came and so that area was a bit messy.
- The washroom wasn't very clean; our group chose to wear sandals/slippers when taking a shower.
- They don't give you a spare key to the house, so you need to make arrangements with them when you're coming back home.
- If you don't have a car, the downtown core can be a far commute, as we were told that we would have to transfer three times or so to get to Fenway Park. We had a car, so it wasn't an issue; we were able to get to DT Boston within 15 minutes, even with some moderate traffic.
- The pictures of the place are professionally done.
- OVERALL, I would recommend this place, especially if you're tight on budget. If you're looking for something more fancy or romantic, this may not be suitable for your needs. Again, Nicole was such a warm and friendly host that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at her place.
