We never actually met our hosts because they left for an outstation trip before we arrived, but we feel like we know them from the wonderful stay we had at their warm home. The location was just right for our destination of Cambridge, and the home was a complete delight..... A treasure trove of books, games and of course the adorable cat Charlie- all of whom provided great company to my son aged 6. Our hosts were most gracious and kind, trusting us with free rein over their abode and we were touched and of course most careful with not abusing that trust.
Thank you Alexandra and Christopher for a great stay! We hope to be back someday soon.
Alexander's home was a wonderful home. It was a family friendly home. We would consider returning.
One bedroom was quite small in that it didnt really have places to hang clothes and get things out of the way. Mostly we just put things on the bed. This is probably because we had come to Boston for a longer stay so we had more stuff.
The tub and shower were great!
I would definitely leave bus and train schedules for guests. Also close by restaurants, grocery stores, etc.
This was my first time using Airbnb and what a wonderful introduction to the comfort and graciousness available through this cite! Alexandra and her husband Christophe were wonderful hosts and made my daughter and I feel very comfortable and at home. The listing was right on and the room was as welcoming and spacious as pictured. The bed was also extremely comfortable! A special treat was Alexandra's attention to so many thoughtful details like having hot apple cider waiting for us when we arrived, providing pampering bath products, serving great coffee to get you going in the morning and even having a bowl in our room with apples, nuts and chocolate! It was all very special and we also just loved their cat... truly one of the sweetest and friendliest ones I have ever met. All out best to you both!
I had a weird schedule, so I never actually met Alexandra, but she and Christophe (whom I did meet) still made me feel very welcome in their home. She even left out some goodies for my breakfast (I had to leave at 6AM :-o).
What a beautiful home it is! Directions for how to get into the house were clear and easy to follow. When I pulled into the driveway, their cat was waiting on the other side of the gate to meet me and lead me to the back door. The garden is a perfect little gem, and the house is indeed interesting and beautifully appointed. The cat is also an excellent ambassador, and was willing to accept all the petting I would give!
My room was large, bright, and comfy, and felt very private. I did leave the door cracked, as I have never known a cat that didn't see a closed door as a challenge, and he was indeed there to greet me at 5:30 in the morning (my cat died a few years ago, and I have missed the purring-in-the-ear alarm clock...it was nice to get a bit of that again).
Thanks for the wonderful stay!
Alexandra was so kind and welcoming. I had to book at the last minute, but she arranged to let me in before she even got home. She made me dinner and breakfast in the morning, and we had great conversations at both. Awesome.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful and cozy home. Alexandra and Christophe graciously welcomed our family, including our 17-month-old son and two cats. They were laid-back and trusting, leaving their home to us when they were away. When we arrived, we were greeted by a long handwritten note from Alexandra, complete with illustrations. :) It was a warm and welcoming touch. I'd recommend this accommodation to anyone, especially those looking to stay in a peaceful place in close proximity to the city.
I had a great time staying with Alexandra and her busband. She is a great host and she has the cutest cat and dog!
Alexandra and her family were awesome hosts. The location is amazing and the accommodations were perfect.
Thank Sheldon family!
We had an amazing time at Alexandra's place- the house was awesome and super cosy. The neighborhood was also really quiet and nice, with some nice restaurants and bakeries around. We also had a supermarket around the corner (less than 3 mins walking) and the bus station just at the end of the street- it takes less than 10 minutes to arrive to Harvard Square Station by taking the 73 bus line.
I would highly recommend this place to future Boston tourists.
Alexandra and Christophe were excellent hosts, friendly and welcoming people and accommodating to me as a guest. I was in town for work and found the location to be very convenient for work (Belmont), non-work (Cambridge and elsewhere), groceries, restaurants. The house itself is a pleasure to be in, very home-y with an abundance of artwork. Would definitely return in the future.
What a fantastic guest!! Alexandra and her family were wonderful to have for the thanksgiving holidays. She was respectful of our property and left the cottage immaculately clean. She is more then welcome to come stay with us any time she pleases. Fantastic Guest!
