This was an excellent place to stay for the four days I was in Boston. I originally came for an orientation for my new job at Boston medical Center.
They were very flexible with my arrival time as I was on the road and hit some traffic. When I arrived, we graciously greeted me, and didn't feel very welcome and their home. They made sure the room was prepared. There was water waiting for me in the room, with a set of keys for the apartment, and an excellent list of instructions on how to get around in Boston and in the neighborhood. Additionally, they had Charlie cards or essentially bus and train passes that you could refill at a station to get around Boston.
They supplied me with clean sheets, towels, comfortable pillows, and my own bathroom for the duration of my stay. Regarding my room, the sheets were clean and comfortable. There were more than a couple pillows available to use. And the bed was large and comfortable, and could easily accommodate two people as needed.
Given that this was the beginning of July, they had a nice fan that was in the room waiting, in addition to having central air-conditioning. Throughout my stay, the air conditioning was nice and cool, and the fan was hardly needed at night. This is all in the middle of a very hot and muggy week in Boston.
Their location is right next to the T line as needed, however I drove in from New York and had ample parking and could go and come as I pleased without the need for searching for a parking spot.
Overall, I thought my stay with them was excellent. I would recommend that anyone from single, two couples, two friends traveling together utilize their availability. I think that they done an excellent job in providing a clean comfortable environment to enjoy your stay in Boston.
Nina and Mike were great hosts, very talkative and welcoming and full of ideas as to what we should do. Their house is in a lovely, quiet suburb of Boston which is only a 5 minute walk from the subway train that will take you into town in about 15-20 minutes. For those who fancy walking, it's also a reasonable 45 minutes to the Fenway area. All in all a great experience.
Nina and Mike were wonderful hosts, extremely welcoming and full of recommendations for restaurants. The house is clean and you are welcome to use their kitchen anytime (Mike had provided muffins for their guests which where delicious). A huge plus you get your own bathroom and there is public transportation right next to the house.
Regarding the room, they provided clean sheets, towels and pillows. The room in general is very light and the bed is large, great for two people.
Overall it was a wonderful experience to stay with Nina and Mike.
We were there for 7 days, and the apartment location is just great. It is literally outside the subway station, and it is really convenience to get to anywhere you want to. The apartment is just nice and the host is friendly! We are thankful to the host for letting us to use the kitchen to celebrate our new year eve!
Once again, Thank you, it was a really nice experience!
Nina's apartment was perfect for the two main reasons I was in town. I needed to attend a funeral in Manhattan (so easy to get to!) and was attending to work done in an apartment I am buying very close by. The A, C and G trains are RIGHT across the street. Atlantic Terminal is very close by which offers almost all the other trains, but you can also take the A or C to Fulton street in lower Manhattan and switch to the other trains there. The A is also very speedy for getting to either Port Authority Bus Terminal or Penn Station to catch Amtrak.
The gourmet grocery store right downstairs can not be beat! There is also a very handy coffee shop between the apartment building and the grocery. Don't forget to stroll along Atlantic Ave. where you will find some really unique boutiques, restaurants and antique stores. Really fun!
Once I move to my own apartment, I will be sure to recommend Nina's to any guests that want to visit but need their own space!
The apartment was spacious and impeccably clean, and the location was great for access to Brooklyn Heights. I would book this apartment again with no hesitation.
Our stay at Nina's and Mike's was great - I had asked for availability only five days before arrival and and although it was super short notice they made it possible without any problems. The apartment is beautiful with huge terrace and the location is great, everything exactly as described. Communication was fast and easy, which made us feel comfortable and in good hands. Thanks a lot!
Great location if you are looking to stay in Brooklyn. The A and C subway are literally across the street and an easy walk to many other lines if you are not familiar with all the connections. The immediate street that the building is on still needs development, but safety is not an issue. Yet you are a couple of blocks from tons of shopping and restaurants in the Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights area. Would say the location is terrific. The apartment is very spacious although a little more spartan than some homes I have stayed in. Nevertheless that's a small comment given the bed is terrific and the overall living space is large with a huge outdoor patio if you want to spend time in the apartment. The one downside that could use correction is that there is no drawer space or significant closet space to hang up or put away clothing if you will be there for any significant length of time. Basically lived out of my bag with clothing on the couch much of the time. Otherwise I think this apt gives good value and you should definitely be comfortable and clean living here and I can easily be comfortable recommending Nina's apt.
Beautiful, sunny apartment exactly as described. Could not be more convenient to the subway, and the terrace is a huge bonus. Thank you!
Awesome location and hosts. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. The hosts were very responsive and flexible! Would definitely stay here again!
Thanks Nina & Mike!
Nina and her guest were great to have. Would love to host them again
Great guests. Nina was very respectful, clean and great to converse with. Def will look you up in Boston and when you return to Cayman please look us up.
Nina was a wonderful person, would be my pleasure to have her back again.
Nina was a wonderful guest! She left the home in perfect condition, and I would highly recommend her to any Airbnb host.
Great, easy going guest. I would gladly host her again and recommend her to other hosts.
Nina's husband was staying at my place. He is very friendly and respectufl. I'm really glad that they both belong to the Airbnb community and they are welcome to come back to my place anytime :)
Nina's awesome. This was the second time we had her over and we'd have her again anytime. Such a nice, fun, tidy guest that anyone should enjoy hosting!
Nina's awesome, we've really enjoyed having her, and she actually booked further to stay on, and we're thrilled to continue to enjoy her company!
I can see why she'd make an easy host. :)
Micha, my husband, and I have known Nina and Mike for years! Nina and I went to college together and have stayed in close touch over the years. They are a wonderful couple--very reliable, helpful, and fun. They are so neat and organized--together and individually! They stayed at our home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for part of their honeymoon and we really had a nice time exploring the city and spending time at home together. Highly recommended!
I have known Mike for over 10 years now. He makes a perfect couple with Nina. They are smart and just great people, so have no doubt that they are good hosts. Their apartment in New York is amazing! The kitchen is very nice and spacious enough to cook (basically, a luxury in NYC apartments), the living room has plenty of light and is also big, it has a nice bathroom and pretty big bedroom too... But the best may be the amazing private terrace! The building is very new, has security and a gym too. The only thing missing is a pool! The surroundings have a few restaurants including the famous Junior's Restaurant, which has the best cheesecake in NYC! And then, enough subway lines to be in the heart of Manhattan! Highly recommend their apartment
