This is a quaint, cozy house with a great view of the ocean. Danielle and her roommates are very easy going and nice to talk to, and you really feel like just another friend in the mix while you're staying with them. They're all respectful of each other's privacy, and I didn't have any problems during my stay, which lasted a full month.
Danielle is a very nice woman, and I think she maybe lets some of the negative feedback she's received in the past get to her too much in her description of this room. Contrary to what she says, it actually IS a nice place to stay. That said, this is not an actual bed and breakfast, and shouldn't be confused with one. I went in expecting to be treated like any other roommate, and I was happy with my stay. If you're going in expecting to be served breakfast or have a maid clean your room every day, then you probably are better off booking a room at an actual bed and breakfast.
One thing of note is that you probably should have a car if you're planning to stay here for an extended period of time. I made it alright without one during my stay, but making the walk to the nearest grocery s the bus arrives also be able to plan your trips according to tore was a bit of a hassle for me. The walk felt to me to be about a quarter mile, although I haven't looked that distance up at all to verify it. Danielle's house is right across the street from a bus stop, so you may also be able to time your trips according to the bus' schedule. I wasn't able to do that for going to the grocery store because I was working most days, and the bus runs less frequently at night and on weekends. But someone who isn't working or is only staying for a few days may have an easier time of it.
Overall, a pleasant stay. Would recommend.
Danielle was very helpful and friendly and accommodating to my needs. I would book with her again!
this place is absolutely fabulous. from the time I arrived until the day I left I felt I was home. I am sure you want to know the details so here goes. Location, location, location. from your bedroom room with five windows you get the most stunning sunrises ever. i swear I have 5000 of the same pictures but it literally looks like the best you've ever seen everyday. i am a firm believer in a good start to the day is key to a great day. every morning when you wake up on the very comfortable bed and look out that window, you are wowed.
The room is perfect. I believe they say it is a queen but I think it's a king. the room has a full size dresser and mirror, a clothing rack, a couple night stands and full use of the house. They also have a nice front porch with covered seating to just hang out and yes you can see the ocean from there.The bathroom is located right up the hall from your room (btw the housekeeper cleans it), downstairs has a dining room, television room, a sitting area and a nice kitchen with full access during your stay. If you need public transportation it is just under a mile walk to the Orient Heights Blue Line stop and a cab anywhere in Winthrop is $5. Listen this place is legit, I am pretty picky and had an absolutely outstanding experience. Danielle and her roommates are awesome. Remember this is not a hotel. it is an awesome place with the BEST LOCATION. I had such an amazing stay I actually left to get my own apartment up the street. A++++++++++++++++++++++++++
My room was very large with a great view. It was easy to find the place and it is easy to come and go. Danielle was very helpful and she even gave me a ride into town.
Danielle made it easy for us to enter and leave the listing which was nice since we got in quite late. She left a list with transportation information, restaurants nearby, etc. The bus runs quite frequently and is right across the street. It was easy to take the bus to the metro and get into the city.
Good value for money I would say.
- great neighborhood! I loved the Victorian houses with all those nice porches. And it is very close to the bay, so some mornings we'd have breakfast on a bench near the water!
- relaxed and flexible atmosphere in the house, host and one of the other tenants (?, when arriving Danielle wasn't home herself) were friendly and there if we needed help or something.
- we didn't have a parking permit, but we were told that if we would get a fine, Danielle would pay it, so I would say that's fair when advertising with 'free parking'. There was enough parking space in the street closeby.
- We couldn't use the bathroom between 6:30 and 8:30, because other people in the house had to go to work and use it. This was quite inconvenient, since we're early during our trips to make most of our day.
- In the evenings, the bus doesn't go that often, so if you're unlucky you'll have to wait quite a while at the train station. We had our own car and parked it at the train station, we would advise that if you bring a car.
- Breakfast is not included!!!
Great people and an absolutely beautiful location.
We felt welcomed. Danielle is super sweet! New and very comfortable queen size bed!! Awesome views!
The room and the place are exactly as described, nice and clean. Danielle is a nice host, she gave us clear explanations about everything we needed to know.
The location is great, near the ocean and not far away from the main attractions in the city center via bus and subway. You just need to be well organize and get a bus schedule, since it only runs approximately every 40min.
Nice and safe neighborhood. Good location, easy to get to the MBTA station.
The bed is comfortable although the photos are not updated to the conditions of the house.
The bathroom is shared with some rommattes.
The Danielle's dogs are very cute
Danielle and friends were very friendly and seemed to have a great time.They even bundled up and walked out on the trails through the woods.They left the house tidy with everything in place.A joy to have visit my home.
Danielle was a great guest. She was friendly, quiet and she cleaned up after herself. I would have her back any time.
