We stayed at Ken's house recently when we had to bring our daughter back to school after the holiday break. Communication with Ken was friendly and expeditious. The house was cozy and comfortable, and the cats welcomed us as if they knew we were coming. ( "Where have you been?" mewed Black Cat). We slepted really well in the very comfortable guest bed, with ample, cozy comforters. The location was great! We had tickets to the House of Blues, and chose to drive, as opposed to taking the T, as the weather was really snowy and cold (we found $10 parking!), and it was only 4 miles from the house. However, the Forest Hills T station is just round the corner, and surely would be a convenient alternative to driving. It's hard to believe this quiant, little, residential neighborhood is so close to the hustle and bustle of Boston! The next morning on our way out, we had breakfast in JP. It's a great area, filled with eclectic shops and lots of delightful eateries. We would definately return here!! Thanks, Ken!
Dear Ken, I have been doing Airbnb for about a year and I have learned one thing while staying at your charming house, there is always something new to learn to do things better. You have a magnificent house with enough room to keep all of us comfy and COZY. We were in Boston for an event a UMass and that kept us busy most of the weekend, but we were so happy coming home to your place. It was perfect. The details are so nice that I wish I had a little place out there too. The cats were so cool too. They are so sweet and friendly and you never ever worry about them. They are so self sufficient, going in and out on their own. Thank you for allowing me and my family the opportunity to enjoy your house. We are just so sorry we didn't have enough time to see more of Boston. Your place was just as you advertised it.
Beautiful house in a quiet location and not far from the sights of Boston. Comfortable beds and great showers. The cats are adorable and there is a nice garden with table and chairs for outside dining. I would definitely book Ken's house again when in the Boston area.
My husband and kids all had a great stay. The house is clean and spacious. Ken was easy to communicate with and very easy going. We felt at home in their beautiful house. Thanks for a positive experience.
I agree with the other reviewers that this is the sort of place you almost hate to review, cause you'd like to keep it for yourself. What a fantastic rental. Lovely home, tons of space, light and airy (which is not the case in a lot of Boston homes--note to fellow indoor-allergy folks, this place is great), pin-drop quiet neighborhood, great kitchen to cook in, and the hot tub is awesome. Ken was a superlative host--can't say enough nice things about his communication and their generosity, and we are so grateful that he worked us in at the last minute. One of the nicest parts of our stay was getting to hang with the resident cats. We recently lost both of our elderly cats, so were definitely in the market for some kitty company. Was hoping these two would be "people" cats and they definitely are. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place and adorable animals with us, Ken. We hope it works out to stay at your home again.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and to be honest it is difficult to imagine a better one.
The communication with Ken is friendly and very easy.
The house is very comfortable, well equipped and is perfectly situated near the ground transportation.
And last but not least you can feel lot of love in this home.
We highly recommend.
Ken's house is a true marvel ; it is spatious and sun-filled, every little item has been chosen with care and taste, and it is situated in a beautiful leafy neighbourhood. Though we didn't meet Ken in person, he proved a very caring host, and was easy to communicate with. We came as a whole family of five, but there was lots of extra room. I would definately recommend Ken's place for a stay in Boston.
Ken was a very kind and thoughtful host! Their house is very charming, spacious and in a very nice neighborhood. It was very easy to get to and was quite close to downtown. The two cats of the house were very friendly. The only issue was the extreme heat outdoors, combined with the A/C upstairs that didn't work which made it impossible to sleep upstairs. In cooler weather, it wouldn't have been an issue at all...
Thank you for the birthday gift, and for your welcoming notes!
Response from Ken:
Yavuz- thank you for your kind words! Our central AC is now fully fixed. Sorry for the hassle. If you come stay at our house again we leave you a gift as a way to make it up to you.
Ken and Christina provided an ideal home for our trip. It was conveniently located off of the Forest Hills T stop on the Orange Line which provided easy transportation into downtown Boston and the airport. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the stop and nearby restaurants. Most of the activities on our trip were in Jamaica Plain so it was especially convenient for us. There is also ample parking for those with a vehicle.
The home was very clean and comfortable and in a nice neighborhood. Ken provided great communication and recommendations for places to eat. The two cats were a pleasant addition to the stay, but certainly could be left to their own devises if needed.
I highly recommend this place to those traveling to Boston especially those with multiple people in their party and would hope to be able to stay there on any future trips to Boston.
We just loved the stay at Ken & Christina's home. They were very welcoming, considerate in all possible ways. Their house is perfectly located , with an easy access to any place you want to visit...The neighbourhood was quiet..The house is well-maintained, clean, with beautiful decor...
We had a fun time with the (email hidden)rely would recommend coming here...
It was a pleasure to host Ken and his family. They kept the condo very clean and observed every rule. It was very easy to communicate with Ken throughout all his stay. I will highly recommend him as a guest and I hope to welcome him and his family back soon.
Ken, his family and friends are warm, easy going, fun loving family people. They are easy to communicate with. Getting away is important to their busy lifestyle with sports, good food, and quiet times. I thoroughly enjoy their energy, look forward to their return and recommend them to another host's property with high regard.
Ken and Christina were wonderful guests. They were interactive without ever being intrusive, they explored the property, enjoyed the area and left the Bunkhouse close to as tidy as when they arrived. Could not ask for more!
#1 Favorites- Ken and his Wife Christina; These two were absolutely terrific guest's. Two people I hope come back the next time they are back in Seattle. Edit that- Two guest's and one baby :) Ken was so full of positive energy, and his wife was very sweet as well. They are host on AirBnB Boston. They had many ideas, stories and knowledge to share with me on being a good host, and what has worked for them. They left the place cleaner than I left it to them, and some treats for the next guest, which made my day( of course). Thank you Ken, Christina and Baby:). You guys are the best! To anyone that host's, and receives an inquiry to host Ken and Christina, SAY YES!
Ken and Cristina were wonderful guests! Being our first guests, I did not know what to expect exactly and was quite happy to meet them. Ken communicated their arrival and departure times which was excellent. They left the apartment in the same way as when they came as if they were not even here. Again, very courteous and thoughtful people whom I hope come to stay here again.
See you soon. Jeff
Ken is very easy and quick to communicate with. He and his guests are a fun outdoor or indoor type of group, prepared for any type of weather; or local attractions. They are gracious, easy going and clean. I gladly look forward to their return to my property anytime.
Ken and his wife stayed at "Sanctuary near Cathedral," our apartment in Washington, DC, in January 2013. They stayed just one night on a whirlwind visit to Washington, so we hope they return...we would welcome them back anytime. Great guests.
Ken and his wife Kristina were friendly, appreciative and clean guests. They were wonderful to have!
Ken and Christina are great guests! They are easy going and they left the place in perfect condition. I definitely recommend them!
