I'm a consultant working and living in the Boston area. I like traveling to see new places, meet new people, and enjoy good food in good company.
This was definitely a boston experience! Classic brownstone in the heart of Back Bay, 50 degrees outside with clear blue skies, and a very warm and cozy room!
Although Maria wasn't there, her roommate was available to show me around the place. The bathroom itself def shows how space is conserved; i've never used a bathroom with three floors! Water pressure was excellent; my previous experience with old housing in SF's North Beach had me worried. A quick walk from the Prudential tower, both the Green and Orange line, and across the river from Harvard/MIT made for getting about and great photography.
I highly recommend any traveler to boston who wants a true living experience to check this place out.
My partner and I stayed at Maria's for 3 nights and it were very happy with it.
The location is fantastic! Really close to Fenway Park, the blue line of the T, MIT, and some of the best dining and shopping in Boston.
The room was cozy, clean and adequate for our needs. Maria was extremely friendly, communicative and helpful. We also had the best sleeps we have ever had while traveling in Maria`s comfy bed. Thanks Maria
We had a fantastic stay with Maria and her roommate. I didn't have a chance to actually meet Maria but all communication via email and text were prompt and informative. The apartment is in a prime location and we fell in love with the Back Bay neighbourhood. The room is serviceable but that's what we expected. We pretty much just wanted a place to sleep. I would definitely stay there again next time I'm in Boston.
Maria was a very kind host. She went out of her way (including a late night shopping trip) to get me a fresh towel when she realized that I didn't have one. She also checked in on me throughout my trip to be sure that I had everything I needed and that I was safe (it was Boston Marathon weekend). The apartment is located in a great area and I was able to walk to most places I needed to get to. Boston is a great city and Maria and her friends were great people to get to meet.
I would recommend Maria's apartment for a young single person or a young couple who wants to spend a few days in Boston. It is a shared apartment with roommates who reminded me of my student days! The apartment is very well located, near the esplanade and the metro. Perhaps the household is to review(especially in the bedroom), apart from that everything is perfect.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Stayed for a few nights last-minute. Maria was friendly and responded quickly to phone/email if anything came up. The cat is definitely adorable. The room itself was very much a college room, but I slept well and felt like I had some privacy. I did not spend much time at the apartment, but seldom ran into anybody when I was there. The location is fantastic with a good view of the city and is right by the esplanade.
Maria was a great host, even if she wasn't there while we stayed in her apartment, she was always reachable and helpful. I would definitely stay at her place again. Thanks Maria!
Maria is very friendly. The cat Leah is adorable.
Maria and her group of 8 friends were great guests at the Cherry Dip Cottage. We would welcome back Maria and her group anytime.
She tried to stay one more night without informing me and when she has asked to pay for one more night. She did not pay and left the place without paying! Be carefull about this guest!
Maria and her friend were delightful girls and it was very nice having them around even if it was for short. I would recommend them to future hosts for sure.
Mrs Maria is very nice, polite and patient. We are sorry that due to the weather conditions she was unable to come. We hape that we'll have the chance to accommodate her in the future.
