Subject: AirBnB home in Cambridge, MA. - feedback
Gavin has a beautiful home that is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood in Cambridge, MA within approx. half a mile from TD bank and at least two shopping malls. The Fresh Pond park and golf course are only a few blocks away!
He has a large fully equiped kitchen with modern appliances and plenty of pots of all shapes and sizes that were perfect for cooking a multi-course Thanksgiving dinner!
The wooden floors are highly polished and cover all floors of the home. The master bedroom is very comfortable and has multiple windows as sources of morning light, which we loved!
The master bathroom is very comfortable with his/hers sinks, a jacuzzi jet tub, and a separate shower! There are several "technical" amenities throughout the house, which included electronic panels supporting bidet and seat warming features for the toilets! There is also a very nice Electric fireplace in the living room!
It should be clear by now that we enjoyed the house. Interestingly the house is full of bookcases with books that I would have selected myself and many that I would love to read! Books in a home are windows into people's intellectual curiosity and Gavin seems to share many of mine, technical, SciFi, mysteries, history, sailing, and languages!
My best wishes to Gavin and his family! Thank you for your generous sharing of your home!
Gavin's place was really wonderful for our stay. I was here for work and it also happened to be my birthday. A few friends came to stay with me for the weekend.
We didn't get to meet Gavin or his family but can tell that they are great people by the photos and books all around the house.
The house is three stories and three bedrooms. It is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is very nice and well stocked. The living room has a beautiful fireplace which turns on electrically.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable, especially the master.
Parking is available at the house. The location is right by Fresh Pond and there are tons of supermarkets and everything else that would be needed within a few minutes. Getting from here to cambridge, boston, bedford, etc. is all very easy.
I would highly recommend this house.
Overal perfect experience. Mr. Peters is a well traveled man who appreciates authentic accomodations appropriate to the culture of the particular country in which he visits. It was a pleasure to have him and his family.
Gavin is a very good customer. Because of emergency issue, I can't personally welcome him in the apartment, he self-checked in and keep my room very good. He also left a gift in my room for my first order on airbnb. I am really happy to have Gavin as my airbnb first order customer which gave me very good experience.
It was such a pleasure to have Gavin as our guest. Gavin was communicative prior to his stay so that we could arrange a late arrival for him, and throughout so that we could ensure his stay was most comfortable. It would be wonderful to have him back!
Garvin is such a wonderful guest.
He is very nice and easy going and he keep the condo to be very clean.
Would love to have Garvin to come back again.
He is a dream guest every host would love to have.
Great communication. Apartment is left in great condition (with tons of food!). WIll be very happy to host again in the future :-).
Gavin m'a conseillé l'une de ses amies. Bien qu'il n'ait pas dormi chez moi j'ai eu l'occasion de le rencontrer et d'apprécier sa personnalité. Il ne manque pas d'humour et semble être quelqu'un de très respectueux. Je n'hésiterais pas à l'héberger s'il le souhaitais.
Gavin was an ideal host. He stayed three weeks with his family in Paris and left everything spotless. I recommend...
Gavin was a very enthusiastic guest and easy to deal with. Well communicated, very respectful and friendly. We were very happy to host him in our home in Paris and would not hesitate hosting him any time again. Definitely recommended. You have your home in Paris now!
Gavin, with his humour & knowledge is a great guest, friendly, easy going & a pleasure to have on our boat. He's very inspiring and there are many things to talk and so easy to get along. He's very quiet, considerate, observant of house rules, clean & tidy. We would highly recommend to other airbnb hosts.
A gentleman from the North! really classy man, Gavin is the host you dream to have in your place. Best to you Gavin. See ya around.
I have been lucky to know Gavin through family for 7 years now. When we stayed with Gavin and his family in Canbridge, they were perfect hosts - delicious food, great conversation, fun friends, excellent day trips. I would host Gavin and his family in my home anytime. I recommend Gavin without reservation.
Gavin and I worked together for some years, and I've known him for several years now. He's smart, helpful, easygoing, well-mannered and helpful. I'd have him stay with me the next time he's in my neighborhood... so I'd absolutely recommend him.
I have known Gavin for seven years now and worked with him for several of those years, and I am honored to be able to count him amongst my friends. He is a very considerate, well-mannered, and trustworthy person. He is simultaneously a man of many practical skills and someone knowledgeable in more theory than many professors, so you can have great conversations. Should you be lucky enough to share his meal, you'll find that he's also quite a good cook.
He and his lovely wife are the best possible people to let into your home. Their kids, should they travel together, are extremely well-behaved. I have fond memories of travelling with them to Québec City. I warmly recommend them as either guests or hosts.
