I am a mom of two beautiful kids:-)...and I mean "absolutely beautiful"...-)))...
I like simple things in life..... family, good friends, a good book, a walk on the beach...
The room was really nice, we appreciated the clean kitchen as well. We had some issues while arriving due to the host not being available.
La maison de Gerta est très jolie et spacieuse mais nous avons dû tomber sur la mauvaise chambre car rien ne fonctionnait dedans et Gerta de nous répondait pas. Les photos ne sont pas à jour car il n'y a pas les rideaux (juste des stores), pas de tapis et pas vraiment de décos à jour. C'est spacieux cependant. L'électricité ne fonctionnait pas dans la chambre, alors 35°C sans climatisation... Merci bien. La seule lumière qu'on avait était branchée dans la salle de bain puisque la seule prise qui marchait était à cet endroit. La télé ne fonctionnait pas car pas d'électricité là non plus. La salle de bain était très propre, très bien. Le quartier était tranquille et bien situé. Nous ne recommanderions pas cette chambre. C'est dommage car il y a juste à rafraichir et à remettre l’électricité !!!
Notre hôte n'était pas là à notre arrivé, ni durant notre séjour, mais elle nous avait donné toutes les informations nécessaires pour séjourner. Nous n'avons eu aucun problème pour pour s'y retrouver et la place est rempli de dépliant de Boston pour les visiteurs. Le logement est très près des autobus et du métro, ce qui rend facile d'aller à Boston en transport en commun. Très bien!
Winthrop is a nice quiet neighborhood. Gerta and her daughter made us feel right at home. The apartment is a short ride or about a 20 minute walk from the nearest rapid transit station, which will take you all over Boston and the nearby suburbs.
The room is small, and its a bit messy house. Gerta didnt react on the messages we send her, only a couple hours before we arrived.
Die Unterkunft war sauber und gut eingerichtet. Die Küche kann benutzt werden, was super ist. Man teilt das Bad mit anderen Gästen. Die Anbindung an Boston ist gut. Optimale Unterkunft, um die Stadt zu erkunden!
The house was perfect. And the publictransport connection to Boston was good. However, in certain parts of the house there was no electricity. There was no taking care of the problem, so we had to leave earlier than expected.
My room, but also the rooms of other guests, were not at all as in the photo used to advertise. It was not at all that nice. The bathroom was also rather rundown with a shower curtain that was half broken down and a piece of paper sticked to the wall with an instruction to dry yourself in the tub, rather amateuristic, printing something and sticking it in an orderly way is not such a huge investment, I would think! When I arrived, there was an empty bottle under my bed!
Also when I arrived there was a note saying that the electricit was gone in part of the house and that the internet didn't work as a result of that. But it said the electrician was going to come tomorrow to fix it. However, the note was up every day of my 3-day stay and we saw no electrician and nobody else for the matter. The last day, more guests arrived and I had to explain everything, also how the security on the frontdoor worked because the note to explain it was almost not readible anymore, written by hand on a small piece of paper. Again, not very professional.
What would have helped was one of the owners present there to receive the guests and explain the situation. I texted to the owner's daugther but she was not really helpful.
So all in all I would not recommend the place in its present situation.
No proper contact and reaction from Gerta at all.
Overall this was a perfect one-night stay for my boyfriend, puppy, and me. We wanted something outside of Gillette stadium in a nice area near Boston. The only issue that came about was our ceiling fan and light did not work, and consequently it was extremely hot and stuffy in the room. Additionally, we were not aware that other guests would be staying in the house during the same time we were there. I would have appreciated knowing that.
