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...
Gerta's house is very nice and clean, located right by a bus stop for the T and only a few minute's walk from the beach.
Note: This Bus stop only takes Cash! The bus won't take the Charlie card but once you get to the T it will work again. Have your student ID handy if you have once because it'll get you a discount.
The only issue we had with our stay (which thankfully we avoided) was that we were unable to contact Gerta before/upon our arrival. A few weeks before we tried to contact Gerta through email and we never heard a response. The day of we tried to call her, only to find out the phone number was no longer in service. Thankfully her daughter was at the house cleaning when we arrived to let us into the room and show us around! Her daughter was very pleasant and helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and left us her phone number in case we needed anything during our stay. I am unsure however, if she wasn't there cleaning when we arrived if we would have gotten into the house! She did say she sent out emails to her moms guests that day about how to enter the house if she wasn't there, but we did not receive an e-mail.
Also, there is not a coffee maker or toaster in the kitchen. There is a Dunkin Donuts about a block away though.
I also recommend bringing a blanket with you during your stay. When we arrived there was only a sheet on our bed to sleep with, thankfully we found a blanket in the closest but I recommend bringing your own.
My stay in Winthrop was wonderful. Klaudia, Gerta's daughter, welcomed me very friendly. The room was very quiet and clean and the bed was comfortable. The house is located really close to a bus stop which leads to the closest metro station quickly, so to get to Boston was really easy.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Although we never met Gerta, we did meet her lovely daughter and she was great! Klaudia made sure that we had everything we needed and gave us advice on traveling in Boston. The bed was very comfrey and even thought the house was shared with other guest you still had lots of privacy. We met the other guest and they were very kind as well. I would highly recommend this stay!
Basic but clean appartment. Bus and blue line take you to the city center..
We stayed in Winthrop for 4 days. Gertas house is well located, its easy to go downtown Boston and arrive from the Airport.
The house itself is pretty and spacious but needs a little maintaing. Everything was clean. We havent met Gerta in Person but there was someone to greet us. We would stay at Gertas place again.
The room was clean and the house was tidy. Pity we never got to meet Gerta. Very convenient location to get into Boston by train.
Wir hatten mit Gerta eine wirklich super freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Das Zimmer haben wir wie beschrieben und in sauberem Zustand vorgefunden. Die Lage war für uns optimal. Sehr netter Strand gleich in der Nähe, 2 Bahnstationen zum Rever Beach (traumhaft!). Die Anbindung nach Boston ist ebenfalls unkompliziert.
