Gerta's home is a fabulous historic house with large rooms, high ceilings and lots of windows. My bedroom was big and airy and very comfortable and had its own private bath. The location is just outside the city and close to beaches. The clean air was welcomed after a hot day in the city. Gerta and her husband John were lovely and welcoming. John carried my luggage up the stairs for me which was very much appreciated! Communications with them was excellent. I felt relaxed and at home, and even watched some TV with them. I definitely recommend staying in their home and look forward to another opportunity to visit them!
We had a very nice experience at Gerta's although our visit was very short. I arrived from a transatlantic flight about 10 PM - my husband's passport had been lost so he was delayed. Gerta was up waiting for me and even carried my suitcase up to the top floor to the room. About 11 PM my husband called from the airport that he'd arrived. Gerta gave him directions and explained to me where to wait and how to lock up after his arrival. She was very patient and nice about all this and arranged for a cab for us in the AM, although with jet lag we awoke very early and left without seeing her that AM (using the cab company she'd called.) The room was nice and the bed wonderful and comfortable. No one else was there so we had the bath to ourselves. The only thing to be aware of is the several flights of stairs to the entry and then to the room (which we were warned about.) It was an easy $15 cab ride from the airport. Thanks, Gerta!!
room is clean and comfortable!
Gerta was nice and very straight foward with whatever information we might need. She gave us an excellent recomedation on where to eat (Cafe Rossetti if you get a chance) It was amazingly good food! Other than than we didn't really see Gerta until check out, everything was clean and pretty easy to get to, and the beach is just a block away. For the money I don't think you can do better.
Nous avons apprécié la chambre. Elle était propre et correspondait à la description.
Gerta est un hôte géniale; elle nous accommodait étant donné que notre horaire était chargée.
Très belle maison, très belle endroit.
Très satisfaite de notre visite
Gerta was very accommodating and the place was comfortable. Would recommend it for anyone looking for an inexpensive, nice place to stay in Boston.
This is a perfect place to stay a few days near Boston without the noise of the city.
The neighborhood is quiet and really pleasant to take some fresh for a walk along the beach but not so far to the subway to easily go to Boston.
The room is really clean (as the other parts of the house) and comfortable.
Last but not the least, Gerta and her husband are really nice and they do all they can in order you feel comfortable and you enjoy your trip.
All is been as planned and Gerta is a very nice host....... Perfect place to stay with family near closed to Boston..... Having a car is preferred to visit a lot of nice places around.
Our family had a great stay at Gerta's apartment. It is great space: spacious, nicely laid out, bright with lots of windows for fresh air, and creatively decorated. The location is steps from the ocean and a short, easy drive to Logan airport, which was perfect for us, as we didn't want to have to deal with rush hour traffic after arriving. It's only about 6 miles to downtown Boston and the Back Bay, which will take about 20 minutes if you avoid rush hours. And it was great to have free parking right out front. Gerta was very welcoming and supplied us with everything and all the information we needed. There is no TV, which didn't matter to us, but if you have kids who need it, bring substitutes. All in all, highly recommended.
My friend and I stayed at Gerta's for a night. The room was nice and spacious and the bed was so comfortable. The bathroom is shared but kept very clean. The house is located a cab ride ($5.50) away from the Blue Line subway station (Orient Heights) to get into downtown Boston or you can walk between 45 - 60 minutes to get to the station.
We will definitely return to this affordable and lovely place whenever we are in the area.
