I highly recommend Derek's Brookline apartment. It has by far been the best spot I have stayed at in Brookline.
Derek's apartment was absolutely beautiful. Brookline is one of my favorite places in the city and to be able to fell like that was my home for just a couple days was fantastic. He was a great host and my wife and I could not have asked for anything more. Thank you Derek!
Cozy says it all ! This apartment is in a great location with easy access to the T (2-3 minutes) and a mere 10 minute walk East to Coolidge Corner. And 10 minutes West to the Publick House for a great late night beer joint (Best Bar, 2011 Boston Phoenix Readers' picks; Boston Magazine - best of Boston award - best beer list; met a visiting brewer for Red Hook from Portland , OR ).
The apt is well-appointed with easy ingress on the ground floor; yet, it has windows on the side facing an outdoor courtyard. Shrubs+trees provide privacy without having to use the blinds much at all. My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay; and the hosts were very easy and eager to correspond with. On the way out, we drove by the Marriot Courtyard Brookline, which seemed very nice in a great location, but believe you me, staying at this apartment is far superior to staying in a hotel - especially with the greater flexibility of 'check-in' and 'check-out'. You cannot go wrong staying here ! Very Highly Recommended. Next time I need to spend a night in Boston-Brookline, I would prefer to stay here over all others if it was available. Try It - You'll Like It !
Tess and Derek were really helpful and even provided us with nice addresses in the area.
The apartment was very clean, cozy and convenient. It is a short walk away from nice restaurants, groceries stores etc. To go downtown you just need to step out, there is a MBTA stop right there.
Another great thing, rare in Boston, we got the chance to use their parking place.
We definitely recommend Tess and Derek's apartment, you will feel like home!
Derek and Tess were great. Although they only stayed for one night they were easy to communicate with. They seemed to enjoy all the great things that the Wood House and southern Vermont have to offer and I hope they return someday. Highly recommend!
Derek and Tess were terrific guests. They were adventurous outdoor people who seemed to enjoy the new surroundings of Montauk. Both were lovely and personable. They were in Montauk for a wedding and were occupied by the activities of the wedding. They left the room in absolute perfect condition and I would love to see them back again.
You're welcome back anytime! thanks for being a great guest.
Derek was super nice and friendly, very easy to work with!
Great folks. No problems at all. Left our casita cleaner than how they found it. Perfect guests.
Derek was a clean and respectful guest. His dog is well behaved. Sorry we never got the chance to meet.
Derek & Tess stayed at the cabin for 2 nights and left it in perfect order.
I give them my best recommendation as good guests to have!
Jess and Derek are extremely nice people. I really enjoyed their stay at my house. We had a good talk about almost everything -And they were so lucky to see Northern lights while staying here.
I hope to meet them again, (you have to visit me and Iceland during summer). When I go to Boston I will certainly be in touch with them and check if they have a room available for me.
Derek and Tess were great guests. They were really nice and even tidied up the place before leaving. I'd definitely recommend them and they're always welcome to stay at my place again.
Derek and his wife didn't meet me in person when checking in to my place but our communications back and forth were fast and effortless. The home was left in perfect condition and they even prepared my sheets and towels to make it easier for washing.
Everything was in its place and I didn't have to clean upon returning after their 5 day stay. With a service like AirBNB, you never know what kind of people you'll meet and I'm glad that it has connected me with a kind and responsible couple like the Haswells.
