Nicole is an excellent host and most helpful on the local ways and means of getting about. She is fast and thoughtful with email and phone responses.
I had only one issue and that is mainly because of where I am from and what I expect without thinking to ask. The room had a fan, but no AC. Unfortunately, the weather was hot and humid which for me personally made sleeping difficult.
The place is in a nice quiet neighborhood and easy to park a car.
It was a wonderful experience staying at Nicole's house. She is a very nice person and always ensure that you have comfortable stay. She is always reachable through text messages and respond promptly. Even she used to visit personally and ensure that you don't have any issues.
I booked the place just one day before my stay and I was delighted that everything was already setup before my arrival. She handed over the keys to me so that I can come and go out anytime.
The house is exactly same as it looks in the pictures. Neighborhood is very calm and nice. I was able to find the street parking spot for my car without any difficulty!
Overall, my stay at Nicole's home was comfortable and nice. Thanks a lot Nicole for your warm welcome and hospitality!
The host, Nicole, was very hospitable and she tried to accommodate me. Unfortunately, the room I was in had below standard beds and I had no choice but to find other accommodations after 2 days of my 5 day reservation. The bedroom had bunk beds with a full bed on bottom and single on top. The bottom full bed does not have a box spring and it sagged in the middle, despite the host having 2 thin mattresses on it. It was very difficult to get to sleep the first night and to stay asleep. It was just a little better the second after I slept at the bottom of the bed. I told the host after the first night and she said she could put a roll-away bed in the room. Since my brother was to show up for the 3rd day and we needed 2 decent beds, I held off on that until I tested the top bunk the 2nd day. The top bunk mattress did not have a box spring but was okay and did not sag. However, because it had a thick plastic covering, it was somewhat noisy and very distracting and not the standard you would expect if renting a room. So 2 out of the two bunk beds really weren't good.
Although, the host had offered a roll-a-way bed and a blow-up bed as other options, I opted out of staying for 3 more days after 2 days. My brother and I needed to have good sleeps the final 3 days of the 5-day trip. It sure didn't seem likely that the roll-away and blow-up mattress would be any better than the bunk beds - especially the blow up. As such, I didn't try them. We needed 2 good beds. There also would not have been room in the bedroom for both of them.
My recommendation is that the host try sleeping in the bunk beds herself for a couple of days to fairly judge my complaint. She indicated to me that no one else has complained. I highly suspect that the bunk beds are rarely used and if so, they are not used for more than a couple of days. If the hostess agrees that the bunk beds are substandard, I feel it will be reasonable to request that I be reimbursed for at least 1/2 the cost of the 3 days I was unable to use her home.
Overall, the hostess had a reasonably accommodating home that was clean. If using this place, I recommend asking for the large bedroom with the regular twin bed. The beds in that room would be fine for 5 days or more. Unless the bunk-beds are replaced in the small bedroom with mattresses with box springs, I would not recommend staying in that small bedroom more than 2 nights if you want to feel well rested in the morning.
I booked Nicole's place the day before my arrival and everything went very smooth. She is very professional, and always at reach via text or email. The house is spartan but clean and very comfortable overall. The bathroom is not exactly heated, but there's plenty of hot water when you need it. The rest of the house instead is nice and warm. The neighbourhood is ok, I came back from downtown at around midnight three days in a row and I never felt unsafe. It's also extremely well connected to the underground and to the rest of the public transportation system through the express streetcar line. It takes about 45min to get downtown. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
When staying in the Greater Boston Area, look no further than this beautiful Victorian Home! Nicole's service and professionalism is unparallelled, and complemented perfectly by the house and the accommodations. The space provided was large, open, immaculate, and perfectly furnished, and fit my ever need and then some. The house had a true, classic New England theme about it. Whether you're from New England, or just in town for a visit (business or pleasure) this is THE place to stay. This quintessential New England home is flawless. The location from I-93 is great, and it's walking distance from town and the grocery store.
Nicole is always reachable by a text in case of issues or a simple request for dinner suggestions.
Thank you for the great stay and I'll be back soon!
Nicole is fantastic. The house is warm and accommodating. Nicole is immediately available for any and all needs. The neighborhood is great. Could not give a higher recommendation. Thank you Nicole for all you do for your guests.
This place was easily one of the best places I've been to using airbnb. The host is wonderful. She makes sure you have exactly what you need and will check in occasionally without being intrusive. She also provides a handy printout of the house rules, checkout procedure and a list of important locations around town. The room itself is great, close to a bus stop and trolley stop which can take you to a red line station. I give this space my full recommendation! Do not miss out!
The reception was very good. One week before we exchanged text messages. When I arrived the room was ready and the host showed me the house. I had access to the living room with TV and the kitchen, where I would prepare my breakfast. I had a key for my room and for the main door.
The trolley station is a less than 10 minutes walk. Then I'd be in downtown Boston in around 35 minutes.
During my stay the host was available to my demands and questions by text messages and by airbnb app message.
It's an old charming house in good shape, but the heating system isn't very good, or seemed to be turned off. The host provided extra blankets, but the house was colder than what I'm used for. I can understand that, I come from Quebec and the cost of heating is much lower.
My wife and i stayed for 1 whole month & we renewed for an additional month.. we had a very good time at Nicole's, the place is in a quiet area of Boston, safe and relaxing, a 3 minutes walk to Star supermarket and 2 minutes to the bus stop, which was very convenient to us.. Nicole is a very nice & welcoming host, she always checked if we needed anything and offered us a Playpen and toys to use for the baby.. Nicole also made sure we got all the privacy we needed and when we wanted something, she is a perfect guide to where to go and what to do in Boston.. all in all it was an amazing stay, would definitely recommend it.. if you are looking for a great place to stay in proximity of Boston, Nicole's place is the Best..
Nicole met me at the door and I immediately felt welcome. The room was accurately described. The neighborhood was ideal. I had no problem finding parking on the street in front of Nicole's house and the supermarket at the end of the street was very convenient.
