I'm from Boston, MA and love traveling probably more than anything!
Christina and her bouncy, outgoing husband Rick were very open with their home. We were not confined to the room we had rented (which was vaguely Victorian and very cozy), but rather had full run of the designer kitchen and the lounge/living room area with its tufted sofa, well-endowed television and loving male cat. The couple's book collection is second to none. Any mistakes we made were only gently reprimanded. We were at ease. Out of a total of three, his has been my boyfriend and my's best AirBnB experience.
Please keep in mind that from this part of Medford, a bus ride is required to get you to the nearest Orange Line station, Wellington. It is a solidly residential area, primarily working class, and does not offer much in the way of shops or amenities.
Cheers to Christina and Rick!
It was a pleasure staying with Christina Bolton and her husband in Medford. She even swelled the audience at my poetry reading and gave me a ride 'home.'
Everything was just great. Rick and Christina are very nice and friendly people and did everything possible for a comfortable stay. The house is spacious and the kitchen has everything you might need. My aunt and mom were very satisfied with their experience of staying in Rick's and Christina's house.
Rick & Christina were inviting, welcoming & warm. We even found ourselves snowed in the last day we were there and were able to stay an extra night. They shared stories, food and even a movie. Such a great experience to have when you're staying in someone else's home.
The room was perfect for us. We were in town for just a few days and it couldn't have been more comfortable. I highly recommend a stay with these two in one of their rooms if you're visiting the area. The reviews are true!
Christina and Rick were great hosts. The neighborhood is quiet and the bed very comfortable. They provide space for their guests' food and allow full use of the kitchen. The walls of their home are covered in art, and they will be happy to tell you the interesting stories behind the paintings and photos, if asked. The bus is a short walk away, but runs infrequently after 7:30pm. A variety of stores are a few blocks away as well. ... A very comfortable place to stay when in the Boston area.
Christina & Rick are great! The communication is instant no matter where they are. Both Christina and Rick are very accommodating and caring, super host! I totally enjoyed my 4-month stay in Medford, and felt like my second home. The house is exactly like it is shown on the website, very cozy, complete with everything you need. It is an easy drive to MIT and Harvard. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone, especially those with cars.
I could not have picked a better place to stay while I was starting my new job on the East Coast. I booked the room for a month and stayed about three weeks with a week of travel for business in the middle. Christina and Rick were great hosts, available if I had questions or needed anything but I also had plenty of privacy. I am due to come back next month and because I have not found a place to live yet, I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Christina et son mari ont vraiment été très accueillant !
La maison est super et très propre, bien équipée, et très bien située.
Quartier calme, près d'un arrêt de bus (pratique pour rejoindre le métro !).
Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de notre passage.
What a great place! Christina has thought of everything a visitor might need/want. She has done a lovely job decorating with interesting art & treasures from her travels. We loved the cats! Nice quiet neighborhood with an easy walk to the bus to take you to T lines. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!
This house was great and spacious! It had such charm and was on a nice, quiet street. Christina was great to communicate with, she was fast at getting back to us. We were always able to park on the street right in front of the house so parking was never a problem. The house is adorable and looks exactly like the photos posted. We would stay here again for sure!
From the house it was about 15-20 minutes from downtown Boston - We had a car so this was not a problem at all! Even though we didn't use everything, the kitchen seemed to be well stocked with cooking utensils and pots and pans. Everything you would need if you wanted to cook.
Overall we had a great experience here and it was a nice place! Thanks Christina!
Christina was a very nice guest, she took really good care of my flat, she is welcome to stay anytime!
They were so nice :) Talkative, polite, respectful. I sure know where to stay if I go to Boston ;)
Christina and her husband were very nice guests. They respected the apartment, were clean and easy to get on with. I would recommend them and wish them all the best for the future
Christina et son mari sont des gens agréable , discret et avenant je les recommande fortement
It was a great pleasure hosting Christina. She filled our house with a nice energy, left the room in great order and is a highly recommended guest that we hope to see back sometime.
