Eleanor and Magnus were very welcoming, and their house is great! They were very accommodating and the sleeping space was clean and private.
Thanks Eleanor and Magnus! We really enjoyed our time in Boston!
This listing was perfect for time there. We felt welcomed by Eleanor and Magnus. They were happy to answer questions and gave us some great recommendations for places to go and tips for getting around. It was easy getting to and from the airport and city. The room was clean and comfortable.
Eleanor and Magnus were great hosts. Everything was as stated in their listing. It is in a beautiful rural area outside of Boston but it served our purpose since we weren't commuting into Boston from there. They let us do our laundry which was great. Friendly peple.
Eleanor and Magnus were wonderful hosts, extremely welcoming and accommodating! The room had everything I needed to make the place feel like a true home away from home- lamps, chairs, desk, books about Boston and a fantastically cozy bed! The bathroom was just steps away from the loft and the water was piping hot- which I truly appreciate! The location also was awesome! Just minutes away from my conference and an easy and short drive to Harvard Square, although Belmont has a cute downtown with several delicious restaurant options. I would highly recommend staying with Eleanor and Magnus! They are awesome :)
Had a very nice stay with Eleanor and Magnus. They were very welcoming and happy to share their knowledge of the area along with other travel destinations. Learned lots of great tips. The loft was just as pictured and everything was clean and prepared for it arrival.
Neighborhood is good and only 12 miles from downtown Boston.
It was greaaat to be at Eleanor and Magnus again. We were so lucky they hosted us at the last minute, when we needed the most ( we had a problem with another airbnb host ) Eleanor had prepared eveything to greet us once again and it was a very warming welcome. Finally, we had the chance to share a dinner with them, and it was perfect. We really enjoyed the moment. Everything really felt like home.
Another great stay with Eleanor. She is polite and attentive...its always a pleasure to spend time with her!
It was our first experience with Airbnb and it was flawless. Eleanor sent us a detailed message with clear instructions about public commuting and gave us other useful advices. Magnus even came to pick us up at the bus stop by car, which was more than welcomed after a long bus ride. The room was perfect, as pictured. Actually, it was even more beautiful with the new carpet and vintage furniture. It was very clean and confortable with the A/C (vital for those hot summer days). And because the loft was spacious, you have plenty of place down the stairs to store your things, which left the sleeping area always tidy. Consequently, it was always a warming welcome after a long day discovering the city. And yes, the skylight is as pictured…and stars are so bright at night, you'll love the experience. If you're looking into privacy, it is the perfect place, since the sleeping area is part of the attic, it just felt like being in a cocoon. Privacy does not mean loneliness though, because Eleanor and Magnus were wonderful hosts; they were very thoughtful, always respected our privacy, but they do have plenty of interesting stories to tell, which gave us a very precious insight into Boston life.
Most of all, they were wonderful persons, and accepted to host us another week at the last minute (we had a very horrible airbnb experience with another airbnb member, we had to leave the place and found ourselves with nowhere to go; I texted Eleanor and she replied right away and greeted us with fresh sheets (which we didn't even have at the other place!)) and a warm welcome back even if she was very busy with other projects.)
If you're looking into a place to stay to visit Cambridge (15 minutes walk to the bus stop and 20 minutes bus ride directly to Harvard square. The bus came frequently, too, which was a big plus) or Boston, don't hesitate, you'll LOVE the room and the people there. Oh and last but not least, the neighborhood is very safe: we always came back after 11:30pm and walked at night without worrying (although it all depends on your own level of confort. If you plan to come back earlier, you'll love the walk next to the reservation)
Enjoy you stay in Belmont, we're sure you'll love it.
Our stay with Eleanor and Magnus was just awesome. We enjoyed it so much. The loft was really comfortable and with every privacy you need. Both of them were so nice and helpful,we couldn´t have asked for more! The neighborhood was really quiet and safe. The next metro station is about 5-10 min away by car.there you can leave your car for 7$! And then it is a quick ride downtown or even to Harvard or MIT! They gave us a lot of hints and information relating to what to do and where to go in Boston. We definitely recommend a stay with Eleanor and Magnus!
Your World Champions :-)
Eleanor and Magnus were both lovely to host. They are very friendly, sociable and left the room in great condition. I would love to host them again anytime.
It was absolutely lovely to host Eleanor. Being in her company is pure delight! Eleanor left the place in just as they found it condition. Neat as a pin and respectful of house rules, etc, I wish they could have stayed longer and welcome back any time. I am looking forward to being her guest someday as well.
Thank you for hosting us! We loved staying with you and will definitely return!
MAGNUS IS GREAT! He's so pleasant ... and we both really enjoyed his conversation (he does pretty cool stuff for a living). He's really nice too-- he gave me a box of treats to thank me for his stay (no, thank YOU-- we should be paying HIM to stay with us).
A very interesting person with a fascinating project. We had some wonderful conversations and wish him and his business all the very best for the future. We can definitely recommend Magnus.
Eleanor husband, Magnus and step-son Jack stayed with us for a week, and it wasn't enough! They were incredibly considerate, clean, and full of great conversation. Perhaps my favorite part of having them stay with us was how willing they were to go with the punches, even joining us last-minute for a dinner party in which they quickly became the beloved attendees.
I would welcome Eleanor, Magnus, and Jack back anytime!
Eleanor was great !!! Easy to communicate with and very clean!!!
Magnus was a personable and quiet guest.
Magnus was a great guest. Quiet, respectful and clean. I would recommend him as a guest. He is welcome to return at any time.
Eleanor and Magnus were wonderful! Friendly, lovely and great company all the way around. Eleanor even left me with a gift! So sweet. I wish I had the chance to spend more time with them. I hope to host them again someday or be a guest if theirs in the future
