Private bedroom in cozy ocean front home, spectacular views of Boston Harbor and Skyline. Comfortable single bed with desk in the room. Enjoy access to front porches inside and out with wireless internet avaialble throughout. Enjoy access to the living room, tv, and dining room. The House is conveniently located down the block from the beach. There's a short walk to Blue Line Train.
I love having you here; you'll feel comfortable and at home. You will have a key to the house, so feel free to come and go as you choose. Enjoy your stay in Boston!
There was a miscommunication when I arrived. The hosts were not home and I did not have in advance the key code to enter the house. They did, however, respond very quickly to my requests for the code.
The house is on Bayswater Street, a very apt name, as it runs along a small inlet that is bordered on the other side by several runways of Logan Airport. However, I never found the sound of the planes taking off and landing to be disturbing. In fact, I kind of enjoyed watching this from the porch. I wish that I had had more time to explore the immediate surrounding area.
I should add that Jim and Afiyah put out a spread of sandwich and breakfast foods, which was very welcoming. As it seems they have a lot of guests coming through, this spread is probably a fixture in their kitchen. As I live in Beijing, being able to prepare a PB&J sandwich -- or two -- was something of a simple pleasure.
The bedroom I stayed in, which I refer to as the Lincoln Bedroom (there's a portrait of the president on the wall above the bed), was very comfortable. One inconvenience was the WiFi was not working during my one night there.
This was a good, convenient place to crash for the night. There is some noise from the airport but it didn't bother me. It wasn't air conditioned but with the windows opened I slept comfortably. I do feel like it's worth mentioning I didn't have a way to lock my bedroom and the bathroom didn't lock either. And the shower was disgusting but those are my only complaints. Very much appreciated the breakfast food left out for guests and the overall convenience of the stay.
Hose was so cute. Absolutely love the view of the bay from porch so nice. Even though the airport is close you really don't hear the planes inside with windows closed. My only comment is I wish I had known there was other guests in the home besides me, just as a courtesy to me. Also another house guest came home at 2am and repeatedly opened the door for about 20min making the door alarm go off every time. I had to be up at 4:30am so this was not convenient for me. Loved the kitchen breakfast station. So nice! There was no dish soap to clean my plates unfortunately, if there had been I would not have left dishes for them. Overall nice stay.
This place was very convenient for my morning flight out of Logan. Check in was a breeze and I slept well. Jim seemed pleasant as well as the other guests.
The location of the house is very convenient. The bedroom is nice and large. Both hosts were accommodating and helpful. They even provide food in their kitchen.
This is a good option for an overnight stay in Boston, very close to Logan and just a short walk from public transport.
As other reviews said, this is set up as a bed-and-breakfast with several rooms rented out, with shared bathroom, kitchen, and small living area (from which you can watch the planes at Logan). There's a code for the front door and rooms do not have locks. It was a bit startling when someone opened my bedroom door after midnight (likely looking for the bathroom).
The hosts sent detailed instructions via message and I had no problems. I did not meet them; after reading other reviews I didn't expect to.
If you're looking for a place to sleep for a layover, and you know this is what you're getting, it's a good deal. Don't forget to take your towel with you to the bathroom!
I needed a place to stay for an overnight layover, and figured this place would be a good place to stay. I was right. Everything was neat, clean, and orderly, and there was even breakfast foods available. Speaking as someone who just needed a place to stay the night, this place was perfect.
