My charming and comfortable apartment with high ceilings and hardwood floors is by the ocean in a lovely neighborhood close to Boston. Easy access to bus, subway and commuter rail to Boston.

The space

Enjoy the sun and sand of two beautiful beaches just north of Boston and nestled in an historic district lined with trees and filled with antique homes. I have a furnished private room with its' own bathroom with shower, flat screen television with HBO and Showtime as well as WiFi. High ceilings, hardwood floors and charm just a block from the ocean. Bed linens and towels are included and there is a coin laundry in the building. My home is a spacious seven room apartment with loads of charm. Within walking distance are great neighborhood restaurants and shops.

Bus stop to Boston is just around the corner, the subway system is a 7 minute drive or by bus and the commuter rail is a 10 minute walk. There is parking on the street - I will provide the parking permit.

We are just a short drive to the historic and charming towns of Salem and Marblehead.

Awesome place and home with great location close to the beach. Totally enjoyed my 3 month stay with Amy. Helped me to enjoy my holidays away from family and I also had a wonderful airbnb experience. I couldn't have asked for a better host as she is very approachable and helpful and also understanding but will give you space when you want. Soooo glad I stayed here and would do that again when I come around the area. Oh and the area is quiet and peaceful and also beautiful. Would love to come back in the summer

Amy is a kind and considerate host. She was easy to communicate with about my arrival and everything else. The location worked perfectly for me, since I have a vehicle and free street parking was essential. The apartment is beautiful, and guests can use Amy's well appointed kitchen, which really makes one feel at home. The room is lovely, and has a window A/C, which is essential in the summer heat! I use Airbnb a lot when I travel, and this is one of my best experiences. Thanks, Amy!

Amy was a great host and I highly recommend this location for a long-term stay in the Boston area. She was super nice and accommodating. The location is great being one block from the beach with close access to grocery stores and restaurants and shopping. It is very clean and you have full access to the whole apartment.

Amy is a great host and I would highly recommend her! Amy is very welcoming. She would take me grocery shopping and she dropped me off at the airport. She did everything possible to make me comfortable. I stayed with Amy for my summer internship. The apartment is very clean and well organized. The bed is very comfortable! The location is great since it's 1 block from the ocean and easily walkable to the bus and commuter train station. The apartment is perfect for a long term stay in the Boston area.

Amy was very welcoming. She picked me up from the airport, offered to take me grocery shopping, and did everything possible to ensure that I was comfortable. The description in the listing was accurate, and the guest room was perfect (especially the very cozy bed!). The apartment is perfect for someone doing a long-term stay.
