Visting Family in Boston
I would have to say that this was the "BEST" experience my wife and I have had renting a home for vacation. Janel was exceptional and her home was absolutely immaculate, charming, warm, impeccably clean and was furnished and stocked with quality items. In fact, when I texted Janel asking if she had a drip coffee maker, she had one delivered to our door step in two days by Amazon. The neighborhood was quiet and located in a typical wooded New England area with easy access to Boston. Thank you Janel for helping to make our Boston visit so enjoyable.
WOW- it doesn't get better than the "BEST." Thank you so much!!! You were amazing guests and we would happily invite you back any time.
Luxurious Well-Equipped Family Home
We stayed at Janel & Peter's lovely home in Bedford while we were in town for four nights. Janel was welcoming and attentive as our host, available by phone/text to handle any needs that might come up, and gracious in all of her communication with us.
The house is tucked in a sweet neighborhood a few blocks off the main road, just a couple minutes away from bagels, Whole Foods, and Dunkin' Donuts ("When in Rome..."). A gorgeously updated colonial house, tastefully decorated and thoroughly stocked for any need. We have four young children and had several days of wedding events to attend nearby, so we had a particular set of needs unique to that long weekend.
The home is remarkably well-designed to accommodate children. There were step-stools, sippy cups, bunkbeds, toddler bed, and crib, plus baby gates on the stairs, Lemony Snicket among the books, and a gentle natural shampoo in the bathroom. These things stood out to me as a parent, but they were discreet additions. If I had visited without children, I would only have basked in the luxurious touches -- dark wood floors, a subtle scent from a room diffuser, a bar and sideboard ready for hosting, Walden on the bookshelf, a blow-dryer in a bathroom cupboard, and in the basement a large washer & dryer that sing a happy melody. Oh, and the kitchen! Clean and well-equipped for cooking or baking, with essentials like olive oil, flour, & sugar on hand. And a fridge pre-stocked with a few thoughtful items to start us off well, like butter, jam, and cold-brew coffee.
I don't think our visit could have been any better. Perhaps only if we had been able to stay there longer? Janel was a superlative host. Even after we accidentally walked off with one of the bedsheets. My fault; everything looked like wedding clothes as I was packing up the kids early the morning after. But Janel was gracious and took my oversight with ease and good humor.
I'm looking forward to a future visit to the area with hopes we'll be able to stay in this marvelous home again. It was absolutely worth it.
Thank you so so much for such a thorough review of our property. You have captured the experience beautifully. Your family is truly spectacular and it is obvious you run a tight ship. You left our house in the condition you received it. Thank you soooo much for sending the twin sheet back to us and for the delicious chocolates! We look forward to welcoming you back again.
Home & Neighborhood Was Amazing!
Janel was great! She had a ton of recommendations and talked to me quite a while about everything.Not your typical in and out kind of service.
The house was extremely “homey”. The photos describe it very well. Very well update,extremely comfortable in every aspect, & and great location.
20 minutes to Boston and I think it was 30 minutes to Salem.
Highly recommend staying here!
Thank you Mike! We are so happy your stay was enjoyable...we would welcome you back any time.
We had out family, including children, in this house. The fenced back yard was great. The house included everything we needed for cooking and eating. This all contributed to a great vacation and family reunion.
Thanks Monte for your review. We have young kids ourselves and have strived at making staying at our place with kids as easy as possible. I am glad everything worked out and look forward to welcoming your family back in the future!
We loved our stay in this beautiful house! It really was one of the best vacation homes we've stayed in! Everything was stylishly updated, very clean and organized, and we had everything we needed. This was the perfect location to visit Boston and all the surrounding areas, while returning back to the quiet at the end of the day. What a wonderful location, and we hope to return someday! Many thanks to Janel for being an outstanding host, and making sure we had all that we needed for our entire stay!
Thank you for your lovely write up. We would be more than excited to have your family stay at our house again in the future. And, thank you for being outstanding guests!
This property was wonderful. The house was beautiful and comfortably decorated. The house was also spotless and clean. The listing actually understates the quality of the property and area. Check is was very easy, we were even able to check in 2 hours early. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked with everything we needed. This was our first time using VRBO and the owner Janel was very patient and quick with an answer to all of my questions. She made it a wonderful experience.
Thank you, Megan! We are so excited you enjoyed your first Vrbo experience. If you ever find yourself back in the area please be sure to look us up. We would love to welcome you back.
