Strongly recommended!

Very comfortable, very convenient to both Boston and Salem. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. One drawback- the only drawback- was the stairs to the 3rd floor- treacherous!

Absolutely perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodations. Quiet neighborhood and the house is comfortable and extremely well maintained. My only regret is we did not take the time to cook a meal in that fantastic kitchen. This is an unbelievable find and so close to the city.

Great stay in Melrose, MA

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Greg's Melrose house! He was a joy to deal with and even checked in with us to make sure everything was going well. The house is as described and in a quaint town with good resturants, close enough to downtown Boston and situated to do day trips to Maine, New Hampshire, Salem, Plymouth and Cape Cod. We would definately stay again if we visit the area!

A good place to stay if visting the Boston Area

  • 5 of 5

I rented this because my Venturers (Part of the Boy Scouts(14-20 year old coeds)) wanted to go to the Boston area. We chose to stay here because it was a short distance from all the area we wanted to visit which included Boston, Salem and Concord/Lexington.

We didn't stay inside very much. The kitchen was nice and had everything needed. The bedrooms were fine. Working with the owner was fine. The only minor issue is the kitchen is slightly elevated and we all tripped once going into when we first got there.

Family Time Well Spent

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had our three children, and twin two year old granddaughters at this wonderful house for 4 days and nights. This was our first experience renting a house versus usually staying in hotel rooms, but by all being together, it made us feel like we were at home. The house was very clean, offered lots of space, and was close to everything. The beds were comfortable, and the bedding and pillows were very nice. Greg, the property owner, was easy to get hold of, and answered texts or phone calls immediately. I would definitely rent this home again. Thanks for making it available to us Greg.
