  • Great family vacation home

    "My family of 14 stayed in this home and we had a wonderful time! This home had plenty of space for everyone to sleep and everyone had a bed! The bedrooms were all fairly large and there was plenty of space to relax and hang out. There were 2 living room spaces to relax and unwind in the evening. A spacious dining room area with a wood burning stove(that we did actually did use to warm up a bit one morning) and plenty of seating. There were 3 showers and 4 toilets, which actually worked out just fine for everyone and the water pressure and hot water was just fine! The kitchen was fully equipped with all your cooking needs with a regular coffee pot and a kuerig. The home is older, but definitely has all the updates and updated, nice furniture. It was very clean. There was also seating in the back yard, with chairs and a picnic table along with a gas grill. The home's location was close to the downtown area in Salem(a couple blocks and a walk through the park). There was a great Pizza place just a couple blocks away called Amazing Pizza....delicious and friendly owner! The commuter train was in walking distance to the house, maybe 10 minutes and we used that for 2 days to get to Boston and back. We took the train($7pp to the north station in Boston) and then had to switch trains depending on what part of town we wanted to go to. We did take an uber to the USS Constitution once and the one way trip was $77! The train was much easier and convenient. You would not necessarily need a car depending on where you wanted to go. However, we did have one car for our group and did use it to run to the grocery store, which is probably not as walkable(except CVS and other shops). We also took an uber from the airport and the cost was about $35/45 vs $65 for a cab(we had one of each) and the ride from the house to the airport is about 45minutes. Cole, the owner, was delightful to work with and replied to emails within a couple hours to a day. We would definitely consider returning to this home if we vacationed in this area again!"

  • Best VRBO stay so far

    "My husband and I stayed in the apartment for 11 days while our son was finishing up the Berklee Five-Week program and I could not have been more pleased. The apartment was cozy without feeling cramped, and it had everything we needed, including for cooking. The lack of a TV was not an issue, since we used the fast wifi for streaming services. The shower took a little bit of figuring out on the first day but as long as the water is on full blast it heats up right away. And the air conditioner was fantastic on some of Boston's most muggy and miserable days. The bed was super comfortable, and there was ample space for storing clothes. As other people have noted, the owners of the property are friendly and hospitable; the apartment had fresh flowers and chocolate bars when we arrived, and being able to use the house's laundry facilities meant that we could stay as long as we did just using carry-on luggage. The apartment is incredibly centrally located, just a block off Mass Ave, so the Number 1 Bus and the T are within easy reach. We also loved H-Mart, the nearby Asian grocery store that is a two-minute walk away, and were in there at least once a day. The one thing I would recommend to people contemplating a stay here is: bring some foam earplugs. The place can be a little bit loud on the weekend depending on what is going on in the surrounding area. There is a parking lot that abuts the property in the back and one night some teenagers were having a rap battle with amplified music! But once I put in earplugs I couldn't hear a thing."
