Hi, my name is George and I am a principal software engineer. I have a master degree in computer science and I consider myself a very easy going guy. I like to meet people and make new friends. When I am going in vacation I rent studio/apartment since are cheaper and more comfortable than one room in a hotel. I learned to be a very nice host and to help people renting my apartment.
George purchased this Apartment in 1992
Why George chose Swampscott
Being 50 yards from the beach, 20 minutes from Boston and 10 minutes from the well known Salem city give to the renters to have everything in the same package. The house is gorgeous, very clean and maintained, quiet and family oriented.
What makes this Apartment unique
The house and neighborhood makes all the difference. It is very save going around and on the beach at any hour in the day.

Fantastic stay in a piece of history!
We really enjoyed this stay. According to Zillow this place is 101 years old! It is well maintained, clean, close to the beach and located in an extremely quiet neighborhood. We left the windows open at night, used some extra comforters and could scarcely hear any noise throughout the night. To stay in an awesome house with so much character vs. a run of the mill hotel/motel was one of the many highlights of this visit. George provided directions to stores and restaurants in the area. WIFI was extremely fast for planning our daily activities both north and south of Lynn. A short five mile drive (15 minutes) to the Wonderland transfer station in Revere and we were riding the Boston subway. We will stay here again on our next visit!
Superb rental for Boston and the Beach !
George was the perfect host throughout the booking process and our stay.
The apartment was clean and spacious and worked well for our family group of 4. Its location is perfect for visiting Boston without the hassle of staying in the city. We rented a car and the journey from the airport took 20 easy minutes. Parking was never an issue right outside the house which is located in a very safe and friendly residential neighbourhood 2 minutes walk from a great beach/promenade and park. There a number of shopping opportunities nearby with a large "Stop and Shop" 5 -10 min drive away for all your groceries etc. Getting in and out of Boston was easy. driving in is fine but parking can be expensive so using the T rail service from nearby Wonderland station was great. Park all day safely for $5 and a return ticket was around the same price ! Into the city centre in 10-15 mins. If you happen to attend an event at the TD Garden arena (Celtics/Bruins/Concert etc) look to park at the Science Museum, its 5 min walk away in a safe area and costs £10 on an evening opposed to the large parking garages they recommend at $35-45 !!! We had a great stay in Boston and the apartment made us feel at home and relaxed throughout. I'm sure Lynn is stunning in summer and we'd love to return ! Highly recommended
Great place and excellent price!
My parents and I stayed at this place for 4 nights and they love this place. It's very close to the beach and the price is reasonable. Will definitely recommend this place.
Great location near the beach and mins. from metro
George and his brother were very nice to work with. Due to a slight mix up when we first arrived we actually got to see both apartments. The lower one is very nice and large. The upper one that we eventually stayed in is much smaller but met all of our needs adequately! There was plenty of street parking and we walked the one block to the beach every evening. It was also nice that George included internet and cable in the apartment we stayed in. This home is also a 5 min. drive to the Lynn station that gave us quick access into Boston. It was also easy to take side trips from here up through Maine as well as Rhode Island. Thanks again for making our vacation a positive experience!
Classic Coastal Living for a Great Value
After LOTS of research we found this Perfect place to stay with our family of five. No hotel could compare to the size and price of this big beautiful home. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay here. Safe, clean, beautiful breezes off the coast, convenient to Boston, Classic Coastal living for a great value. Wake up rested in the comfortable beds and there are plenty of bathrooms and showers for getting ready fast in AM to hit the Historical sites. We found driving into Boston and paying for parking ( around $25 average ) nearest to our Section of Touring for the day was the cheapest way for 5 of us to get around. Lots of traffic in town but part of a great experience and we didnt have to figure out the Transit system. We finished each night with a walk along the Beach which is 1 block away and could not have had a better experience. Thanks George and Family
I stayed in this wonderful Victorian home with my family for a few days and we loved it! It is a literally 3 minutes walk to the beach and is in a very nice area of the town. Aside from an option to do laundry (hence only 4 stars) it has everything one could want for a short or extended stay. George was very uncomplicated and responsive. Everything was as described, and everything went very smoothly. As a hint for travelers: there is a ferry service from Lynn to downtown Boston in the summer months - very nice and convenient :)
