We really enjoyed our stay in Manchester-by-the-Sea and never went near the water!

  • 4 of 5

Because we came to MBTSea for work reasons, our POV is slightly skewed. Working 14-16 hour days on the North Shore presents its challenges. This location was good for my roomate and I as we never traveled more than 25 minutes to all the locations we had to work. Because of where the house is located, in a neighborhood, it was a good place to sleep during the day when we worked late. Because its only two minutes to downtown we could easily roll out and get coffee, or breakfast, or groceries or supplies at the hardware store. Working long days we took full advantage of the hot tub. Bo was friendly and respectful of our privacy at the same time. We didn't spend much time at the house, but we wanted for nothing. It was great to be able to do our laundry while living away from home for six weeks. And the off season pricing was great for our budget. We will absolutely recommend Bo's place, or claim it for ourselves, should we have a need for work in the area again!

Great location, needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The location of the apt was really great- 10 min walk to town, 15 min walk to the beach- we were super happy about that. Bo was also a very kind host that greeted us when we arrived.

The apt itself does need some attention. When we arrived, the overhead fan in the main bedroom was not functional (there are no ACs). We were also looking forward to using the hot tub but when we arrived it was dirty and unable to be used (dirt, dead bugs floating in it). We never mentioned this to Bo because we didn't want to complain, but would have expected it to have been clean and ready for use if advertised as an amenity. the apt needed some cleaning/refreshing.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and it was a very convienient spot (with a single parking spot which was great). We did, however, feel as though the apt was not prepared for our stay.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately it is terribly unfair when guests do not tell me when things break as it gives no time between guests to repair them. The pump in the hot tub was fixed the moment I found it not working. It would have been addressed right way had I been informed. The ceiling fan as well. I wish these things were addressed when they were first an issue as we strive to maintain the property to its full potential. I do everything I can to make every guest feel welcome and at home. I go out of my way to fulfill any request and provide all that is needed. I am sorry to see this review as I went beyond to accommodate the extra member of your party at no extra charge. It would have been nice to know there would be an extra.The property is cleaned by a professional company between each visitor and they did spend the usual time cleaning. They had bleached and left the linens on each bed as they always do so I'm not sure what was left unclean. I can only hope that while at the next place you stay, you inform the owner of the issues you come across instead of saying nothing until given the chance to write a review.

Very, very nice

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely visit to Manchester by the Sea. Bo's downstairs rental is lovely. We had three separate beds, lots of windows to let in the light and ocean air, a nice kitchen, separate living room and anything else we needed. Bo was a generous and thoughtful hostess. She helped us with everything we requested. The town center was a few blocks and we even walked to the beach for 4th of July fireworks. We had a fantastic time and I would recommend this rental to all!

Fantastic Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, convenient and very accessible. We were really pleased with the rental and especially the location. Bo was very accomodating (even had dinner waiting on arrival) ... we would highly reccomend this rental to anyone looking to stay in Manchester for a very reasonable rental fee. It should be noted that we were able to bring our dog which was a huge plus too. Thanks for a great time!!
