We loved this VRBO! It was very comfortable and clean. Updated kitchen is gorgeous. The owners are very responsive. Great restaurants nearby and just a few minutes to walk to the beach. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Dear O'neils, I simply can't believe you left us a 1 star review. I'm very confident it was you that called me prior to your departure thanking me for the wonderful stay and that you were going to recommend our home to your friends back home. Nevertheless never once during your stay did you indicate any issues that you were having, especially knowing that we live upstairs. Our listing in description indicates that there is no cable available only Apple TV and wifi. In respects to your fifth guest there is a queen bed, a king bed and a futon sofa in the living room that opens to a queen size bed with extra pillows and covers within the closets as also listed in the details of our listing, I don't understand how you would be able to say there was only accommodations for two? Also, We have had two guest stay prior and after you and no mention of bugs from them. We thought you were great guests and left you 5 star ratings overall. Thank you and please take your own advice and STAY AWAY as well.

Lynn location

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The location of this rental was perfect. Easy access to Salem and Boston. The apartment was very clean and available parking was a bonus. We stayed here three nights but had a late arrive due to our travel. The hostess was accommodating and gave us privacy but gave us a phone number should we need anything. The reason for four stars is due to very poor lighting in this apartment. I also felt that for little to no cost a garbage bag liner in the trash can, a small container of dish detergent ( Dollar Tree) and maybe two coffee pods for the coffee maker would of been nice.Thank you for opening your home to us.

Neat & stylish

responsive landlord, with linen issue. Would have liked soap in bathroom and kitchen. Simple things like a box of tissues and coffee would have taken off the edge. Lighting in main room could be an issue for older renters.

Convenient location

  • 2 of 5
Verified Stay

Great location. Easy walk to the beach. We stayed 1.5 weeks in August and there were free concerts on Thursdays in a nearby park. The apartment is well furnished. The kitchen is generally well-stocked with cooking instruments, though things like a large baking dish and a can opener would be an improvement. Laundry mat just up the street is clean and had great machines. Food shopping can be a challenge, lots of traffic at times, supermarkets are relatively far. The two window air conditioning units in the bedrooms plus the fan in the living room can make it comfortable for the entire house, though if you like it really cold, it might not be good enough for you.

Our biggest complaint is that we were bitten by insects every night. It began with our son. The owner inspected our son's room for bedbugs but didn't find anything. My son switched to sleeping on the sofa, which didn't help much. Then my wife began being bitten. There were serious bites with intense itching and swelling. This ruined part of our vacation. We consulted a pharmacist, who said they were bites, not an allergy or a virus. No way to confirm the source, but they always appeared after spending a night at the rental, not during our days out and about in different circumstances where we may or may not have used our rental car. Emailed with the owner about the situation but without definitive evidence this occurred at the rental, no possibility of a refund.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our place. We do not like to see unhappy guests but for the most part our guests have been thrilled and gave us 5 stars. I would like to address several issues that were of concern. We do have 3 Supermarkets in the area that are all anywhere from 1/2 a mile to 3/4 mile to 2 1/2 miles from the property which seems like a reasonable distance, names and locations listed for your convenience on welcome message. In respects to the bugs in the house we have had many guests stay at our home prior to your stay and immediately after you stay and it seems like this isolated issue has been a mystery since none of them have every had a similar issue. People have different reactions to bug bites, but as I mentioned this seams to be an unfortunate and isolated issue. We have a cleaning log and purchase log of all items bought for the residence (sheets, pillow cases, towels), in reference to mentioned bed, it is brand new and our bed mattress' are renewed up to every 6 months, depending on usage. Again, sorry for your bad experience but for future stays when vacationing anywhere guests should address issues and on going issues immediately so that we can make arrangements to further look into and rectify them to make sure you leave happy and not looking for a refund. Thank you

Excellent choice when visiting Boston!

My daughter and I spent a week in Lynn as I moved her back to Boston for her co-op. Everything is exactly as described. Only a block from the beach and convenient to the T. Nevin and her daughter are great. Helped us out when our car battery died! I would definitely recommend if you need a "home base" when visiting the area! Easy access to point north as well.
