    Lorna is really adorable. She is very friendly, she represents the soul of Boston.
    The house is very clean, the bedroom is air-conditioned, there are a lot of little shops.
    The subway and the buses are near of the house.

    Hello Gerald,
    I'm sorry that you were not happy during your stay at my house, however, please be honest in your reporting. When you arrived you inquired about having a light breakfast, I offered your wife breakfast she stated that she wanted brewed coffee, I told her I have instant coffee, she said ok, we will go to the store and buy our own stuff, because we have access to a full kitchen. With regards to the room. I apologize for the mixed up. However, on the second day I offered your wife the room that you originally booked. She refused. You forgot to mention that the room you got had a king size bed. I tried my best to accommodate you, and your wife, but all I got were complains. You stayed for three days during that time you had the entire apartment for yourself self. Complete privacy. Thank you.

    Wow! Home from home. Saved the bedt to the last. Wish I had stayed there longer. I have put Boston back on my list to visit and stay with this beautiful family. Very experienced in hosting. Thank you Rob and Lorna for making my experience memorable.

    Hope to see you:)

    I would love to see down at the porch for a couple of hours reading and relaxing.
