2 Bedrooms, 50 Yards From Beach, 20 Minutes To Boston
- english, Romanian
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 Lynn
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.

Great location, Great Property, Best Hosts!
We had a family vacation with 4 days in Boston and 4 days in Lynn. Lynn was a good location to wind down the vacation. George is a perfect communicator, and his brother Cornell is a terrific onsite host. Don't think twice, just book it!
I loved Lynn much more than Boston
The apartment is everything we wanted: comfortable, convenient, roomy, and clean. We slept with the ocean breeze coming through our window each night and walked on the Atlantic everyday. From our walk, we had an excellent view of Boston.
George and Cornel greeted us when we arrived (it was a lovely day, and they were outside), helped us inside, and showed us around. Cornel even loaned us t-shirts to wear to the Red Sox games.
Excellent food is available less than a mile from the house; we preferred Christopher’s for breakfast, or Lincoln’s Landing in Swampscott when Christopher’s was closed; Casa Amelia for authentic Mexican food; and Mission on the Bay in Swampscott for the view and delectable eatables. All of these restaurants are within walking distance of the house.
As an older couple new to big-city life and public transportation, we depended on the kindness of strangers to point us in the right direction. Everyone we encountered was very friendly, especially George and Cornel, who, I have no doubt, will make all attempts to be helpful.
A Bit About the Public Transportation:
We rode a silver bus from the airport and got onto the subway going to Lynn. Later we discovered that a blue bus would have been a direct route to the blue subway line we needed. We also began our trip by buying a week’s pass for the bus and subway system (Charlie Card); a week’s pass is the least expensive way to travel. And then we bought separate “Commuter Rail” tickets for a nicer, smaller train that leaves directly from the Lynn bus station. Do not buy too many of these tickets because it becomes frustrating trying to coordinate subway lines with commuter rail lines with bus schedules.
We were told that these Charlie Card week passes can only be bought from real people at the North Station, South Station, and Back Bay Station. Someone else may have better luck with a machine or elsewhere. We bought ours at North Station, which is also where we bought our commuter rail passes.
The Lynn Station (commuter rail line and buses) is 1 mile from the apartment, and we walked the distance more than once. We also Lyfted to the apartment from the Lynn Station to the house for less that $10, not included tip.
We could have also caught a bus just a few blocks from the house to take us to the Lynn Station. Furthermore , if you’re not catching the commuter rail, then ride the bus to Wonderland Station, which is the closest subway.
Stay in Lynn
We were visiting family staying in Nahant - it was a perfect location, George's brother Cornel was a hilarious host, and the space is roomy and clean (had everything we needed!). There are 2 steep flights of stairs to climb so be careful with bringing big heavy luggage to carry up! We plan to stay here again next time we make it back to Boston!
Great time on vacation!
Beautiful house just down the street from the beach. Location was great for our family vacation, as we were heading up to Salem and also down to Boston. George was out of town but his brother Cornell took great care of us. Cornell was a delightful delightful character. Every day he had great recommendations of where to go and what attractions to do. This was our first time on the East Coast. We will definitely stay at this house every time we come back. We recommend to anyone staying in the area.
Beautiful home near Boston
We loved this property and the proximity to the beach. We were here for the Boston marathon and used a mixed of public transport and Lyft to get back and forth from the city. It was nice to be able to walk along the beach for some down time after the crowds in the city. Thanks for a great stay!
Thank you so much for the kind words. The apartment is waiting for you anytime for the same event or vacation.
Cute by the water
We really enjoyed our stay! Here are a few points to keep in mind when deciding.
Location and close to beautiful beach walk - amazing sunrise!
Clean and tidy
Well stocked with bedding, towels, pillows, etc.
View of water from bedrooms
Stocked with microwave, stove, coffee maker, toaster, fridge/freezer, dishes, soap, pots, tea kettle, etc.
2 separate bedrooms
Very responsive and helpful host! :)
Plenty of hot water
Safe area with free parking
Easy drive into Boston
3rd floor, so keep that in mind with stairs if that’s a problem for you. (Wasn’t for us)
The beds are very firm
King bed is actually 2 twins put together
It’s a 100 year old home and smelled a little stuffy but it aired out quickly
I highly recommend this location! Very sweet place!
Thank you for the kind review. I want to mention on the comments the apartment was
a little stuffy: it is because was not rented since November last year and probably the
cleaners didn't leave the windows open for fresh air. The king bed is California style
so is the style which usual in any hotel (nothing improvise).
