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.

The house and neighborhood makes all the difference. It is very save going around and on the beach at any hour in the day.

beautiful location, communication and apartment need work
This is a lovely location, a block from Lynn Beach. The attic apartment is spacious and mostly well stocked. The two flights of steep stairs are not for anyone with mobility issues. There is a big walk-in closet in the main bedroom, but the light didn't work so it was impossible to use at night. The clothes rack in that closet was mounted at about 8 feet high, so not accessible to me, someone of average height. One of the bulbs in the floor lamp in the living room was also burned out; the ceiling lights in the living room and kitchen are harsh and unpleasant. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was very dirty, literally dripping dust. The backyard is probably more inviting in the summer, but in the winter looked very junky, with collapsed lawns chairs grouped in random clumps around the yard, and things like a bin of aluminum cans near the entry stairs. The instructions for getting into the house were incorrect--the combination for the lockbox was wrong. This was troubling since I arrived on a cold, windy, rainy night. I called the number provided for the on-site host, and he did not answer and the mailbox was full so I could not leave a message. The information from the owner said the bus stop is 100 yards away. It is 375 yards away, a pleasant walk none-the-less. The kitchen was disorganized, with frying pans in three different cabinets (I organized it, so the next user will not experience this). The oven was dirty with both recent, light-colored crumbs on the bottom and crusts of burnt material, as well. Although there was plenty of cutlery provided, all the knives were very dull. Also, there are no measuring cups or measuring spoons, so beware if you intend to cook. In summary, the location is nice (several restaurants within walking distance), the attic apartment has great potential but could use some loving care.
The apartment is not an attic one since on top the apartment is a huge stand up attic. The Victorian houses has the 3-rd floor designed as such and people not familiar with Victorian style take it as an attic apartment.
The walk in closet has a switch to turn the light on and it is working properly.
The clothes rack is high on purpose since the are many people going to weddings and for long dresses they required such a high rack. Normal high rack are in the other 3 closets.
Since the winter almost started the back yard was suppose to be cleaned by cleaners and because of the weather they postponed to clean it and pick up the trash.
The combination key box is correct since was not changed in the last 5 years and I didn't have any objection. Since people are coming with kids the knives are not very sharp to prevent any injuries.
There are two bus stations: one at about 100 yards and the other at around 375 yards.
The stairs a standard with the step high of 8 inch and narrower but in the limits creating the feeling they are steep.
I inspected the kitchen and in my opinion was decent clean probably with the stuff
not well organized. I can higher the cleaning fee and have it probably better but I don't know if it works for everybody.
Please check the other reviews since you can see others opinion regarding the apartment.
Thank very much for the review and I will fix and look more carefully how the cleaners are doing their job keeping in mind they are professional cleaners.
Like the area but will look for newer accommodations next time.
Loved close location to the beach. It was a bit smaller than we had thought it would be but beds were comfortable. A bit of a musty smell when you walk in but not in the apartment itself.
Dream vacation spot
The property was amazing. Had no issues what so ever with anything. The stairs weren't too bad the hallway was narrow but it was very nice. Rooms were very clean and the view from those rooms were amazing. Dunkin donuts and the bus stop to wonderland was about 2 blocks up. The neighbors were super friendly and the beach is 1 block down the road. Had great communication with George and his brother was super helpful. The apartment was good size and the beds were comfortable. Plenty of things to do around the area. Great location! Will rent out again next time we come to Lynn.
Thank you for the kind words and a nice review. You are welcomed any time.
Beware the stairs
Good location for beach and getting into Boston but the two flights of steep stairs would have been a deal breaker if we had known before hand. One of our party has heart problems so the stairs were a real issue.
I just measured the height of steps in the apartment. The standard is 7 and 3/4 inches and at my apartment are 8 inches. The number of steps on a floor varies function on how tall is the floor. My floors have 14 steps (some floors having 16-17 steps) The width of stairs are some inches less which creates the perception the stairs are steep.
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!
Thank you for the review and kinds words. Cornel liked you guys a lot. You are welcomed back any time you want.
