The SpaceI LOVE meeting people and I LOVE to travel. Having been an AirBnB host and AirBnb guest for a while now, I take pride in being a gracious host. It kind of feels like a little bit of the world comes to visit me in Salem, MA. I enjoy offering those special little touches like ordering locally made chocolates, or caramels, jams and bagels or bread, providing tourist books in your room, fresh flowers available upon your arrival. Hotel quality sheets & towels, are also provided.
NOTE: A television is not provided, but with the high speed internet it is easy to find what you are looking for in terms of entertainment or news on your laptop, computer or device. This is a TV FREE home. Actually, this might be a shock but its kind of nice being off the grid when you think about it.
You get your own small fridge because many visitors stay for at least five days. Of course there is coffee, tea, orange juice and spring water available to quench your thirst.
If I happen to have a pot of home made soup on the stove, I'm always happy to Share the LOVE. I'm am fastidious about food preparation, so I can assure you I continuously wash my hands and surfaces during food prep.
Having hosted guests from 5 different continents is like having the world come to me. It's such an honor to have a 5 STAR Rating in 5 Categories. I think being a Super Host is the bees knees.

I am a professional, positive, open minded, friendly person but I am very, very respectful of privacy. I like to call myself the blue haired goddess of unconditional friendliness. I like conversation but I am not a chatter box. I am well aware of the rich history, fine dining, art and cultural activities Salem, MA has to offer and can easily direct a guest to any place of interest. I also know of Salem's best kept secrets that only locals know of.
I committed many years to having a positive impact on the local art and culture scene in Salem and have a page dedicated to my passion in the book "Legendary Locals of Salem, MA."
I go to Africa to do humanitarian work every few years and have always loved meeting individuals from other places. It is my intention that my guests are comfortable, have a positive experience and pleasant memories.
I make sure I am easily accessible by phone or text if my guests have any questions or are looking for recommendations. The NeighborhoodThis home is located in a very safe & the very desirable Forest River Park neighborhood . The home is walking distance to Salem State University, Forest River Park, Salem 1630 Pioneer Village and downtown Salem. Plus we are only about a one minute walk to a private beach.
There is always plenty of street parking on this extra wide street. Please do not park directly in front of the house unless you are unloading suitcases. The 3rd floor tenants will need to carry groceries into the house and need to park in front of the house. You will easily find additional street parking after suitcases are unloaded. Getting AroundFor a minimal fee of $55 each way and with at least a 24 hour notice I can pick you up and drop you off to the airport if needed.
If you want to rent my car, as long as it is available I can rent it out for $35 per day.
A public bus stop is on the corner of the main street only two houses up from this home and less than 100 feet from the front porch.
This home is easy to get to from Boston Logon Airport with a GPS.
My house is about a 1 minute walk to the beach. Actually the beach is only 500 feet from my home.
It is a 3 to 5 minute car or bus ride, or 7 to 10 minute bike ride, or 15 to 20 minute walk to historic down town Salem, MA.
The Commuter Rail is minutes from the home and a taxi can pick you up at the Salem train depot and drive you to the home for approximately $6 or $7. Other Things to NoteI have a very small, very sweet, well behaved dog named Jam A Jam. He is not yappy and everyone who meets him falls in love with him. Jam A Jam stays in my room at night. When you come into the home you cannot tell that a pet lives here. It looks clean, smells clean and is kept clean. My dog gets groomed on a regular basis.
There is a jacuzzi/hot tub that I purchased for my own physical therapy in the back yard. I am currently extending the use of the jacuzzi/hot tub to guests as something special beyond the accommodations.
As I am just feeling this out, in terms of offering the jacuzzi/hot tub I have priced my AirBnB rooms as if the jacuzzi/hot tub were not a part of the deal.
As long as a shower is taken prior to use of the jacuzzi/hot tub and common courtesy is respected in terms of modesty, cleanliness and holding quiet conversations, then I will be happy to continue to make the hot tub available.
Bathing Suits must be warn.
I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I do. Lets keep it that way for everyone.
Hot Tub is SHUT OFF:
SUN to THUR 9pm to 8am
FRI to SUN 11pm to 9am
