Boston apartment description

Enter the front door and you're in your home away from home. It's spacious but comforting.
Bedrooms are decked out with comfy linens. Back porch looks at the garden. Eat in the kitchen or the dining room. On chilly evenings have a fire with the click of a switch.

Jamaica Plain (JP) is a neighborhood within the city of Boston. The house has easy access to the T (our public transit system) — a 15 minute ride to downtown. JP has the feel of a small town but it's definitely part of Boston's urban life. The house is just one block from Jamaica Pond (a 1.5 miles loop around the pond) which is great for walking or running in all seasons — biking, picnics or renting a sailboat in the warmer months.

Just 2 streets away is a new Whole Foods Market. Walk less than 10 minutes and you're in JP center with an array of ethnic restaurants, cafes, pubs and retail stores. This home is a great space in a great neighborhood in a great city - all set up for a great vacation

                This house is wonderful. The neighborhood is pleasant and easy going, and the house is in a great place with a very nice park, two supermarkets, corner pharmacy, and train station within half a dozen blocks. Everything was more than we expected. We had a group of 8 staying in the house and were concerned about space before we arrived - don't worry, there is plenty of room. Our entire group was thoroughly impressed with everything and I was congratulated on my choice of house repeatedly over the weekend. We were already discussing booking it for next year on the second day of the trip! The owner, Elaine, has very clearly been doing this a while. Every question we had was already answered in our documentation somewhere, nearly every household good we could need was supplied. We only bumped into her a couple times during our stay but she is very friendly does what she can to make guests welcome. She's easy to reach and very responsive (via email anyway, which was my primary method of contact with her). We're already looking forward to our next stay!

                Owner response: What a great feeling when everyone in the group is happy and enjoyed their trip. And I'm so happy to have them back!

                We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the comfort of this home very much. Lovely neighborhood and close to restaurants, the "T," and the emerald pearl outdoor areas. The house includes all the necessities. The home is very clean and the owner is so very kind. When given an opportunity, we will stay there again.

                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                A very nice old house in an boston suburb. Good connection to bus und metro. We have been 6 persons and there was pretty enough space for us. Big kitchen and dining room. Also 3 nice bedrooms with very good beds. Only the bathroom is old and should be adaptet. But overall a grat stay.

                Owner response: Yes, it's an old fashioned bathroom. Sure would love to update but given the costs, I focus on the charm. Hope that helps.

                The house was perfect for our family reunion in JP gathered from four states for a wedding. The instructions with the lock box were simple, the bedrooms were comfortable and large, the kitchen well stocked and the dining room great for the few meals we enjoyed at the house! The living room coffee table was perfect for our board games. The owner was welcoming and gave detailed information in the notebook in the spacious entry. We enjoyed the restaurant at the end of the street, Canary Row as well as the short walk to Whole Foods. The last night I enjoyed the tapas at Tres Gatos (also a five minute walk). I would definitely return to this house when I'm back in the Boston Area and recommend it to anyone I know traveling to the area.

                Owner response: I'm happy when they're happy!

                This comfortable and charming apartment was the perfect alternative to staying in a hotel for our daughter's graduation from Boston University. Everything was clean and just as described on the website. The location is easy to find, and convenient to Boston attractions. There are restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. We were able to find street parking within 1-block for our two rental cars. I really liked having a "home" type environment for our family group to gather and visit. The owner was accessible and very helpful when one of our family members needed some medical attention. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental.

                Owner response: Love it when it works for a family on a special occasion !

                Our family gathered last weekend to celebrate our son's graduation from Northeastern University, and we could not have been more pleased with our stay here! Three large bedrooms, full kitchen with walk-in pantry, beautiful dining room and living room. The house is a short walk from great restaurants, grocery stores and a pharmacy. It's a bit of a walk to the T-stations, but we rented a car so we could get out to the north shore for some lobster. Easy street parking, by the way! Our host was gracious and accommodating, and we plan to return soon for another visit, as our son is staying in Boston for a while. Jamaica Pond is just down the road, and it's a beautiful place for a walk.

                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, sightseeing.

                Owner response: What a really nice review !! I'm always so pleased when people are having a significant family event and the apartment just adds to it. By the way. . . . closest train stop is about 1/4 mile away BUT there's a bus right at the corner ! I'm happy to provide direction when people are here. Thanks for the great review — I hope it helps others.

                We are 7 people ( 3 childrens and 4 adults). The house was perfect, very clean and very quiet. It's a great place to visit Boston ( 10 mn by walk for the "T"). My children were very happy to find the Easter eggs in the lovely garden. It was very pleasant also to run every morning around Jamaica pond just one block to the house.. Thanks Elaine for your welcome we 'll come back!

                We had a great stay. Not fancy, but nice and Rooms (including beds) very comfortable. Great location to use the "T". Perfect for a family of 6 or 7 persons. Our group of 8 was a bit of a stretch, since all beds are for 2 persons. Our group was multi-generational: parents (2), kids (3) and grandkids (3) including 2 pretty small grandkids, one of whom used couch cushions as a bed on the floor. One bathroom may be a bit of a bottle-neck, but worked out for us. Great location to grocery stores, including Whole Foods (closest and most expensive), Stop and Shop, and Harvest (my favorite and better prices than WF for similar items). Nice selection of restaurants nearby (Thai, Mexican (Purple Cactus), Italian, Veggie, Cafe s, etc. We walked to the Stony Brook T station when weather allowed. Otherwise drove and parked at Forest Hills station. One day, the Orange Line service was interrupted. We caught Bus 39 at Copley and it brought us to the nearest intersection a block from the house. We spent most of our time in Boston, but could have spent a day just investigating Jamaica Plain. We love Boston area and hope to go back when weather is better and more sites open for the season. This trip was officially for business, we added the family/fun part. Would love to stay here again. Elaine was a great host. Very prompt replies, Easy to work with.

                Owner response: It's so great when guests enjoy their stay and found the apartment comfortable. Wish we could add another bathroom but it's just not possible in one of these older Boston houses!

                The house is exactly as pictured. Very clean, quiet, and well stocked. Nice neighborhood with shops and restaurants nearby. Rental went very smoothly. Only two minor negatives: the cable is very limited, without even CNN, ESPN or the Weather Channel, and the lighting is a little dim, making reading difficult in the evenings. Definitely bring a book light!

                Owner response: In response to this customer's comments, we have expanded the cable and put in more lighting. They were right! It makes a difference.
