Jamaica Plain is part of the City of Boston (4 miles or 15mins ride to downtown) with all of the downtown access while having a unique neighborhood flair. Once the summer destination for downtown Bostonians, JP has plenty of parks accompanied with great variety of local restaurants including Mexican, Japanese, Indian, contemporary American, local pubs/bars, and shops.

Not to be missed - JP is walking distance from Fenway, has the Samuel Adams Brewery, and has multiple transportation options to get to all of the major tourist destinations that Boston has to offer. Just 15mins ride either by car, subway or bus to downtown Boston!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a Mexican-American couple (30's and 40's) who love to travel. We have 3 kids (21,15,6) and this is our primary home. We have collected a variety of objects over the years that we decided to leave them here for your enjoyment. We hope you have a great stay at our Jamaica Pond-side Condo.

Why the Owner Chose Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA, USA:
This is our primary home. We use it as a rental during our extended trips. We really enjoy our home, the location, the quiet neighborhood, restaurants and the proximity to downtown Boston without the noise, we hope you love it too!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
While staying at our property, I love being able to walk to eclectic restaurants just a few steps away. My husband and I like to go out on date nights in downtown Boston and we can always catch the bus or walk to the T station to take the subway I love how quiet is at night. We used to walk around the pond
