Overview

About the property

3 bdrms, 1 bath, sleeps 8, living rm w/ gas fireplace, ding rm, full kit, porch

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

Fantastic Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

If you're in need of a great place to spend a few days in Boston, this is the place. Elaine was wonderful to work with and her home is a perfect fit. Everything about the house makes a trip that much easier for travelers. Our group had eight people and we fit very comfortably. The house is spacious, clean, welcoming, and has all the things you'll need. I highly recommend!

A beautiful hose in a fantastic location and area.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Elaine. We had a fantastic stay in your house. It was just what we required for our stay in Boston in a lovely quiet area but still only 25 minutes from the centre. The house was very comfortable and well equipped and we loved sitting in the porch in the back garden for breakfast or in the evening. Sorry we didn't get to meet you due to your own holiday but we enjoyed it so much we may well be back ! Alan and family from Glasgow, Scotland.

No issues here. Excellent location to get around anywhere from. Very safe area and no issues at all with walking around to get whatever you may need. Elaine is great hostess and gives a lot of great information as well. Worry free stay.

Beautiful Cape Cod style House in quaint neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very enjoyable experience staying here. Elaine was a wonderful host supplying everything we needed. The house was well kept and nice inside. Great place to come back to at the end of the day exploring Boston's rich history. Quiet and relaxing the night before the marathon. Also huge bonus on street parking. Overall A+

Map

Car: not necessary

Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood within the city of Boston that provides a small town feel within the urban lifestyle. JP, as locals call it, is just minutes from downtown Boston by public transportation. It's a unique community, almost completely surrounded by parks, including the Emerald Necklace (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted of Central Park fame) the Arnold Arboretum, Franklin Park Zoo and a protected Urban Wild area. The center of JP offers abundant amenities including restaurants — ranging from take out to 4 Star — in an array of ethnic options. A great place for families, couples and singles.

Let's not forget this is New England. Pleasant car rides in almost any direction take you to the picturesque small towns you've seen on postcards. Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and Vermont are each within an hour's drive. In fact, you can drive to Montreal in about 6 hours . . . and New York City in about 4.

Good spot for a great visit.
