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

Great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Elaine’s home in Jamaica Plains. The House was clean, cozy, and walking distance from some great restaurants. Jamaica pond is right around the corner and was a beautiful place for a morning run. Elaine was extremely responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend this home and if we go back to Boston, this would be the first place I would pick to stay.

Beautiful historic home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home has all the original details and is very well maintained. Plenty of room for a large family dinner in the dining room, and with 3 bedrooms, plenty of room to spread out! A wonderful hostess, a quiet neighborhood and a 15 minute walk to the subway made this a perfect location for our family!

Boston College visit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was cozy, clean, and convenient. Elaine was extremely accommodating to our family. The place had everything a family of 4 would need. The location was great also. Street parking was easy, but it is also close to the T or bus.

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 35 Moraine! Elaine was a great hostess - she had the house ready for an early check-in and was there any time we needed anything. Great central location, near downtown Boston but a great hub for our daytrips to Salem, Martha's Vineyard and Maine. Quiet, safe neighborhood. Would definitely recommend for families.

Owner's Response: It is wonderful that this family took advantage of the location to visit so much of the area around Boston as well as much of the city itself. Great family ! And I think they had a great time.

Great neighborhood - spacious and lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Elaine has been a wonderful host!!! Thank you for everything! We loved it to explore Boston from here. The apartement was spacious, clean and well equipped. We liked the porches in front of the house and the back garden, the cosy and comfortable beds, the kitchen and the fireplace in the living room. Jamaica Plain is such a nice neighborhood - a real discovery that completed our view and picture of Boston. It was a great pleasure to walk around. Grocery Stores, restaurants and T are not far. Recommendable!!

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.
