My Favorite Rental

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed our 5th week+ visit to Boston and Olive's beautiful flat. Olive is wonderful, and this is by far my favorite rental not only in Boston, but anywhere!

The Lee St flat is perfect for our family of 5 (kids aged 12, 10 & 8). There is a gem of a backyard with a beautiful porch to enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Jamaica Plain is a wonderful city neighborhood, quiet and safe with plenty of playgrounds and excellent restaurants just a few minutes walk away (This trip we loved the World Spice Cafe, Chilacates Mexican Street Food, and JP Seafood Cafe, but it's almost impossible to pick a bad place!)

The Green St. T-Station is very close by (5-7 minute walk), making this the perfect home base to enjoy all of Boston. Street parking is available, but you definitely won't need a car in Boston!

Would book again!

  • 5 of 5

This rental in JP exceeded expectations. My husband and I are locals and booked for our parents who were coming to Boston at the same time. It was a perfect gathering place, very clean and safe, and easily accessible to the T. Quick ride in to the center of Boston! Olive was very responsive and helpful to any questions we had. The outdoor space was beautiful as well! Would definitely recommend this VRBO!

Nice place, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We were at this place for a week with our 3 kids and it was perfect. The house is clean and bright. There is an awesome backyard with a deck and toys for the kids. There are also some toys for the kids inside the house. There are 3 nice playgrounds at walking distance. There is free parking on the street. Access to the subway/train is a 10 minute walk and about 20-25 to downtown with the train. Owners seem very nice and helpful.

Amazing location that is very family friendly!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Close to the city. Pictures are accurate. Lots of parks and playgrounds within walking distance. Owners thought of most everything ...even toys for the little people. Happy that our family dog could accompany us on our trip.

Great area to stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a really enjoyable stay in Lee Street. Excellent area, within 10-12 minutes walk of the nearest T-stop [I'm sure it took longer to walk each time we went there!]. A very quiet neighbourhood with some decent bars within easy walking distance.

The property was in excellent condition and as advertised - the photos actually make it look lighter than it actually was but that isn't really a criticism!

I always like to leave comments about improvements that would make the stay better...

The air-con units are only in the two bedrooms so the main rooms were often warm - but the temperatures were excessive for the time of year.

The lighting in the kitchen was a little dark - not a huge problem but sometimes when cooking breakfast it seemed a little dim as the stove had no light above it.

The Wi-Fi seemed a little temperamental at times.

The "Welcome Information" needs updating a little - as Olive and Family no longer live on the top floor - so ringing the bell didn't allow us to speak to Olive to say Hi!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lee Street. The property has retained beautiful original features and the owners have chosen unique items of furniture.

I loved sitting outside every morning and evening and felt a million miles from the city despite being so close.

Perfectly positioned for our stay for visits to Downtown Boston and Cambridge by 'T' and Nantasket and Cape Cod by car. We walked to local shops, restaurants and the beautiful Jamaica Pond.

I have never met such friendly and helpful people as those I met in Boston, and particularly in Jamaica Plain.

My son is there for 4 years - I can't wait to come back :)
