About The Owner

A Massachusetts native who has caught the travel bug later in life, I have recently enjoyed trips to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy and Russia. Next on my itinerary is Africa! Art and design are in my blood and both my house and garden reflect that. I'm never as happy as when I have an interior design project in the works or some other creative project. My friends often call me The Mayor, referencing the fact that I have a smile, a joke, or a comment for almost anyone I meet, whether it's at the local coffee shop, the gym, or the grocery store. I love travel and look forward to opening my home to fellow travelers.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1996

Why The Owner chose Boston

Jamaica Plain is one of the most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods in Boston. A home to artists, social activists, young families, and long-established residents, it felt like a great place to put down roots.

What makes this apartment unique

I do architectural salvage for a living, which has allowed me to acquire a wealth of unique, unusual pieces from stained glass to mahogany doors. I have spent nearly two decades creating a home that is both functional and beautiful.

Diamond House a must stay!

  • 5 of 5

Diamond House is a beautiful house in a wonderful area of Boston's Jamaica Plains. This rental is very conveniently located near the Boston "T" subway for easy access to almost anything in Boston! Louis, property owner, was very nice and helpful and the property demonstrates his care for his home with attention to details and wonderful hospitality. The steps, into the house and second floor, were not a problem for us, but that may not be true for all. Please, check out Diamond House!

A veritable jewel!

  • 5 of 5

If anything, Diamond House was even more impressive in the flesh than the photos suggest. Louis provided a thorough introduction when we arrived but left us to get on with it. The facilities were superb and everything was spotlessly clean. I can only speak for the bed in the Audubon room but it was extremely comfortable. It's very hand for the T Orange Line (we were entirely on foot) and the surrounding neighbourhood is appealing, with shops and restaurants just minutes away. If you are considering Diamond House, don't delay - book it immediately!

Charming vintage home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Boston (Jamica Plains)! The home was perfect and Louis was the perfect host. The rooms were spacious and we lacked for nothing. It's too bad we didn't factor in more down time to just enjoy this lovely home. The two shower heads made for true, relaxing spa treatment. TV and cable kept us in touch with the world as we relaxed after a day of seeing the sights. We were very close to the Stony Brook station on the T and had no fears of navigating our way home after a late ballgame at Fenway Field. We even had a few few hours before our flight home and we were to get to Faneuil Hall for breakfast!

Louis is a great host! We loved the house. The area is beautiful. It had everything we needed and it is close to the T so we didn't need a car. We loved our trip to Boston!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we saw In the description on Home away and then some. This beautiful Victorian house restoration is surely a labour of love. The flat was very well stocked with all the dishes etc that you would need to prepare a Meal at home. Very spacious and comfortable. LOUIS made him self available for questions about the area or anything else.

I would highly recommend staying here. THANK YOU

Perfect home for our first trip to Boston!

  • 5 of 5

Louis was a wonderful host for my family! The Diamond House was very clean and so comfortable for a family of 4. We were right around the corner from the subway so no car was needed to get around town. Louis was so helpful with restaurant and attraction recommendations. It was a perfect stay and we look forward to coming back again soon! Thanks Louis!
