We stayed here for the week of the marathon. Maria and her husband were so very friendly and accommodating. We didn’t have any issues and the property was in excellent condition. It was about a 5 minute walk from Green Station on the orange train line. We used the train all week and were able to go to Boston very easily. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.
Great value for Boston!
Short walk to the Orange Line, clean, good internet, safe / quiet neighborhood.
Really nice place and the area was great
A little smaller than expected from the pictures but it was very cosy and very clean, the local area is brilliant and lot's of things to do very close, Boston is the best city for culture so JP was a great location,
Nice and cozy
This apartment was clean and comfortable. It was close to where our kids live and walking distance to many stores and restaurants in JP. The owner was easy to reach and very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises. Thanks so much Maria!
The place was clean and had all the amenities we needed. Having coffee beans on hand was wonderful. We met Maria and she was very nice. They had a book with places we could go to and enjoyed Jamaica Plain. We would recommend staying there again.
So very welcoming and great location!
What a wonderful place to stay!! Maria was an amazing host, we felt so very welcome! The house is great and there are wonderful amenities. We have a toddler and Maria had a pak n play, highchair, safety gate and there were even sippy cups! it was like a miracle. Our bigger kids loved the sidewalk chalk, stock of games, hot cocoa and kid videos! The off-street parking was great and we were able to walk to Bella Luna Pizzeria, the T stop and Jamaica Plain. A short drive to all parts of Boston and so many great adventures. We are so grateful for this wonderful space.... Would definitely stay here again when we come through Boston and recommend it to anyone. Thank you, Maria!
