About Lisa Fliegel

Art Therapist and trauma specialist.

Lisa Fliegel purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lisa Fliegel chose Egleston Square

I love living in my home for its close proximity to public transportation. I love living in a community of artists with vibrant arts entertainment and varied ethnic restaurants close by. I love the light!

What makes this condo unique

The Arboretum and Jamaica Pond are urban treasures that balance city living with scenic nature preserves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Lisa, Thanks so much for staying in touch with us. As you know, I

feel like I made a new friend when I rented from you. I love your home.

Kate and I felt so cozy and had such a good time. One rainy night we made

an awesome crab soup and just chilled. Kate slept upstairs and I pulled out

the sofa downstairs. Both were equally comfortable. We walked to several

great restaurants in Jamaica Plain, and downtown Boston was close and an

easy drive. Great to have a parking space at your condo. Got to the Museum

of Art twice. The bus lines and the T are all close by. City Feed was a

favorite for lunch. We also enjoyed a tour of the brewery. What can I say?

Jamaica Plain is just a wonderful place. Your neighbors were fabulous, the

arboretum was within walking distance (long walk along Jamaica Pond but we

had fun) and our week was perfect. I'm looking forward to staying with you

Very quite neighborhood. Nice place.

  • 5 of 5

Lisa received us late at night 11:40pm and was very gracious. She showed us the loft and how everything worked. There was condiments, coffee, tea ect. For our use. We had no problems during our stay. Everything was about 20 minutes away. A great central location.

Great Stay in Jamaica Plain

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at Lisa's place. The place is very close to the subway and the Sam Adams brewery. The apartment located in great community of artists with nice neighbors. I will definitely stay here again if we every get back to Boston. The place is great for a couple or a small family but I think its too small to accommodate more than that. One tip, we struggled initially to find a high quality grocery store nearby. Then we found Roche Bros downtown. They are located in the subway stop downtown. So although its farther to go its alot more convienent as long as you have a subway pass.

Spacious Loft in Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic 3 night stay in the Artist's Loft. It was exactly as advertised, except the pull out couch was a bit uncomfortable. The metal bar that goes underneath the mattress creates a large bump. Otherwise, the loft had everything we needed and was only a short walk to the orange line. We were so close to downtown, yet we were in a quiet and more relaxed neighborhood. My two young children loved all the playgrounds in the area! I will never stay in a hotel again. Finding Lisa's loft on HA inspired me to find similar accommodations in the future. Lisa and her neighbor Bob were great to work with. Both communicated in a timely manner and made our stay seamless. My one critism is that when I emailed Lisa following my stay to say thanks and to check in on a few things, and she never responded. Perhaps an oversight, as communication was good up until that point.

Owner's Response: Alison! Thanks so much for you feedback. I apologize if you did not receive my email response. My email often gets sent to junk because it is so convoluted. ( I actually had sent you an invitation to my book reading at the marble house project where I am currently a resident in Dorset Vermont. It sounds like its time to get a new mattress for the sofa bed! I am sorry for any discomfort and will purchase that immediately. Thanks for the helpful feedback and I loved having you! Lisa

Feels like a second home that we wished we owned!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed in this cozy loft apartment to visit our daughter who live nearby. It's a spacious comfortable home that is walking distance from some great eateries. Will will return!
