Very comfortable, clean home for our family of five adults. Slept great!

  • 5 of 5

Had our family of five adults together for a college graduation. Had plenty of separate bedrooms and beds to allow everyone their privacy. It's not often family comments on how comfortable the beds and sheets are, but I'll be asking Jeremy if he knows what kind they were. Another positive was window unit in each bedroom which provided great white noise for sleeping. There's a great diner where we had breakfast a block or two away, as well as whole foods and Dunkin Donuts within walking distance. Really wanted to try Ten Tables across the street since it had such great reviews, but they were only open for dinner and we were always out and about. Great place, and Jeremy was very accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent Location in Jamaica Plain

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our college reunion group of 10, this house was clean and comfortable with a small Whole Foods market, CVS store, bakery, coffee bar, ice cream shop and several restaurants within easy walking distance. We loved walking and running around Jamaica Pond, and appreciated having a bus stop very close for forays into Boston. We also utilized Uber and didn't mind the 10 -15 minute walk from the Green Street exit on the Orange Line.

Jeremy very responsive, easy to work with, and answered texts, emails, and phone calls immediately .

Spectacular Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 584 Centre was fantastic. We travelled as a group of 10 guys (bachelor party) and the house couldn't be more suited for us. It was very clean, spacious, and contained pretty much everything we needed from dishes to housewares, clean and comfortable sleeping, and a beautiful yard. The location was perfect.

The owner of home, Jeremy, was excellent to deal with. He made it easy for us from the first steps of booking the trip, accommodated with an early check in, and was very hospitable when it came to advice on enjoying our time in the city. If I had any questions, he was quick to answer with just the info we needed.

I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. As I said we traveled as a bachelor party of 10 - which sometimes is hard to find accommodations for that type of group - but this rental Was the perfect spot for us. It would also we very fitting for a family vacation, reunion, or any other type of vacation.

5 star!

Perfect for a Large Group, Very Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this property for a bachelorette/girls weekend and the house was perfect for our needs. We were a group of 11 and this was more than adequate space for us. This was much more affordable than a hotel. The house was impeccably clean and just as advertised. Jeremy was great to work with, responded very quickly to inquiries and was even nice enough to give us a great dinner recommendation. There were clean sheets and towels just as advertised. In case its not clear from the description there are 2 full bathrooms which we weren't sure about when we read the description. There is a great outdoor space if the weather is nice.

Parking was a little tricky since it is all street parking, we had 5-6 cars and were able to manage. Location is good, its about a $20.00 cab ride to the main part of the city. We also walked a little less than a mile to the Sam Adams brewery which was nice. The area surrounding the house is nice with some cute restaurants and shops. All in all a great option when visiting Boston and I could see it working for a variety of group types!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable and well located but the best part was dealing with Jeremy. He was always reachable, and he gave us great recommendations for local spots to check out (kids' playground, restaurants, dog parks). He also went the distance for us when we forgot some stuff at the apartment by calling the cleaning service right away. The floors do creak a little and you do hear some street traffic from some rooms but you are on a main street with easy access to public transportation. Our two young kids slept really well. We also loved taking long walks around the nearby pond with our dog.
