Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a great location. We never rented a car. There were 6 in our group-with three children ages 11-14. We were able to catch a bus in front of the condo and easily get to the subway station or downtown. The deck was very nice and we were able to sit outside most evenings after a busy day of sightseeing. There were 3 adults and 3 children and the accommodations worked very well. The internet worked well for us. The owner answered any questions I had and checked with us in the middle of our week long stay to see if we needed any thing. There were convenience stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. We purchased a 7 day link card and took full advantage of it. There was a walking path around Jamaica lake within 3 blocks which made for a nice evening stroll. Grocery stores were on the one bus line which made food shopping easy. I would recommend this property to someone going to Boston on vacation.

Boston Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our group(5 couples) spent a week at this property it was great. House was very nice. Easy access to the subway about 5 t0 6 blocks but felt safe in the neighborhood walking around. If any complaints steps were a little noisey and need better shades on french doors in bedroom on main floor for privacy. Plenty of room in the main living space, really nice kitchen and deck area. Had a great time and price was good.Would Rent again from this owner in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: It was really nice to read this great review especially after our first poor review in 6 years of renting our home right before this one. We really want everyone to have the every best time and get everything out of a house rental they can and that is why we are constantly upgrading and checking on the home. I hope this traveler in fact does return and we are happy to offer all returning guests a discount!!!

Really disappointed - we had to move

  • 1 of 5
We booked the apartment for 6 nights and felt compelled to move to a hotel after just 1 night. We were extremely disappointed with the general condition of the apartment and its contents - from a cracked window pane to missing window locks to a flimsy back door to a ripped sofa there were so many examples which rendered the description and the pictures online very hard to recognise. We felt there was also a huge mismatch between the apartment and its relatively high cost. We were travelling with children (aged 11 and 7) and felt concerned for their security, hence our immediate decision to move out as soon as possible. Even for those without children the windows (one had a makeshift strip of wood to compensate for a missing lock) in particular represented a real concern in terms of any valuables being safe. The apartment also suffered from a surprising lack of privacy (upstairs neighbours using BBQ right outside our living room). Finally we just weren’t impressed with the level of cleanliness on show - the windows, bath, downstairs shower and outside deck in particular were very unappealing. We doubt the average renter would feel satisfied with any aspect of the apartment in its current state.

Owner's Response: This review is very hard for me to read as I feel bad that the guest had this experience but in all honest I do not understand how they had less than a VERY good experience. My cleaning crew is very very thorough and the property is renovated to a very high standard and has been featured on 3 design sites over the years. As you can see from the 10 other reviews EVERYONE else has been more than pleased and we have returning guests all the time.

Couldnt have been any more enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
I personally Loved my stay at this Boston house. You will run into no problem staying in this unit as it is described perfectly in the description. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs with queen size beds, one bed room on the first floor and 2 beds in the basement area making this house PERFECT for what my group needed. There was a total of 5 men staying at this house and had a few friends crash on the multiple couches around the house. There are about 3 couches where friends can sleep if couches are their thing. (easily can sleep 13 people around the house)

Overall I recommend this house for any one for any occasion!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was the perfect setting for our girls weekend in Boston. The train is an easy walk and getting home was a reasonable cab ride. The open concept on the main floor was amazing, we could all sit down together for dinner and played cards all night. The back deck is beautiful! Wish we were there in warmer weather to enjoy it. Everything is very up to date and clean. The owner was easy to work with and get ahold of for any questions. I would highly recommend this rental!

Fantastic property in amazing JP

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a brilliant 4 week stay in this beautiful apartment. The location is fantastic - easy access to the rest of Boston with the use of the T just a short walk away. Buses run through centre street but traffic can be heavy so highly recommend using the trains instead.
Jamaica Plain itself is a wonderful neighbourhood with everything you could need on the same street as the apartment - highly recommend JP licks - best ice-cream ever!! and wonderful walks around Jamaica Pond.
The house itself was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you could think of is in the property. The neighbours are lovely and even help with recycling and putting the trash out! The internet provided in the apartment was brilliant - even getting a strong signal in the basement bedroom.
The configuration of the house works well with 2 double beds downstairs in the basement with a beautifully big bathroom, 1 double room off the kitchen with the main bathroom next door and a further 2 double rooms upstairs.
Jeremy has been fantastic to deal with and any queries we may have had were quickly and efficiently answered.
I would highly recommend this apartment to people staying in the Boston area. The only thing I would possibly suggest to Jeremy would be for thicker curtains/blinds to be fitted in the bedrooms to keep the sunlight out and for extra privacy.
A wonderful stay - thank you!!

JP is a very artistic lively neighborhood with over 15 great restaurants within 5 minutes walk from home, cafes and shops steps away from the house.
