Great Stay

My husband(who was running in the 2011 Boston Marathon) and I rented this apartment for 7 nights. We thought it would be a good idea to have a place with a kitchen so he could eat what he needed/wanted for his running adventure.

The owner of this apartment, could not be nicer. He was quick to respond to my emails and was very helpful once we arrived. The "summer cottage" (read mansion) next door is Taylor House B & B that he also owns. When renting this apartment, breakfast is included at the B & B.-- a variety of continental breakfast, help yourself cereals, juice, pastry, toast, yogurt, and a daily special. We had friends meeting us in Boston and they were also hosted for breakfast one morning, at no charge. What a generous touch!

The apartment was very clean with one small exception, the bathtub. It just needs a very good scrubbing. Everything else was very neat, very clean! This apartment is at half basement level. Stairs must be climbed to leave the apartment. Very roomy, well lit, sufficient furniture, comfortable bed, well stocked kitchen utensils. And a washer/dryer located across the hall.

We ate at three restaurants within walking distance on Centre Street: Galway House (OK, large portions, bar with tv's), JP Seafood(Asian, very good stir fry), Real Deal (hamburgers, very good). A wonderful Italian restaurant, in Belmont, is Il Casale.

Public transportation from this lovely area(Jamaica Plain) is a bit slow. Although it is located only about 4 miles from downtown and the bus is close to the apartment, the buses stop, it seems, at every block. We miscalculated how long it took to get to our destinations-- typically by 100%. Still, Jamaica Plain is a beautiful and safe area to stay. The neighorhood is filled with gorgeous, huge, old mansions. There is a beautiful pond one block away, with a 1 1/2 mile running/walking trail circling the pond.

We would highly recommend this apartment to friends and family. We were very happy with our stay.

Clean, cozy, well appointed apartment in a beautiful neighborhood near Jamaica Pond. My husband, 15 year old son, and I stayed here during Family weekend at Northeastern U. We took walks in the AM around the pond before eating a fantastic breakfast in the main B&B Victorian house - breakfast cassaroles, home made bread, fruit, cereal, were some highlights. Our hosts David and Dayrl were friendly and informative. Excellent restaraunts in the nighborhood too. Easy access to downtown Boston via Orange T( a few blocks), bus(didn't take, but in know it was there), or just drive down Jamaicaway to Rt 9 (Huntington Ave). Very reasonable and a real treat. Hope to be back!

Me and my wife rented a room at Taylor house for a week of honey moon and we've been treated like kings.
Hosts were incredibly nice and the food was great. So close to the metro that we barely used the car at all.
Nice neighborhood, great athmosphere, superbe setting....what could ask more???

A big thanks for the excellent reception and stay!
