Boston Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bdrms, 1 bath, sleeps 8, living rm w/ gas fireplace, ding rm, full kit, porch

Enter the front door and you're in your home away from home. It's spacious but comforting.

Bedrooms are decked out with comfy linens. Back porch looks at the garden. Eat in the kitchen or the dining room. On chilly evenings have a fire with the click of a switch.

Jamaica Plain (JP) is a neighborhood within the city of Boston. The house has easy access to the T (our public transit system) — a 15 minute ride to downtown. JP has the feel of a small town but it's definitely part of Boston's urban life. The house is just one block from Jamaica Pond (a 1.5 miles loop around the pond) which is great for walking or running in all seasons — biking, picnics or renting a sailboat in the warmer months.

Just 2 streets away is a new Whole Foods Market. Walk less than 10 minutes and you're in JP center with an array of ethnic restaurants, cafes, pubs and retail stores. This home is a great space in a great neighborhood in a great city - all set up for a great vacation

Nice stay in Boston!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at this Jamaica Plain home in Boston. It's really well located near a strip of restaurants and some shops, very close to Jamaica Plain pond and a Whole Foods (expensive but their deli is nice for an out of towner) and just a few quick minutes to the T. The whole house is decorated really well and you feel like your in someone's nice place, not a VRBO. And the house had a pack and play portable crib and high chair which was a huge help with our toddler. The only little complaint is that the kitchen was may be a little lacking on some cookware but it did have a selection of other kitchen pantry necessities. We'd definitely come back!

Owner's Response: I will definitely need to check in with this guest about the cookware. I hope they found the pots and pans and frying pans in the lower cabinet! If more is needed, I'll most certainly add them. All in all, I'm glad they had a good, comfortable visit.

Warm welcome

The eight women enjoyed staying in this house. Jamaica plain is a great little city with everything you need and want. Couldn't ask for more from Elaine she was always helpful. Would stay here again.

Quiet, comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5
The home is very charming with loads of character, as you'd expect of a home that's nearly 100 years old. There were five adults staying in the home for our trip, and everyone had comfortable sleeping arrangements and enjoyed lounging in the living room in the evenings. The kitchen was well stocked, too, which was a nice bonus, and it was nice to sit in the back yard or front porch to enjoy our morning coffee. The Stony Brook transit station is a short walk down the street, providing easy access to downtown Boston, and Jamaica Plain was a fun neighborhood to explore on its own. There were some really great restaurants within a few minutes walk. The home owner is super friendly and helpful, and the fact that she lives in the flat upstairs means she's close by if anything comes up. We would stay here again without hesitation.

A peaceful stay within easy reach of the City.

  • 5 of 5
A clean and comfortable apartment with all amenities in a pleasant neighbourhood with good transport links to the centre of Boston. The apartment was very quiet and yet Jamaica Plain has all the facilities needed for an enjoyable retreat from the City. Take the Orange line from Stoney Brook or Bus #39 to the centre of Boston in less than 30 minutes. Elaine will help with shopping and restaurant recommendations and is close at hand if needed. A great place to stay for families and groups of friends.

Owner's Response: I'm always very, very happy when a guest finds the apartment comfortable and well prepared for them. And I'm especially happy when they enjoy our Jamaica Plain section of the city with all its amenities and easy access to downtown!

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 days in Boston on our roundtrip and Elaines house was definitely one of the best places we stayed. It was very nice decorated, well equipped, clean and spacious for our family (2 teenagers). We especially enjoyed the back porch and garden after a long day in the city. Jamaica Plains seems to be a good neighbourhood and Elaine is very friendly and helpful!
We would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: I love it when people come back to the apartment after walking around the city all day and find it relaxing place to sit on the back porch!

Boston Summer Trip - Group of 8

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 8 that stayed for three nights and we absolutely loved the place. Great location with lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Lots of room for all 8 of us and the beds were very comfortable. Elaine was a great resource for cabs and things to see/visit. Favourite part of the trip but watching the Blue Jays beat the Red Sox's. We highly recommend this house for any large groups. Thanks Elaine, we had a great time!

Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood within the city of Boston that provides a small town feel within the urban lifestyle. JP, as locals call it, is just minutes from downtown Boston by public transportation. It's a unique community, almost completely surrounded by parks, including the Emerald Necklace (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted of Central Park fame) the Arnold Arboretum, Franklin Park Zoo and a protected Urban Wild area. The center of JP offers abundant amenities including restaurants — ranging from take out to 4 Star — in an array of ethnic options. A great place for families, couples and singles.

Let's not forget this is New England. Pleasant car rides in almost any direction take you to the picturesque small towns you've seen on postcards. Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and Vermont are each within an hour's drive. In fact, you can drive to Montreal in about 6 hours . . . and New York City in about 4.

Good spot for a great visit.
