About j.j. lomartire

We are two artisans who created a unique duplex in the heart of the Boston (before the south end was cool) and lived there for 28 years before moving out of the city and onto the next project.

j.j. lomartire purchased this apartment in 1983

Why j.j. lomartire chose Boston

In 1983, the South End was not what it is now. It's the largest victorian neighborhood in the United States and it was filled with buildings suffering from benign neglect. The late 70', early 80's began the renaissance of the South End and now you can see the results of all of the work that has been done to this neighborhood.

What makes this apartment unique

This entire building was a gut rehab, even the first floor was removed and repositioned three feet higher than it had been to allow some natural light into the kitchen. Everything in the unit is custom, from the kitchen cabinets to the lovely quarter sawn white oak wall system.

Don't Miss this Huge Dream Place, You'll Love It!

Don't Miss this Huge Dream Place, You'll Love It!
  • 5 of 5
By far, this was the coolest, most spacious, and creative space we've ever stayed. J.J. is an extraordinary host, very responsive and helpful. From the moment we opened the sliding wooden door, we were hooked. The place is huge and clean and the decor kept us smiling. The camel, barber chair, moose head, great original art, brick walls, and hilarious dining table have to be seen to be believed. All those fun touches were a bonus to the very comfortable bed, incredibly well-stocked huge kitchen, and cozy living room. Since there were only 2 of us, sometimes we lost each other in this crazy loft. We kept opening doors and finding more surprises: a giant closet, nice-size bathroom with tons of fluffy towels, a second half bath, and washer/dryer (which we used). The apt is a bit dark, but great for sleeping in and very quiet, despite a neighborhood bar right next door. The info notebook J.J. has in the apt is really helpful. We used the recommendations and dined at delicious Petit Robert Bistro just down the block (we were lucky to get a last-minute res on Open Table on a busy Friday night) and famous Giacomo's next door - great food, friendly service. We were sorry that highly recommended Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe a few doors down is permanently closed. We loved this South End neighborhood, close to the T and Newbury Street and great for walking among the historic brownstones and tree-lined streets. If we lived in Boston, this would be our 'hood. J.J. and Neal turned a former historic storefront into the finest and coolest vacation loft ever.

Art! Crafts! Style! Roomy and Funky!

I Love This Place! Unique doesn't begin to describe it. Funky? Kitchy? Artsy?
Around every turn is a surprise, from a life sized camel (!), to a portholed bathroom, to original artworks, this apartment is an utter delight. On two open divided levels, it is airy tho a bit dark. Re-designed and built by the owners from the studs out, it was obviously a work of love. Thanks J.J., a lovely hostess.

Boston's South Ends Best Kept Secret!

Boston's South Ends Best Kept Secret!
  • 5 of 5
This open floor plan duplex located in Boston's South End speaks volumes with handmade furniture and art throughout! The furnishings are truly beyond words as you will marvel at the unique touches of this home. The painstaking measures the homeowners took to preserve the original feel is amazing including the stone/brick walls and gorgeous wood work. This home is well appointed with everything that you will need to make you feel home away from home. We cannot say enough about the homeowners as they were just an email or phone call away to answer any questions throughout our stay. This is a phenomenal attribute when vacationing in an unfamiliar area.
The location of this duplex was amazing as you are within walking distance of dining, parks, and Boston attractions. We stayed at this property while attending a conference at the Marriott in Copley Square which was only minutes to walk from the house. We enjoyed the proximity and quality of the food from Giacomos and Anchovies located right outside our door for dinner. The aroma of these fine restaurants can lure you right through their doors. Unfortunately for us Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe was closed as the sign read "gone fishin'!" We also tried The Five Horses Tavern about 5 blocks down on Columbus Ave. which was a nice place for dinner and drinks and provided outside dining which was equally enjoyable on a beautiful Boston evening.
In Copley Square we visited Kings Bowling and Billiards as well as Five Napkin Burger and the Cheesecake Factory that provide outside dining.
There are many beautiful parks in Boston within walking distance of the house. We especially enjoyed the Boston Botanical Gardens with the swan boats. We took the duck tour and had quite the animated tour guide known as the Joker from Las Vegas. The tour was fun and provided a lot of historical information about Boston.
Being a pet friendly property was an attribute that we were especially grateful for. Our golden retriever, Charlie, absolutely loved it and adjusted quite well to city life. There is even a dog park within a block of the house as well as a unique dog store where Charlie got biscuits decorated like whales.
We highly recommend this home on Columbus Ave. Should your travel plans take you to Boston you do not want to miss out on the opportunity to stay here. Undoubtedly, if we are in the area again we certainly hope to be Neal and J.J.'s guests. We cannot imagine a neater place to stay than this in all of Boston!

Loved this wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5
After a little fidgeting around trying to open the key lockbox we got into the apartment and were immediately blown away by how terrific it is. There is plenty of space--there were only 2 of us and we had plenty of room to roam. We were in short walking distance to Copley Square, Prudential, Boylston Street for shopping, fabulous Newbury Street for boutiques and art galleries, and more. The T (subway) stop is Prudential on the Green Line. It's easy walking distance to Back Bay Station and just a $10 cab ride to South Station. A great little French Bistro to try--just 2 blocks away on Columbus Ave.-- is Petit Robert. The food is good, the service is great, and the price is right. You can walk all over Boston from this location in the lovely South End, so leave your car at home. There are some stairs in the loft, so it's not exactly wheelchair accessible. Also, the crowd from the very popular bar next door can get a little noisy if you're sleeping in the front of the loft, but you can't hear anything f you're in the back. The place is as listed--or maybe even more special than the description. Look at the picture of the cool "Oscar Award" table in the den and the fabulous butcher block table. There are too many net things to describe. We walked all around the area after dark and felt perfectly safe since the neighborhood is quite lively. The owner communicated quickly and thoroughly and everything was spotless when we arrived. All the amenities, plus a full kitchen means you just have to pack your clothes and a toothbrush. (If you forget anything, you're with steps of grocery stores, liquor stores, pharmacies, drycleaners and anything else you might need. There's a great four-poster bed, a queen convertible sofa and a daybed for sleeping. I not only would recommend it, but I'm also going back next time I'm in Boston. This loft is EVERYTHING!!!!

Loved this quirky and clean rental

  • 5 of 5
I loved this place. The owners are artisans whose handiwork is situated around the flat. Despite its proximity to downtown (Copley Place was about 1/3 mile away), the neighborhood was quiet with a basketball court, walking corridor, and dog park nearby. The owners were helpful with suggestions and stocked the refrigerator with water bottles. We did not have problems with street noise except for one very brief incident at closing time of the bar next door (and only the guest who stayed in the bed near the front heard that). Two doors down, we recommend Charlie's, a breakfast and lunch place that has been around for 70-80 years and served Presidents (but cash only).
