OVERALL, A GOOD VALUE.

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. We liked the close proximity to the T. The beds are super comfy. We couldn't wait to fall into them at night after exploring Boston. The internet and cable box were really spotty. We had to keep unplugging the box to reset it to watch tv.we did have to ask for extra towels during our stay.

GREAT PLACE FOR SMALL FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here, along with our daughter to visit my other daughter who lives in JP. Stayed for 4 days and enjoyed all the conveniences of this home. Check in was easy and we really enjoyed the cute front porch. Got a nice breeze through all of the easy-to-open windows. The owner also offers window a/c units if we had preferred cooler air. The beds (and pillows) are all very comfy, even the bunks! No need to bring all those little toiletries because she has so many of them stocked in the bathroom. Kitchen is equipped with a lot of basics in case you want to cook, which we did not. My daughter knew all of the best places to go, so we had that advantage! We would definitely stay again!

LOVELY COZY APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
My parents & I really enjoyed our stay at Olive's. It was a home away from home. The apartment was clean and v cozy. Olive added very nice touches to ensure that the bathroom had shampoo and bathing foam in case we forgot ours, and that the kitchen was well-equipped with all kinds of cooking utensils and cutlery. Wifi is also available, although intermittent at times. Apartment is in a nice quiet neighborhood and within 5-mins walk to the T-station.

CUTE GETAWAY CLOSE TO THE CITY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for three weeks during the summer and really enjoyed it.

The location:
It is very easy to walk to downtown Jamaica Plains, the local subway stop, and parks. Downtown Jamaica Plains has lots of restaurants, both for breakfast or dinner. We felt safe walking during the day but preferred to drive at night. We were also a 15 minute walk from the subway stop. We parked our cars and used this as our primary transportation. Its takes about 20-30 minutes to get to downtown on the subway. However, we were an easy drive from downtown Boston.

Accommodations:
We stayed in the second floor unit. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the dishes you would need and spacious. The decor was modern and warm. Be advised, if you do a lot of computer work, you may need to bring an extra extension cord. Three prong outlets were limited in the apartment.The apartment was clean and very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. The building is kid friendly, so we never felt uncomfortable when the kids were occasionally loud.

The owners:
We never felt like we were staying in someone's home. They did a great job respecting our privacy and responding to our text messages.

Overall:
We really enjoyed the stay and would recommend it. It is a kid friendly building, but would also be a good choice for a non-kid family, group, or couple looking for a nice get-away.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented several places in the area over the last few years and this was, by far, our favorite. The location was ideal - close and convenient to everything. The apartments (we rented both!) were immaculate and comfortable. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely recommend these apartments and would stay here again in a heartbeat. And we found our new favorite pub in Boston - James Gate, just down the street - excellent food! (One slight caution: the stairs are winding and narrow. If you have difficulty with stairs or have extra large bags, you may want to take this into consideration. It was not an issue at all for us - but could be for some)
