Perfect place in Jamaica Plain

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our stay in Jamaica Plain. It was clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Communication with Olive was very easy and she was always very responsive. Would love to stay again.

Artsy Comfortable Place in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay in this comfortable home. It is decorated with unique furniture and artwork, but is also functional and cozy. We traveled only on public transportation, which worked great from here. It was a 7-10min walk to the subway which goes downtown and 3-5min to the bus line that runs past all the great places in Jamaica Plain to shop and eat. There are several good grocery stores nearby if you want to fix some meals in the well-equiped kitchen. We had a great stay here, and would love to return, especially when the weather is nicer.

Really lovely property, cozy & well connected.

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly as it was described in the web, full equipped with everything that you need travelling with your family. Really, really clean and well maintained. I would like to congratulate Olive because of little details as having all the lights turned on when I arrived in the evening. My wife and children get excited when arrived. The neighborhood is really quite and in five minutes you are in a main street of Jamaican Plain with all the services you need, as restaurants, groceries, laundry, pharmacy, church, etc... You also have a train station at 7 minutes walking. The orange line takes you to the downtown Boston in 20'.

If I come back to Boston, I hope, I will come back to Olive's property for sure. I recommended it to my family and friends. And last but not least, the price is really appropriated and balance.

Do not hesitate, this is what you were looking for!!!

Enjoy!

Wonderful and Peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I along with our 2 friends who flew from Chicago had a wonderful and peaceful time! The apartment was very clean and roomy! I love the access to everything we possibly needed for this place! Within great distances from Sam Adams brewery and short drive to Boston city. Very peaceful at night and indeed comfortable. Would highly recommend this place and definitely see ourselves staying here once again! Olive was very helpful in the whole process and helped with anything we needed! A+++

A Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor apartment was perfect for our family of four. It was cute, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Olive was very helpful, especially when our plane was delayed and we didn't arrive until after midnight! She had given us detailed instructions so we had no problems when we arrived. The area where the apartment is located was safe and nice. Public transportation was an easy walking distance which made sightseeing easy! Thanks for a great stay!

Well-Appointed And Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults loved Olive's apartment - it was spacious, clean (my family is picky about cleanliness), and included all of the amenities, including coffee filters! The bathroom was large and beautifully tiled. The front and back yards (which we didn't have time to use) were beautifully landscaped. It's an easy walk to TWO "T" stops and it took only 15-20 minutes to get into Boston. The area is safe and full of diverse eateries, fun pubs, little stores, and ice cream places. After long days of sightseeing, we returned to the apt. and walked to one of the many restaurants in the area for dinner. We stayed for a week and never ran out of places! Olive makes great suggestions for places to eat and things to do in the area. The apt. is on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. The only drawback during our stay were the early morning (4:30 am) footsteps (high heels and hard-soled shoes) of the family renting the unit upstairs - but that's not Olive's fault and it's to be expected in an older building. We would definitely stay here again!
