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!

GREAT STAY!

  • 4 of 5
We were very pleased with the cleanliness, location, and layout of this apartment. It was very well maintained and well stocked with towels, cleaning supplies, bedding, etc. We were close to several restaurants and close to the train. Our stay for the marathon was very good, thank you Olive!

GREAT STAY IN JAMAICA PLAIN - HISTORICAL BOSTON

  • 5 of 5
Myself and two friends had a wonderful week's stay in Olive's apartment. We had everything we needed and Olive was very responsive to our questions and any additional needs. The "T" was close and we were able to go to all points of interest in Boston very easily. Boston is such a historical city there is so much to see. The people were very friendly and helpful and the food amazing. Make sure you go to Legal Seafood. JP is a vibrant little community. We shopped at the Farmers Market and City Feed and Supply for evening meals at home when we didn't want to go out. We became regulars at JP Seafood where the food was great and the staff very friendly. The only negative and it really isn't a negative, but something to be mindful of is the winding stairs to the top. If you have physical limitations, you want to keep this in mind. Overall, we were very happy with our accommodations and look forward to coming back.

BOSTON APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This is a quaint, vintage triple-decker apartment building that is beautifully maintained and appointed with modern furnishings while preserving its antique Victorian charm. WIth convenient access to the Orange Line T, it provides a quiet, convenient, and inexpensive place to stay and explore Boston. There are plenty of local restaurants and a market on Center Street for groceries. The owners were responsive and friendly to work with. We will definitely make this our first choice for accomodations for all our future trips to Boston.

GREAT APARTMENT,FRIENDLY HOSTS,STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
JP is a great area, good restaurants, friendly bars, only 5 mins to the "T". The apartment was everything we required, clean, well maintained, spacious and well equipped, with the added benefit of a balcony to have a morning coffee with a smoke. If your looking for somewhere to live like a local and experience Boston at its best, stay here, you will be glad you did. This was our 13th trip to Boston but its such a great city we will be back and hopefully this apartment will be available.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was great. Fully loaded. Plenty of space for four people and, honestly, room for more. Visited Boston for a convention and this beat the hotel rates and accommodations without sacrificing convenience since the T was only a few blocks away.

While my roommates and I never needed anything, it was clear that Olive was willing to help us if we needed it. If I'm ever in Boston again, I'll consider this space before a hotel.
