About Louis Giovanella

A Massachusetts native who has caught the travel bug later in life, I have recently enjoyed trips to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy and Russia. Next on my itinerary is Africa! Art and design are in my blood and both my house and garden reflect that. I'm never as happy as when I have an interior design project in the works or some other creative project. My friends often call me The Mayor, referencing the fact that I have a smile, a joke, or a comment for almost anyone I meet, whether it's at the local coffee shop, the gym, or the grocery store. I love travel and look forward to opening my home to fellow travelers.

Louis Giovanella purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Louis Giovanella chose Boston

Jamaica Plain is one of the most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods in Boston. A home to artists, social activists, young families, and long-established residents, it felt like a great place to put down roots.

What makes this apartment unique

I do architectural salvage for a living, which has allowed me to acquire a wealth of unique, unusual pieces from stained glass to mahogany doors. I have spent nearly two decades creating a home that is both functional and beautiful.

Worth everyone of the 5 stars

  • 5 of 5
The only difference between this picture and what was actual was the abundance of flowers and landscaping that we had the pleasure of enjoying. The rooms were clean, well kept, and very comfortable. The only noise we were ever aware of was the subway noises which "were not" annoying. The subway was 1 1/2 blocks from DH. Louis was a wonderful host and the fresh flowers that he provided were very much enjoyed. I would have no problem personally recommending this property and only hope I get the opportunity to travel to Boston again and get to stay at DH. Louis' travel hints and recommendations were also top notch. Louis as a host and his property are definitely worth the 5 stars.

A beautiful property, immaculately maintained.

  • 5 of 5
Having read all the previous reviews of this property we were excited to stay here, all our expectations were met and exceeded.

Louis is friendly and professional and an all-round nice guy. It was clear from the start that we had made the right choice in staying at Diamond House 2.

There is an Orange Line T stop very close-by which was perfect for us as we didn't have a car.

We hope to stay here again in the future, Louis has set the standard for all others to meet!

Thank you for a wonderful stay it was perfect.

Shines like a Diamond!

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay at Diamond House 2. The description is accurate, very well maintained and the owner provided excellent customer service. We even had fresh flowers! The shower has 2 shower heads which was wonderful. The location was excellent because we used the T and didn't need a vehicle. I would recommend this property to my friends and relatives.

Great Place. Great Location

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the Diamond House. It's a beautiful Victorian with a great location. We loved getting out of downtown and being in a wonderful neighborhood with restaurants and shops close. But, it's still just a 10 min. subway ride to much of the city. Thanks to Louis who was very accommodating and informative. We appreciated all his help and insights. Would recommend to anyone!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
I have known Louis since the mid 90's and this is the first time I have stayed in his lovely home. The house was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. I stayed in the bird room where the linens were so comfy and decor was very homy. The kitchen was so well stocked I was in awe. I didn't get a chance to take advantage of that because Louis prepare breakfast for me every morning (sorry you won't have that luxury). The flower arrangements around the apartment were a great touch and the one before you enter the house was stunning.

The first night we sat on the back porch with a glass of wine and watched the birds in the back yard. You would never know that you weren't in the country, so peaceful and relaxing. I have decided to paint the beautiful red cardinal that was flying about.
The T is very close to Diamond House and a great way to get around the city for sightseeing and eating out. I highly recommend the Gardner Museum for anyone interested. Next time I would definitely plan on lunch at the museum.

I returned to Georgia August 21, and am telling all my friends and clients that if they visit Boston they defiantly need to consider staying at Diamond House. Thanks Louis for making my first trip home in nine years one of the best vacations I have ever had. A great friend and host.
