About Louis Giovanella

I'm a Massachusetts native who caught the travel bug later in life, I have recently enjoyed trips to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Russia, and 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.

Convenient Location and very Cozy Place

  • 5 of 5
The place is very clean and very well decorated with beautiful fresh flowers. Louis lives in the house, so very helpful when needed. He likes too speak about Boston and Jamaica Plain so you are perfectly informed about what to do or not do.
The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, the subway just nearby.
We had a car so there was no concern to drive to the grocery store, but we did not see any at a walking distance?
A nice place with a nice host to recommend!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
The place is adorable! Very clean and nicely furnished. Fresh flowers!
And Louis is an excellent host. He is very helpful and makes himself available to answer any questions about the city, including subway routes, restaurant suggestions, things to do, etc. We will definitely stay again and highly recommend to anyone visiting the Boston area.

A perfect home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5
Diamond 3 was a remarkable apartment. It was well situated, extremely well equiped, and above all clean. As others have mentioned the beds were comfortable and rooms well appointed. Louis was a wonderful host spending as much time as we needed to orient us to the house, neighbourhood and city. He could not have been more kind, thoughtful or helpful. We have been searching for a home-away-from-home for when we visit our daughter in Boston and we all agree that we believe we have found it.

Great House, Great Host, Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay and see Boston. The house was really nice. We had 3 adults and one teenager and it was nice to come back and spread out. The "T" train/subway was very close so you could get anywhere in Boston. Jamaica Plain is a very cute little suburb with great places to eat also--you do need to bring some comfy walking shoes though. We really loved the house and on the way home we all were wondering who was now staying in 'our' apartment. Louis was a terrific host--we feel bad that we made him stay up late on our arrival and up early on our departure but he was very pleasant both times. He had great recommendations. We called or texted if we needed anything and he was very responsive immediately. This was our first VRBO and it went very well. If you are coming to visit Boston we highly recommend this house. Beautifully restored.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all of your kind words. I do take my job as host seriously and if that means the occasional late night or early morning, I'm happy to do it. And you're right about bringing comfy shoes. Boston is one of America's most walkable cities and Diamond House is in the perfect "launch pad" for many enjoyable excursions on foot -- or by car, train, or bus, whichever you prefer.

Clean, neat, full kitchen, plenty of space!

  • 4 of 5
Louis was a super host. Goes above and beyond most Homeaway hosts to make sure you have what you need. Beautifully furnished, without the fragile decorations for 7 & 9 yr. old boys to break. We were in by dusk each day and felt perfectly safe in Stoneybrook. Use good judgement when venturing up the orange line after dark. Would recommend to family & friends.

Magnificent Rental

  • 5 of 5
I would return to this rental if I ever visit Boston again. We enjoyed the space of the rental for our family of four. The closeness of the metro was great and we easily got around Boston. Louis was helpful in getting our luggage up to the top floor and providing a low scent environment because of allergies. We thank you for the use of the duct tape to repair the suitcase and stapler. Washer and dryer in the basement worked well for a cost of $2 for wash and $2 for a dry with Louis providing the quarters. We appreciated the Victorian house decor and nice touches here and there. The kitchen was well stocked and we liked the dishwasher. Thanks for a great rental and a beautiful city.
