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.

Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful five days in Jamaica Plain. Family of four, kids 16 and 13. the third floor apt was perfect as each child had their own room and mom and dad got the master. Louis was quite helpful for all of our needs. Neighborhood was nice and peaceful. Metro five minute walk. FABULOUS Bella Luna Restaurant also w/in walking distance, right next to Ula Cafe where we got our morning drinks (they also have sandwiches, take out, etc till 7pm). Used Metro to get everywhere -- all the sights downtown and airport too. Also check out the arboretum at forest hills stop (two stops from stonybrook, where we were) for a quiet, beatiful morning stroll before the kids got up (with ula cafe drink in hand). Took Louis advice and got week long pass. Really easy to use. Would stay here again for sure. wish we had time to get to sam adams brewery which is close by as well, but there is just too much to do.

Wonderful Property and Owner!

  • 5 of 5
Diamond House is beautiful and inviting and the owner was so sweet and helpful - even running us to the grocery store for essentials after a very delayed arrival! We loved the Jamaica Plain area and took advantage of great local restaurants, bars and tours (Sam Adams Brewery is highly recommended!), all within walking distance of the house. And the T stop one block away was perfect for zipping into Boston for all the touristy staples. We had a great time and will definitely stay here again if ever back in Boston!

Diamond house

  • 5 of 5
The property was magnificent, house was perfect and suited each and every one of my needs. Orange Stony Brook train station was just literally around the corner. Was greeted by Louis upon my initial arrival, very courteous and nice, house was very clean with plenty of room for a family to stay.

Very nice, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Diamond House and would not hesitate to stay there again. The owner was friendly, very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. It's an easy, short walk to public transportation, a park/playground and markets for necessities, and it was nice to return to such comfortable accommodations each night after tiring ourselves out taking in all the history that's here.

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!

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.
