Wonderful Apartment and Perfect Location!

Safety, cleanliness and location are always my first concerns when renting through VRBO or HomeAway. This apartment was immaculate. It was a short walk to the T and we never felt unsafe when walking home in the evening after a full day in Boston. The Samuel Adams Brewery (tour) is a short walk away. We took their free trolley to Doyles, a local landmark. We had so much fun!
Easy walking distance to many restaurants and markets. The bathroom is tiny and the bed is high! But it was just part of the fun! I would definitely recommend this apartment.
Owner's Response: As this guest states, the location of The Arbor Side to so many amenities (e.g., restaurants, markets, bakery, subway, etc.) and attractions, like the Sam Adams Brewery (e.g., galleries, The Arnold Arboretum, etc.) make it an attractive home base from which to explore Jamaica Plain and Boston. In addition, this guest also points out the comfortable and unique aspects of the apartment, too. It is definitely a home away from home.

The Arbor Side

Arbor Side is a truly charming property – the photos do not do it justice – the owner has a true flair for color and design. We loved the convenient kitchen and the cozy lounge. The washer/dryer was a bonus. There are quite a few good restaurants in the area as well as food shops. We particularly liked James Gate for their excellent but reasonably priced food together with a marvelous selection of beer. The walk to the MTA was level and pleasant and the trains were frequent. It was particularly good to have off road parking for our rental car but I would not advise driving into the center of Boston. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to our friends.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: The Arbor Side provides a comfortable respite for the busy traveler. Two sitting areas - the den with television and stereo and the living room with ample seating and lots of light (sunlight by day and indoor lighting by night) - provide guests with the space to spread out while at home. The living room gives folks a quiet place to study or read while the den allows those who want to watch TV a separate spot to hang out and watch their favorite programs. There are speakers for the stereo in the den, "in-wall" speakers in the kitchen, and speakers in the living room, too, with options to isolate the sound to either the kitchen and den or just the living room or all three at once.

Everything was just as advertised and the owner did a good job explaining all the necessary logistics prior to our arrival. We had seen one review expressing some concern about the neighborhood; we thought it was great. We will be back I'm sure.
Owner's Response: In order to make guests' visits as comfortable and effortless as possible, I make a sincere effort to communicate as much information about both the apartment and Jamaica Plain itself with both an email that contains all the information needed to locate the property and access the apartment. In addition, I email a PDF version of the hard copy version found in the apartment of The Arbor Side Guide with information about the amenities in the apartment and details about Jamaica Plain, too.

Home away from Home!

We were pleasantly surprised as we opened the door and immediately felt at home and comfortable. Every detail has been carefully thought out from the wonderfully equipped kitchen with all the pans, tools and appliances top of the line, to the linens for the bath and bedroom (which were all top of the line)Every thing was clean and tidy.
We enjoyed the location....the street was quiet and the short walk to shopping was convenient and pleasant.
We took the MTA to Boston every day..an easy and quick trip.
I would certainly recommend the Arbor View to friends and relatives.

We were so unexpectedly surprised and delighted at the comfort and charm of "The Arbor Side". All of the details of a charming little home are there from the beautifully equipped kitchen to the luxurious, fluffy white towels in the bath. The decor is tasteful with an eye for detail. We loved Jamaica Plain....some described as Berkeley East. We were able to find anything we needed with a 5 minute walk. We shopped at the local "Food Co-Op for our meals. It is close, convenient and well stocked. We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others.
