Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a great location. We never rented a car. There were 6 in our group-with three children ages 11-14. We were able to catch a bus in front of the condo and easily get to the subway station or downtown. The deck was very nice and we were able to sit outside most evenings after a busy day of sightseeing. There were 3 adults and 3 children and the accommodations worked very well. The internet worked well for us. The owner answered any questions I had and checked with us in the middle of our week long stay to see if we needed any thing. There were convenience stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. We purchased a 7 day link card and took full advantage of it. There was a walking path around Jamaica lake within 3 blocks which made for a nice evening stroll. Grocery stores were on the one bus line which made food shopping easy. I would recommend this property to someone going to Boston on vacation.

Great time!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time with 13 girls at this clean and beautifully decorated duplex. Plenty of space and the kitchen was nice to congregate at. We Ubered to and from the city which was a downside but definitely a deal to stay there versus the expensive city. We LOVED Boston!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

6 of us were there to celebrate a 50th birthday for a week.

The house is very nicely presented and well equipped.

The location makes an excellent base to explore the local area and to get quickly into the city centre.

The metro is a short walk away and it's a 20 minute ride into town, although there are many local bars and restaurants.

Plenty to see and do, we all had a lovely time.

Comfortable and spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for a reunion with family from all over the country. We enjoyed the spacious home and the large kitchen and entertaining area. Most of all we enjoyed the location. The home is a short walk from Jamaica Pond and Arnold Arboretum and it is steps from great shops, restaurants and bars on Centre street. The home has many period details and is nicely renovated. It is surrounded by a mature trees full of birds and has a lovely deck outside (though it was a little cold outside for us to use).

The owner Jeremy and I had to deal with some complications due to a check that got lost in the mail; he was exceedingly patient and gracious.

Parking was on the street, but it seemed to work fine.

I might not recommend this property for folks who have mobility issues. It is up a set of stairs from the sidewalk, there is only one bedroom on the ground level. But for everyone else, it's a gem. I think it would be good for kids too.

Boston Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 spent five days at this property. Great access to the T. Kids in the basement, adults on the first and second floors. Worked out very well for all. JP has nice restaurants and nice little shops which are very convenient. All in all a wonderful trip.

Troop 279 Boston Experience

  • 5 of 5

Jeremy took a leap over a year ago to book to Boy Scout Troop 279 from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. We plan a week long trip every other year and like to include educational yet fun activities etc. Our boys choose Boston then I was charged in finding us a spot to stay. Jeremy was fantastic from the start. He took time to explain the property in detail, lay out his costs, etc. We decided to book. We just recently returned home after seeing the USS Constitution, Freedom Trail, Duck Tour, New England Aquarium and Whale Watch cruise,a trip to Salem and more. The accommodations worked fantastic for our group of 13. The property was very clean, neat and overall well maintained. It was great within walking distance to Green Street T and loved the local restaurants. Top favorite was Robinwood Cafe. We ate there 3 times with 13 people. Fantastic Food and service. I would very highly recommend Jeremy and his property.

Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood in Boston which is adjacent to downtown and less than 10 minutes by T to downtown. Also a bike trail into Boston Downtown. JP is a very artistic lively neighborhood with over 15 great restaurants within 5 minutes walk from home, cafes and shops steps away from the house. A few blocks away is also Jamaica Pond with walking and bike trails around it.
