Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was my husband's and three sons first trip to Boston and we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. The house was very comfortable with plenty of space for all five of us. It had a fully stocked kitchen which was nice since we ate many meals at the the house. The location was also wonderful. The neighborhood includes local parks, shops and restaurants. We took advantage of the subway to downtown Boston which was a 7 minute walk , the Samuel Adams Brewery tour (15 minute walk), and the Harvard Arboretum (also within walking distance). The owner, Patrick, lives nearby and could not have been more gracious and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. Loved it!

Respite in Jamaica Plain

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home while visiting Boston for our daughter's graduation. After the ceremony we had wine and snacks in the large, beautifully landscaped back yard. Across the street is a park, and each morning and evening we watched the neighbors walk their happy dogs there. Various song birds visit the property. While in Boston, we visited the Harvard Art Museum, Paul Revere's home, the Old North Church, the JFK presidential library, and took an architecture tour of Beacon Hill. A couple of suggestions I would make would be to provide hand towels in the bathrooms (only bath towels and wash cloths were there when we visited), and if the front door had a separate screen door, air, light, and bird song could be enjoyed without letting bugs in. Thank you Patrick

Loved this Jamaica Plain home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five adults spent six nights here. We had plenty of room. The house could easily accommodate 6-7. The home is very charming and clean. It had all the amenities we needed. Patrick came over and introduced himself and answered our questions on our first night. The subway station is less than a five minute walk. Neighborhood is very quiet and charming. Would definitely stay again if we get back to the Boston area.

How to visit Boston with a large group

  • 4 of 5

This house was a very good fit for our group. The three bedrooms were cute and comfortable and the air conditioners worked extremely well in getting the oppressive northeast humidity out of the house. The two bathrooms also helped in getting the group ready for our various outings throughout the Boston area.

And all the outings were very close due to the location of the house. Everything was within 20 minutes or less. Let's face it, if you want the convenience of a good sized home with all the amenities then this is your destination.

Great property in a good location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks with a family of four and the location is perfect , 5 mins walk to green Street station for easy access to Boston city centre without the need to have a car also easy access to major highways to travel further afield to cape cod , wrentham outlets by car.

Property was also perfect for our needs and had everything to ensure an enjoyable vacation and at a similar cost to staying at a hotel we were so happy to have rented this house and will be back. The owners were also very nice and on hand if required for advice .
