Overview

About the property

3 bdrms, 1 bath, sleeps 8, living rm w/ gas fireplace, ding rm, full kit, porch

Enter the front door and you're in your home away from home. It's spacious but comforting.

Bedrooms are decked out with comfy linens. Back porch looks at the garden. Eat in the kitchen or the dining room. On chilly evenings have a fire with the click of a switch.

Jamaica Plain (JP) is a neighborhood within the city of Boston. The house has easy access to the T (our public transit system) — a 15 minute ride to downtown. JP has the feel of a small town but it's definitely part of Boston's urban life. The house is just one block from Jamaica Pond (a 1.5 miles loop around the pond) which is great for walking or running in all seasons — biking, picnics or renting a sailboat in the warmer months.

Just 2 streets away is a new Whole Foods Market. Walk less than 10 minutes and you're in JP center with an array of ethnic restaurants, cafes, pubs and retail stores. This home is a great space in a great neighborhood in a great city - all set up for a great vacation

No issues here. Excellent location to get around anywhere from. Very safe area and no issues at all with walking around to get whatever you may need. Elaine is great hostess and gives a lot of great information as well. Worry free stay.

Beautiful Cape Cod style House in quaint neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very enjoyable experience staying here. Elaine was a wonderful host supplying everything we needed. The house was well kept and nice inside. Great place to come back to at the end of the day exploring Boston's rich history. Quiet and relaxing the night before the marathon. Also huge bonus on street parking. Overall A+

Spring Break in Boston

  • 5 of 5

We had a great mini vacation in Boston. This house was everything we could ask for. It was clean and provided all the amenities needed. The backyard and front porch were great!! This house was located in the perfect spot. We had access to the train, restaurants, shopping, etc. The neighborhood was quiet and cozy. We felt right at home. We would definitely rent from Elaine again.

Home away from home! We will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous home! Very homey and comfortable with plenty of room. The owner, Elaine was friendly and helpful during our short stay. The neighborhood is quaint and very 'New Englandy' with lots to offer by way of restaurants, nature and a Whole Foods grocery store close by. Elaine has a large collection of brochures for us to plan our days exploring Boston. We primarily used the T (subway) to get to and from downtown Boston, which is a short walk from the house. Elaine was helpful in sending information ahead of time regarding public transportation and different ways of getting around. We absolutely loved our weekend in Elaines home and look forward to our next opportunity to visit.

Perfect spot in JP!

  • 5 of 5

We had several friends in town and instead of staying at several hotels we all stayed in this awesome home. The location is convenient to get to and close to good restaurants and bars. The owner was extremely accommodating and made the stay even better. I only wish the weather was better in Boston while we stayed so that we could have taken advantage of the backyard. All in all, I would recommend staying here to pretty much everyone.

Map

Car: not necessary

Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood within the city of Boston that provides a small town feel within the urban lifestyle. JP, as locals call it, is just minutes from downtown Boston by public transportation. It's a unique community, almost completely surrounded by parks, including the Emerald Necklace (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted of Central Park fame) the Arnold Arboretum, Franklin Park Zoo and a protected Urban Wild area. The center of JP offers abundant amenities including restaurants — ranging from take out to 4 Star — in an array of ethnic options. A great place for families, couples and singles.

Let's not forget this is New England. Pleasant car rides in almost any direction take you to the picturesque small towns you've seen on postcards. Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and Vermont are each within an hour's drive. In fact, you can drive to Montreal in about 6 hours . . . and New York City in about 4.

Good spot for a great visit.
