Amazing location that is very family friendly!!!!

Great location. Close to the city. Pictures are accurate. Lots of parks and playgrounds within walking distance. Owners thought of most everything ...even toys for the little people. Happy that our family dog could accompany us on our trip.

Great area to stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a really enjoyable stay in Lee Street. Excellent area, within 10-12 minutes walk of the nearest T-stop [I'm sure it took longer to walk each time we went there!]. A very quiet neighbourhood with some decent bars within easy walking distance.

The property was in excellent condition and as advertised - the photos actually make it look lighter than it actually was but that isn't really a criticism!

I always like to leave comments about improvements that would make the stay better...

The air-con units are only in the two bedrooms so the main rooms were often warm - but the temperatures were excessive for the time of year.

The lighting in the kitchen was a little dark - not a huge problem but sometimes when cooking breakfast it seemed a little dim as the stove had no light above it.

The Wi-Fi seemed a little temperamental at times.

The "Welcome Information" needs updating a little - as Olive and Family no longer live on the top floor - so ringing the bell didn't allow us to speak to Olive to say Hi!

We loved our stay at Lee Street. The property has retained beautiful original features and the owners have chosen unique items of furniture.

I loved sitting outside every morning and evening and felt a million miles from the city despite being so close.

Perfectly positioned for our stay for visits to Downtown Boston and Cambridge by 'T' and Nantasket and Cape Cod by car. We walked to local shops, restaurants and the beautiful Jamaica Pond.

I have never met such friendly and helpful people as those I met in Boston, and particularly in Jamaica Plain.

My son is there for 4 years - I can't wait to come back :)

Good Rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was quite difficult to find through the Jamaica Plain one way system at dusk on the evening we arrived.

No nasty suprises internally on arrival, looked just as the pictures on the site, the outside is not quite as bright as the picture on the site. A ten minute walk to the T at Green Street then 20 minutes into central Boston. Property clean and well maintained, whenever I contacted Olive through the Home & Away site with a question she responded in a timely manner, resolving the situation, enjoyed sitting out at the back of the house during the evening, walking distance to Doyles bar.

No hesitation recommending this property.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 days here in June with our daughter and her two children, ages 12 & almost 15. We were quite comfortable in general, and the mattresses were particularly nice. There was plenty of room for us to relax and enjoy this lovely old home (apt.), and everything was spic and span. It is within easy walking distance to Doyle's, where we enjoyed a wonderful Irish-fare breakfast one morning; and the "T" is likewise just a few blocks away. I would like to add to a previous reviewer's comments on the door lock--although there was a deadbolt on the rental unit, it required the key to lock it from the inside, which would need to be left in the lock for fire safety reasons, We chose not use it and instead used the sliding lock and were not at all worried about security. Besides this being a quiet neighborhood, the door to the unit is inside behind another dead-bolted door to the front porch. My only suggestion would be to perhaps put a mirror someplace in the apt. near an electrical outlet since there are none in the bathroom, thereby allowing a person to do some grooming outside the bathroom while another person is showering. Overall, though, we had a very comfortable stay and would recommend this to anyone visiting the Boston area for a few days.

Great location and spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights at the beginning of March. My husband and I were traveling with our two children (ages 3 and 1) and our 18 year old nephew. There was more than enough space for all of us in this apartment. While we were there both of our children fell ill. A lot of our plans were canceled due to high fevers. There was enough room for us to spend most of our time without feeling like we were on top of each other. The back yard certainly helped for the kids as well.

The unit was very clean and well maintained. My only concern was that you could not properly lock the main apartment door once you were inside. While the owners assured us it was a safe neighbourhood, I still did not feel comfortable with only a sliding lock keeping the door locked at night.

Perhaps my favourite part about this unit was that out front there is a sign indicating there is a deaf child on the street. Both of our children are deaf, and although we didn't know about this sign before we arrived, we did recommend this apartment to families in several parent groups we belong to.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your helpful & kind review. I am just realizing that you had not used the dead-bolt to lock the front door from the inside, the sliding lock is just for extra security.
