Quiet, Clean & Cozy Accommodations for Marathon

  • 5 of 5

Before I get to the house, let me say that John and Maria go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcomed and cared for. Maria's binder of information was very thorough and helped us navigate around and plan out our time in Boston. We ate at some of the recommended nearby restaurants and were very pleased, especially with James's Gate.

The house was very clean and cozy. Everything we needed was there. The beds were pleasantly comfortable - typically a rare thing when travelling. We were in town for the Boston Marathon so it was especially nice to have the washer and dryer to wash the smelly running clothes!

It was nice being in Jamaica Plain because we could easily get to all the marathon events during the day, but then come back to a quiet place in the evening. Our kids loved the 2 nearby playgrounds and the arboretum. There were also good running trails just a block from the house. Travel into the city was a 5 minute walk to the station or bus stop and then either a 10-15 minute train ride or 20-25 minute bus ride.

We would highly recommend this property. Should we come back for the marathon next year, you will have to beat us to booking it!

Loved the fully stocked supply of coffee beans. Well appointed kitchen made it easy to pull off Thanksgiving away from home.

Nice rental near Boston.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights. Great location near Boston and subway. I really appreciated having washer/dryer! Bedrooms are on the second floor, so have to go downstairs to use the bathroom during the night so may be inconvenient for some people. Nicely kept yard and large porch to relax and sip my coffee. The owners are very nice. Enjoyed our stay at their lovely home.

The house to the rear of the main property was ideal in every way. It was very clean and cosy and very well equipped. Maria was a very helpful lady and went out of her way to supply any information needed. Would definitely recommend this property.
