About the property

One bedroom, two bath apartment, full kitchen, sleeps 2-4

You won’t need a car to get around Boston from this lovely, newly improved garden apartment in a quiet Jamaica Plain neighborhood. We are a few blocks from the T (Orange Line), and walking distance to Whole Foods, great restaurants, the Sam Adams Brewery, and the Emerald Necklace, Boston’s incredible park system. Ideal for couples or small families, you will have two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. If you do have a car, there is ample parking on the street. No parking is permitted in the driveway. Please be advised that the studio/laundry room through which you enter the unit has a slightly low ceiling. The kitchen and main large bedroom are a normal height.

About Rachel Hess

My parents live in California and bought this house because they come out to visit the grandchildren so frequently. I have lived here for over 10 years and love the community. I am an educator, working with expectant and new parents. My wife is a teacher and has worked in the public school system for over 10 years. We have two small children and a large cat.

Comfortable place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Heron House was the perfect home base for a long weekend in Jamaica Plain with my husband and toddler. The apartment is very well located in a beautiful neighborhood, walking distance from everything we needed and with easy access to public transit. The space was cool and comfortable, and our little one slept great - which is rare and valuable when traveling with babies and children! We had everything we needed and felt comfortable and relaxed every time we came back to the apartment.

Heron House

  • 5 of 5

Great location near T. Small yet very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen (sharp knives!) and great water pressure in the shower (things that are important to me!). Although I did not get to actually meet Rachel, she was very attentive and responsive to a few issues that arose and she communicated very well. Had a wonderful Ethiopian meal at Blue Nile. In spite of the wet weather, great neighborhood to wander around.

Hello, we really enjoyed our stay at Blue Heron. Easy and fast to travel to downtown with subway. Apartment is clean and in a quiet area.

We recommande that place.
