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.

Very nice place to stay in Boston

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.

Great place - super close to lots of restaurants and Whole Foods!

  • 5 of 5

Before I begin to discuss the property, I have to give a big shot out to Rachel (the owner). My husband and I do a lot of vrbo-ing (we enjoy a kitchen for breakfast) and Rachel is amazing to deal with! A lot of the VRBO owners can be unresponsive or difficult to deal with. Not Rachel- I probably asked her a dozen questions before and during our stay. She was always pleasent and responsive. We brought our dog with us and Rachel was very accommodating. She just asked that we were considerate of others in the area when it came to our dog- which is understandable!

The apartment is exactly as described. Very close to lots of restaurants. My husband and I walked everywhere (except to the train station, it was cold!). The apartment is on a street that has a bit of a hill which is nice because it gives you a chance to walk back and digest your food. The kitchen was exactly what we needed and all of the furnishings looked pretty new. The bed was even comfortable- not that 50 year old bed that I've seen in a lot of other places with the springs sticking you in the back. If we make it back up to Boston, I would be happy to stay in this place again!
