Boston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 10-12)

Huge 4 bedroom retreat conveniently located near shops, restaurants and cafes on a beautiful lot in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Across the street from 10 Tables Restaurant (consistently voted 1 of Boston's best), a minute walk to one of Boston's treasured whole foods markets/cafe. Just outside, you will find a bus that goes directly to downtown Boston & Copley Square (right next to Newbury Street). The nearest subway stop is a 5 minute walk. Inside, you will delight in the spacious, sunny dining and living rooms, complete with antique moldings, quarter-sawn hardwood floors and high ceilings. The bright & spacious kitchen features stainless gas cooking and fresh white cabinetry. A deck off the kitchen is the perfect place to unwind after a long day in town. One bedroom on main floor has a private deck. Three additional bedrooms are upstairs, with beautiful views of the treetops. Unit can also be combined with the downstairs unit for an additional $3400 a week to make a huge 5000 sq ft 8 bed, 3 bath with 2 living/dining and 2 kitchens.

Perfect for a Large Group, Very Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this property for a bachelorette/girls weekend and the house was perfect for our needs. We were a group of 11 and this was more than adequate space for us. This was much more affordable than a hotel. The house was impeccably clean and just as advertised. Jeremy was great to work with, responded very quickly to inquiries and was even nice enough to give us a great dinner recommendation. There were clean sheets and towels just as advertised. In case its not clear from the description there are 2 full bathrooms which we weren't sure about when we read the description. There is a great outdoor space if the weather is nice.

Parking was a little tricky since it is all street parking, we had 5-6 cars and were able to manage. Location is good, its about a $20.00 cab ride to the main part of the city. We also walked a little less than a mile to the Sam Adams brewery which was nice. The area surrounding the house is nice with some cute restaurants and shops. All in all a great option when visiting Boston and I could see it working for a variety of group types!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable and well located but the best part was dealing with Jeremy. He was always reachable, and he gave us great recommendations for local spots to check out (kids' playground, restaurants, dog parks). He also went the distance for us when we forgot some stuff at the apartment by calling the cleaning service right away. The floors do creak a little and you do hear some street traffic from some rooms but you are on a main street with easy access to public transportation. Our two young kids slept really well. We also loved taking long walks around the nearby pond with our dog.

Excellent alternative to hotels for corporate event!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for a corporate event and couldn't be happier! Our seven guests were thrilled with the house and the location, and all said that this far surpassed any hotel they had ever stayed at. Jeremy was great to deal with too. I highly recommend this for anyone! I will certainly be sending more guests in the future!

Jamaica Plain house (Boston)

  • 5 of 5

Easy access, nice neighborhood (Jamaica Plain), close to bus, subway and fast taxis.

Very roomy with good cross ventilation. Nice back balcony for hanging out and rooms were big, beds super comfortable. Kitchen big "old school" size with all the amenities. One negative was loud renters downstairs but thats not necessarily on the landlord!. Overall, had a great time with family at our sons college graduation from Berklee College of Music. Will rent again!

Owner's Response: Really happy when I hear people enjoyed their stay! I wish the tenant would have told me about the noise from the other unit because I would have done something about it right away. I am accessible 24 hours a day and also my property maintenance person lives right next door so i can attend to any situation that arises very quickly.

Love this place!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely wonderful! Very convenient location! Very clean and nicely decorated! We had 22 people staying in unit 2 for the boston marathon, it was big enough that we didn't feel totally cramped! The owner was very quick to respond when we had questions! This home will always be a special place in my families heart because this was the location where all 22 of us finally reunited after the explosions at the 2013 boston marathon!! We shared many tears of sadness and joy here! We love boston and the Jamaica plain area! We will be back next year!! Hopefully in the same house!!
