Quiet, private & serene 3rd floor apt. Separate entrance, full bath & kitchenette. Bright and spacious, yet cozy. 3 blocks from the center of JP with great restaurants and shopping. 5 min. walk to the 39 bus to Longwood Area and Back Bay. 15 min. walk to the Orange Line T (subway); ten minutes to Back Bay Station on the T. 1/2 block from Jamaica Pond. 5 min. walk to the Arboretum. Our space is NOT good for people with huge luggage! Tons (truly) of street parking, no permit or restrictions.

The space
This is a private and serene space away from (but close to) the hustle and bustle of city life. Jamaica Plain, where we live, is one of the many smaller towns/areas that make up the city of Boston. Look it up on the map and make sure it's what you want! We are three miles from downtown Boston.

A deep and thorough cleaning is done between guests. All surfaces, light switches, door handles, etc. will, of course, be cleaned/sterilized.

Our renovated attic space is completely separate from our 2nd floor condo and the stairway in the back of the house is almost exclusively used by guests. During the pandemic, if I use the back stairs to get to the basement I will always wear a mask when we have guests.

The large open living area is both cozy and spacious at the same time. There are six skylights which let in fresh air and lots of light. There are plenty of comfortable places to lounge: a deep, low sofa; a daybed and chairs.

The kitchenette contains just enough to make a small simple meal: utensils, microwave, and mini fridge as well as a French press for making coffee and an electric tea kettle. There is a large utility sink too. There's a sharp knife for cutting fruit or vegetables and a single induction burner for cooking.

Brand new central air conditioning and very effective heating system!

The skylights look out onto rooftops and trees and even give a glimpse of the pond. It's nice to gaze up at the sky.

The large bedroom (10 x 16') has a king size organic latex and wool bed and new pillows. The skylight lets in soft light.

The cozy sleeping nook is just that. It's on the opposite side from the big bedroom and it's a bit like a little fort. It's perfect for anyone who likes a den-like feel. It has a full-size mattress on the floor so comfortably sleeps two! There's also a twin daybed in the large living area that's surprisingly comfortable as well.

There's a desk and chair for anyone needing go get some work done.

There is always tea, coffee, and organic whole milk for guests and I will provide you with homemade yogurt and granola for the first morning of your stay.

We live in the apartment below so if you need anything we've probably got it.

Where you’ll be

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

Jamaica Plain is one of the many smaller towns/areas that make up the City of Boston. Look it up on the map and make sure it's what you want! We are three miles from downtown Boston.

This is a lovely, pretty and safe neighborhood. It's a diverse and welcoming part of town with a great and unexpected combination of city life and green space. Jamaica Pond is just down the street and it's a great place for a stroll or run or you can head to the Arnold Arboretum for a longer walk. Herons, hawks and other birds abound and we have a neighborhood screech owl you might hear at dusk. During the temperate months there's a Hubway (look them up) bicycle rental station a few blocks away. We will lend you helmets if you need them. There are dozens of great restaurants in Jamaica Plain and lots of fun shopping -- everything from thrift stores to specialty boutiques. Delicious coffee can be found in a number of different places where you can lounge comfortably and people watch or work.

JP is a special place.

I'm a photographer specializing in portraits. I love meeting people from all walks of life and any and all countries. I'm interested in people and their stories. My 13 year old twins and I love our house and our town. We like meeting new people, trying new foods (well, I do) and hanging our with our dogs Lily and Stormy. We are friendly and outgoing and relatively quiet. We like to travel and have adventures but so far that's mostly done close to home.

Now that I've been an Airbnb host for 2 years I can safely say I love it! I'm so proud of our beautiful space and I love it when others like it as much as we do. It's incredibly gratifying! It's nice to be able to provide a comfortable, clean and calm spot for travelers.
