We had a pleasant stay. Emmanuel was kind to allow us check in earlier than expected. There is easy access in and out of Boston. Even to the center of Jamaica Plains. We will definitely come back.
La descripción era correcta y el barrio muy lindo. Nos pareció que le hubiera faltado un poco de limpieza en cuartos y cocina. El barrio es residencial y nosotros estábamos con auto entonces no hubo problemas con el transporte. La atención de Emanuel fue adecuado.
Emmanuel's place was lovely, spacious and clean. It's great for a family vacation. We had a great time and would highly recommend it to anyone! Thank you Emmanuel!
Property was exactly as presented and we enjoyed our stay. Simply but thoughtfully furnished. Nice neighborhood, parking spot, super secure. House was immaculately clean. Lovely sunroom overlooking large back yard, nice for morning coffee. Host was very welcoming. Definitely recommend in this area of Boston and would return. Nicely done!
Emmanuel was a very good host. Had booked the place for my parents who were traveling from abroad to take a tour of Boston. The stay was pretty comfortable and was big enough to accommodate everybody. Emmanuel immediately installed ACs as soon as we let him know that it was getting a lil hot in the house. The summer had set in. All in all nice place to stay. Ther's a beautiful pond nearby and the Harvard arboretum.The orange line is a 5 min walk. I would stay here again.
Great home to stay in. Truly blocks from JP. Large home, near public transit. Would rent again.
I booked this house for clients coming into town for 2 weeks. While a little hard to initially find, our clients were thrilled to pieces with Emmanuel's home and found it very easy to access public transportation and otherwise get around.
Emmanuel responded to any questions immediately, and was in frequent contact with me throughout their stay. I would absolutely look to rent this home again in the future.
