Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jill was a wonderful host! She is an amazing person, who has a passion for running and sailing, people in Haiti, her friends and her pets. Buddy and Angel are so lovely and well behaved. The room was tidy, clean and very comfortable. Jill gave me a lot of private sphere, but always helped me out whenever I needed her. Furthremore, I have come to love Jamaica Plain! It is such a nice neighborhood for both young and experienced people. As a woman you do not have to worry walking by your own at night. Cute houses everywhere and the pond right around the corner, bars and restaurants very close to where Jill lives. Jill was very helpful whenever I planned a trip in the area of Boston, but even with my trip to New York! She was a great host. I strongly recommend staying with her. Thank you, Jill, for making me feel at home!

  • I stayed with Jill for 8 weeks this summer (2013), while I was joining a summer school. Jill was indeed a perfect flatmate/host, giving my stay a homy feel as of the first day.
    Jill is very welcoming and helpful, but not the least bit intrusive. You have everything you need around, and the flat is clean and in a convenient and nice area (pond just behind the house, bus stop nearby). My husband also stayed for 2 weeks, and he could go sailing with Jill some days, which he absolutely loved. Jill is a very interesting women, whom I loved to talk to. Totally recommend staying with her. THANK YOU JILL! Hope will be back some time:)

  • Jill was a fantastic host. Her home is lovely, JP is a great area, and I very much enjoyed my time with Buddy & Angel, her dog and cat. It was a great stay all around! I felt at home.

  • My stay with Jill was a great experience. Her home is near to downtown (only a short walh to bus or T), but on the other hand in a friendly and quiet neighborhood. The ideal starting point for a great holiday!
    The room and Jill provides all you need for a comfortable stay.
    Jill is a very interesting person who provides a lot of information about the Boston and the life there. It was a pleasure to stay with her!
    And also with the pets who are absolutely lovely.
    Since I had to shorten my stay due to personal reasons I hope to come back to Boston soon and that I will have the chance to stay again at Friendly Great Boston Neighborhood!

  • This is such a wonderful find and incredibly comfortable, highly recommended to any future guest. The location is superb, close to the city, but also near the Emerald Necklace's Jamaica Pond. Jill was so flexible as there was a miscommunication regarding who was staying there: my husband and I live nearby and our our family was in town and needed a room as our place is too small. Instead of a couple coming, a couple and an 11 month old baby was hoping to stay there! Jill was amazingly gracious, picked us up so we didn't have to carry all the luggage, and even offered a light breakfast in the morning as the schedule was a bit overbooked. On top of Jill's kindness, we absolutely couldn't believe how well behaved the dogs were (they were so great with the baby!) and the cat really wasn't around. Thank you so much, Jill! You really went over and above...we so appreciate your hospitality and thought while our family was in town staying in your room!

  • I was in Boston for business for 2 weeks and was looking for a place to stay that wouldn't break the (company's) bank and would also provide a more interesting experience than a hotel. I am so pleased to have found such a great place! Jill was a wonderful host - interesting, kind, generous, and not intrusive in the least. The 2 dogs and cat were so friendly and I loved coming home to them. Jill was usually already gone in the morning when I got up, but we saw each other a few of the evenings. She is an extremely interesting person to talk to and knows a lot about Boston and the area. I immediately felt right at home in my room and in the rest of the place as well. It's a bit of a walk to the T, but I always felt safe and it's a lovely neighborhood to walk through. There are plenty of places to pick up groceries or grab a bite to eat nearby. I was sad to leave, and would definitely go back the next time I'm in town!

  • Notre séjour d'un mois chez Jill Hallisey s'est passé sans fausse note. Jill est simple, directe, positive, chaleureuse. Elle a son travail, ses engagements humanitaires, elle est très indépendante, mais elle reste à l'écoute et elle n'a jamais laissé passer une occasion de nous rendre service ou de nous renseigner tout en respectant notre autonomie. Nous étions à Boston afin de prendre des repères pour un roman; après les heures de marche dans la ville, c'était un plaisir de retrouver cette maison tranquille, de prendre un verre sur la terrasse, de respirer sur la pelouse, de passer les nuits dans un calme campagnard. Le centre de Jamaïca Plain, à deux cent mètres, est vivant et animé, il regorge de petits restaurants typiques et de commerces, on y trouve un fabuleux café-épicerie-restaurant bio, des fringues originales... Le bus pour Boston passe à cent mètres, mais dix minutes de marche vous amènent au métro. Si vous aimez l'espace et la nature, un lac vous attend au bout de la rue, et le Franklin Arboretum, à cinq minutes de là, est extraordinaire. Autre point : le chat et les deux chiens sont bien vivants, les chiens sont drôles, toujours contents de vous voir, et assez obéissants. La maison et ses meubles sont patinés par le temps, mais les équipements fonctionnent vraiment correctement et l'ensemble est propre. en conclusion, nous recommandons chaudement ce bnb.

  • Sweet spot, great neighborhood, laid back host. I am a low-needs traveler and this was perfect: clean, comfortable, friendly. The 2 nice dogs and a nice cat were a pleasant addition for this animal lover.

  • I stayed with Jill for a few days when I was in Boston to take care of some personal business. She was very helpful and knowledgable and always available to assist me with any information that could help me. The house is in a great jamaica Plains neighborhood which is also very safe. There was ample parking on the quiet street in front. The house was clean and beautifully furnished with antiques. It was a joy to stay with Jill. I highly recommend her.

I am a friendly and fun women in my 50's. I am very active and LOVE hosting especially international people,visiting medical professionals and students. I have hosted with other groups for over 20 years! I enjoy showing people around town and even weekend trips if available. Sailing anyone? I have 2 adorable dogs and a cat, my house is in a great neighborhood close to great shops and restaurants and very close to transportation(2 minutes),medical centers (10 minutes)and down town (15 minutes) Jamaica Plain is a very eclectic and "cool" area of Boston yet only 15 minutes on the bus to downtown. If you prefer to stay close to home there are running trails , the Jamaica Pond, the Arboretum and some great little restaurants within walking distance. I have a newly private and landscaped back yard for you to relax in along with a back and front porch. There is ample on street parking. I keep a quiet house and work alot so you will have alot of privacy . Coffee, beverages and snacks wil be included in your stay and you are welcomed to use the kitchen. You will have a great Boston experience, I promise! I look forward to hearing from you!
