Other Things to Note
laid back friendly place
I stayed with Jill for three months in the summer of 2014, while doing a fellowship in the area. The house is adorable, in an awesome location, clean, and very welcoming. Jill was a wonderful host, great person to get to know, helpful in learning about the area, and helped make my time in Boston a wonderful experience. Buddy and Angel are very sweet and well-behaved. Highly, highly recommend! Thanks Jill! :-)
My mom stayed here for a few nights. She loved the place. The unit is very attractive and clean. Jill is friendly and easy to communicate with. She also has a very friendly and well behaved dog. The neighborhood is one of the best in Boston. A very short walk to beautiful parks, restaurants, shopping and public transport.
she's a great host, welcome, kind. real great and wonderful moment with her. I recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that's sure
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!
