Super Studio--Best Location in JP!

House - Entire home/apt · Spring Park Ave, Boston, MA 02130, United States

Our 450 sf studio is quiet, private, and ideally situated in the heart of JP-a 4 min. walk to the subway. It offers a super comfy bed, a good size closet, and all the necessities--wifi, large eat-in kitchen, new bathroom and free on-street parking.

The Space

Our studio apartment is on the 2nd floor rear of our 1868 Jamaica Plain Victorian home.

Ascend your back stairs to your fully private entrance. The studio is filled with windows and drenched in natural light as you sit among the tree tops. There is a wonderful full eat-in-kitchen with stainless appliances, a brand new 3/4 bath, hardwood floors with area rugs.

The space is 450 sq. ft and is home to a super comfy bed, a good size closet, and all the necessary furnishings... including coffee maker and toaster... and offers a private but spacious and open feeling. You will be completely private as the studio is separated from the rest of our house by a sound-proof wall and the private entrance.

Jamaica Plain is the best neighborhood in Boston for its proximity to lovely Victorian houses, beautiful Jamaica Pond, the Emerald Necklace, and the Arnold Arboretum -- but also for its simple access to Longwood Medical Center and downtown. We are a 4 minute walk to the Stony Brook station of the Orange line subway. There are many pubs, coffee shops and restaurants within a few blocks as well as a Whole Foods Market and a laundromat.

Beautifully furnished for a single traveler or a couple, you will not find a more lovely space that's more centrally located to everything Boston has to offer.

Amenities include a super-comfy leather coachman recliner, a pull out sofa bed, broadband wifi, HD cable TV, blu-ray player, stereo, and great set of speakers... oh, and plenty of free on-street parking-no special permit required.

We are an active family of four (two sons 9 & 11), and we've hosted dozens of international guests from all over the world -- many of whom have become good friends! We're happy to have you as a guest and look forward to giving you the best advice for your stay "in town".

Our studio will make you feel like you've found your home away from home.

Guest Access

Our guests enjoy a completely private entrance to our sunny studio. There is free on-street parking available--many of our guests park their car and choose to explore Boston by public transportation or bike (using our great Hubway system).

Interaction with Guests

The studio is a separate apartment from our home which is attached. We love to personally welcome our guests when they arrive if possible, and are always available for any questions or concerns. Your privacy and enjoyment is important to us, so we always respect your personal space.

The Neighborhood

JP is the best neighborhood in Boston! Wander our streets filled with restored Victorian homes and beautiful gardens. It's hard to believe that you are only a few minutes away from the heart of Boston by convenient subway. The folks who live here are a great mix of artists, professionals, musicians, etc. We have a vibrant center with many local-owned cafes, pubs and zagat-rated restaurants. The area has lots of green space between Jamaica Pond, the Arnold Arboretum, and Southwest Corridor Park.

Getting around

There are several bus lines that run within 2 blocks of our place that also go into town as well as Longwood hospital area and the Museum of Fine Arts. Rent a bike at any of the 4 JP Hubway rental stations and explore the sites and green spaces.

  • Chris and Kristina's place is great! Very clean, everything was as promised, and Kristina was always there when we needed her with helpful tips for transit, restaurants and things to see (or avoid). We loved the area - Jamaica Plain is beautiful - it was very walkable and close to the orange line "T" station. We even walked to the Samuel Adams Brewery tour. I would definitely recommend this to a single person or couple looking for a nice place in Boston. We hope to stay there again if we're ever in the area!

  • Chris and Kristina's studio was perfect for our stay. It was very warm even if it was cold outside. They even allowed us to check in early. It was very near the T and the neighborhood is beautiful.

  • We loved our stay here. The apartment was exactly advertised and very comfortable. Their neighborhood in Jamaica Plain was full of charm. They are very convenient to the T, making a trip downtown very quick. We ate some great good in the area at Chris and Kristina's recommendation, including fantastic burritos at the Purple Cactus and wonderful sandwiches at City Feed and Supply. Check in and check out couldn't have been easier. They were very responsive when we had a question. We always found a parking spot right in front.

  • Chris & Kristina were incredible Hosts. The studio was adorable. They even put up blinds for me to make it more private. The location was (website hidden) is an awesome neighborhood. The studio is walking distance from restaurants, shops & bars. And, the T is a few blocks away. Win, win! I highly recommend staying at the Super Studio.

  • We stayed at Chris & Kristina's lovely apartment for a whole month while we were moving and couldn't have asked for better hosts.

    Everything from the check-in process, the cleanliness, the supplied equipment and the great area ended up in a great stay for us.

    The apartment is located on a quiet side street in the neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, walking distance to several restaurants, bars, public transport to downtown and parks.

  • Great location. Hosts were very communicative and helpful.

    December 2013
  • It's a lovely studio with lovely ammenities and a super accomodating host (is that the right word?)
    The only downside was that we were there while it was super cold and the place was a bit chilly. There was a space heater, but a better heating system would have made a bit of a difference. The location is unbeatable for it's green environs and quick walk to the T and the kitchen is great for self-catering.
    The bathroom is right next to the bed with a folding door, which makes toileting very intimate, so stay with people you know really well.

  • Staying in Kristina and Chris's sweet studio in JP was a delightful experience! They welcomed us warmly and invited us to feel at home. They managed a perfect balance of accessibility and privacy. The studio was completely equipped with everything we needed for our three night stay. The neighborhood offers many fine cafes and shops within walking distance, including our favorite fair-trade, organic coffee house and market, City Feed and Supply. Kristina, Chris and their two boys are life-loving, enthusiastic folks. It was an absolute pleasure to meet them. We look forward to staying with the Wirth family again some day!

About
We are Chris and Kristina. We met more than 20 years ago and have lived in Boston ever since. We are both professionals (Kristina works in Higher-Ed and I work for a technology company). We have lived in our 1868 Victorian for over 10 years and love our space in JP. We have lived all over Boston but have always considered Jamaica Plain the best neighborhood in town... partly because it is a true neighborhood. Nowhere else in the city can you be 5-minutes from dense nature that obscures the hustle and bustle of urban life by Jamaica Pond or the Arboretum, while still being minutes from Fenway Park, Longwood medical center, and great restaurants! We have two sons, 11 & 10, and we love to avail ourselves of the city and community we love. We coach baseball, basketball, and soccer, and love to explore, meet new people, and share what we know about Boston with anyone interested. For many years we hosted international students coming to Boston to study English and have hosted folks from Korea, Japan, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, and Kazakhstan. These former guests are now good friends and we enjoyed being their ambassadors to Boston. We welcome you to our space!
