Our 450 sf 2 room studio is quiet, private & ideally situated in the heart of Jamaica Plain-just a 4 min. walk to the Orange Line subway and buses. It offers a super comfortable bed, a recliner, and all the necessities-wifi, HD cable TV, large eat-in kitchen, and free on-street parking.
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 3/4 bath (shower, no tub), and original hardwood floors with area rugs.
The space is 450 sq. ft and is home to a super comfy bed, a 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 and has a private entrance.
Amenities include a super-comfy leather coachman recliner, a sofa bed, free broadband wifi, HD cable a 42" TV, blu-ray player (with a selection of movies). We provide soap, shampoo, towels, a hairdryer, and an ironing board for your convenience. Oh, and free on-street parking-no special permit required.
Jamaica Plain is the best neighborhood in Boston for its proximity to lovely Victorian homes, 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.
We are an active family of four (two sons 12 & 14), 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.
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).

Otherwise we have no real "rules" except common courtesy please.
We always want our guests to feel as much at home as possible, so feel free to do so. Should you need something or have a question, just ask! We are always happy to help.
Most of all, enjoy your visit here in our studio!

We are Chris and Kristina. We met more than 25 years ago and have lived in Boston ever since. We are both professionals (Kristina works in Higher-Ed and Chris runs an education technology company). We have lived in our 1868 Victorian for over 15 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, 13 & 12, and we love to avail ourselves of the city and community we love. We coach baseball, basketball, and flag football, 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!
