Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • I had an amazing stay at Treetop Haven! Location, house amenities, everything was perfect! Thank you Maria Elena for your hospitality!

  • this is an excellent option for a Boston stay. easily accessed from airport and/or downtown on orange line. the accommodation was more than adequate. would be even nicer in spring/summer when you can use the deck etc for relaxation. only suggestion is that there needs to be somewhere to hang some clothes e.g. a business man or woman to be able to hang suits/work clothes etc.

  • Great experience staying at Maria Elena's. She was very helpful with her suggestions as to where to go and what to see. It was a perfect stay with me and my best friend. We loved the patio & the whole place in general, as well as the awesome Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Super cute and Highly recommended.

  • Treetop Haven was perfect for our stay in Boston. It's about 15 minute trip from downtown / touristy / historical area to the house via subway, but it was perfect and a great price.

    The neighborhood is super cool and authentic feeling, with a nice little market where the locals go in the morning to get coffee. And there are a few restaurants up the street. It's not where you'd go to party from another area in the city, but totally an awesome jumping off point for a Boston adventure.

    Maria was great. Met us when we arrived, gave us lots of info, and then we were off to adventure. If we needed anything, here and her roomates were there to help. But otherwise, we had the entire studio apartment at the top of the house to ourselves.

  • This was our first experience with Airbnb, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Though we weren't able to meet Maria personally, she was an excellent host. Our little apartment was cozy and truly felt like a home away from home. We took the train the entirety of our trip, and the proximity to the stop was so convenient. Jamaica Plain is a fantastic little neighborhood, with so much character. Make sure to take advantage of all that the locale has to offer!

  • Maria Elena was an excellent host and the room was spotless, very quiet with a beautiful terrace. Very close to public transport. The perfect place to stay in Boston.

  • A great place to stay! We were a party of two and stayed at Treetop Haven for 4 nights at the end of September. The apartment is absolutely adorable. It's comfortable, bright, clean and quiet. There is a private entrance and private bathroom. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with small versions of all the basic appliances (range/oven, microwave, kettle, fridge) which allowed us to make meals in the apartment; we even baked store-bought cookies one night. The private (and relatively large!) patio with outdoor seating is a huge plus. It makes the apartment feel a little bit bigger, gives you access to the outdoors and is very pleasant to spend time on. Cable TV and a fast wifi connection are available in the apartment. We met Maria on the first day and then had complete privacy for the rest of our stay. When we needed more toilet paper, it appeared immediately. The location is superb in a charming and vibrant neighborhood of JP, close to great restaurants, bars and cafes. The neighborhood is very safe; we didn't have any concerns even at night. We had a rental car and parking was no problem. Public transport (bus or subway) is a couple of blocks away if you need it. It's not far to the center of Boston. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Boston. It's a gem of a place. I highly recommend it. Take note that this is an upper apartment so there are stairs to climb to get to the entrance. In our case, it was perfect as it added to the privacy. Thanks Maria!

  • We loved our stay in Maria Elena's apt. We felt totally at home and comfortable. Jamaica Plain is a unique spot with lots of charm. We were very grateful to be lodged in such a personal environment, during our grandchild's birth, and found it very easy to take public transportation to and from the hospital. We hope to return many times. Thank you Maria Elena!

  • Everything about Maria's place is great from the location, living area and roof terrace. We had a fantastic stay at Maria's. The apartment is very characterful and well equipped, and Maria and her family were very friendly and helpful. The connection to central Boston was great, but woild also recommend spending time in the local area. We'd love to stay here again next time we're in Boston.

  • My husband and I had a great time visiting Boston and the accomodations were great. Maria's instructions were excellent and accounted for everything. Nothing was misrepresented and the pictures very accurately depicted the apartment. The balcony was a wonderful bonus. The communication with both Maria and Martine was excellent. We ended up spending more time in the Jamaica Plain than we had originally intended since it is a unique community with many park areas. Don't miss the Arboretum, there are more than 15,000 different trees including a bonsai exibit and it is free! We also exclusively used the subway and the buses which were very close and well documented and with a weekly pass costing $18 the value cannot be beat.

    We would definitely consider staying here again.

    Thanks Maria Elena.
