Interaction with Guests
We respect our guests' privacy so after an initial meeting to check in we keep out of your way.
International guests: Please make sure your visa/work permits are in order. We cannot refund your money if you are unable to come because your paperwork was not in order. No smoking indoors, only on the deck. No pets. Will consider a small cat or dog. Come and go as you please. No loud music please. Own housekeeping during your stay. Linens, towels and kitchen linens provided. We leave you with enough basic supplies such as toilet paper, coffee, etc., but if you need more, the understanding is that you will buy them yourself. That is how we keep our prices low. Coffee, tea and cocoa provided free. Additional breakfast for initial morning can be purchased for an additional fee of $10-20. Only 2 adults allowed - will consider small child with parents. IF YOU BRING IN AN ADDITIONAL PERSON, YOU WILL BE EVICTED IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND BECAUSE OF CITY LAWS. THE PLACE IS TOO SMALL FOR MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE. Please request a cot if needed. Also be aware that we work during the day and cannot always let you in before 5 pm. However, we will make every reasonable effort to get you in as soon as possible. Finally, please be mindful that this is a guest house, NOT a hotel. We are better than a hotel because we offer way lower prices and a place that is like home. However, please take care of the place, don't shine your shoes with the towels (we provide a shoe-shine kit) and just generally be as mindful as if you were staying in a relative's home. Thank you for your consideration.
We have stayed at the Haven several times and it always is excellent. The accommodations are homey in the best sense of the word, immaculate, and well maintained. The hosts are wonderful people and excellent and responsive stewards of their facility. We love Boston, Jamaica Plain, and the Haven plays a central role in our wonderful trips to the area.
We had a really good stay here! We only met Maria briefly but she was awesome! She made sure it was easy for us to check in and out even though we arrived really late. The location was also really close to public transport too which was really convenient.
We had a fantastic time at your place. It was in a great location, with great service, and even better people. I would definitely recommend this for any one who is going to be traveling to Boston and we plan on coming back on our visit!
I enjoyed my stay at Treetop Haven and Maria Elena was very helpful with valuable recommendations on shopping, public transportation and driving routes. It's a wonderful retreat after a busy conference or sightseeing day.
Maria Elena and her daughter were fantastic hosts! The place was perfect for what I needed; comfortable, small, and charming. The close proximity to the T and the wonderful neighborhood were just amazing bonuses. I look forward for another opportunity to visit Boston and stay at their place!
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at Maria's! She is a responsible and considerate host.
The room is clean, and exactly as described.And it is very close to the subway station.
El espacio del cuarto y su total independencia lo hicieron muy agradable, Un cuarto muy completo y nos hizo sentir que estabamos como en casa.
Gracias Letty por su recomendacion. De veras que me da pena que dude de sus intenciones que estuvieron un poco tarde pero hemos tenido unas experiencias un poco malas ultimamente donde los huespedes tenian expectativas de poder llegar a todas horas, etc., como si fuera un hotel de cadena donde estan habiertos por 24 horas. Si alguna vez quieran volver a
Boston les daremos una rebaja por ser tan gentiles. Atentamente, Maria Elena
