About this listing
Considering a trip to Jamaica Plain, one of Boston's most fun neighborhoods? Please contact us before booking.
The 3rd floor of our two-family home is a sprawling private room and bathroom with double bed futon and single bed option. Stretch out, do some yoga, enjoy the backyard, or explore. From our quiet street (with parking), you are steps from Jamaica Plain's eateries, green space, and public transportation. The 39 bus brings you to the medical area, Museum of Fine Arts and Back Bay. The Orange Line is a 5 minute walk and provides reliable, frequent service into town.
Jamaica Plain offers cafes, bookstores, and restaurants for every price range. Among its diverse residents are students and social workers, artists, and educators.
Concerned about your carbon footprint? We do what we can to minimize our impact on the planet, such as collecting and using rainwater for the garden, hanging laundry out to dry, and composting veggie scraps. Martha commutes by bike. Myra uses public transit. If you come with a bicycle, we have easily accessible indoor storage for it.
Your hosts offer free wi-fi, and a warm welcome to Red Sox Nation. We speak German, a bit of French, and are learning Spanish.
You are welcome to use the picnic table in the backyard.
We do not share our kitchen facilities with guests.
Talk to us if you need a blanket for an outdoor concert, for example.
Interaction with guests
We like to chat, but it's up to you.
Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood with cafes and locals who walk dogs, stroll with their kids, eat ice cream, and take a stand for justice in issues such as fair housing and support for local businesses.
The 39 bus to the medical area, Museum of Fine Arts, and Back Bay stops on the corner. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the subway which brings you to Back Bay, Downtown Crossing, and the Freedom Trail usually in less than 30 minutes.
Other things to note
Please keep in mind that to reach our attic space, there are stairs. This is a home, not a hotel with valet services. Bring luggage you can safely lift and carry yourself.
This is a non-smoking, pet-free property. We keep quiet hours between 10:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. for ultimate relaxation. Come and go on your own schedule, but turn off lights and heat/AC when you aren't in the room.
The main kitchen is not a shared space, but we'll make you coffee or tea. Use the microwave and mini-fridge on the third floor, but clean up any spills.
