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.
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.
My partner and I had a great stay here while we were in town for the Boston Marathon. The house is in a very nice neighborhood, and our room was very comfortable, clean, and just as the photos look online. We would definitely stay here again. There is a huge arboretum and several other parks in walking distance. We loved walking around JP and we were also pleased with how easily and quickly you could get to rapid transit to go to downtown Boston.
Martha and Myra were very helpful and thoughtful. We enjoyed chatting with them and felt very welcome at their place. We highly recommend staying here!
Gracious, accommodating hosts, and a spotless, welcoming space, exactly as advertised. Very comfortable bed. Parking on the quiet, dead-end, but brightly lighted street was no problem, even when arriving after dark. And the location is very convenient, both as to driving in all directions and taking nearby public transportation into the city. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby.
Martha and Myra were friendly and helpful. Their place was lovely, clean, and located in a quite area. 39 bus to town is just outside the house, otherwise T station 10min walk. Jamaica pond nearby made for a nice Saturday morning walk. Really enjoyed our stay!
My parents really enjoyed staying here. The place was nice and cozy with lots of natural light available. The rooms were comfortably furnished and warm. It was a convenient location to get to restaurants and public transportation. Martha and Myra were great hosts. My parents say they would definitely stay here again for future visits! :)
Martha was a great host, and was flexible when my flight cancellation suddenly changed my arrival time. The room was spacious and well-stocked with all the essentials -- I felt like I had complete privacy the entire time. The neighborhood was safe and fun, with many options for food, shopping, and just wandering around.
I had a very positive experience at Martha's. The room was just as it looks and is clean and private with its own bathroom. The location is great if you're looking for to be downtown Jamaica Plain or a quick T ride into the city. Martha and Myra were both very friendly and accommodating. Thanks for providing a cozy and quiet place to get some sleep!
It is very quiet and lovely neighborhood. The room and bed is very comfortable. Very easy to go down town Boston. Very good for those that are looking for were to stay out of the city.
