The Space

Your own bedroom and full-sized bed in a 2-bedroom condo with a young, friendly couple in the funky, quiet, convenient and green neighborhood of Jamaica Plain.

A few highlights from our perspective (see our guidebook for exact locations):

A fun neighborhood in JP center (under 10 minutes walk):
- Fine Dining: Ten tables (Monday night $15 burger + beer for the cheapest fine dining experience you'll ever have!)
- Brunch: Centre Street Cafe, with a line out the door every Sat and Sun
- Ice Cream: JP Licks' flagship location, a Boston staple
- Cozy Irish bars: James' Gate, 1 block away
- Brewery Tours: Sam Adams, 1 mile away and offering free (!) tours
- Bakery: Canto 6 or Fiore's
- Supermarket: Harvest, 2 blocks away
- Soul food: Fill Belly's (for Chicken and Waffles)

Easy transportation:
- Private parking space behind the house
- Orange Line (2 blocks) takes you straight downtown, with easy transfers to every major line in Boston and Cambridge.
- 39 bus (across the street) takes you to the Longwood Medical (alright, maybe more useful for me), Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony area, with connections to the Fenway area.

Great parks:
- Jamaica Pond (10 minutes) run, boat, or fish at our favorite park
- The Arnold Arboretum (5 minutes) huge park with beautiful trees from around the world

Our house really is a cut above many you will find on here: a cozy, well maintained condo owned by a laid-back, professional married couple - we put a lot of love into our house and are eager to share it
- On-demand TV with Netflix and Hulu Plus
- Internet
- Central air conditioning and heating
- Huge kitchen and fridge with everything you need to prepare a great meal
- Washer / dryer

Friendly hosts:
- We promise!

JP is our favorite neighborhood in Boston, come find out why!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our stay with Patrick, Sarah and their awesome dog Penny was fantastic. We didn't see them a whole lot but they were excellent hosts, super friendly and able to answer any questions we had about Boston!

    The location in Jamaica Plain is convenient and there are plenty if things to do nearby including a few stores less than a minute away, a pub, the T and more. On top of that, we were recommended to check out Canto6, a local bakery which makes some of the best sandwiches ever and great coffee too.

    Anyone looking for a top place to stay in Boston should definitely get in touch with Patrick. Couldn't recommend their place more.

    Thanks guys!

  • Staying with Patrick and Sarah was a highlight of our trip. Breakfast, comfort bed, best dog ever and the nicest people ever. It's a dream come true. The neigherhood was also fantastic, with stores and bars and easy to find a street parking if you need one during the night.

    I wish everyone could have such a good time as we did.

    Good luck with everything Sarah and Patrick.

  • Patrick is a perfect host. The experience, environment and location is exactly what all Airbnb listings should be aiming for. A gentleman to deal with in a great location. I would not hesitate to recommend.

  • We had a great time staying at Patrick's place! Unfortunately we didn't get to actually meet Patrick and Sarah, but they were more than accommodating in their lovely apartment. I would highly recommend staying with them to anyone visiting Boston!

  • Patrick and Sarah were very nice to me and my fiancee. The house is clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed our time with Penny, their lovely dog! I strongly recommend everyone to stay with them!

  • Patrick is a great host and the place is similarly great; very accommodating and easy going. Great room, great location, everything just as good as advertised! Patrick was also a wealth of great information about the area and all his recommendations were right on in my opinion. This was my first Airbnb experience and it definitely exceed all expectations. Can't recommend them strongly enough.

  • We had the best time staying with Patrick and Sarah. They were friendly and outgoing hosts. They were helpful giving advice about the city and getting around. Penny the dog was awesome and a great reading partner during rainy days. Their condo was in an interesting and safe neighborhood with good restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance. The subway was less than 10 minutes away by foot and it took us directly downtown. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Boston.

  • Patrick and Sarah's place was really like our own house. I and my boyfriend loved the entire stay of 2 weeks. The house was clean and very homely. It is at a very convenient location from the T station. Grocery store, CVS and many eating joints are close by. Although we dint get to meet them in person, they still made wonderful hosts. They had everything arranged for us before our arrival and were in touch with us throughout the stay.
    I am really glad to pick this place for my vacation this summer in Boston and would highly recommend it to others too!
    Thanks again, Patrick and Sarah!

  • Patrick was kind enough to allow us to use his house while he was not there. We had a week in the house and enjoyed being able to relax and get caught up with emails, washing etc after being on our 3 week cruise from South America. It was a great base to explore Boston and we loved the Jamaica Plains area as well. Public transport into Boston is very easy to use. There are restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Patrick was organized prior to his departure and had some things for us to use for breakfast and also made arrangement with us about how to collect the key, use the TV, internet etc so we had no issues. We felt if we did have the opportunity to meet Patrick we would have enjoyed his company very much - Patrick and Sarah's house reflects a wonderful warmth and calm and I can thoroughly recommend it.

  • We had an amazing stay at Patrick and Sarah’s. This place was everything we were looking for – and more…. We love to travel, but we had higher needs than usual on this particular trip to Boston - Heather was six months pregnant, and we happened to be there during the unfortunate time of the Boston marathon bombings. With everything that was happening, we felt incredibly safe in the beautiful neighbourhood of Jamaica Plain, and our hosts were fantastic, making sure we were ok and doing everything they could to help ensure that our experience of the city would be as positive as possible given the circumstances. After long days of trying to ‘see it all’, it was nice to come back and put up our feet up in a nice, clean, comfortable, safe place! The house is steps away from the T – which is a great way to travel and see Boston, but DO make sure you take the time to explore Jamaica Plain as well – there are some beautiful neighbourhoods, great coffee shops, and fun neighbourhood pubs . The place was super quiet, super clean, Patrick and Sarah are great, and their mini-dog is the cutest thing!! Patrick and Sarah are very accommodating, and were very easy to communicate with before and during our trip. We highly recommend this place & these people to anyone!!!

Hi there, My wife Sarah and I come as a package deal - a couple of compulsive travelers living in Boston, MA. We're friendly folks from the West Coast - she from California, me from Alaska (and then California) and love meeting new people. I'm a doctor doing a Pediatrics and Internal Medicine residency in Boston, and she has a far more interesting job. We share our home with a friendly chihuahua mix named Penny (see our profile pics). We never stay at home for long - our most recent trips were to Chiapas, London, Paris and Patagonia. We look forward to meeting you! Your Friend Patrick
