We had an excellent stay in Patrick's apartment. It is very spacious and all the necessary equipments was provided. Patrick provided a "arrival kit" (instructions, breakfast, Boston guide, washbag, etc.).
Furthermore, the location is ideal because the apartment is situated next to a subway station.
Patrick was very helpful and he was very nice.
I deeply recommend this apartment.
Patrick was a wonderful host and the place was just what we were looking for. This was our first airbnb experience and it was without any problems. I would recommend Patrick and his place to others!
The place was absolutely fantastic. Would definitely recommend
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.
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.
About the Host, Patrick
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!
