The space

Private room with a private bath in Jamaica Plain, a diverse neighborhood of Boston. Room overlooks a quiet garden with lots of natural light. The room has a queen bed so it it suitable for a single or a couple. House has central air conditioning, high-speed wireless network, modern kitchen and laundry facilities that guests are welcome to use. The house is on four levels so there are three staircases each with a landing mid way-the bedroom is one flight up from ground level.

There are several grocery stores nearby (walk to Whole Foods) as well as many restaurants, coffee shops, sandwich shops, bakeries and bars. Jamaica Pond with walking and jogging trails is less than 1/2 mile away.

The house is a 7 minute walk from the Green Street Station on the Orange Line (subway to Back Bay and Downtown)and even closer to the bus lines that serve the Longwood Medical Center and the Museum of Fine Arts. I have hosted doctors and scientists working at Beth Israel, Brigham and Women's, Harvard Medical School and School of Public Health, Children's Hospital and Tuft's (New England) Medical Center.

There is ample free and unrestricted on-street parking if you happen to be driving. There is one bike available for guest use. There are over 40 Zipcars within walking distance if you want to travel.

I am a single male and I live in the house with my 30 pound Spanish Water Dog (non-shedding). I request a minimum of a 4 night stay. Long term rentals are at a lower rate.

Guest access

Guests can use kitchen, dining room, garden, living room and study. WiFi internet and washer dryer.

Interaction with guests

My interaction with guests vary. Usually I will see them in the morning and at night. I will make suggetions and recommendations based on what they are doing.

The neighborhood

Jamaica Plain is a diverse neighborhood of Boston that is close to almost everything. It has a great selection of shops, groceries, restaurants and bars. One will find professionals, artists, craftsmen, laborers of all ethnicities and of course the hipsters.

Getting around

Room is very close to the Green Street Station on the Orange Line Subway to downtown Boston and Back Bay. Also very near the 39 Bus Route to Longwood Medical, Harvard Medical School and Back Bay.

Other things to note

I look forward to hosting you.
