Cozy and Convenient Sun-Soaked Room

Apartment - Private room · Bynner St, Boston, MA 02130, United States

The Space

Come stay with us in Boston's hippest neighborhood - Jamaica Plain! "JP", as it's known to the locals, is the perfect mix of urban proximity and small-town charm.

Make yourself at home with a private bedroom and a super comfy single bed for one guest with side-by-side trundle available for a second. You're welcome to make use of our well-equipped eat-in kitchen (including space in the fridge), our cozy living room, and relax outside in our small front garden/patio. Complimentary fresh-brewed, organic coffee is provided each morning.

[Note: the furniture has been moved around in the common areas since photos were taken. We'll be updating soon. Guests can now share our cozy couch and relax in our armchairs in a plant-filled living room. There is no longer a dining room, but rather an eat-in kitchen. Please let us know if you have questions/concerns about the new layout.]

Our location is perfect for exploring all that Boston has to offer. We are conveniently-located close to public transit connecting us to the Longwood Medical Area, Copley Square, Newbury Street, and Kenmore Square/Fenway Park (via the 39 bus and the Green-E Line) PLUS the North and South Ends, Financial District, and Downtown Crossing (via the Orange Line). We are a 2-minute walk to the 39 bus line, a 12-minute walk to the Stony Brook Station on the Orange Line, and a 10-minute walk to the Heath Street Station on the Green E Line of the subway. Door-to-door, you're anywhere in Boston you want to be in 30 minutes flat or less. Free street parking is readily available in the neighborhood.

Our apartment is close to Centre Street in Jamaica Plain, a 5-minute walk to Whole Foods and a variety great dining and café options. We are also just a short, 15-minute walk to scenic Jamaica Pond - an amazing place to walk or jog, plus boat rentals are available by the hour during the summer months. For you cyclists out there, we're mere minutes to both the Jamaicaway and the Southwest Corridor bike paths.

During your stay, you'll meet the two of us plus our adorable dog Sophie. We're a friendly, outdoorsy, foodie family and are happy to suggest our favorite places to eat/adventure/explore. We'd love to host you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Maura and Aidan were extremely welcoming and friendly hosts. They made sure I had everything I needed during my stay in this cozy, sunny room. The location was fantastic- just steps from Whole Foods and close to public transportation that takes you right into the city. I would highly recommend staying here!

  • This is my second time staying with Maura and Aidan. As always they were extremely warm and welcoming hosts. Their apartment is easy to get to and there is plenty of street was very easy and perfect for a quick stay in Boston. Would recommend them to anyone!

  • The location is great - short stroll to city links via bus and tram. Lovely park and arboretum just around the corner - the leaves at this time of year were amazing. Cosy room, super-comfy bed, great setup - the kitchen is equipped with everything you may need to make a 5 star meal, including a rice boiler! I had a wonderful time with Maura and Aidan. They made me feel most welcome, and even answered all my baseball questions during the World Series final - go Red Sox!! Thanks again for a lovely time. Would recommend staying with Maura and Aidan if you're looking for a home away from home.

  • Maura and Aidan were wonderful hosts; they made us feel right at home. The room was cozy and clean, and there was even a nice little basket of toiletries for those of us who forgot q-tips and lotion. :) We were greeted by the friendly and affectionate Sophie, which was welcome as we were missing out cats back home. Maura and Aiden were very friendly, and didn't mind hanging out with us in the living room for a chat in the evenings. They were also very helpful, with recommendations for breakfast and last minute wedding supplies (we were attending a wedding in Boston). Their apartment was, by far, the best we stayed in on the east coast. We'd love to stay with them again if our travels take us back to Boston! Thanks you guys!

  • Maura & Aidan were the most wonderful hosts you can imagine! They made us feel at home from the very first moment until our departure. The house is in a calm neighbourhood and Maura & Aidan decorated their flat with love for the detail. Their recommendations for Boston, for Jamaica Plain and even for the cities of the rest of our US-trip were very helpful. They are such a lovely, considerate, communicative couple. Thank you so much for these wonderful days, we could spend with you. Definitely recommend staying at their place and would go there anytime again!!!

  • I have nothing but positive things to say about our stay with Maura an Aidan (and Kaya). My husband and I had a great time during the day exploring the excellent recommendations they gave us, and in the evening relaxing and chatting with this fun couple. The bed was very comfortable and the room comes equipped with soft sheets, pillows, and towels -as well as maps of the city and free wifi. We both are looking forward to catching up with these two again in the future! Thank you Maura and Aidan!

  • Maura and Aidan were fabulous hosts. I felt most welcome immediately in their lovely apartment. I stayed there for three nights during a short vacation and the apartment was perfect for me, conveniently located close to a subway station. I appreciated the yummy coffee in the morning and the offer for tipps for good spots to visit in Boston. When my way brings me back to Boston one day, I know where to stay :-)

    May 2013
  • Amazing hosts! Approachable, generous, helpful. During my stay with Maura and Aidan, I felt comfortable and well accommodated. They are both just really nice people. The bed is comfortable and living environment is quiet. The home is close to three different types of public transportation, within easy walking distance to all of them. There are also two nearby grocery stores to choose (website hidden) is a great area to live; lots of good restaurants and neat shops. Overall a great experience and recommended!

    May 2013
  • I stayed here for two weeks while working in Boston. Maura and Aidan were great hosts. They went out of their way to make me feel at home, and were always there when I had a question about Boston, using the T, etc. It is close to the T and there is tons of parking in their neighborhood. I don't know Boston very well, and this place was in a perfect location for me to get to work and to go into the city. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to explore Boston, but it is especially conducive to a long-term stay for work, school, etc.

    March 2013
  • Maura & Aidan where great guest, I felt very welcomed to their place and I wish I could have stayed longer.
    Their place is in a peaceful neighbourhood with a bus stop and a whole foods right down the street, very convenient. The room has a comfy bed and looks out over the street.

    Thank you for being awesome hosts!
