About this listing
The house is in close proximity to two public transit stations and a major bus line. Our home is located in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of the city. Jamaica Plain is a vibrant, young community with a lot to offer, and its a quick train or car ride into the center of the city.
We can provide a futon for additional sleeping accommodations if necessary.
This handsome 100 year-old single-family house with 10+ foot ceilings, stained glass windows, fireplace and modern furnishings has two spotless bedrooms available. Beautifully landscaped backyard with fire pit and vegetable garden is a great place to relax at the end of the day.
Large sunny room on third floor with private bath. Comfy queen bed, large closet, armoire, clean linens and towels, wifi and work table
On a beautiful street in the most coveted section of the hip Jamaica Plain (JP) neighborhood of Boston, we’re just 5 miles from the city center and only blocks away from the Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Pond and JP Centre. Safe, friendly, diverse neighborhood. Great restaurants, pubs, bakeries, galleries and shops.
We’re just a 10-minute walk to the Orange line subway into Back Bay/Newbury Street and downtown. A 2-minute walk to the bus to Longwood Medical area and museums. Plenty of parking and many nearby Zipcar and bike share locations. Off-street parking is also available. Laundry in basement.
Native Bostonian host happily provides history, recommendations, advice, maps, directions and more. Friendly house cat with short-hair and a loud purr will shack up with you if you leave your door open. We’ve hosted medical people from Argentina to Taiwan and travelers from Australia to Egypt.
Stay for 4 nights or 4 months – we’re flexible ... and looking forward to seeing you!
Other things to note

Native Bostonian. I lived here all my life except for a short period in San Francisco. I love to travel and experience other cultures, but haven't done as much as I'd like ... I've seen lots of the USA; some of Italy, Spain, Cuba, Mexico, Dominican Republic; little bits of Canada, St. Kitts, Bermuda. I have hosted people from US and Canada, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Italy, Nicaragua, Switzerland, Germany, Taiwan and Saudi Arabia.
I like to cook, play soccer, practice yoga, watch my kids play sports.
