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.

The space

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!

We had a great time at Maria's place. We stayed for almost four weeks and enjoyed our stay very much. Maria is a great host. Always helpful and friendly. She was always open for a chat and happy to share things. The room is very nice with a comfortable bed, closet, air conditioning and a small desk. To have our private bath was very nice. So it almost felt as if we had our own apartment. The house is located in a very quiet street, but close to Center Street with bars, restaurants and small shops. There is even a pond and park around the corner. By bus it is easy to reach Boston city center. So I can just recommend this place! Thanks Maria!

Maria is a very gracious host. She welcomed us in her home, showed us where to find things around the house, and showed us which shops and restaurants in the neighborhood are reasonably priced and worth going to. Her house is cozy, very clean, and located in a quiet neighborhood. The bedroom and private bath are spacious, very clean, and comfortable. The house is about a 15-minute walk to the nearest station, at a nice leisurely pace. It would have been a problem upon arrival and departure since Boston was the last leg of our trip and my husband and I were lugging around 2 pieces of heavy luggage each. We were planning to take a cab but Maria went the extra mile by picking us up at the station and driving us back for our flight home. Definitely a place we look forward to going back to!

This was our first AirBnB experience and Maria made it excellent. Her home was lovely and we were welcomed warmly by both her and her son (not to mention a friendly kitty). A nice touch was the lindor on our pillows. We had a bathroom to ourselves which made things easier and so we didn't feel in the way of the family's day to day business. Overall a great introduction to the air bnb world and thanks to Maria for providing a great stay.

Maria welcomed me upon my arrival. She accompanied me to the third floor accommodations which consisted of a private bedroom (queen bed) and bath. The room was quite spacious with a wardrobe for clothes and a comfy bed. The bath had a great walk-in shower and plenty of room for all your toiletries. I was visiting family so left early each morning and returned for bed each night. Maria was a gracious host checking to make sure everything was ok.

I had a very lovely and comfortable room with plenty of space. Jamaica plain is a great place to stay and there is easy access into the city, local shops and Jamaica Pond is just down the road. Maria is a fantastic host and I absolutely loved staying in her home. You arrive a stranger, leave as a friend. Many thanks Maria!

I had a great stay at Maria's! The house is beautiful and in a quiet neighborhood full of gardens and wildlife which made me feel at home in such a big city. It was located just 15-20 minutes from the training I was attending and I couldn't have hoped for better accommodations. My room on the third floor provided comfortable solitude and respite after my long days in class.

This was my first AirB&B experience. Jamaica Plain was a great place to start each day and the Boston transit system works well with Maria's house. The third floor accommodations worked well and felt comfortable for my two boys.

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.
