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 and armoire. Second room on second floor with double futon, private deck, large closet and shared bathroom. Wifi, cable, work table, clean linen and towels.

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 locations. Off-street parking is also available. Laundry in basement.

Light breakfast of coffee, tea, juice, yogurt and granola or hard-boiled eggs provided.

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 2 nites or two months – we’re flexible ... and looking forward to seeing you!

  • Maria's home was lovely and we definitely enjoyed our stay. A very nice aspect was the private bathroom and the breakfast items that were made available to us during our stay.....very nice. Freddie the cat is a sweetie! Also, be advised if you have problems with stairs, the guest room is on the third floor of the home (not unusual for an older home in this area), but just wanted to say this for situational awareness. We very much enjoyed our stay with Maria and her family.

  • We stayed with Maria for five days. Wonderful place, clean, organized. Maria was very helpful and she even helped me with the washer and dryer. Would definitely stay at her place next time.

I am a consultant in the field of affordable housing finance and preservation.
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.
