About this listing
My apartment is located in Jamaica Plain, a diverse and safe neighborhood in Boston! The apartment has a shared bathroom, available eat in kitchen and your own private bedroom with a desk and a gigantic TV in the main living space. LGBTQ friendly, no drugs, smoking, or alcohol. I do have a small dog, extremely friendly, warm and loving. The room does have AC and Wifi available. The pictures show a pull out bed, the bed is not a pull out, it is a double bed that fits two comfortably. Sorry, pictures will be updated soon to show the double bed. **NOTE**As a response from Air bnb feedback, I now live in space alone, there is no longer a roommate.
The house is conveniently located on a major street in the neighborhood. The bedroom is located in the rear of the house so the noise is less then it would be in the front.. My apartment is quiet and I am not around much. We are walking distance from the bus and train stations.
There are several grocery stores nearby (walk to Harvest Co-op and whole foods is less then a mile.-which absolutely amazing!) I am also located next to many restaurants, coffee shops, sandwich shops, bakeries and bars. Walking distance to public transportation to downtown Boston. Also close to hospitals, colleges, Universities and Fenway Park! You can also hop on to the T and be in Faneuil Hall or Chinatown in 20 minutes.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Private room in a peaceful space was exactly as described. Perfect space for a student or business traveler (desk, aircon, bookshelves, and comfy bed). Robin is a fantastic host. I was here for three weeks and she managed to make it feel like home. Whether food, activities, or everyday necessities, Robin can direct you to the best of Jamaica Plain and Boston. You won't want to leave by the end of your visit. The neighborhood is lovely. Easy commute to the rest of Boston, but just far enough out to get away from the noise of city. This was really helpful in the summer given tourist crowds. Sammi (the resident dog) is a treat too! Incredibly patient and friendly.
Robin was a kind and generous host and made us feel at home right away. We loved having access to the kitchen and other shared spaces as well as our private bedroom. We managed to stay cool and comfortable on some hot summer days, and we enjoyed sharing some puppy love with Sammi. All in all, Robin's place was perfect for us!
Great hostess. Extremely helpful. Fantastic location: Easily accessed by public transportation and great restaurants very nearby
Robin was a gracious host and I enjoyed my time in her home. The room was clean and comfortable. The house is in a convenient location, on the main street in JP, with buses running right in front of the house. I enjoyed my 10 minute walk to the T Station every day through pleasant residential neighborhoods. A co-op and a fantastic bakery (with decadent vegan-friendly treats) were just steps away. Sammie was also wonderful company - a very well-behaved, friendly dog. I felt like I got a good deal for my money and would recommend it to anyone I know.
Robin was a fantastic host during our trip up to Boston for the weekend. She made sure we had everything we needed and everything exceeded our expectations.
The location itself was nice to walk around, as there were many neat coffee shops, artistic studios, and monuments/old churches to see.
Would definitely recommend for those looking for those looking for a cozy, welcoming place to stay in a cute, artsy suburb of Boston.
Robin was super hospitable and welcoming! The private room was perfect for me and my four night stay. Use of the kitchen and refrigerator space for food I bought at the farmer's market across the street was great! I loved being able to come and go as I pleased and just being in a chill space. The room is also close to a lot of cool restaurants, shops, and the T, which was super important for me. Robin's dog Sammie is as sweet as can be. I wish I could've stayed longer. Thanks Robin!

Hi there, I'm GLBTQ friendly. An avid dancer, I dance Country 2 Stepping, Line dancing, Contra and all types of Swing. I have a very very sweet dog (Sammi) that loves everyone. I'm very busy, not home much. I enjoy hosting and meeting people from all walks of life. The 5 things I can't live without are: (not in any particular order) dancing, TV, Movies, Bike, family, friends. Opps, I ran past my 5 ;-) I also have been told my many people that I have an good sense of humor, my motto in life is "Learn to bend so you don't have to break".
