Apartment - Private room · South St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130, United States

The Space

This room is located in my apartment. It is the TV room and is private. This room is a pass through for the back bedroom, which is rented out to a male person. He's very quiet and respectful. It's a perfect space for a last minute bed., the room does have plenty of privacy. In general the room is really perfect for 1-5 night stay's.

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.GLBT 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 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 int he 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!

  • Robin was not here during the weekend we came and immediately offers her own rooms and beds. I did not meet her personally but we communicated by mail and their was no problem for check-in and check-out.

  • Booked the place last minute and had a great experience staying with Robin. Room was lovely, bed was comfortable, shower was excellent and the dog is just the cutest little thing! Thanks for a wonderful stay. Would recommend to all. Thanks very much, TONY

  • This was my first time using AirBNB and I'm so glad that it was such a positive experience. Given that this room costs as much as a shared room with 3-5 strangers in a hostel, I appreciated this deal-- and the privacy and safety I felt in her very cozy home. Robin really made me feel like I was at home in being able to use her kitchen and bathroom. With regards to the bedroom, I felt that my privacy was respected and never felt compromised. I will also point out that she is hilarious.

    Her dog Sammi is an absolute sweetheart. Robin also had a full extension outlet I could use to charge my phone, laptop, and camera battery and the wifi was great.

    As I used only public transit in Boston, the room's location was extremely convenient-- the 39 bus is right there and the T is a 10 minute walk away. Great eats line the street for 4 blocks in either direction (but if you ask me, hit up Fiore's which is a 2-minute walk for a great, 2 meal sandwich). Robin also offered great information as to what to visit when in Boston and was overall, very friendly. My room, sheets, bathroom, and kitchen were all clean and well kept. She even left me a York Peppermint Patty on the pillow which I gobbled immediately and also made sure I had a towel and washcloth when I arrived.

    Getting to the room was a little confusing, but that was less because of Robin or her instructions and more because of the layout of Jamaica Plain itself, which, per most JP residents, is a little "wonky" (to use a technical term). But it doesn't take very long to get the hang of JP.

  • Robin was a wonderful host. She was full of recommendations for what to do in the area - contra dancing was a fun option, although her house was also great for just being lazy in pajamas and watching movies. She gave us full access to the kitchen, which was fun because there was a little food co-op right down the block. The neighborhood is quaint, with a large brick library and a mix of local restaurants - we settled on Dominican food, from a selection of Mexican, Ethiopian, and Middle Eastern options, among many others. Even though we only stayed for a short time, Robin's home was perfect for our purposes - comfortable, inviting, and cozy. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Robin was very kind and responsive via email and text. We never actually met since my girlfriend and I were out and about most of the time, but her home was very well kept and clean.

  • Robin is a great host! Communication was very easy and she is really helpful, funny and friendly. Her dog is also really sweet. The house is easy to reach by public transport, about 30 minutes from downtown Boston but also close to the center of Jamaica Plain and the beautiful Jamaica Pond.

About
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 bust and am not home much. I enjoy hosting people 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".
