Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Many thanks to Alishya for being so helpful! The apartment is wonderfully decorated, very comfortable and close enough to the subway. The cats are very sociable, if rather fond of sneaking into the bedroom. There is an excellent selection of books on the shelves and great art on the walls, which adds to the joy of being there. Great food for thought, then, but there's also a good supermarket up the street for real food.
    All in all, we are very happy with our stay and look forward to coming again.
    Isabelle, Alain and two of our children.

  • Alishys's home is lovely. It is comfortable, warm, and inviting, and very well designed. The two cats were charming and no problem at all. The only small problems are that it is located on the main street in town, which made parking a problem some nights of our three week stay, and the flight of stairs is difficult for two seventy-two year olds to manage. Otherwise it is a perfect home away from home.

  • This sunny and made-me-feel-home-place was just perfect!! It was even better that i´ve expected it. Its comfortable, warm, very clean, nice decorated and more! i would highly recommend Alishyas appartement for a stay in Boston! She is a very nice person and takes care a lot! She even left us some Boston Maps at her home and gave us here own Charlie Card. So nice!

    Jamaica Plain is magnificant and a very special neighbourhood. It felt like home after three days. Nice people, nice restaurants around and you can go for a walk . You only need around 30 mns to be Downtown Boston. The T is just around the corner and there is a bus taking you there.
    This was my first air bnb experience and because of Alishya the best. Everything was uncomplicated (check-in, check-out, any questions...) and you will get two lovely roomates who are tryin´to sneak in your bedroom: the cats :-)
    We really loved that place!

  • I would definitely recommend anybody traveling to Boston to consider staying at this lovely home. Alishya was extremely helpful and communicative, and her place has a fantastic energy to it. It is also very conveniently located walking distance from all of the cool things happening in Jamaica Plains (in my opinion, one of the most exciting parts of town, and I speak from experience, having spent 3 years in Boston for college), as well as from the Orange and Green T lines, and several bus lines.

  • Alishya was very friendly and welcoming; her apartment is lovely, well decorated, the beds are incredibly comfy and the cats are easy-going. Jamaica Plain is a nice area with lots of shops and restaurants. We have had a great time in Boston and it has a lot to do with Alishya and her fantastic place!

I am originally from California, but currently enjoying living in Boston. I am a doctor completing my training in adult internal medicine and pediatrics at a number of hospitals in Boston. I have been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling both for work and for pleasure, and really enjoy meeting new people and exploring other countries. The work I do in resource-limited countries is one of the most meaningful aspects of my job.
