About this listing

Only 3 minutes to the subway and a mere 15 minutes to downtown Boston, this location is wonderful if you want to explore the city on foot. The apartment is also on the bike path which is popular for runners as well.

The Space

The room is private with lots of light. It has a double 'full-size' bed, closet space, and a nice desk area with WIFI. We welcome visitors to use the kitchen but this would mean we would be cooking together on week nights. We are a no smoking household but enjoy fine wine anytime.

There is plenty of unrestricted street parking around. Most people get a spot right in front of the apartment. (Parking in the condo parking lot is strictly prohibited - violators will be towed.)

The apartment doesn't have A/C. The room has a ceiling fan over the bed and when the windows are open there is a nice cross breeze. Warning: with the windows open you can hear the metro. Our guests tell us that it's not a problem, but I like to tell people in case you are super light sleepers.

Guest Access

Kitchen is available. No access to laundry available. Coffee and tea provided.

Interaction with Guests

We leave the house between 6:30am and 7:30am on week days. We're home most afternoons by 5:00pm (17:00). We don't mind if guests want to share the kitchen. We also understand that you are on vacation and may want to stay out very late. Late arrivals do not bother us in the least.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood of Jamaica Plain (JP) is full of unique shops and is considered the 'greenest' neighborhood of Boston because it is surrounded by parks, ponds, and paths. The Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Pond, Southwest Corridor Park, and Franklin park are all beautiful areas to explore - all in walking distance from the apartment.

Getting Around

Most of our guests come straight from the airport and, because we are so close to the subway, renting a car is not necessary. The neighborhood is very safe and we love to act as guides and tell you about the best places to eat, shop, and play.

House Rules

Please no smoking in the house. We are quiet folks who need to get up early for work/school. On the weekends we're very busy usually but enjoy sharing morning coffee/tea with guests and offering our ideas for how to spend the day. The house is very clean but comfortable.
