About This Listing
In an apartment on the first floor of a home in Newton Centre, the guest bedroom is furnished with a full sized bed, comfortable mattress, and plenty of space for luggage and personal belongings. A shared bathroom is right down the hall, as is the kitchen and other rooms in the front part of the house. It is quiet in the back of the house and has its own thermostat, cable/wifi, a window A/C unit, and will come with sheets/towels, closet space, a dresser for your clothing, etc. Your room is always clean and private. It is two blocks from the Newton Centre Green Line T stop, plenty of buses, and all the shops and restaurants of Newton Centre. As well, it is very close to I-95, Route 9 or the Mass Pike. You're welcome to use the fridge and do some light cooking if you're stay will be lengthy. (Please note that the kitchen is Kosher style - and I do not allow shellfish or pork products in the house. Thanks!)
This apartment is perfect for commuting on the T for med school interviews around Longwood, celebrating graduations from the various Boston area colleges, attending conferences in the area, or sightseeing around town. It is less ideal for you if you plan to spend a lot of time hanging out at home, though you are always welcome in the main living space, too.
If you are looking for a place that looks and feels more like a hotel than someone's home, my apartment is not a good match for you.
I have a beautiful porch with an awesome adirondack chair; you are welcome to use the free laundry in the basement - with my detergent and dryer sheets; join me in the living room for silly tv shows.
Interaction with Guests
I am a very casual host and am in and out of the house during your stay, while occasionally working from home. I really appreciate coordinating morning showers and, as needed, use of the tandem drive way. (Bring a car, no problem!) FYI: I'm a busy professional and when I'm home, I hang out in the living room - and it very much looks like I live here, with stuff on the coffee table, etc.
I am happy to answer questions, chat, share a drink, or let you enjoy your own privacy in the back room. I look forward to meeting you!
No smoking or pets.
You're welcome to make yourself at home - I only ask that you be respectful of my belongings.
Thank you for respecting my kitchen requests!
Jen was such a great host! The neighborhood is beautiful. The town center (restaurants and stores) and train station are a short stroll away. bed was comfortable and the house was clean. Thanks Jen!
Jen's place was a clean,welcoming,affordable and quiet place very close to the Longwood medical area on the D line T. I had the perfect place to do some work and feel at home. Will get in touch again if I am back in tbe area again.
I highly recommend Jen's place. She promptly responded to my inquire. The listing description was (email hidden)e room is relatively spacious and sunny, the T station is 2-3 blocks away and gets you right in the heart of Boston. Jen was very welcoming and provided us with everything. WiFi was available and fast. The neighborhood is very clean and quiet. During the four days with her my mother and I had the chance to have our privacy. If it will ever be needed I will book with Jen again.
My parents spent 1 week in Jan's house in Newtown center, good location. She was accommodating and quick to respond to all my inquires. The stay for my parents was comfortable
Jenny was warm and welcoming and very easy to deal with. I was able to come and go as I pleased and the room was exactly as pictured.
The location is really fantastic! Starbucks, cute restaurants and shops are a few minutes' walk away! The T is within 2-3 blocks as well, or if you prefer Uber there is plenty of availability in the area. The neighborhood is a classic New England family area and it's very safe to walk at night. Two great finds were JP Licks Ice Cream and Rosenfeld Bagel Company, both a quick walk away.
Thanks Jen, for your hospitality and relaxing environment!
She was very pleasant when I arrived, explained where things were, and offered me bagels, fruit and something to drink.
My husband and I spent two nights at Jen's house in Newton Centre. She wasn't home when we stayed there, but she left the place very clean and we felt very much at home during our stay. It was easy to find, conveniently located, and the bed was comfy. What more could you want? :)
