About This Listing
My wife and i are empy nesters who enjoy meeting new people and sharing tips about Boston. Our second floor guest room (can be furnished with either twin beds or king size bed) & a shared bath is perfect for one or two people who are visiting Boston as tourists, medical professionals or international students. Our home offers wifi,laundry and kitchen priviledges. During the warm weather enjoy the backyard. While we live in Boston our home is located in a quiet residential part of Jamaica Plian and it is a 20 minute walk to Jamaica Plain Center and the T. Therefore,our house is best suited for visitors who have a car, parking is available.
Quiet surburban neighborhood feel with many green spaces near by.
It is a 20 minute to Jamaica Plain Center where there is both a subway and bus to downtown Boston
Not many rules except there is no smoking
Monroe and Mary were AMAZING! Monroe was very prompt answering my emails and gave us amazing directions to their place. We arrived late on Thursday and they stayed up to make sure that we got in safely.
We arrived late because I gave wrong directions to my Lyft driver. Make sure you put Drive not Street. I made that mistake many times this weekend.
They had coffee and juice for us in the morning and they gave us rides to the train station since it was a thirty minute walk!
My only regret is that we didn't get a chance to hang out with them more. If I come back to Boston, and I will, I plan on staying with them again!
Monroe and his wife are very helpful and accommodating to our needs. The room was in excellent condition. Overall, a very pleasant stay.
Monroe and his wife are wonderful hosts. I felt like I was in my family. I really enjoyed my stay. The room was charming and comfortable. I highly recommend Monroe. He is the one of the best host I ever had. The neighbourhood is quite safe, not too far from Boston. It is also very easy to park the car in the street. The room was charming and comfortable. I will definitely come back to Monroe's house if I need housing in Boston. Jamaica Plain is a very nice place to stay.
Staying with Monroe and Mary was a very great experience. They are very friendly, communication was easy and their house was very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Me and my friend Paulina felt like home while hosted by Monroe and his lovely wife Mary! They picked us up at the metro station and welcomed us in their sweet home! The neighbourhood is quiet and residential, 10$taxi drive away from the metro. Monroe and Mary are the best host ever and we will surely come back to them if we're gonna go back to Boston :)
Monroe was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Our stay was very pleasant. He dealt with our last minute plan and late arrival with kindness and understanding. The room was charming and full of books, which I enjoyed. Highly recommended.
My gracious hosts were waiting at the door to greet me even though I did not arrive until after 8PM. They invited me to watch TV with them. I regretfully declined their offer due to my fatigue.
The room was quiet and comfortable and I slept very well. In the morning, they offered me a nice warm breakfast along with great conversation.
I enjoyed my stay and would be happy to stay with Monroe & Mary again.
