I moved from the center of Boston to fascinating JP six months ago for several reasons but the main one was to have more space! I wanted a place for my recently widowed mother to be able to comfortably stay whenever she wanted. I am offering a large bedroom with a brand new queen sized bed that is completely private. This apartment can sleep up to 5 people. I also have a small bedroom with a twin size bed as well as a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room making this a great retreat for families. Just include the total number of people in your reservation and I will reserve the appropriate number of rooms. The rest of the apartment is spacious and sunny with high lofted ceilings and skylights.
My apartment is in an ideal location in JP - located just two blocks from Centre Street which is the main hubub of the artsy, hip JP neighborhood. There are delicious restaurants and shops just two blocks in one direction and a charming little park and the subway (or T as Bostonians call it) that takes you straight into downtown in 15 minutes two blocks in the other direction. Among other places, the T can take you directly to Symphony Hall/Fenway Park area, Back Bay and amazing shopping, Boston Commons, Tufts Medical and then Downtown and the Waterfront. It's the BEST line on the T and it's literally a 3 minute walk from my front door.
For breakfast, I always have hot or cold cereal and organic fruits of the season in addition to tea, french press coffee or Nespresso. There is a co-op a few blocks away as well as a Whole Foods and several coffee shops - and of course my kitchen is open to cooking. Towels and soap are provided - I have a fantastic two-headed shower. If you need a parking space, there is one available off the street. Wifi is free of charge and my TV is equipped with instant streaming Netflix and Hulu Plus. This bedroom is a steal - especially since I'm just getting started on airbnb!
My family had a great time staying here! Wonderfully helpful to have parking available, and Liesl was communicative and helpful before and during our stay. Great location, and a cute, clean apartment. Thanks!
My friend and I had a wonderful stay between Christmas and New Year. The apartment is conveniently placed, close to transport and equipped with all the things you need.
Liesl was a great host, communicated and responded quickly and was pleasant to deal with.
Would recommend this apartment for your visit to Boston.
Great location, close to main street in JP. Very nice, clean, and warm apartment! Liesl was great to work with, responsive and helpful.
Liesl's apartment is in a great location if your looking to be out of the centre of Boston but close to public transport. You can use the Green Street Station for the subway of go to the end of the street away from the station and catch the bus to everywhere you want to go.
My wife and I probably got off the Green Street Station in the worst circumstances after travelling for 27 (email hidden) at night with snow falling. Thankfully a Boston cop (go and visit her parents Cuban restaurant el-oriental) was passing with her police dog and pointed us in the right direction and even offered to drive our bags down. When you come out of the station go left down the street directly in front of the station and it's about two blocks on the right.
The only limitation on the apartment is the stairs up from the door are a little tight but this is only an issue when moving luggage in and out but ok other times.
Jamaica Plain is a great area with local food outlets nearby. You can either go out to eat or cook in the kitchen in the apartment.
Very convenient and great off street parking. apartment is clean and well-supplied. Only caveat is that the steps to the apartment are very steep and narrow so you need to be able to carry up any luggage you have.
Liesl's place in JP was great! Easy access to the T and plenty of things to do nearby. Her place was clean and had everything we needed for a long weekend visit. Her directions were easy to follow and everything was labeled to help us out. Liesl was definitely helpful and quick to respond to all of our inquiries. Her place was comfortable and really a home away from home. We would stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone else.
Liesl's apartment is really amazing. Extremely cozy and clean, it has all the facilities you could need and locates only 15' by subway to the center (the Green St station is just a few minutes by walk)
Liesl was really great in following up and answering all of my doubts. I will recommend everyone to book it.
One of the best Airbnb we stayed at. Felt right at home and loved the neighborhood!
Liesl is great, and her apartment is very lovely. It was a great place to come to at the end of our journey. Great restaurants very close by, as is the T.
Lisa's place was perfect for us. We had my relative from VT stay there for a week with his partner while he helped us out on some house projects. It was clean and airy and very well located to downtown JP and the T. Everything in the apartment was well labeled and the place was very comfortable and easy to be at home in. Liesl couldn't have been nicer to deal with around the logistics. He was very happy with his stay. We would definitely recommend this to others.
