Stay in the spare room in my JP apartment! Just a couple of minutes to the subway in funky Jamaica Plain. You get a private room, access to the whole place and even laundry if you want. Close to a big park, shopping and eateries.
Stay in a private bedroom in my spacious apartment in one of Boston's trendiest neighborhoods.
The T, Boston's subway system, is just a 5 minute walk away, giving you access to all of Boston. The orange line of the T brings you to the heart of the city within 20 minutes. From there, you can access other lines or buses that can get you wherever you need to go.
The room features a full sized bed, closet, desk, small dresser, and plenty of light in the mornings. Help yourself to a well equipped kitchen, dining room, living room (with plenty of books,) a tv room and a small yard if the weather is nice. I offer wifi, knowledge of the area and advice on getting around. Free laundry in the basement. On street free parking.
I hope you will feel at home. The kitchen has basics and my fridge usually has plenty of room for your things. Let me know if you'd like some yogurt, oatmeal or anything in particular for breakfast. There is also an excellent bakery on your way to the T if you want to grab something on the go.
Jamaica Plain, or JP, is a trendy neighborhood south of downtown Boston full of art, great restaurants and a wonderful community. Near the house, you have Canto 6 bakery, Doyle's Bar, the Sam Adams brewery, Milky Way pizza and pasta--all within easy walking distance. The main drag of JP, Centre Street, is less than a mile away. There you will find countless other restaurants, bars, cafes and shops.
Franklin Park, the largest park in the city, is a few steps away. You can walk through the wilderness to get some peace and quiet, visit the zoo or play a round of golf if you like!

Interaction with Guests
Just the right amount.
JP is a great 'hood full of all sorts of people, great restaurants, a funky scene and large parks.
The T is close by. Also buses. The house is at the top of a hill so if you have a skateboard or roller skates, it's a quick trip out.
No smoking please.
Sorry but no pets.
No drinking to excess. No drugs.
No children or guests under 21.
Matt was very friendly and welcoming from the get go. He made us feel very comfortable. The place was very clean and matched the description. Location was perfect and very convenient to public transport. We loved staying and would stay again.
Matt was a considerate and efficient host. The house was lovely and very clean and the location was perfect for walking to bars, restaurants and a wonderful bakery right down the hill. We did not see Matt after we "checked-in" initially, but this fitted with my own preference quite nicely. He made it clear he would be available by phone if he wasn't physically around. He provided towels and some toiletries but we brought our own. The bed was comfy and we were nice and warm. Thanks so much Matt for being a great host!
Matt was responsive and available. I only saw him at check-in on the first night I was there, but that suited my needs just fine. The neighborhood is a funky place where a lot of twenty-something's go to live and buy property. Good access to the T, bars and restaurants from Matt's place. I also had a place to park my rental car, which was a must for me.
The house is old and a bit musty. It was clean. Matt has a lot of nerdy artifacts around the place and likes craft beer.
Fantastic first Airbnb experience! Matt is such a friendly and helpful guy, good tips on how to get around and what to see. Happy to chat or leave you to your own devices. Very clean and spacious apartment, and really comfy bed. Location ideal for seeing Boston, 20min tube ride to centre. Parking so easy and safe on the street. Overall, great place to stay.
We had an amazing stay at Matt's place. Matt was very welcoming and gave us great tips and addresses to discover the neighborhood. The flat looked exactly like in the picture, with a very nice room and common areas (the kitchen and living room are huge!).
The location is really convenient as it's only 20min away from downtown Boston.
I would definitely recommend staying there! Thanks again Matt!
Everything was just as expected! Matt was a friendly, funny host who gave us great recommendations for local things to do (including some breweries off of the beaten path, which ended up being some of the highlights of our trip). He even invited us to hang out one evening we got back early, but we had to sleep to get up for our early flight. Matt was prompt to respond to any messages, and he provided clean sheets, towels and blankets, as well as fridge space for any leftovers we had--he even offered the use of toiletries if we had forgotten any, but we had brought our own.
The house is a bit chilly, but with the bedroom door closed + blankets, it's very cozy. Bedroom is also the closest room to the bathroom in the apartment, so it's literally right there for you to use! Though the bed's a full, my tall husband and I were able to fit for a really nice, cozy fit; it's very comfortable and we slept well.
The neighborhood is quiet, but be aware that this means that most things are closed (cafes, convenience stores) at 10 p.m. or later (we had come in a bit late at night and didn't have anywhere to stop for a bite--Matt did very kindly offer us food, but we managed with our airport leftovers). The Sam Adams Brewery is an easy walk, though, from Matt's. House is old, so it's very creaky as a result; be aware that you'll hear Matt and the apartment above you move around (and Matt can hear you, too!); not loud or bothersome, but just something to note for anyone not used to an older place. We hope we didn't wake Matt as we tried to leave/manage the door at 4 in the morning! Overall, location is less than a 1/2 mile from the T's Orange Line and Uber and Lyft pick up in the area, as well, so you can't beat the location.
We didn't hear about the famous bacon, but that's okay ;)
We had a great brief stay. Matt has a lovely, clean home which is in a really vibrant neighbourhood and an easy train ride to the city centre.
I have lived in Boston for more than 10 years and have come to appreciate the city, it's neighborhoods and all of what New England has to offer. Before then, I lived on Long Island, NY, where I grew up.
I spend a lot of time rock climbing, cooking and absorbing culture. I enjoy a good beer, a fine wine and a well prepared meal but also don't mind slumming it at a dive bar and eating hot dogs on summer night. This is starting to feel like a dating profile so I'm going to stop...
