This was a lovely apartment very near the many shops and restaurants of JP. Phyllis was a great host. She made sure I had everything I needed, and the complementary coffee was very welcome. I also enjoyed chatting with her a little. I'd certainly stay there again. Thank you.

Phyllis made me feel very welcome. The accommodation was exactly as described, even down to the two cats, which were delightful. I felt at home, and was genuinely sad when it was time to leave. The neighborhood was very pleasant, and Phyllis gave good advice on where to go to eat. Put it this way - I want to stay there again!

Wonderful neighbourhood - culturally mixed with some lovely cafés and restaurants. Very centrally placed for both Cambridge and Boston, but cheaper than both. Phyllis's home is a pleasant 10min walk to the train which takes you to Brookline/Boston etc. The apartment is lovely, full of character, clean & well maintained. Phyllis found it difficult to meet me - she had a sick cat and travel plans to sort - but once we managed to hook up for a quick chat I felt reassured & at ease. She gave me free access to her washing machine/drier - I arrived after 9 days on my bike/camping - very appreciated! Would certainly recommend for a very laid back & relaxed 'home from home'. If I'm ever in the area I'd definitely look to stay with Phyllis again. Oh, and the cats are lovely.

Friendly host. Clean and accessible property. I would have stayed longer but for already booking other accommodation for the rest of my trip. Excellent.

Phyllis has a beautiful home in a great location. The house is just a short walk from public transit (bus and train) and near many shops, restaurants and bars. I stayed in Jamaica Plain for a friend's wedding but I was just a short train ride away from downtown Boston and other great neighborhoods. Phyllis is a great communicator, she always made sure to send messages and made sure I had everything I needed and her cats are adorable.

Phyllis and her cozy home are lovely. The place is charming and clean. Everything worked properly. We didn't see an air conditioner unit, but didn't need one because the weather was cool. The guest bed is comfortable. The neighborhood has some nice boutiques and cafés, and is a short walk to the T subway station. My friend and I felt comfortable and welcome during our short stay, although the host wasn't there most of the time.

Originally from Massachusetts, but lived away for a long time - Philadelphia, DC, Costa Rica, and then El Salvador. I've now been back in Boston for about 15 years and loving it. I travel a lot for my job, which I love. When I'm here, I love weekends in the White Mountains, Cape Cod, hiking, biking, almost any outdoor activity. I live in a great apartment in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Boston... lots of great community, green space, bars, and restaurants.
