Jimmy's place was great for our first trip to the Boston area. It was close to restaurants/bars and an easy drive (or Uber) into downtown Boston. It was quiet and clean (we had 6 adults in our group and had no issues with space). I would definitely recommend!

Jimmy's place is super nice. We really enjoyed our stay here. There are a lots of toys both inside the room and outside at back yard. My son really enjoys playing with them. My parents enjoy cooking with the nice cookwares. We spent a really great time here. Jimmy is a super nice host, and very responsive. Although he is on vacation, he response very quickly to our questions and needs. Overall, I highly recommend this places to other people especially families with kids.

Thank you, Jimmy, to let us stay in your family home . We enjoyed every second of our stay . The house is located in a residential area its within an easily walkable distance of all main amenities . It is very spacious and has a homely feeling in the original spirit of an Airbnb . ( now rare to find) . The best Airbnb we have stayed at so far ! By a long way !

This cute 3-1 is walking distance (for people who are capable of walking a mile or so) from Harvard and MIT Campuses, shops, restaurants, and parks. It's a comfortable home with central AC, a great cook-centric kitchen (yay, gas!), comfortable sitting and dining rooms and nice backyard. It's especially good for families with young kids, as there are toys and kid-focused beds. The bed in the master is very soft - kind of like sleeping on a marshmallow - so if you are sensitive to that you may want to choose from one of the many other beds. Our host Jimmy was available by text or email for the smallest of questions to the most important check-in information. I highly recommend Jimmy's place!

Jimmy was very communicative and accommodating. The location was perfect for our family, it was convenient to have a driveway as we'd rented a car, and we particularly enjoyed the lovely kitchen and communal spaces.

This home was perfect for our family of four. It's been beautifully renovated inside and has comfortable beds, good water pressure as well as charming, unique decorations. The host is wonderfully responsive and accommodating. Book with confidence.

My wife and I are teachers north of Boston and have 4 children. We enjoy traveling, being active, and spending time in Cape Cod and Lake Ontario.

As a family we enjoy seeing different places and experiencing different cultures. We love the concept of airbnb and the idea of communal living. As a young family we love the idea of living somewhere else and having the flexibility/comforts of a kitchen and bedrooms.

Rocco is 7 years old and he loves Ancient Egypt and karate. Theo is 4 and he enjoys cars and diggers. Colton is also 4 and he enjoys sleeping and baseball. Adeline is 2 and loves her mom.
