About this listing
My spacious and sunny three bedroom apartment is the perfect home base for any visit to Boston - - close to public transportation, downtown, restaurants, shops, and green spaces. Come visit!
Beautiful, sunny first floor apartment with three bedrooms and original wood work in Boston’s Pondside neighborhood of Jamaica Plain. The house is perfectly located on a tree-lined street a few blocks from Jamaica Pond, the 39 MBTA bus, excellent restaurants, a public library, a bakery, and much more. The Orange Line train is only a ten minute walk away and there is also on-street parking. Jamaica Plain is known for its open green spaces (Jamaica Pond, The Arboretum, Franklin Park, the Southeast Corridor, and the Muddy River) and also for its restaurants and independently owned shops. Downtown Boston is a short bus, train, or car ride away and Fenway Park is just 2.5 miles away.
The apartment has wifi, a large smart tv, laundry, new appliances, a new microwave, and a recently renovated eat-in kitchen that is fully equipped with everything from excellent knives to a butter dish! There is a large pantry and the dining room table opens to seat 10-12.
For those who like to unpack, there are empty dressers and closets in all of the bedrooms! There's a blow dryer and and iron/ironing board.
Each of the three bedrooms has all new queen size beds. The living room has a new queen sleeper couch. The apartment is family friendly with a backyard with plenty of patio furniture and a play set with swings.
It's a great apartment in a great location!
There is a minimum stay of 3 nights (although will take requests for 2 nights if that's all that's available when you wanted to rent). There is an additional charge of $25/person per night for more than 6 people. Please tell me a little about your group when you make your request! Please no smoking and no pets!
Interaction with guests
My interaction with guests varies. Guests can access the apartment through a lock box. I balance being available for questions and advice but also giving full privacy.
Thanks for not smoking and leaving your pets at home! Thanks for keeping the house locked. Thanks for not throwing parties. And... all of the usual stuff that is just good common sense like using coasters and place mats and returning the apartment to the way it looked when you arrived.
There is no parking in the driveway.
At the end of your stay, please strip the beds and put the sheets in the pantry or on the bathroom floor. Towels can be put with the sheets. Trash and recycling pick up is on Tuesdays. If you are staying through a Tuesday, please put your garbage and recycling outside in the appropriate barrels Monday night or by 7:00 am on Tuesdays. THANKS!

I'm from NY, but have lived in Boston for more than twenty years - - nearly all of them in this very home. I'm happy reading, listening to music, going to museums, hiking, camping, exploring new places and hanging out with friends.
