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!

The space

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.

Great place that is very roomy and clean. Comfortable beds. Has a great kitchen and all the equipment to make meals. The neighborhood is very charming. We had a car so did but use transit. Highly recommend it.

This apartment worked out perfectly for us. Used all three bedrooms as a base for a graduation weekend. Took Uber to get to campus and various sites without a problem. Grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants within easy walking distance. On a relatively busy street but traffic noise was not a problem. Technophiles be prepared this is an old house with a very limited # of outlets.

This place has an incredible value! Although my colleagues and me spent most of the time at the Boston convention center for a meeting, it felt home immediately when we arrived at Marian's beautiful Victorian house! The neighborhood is awesome and safe. The house has everything you could wish for: a fully equipped kitchen, clean, lots of space and three superb double beds. We only got to know Marian briefly but she was so kind to us even if I accidentally locked her in the basement! Thanks again for having us. Best, Luis

Marian's place is a lovely lower level flat with 3-bedroom, one bath located on a tree lined street with easy access to parking and is a hop, skip, and a jump to restaurants, shopping and public transportation. It has a nice-sized, well-equipped kitchen, and a warm relaxed lay-out.

Our party of five had a wonderful weekend / mini-family-reunion at Marian's apartment. Very nice apartment -- very clean and comfortable -- kitchen well-stocked and spacious -- nice dining room for sociable meals together -- nice living room for hanging out -- bedrooms comfortable. Convenient and pretty location in JP -- tree-lined street -- near stores and T -- short and pleasant walk to the Pond. Marian's place had everything we wanted, and we had a great stay.

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.
