Description

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!

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.

I love JP for its mix of restaurants and shops, the Pond and the Arboretum, and for the many cultural and educational opportunities that it has to offer.

The apartment is just a minute from the bus and a short walk to the train. It is VERY convenient to downtown, the museums, and the medical area.

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.

Great huge house in great neighborhood. Tried the Irish pub , Mexican restaurant and Whole Foods in the neighborhood and wished there was time to explore more. Very easy to use the bus at the end of the street and subway about 10 minute walk away to get the Centre of Boston. House was spotless with everything you could possibly need including a cupboard full of toiletries in the bathroom, including things like cough medicine , that you wouldn't expect. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very spacious with room to put your things away. Games in the living room were a nice touch as well. It was my first Airbnb in the US and first time I never met the host but maybe that's the way it's done in the US. Keys were kept in a lock box so I guess no need to meet up. Great binder filled with all the info you'd need about the neighborhood. Overall a great stay !!

Very nice neighborhood, very likely and easy access to the center by public transport (of foot is you are a walker!). The place is very nice but lacks a bit of "warmth". It seems to be used only for rental and therefore does not have the charm of "inhabited places". But clean and well equipped.

Marian's place in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood in Boston was the perfect homebase for my family of 4. The interior of the house is actually more spacious than the pictures depict, and was in good condition. We had a car but only used it to get to Cape Cod -- the house is within walking distance of both trains and bus transportation. Whole Foods literally two blocks away, tasty restaurant/bar on the corner, beautiful Jamaica Pond nearby for lovely walks and runs. Neighborhood is super cute and we didn't have any issues -- I walked back from Fenway Park at midnight and didn't feel the least bit unsafe. Highly recommended and hope to stay again!

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.
