I couldn't recommend staying with Jamie and Nancy more. They are a lovely couple - they were so warm and welcoming and did everything they could to make me feel comfortable in their home. I really enjoyed talking with and going out to see music with them. Their house is spacious and homely and they made it really easy for me to have my bicycle with me. I wish I could have stayed longer and would recommend staying with them to anyone coming to Boston. Thank you both!

I definitely recommend this place a lot except these people: (i)Night owls-Nancy and Jamie go to bed around or before 11 (ii)Internet addicted-Their wifi is not so fast (iii)Be sensitive to heat-There is no AC at your room, living room, nor kitchen.

Not only cozy but also clean and well decorated room~also best host I've ever met. Nancy and Jamie are so nice that they even offered me the guidance of Boston and told me some other great places to visit. I spent a great time being host in their house and had a good rest that I could travel in Boston relaxedly(⁎⁍̴̛⁍̴̛⁎)strongly recommend(´`)

I stayed for a week with Jamie (Nancy was abroad) in their lovely place on JP. The room is comfortable and spacious and has the softest bed I ever slept on. Despite the cold weather outside, the room was always warm and cozy - the electric kettle and teas a great bonus. Jamie was very friendly, showed me where to shop for food and recommended places around Boston, and also helped me with getting a taxi and even with carrying my luggage downstairs. Thanks Jamie! Would definitely recommend staying here if you don't mind a bit of a commute to city center (I would estimate 25-40 minutes including walking to the T/bus stop).

Nancy was really nice and helpful, and she tried to help whenever she can. The room was exactly the same as described. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and transportation was quiet easy. I really enjoyed my stay.

Excelent hosts! Very nice people, I really felt at home. House is very neat and clean. The neighborhood is safe and has several convenience stores (including a Whole Foods Market) within walking distance. Also, Jamaica Pond is very close and is very nice to go for a run/walk. I was there for a month and I had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this place to stay in Boston.
