This was a lovely place. Victoria was very helpful and accommodating. We had a great time here and would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Boston. It is easily accessible from the city centre and airport and very convenient to local restaurants, shops and bars.

Very good place to book. It’s not too far from anything. It’s such a cute little area and a 5 minute walk to little shops on the street and 10-15 minute drive into downtown Boston. Super clean and chic.

Beautiful home. We stayed in the Lion Room. Loved our stay. Robyn is helpful with local suggestions and anything you may need. We walked to dinner each night and the walk to the train is easy. Take the train if going downtown, Boston traffic and road system is horrendous.

This home is absolutely stunning! We received a great welcome message from the host which was clear and detailed. It was the perfect location for the purpose of our trip in JP. There were many cute places to walk to but driving was doable as well. The room was the perfect size for 2 adults and 1 kid. Our kiddo loved her little room and comfy bed as well. We appreciated the coffee in the morning as well as some small breakfast items (e.g. english muffins, dry cereal, oatmeal) and the ability to store leftovers in the fridge. The bathroom was beautiful and we enjoyed the eclectic decorations. We didn't see anyone while we were there but that was OK. Wish the temperature was under our control as it was unusually hot for October and uncomfortable with no fan/air conditioning. However, overall it was a nice place to stay and way more affordable than a suite at a hotel.

Thank you very much for your kind and thorough feedback! We do have A/C upstairs which keeps it quite comfortable however I believe we dropped the ball with those unexpected hot days. I do wish you would have messaged me, I'm sorry for any discomfort. If you come back again, reference this message and I'll give you a special offer. The flowers were beautiful!

Nice location close to downtown Boston while still in unique area. Easy walking distance to dinner. Morning organic coffee close by at "Feed Store". Pond area close for longer walks. Thankful for the chance to stay here. Lovely.

The house is located close to the arboretum and 10 min walk to subway stations (20 min walk to Samuel Adams brewery). The room was spacious, quiet and nicely decorated. The kitchen had a commercial-size fridge and stovetop as well as a Keurig. There were oatmeals, English muffins and bananas available for breakfast. We'd highly recommend the house to everyone.
