We are a quick subway ride on the Red Line to the financial district, MGH, Boston Common and the Freedom Trail, MIT, UMass Boston, the Kennedy Library, South Boston, Lesley, Harvard, and more; or take a ten minute bus ride to the BU medical center and medical school. Several restaurants within walking distance with "best of Boston" write-ups, also grocery stores, ice cream shop, and breakfast cafe on the way to the subway station.
Fifteen minutes from Santander Bank headquarters and the Italian consulate. Historical sights within biking distance include the John F. Kennedy Museum and Library, the Uphams Corner cemetary, and the oldest house in Boston!
Rooms are fully furnished; shared kitchen fully equipped; rent includes WIFI, utilities, laundry facilities, easy on street parking. Bathrooms (three of them) and common areas (two living rooms, big balcony, eat-in kitchen, front and back yards and deck with grille) are shared.
Ocean views from most windows, ocean breezes, high ceilings and wood floors, crown mouldings, carved fireplaces, and custom Victorian decor distinguish this charming home. People have compared it to the Weazely's house in Harry Potter--something fascinating around every corner, with books, games, and artwork left behind by the world travellers, artists, engineers and medical people who have lived here.
The house combines the homey comfort of a vintage farm house (it was a wedding present from the farmer who owned the hill to his daughter, in 1880, and still has the farmhouse-style kitchen) with the elegance of art nouveau-style decor in the bedrooms and shared areas--paintings, elegant carved fireplaces, colored glass and bay windows, and more. It was built at a time when architects wanted to celebrate local resources such as fine-grained varieties of wood, abundant light, and flexible uses of space and whimsical exterior color.
There are inspiring views of the harbor islands and the city skyline and of huge leafy trees; large balconies to relax on with Breughel-like views of historic houses marching down to the bay; you can watch sailboats floating on the harbor in the distance or see the city lights blinking on at night, or just watch the blue jays and cardinals play nearby in the giant trees.
The alcove room has windows in three directions, so it is sunny from early morning until late afternoon, with lovely views. We have more than one room available, so we can usually accommodate a group in the main part of the house, with ample facilities for you to cook and eat together in the shared kitchen (ask about group rates). There is also a separate apartment available; it is more modern in decor, with a private kitchen, entrance, bathroom, sitting room, and deck, suitable for one or two people. Look on this site for our other listings!
Your host, Jessica, is a therapist and musician who speaks several languages (Italian, French and English) and has a good understanding of some others (including Spanish). She grew up in Italy and Africa, has travelled a lot, and is happy to share ideas on fun things to see and do in Boston. The alternate phone number provided is for my assistant Michael; he can let you in if I am away, so please keep his number as well.
Consideration for other guests is important; being quiet when near bedrooms, no electronic noise other than alarm clocks in bedrooms.

Jessica is the best host one could wish for, she is so welcoming and you can tell there is genuine concern that you have the best stay in Boston. Her knowledge of the area has no limits. There is a very helpful information pack in your room that list all the main tourist areas and sights and the subway station you need to see them.What a lovely change it was to stay in a property that has character as opposed to the usual sterile hotel chain room. It was great just sitting down and talking to Jessica about the arts and life in general. I have made a new friend for life.
Jessica has been very kind to us. He has given every luxury at home and has told us places in the area for dining and entertainment. Always very attentive to us. If I go back to Boston, it will be an option for me again.
Jessica ha sido muy amable con nosotros. Nos ha dado todo tipo de lujos en casa y nos ha explicado lugares de la zona para comer e ir de ocio. Siempre muy atenta con nosotros. Si vuelvo a Boston, será una opción para mi otra vez.
We had a great time in this lovely home. We were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived and Jessica was so helpful and accommodating with ideas of things to do and see during our stay.
Excelente atención del afitrion y y la orientación para llegar,una casa muy bonita cómoda y mucha tranquilidad todo perfecto Muchas Gracias por tus atenciones Jessica.
Stary domek na wzgórzu na peryferiach Bostonu z widokiem na ocean. Spokój i cisza, blisko do metra, a po drodze można zjeść smaczne śniadanie w licznych "knajpkach". Gospodarz - Jessica - przemiła i sympatyczna osoba. Udało mi się namówić ją na grę na gitarze i śpiew. Pomimo chrypki zgodziła się zaśpiewać kilka piosenek - mam na pamiątkę video film z Jej występu :-). Szkoda tylko, że nasz pobyt w Bostonie był tak krótki, ale czekała nas dalsza podróż po USA, w tym NYC. Mam nadzieję, że teraz Jessica wraz z Perrym odwiedzi nas w Polsce i będą u nas dłużej niż my w Bostonie.
Accueil chaleureux, explications utiles fournies à notre arrivée.
Chambre à la décoration vieillotte, l'intérieur des placards est à refaire entièrement.Situation calme, proche du métro et de quelques restaurants.
Première expérience de ce type que nous ne renouvelleront pas.
Die gemütlich eingerichteten Zimmer sind in Ordnung; das Bett könnte etwas größer sein. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit, auch in Form von praktischen und nützlichen Tipps für den Besuch Bostons. Insgesamt vermittelt die Unterkunft einen familiären Eindruck; dies gilt auch für die gemeinsame Nutzung der zwei Nasszellen für vier Parteien.
