Charming Lovely Accommodation
|Address||Peverell st, 02125 Boston, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
The room is at the top of the house, with a panoramic view of the hillside, majestic trees, and Boston Harbor. It is fully furnished; the shared kitchen is fully equipped; rent includes WI-FI, 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 travelers, 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.
We have more than one room available, so we can usually accomodate a group in the main part of the house, with ample facilities for you to cook and eat together in the shared kitchen. 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.

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 traveled a lot, and is happy to share ideas on fun things to see and do in Boston. The alternate phone number listed, viewable if you decide to book the room, is for my assistant Michael; he will let you in if I am away

Reviews of this property
Nice and charming place to stay. Clean and confortable. Fresh flowers everywhere...The owner is very friendly and she gives you all the informations you might need.
Nadat we hartelijk ontvangen zijn door twee mede-huurders (was iets misgegaan in de afstemming tussen Wimdu en de gastvrouw), deed onze gastvrouw Jessica het nog eens dunnetjes over met allerlei praktische tips over de buurt en de highlights van Boston. Een prima kamer met gedeelde douche en gemeenschappelijke keuken- en woonkamerfaciliteiten. alles schoon en goed bed. 10 min. lopen naar de dichtsbijzijnde metro. Goede prijs-kwaliteitsverhouding
We had a great stay here and would definitely recommend it...we'd stay here again!
Jessica was lovely. Communication was really easy. We had no issues at all, but I imagine they'd be sorted promptly if you did have any.
The house was fantastic. We had everything we needed! The bed was so comfortable, even my girlfriend who is a light sleeper slept really well.
The room we stayed in was spacious and had great views. It felt really private and cosy even though we were sharing the house with other people.
The bathroom was clean and the shower was good too.
It was great to have use of the kitchen and somewhere to store food. The kitchen had everything you could need in it...there's also a great space outside near the kitchen where we had coffee one morning!
Wifi signal was great throughout the house.
It was so easy to get into downtown Boston from the house! The Red Line is a ten minute walk away and it's very regular.
Just down the road is a nice sports bar/restaurant called Harp and Bard which is good and reasonably priced. There are a few little stores to buy essentials from and we found a larger store called Brothers not too far away.
Overall a great location in a safe neighbourhood.
Mein Mann und ich waren für zwei Nächte bei Jessica in Boston. Wir wurden sehr nett von Jessica in ihrem wunderschönen grünen Haus empfangen. Sie gab uns wertvolle Tipps für Unternehmungen und gute Restaurants in der Nähe. Das Haus ist sehr sauber, gemütlich eingerichtet und beinhaltet alles, was man benötigt. Die Bahn ist fußläufig erreichbar und man gelangt schnell in die Stadt.
The house of Jessica in Boston is so beautiful! We stayed in the Eagle's nest and we enjoyed our time in Boston. You can get very fast by subway (red line) to the city center. We can hihly recommend Jessica's house. She is so helpful and nice and alway has a friendly ear :-) Thank you Jessica...
very nice house and room
all the guys in that house are very friendly
all the information we need are comming per mail
and if stay again in boston we would try to book at jessica
thanks a lot to jessica
No vimos a la anfitriona en ningun momento,pero nos dios magnificas indicaciones para llegar a la casa. Todo estaba limpio y bien organizado los unicos peros el camino hasta la casa desde el metro es algo duro para quien tenga las piernas mal como yo la cuesta que hay que subir ajajja una vez en el metro llegas rapidisimo a todo y lo segundo las almohadas.
Gracias por todo repentiriamos sin dudarlo.
We had a great time at Jessica's place. It's a lovely old house located a 10 minutes walk from the Red Line, with another 10 minutes ride to get to Downtown Crossing. Jessica sent us detailed information in advance how to get to her place and gave us a warm welcome.
There is a quite good Indian restaurant nearby and a RiteAid, but I didn't notice other places for grocery shopping in the area.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this place and would love to come back if we are in Boston again.
Nachdem die Buchung völlig reibungslos funktioniert hat, ging es genauso mit der Anreise weiter.
Jessica hatte uns im Vorfeld die genaue Wegbeschreibung vom Airport Boston Logan geschickt, so dass das Haus nicht zu verfehlen war.
Im Zimmer lagen bereits alle Handtücher und ein Ordner mit allen Informationen zu den Möglichkeiten (Essen/Trinken, Ausflüge, Anbindungen, Hausregeln,...) vorhanden.
Speziell hervorzuheben ist noch die Hilfsbereitschaft Jessica's und das wunderschöne, alte Haus, was wirklich sehr gemütlich ist.
