Roomy And confortable
This place was really nice. I love the way it’s hidden behind the trees. Great outdoor space. It was very spacious.
Updated appliances and upgrades. Many local businesses and shops within walking distance. Management responds very quickly. Stairs going to lower level are slightly steep and narrow. And that downstairs area tends to get a little colder so a space heater is needed. The one that was there did not work very well. Not sure how it sleeps 14 people as I have keys to lower
Thank you for the kind review and thank you very much for staying with us. the house sleeps 14 and beds and then there is a queen blow-up mattress and also a fold-out cot. The 14 noted on the site is the max occupancy of the house. Again thank you we appreciate you staying and glad you enjoyed!!!
Great place for 12 people to stay!
We spent almost a week at this property. There were 12 of us - 2 in their 70's, a family of 4 with 2 teens, another family of 4 with 2 young children and a 30-something couple. The residence is conveniently located within short walking distance to Jamaica Pond. The accomodations were described accurately. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one on the main level with one common bathroom, and a basement for the final bedroom (an open common area with a bathroom.) There is a charcoal grill outside which we used. the kitchen, dining room and living room are all on the main level.
The only problems we encountered were finding parking in the evenings and the struggle for there really being only one usable bathroom for the top 2 bedrooms and the main level bedroom. Our guests found it "intrusive" to the guests using the basement bedroom to use the downstairs bathroom. To get to this bathroom they had to trek through the open space where the bssement beds were.
We would HIGHLY recommend this location. Jeremy was FANTASTIC to work with and very responsive to all my questions. If we find ourselves in the Boston area again, we will most definitely check into staying here again!.
I love to hear about when people thoroughly enjoy the space and would like to return on their next trip to Boston!!!! Thanks for staying with us and also thank you for taking the time to write this kind review. You are ALWAYS welcome back and we are also always happy to give return visitors a discount. Thank you again!
Poor Support System
MANY things contributed to the poor rating. First, we showed up and old trash was spread throughout the containment area, aged many days with flies and open bags with putrid smells seeping into the kitchen from the back yard. You could tell it had been left there over an extended period of time. Second, one of the beds broke and it took 1 1/2 days for the repair to occur. They sent someone, they arrived late in the day, but they did not have the proper tools nor materials and had to wait until the next evening to get back to the house to repair. Third, the gas was shut off so 10 of us could not shower nor cook for over 1 1/2 days. (We had an infant that we bathed in a sink with warm water heated in a microwave). Then they expected us to stay home to wait for the gas company to come repair; even though, we were trying to enjoy our vacation. When we told them we would not stay, that it was their responsibility to receive the gas person at the house, they stated "Well what do you want me to do about it? We have tried 7 people and no one can go to the house to let them in." Fourth, the back yard (which appears large in the photographs), is extremely small and the boards to the porch have caved in several areas...completely unsafe to allow your children to run and play. The basement "bedroom" is a basement, cold, dank, and sleeps (4) - not pictured in the photo section of listing. This listing does not have the appropriate support people in place to handle any situation in which you may need assistance. Beautiful area, awesome restaurants, much longer distance to the train station than advertised. Look elsewhere for your stay. Jamaica Plain is a incredible area, and this listing does it an injustice.
This review is difficult to read as we try and make the house the best it can be for everyone staying. As you can see from the other reviews people are VERY happy with the home and we have returning guests all the time. The deck they mentioned in the backyard as small is roughly 350 sq feet which is a very large deck. The trash they mentioned outside was from the last guest. Unfortunately Boston only has one trash pick up a week and the trash had been there for 2 days waiting for the next weekly pick up. It is always brought out and never sits for more than a couple days. The basement bedroom they wrote about is hooked into the central AC system and really comfortable and very nice so it is not dank at all. This group was really difficult to please. I tried very hard as it is REALLY important to me that everyone has the best vacation they can and after them yelling, swearing and just plain being really mean I was unable to make them happy but I did continue to try.
Well located but missing some essentials.
Old house, renovated, lots of stairs, average quality linens,clean, but no toilet paper, paper towels, or kitchen trash bags!
When we asked Jeremy about these items, he said he never supplied such things and that he had made that clear in the contract. I have gone over all contracts and correspondence and haven’t been able to find anything saying no toilet paper would be provided.
I have been visiting hotels, motels, hostels, rental homes and portable toilets for a lifetime and have never not been supplied with toilet tissue. I had to walk a few blocks in the rain to find some and I feel disappointed. But don’t worry if you are staying there soon, we left several extra rolls of toilet paper and paper towels.
I sincerely apologize that you did not notice the language in the house checking instructions that said to bring toilet paper and all toiletries. You had to have received it because in order to receive the lockbox code that information is below on the same page. Typically there is plenty of leftovers when guests arrive and I apologize if there was not.
Overall the house had some amazing features. Only one bath for the first and second floors. The second bath was in the basement which had some challenging stairs which was a challenge for our group. Kitchen and back yard were certainly high points.
Jamaica Plain ist ein Viertel in Boston, der neben der Innenstadt und weniger als 10 Minuten mit dem T in die Innenstadt ist. Auch ein Radweg in Boston Downtown. JP ist eine sehr künstlerische lebhaften Viertel mit über 15 gute Restaurants innerhalb von 5 Minuten zu Fuß von zu Hause aus, Cafés und Geschäften wenige Schritte vom Haus entfernt. Ein paar Blocks entfernt ist auch Jamaica Pond mit Wander- und Radwegen umgeben.
