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.

Excellent. La maison de Jessica a beaucoup de charme. Le quartier est très calme et à 10 minutes à pied de la station de métro.
Jessica est formidable, chaleureuse et très disponible pour discuter .
Nous recommandons vivement à tous les voyageurs de séjourner dans cette maison.
very nice room with everything we needed. From the bed you can look over houses to the sea. We roused by the sunshine in the morning.:)
Jessiaca was a very nice host. She help us with every question and had good tips for the city.
Hotesse charmante et prévenante......fait l effort de parler francais...
Nice location, a ten minutes walk away from the train station(from where one gets to town quite quickly). Jessica seems to be really nice, she answers quick and provides tips on activities which can be done in Boston. As well everything worked out as discussed with her prior to our stay. Unfortunately we did not meet her in person.
However, unfortunately some of the interior in the house is a little bit old fashioned and some rooms are really full with lots of different stuff. But if you look for a rather cheap room to stay in Boston this is a good place to be.
Снимал комнату 3 дня. Хороший спокойный район. Метро 7 минут пешком, красная ветка. До пляжа пара километров, но с виду, эта часть залива не для купания (был в ноябре). Сам дом не новый, но в целом чистый. Моя комната была с видом на океан - представлен в виде узкой полоски залива после рядов особняков. Комната чистая, в бабушкином стиле. Есть одна общая ванная комната, кухня, террасы. В доме два туалета. внизу стиральная машина. Хозяйка добрая и заботливая. Обстановка спокойная, расслабленная. Хорошая альтернатива, чтобы сэкономить денег на отеле.
Good choice. Convenient, reasonably priced and comfortable. Many thanks Jessica!.
accueil de Jessica très chaleureux dès notre arrivée beaucoup d'explications à l'oral que nous pouvions relire sur des fiches préparées par Jessica
appartement très bien décoré avec beaucoup de goût
pour la cuisine il faudrait acheter une poile à frire et un toaster et ce sera parfait
dans la salle de bain le réglage de la température de la douche est à améliorer
We stayed two nights in this characteristic old Townhouse in a lovely and tidy room.
Jessica was a charming host, it even was a pleasure to listen to her singing and playing guitar.
Adequate Möglichkeit um kostengünstig und komfortabel in Boston zu übernachten. Jessica ist eine sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. P.S.: gute Anbindung an die Stadt
This is more a tree top room than an ocean view, but the bed was comfortable and Jessica is a wonderful hostess and we enjoyed getting to know her a little. This very affordable room allowed us to stay longer in Boston than we would have otherwise and the 1890's gives you a flavor of what Boston was like at that time. We found it very interesting and enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again.
