Bay views and ocean breezes from most windows, 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.
Rooms are fully furnished; shared kitchen fully equipped; rent includes WIFI, utilities, laundry facilities, easy onstreet parking. Bathrooms and common areas are shared. There are two full bathrooms and one half bathroom. Breakfast isn't provided but kitchen facilities are available. Off-street parking is an extra fee, but there is plenty of on-street parking available for free. This particular bedroom has a private balcony with bay view, accessed through a large window; there is another shared balcony just off of the dining room.
We have extra guitars and other acoustic instruments; also games and fun books, some in Italian, French or Spanish, to relax with after a long day (including Asterix!). We have books about Boston, maps, dictionaries in five languages, and other helpful aids for getting around Boston!
Jones Hill is a quiet, safe residential neighborhood with a rich history and many examples of classic New England architecture. There is a mix of 1860's-1890's mansions and triple deckers from the 1920s. It borders South Boston and is within walking distance of two beaches as well as some nice biking paths; the historic Kennedy Library museum is nearby. We are at the top of the hill, so you can see the ocean from the yard, and we get ocean breezes all summer. My house was built in 1880 for the daughter of the farmer that owned the hill, and though the neighborhood is part of Boston, it still has a suburban feeling, with giant trees and plenty of yards. In past decades it has become home to immigrants as well as old New England families; about half the arrivals were from Ireland, but also some from Italy, Eastern Europe, Vietnam, the Carribean and Cape Verde. In winter we help eachother with shoveling snow; people stay a long time, as it is a pleasant place to live.
Close to shops and good restaurants, only eight minutes walk to Red Line subway. Walk or bike to several beaches and bike trails (we can rent you some bikes!), or take a quick subway ride to see the historic Boston center or visit the cultural and academic areas of Boston. 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.

Vurdering av denne eiendommen
Great accommodation. House with charm. Leaves nothing to wish for. Quiet, clean and cozy. Train station in walking distance. Jessica is a wonderful host. We enjoyed making her aquaintance.
Nice rooms with a wonderful view. Jessica tells you a lot about what's going on and what you can doi in Boston. You can use the kitchen and the sitting room.
I spent two nights at Jessica's beautiful home and was very pleased! The neighborhood is quiet, it was easy to find parking very close to her home, and the accommodations were very comfortable.
Got what was promised.
Nice room. Very friendly host. Gave plenty of useful advice where to go. Provided hot chocolate and hot water bowl after marathon race in the cold. Much appreciated!
Jessica is an exotic, smily and kind person.
It was great to be able to cook and she nicely offer the the coffee in the morning.
The location is great, near to Boston City by Train.
The house is like Jessica says, a little bit "Harry Potter". Very nice and comfortable.
We had a great time there.
Jessica is friendly and helpful.
Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen und schönen Aufenthalt in Bosten. Das Zimmer war wie angekündigt und die Oragnisation klappte reibungslos. Vielen Dank!
Dies war unsere erste Erfahrung mit WIMDU. Die Unterkunft liegt in einer ruhigen Wohngegend. Der Weg bis zur Bahn, die einen binnen drei oder vier Stationen in das Zentrum von Boston bringt, ist sehr gut. Gehweg circa 10 Minuten. An der Bahnstation befindet sich Mc Kennas Kaffee. Ein hervorragendes Frühstücksrestaurant. Die Unterkunft war alles in allem in Ordnung. Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich. Die Vermieterin sehr hilfsbereit. Man teilt sich mit den Mitbewohnern ein Badezimmer mit WC. Ebenso teilt man sich die Küche und den Kühlschrank mit anderen Mitbewohnern. Wir selber haben die Küche nicht genutzt, sondern sind zum Frühstück in oben genanntes Frühstücksrestaurant gegangen und haben am Abend im unweit gelegenen Pub mit Namen HARP&BARD gegessen. Unser Zimmer empfanden wir im ersten Moment nicht so toll. Zum Beispiel war das Bett auf beiden Seiten gebrochen. Dies wurde jedoch umgehend repariert und dann war es auch o. k.! Sieht man mal von unserer Erfahrung beim Beziehen des Zimmers ab, kann man diese Unterkunft weiter empfehlen.
