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 pleasant study alcove with bay view and desk. There is a shared balcony just off of the dining room with the same view.
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.
Domovní řádNo smoking indoors or behind the house; smoking area in front yard provided. Kitchen surfaces must be wiped and dishes and pots cleaned before leaving kitchen.
Consideration for other guests is important; being quiet when near bedrooms, no electronic noise other than alarm clocks in bedrooms.

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
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.
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.
I really enjoyed my stay in Boston. Nice house and clean rooms. The city center can be reached via public transport within 20 minutes.
The room and the house in general were very nice to stay in. Even though Jessica was not here to great us, she did every thing to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The house is very close to a subway station and close to the center of Boston. This is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the city. I highly recommand it !
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.
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.
