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. 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 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
No smoking inside or behind the house; smoking area in front yard only. No pets.
No electronic noise in bedrooms, other than alarm clocks. Food must be kept in refrigerators or closed hard plastic containers (we will provide them).
Be considerate of other guests--quiet when near bedrooms, for example.

Jessica is a lovely host. The house is charming, and handy location.
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 !
Jessica is the best host one could wish for, she is so welcoming and you can tell there is genuine concern that you have the best stay in Boston. Her knowledge of the area has no limits. There is a very helpful information pack in your room that list all the main tourist areas and sights and the subway station you need to see them.What a lovely change it was to stay in a property that has character as opposed to the usual sterile hotel chain room. It was great just sitting down and talking to Jessica about the arts and life in general. I have made a new friend for life.
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.
Good choice. Convenient, reasonably priced and comfortable. Many thanks Jessica!.
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.
We enjoyed a very nice stay. Good room, nice house, access to house has been proactively provided, since Jessica could not be there during arrival.
The house was clean, we could use the kitchen and everything in it.
On our table in our room we found many practical advises for exploring the city, using subway and getting access to it or hints for the next mini market.
We would come again gladly.
a very beautiful house, in a quiet neighborhood of boston, next to the metro station to downtown!
All what you need!
Jessica is a very nice host! Although we only met once in her kitchen during our stay (we stayed for 2 nights) it was a very nice conversation. Her house is really special with each room furnished and decorated in a very particular and individual way. And in the morning you can have coffee on the wooden veranda with view to the sea :-) The subway is only a 10 Minute walk away. Only minus: it was very hot when we were there in July and there was no AC in the room (however the fan helped!) and the bathroom could do with a renovation. All in all we definitely enjoyed our stay at her house and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for some kind of personal style accommodation.
