Tree top and Ocean View Room
|Address||Peverell St, 02125 Boston, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|

The room has a marvelous view of majestic old trees in one direction, and a panoramic view of the hillside and Boston Harbor in the other direction. It is fully furnished, including a memory foam Tempur Pedic bed. The shared kitchen is 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 moldings, 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.
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, view-able if you decide to book the room, is for my assistant Michael; he will let you in if I am away.
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 cemetery, and the oldest house in Boston!

Reviews of this property
The sweetest lady. First day she shower me around and took me with her to the supermarket. Because i was travelling alone I even got her spare laptop so i could search activities in de area better. A really warm home with nice clean and lange rooms. Mine had an amazing view.
Jessica is a great host. She cares about her guests. When I arrived at her house, she made me relax with her interesting story and served me a delicious cup of coffee. There are several kinds of coffee you can have for free. The location is convenient, less than 10min walk to the station. I enjoyed my visit in Boston. Thank you so much for welcoming me.
Muy agradable estancia en la casa de Jessica. Bien comunicada con el metro al centro de Boston y todo lo necesario para cocinar, asearse y ambiente tranquilo.
Jessica, una persona encantadora.
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 !
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.
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.
