"Comfortable dockside appartment, with a touch of Luxury"
Even though our flight was a little late , and it was a miserable evening [ cold and wet ] , we were met at the apartment entrance and shown around by Nitzan.
He also took us to a shopping mall the n… More
"Attractive and homey, this was a fun place to stay in Jamaica Plain."
We'll always remember this place, tucked in the trees. Only drawback is the steep staircase between the 3 bedrooms and the rest of the flat. The bathroom is on the lower floor, so the creaky stairs … More
The apartment is attached to the main house and was built shortly after the original home which was in 1840! Might this explain a bit the 'creaky stairs' which I have no control over! This is a historic home. Also these were stairs that led up to a former 'attic' which is what gives this apartment its 'perched on top' tree house feeling. I wish there was another way to get that high up.

"Clean, Quiet, Convenient Lodging in Jamaica Plain"
This was our first time staying in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston. It’s a great area, and the neighborhood in which this lodging is located is quiet and safe, yet close to much that Boston has … More

Nice place to stay near the hospitals. We walked to several restaurants nearby, the pizza place at the end of the block is fabulous. This is definitely not a place I would take small children, there… More
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. You are right that it is not a good place for young children. I am so glad that you enjoyed the neighborhood and the apartment. Jamaica Plain is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Boston. I hope you can stay again!
Ideal for visiting Boston as Stonybrook station only a short walk away. Apartment although small has everything that you need, it is spotlessly clean and the bed is very comfortable. Parking space is … More

Thank you for choosing to book a stay at my Urban Oasis.
It always pleases me when my reviews let other guests know that my listing reflects exactly what you'll find when you arrive. A mini-apartment built on the "Tiny-House" model where every detail is functional and beautiful. My goal as a Host is for my guests to have expectations and hopes that their stay at Urban Oasis far surpasses.
All best to you in your travels.
