Tremont Street shops
When you visit CAJ House, you not only get our undivided attention, you are also immersed in an eco – system (nice term I picked up from my tree hugging days!) made up of small, locally owned shops. These shop visits provide original Bostonian items which can make your visit to Boston unforgettable and provide food and services which are mostly from local farms and businesses. At the same time you are strengthening our local economy.
Walking for just two blocks north on Tremont Street, shops will be on both sides (take a left outside 677 Tremont Street) there are at least 14 businesses owned by locals and two national chain (caldwell banker and starbucks) By shopping here, you are exercising your legs and lungs! Side benefits: you are reducing pollution and you are helping our neighborhood remain vibrant and strong and attractive and allow us to continue offering original stuff you cannot find elsewhere and which make Boston different from any other city.
Below I am providing a quick photo walk of some of these business. Please feel free to comment or send me ideas!
Fall window decorations
Another summer has ended. We are sad. But also excited by the prospect of Halloween and Thanksgiving: two great times to be in Boston. Julia and Javier and I have spent the afternoon decorating our office and front windows with fall foliage decorations. We love oranges, wheat color and dark reds of foliage.
See the results and come visit our furnished apartments at CAJ House.
One of the nicest aspects of owning a guest house is the freedom to decorate and surprise – delight our guests.
Last week Yulia spent a few hours with silk flowers and real branches and here are the results of her work.

Cafe’ at CAJ House
Though we offer self serviced furnished apartments, we strive to find ways to make guests feel cozy and welcome and comfortable. We want CAJ House at 677 Tremont Street to feel more than just a week or month long apartment stay; we want our apartments to feel like a second home. To add a little romanticism, we would like to make our place feel like a second home in a corner of Rome or Florence… A cappuccino and a croissant and a talk with your neighbor or the barista sounds to me like just the right ingredients to make our guests feel our love and and a great way to start the day. A cafe located on our commercial first floor sounds like a great addition to me.
Our present tenant, Sarni Cleaners is leaving December 1 and I would like to find a cafe partner to launch this concept.

Do you know anyone who would be interested in running such a place?
