The Space

A beautifully decorated flat with artistic flair in a safe area close to downtown.

Our apt has five rooms plus bath. We have a living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, deck and fenced yard.

We have a king sized memory foam bed in the master bedroom, a double bed with a new mattress in the second bedroom, and a pullout queen futon in the living room.

In the kitchen you'll find a chef's array of cooking equipment including a cuisinart, blender, toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher, many pots and pans and baking pans as well.

Cable TV and wireless (website hidden) in the master bedroom. Free laundry is in the basement as well. Linens and towels provided.

Quality furnishings with many antiques reminds you you are in New England.

One of the best parts is the beautiful porch with picnic table and fenced yard. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck!

Boston and Cambridge have a multitude of cultural events, great restaurants, and a very international feel (50% immigrants) with lots of students at its excellent universities. Medford was always more of a bedroom community, but was just voted as one of the best places to live for young urban professionals by Boston Magazine, so is being gentrified fast.

We are located a 10 min drive from Davis Square, Somerville and 15 min drive to Harvard Square, Cambridge. Easy bike ride to Tufts. There is easy bus and subway access to downtown Boston; less than 25 mins to downtown crossing. It is a 3 min walk to the bus, 5 mins on the bus to the subway, and 10 mins to North Station (for the north end) and 15 mins to downtown crossing. If you walk to the station it will take you about 15-20 mins. Driving we're right off 93, 15 minutes to downtown (without traffic). Free on street paking, (no permit required).

Please send me a message before making a reservation request, thanks!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Christina & Rick are great! The communication is instant no matter where they are. Both Christina and Rick are very accommodating and caring, super host! I totally enjoyed my 4-month stay in Medford, and felt like my second home. The house is exactly like it is shown on the website, very cozy, complete with everything you need. It is an easy drive to MIT and Harvard. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone, especially those with cars.

  • This house was great and spacious! It had such charm and was on a nice, quiet street. Christina was great to communicate with, she was fast at getting back to us. We were always able to park on the street right in front of the house so parking was never a problem. The house is adorable and looks exactly like the photos posted. We would stay here again for sure!

    From the house it was about 15-20 minutes from downtown Boston - We had a car so this was not a problem at all! Even though we didn't use everything, the kitchen seemed to be well stocked with cooking utensils and pots and pans. Everything you would need if you wanted to cook.

    Overall we had a great experience here and it was a nice place! Thanks Christina!

  • Jolie maison spacieuse et particulièrement bien équipée située dans un quartier résidentiel calme et permettant d’atteindre le centre ville de Boston en 15mn environ en voiture.
    Terrasse extérieure agréable permettant de prendre les repas sans vis-à-vis.
    Nous y avons passé un très bon séjour.

  • appartement relativement spacieux et bien équipé, très pratique pour visiter Boston en famille. Néanmoins, la salle de bains et la literie auraient besoin d'un coup de neuf.

  • First impression was what a charming house! I loved it and felt it was more than what I expected. I thought it was eclectic and I was amazed at all the little amenities.

    I appreciated the flexible checking in and checking out. I felt like they were very accommodating to our schedule and our needs. We all felt like we had excellent service and a beautiful place to stay. We needed to be in Medford to celebrate our daughters Wedding and I just knew that this would be perfect for us and it was!!!

    Thank you so much as this was a worry free transaction thanks to Christina and Airbnb.

  • Great apartment in an area quite convenient to the city! We parked on the street and were able to drive into town every day, but public transit is also available. Lots of room and a well stocked kitchen.

    June 2013
  • My family and I were in town for a wedding and we were happy we were able to stay at Christina's house. The house is a quick 10 -15 minute drive to to Boston. It's also located on a quiet block, so we definitely were able to sleep in. Christina was reachable and responded quick to email and text. Would definitely recommend her place if you are visiting the area!

    June 2013
  • I was just in town for a business trip and it was a great stay. Christina and her Husband did not bother me at all, yet welcomed me and I was able to reach them via text always. Great place. I had the 2 bedrooms all to myself and loved it.
