Our beautiful, spacious, airy apt. has a large, furnished room with three windows that brings in sparkling sunshine. The room has its own private entrance which is a very popular feature of the room as it allows one to come and go as one pleases without walking through the rest of the house. The room also has a private porch (pic) with seating to enjoy your coffee and muffin - and last but not least a ceiling fan helps with sleeping during hot days - We also have an air conditioner now, so guests can sleep in comfort during the heatwave days. The room - and apartment for that matter , has a very "quiet, meditative vibe" - (since I am a Meditation teacher with a regular practice) which makes for a very restorative ambiance.
The apt. is on a very quiet, residential one way street. It is a pretty, tree lined street and the air is full of birdsong at most times. The apt. is about 2 blocks to Davis square which has a whole variety of restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, grocery stores and a great old movie theater. It is also a VERY SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD -and I say this particularly for women who are interested in this listing. I often walk home around midnight after having dinner with friends and I have always felt safe doing that. I have never felt this safe in any other neighborhood that I have lived at. The street is well lit and the houses are owned by people who have lived on the street for generations. There are also quite a few graduate students and young professionals that rent in on this street. We also have private parking in the driveway for anyone who has a vehicle.
We are clean, neat people and the apt. reflects that - it has new hardwood floors and a modern feel to it. There is free Wireless internet and the basement has a washer/dryer in it (coin-op). You share the kitchen with us - which is well stocked with pots and pans and a stove-top espresso coffee device.
I also have another listing:
Quiet, calm and peaceful house.
4 minutes to Davis Subway and buses.
Free Private parking
Comfy bed with clean linens and towels provided.
Washer/Dryer (Coin-op)in the basement.
Smoking on the porch permitted - not in the house -
As mentioned before, this is a very quiet apartment -though we are in no way anti-social - so if you are looking for a restful place to be after exploring the city then this is the place you have been seeking - and now you have found it.
Lara went above and beyond to make my one month stay wonderful. I was new to the area, and she was extremely helpful and thoroughly understanding with my moving arrangements. On the day I arrived, she took the time to walk with me (in the freezing cold, nevertheless) to show me how to get to the T and shops in Davis Square.
Lara exemplified kindness, warmth, and generosity in our daily interactions. She is a lovely person who maintains a clean apartment, and the room that I stayed in is accurately portrayed by the pictures seen here (very sunny, neat, spacious plus with a private entrance). The place is in a very strategic location, as noted by all the previous reviewers, and allowed for extremely easy commutes.
Sharing a home with Lara was an enjoyable experience that I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a peaceful place in Somerville. Thank you, Lara - you were fantastic, and truly a Superhost!
Lara was very friendly and kind. She made me feel very welcome during my stay there. The room was nice and clean to stay. Good WiFi connection. The place is located within 5 minute walk from the subway station (the red line) which is a great. Safe neighborhood (Davis Square) with lots of shops and restaurants.
This was my first airbnb experience. Lara made me feel at home, she is a wonderful host. The neighbor was very convinient, just walk distance to subway station and two stops from harvard square. I will defenetively come back.
Lara was so sweet, kind and friendly host. She kindly told me about sightseeing around there. The room clean and pretty. The house is located in a quiet and safe area so I could be relaxed and slept very well. And moreover it was close to downtown so it was easy to reach there by subway.
I'm so gland that Lara's place was my first Airbnb experience.
Thank you Lara!
This was my first Airbnb experience and it gets an A+. Lara was the perfect host. The room is exactly as in photos,the apartment is spotless and so close to the subway! Perfect for anyone wanting to do some sightseeing or needing to get around by public transportation. Lara was kind, friendly and very helpful. Her warmth and hospitality definately made my trip all the more enjoyable. The room is very quiet and not on a busy street so you can get a great nights sleep. Restaurants, cafes, bars are close by but you feel removed from the "hustle and bustle" because of the quiet location of the apartment. I look forward to my next trip to Boston so I can stay again!
This was my second stay at Lara's home. Just as good as the first. Will book again. Really love the privacy of the room, cleanliness of the house and location is just perfect.
