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, 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:

Comfy bed with clean linens and towels provided.

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 was a great host. Very caring and friendly. I had recently moved to the area when I stayed with Lara, and she was always very helpful and accommodating. Room was clean, quiet and peaceful. The private entrance was great and internet/AC worked great. I would recommend Lara to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Somerville/Cambridge area.
Lara was kind and welcoming. The neighborhood was really great, with the T stop and numerous restaurants just a few blocks away. The street is very quiet, so I had no trouble sleeping despite being at the front of the house. Having my own entrance was good for privacy, too. The room was sparsely decorated, and the furniture was basic, but it was a fine place to spend a couple of nights.
Lara was great! She is a deep and substantial woman with an interesting story to tell. Needless to say, we immediately connected and appreciated each other.
Her home is on a quiet, lovely street just a stone's throw from Davis Square. The location couldn't be better. The room was comfortable, and the private entrance made it feel like "my place."
I would definitely stay with her again, and would recommend her lodgings to anyone who's looking for a no-frills AirBnB experience in the Somerville/Cambridge area.
Lara was friendly. The space was fine and clean. No frills but it was quiet, had its own entrance, and I had street parking. It was cheaper than hotel options in the area and if you're on a budget this would definitely satisfy that.
Room was clean. I was able to get a great night's worth of rest because it was quiet and Lara was a very accommodating host! Highly recommend!
I stayed with Lara for a few weeks while looking for a permanent apartment. Wonderful host and great room in a fantastic location near Davis square.
