Interaction with Guests
We are quite busy and are both pursuing graduate degrees and working.
If we are hanging out in the living room, we love to chat with our guests and get to know them better. We are also happy to provide any recommendations for dining or assist guests with getting around Boston!
We live in the heart of Harvard Square in Cambridge. Harvard Square is a historic district surrounded by Harvard College with brick sidewalks, historic architecture and dozens of great bars, restaurants, bookstores, clothing stores, and other landmarks and shops. With tons of cafes and easy access to the Charles River, Harvard Square has lots to offer visitors and has great transit options for exploring the rest of Cambridge and Boston!
Public Transit: Our apartment is just a few blocks from the Harvard T stop on the Red Line of the subway. There are also several bus routes that meet at Harvard Station.
Bicycle: As avid bicyclists, my wife and I are happy to provide directions for some great explorations along the Charles River Trail, the Minuteman Trail, and safest routes by bike to other area attractions.

This was my first Airbnb reservation alone, and it worked out great. Tom and Amy were always friendly and helpful with any questions I had about the Greater Boston area, and their cats were absolutely adorable.
The location was close to Harvard Station as advertised, so getting around and exploring the city was super convenient. They also did a great job of keeping the place clean and tidy - I'd definitely go back for my next trip!
Tom & Amy's cool apartment was the perfect spot for our three night stay in Boston. They were so helpful & hospitable and our room was exactly as described. Overall an awesome experience, highly recommended!
My first air bnb Reservation. I'll keep this short. Its a very affordable place to stay around harvard sq, literally minutes from the sq (so the food, bars, and coffee shops & libraries if you're in for downright studying). Safe area, very nice people, clean room, nothing was a hassle. FYI - room is small but shouldn't matter. I was here for a short course to study so I didn't care.
My girlfriend and I really appreciated our 3 nights long stay at Tom's apartment, which is a few steps away from Harvard University. Tom and his wife Amy are very kind, helpful, and generous, and so are their 2 cats (at least kind...). Even being allergic to cats, I chose to stay at this place and it tells a lot about how clean Tom and Amy keep their apartment because I didn't have any allergic reactions during our stay. Everything is clean, including the bathtub and the toilet. The queen is very comfortable, and in a private /separated room (bedroom).
The Harvard subway to Boston is only 5min away from the door step and it talks 15min to get downtown.
We would highly recommend to stay at this very nice airbnb!
I love the area. It's only 8 minutes walk to harvard square. The only convenience store they have in the area is CVS, but there is a whole foods and an Hmart a few bus stops away. Tom and Amy are a very welcoming host and their cats are lovely. They provide towel and washcloth so you don't have to worry about it.
Tom and Amy's place was wonderful and I enjoyed a lot staying with them for four nights. The room was comfy and clean, their two cats were adorable (one of them would lay next to me when I was reading in bed), not to mention the peaceful neighborhood of Harvard Yard. The location could really give you an advantage of taking a walk at the yard after a day visiting downtown. It was very convenient to take the red line which leads to almost all the major tourism spots including Boston Common, MIT, Quincy Market... There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and CVS stores nearby. I highly recommended Tom's place - good location, nice room space, great hosts and high cost efficiency.

My wife Amy and I share our apartment with a very independent cat named Lucy. We enjoy cooking utilizing seasonal and local ingredients, and exploring the city.
