Natalia was very welcoming and provided us with information on Cambridge and Boston. The location was convenient for us, at walking distance from Kendall and Lechmere metro stations, and the room and bathroom were as described in the listing and very private, in the basement of the apartment/house.
We really enjoyed our stay in Cambridge/Boston!
Natalia provided lots of information about Cambridge and Boston as well as nice cool water (it was 93 in the shades!)
The apartment was very clean and practically furnished.
The location is great for Cambridge.
The space was a little hard to find (it's off the street) but Natalia sent clear instructions to follow.
The space is private and features its own private bathroom - all downstairs, away from the rest of the house. You've as much privacy as you want :)
Natalia set the place up beautifully. A great set of amenities too - the highlight (as a Brit) being Twinning's tea.
This was our first Airbnb experience and we really enjoyed our stay! The host (Natalia) provides a very nice private room (one bed, a desk, private bathroom, and storage space) within walking distance of public transportation (known as the “T”) in a safe neighborhood. The closest T stops are Lechmere on the Green Line and Kendall on the Red Line. Natalia is very helpful in providing information about the area. She also provided a parking pass, making this the only place in the Cambridge/Boston area where we could park for free! However, if you don’t plan on traveling beyond Cambridge/Boston, don’t rent a vehicle since the best method of travel is taking the T and walking a bit. Highly recommend this Airbnb for a single person or a couple.
I loved staying at Natalia's! It was simply one of the best Airbnb experiences I have ever had. Natalia made me feel incredibly welcome and helped me with local directions and recommendations. If you are looking for a top-notch host/stay, pick this one!
Super Host! We had a good time there, Natalia gave us tips and was always friendly. We had much privacy. Thanks!
I stayed here for 3 nights recently for my MIT reunion. It took me about 15 minutes to walk to the Kendall Square Redline MBTA station. The neighborhood is safe, and I walked home at 11PM with no problem. When I chose to use Uber, a car arrived in less than 5 minutes, and I only paid $5 to get to 77 Massachusetts Avenue and $20 to Logan Airport. I was delighted to meet Natalia and her children, and I would be glad to welcome them all into my home as they welcomed me into theirs.
