This is a private room with a single bed in the owner's apartment. I can add an airbed for a second person, but it's a bit small for two people to stay more than a few night. I provide sheets, blankets, towels, toiletries and a hair dryer for you and there is cable and Internet.You will have use of the kitchen and access to the washer/dryer during your stay.
I am an 8 minute walk to Tufts campus, on the bus line to the Orange, Green and Red Lines, and an easy 15 minute walk to the Davis Square Red Line station.
This is a quiet, safe, tree-filled neighborhood with on-street parking, 2.5 miles from Harvard Square, 4 miles from MIT, and 6 miles from downtown Boston, a 20 minute subway ride away with easy access to museums and many Boston attractions.
It's also an easy on and off for Route 93, 6 minute drive from Route 2 and 15 minutes from the Mass Pike.
I'm happy to serve a complimentary pot of tea (or coffee) your first morning
Several coffee shops and restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. Many more a bit farther away in Davis Square.

Maria is a very kind and accommodating host! The room was neat, clean, and in a convenient location. It is a pleasant 15 min walk to the red line (or you can take a bus instead of walking). There is also restaurants and a coffee shop within a five minute walk. Maria also quickly replies. Checking in is an easy process. I had a lovely time and will certainly stay here again when in Boston!
My host made me feel at home and very welcome. Cozy comfortable environment and neighborhood.
I feel so lucky that I can enjoy my first journey in the US with Maria, she is so so so nice. When I arrived at Harvard Square station it was almost 11:00 pm, yet Maria picked me right up with her own car. She not only helped me to buy the SIM card, but also provided information about how to get around Boston best. The room is warm, cozy and comfortable, I highly recommend this place. If I ever go to Boston again, I will not hesitate to stay with Maria again.
I had a very positive experience at Maria's apartment in Medford. She was welcoming, offering me tea (my preferred drink) several times and providing a friendly welcome when I came in at the end of the day. The location was perfect for visiting my daughter. The home is comfortable and met my needs for my three-day visit.
The eleven days that I spent in Maria’s room were great. Maria is a great host, she is so kind that she picked me up when I arrived Davis station. And the house is not too far from T, also connected by buses. There are some really nice restaurants in ball square, which is about 5 minutes walk from Maria’s house. The room is cozy. I had very good days staying with Maria. I think it will be a really good choice if you are looking for a reasonable housing to saty while visiting Boston. Definitely check this out.
I had a wonderful experience with Maria. She is a gracious host and very accommodating. Maria goes above and beyond in providing information about how best to get around Boston, and what to see.
Maria was fantastic. Great conversationalist and helped me out in a crunch. I enjoyed the neighbourhood shops / pubs. Very cozy bed in a nice, warm room overlooking the street. I would highly recommend Maria's flat to anyone.
