  • Francesca was a great host and her apartment was comfortable and clean, exactly as described. About a 15 minute walk via the Somerville Community Path to the Davis Sq. T. Use Francesca's directions to find the apartment because (website hidden) maps will put you a block or two away.

    Response from Francesca:

    so glad you enjoyed your stay!

  • This is a nice little place. Looks just as it does in the pictures. Homey, warm and comfortable with a usable kitchen. Francesca was a very sweet host. We did run into a challenge as the bathtub drain was clogged and the tub rather dirty as a result. I asked Francesca if she could fix it for us. She was out of town and apologized and offered to reimburse us for the drain cleaner. Frankly, it wasn't how we envisioned spending part of our vacation and it made us a bit cranky. (At a hotel one would never be asked to take care of something like this.) But we went out and purchased the drain cleaner, and scrubbed the tub ourselves. At least the tub was cleaner, but the drain cleaner didn't work and we still showered in a deep, soapy puddle. I assume she'll get the drain fixed so the next guests will have a better experience. Except for the shower issue, it was a very nice place.

  • Extremely nice host and the space was good for a few days visit. Short walk from a strip of restaurants, CVS, and coffee shop. Longer walk to the Davis Sq T on the Red Line. Parking right outside. It's a bit noisy from upstairs, which wasn't a big issue for us, but if you're looking for total peace and quiet then this may not be ideal.

    Pretty much all we needed it to be for some rest while exploring Boston for a potential move.

  • Lovely, cheery, warm home - great location for Cambridge/Somerville visiting, which is just what we wanted. Follow Francesca's directions for arrival and you shouldn't have any problem!

  • Francesca's place was nice and comfortable. Kitchen gear was sparse, and no paper towels or dish towels (we used a washcloth), but there was enough to cook with, and the bed was comfortable. Also, I left a couple things behind and Francesca was really nice about getting them back to me, and was super responsive when we had questions during our stay. Overall it was a good stay and a great price.

    Response from Francesca:

    not quite sure why you thought kitchen gear was sparse.....the kitchen has eveyrhing you would need. ( except the missing paper towels I made you aware of) however cvs was right around the corner for everything you needed. Glad you a good stay!

  • Francesca's studio was perfect. She very graciously talked me through getting into the unit later at night and made sure everything was comfortable and as I needed. 15 min walk from Davis Sq T Station.

  • This is a very lovely, cozy apartment located about 3/4 mile from Davis Square. The walk is short (15 minutes) and very nice, as you take a pedestrian and bike path off of Cedar.

    The bed is comfortable, the apartment is clean, the kitchen is modern and easy to use, the bathroom stocked with towels and nice toiletries. Francesca, who is very warm and welcoming, made the check-in and check-out process incredibly easy. I definitely would stay again and highly recommend her place!

  • Great location, Free Parking, 20 min walk to the Metro. Francesca left a great set of instructions for us when we came to stay, as well as some great guidebooks for the area. There was allways the posibility to ask questions and look for help if needed. Francesca and her boyfriend Greg were really welcoming! What we liked is that they didn't bother with the check-in\check-out schedule - they just left the keys in a 'special' place so we were completely independent at this point.
