Welcome! We're a magnificent cat/cat-lady duo with room to spare in North Cambridge, right off Massachusetts Avenue and just outside character-heavy Davis Square.
This is a private room in my sunny two-bedroom apartment, furnished with a desk, comfy chair, and a quality, queen-size air bed. The rooms are on separate sides of the apartment, affording a bit more privacy.
On a budget? Well, who isn't. Use my kitchen to make yourself a sandwich: there's fabulous local grocery store and a couple international grocery stores within blocks, and a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, 1.1 miles away). Free wireless internet. Street parking available with my guest permit.
Seven- or eight-minute walk to Davis Square and the Red Line, the line of choice during winter months, since the platforms are underground. Two minutes to the 77 bus stop which takes you directly into Porter and Harvard Squares (6 and 12 minutes by bus, respectively). Harvard Law is just 1.5 miles away, if you prefer walking. Want to get to downtown Boston? That's 25 minutes to Park Street, the Freedom Trail, and the beautiful Boston Commons.
In the interest of full disclosure: there's a parking lot beside the house, so there's passing, audible conversation outside during the dinner hours. However, it's a family steakhouse, so there are no drunk hooligans shouting at one another. Families; also, the elderly. I think they bus them in on Sunday afternoons...
I'm happy to host stays of up to a couple weeks or so: both I and the fur ball are friendly and easy to get along with. Sharing spaces is in my blood: my family lived in another family's extra bedroom for a year, and we passed it forward by hosting others in need of living space for years thereafter.
-Private room, shared bath
-Free street parking (with my permit)
-Free wireless internet
-Linens and towels
-Iron and ironing board

-I prefer check-in anytime after 3pm and check-out before noon (so I have time to clean!) but I can usually be flexible.
Languages: English (native); French (rusty)
Note: Just because life can change and I don't want to leave anybody in the lurch, I don't start accepting reservations until about three months before the date in question, so if you inquire well before then, I'm afraid my response will be try me later!
No smoking, please. Kitty stays inside. Ask if you'd like to have guests. Communicate desired check-in and check-out times, and just let me know if anything changes.
Otherwise, no curfews or other special rules!
Spacious room, brilliant location & Randi was a welcoming host. Logistics were super easy.
My favorite place to stay in Cambridge! Super convenient and super comfortable. It's always a pleasure to see Randi and her cat Orpheus.
Es war unsere erste Airbnb-Erfahrung und dank Randi, war sie ausgezeichnet.
Randi war freundlich, warmherzig und hilfsbereit. Die Anreise konnten wir problemlos absprechen, da Randi hier sehr flexibel war. Auch wenn wir uns nur gelegentlich sahen, war sie immer für ein kurzes Gespräch zu haben. In Ihrer Abwesenheit hat sich Ihre Katze ebenfalls freundlich und intensiv um uns gekümmert - diese Katze muss man einfach mögen!
Die Unterkunft war einfach zu finden und ist perfekt gelegen, in einer freundlichen und sicheren Gegend. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, die Metro und Restaurants sind nur wenige Minuten entfernt und liegen quasi auf dem Weg. Mit der Metro ist man bequem innerhalb weniger Minuten an relevanten Punkten in Boston.
Das Zimmer war angenehm eingerichtet und bot alles was man benötigt - Steckdosen, Stühle, Mülleimer, Heizung. Das Bett reicht bequem für 2 Leute.
Randy is so friendly and kindness host. The room have a good American atmosphere and sophisticated. queen bed is so comfortable that I can sleep well. David station has many stores and easy to access to the Cambridge or Charles river. if you want to buy food or everyday necessities, walk to the porter station. there is big super market.
J'ai séjourner 6 nuits chez Randi avec ma copine, la chambre correspond exactement à la description, Randi nous a très bien accueillit , elle est très sympathique , l'appartement était propre. Le quartier est très sympa avec des magasins et des restaurants autour. Nous serions très heureux d'y retourner ! Merci !
This was a great place to stay. The host is a fantastic person, allowing both privacy and very enjoyable company. At first I thought the area felt a little far away but then I discovered Davis Square right down the street. There are lots of nice walks and shops in the area of this Airbnb, and from Davis Square, it's a quick subway ride to anywhere in Boston.
The desk and plenty of electrical outlets for a traveling techie are perfect. I'm happy to recommend this Airbnb.
Working at MIT, get to take lunch beside the Charles River most days. You know what's great? The Charles River. Also, sailboats.
Interests: Cats, Art, Adding things to recipes, Single malt scotch, Walking, Reading, Walking while reading, Fire escapes, Talking with people who are passionate about something.
I have a lot of books, FYI.
As a host, I'm a welcoming, helpful kind of person, but I'm responsive to whatever your desires are. I'm out frequently No pressure to socialize.
