Exactly as described...excellent location...a block away from out son's dorm at Tufts--Perfect!

Our stay at Tony and Janet's place was very pleasant.
The room was very clean and cute, free wifi, and a private bathroom. We slept so well! There is no way you can find an hotel room with the same accommodations for the same price. Also, you can take breakfast at their place if you want !
The house is very close to downtown (15 min) and public transportation.
Tony and Janet are very welcoming hosts and very helpful.
We definitely recommend this place !
Tony and Janet are wonderful people. They were cooperative with my late check-in in the middle of the week. Their house is absolutely beautiful. It is clean and well-maintanined. The room is spacious and clean. The bed has a heater! It was something I never tried before, and it was great for Boston's cold weather.
I highly recommend staying at Tony and Janet's beautiful house.
Tony welcomed me immediately on arrival and gave me helpful advice on museums and restaurants. My second-floor room and bathroom across the hall were clean and attractive. It was cozy despite the unusually cold weather. Very quiet. I loved the breakfast options. There is a sitting room, but I was tired when I returned from my course each day and preferred reading in bed with my feet up. Davis Square with a T stop and many restaurants are only a 10 min walk. The neighborhood houses appeared well cared for. People on the street were helpful when I asked directions. I met Janet briefly and she was also gracious and helpful.
Tony and Janet were great hosts! The room was clean and cosy; there was even an electric heating blanket to keep us warm.
We also had our own bathroom, which was very nice.
I would definitely recommend to stay with Tony and Janet.
Tony and Janet are incredibly warm and nice people! As both of them were working till late, we were given the permission to enter the house on our own (which was such a great option!) and also to use all their kitchen stuff.
The house is bright, large and absolutely clean! And also the private bathroom leaves nothing to wish for; even soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel are offered. GREAT!
We enjoyed dinner together and had great chats!
Somerville is such a nice place, with a safe and quiet neighborhood, little shops and quick connection to the T.
I can highly recommend this accommodation and these two wonderful hosts!
Thank you again for everything!

This was my first airbnb experience and I cannot see how it could be any better! Tony and Janet were extraordinary hosts who made me feel welcome and safe from the very first moment. They communicated constantly and even came and rescued me when I was stuck on Harvard campus in a blizzard on the third day of my stay. They are two of the classiest people I have met and I enjoyed spending time with them and getting to know them.
Their house is beautiful and in a safe neighborhood. It is only a couple blocks from several places to eat and shop. Both the Red Line and MBTA Bus Stops are within reasonable walking distance.
The bedroom and bathroom are cozy and immaculate. The entire house is welcoming and warm.
As far as value, this is best place you could stay in the area!
