Tony and Janet have a beautiful home a short walk away from the bars, restaurants, transit and bike share around Davis Square. They were very welcoming and had a great selection of breakfast food that they shared. Highly recommended!

Tony and Janet's place is lovely, located in a quiet neighborhood with great access to the Tufts campus, T stops, and great restaurants and bars; even the local movie theatre is a walk away. They are generous with their home and available when you need help.

Tony and Jan were the most gracious hosts!! Their home is beautiful, comfortable and very welcoming! I was invited to share meals with them and they had a wide array of breakfast foods, snacks, drinks, etc. It was very obvious that they enjoy being of service and take great pride in their home and community. I would highly recommend this Airbnb!!!!
