A stay at Tony and Janet is one of the best places to get a good vacation if you want to stay in a private home and like to have a talk with the owners. Their welcoming was warm and hearty, so we felt welcome from the first second.
Their home was the setting for a very good vacation, which we would like to repeat. Their home is located in a quiet and cozy neighborhood
The room and the bathroom was just as we like, fine looking, clean and the breakfast facilities were also excellent.
Boston, including Somerville is a very nice area to visit. It was our first visit but not the last.
We would give our best recommandations for Tony, Janet and their home.

We had a very confortable 3 night stay at Janet and Tony's house. They are very welcoming, kind and friendly people. The house is very nice and very clean. Everything was perfect. They were very kind to offer us umbrellas when it was raining which helped us greatly.. We definately reccommend staying in their beautiful home!!
Tony was very nice and welcoming. It was my first time with Airbnb and I must say I was impressed. WiFi was good, had my own restroom to use, and the walk to the Davis stop (red line) wasn't to far. Lots of nice pubs in Davis square too.
This was our first AirBnB stay.
Tony and Janet were very warm and welcoming hosts.
Their home is clean and beautiful ,we were very comfortable there.
We hope to return very soon.
This was my first airbnb experience, and I have to say, the bar is now set really, really high! Tony and Janet were lovely, the room was just about perfect, and the neighborhood was excellent. Five stars.
Our hosts made us feel very welcome. Made it very easy to stay in touch to update our arrival plan. The room was extremely nice and the private bath was very nice too. On the morning we left, they made us a delicious breakfast! Very nice.
Tony and Janet were fabulous. My plane was late, and they were totally great about that. They had provided excellent directions to me to take public transportation which I did. I wish I had gotten a cab from Davis Square -- it's a lovely walk but not with my giant suitcase! Without the suitcase on the following two days, I enjoyed the walk from the T. (And good ice cream in Davis Square.)
The house is beautifully restored in the original style -- really down to the details. Janet made me feel right at home, toured me and showed me the tea and fruit for the morning. They have really made this like a charming "hotel" for a guest -- with a hair dryer, extra towels.
I had a lovely time with tea out on their deck in the morning. I spent two nights. Tony was back in town when I was leaving, and they allowed me to leave my suitcase there while I did my business in Boston, and then pick it up that evening.
I've stayed in about 5 Airbnb places worldwide so far -- this is probably the nicest so far. Thank you Tony and Janet!
