We were there for 6 days. The place is really nice. Closer to the public transit and restaurants. It takes only 10 minutes walking. I had 01 parking space for my car. Very clean and quite place. I highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay with Tony and Janet. The room was clean, comfortable, and had tons of storage. The bathroom was also very nice! The selection for breakfast was great and Tony and Janet were very welcoming. Overall everything was perfect inside the house - it was very cozy but upscale. The location was also great for anyone who wants to be in the Somerville/Medford area - which is beautiful. The house is a short walk from the red line which has access to central Boston and most other areas including Cambridge. Davis Square, which is very close to the house, is a cute and fun area with great places to eat. The house is in a very nice location, the home was beautiful, and Tony and Janet were accommodating and wonderful. Thank you for having us stay!

You could not be more lucky to find yourself in Tony and Janet's home. It is more a B&B experience than an Airbnb one. The house is beautiful, spotless and conveniently located. The immediate street and neighborhood is quiet but just blocks away are parks, red-line transit and a hub of boutiques, restaurants, a movie theater, pubs and Tufts University campus. Transit from airport by bus and red line to Davis Square station is free and then it's an easy walk, even with rolling suitcase, to the house. I hesitate to gush lest there never again be an empty room for me here. But I can't do less than try to return a portion of the generosity given to me by these lovely hosts. You are in for a treat if you can get a reservation here.

I had a wonderful stay at Tony and Janet's. Their home is beautiful. I had a room with my own private bathroom just next door. Both rooms very clean, perfect WIFI connection. They offer coffee/breakfast in the morning, which I appreciated very much! The house is just a short walk from the train station, from where it is very easy to get to all the sightseeing spots in the city. Neighborhood very quite. I would definitely recommend staying here.
