Pets are permitted on an exception basis with specific advance permission. Pets are not permitted to be left alone in rooms. Pets are not allowed on the bed nor furniture. Bedspreads and linen found with pet hair will need to be replaced as some of our guests are allergic to pet hair. For pets reported making noise such as barking, owners will be contacted immediately. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Guests are kindly reminded that while pets are welcome, any damage or extra cleaning, including hair removal and special cleaning due to allowing pets on coverlets, beds, or anywhere else will result in extra charges. Your cooperation is appreciated. We hope you will appreciate that the next guest expects a clean, hair-free, pet-smell-free listing.
Similarly, there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the premises. This means smoking is not allowed on the front porch nor the sidewalk in front of the house, as loitering there is noted by neighbors and others.

The location was great. It was in walking distance of the T train, restaurant, and a parking garage. I really liked how it was entering the code to the front door and room. The host kept in contact with me. The room was clean and the bathroom was too, even though it was shared with the floor. I would stay here again if I am back in the Boston area.
Not much to say that hasn't been said. Location is amazing - right off Mass Ave between Harvard and MIT. If you want to explore Cambridge/Boston by foot or metro, you probably couldn't pick a better place to stay. While this isn't the kind of airbnb rental where you'll hang out with the host and share dinner, it is ideal for visitors who want a place to sleep at the end of a long day exploring.
John, the host, was extremely responsive and professional. (When I messaged that the bed was a bit too stiff, he had a foam cover added without hesitation). Very easy host to deal with.
Really great. Location was crazy convienient and the room clean, cozy and all good. The highlight, however, was the water pressure.
The place was quite. Neighborhood was great. Very close to Harvard and MIT.
John communicated all check-in requirements accurately and checked in multiple times to make sure that I was settled and had everything that I needed. Although I never met him, I appreciated his thoughtfulness and thoroughness.
This airbnb is a great place to stay, especially if you enjoy more privacy. I never had to wait for the bathroom or shower which was definitely a plus! In addition, the TV in my room was brand new with what seemed like limitless movie and tv watching options. After long days of exploring Boston it was nice to come back to my little room and chill out to a good movie. I would definitely stay here again!
The room was exactly what I saw in the photographs. There was cable TV in the room, and the location was in a very nice area and only a short walk away from the subway station. Inside the house was actually a little messy but the room and bathroom where both very clean. For a place in such a great location it is well worth it and I am extremely happy with my experience here. The host was also very quick in responding to any question I had and very informative in his answers. I definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Boston
