Welcome to our home! The room is very large and furnished with a comfortable queen tempurpedic bed and desk. Although one review says there was no private bathroom (mine was being repaired at the time, which is why it was shared) there IS a private bathroom. You also will have access to the rest of the house, including the living room, dining room, kitchen, back yard and roof deck. There is also a private entrance you can you. I leave fruit and granola for breakfast in the room, but if you would like something different please let me know!
Cambridge is an wonderful town with lots to see and explore. Our house is located a 5 minute walk from the Porter Sq train station on the Red Line and is close to lots of shops and restaurants. I also have 2 bikes which you are welcome to borrow to explore the city.
I am a friendly 28 year old teacher and happy to show you around and give you suggestions of where to go and what to see. In the house (it's a 5bed/4bath) live my parents, who are professors and love meeting new people, and my roommate who is a graduate student at Harvard. We look forward to meeting you!

The room was very good, Very spacious, clean and decorated nicely. The room has a full customizable closet with drawers, handing space and plenty of shelves. It also had a TV - which was a nice addition-.
There were also mini-fridge and tea kettle with an assortment of teas ( although I have not used either)
Monica was very helpful and she even picked me up from the train station as she was in the area.
Her parents are also very helpful and gladly answered my questions about directions and transportations.
I had a minor issue with the internet which Monica resolved but I noticed the connection was a tiny bit slow. It might be that I'm used to my Fios speedy connection at home.
Overall, I recommend you stay at this place and you won't be disappointed.
Monica's house is beautiful and in an amazing location, the room is huge and has stereo, tv, a desk and a private bathroom. Monica was really nice and kind, she was really helpful and patient when I asked her for advices about every kind of stuff and even when I had some problem with my flight. I totally recommend her for staying in Cambridge!
My stay with Monica and her parents in Cambridge was just perfect. Monica was extremely helpful and responded immediately, whenever I needed advice or any help. She lent me a bike which made it very easy to get around in Cambridge. Everyone in the beautifully art-decorated house was just extremely friendly, easy going and went out of their way to make sure I had a great time; I thus felt like part of the family right from the start. The place itself is just beautiful with a great roof-top terrace, and is fully equipped to make yourself at home. I enormously enjoyed my stay there and I will definitely make sure that whenever I come back to Cambridge/Boston, I will stay with Monica again!

The house is set on a pretty, quiet street near everything you need.
The room is as shown in the pictures and better.
Monica's description of the house, of it's occupants and of what you get as a guest - is exact.
She is kind and generous.
Monica is extremely nice, communicative and accommodating.
We changed our reservation several times and she made the necessary adjustments willingly, with a "no problem!" attitude.
We loved the "good vibe" of the house which another guest mentioned here, we liked the rooftop deck on sunny mornings and sunnier afternoons, and the bed was excellent (something that is not always the case with Airbnb rentals).
We are sure to return.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Monica's. Our bedroom was very large with lots of natural sun light. The bathroom was a good size and clean. We really appreciated the quirkiness and charm of the entire home. It felt very warm. The location is only a 15 minute walk to Harvard and a few minutes to the subway. Very quiet and residential yet so close to everything. I would definitely stay here again. We were well welcomed and felt as though we got a true Cambridge experience. Hope to be back soon.
Great room and a fantastic bed. The area is peaceful and Monica was a perfect host. I was able to borrow a bicycle and cycle into Boston, and when it dumped with snow the next day it was an easy walk to Porter Sq.
We had a great stay with Monica! She was very friendly, and the room was great -- clean, good bed, enough space, etc. In addition Monica had provided us with fruits, and we could borrow her bicycles -- so we could explore Cambridge and Boston by bike! We'd definitely recommend this place to our friends.
Monica was a very friendly host. The room and bathroom were nice and the whole house was beautifully decorated, a pleasure to walk through. And, we really enjoyed relaxing on the rooftop deck. Thanks for this great experience!
