The Space

Well located room with a single bed. Close to Boston and Cambridge, a 12 minute walk or 3 minute bus ride to the subway that takes you downtown in 12 minutes, a 3 minute walk to a bus that takes you to Harvard Square in 12 minutes (red line) and a 5 minute walk to a bus that takes you to MITin 15 minutes and the Longwood Medical area in 30 minutes. a 5 minute bus ride to Leechmere (green line) and much more
Boston now has a great bike rental system and we have a center a 12 minute walk from us. You can rent bikes using a credit or debit card and use the bikes for a day or more for very reasonable rates. You can return the bikes to the same place or to anywhere there is a center. Pretty cool!
This room is built out of very thin wood and has a plastic accordion door. We made it in response to seeing people renting out their couch for the same price but we thought having privacy would be better.The room is small but has room for hanging and storing clothes, a small desk for your laptop, a single bed, a chair, windows and several lighting options.
There is a living room for you to hang out in. Also a completely functional kitchen for your use with a round table and chairs.
There is a porch for people to hang out on and space for you to store your bikes.
The apartament is in the same house as the other apartament where we sleep and it is our plan to use both. We are readily available to guests and you are welcome to come visit us in our apartment in the same house.. We have lived in the Boston area a long time and can help you (if you need) get around and find fun things for you to do and see.
Please read our reviews and rest assured that it is our aim to be hospitable, very clean and to provide you with an exellent value and the very best airbnb experience possible.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a great experience there. The room was simple, but all I expected and needed. Host was very accommodating in allowing me some flexibility to fully enjoy Boston unencumbered with my luggage.

  • The apartment was very clean and Soledad was there when I arrived to show me around. The tap water there tastes great, so no need to lug bottled water.

  • When I saw the good comments I made a reservation without any hesitation.
    Soledad was really nice just like everyone said.
    She replied so fast and gave me a lot of information so that I didn't feel afraid.
    Even I didn't stay in her house eventually cause something happened,
    If I will go to visit Boston again, Soledad will be my first and only chioce :)

  • I had a great time staying with soledad. She's very nice and helpful. The only problem for me was an apartment is a bit far from the station. It's ok if just walking to travel, but really hard to carry all luggages to or from there.

    Response from Soledad And Rodrigo:

    there is a bus from the station that brings you to three minutes from the house. The bus is a 4 minute ride. The station is a 12 minute walk which with bags is too much but the bus helps

  • Soledads apartment is fantastic and I didn't want to leave!
    Location is great, just ten minutes to the orange line in 1 direction, or to great restaurants and bars in the other. The neighbourhood is very peaceful
    And safe (I was traveling alone and felt completely safe in the whole of Boston, even coming home at Midnight).
    I stayed in the single room and although small it was perfect and so comfortable - there is nothing that you will need that you will not find in this apartment.
    If you are considering this apartment, book it, you really won't regret it!
    Thank you Soledad for making my time in Boston amazing!

  • Clean, cosy and comfortable and conveniently situated only 150m from a 10 min busride to Harvard. It was ideal for my one week stay. Thank you Soledad and Rodrigo.

  • Soledad was a very good host. She and her family are helpful and friendly. There is nothing negative to report.

    June 2014
  • Soledad has given a lot of thought to make visitors feel welcome. The room is cheerfully furnished and has many thoughtful additions to make you feel right at home. The room is sun filled and clean. I am glad to have stayed here and plan on returning.

  • Staying in Somerville at Soledad's was lovely. She and her daughter were very knowledgeable about the area and how to get different places. She even forewarned me which restaurants to check out and which to avoid! I ended up eating at the same truck stop diner each morning that she encouraged checking out even though it's tiny and unassuming (Eat at Buddy's on Washington- so good!). The apartment was tidy and spacious, and the water pressure in the shower was awesome. I had a little trouble explaining to my cab driver from Cambridge how to get there, but the directions Soledad emailed me were a big help in that! I don't know that I'd return to Boston, but if I do, I'll definitely try to stay at one of Soledad's apartments again!

I, Soledad am Chilean and Rodrigo is Colombian. We are social, lovers of all things art, music and travel. My hispanic upbringing made me hospitable and domestically inclined. I love great food as a social ritual and cooking as an expression of love. We are open hearted and abhor judgemental people. We love life and find joy in the tiniest of things. We enjoy experiencing places by meeting "normal" people doing everyday things.
