About This Listing
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.
Common curtesy, no drugs or excccesive noise after 11pm. guests can smoke on the porch.
Check in is at 3 but we are happy to receive bags early. We used to allow early incoming guests to shower before going out for the day but it was hectic and the guests that had not checked out felt rushed. Given all this we now only recieve bags.
Parking is by Permit which we provide you to place on your dashboard. It is up to you to follow the rules clearly written on the pass therefore you park at your own risk. We have only had one person get a ticket for not following the rules which are very easy.
Vom ersten Moment an war mir Soledad sympathisch und ich fühlte mich gleich wohl in ihrer gemütlichen Wohnküche.Mein Zimmer war hell und nett eingerichtet. Das Bad war sauber. Soledad war mir behilflich, einen Kontakt zu einer Freundin zu machen,da mein Handy nicht funktionierte.
Ich danke dir,liebe Soledad,für deine Freundlichkeit und wünsche dir eine gute Zeit. Eine große Umarmung von mlr aus Deutschland.
It was a very good experience live here. The room is very clean and everything is convenient.
When I arrived, I found an envelope with my name containing keys. The apartment was empty, but Rodrigo arrived a few minutes later. He took time from work and biked over to make sure I got settled in. Soledad was away, but she responded to my email quickly when I had a question.
The accommodations are just as described and pictured. The other two bedrooms were also rented out.
I would definitely recommend this unit.
I stayed twice with Soledad and Rodrigo, and both times it was an absolute delight. The apartment is seperate from their living quarters, and three bedrooms comprise the rental area, where other travelers stay. The kitchen is well equipped, and the bathroom is modern and functional. There is a communal sitting area where chatting with other travellers is pleasant and roomy, and if you want privacy, the bedrooms are quite comfortable.
Gettng to the apartment is easy enough on the T from downtown, with a nice walk from the station or an easy 5 minute bus ride. No complications, and I say that as someone who is visually impaired and uses a blind cane.
Very quiet neighborhood and safe. Only good things to say, and I will be staying here again when I come to Boston.

About the Host, Soledad And Rodrigo
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.
