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.
What a delightful place and wonderful hosts!
Soledad & Rodrigo allowed me to drop off my bags early after my red eye flight, so lovely!
The apt was well kept, quiet, there was an outdoor porch where I read & got to know the other guests who stayed. The location was great! Close enough to be easy on public transport & far enough away for it to be quiet & feel like home. I will stay again if ever in Boston! (Also, Soledad was very prompt w/responding to any & all ?'s before & during my trip) Thank you!
I had a great time staying at Soledad and Rodrigo's place. The room was good, the bed was soft, and everything was clean. Same goes for the bathroom, good showering and sanitary facilities.
I would have loved to meet the hosts, but unfortunately I didn't get to.
Overall I very much enjoyed my stay here.
Great space! so many little details thought of, and so appreciated! Bed was delightfully comfy, and 4 windows and the ceiling fan made sure i was nice and cool! Soledad is one of the nicest hosts I've stayed with anywhere - super helpful with travel tips, where to park my car to get the subway, and she even offered to loan me an alarm when i forgot mine! It is really a fully functional apartment ( French press) for your coffee. I enjoyed the patio each evening. This is what AirBnB is all about! Lots of great restos in the area, too bad I didn't have the time to try!I'd stay here again in a minute! Thanks Soledad!
Directions to the place were clear, and check in was effortless. The space is so beautiful, impeccable, and well furnished I wanted to stay there all day, but I had to get out and explore the city! They gave me great information on transport, the area, food, and miscellaneous. The neighborhood was very pleasant to look down on from out the room window. Very peaceful to fall asleep to at night. One of the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen. Wonderful in every respect.
It was a very comfortable and clean place to stay! Soledad is such a sweet person, she explained to me all of the things I needed to know (how to get to the university etc.). I got to know new people who came from all over the world in the house, which was an extra fun thing I enjoyed.
I didn't actually get to meet Soledad and I was only in the apartment for 1 night but had a blast. I was staying in 1 bedroom and there was also 1 other Dutch guy and a German couple there too. Everyone was really nice, had a lot of fun sitting around at night and talking etc. The apartment itself is really well equipped, with all utensils that you could require in the kitchen, beds are comfortable and bathrooms are really nice and clean. Soledad makes it really easy to find your way around and makes you feel right at home! Would definitely stay here again if I came back to Boston. The street itself can be a little hard to find (I did end up at a different street of same name at the wrong end of town!), so make sure you know exactly which street to go to before you leave!
Actually this is a good point. Some people when traveling are tired and think they are coming to Boston proper. There is a duplicate street in almost every cityy and town so when people use maps from the internet and enter Boston as the destination they end up far away from us. We are in Somerville which is a city that is about 1.5 kilometers from Boston. It is best to follow the directions I have on the airbnb page

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.
