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.
Soledad was great. Super clear instructions re: getting into the place. Super clean room and bathrooms. Slept well. This part of Somerville is crawling with Uber and Lyft drivers--no problem getting into town from here.
I arrived at Soledad and Rodrigo's place at about right. Soledad had messaged me important information about the area and helpful tips for getting around. There were two couples sharing the kitchen and living room space with me, and everyone got along just fine. I slept very comfortably and in the morning Soledad gave me a map and explained the popular tourist sites to myself and the one couple who were still there. Very comfortable, very hospitable and welcoming.
I had a nice stay in Somerville. The room is small and cozy and as well as the shared living room, kitchen and bathroom it was extremely clean. The meaningful pictures and the accurate description allow to gain a good impression of what to expect. Soledad provided a lot of useful information not only about the nearby area but also about sights in Boston and how to get there. A late arrival was no problem.
One of the best airbnb experiences I ever had! The flat was just perfect (clean, lots of space, fully equipped kitchen). Moreover, Soledad cares really well about her guests, gives you a lot of tipps of what to do in Boston and is always available for questions. I definitely recommend it!
Clean and comfortable room,
Kind and warm host. I was very satified with this. This is best place.
What great hosts Soledad and Rodrigo are! I got to meet Soledad, who is very sweet, as I'm sure Rodrigo is :-) They were very welcoming and I look forward to staying there again. The place was immaculate, and the room is exactly how it's stated on the listing, so there is/was no misleading anybody (not that I expected to be). It was fine, and I slept like a baby! I appreciated the fact that there was a space heater in the room and extra blankets just incase I got cold. I also saved money because there is a working stove, refrigerator, and cabinets. There is the common area, where I hung out for a bit with the other guests staying there. Although check out is at a certain time, they let me hang out in the common area while I was waiting to go where I needed to go. In fact, the cleaning woman even gave me a ride lol. I walked from Sullivan Station (Orange Line), and it was only a 10 minute walk. I will definitely stay there 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.
