Your modern chic place for 4 close to the best of what the city has to offer.
Stay in a very cool building in vibrant Union Square in Somerville. On the outside it's a historic police station; on the inside, it's ultra-modern apartments, and one of them has a cozy bedroom with double bed just for you.
One of the hottest new bars in town, great coffee shops, and popular restaurants are right in the neighborhood. Even more of the best restaurants in the city are just a short distance away in nearby Inman Square. Harvard University is just one mile away, and the bus stop right outside the building offers easy access to Cambridge and to Boston by either the Red or Green lines.
For those of you who prefer to cook for yourself, there's also a grocery store a quick walk away.
Our place is neat and cozy and we love having visitors! You can expect us to be available if you need something, if not we'll be out of your way and let you enjoy your stay in Beantown!

We like to think of Somerville as the Brooklyn of Boston and not that we're bias or anything but our neighborhood, Union Square, is the coolest place to live at the moment. We have some of the best new dining establishments right in our backyard, and we're still only a few miles from all the best parts of Boston and Cambridge.
We're not big on rules, but since you asked:
-Be friendly, polite, and respectful
-Let us know if you need anything
-Take your belongings with you when you leave
-No smoking please.
-We live in a quiet building and like our neighbors. Please no parties, or loud noise after midnight.
Although we never met in person, Brian made us feel very welcome in his home. The listing was just as described and it was a beautiful, spacious and comfortable home. It was in a great location and not too far from the city. We really enjoyed the local bars and restaurants.
It was a wonderful stay. The host was really sweet to provide all the information, metro cards and parking permit. The rooms are stylish and comfortable. I love it!
Brian (our host) was infinitely patient in answering my multiple queries over a period of many days. The condo is indeed ultra modern in a nicely maintained 100+ year old building. Extremely conveniently located next to tons of eating establishments. The condo was well equipped allowing us to feel at home almost immediately.
This condo is in an awesome location - it's really close to a lot of great places to eat and drink. It's also really convenient to get anywhere in Boston. The parking passes are very helpful. The building is really nice and quiet. The condo was super clean and very well decorated. I think the host has made some changes to the furniture and they make the place seem even bigger!
Brian was a wonderful host! He replied instantly to all messages I sent him and was extremely friendly and helpful! We had a great time in his apartment. It is located in a very nice neighbourhood in Somerville surrounded by a large variety of cozy restaurants and shops. The area is easily accessible from downtown Boston via the Green Line and bus or by cab at no more than $ 18 incl. tip. The apartment is very spacious, beautiful, super clean and comfortable. Everything was perfectly organized. I fully recommend this place!
5 of us lived in Brian and Steph's apartment for two (website hidden) is a great location with lots of dining choices. We had brunch at neighborhood restaurant twice in a roll. The apartment is very nice too, it has everything we needed and is very comfortable to stay in. Brian and Steph even left a welcome card for us. Totally enjoyed our stay there and will go back if we come to Boston again.
Brian was a pleasure to deal with. They have this down well. Clean and beautiful apartment, and right near downtown Boston. Would definitely stay again. Made our trip just that much nicer. Thanks Brian!
