Interaction with Guests
As much or a little as they would like
This is considered to be one of the most diverse neighborhoods of Cambridge, a city already rated as one of the top 10 US cities to live in. Central Square which is where the apartment is, hosts at numerous amazing restaurants, from vegetarian organic (like the famous "LIfe Alive") to fine Indian (the first Indian restaurant in Cambridge was opened here and it is still thriving) to Ethiopian, Algerian, Tibetan, Japanese, Mexican, American....really you name it. Then there are the night clubs including the famous "Middle East" where many musicians and bands started their track to stardom.
Then there is the Cambridge Theater where you can see an real play for $25. And the Dance Complex, serious fun and dance, and the numerous yoga studios and gyms..and the three grocery stores all within a 10 minute walk...four banks...did I mention all the local coffee shops?
And somehow you can still escape it all within a block into the beautiful residential areas or by the banks of the Charles River with full view of Boston's skyline.
Location, location and character, it's an awesome place to be! I have been here for 12 years and still love it every day!
Easy, easy, easy. Everything is within walking distance including the major subway line that takes you everywhere you need to go. There is bike rental stand right in Central Square as well. Ample taxis stands too.
Other Things to Note
There are two adorable friendly cats who will share the apartment with you.
Please no smoking, excessive drinking, drugs or partying. Only guests who have are part of the reservation allowed. Be respectful of neighbors by keeping the premises peaceful. If you do bring your own food please take any meat products with you or dispose of them as I am a vegetarian. Thank you very much

We had a wonderful stay at Biliana's! The room was really nice and cozy and Biliana really made us feel like home. We just loved her cats - they were so friendly and sociable! The location was also perfect for a visit in Cambridge/Boston. Thank you so much, Biliana, we're happy to recommend this place!
The stay at Biliana's house was awesome! She was so nice and thoughtful! When we first came to the room, she had prepared water, glasses, and towels for us already. There was a cloudy day and she prepared an umbrella for us without us even asking. :)
The place is quiet, clean and comfortable! It is easy access to Harvard and MIT also red line which can take you to Boston downtown.
The cats are cute and friendly too! And they are smart!! Everyone will be good friends with them!
My parents stayed in Biliana's house for one night. The house is in a pretty good neighborhood, close to the T station and MIT graduate housing. Biliana was extremely friendly. The room was clean and in good (website hidden): her two black cats are gorgeous.
El cuarto es muy acogedor, la descripción está correcta, la cama es muy cómoda, hay buena ventilación e iluminación.
La ubicación está excelente! No puede ser mejor. A dos cuadras tienes infinidades de lugares dónde desayunar y comer. Tienes una estación de Metro muy cerca también (línea roja) que te permite moverte facilmente a cualquier parte. El barrio es muy tranquilo.
Biliana was a fantastic host! I didn't see her much while I was there because we had conflicting schedules, but she always made sure I had everything I may have needed. The location of her place is so perfect - a short walk from MIT, around tons of great places to eat, and only a two block walk from the T. The actual room is quite spacious and looks just as the picture shows. I would highly recommend staying here, and if I ever come back to Boston (which will hopefully be soon!), I will definitely book again with Biliana.

About the Host, Biliana
I am originally from Europe and have traveled extensively but have been a happy resident of Cambridge, Massachusetts for the last 15 years. I am a psychotherapist and a yoga teacher and I spend my very busy time between doing yoga therapy sessions, teaching and research and running a big counseling program in the Boston Public Schools.
At home I like to to maintain a quiet harmonious and clean space for my domestic hours and my daily yoga and meditation practice. I am quite health, diet and lifestyle conscious which is why I feel I fit so well in the Cambridge community. I also enjoy writing, swimming, surfing, skiing, hiking and dance. I look forward to meeting you and telling you more.
