Private room in bright, clean, modern, well-equipped apartment with off-street parking. Apartment is shared with me (female high school teacher) and my friendly cat. I'm happy to give recommendations for what to do, and I love my neighborhood!
Looking for a clean, quiet, modern place to stay in Boston for much less than the cost of a hotel room? Want tips from a local about what do to and where to eat?
My condo is in Somerville, a residential neighborhood convenient to downtown Boston and Cambridge. You'd be sharing the apartment with only me, a high school teacher who has been living in the apartment for 10 years.
Somerville has tons of great restaurants, bars, and live music. Arts-related events are always happening, and I love living here. Just let me know what you are interested in (food, music, outdoor activities, museums, shopping, etc.) and I'll clue you in on what to check out. The neighborhood is safe, and I often walk home in the dark after meeting up with friends.
NOTE: I will be out of town from February 14-23. During those dates you will have the apartment to yourself. Message me for more details or see my other listing.
Private room in renovated 2 bedroom, 1100 square foot (100 sq. m) condo. The bathroom is shared with me. The double bed accommodates two guests.
Early or late arrival is never a problem, so you will not have to worry about getting into the apartment if your travel plans change. And you can leave your bags here as late as you'd like if you are catching a late flight, train, or bus.

Please tell me a bit about yourself and why you're coming to Boston if you are interested in renting the room. I love Airbnb because it gives me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. I hope you will choose to stay with me!

I moved to Boston from Texas and stayed with Stacy for a month while I was looking for a job and apartment.
Stacy was very friendly and she instantly helped me feel at home. She gave me a ton of advice on living in the city and helped me navigate. Her apartment was so cute, modern, clean and comfortable. Her cat, Cookie, was also very friendly and a good cuddle buddy during chilly nights.
All-in-all, it was a wonderful experience. I felt very safe in the neighborhood, even when I was walking around by myself at night.
Stacy's a kind host. She drove us to Sullivan station so we didn't have to brave the snow storm. Definitely would love to stay over again over summer. Sebastian the cat was awfully cute too! :D
Stacy was awesome and extremely organized. Not only did she reply immediatley to our request, she also sent a detailed (website hidden) Doc with all the information we could possibly need. She also had tons of travel information and a binder with instructions for printer access and directions to her favorite spots in town. She is obviously a pro at hosting out of towners. Unfortunately we only saw her one time during our stay but was generous enough to give us a ride to Davis Square which saved us a bus ride on our first night when we weren't familiar with the system yet. The only con to this place is the distance to the T but once you figure out the bus system it's not an issue at all. She also has the most cuddliest cat in the world to keep you company. :)
Stacy is friendly and interesting person :) The information about transportation she provided me ahead of the trip was incredibly helpful and saved my time. Cookie (cat) was also very friendly and nice from the very first time. Nice and cozy room and facility, safe neighborhood, it was great stay! Thank you, Stacy!
This was our first actual Air B&B experience........... and we really enjoyed it, your place and you. For us this was a good location to discover as much of Boston we could in the few days we had.
Your apartment is great, the room perfect for our needs and the breakfast options, more than enough.
If we can, we will be back, Way more things to discoverer in Boston and also Somerville that has lots to offer to!
Tip for next guests(new to Boston), park your car, leave it there and take public transport. 7 day Charlie ticket, only $18.00. Once you figured out the system, takes you everywhere and way faster than with a car.
Thank you Stacy, perhaps see you in Cape Breton at The Dancing Moose Cafe.
Cheers, Yvonne & Ton
Stacy was a perfect host. Her apartment and the room we stayed in were clean and very comfortable. Stacy was VERY helpful. When we booked the room, she emailed a (website hidden) doc with very useful info about the area she lives, Boston transit, etc...The room also has a lot of Boston information and maps. Be prepared for a lot of public transit and walking. Overall, my boyfriend and I had a great stay.
As our first Airbnb experience, it was a positive one. The neighbourhood was very nice and residential, about a 25 minute walk from the subway station. Everything was very clean, Stacy kindly let us have access to her kitchen and some breakfast items. Her cat is incredibly cute and friendly too. There was a cold snap while we were there, and while Stacy did provide space heaters and extra blankets it was a little chilly at night. Otherwise, highly recommended!
I wish I would have known you were chilly at night so I could have remedied the problem. I hadn't yet put the winter-weight down comforter on the bed, and my energy-saving automatic thermostat lowers the temperature when it doesn't sense any motion in the house. Glad you enjoyed meeting Sebastian!
My experience was similarly positive to the other reviews: Stacy was very accommodating with breakfasts, coffee and parking. She gave me lots of useful information for getting around Boston. Her cat is also a great host. :) While the apartment is not exactly at the center of the action, it is reasonably convenient for getting to downtown Boston, and I enjoyed staying in a quiet neighborhood. Overall I had a comfortable stay, and highly recommended.
A great host : I had a very convenient 3 days in Somerville with most logistics taken care of. I had fresh towels, a clean room with comfortable bed, and was graciously allowed use of parking space and dinnerware. Would visit again.
Nice room in a cosy neighborhood! Even if we met Stacy for few minutes, she was very accommodating and her apartment worth the trip! Easy to find, great arrangement (keys, parking, maps, guidebook, etc.). A real pleasure!
