About this listing
Bright, clean, modern, well-equipped apartment with private parking. Includes use of kitchen, living room, etc. I rent out only one guest room, so you will be sharing the space with only me (high school teacher) and my friendly cat. Welcome!
My apartment is in Somerville, an artsy neighborhood convenient to downtown Boston and Cambridge. Somerville has tons of great restaurants, pubs, and live music. There is an emphasis on promoting locally-owned businesses rather than chain stores and restaurants. Arts-related events are always going on, and I have loved living here for the past 12 years! 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 frequently walk home after dark from Union or Davis Square.
Private room in modern 2 bedroom, 1100 square foot (100 sq. m) condo. The bathroom is shared with me. The comfortable double bed accommodates two guests.
Early or late arrival is never a problem, as I have a way for you to get the keys if you arrive when I'm not home. And you can leave your bags here as late as you'd like if you are catching a late flight, train, or bus.

Note: I have a very friendly cat. I usually try to keep her out of the guest room, but you'll want to pick another place if you are allergic!
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!
You will have access to all of the common spaces in the apartment, as well as my laundry room in the basement.
-Smoking is not allowed in the apartment, driveway, or on the porch. Please only smoke on the public sidewalk.
-Don't allow the cat to go outside. She doesn't try to run, so this is easy.
-Be sure to lock both the building door and the door into the apartment (they don't lock automatically).
-Remove shoes when coming inside.

Stacy is a very nice and helpful person. I enjoyed the time at her home and in Boston. I would recommend Stacy at every time. Sebastian is a sweet cat
Stacy provided a wealth of invaluable materials, from how to get around town, to the best local restaurants and bars. The apartment had a wonderful welcoming style, and her cat, cookie, was a delight. Stacy was the most conscientious of hosts.
Wonderful host, sweet cat, very thoughtful everything provided for including earplugs!
Stacy was very nice with us during our stay and her appartement is really great. We would definitely recommand it to anyone who looks for a nice place to stay in Boston.
Staying at Stacy's during travelling Boston was the best decision we could possibly make! It was like staying at stylish and early-adopter friend's home. After one day at here, I could fully understand the feedbacks from other guests and Holly's comments. We really loved everything - place, host (and her lovely cat - cookie), direction. Strongly recommended!
The experience in boston was perfect and stacy was very nice and available with us. You feel like home in her appartement. It's clean, quiet and stylish.
What a great stay in Somerville! Stacy was very helpful with recommendations and how to get to/from Boston. The apartment is very clean, has all the necessities, and we felt right at home.

About the Host, Stacy
I'm a high school science teacher, textbook writer, and for the past several years, an Airbnb host. I enjoy taking photos (both digital and Polaroid), going to arts-related events, walking around the city, cooking mostly vegetarian food, rock climbing, and reading novels. I am a sucker for mid-century modern design and collect old cameras and pachinko machines. I love living in Somerville and think it's the absolute best place to live in greater Boston. I'd be happy to recommend things to do and places to eat in the area. I share my space with a very friendly cat named Sebastian (nicknamed Cookie).
Not only do I love hosting on Airbnb, but I always use it when traveling. So far I've stayed in great places in the US, Sweden, Estonia, Spain, Germany, and Turkey. But my favorite place to visit is Helsinki, Finland, where my boyfriend is currently living.
