I am a Spanish teacher and translator. I live alone in a three bedroom apartment, spacious and clean. No pets. I enjoy traveling, reading, and meeting nice people.
Rosa is a very warm and welcoming host. The apartment and the room are both clean and comfortable. I had a great experience staying there. Thanks Rosa!
I had a lovely stay at Rosa's place. She is so helpful and great host!!!
We had a great stay with Rosa. Comfortable room with heating and a short bus ride from Davis square. Getting into the city takes a bit longer as you need to take the bus and then the T. All in all a great stay and Rosa was a lovely host!
Rosa's house is large, quite and very well furnished. The room at my disposal was such as well. The restroom was also quite OK, spacious enough.
Rosa treated me extremely well. I enjoyed her efforts for making good breakfast, her concern about my late arrival, most of all I enjoyed talking to her so long and friendly.
I do recommend her hospital place. The only little disadvange is the necessity of organizing well with buses to get to downtown. The place is a bit far away from MIT and Harvard. But with a bit of organization, all goes very smooth.
A comfy bed, a neat and quiet room in Somerville not too far from groovy Davis Square with its bars, moovies theater and restaurants. We had a car, so we didn't use public transportations (if you want to go to Boston you need to take a bus, or maybe walk like 20 minutes to take the T).
As a couple visiting Boston for a few days, we really enjoyed staying at Rosa's and were glad to meet her.
Clean, bright room; friendly and generous host. A great place!
I stayed for almost a week at Rosa´s home while finishing my postgrad studies at Harvard. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, much better than expected and that I bargained for. The house is 2.3 miles away from Harvard Square and Monument Hill, which makes it walking distance for me from almost every where. The room was clean and spotless when I arrived, and so were the bathroom and the rest of the house. She made me feel welcomed from day one, having always a smile and a nice word to give. I felt comfortable and respected, as Rosa never interfered in my time management or my affairs. She would invite me to join her in the living room or ther kitchen whenever she saw me wandering around, inviting me also for lunch or dinner if I came in while she was at the table. On the day of my departure, she gave me a ride to the grocery store across town where I wanted to bye some of their local food. I must say that I enjoyed my stay throughout, having left with a feeling that I gained a friend. I certainly hope to be able to come back and pay a visit again one day.
Rosa is friendly and smart, and the recently-renovated apartment is tastefully furnished and spotless clean. In my experience that deserves 4 stars!
Bus connections are within 2' to 10' walking distance and will quickly take you to the Red Line, Harvard Square or Kendall/MIT (to name but the main places of interest).
Minor disappointment: if you are a dedicated cook like myself, you should be aware that only light cooking is welcome.
This will be the second time I have stayed with Rosa and was so happy I chose to do so, again. The room and bed were very comfortable and I felt at home. I also appreciated Rosa's hospitality and her compassion for me during a family emergency that brought me back to my hometown of Somerville.
We stayed at Rosa's apartment for 8 nights, she's a great host and she gave us useful information every time we asked.
The apartment is very clean and confortable, I would definitely recommend it.
