I'm a professional tech support geek, but I sure like to hear live music and go dancing.

Hi ! This was my first experience with AirBnB. Based on this I will surely be back for more. Bernadette and her brother Chris were delightful hosts. Warm, open, generous with time and efforts, and also had in my judgement an informed view of life that enhanced my stay as well as my own awarenesses.
The space was exactly as offered. Their home was meticulously clean. I was quickly made to feel totally at home. When Chris handed me the key to their home I realized I was totally free to use the portion of their home that was made available to me as I pleased.
I had no problem finding parking close to their apartment the two times I needed to park. The walk to the bus stop was about 10 or 15 minutes. But the early morning air was so enjoyable I ended up just walking all the way to the Hynes Convention Center where I was attending a conference. I think that took about 45-50 minutes.
My arrangements were made literally at the last minute so this truly was a Last Minute Couch for me.
I am very grateful they were able to accommodate me.
I stayed with Bernadette & Chris for almost a week. The house is really clean and well kept, towels were lovely and even sheets were provided! The space is quite isolated from the rest of the house - I got sole usage of the whole area where the couch was located, so it felt really private as there's a curtain going over the doorway. I did have a little bit of trouble with the heating noise the first night, but after that I guess I got used to it, and I didn't mind at all.
The location is perfect - nice and safe area, many bars/restaurants around, bike stop just 5 mins walk away and about 10 mins walk from the red T (Kendall stop)
I would definitely stay with them again!
My stay with Bernadette and Chris was great! The sofa was comfortable, the curtain made the living room feel like a private room, and I had a good time talking to them about dancing, computer science and general topics, so I'd love to stay with them again. And they are indeed last minute saviors, thanks for that!
The room was great, and it is almost private room, because of a curtain. The condo is well-groomed and very nice. Towels and linens are clean and new. Bernadette and her brother are very friendly. Only one a bit challenging thing is radiator noise, which is frankly mentioned by Bernadette in the description here (in house rules section), I hope this will be improved. On the whole, I highly recommend this room.
Had a very pleasant stay. They put up a curtain so it's more like a private room. Couch was very comfortable and I slept well.
I stayed with Bernadette and her brother Chris for a week while apartment-hunting in Boston. Both Bernadette and Chris were very friendly and engaging hosts; they were happy to talk, but completely respected my privacy when I sought to be alone. The space itself is very nice; the room connects to the kitchen but is separated by a curtain for complete privacy. The couch is comfortable, I only had to squeeze slightly (at 6'2") and I fell asleep easily with no problems.
The only SLIGHT issue I ran into (which I believe was in the process of being corrected) was that the steam heating system was loud - I'm a light sleeper, and I got woken up by it a few times while staying. However, this would normally only be an issue in the winter, and (I believe that) Bernadette was looking into getting this fixed when I was leaving, so it may not even be an issue for your stay!
All in all I greatly enjoyed my stay with Bernadette and would definitely stay with her again if given the chance.
I had an interview at MIT Sloan School so I need a place overnight. I was lucky because Bernadette was not home and I got to sleep in her room, it was very comfortable. Bernadette's brother met me and was very nice. The coach was very nice too, I actually was saying up late preparing for my interview and fell asleep on it for a few hours, so it must be good then. I recommend this place. 15 minutes walk from subways station and 15 minutes from MIT Sloan. Also. 10 minutes from a really nice Seafood restaurant (Legal Seafoods Kendall Sq.).
Bernadette was friendly and nice. She even offered to fetch me from the train station. She recommended nice eating areas around the area and even offered to show me the way to the Metro station. The place is clean and the couch is comfortable to sleep in. Bernadette even set up a curtain to give me more privacy. (email hidden).
Bernadette is the best host around AirBnB at the Cambridge area, she and her brother Chris will make you feel at home, the neighborhood is quiet and safe, there is a small sound at the room (something related with the water heater that is next to the room) but its a few minutes and later its gone. I spend 4 days at Boston for the Joomla World Conference at Harvard and met to Bernadette was a great experience, at the time that i leave she even took me to a Fedex location in order to send a TV that i won in a contest after it she drive for me and leave me at the train station, definitely she is the best
Bernadette was always smiling and kind every time I saw her. What a pleasant guest to have visit. Highly recommended!
Bernadette was very pleasant, easygoing, and has excellent communication skills. I strongly recommend her, and I look forward to hosting her again.
Bernadette and her guests were wonderful. Clean, communicative, independent and responsible. We would have her again any time.
I've known Bernadette for a few years now, she (email hidden) 2 stepping dance in the metro Boston area. She has proven herself to be kind, caring, and considerate as a member of our dance community. Bernadette is also highly responsible and a trustworthy women. From my observations of Bernadette from how she interacts with people she’s just met to friends she’s had for years.. I think anyone that would host her, would benefit greatly in getting to know her. As an active air bnb host I woudl recommend Bernadette as an air bnb guest.
