The best thing about this apartment is the location! Easy walk to MIT or Harvard, and the T stop at Central Square is only a few blocks away. There's a lot to do in the neighborhood--coffee shops, bars, restaurants, etc.--usually lots of people around and I never felt unsafe (a concern when you're staying by yourself). Lisa provided detailed instructions, and everything was as indicated in the instruction packet. I didn't need to contact her for anything after I arrived, but she promptly responded to my inquiries when I had a few questions before I booked the apartment.
A few of the reviews mentioned that the building can be noisy. I wasn't really worried about that since I'm not a particularly light sleeper, but it is definitely true. It's not that the other tenants were having parties or being particularly loud--it's just that the apartment is on the ground floor right by the main entrance to the building, so you hear people coming in/leaving, walking around upstairs, etc.. And for whatever reason, it was really loud when the people next door (or above?) would turn on the water in the bathroom. It's been a while since I've lived in an apartment, so if you're more used to this stuff, or are a heavy sleeper, you probably won't have any problems. Everything else was great. But if you're a light sleeper (or even a medium one), this may not be the place for you.
Very nice place and clean. Good location in Cambridge, MA.
There was a problem/misunderstanding with the date of departure but Lisa fixed it quickly.
La nostra permanenza nell'appartamento di Lisa e' stata molto piacevole. La descrizione sul sito corrisponde perfettamente alla realtà'. La zone dove si trova l'appartamento e' molto carina ed e' localizzata vicino a Central, ben fornita di negozi, caffe' e ristoranti.
Lisa e' stata molto gentile e disponibile con noi. Purtroppo durante la nostra permanenza c'e' stato un problema con i riscaldamenti,ma Lisa e' stata molto gentile e disponibilissima nell'aiutarci. Poche ore dopo averle comunicato il problema era già' tutto risolto. Il mio giudizio e' molto positivo, sia sulla casa che sulla padrona.
Lisa's apartment was just what we were looking for: a comfortable space in just the right location. Everything was neat and tidy, and the layout and design of the apartment felt like a real home. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer—the space certainly lends itself to a longer stay. Next time!
Please was great and listing page was accurate. In fact, I think it UNDER sells the awesome area, but that might just be because we had some friends that really made it a special visit. So fun.
Only issue was an initial miscommunication with booking which we were able to resolve with the help of an Airbnb support person.
Other than that this was a truly wonderful stay and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Will definitely consider staying again next time we head to Cambridge!
Thanks for the nice review.
The lock was changed last week.
Best wishes, Lisa
Clean, comfortable, close to Central Square T. Walkable and safe. We talked to Lisa on the phone, via text, and by e-mail - very accessible. Directions and house rules were straightforward and easy to understand. It was GREAT to have access to the kitchen so we could fix a simple breakfast and do a little laundry. We would stay here again!
Thanks Sarah, happy to have you.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great apartment with everything you need for a short or long stay. Good location, great walk to everywhere.
Lisa is a top host. Very friendly and swiftly responding to any request. The apartment was fine.
This studio apartment accurately described the location, and the rooms were clean and tidy upon my arrival. The location was only minutes from Mass Ave and made it very easy to get around. However the only downside was the noise of other tenants entering and leaving the apartment. Given that this unit is on the ground floor and right near the building entrance, you can basically hear every other tenant entering or leaving the building at all hours. There was no street noise from cars but the tenant noise made avoiding early morning wake ups a difficulty.
Lisa had to cancel prior to her stay due to health/traffic issues and communicated this to us via text/phone calls. Her understanding w/ us 'bungling' the refund was appreciated as it was our 1st time doing this. We hope she can stay with us in the future so we can swap Nursing stories!
It was a pleasure to have Lisa and her research assistant at the house. They were interesting to chat with, and pleasant on every level. I'd have them back at the house any time!
Lisa was fun and I recommend her as a guest.
Lisa was such an interesting, fun and lovely guest. As a host as well, she knows the 'view' from both sides, but her sincere, warm and sweet demeanor and personality are so natural and giving, its easy for her to be comfortable in any setting and enjoy the moment. I certainly was delighted she came to stay as she provided interesting conversation and perspectives when there was time to visit and was always respectful, clean and enjoyable to be around on any particular day. I'd welcome her back anytime, and in fact, told her so when she departed...!! Truly a universal citizen and classy woman
Thank you Alan!
Let me know when you are ready to take me on as my PR agent.
From one Lisa to another, she was a fabulous guest!

We loved having Lisa and her associate Naomi. Not only were they great guests, they were fascinating to talk to. Our best wishes on their exciting project. I hope they will return.
Lisa was a great guest! She left things in good order and even washed her own dishes. Thanks!
