If Martha Stewart and Macgver had a child that would be me . Creative out of the box thinker ,hosting is a natural extension of my given talents.
I was very satisfied with the apartment. It was clean, well maintained and well stocked. The bed was very comfortable. As advertised, the location was excellent...close to Davis Square and also close to restaurants on Mass Ave. It was wonderful to have an off-street parking space since the Boston area received a lot of snow during my visit. I would definitely use this space again.
Emily 's apartment is great!! I strongly recommend it to you! I and my family came Boston and lived in Emily's apartment in Somerville where there are a lot of buses to Porter metro station or David metro station. It takes 15 minutes to Harvard University and 25 minutes to MIT by public traffic.
It is a convenient to buy grocery nearby a grocery supermarket and near banks,churches, restaurants and children's garden. Despite it is a hard winter and always snow,it is very warm in Emily's apartment and comfortable!
We aren't familiar to foreign food despite are willing to have a try once and twice. If you have the same experiences as me, you would like cooking meal for yourselves, there is a advanced kitchen with everything.
We have a good time in Emily's apartment and in Boston and Sommeville!
I stayed at this apartment for 3 weeks and would happily return! The place has everything you might need (including a parking spot) and is in a fantastic location. There is enough to do and see in Davis Square that it will never be boring, but you'll have peace and quiet once you get home...and it will only take you 5 minutes to get home. I found Emily to be a gracious and well-organized host and would gladly stay here or at one of her other properties again.
Really great facilities. We needed a space to help our Boston family cook the Thanksgiving meal (for 18!) so this fitted our needs perfectly. The bed (queen) was comfortable and as a lover of vintage houses, this one had all the charm without the non-functionality so often found in older houses.
Emily responded quickly and answered questions when posed from the initial reservation process through the arrival...and beyond. My husband has mobility issues so the fewer steps the better. To get to our apt. he only had to walk up the front steps and entrance hall which I think was a total of 8 steps. We will be back!
The apartment was well kept and comfortable. Emily was most concerned when there was a problem with one of the locks. I will stay there again.
A great apartment. House is in a nice location and the apartment is beautiful, spacious and very well furnished (kitchen is very nice, cookware is high end and not what you usually expect). Emily is a warm and wonderful host. Really felt like a home away from home
Very good accommodation
Everything went perfect. The house is cozy and really comfy. Super clean and the description matched what I got. Definitely recommend it.
Excellent business stay, yet I could certainly imagine booking with Emily again for a vacation stay as well. She is a superb hostess and immediately made me feel welcomed the moment I checked into this apartment.
Once I got the lay of the land, I found the location worked beautifully. Plus, because the house is on a hill and above Union Square, it proved to be a quiet spot with very little traffic noise.
The kitchen is terrific and the living room spacious and great for entertaining a small gathering of friends.
The light is excellent and the view is soothing, through large graceful trees. Then there is the deck with a grill...
Overall, I was grateful to have thought to look on AirBnB for something like this. The intensity of the work week got balanced beautifully by returning every night to this wonderful abode.
Cheers, Emily! Well done!
This was a great apartment to stay in. It was in a great neighbourhood - - with the best part being that was less than a 5 minute walk to Davis Station. 25 minute walk to Harvard. The place was clean and comfortable and was a perfect place for a couple to stay.

Emily was a wonderful and and very appreciative guest. It's a pleasure to have someone enjoy my flat as much as I do! She is welcome back anytime! She left it so clean the maid hardly had to do anything.
Emily is a lovely, warm hearted and caring person. I stayed several times in the flat before she advertised it on airBnB and always had a wonderful time.
In case you need some help with anything, she'll be able to find a solution promptly, and if you are looking for a particular place in the area, she's been living here for many years and surely will be able to help you find it.
I'm sure anybody will enjoy the stay, especially with that beautiful view.
