Lara is a very warm and friendly host who's always happy to tchat. Her place is perfectly situated, safe, clean and quiet : just what I needed for this few days in Boston. Just what I needed !
Great place to stay and the private entrance is very convenient
Great location a few steps from Davis Sq.
Nice room with private access.
Lara and Simo are very kind and friendly.
Quiet and close as advertised: Lara's place is two quick metro stops away from Harvard Square. I think I enjoyed the only peace and quiet in the Greater Boston Area on the night the Red Sox won the World Series at Fenway for the first time in almost a century. (Overheard two blocks away: "WOO! I want to flip over a CAR!" Overheard chez Lara: absolutely nothing.)
The room is at the very front of the house, so the guest gets to use the front door as a private entrance and enjoys great light from the large windows. (There are shades, too, for those who like to sleep a little later.) Lara made sure an extra blanket and a space heater were available.
Lara is very warm and welcoming and clearly likes meeting new people and hearing their stories. She was also kind and flexible enough to store my bags for a few hours after check out. Thank you!
Lara was a great hostess. The house is very convenient for various parts of Cambridge and Somerville and she's very helpful both in helping you get settled into the room and giving you any advice about navigating the area. Would definitely recommend.
I had a great stay with Lara! Her place is cozy, clean, and convenient. And Lara herself is fun, warm, and so welcoming.
Lara is a wonderful and very caring host and her home very cozy, enjoy it!
Great experience. The house was clean and quiet and Lara is a very kind and hospitable host. The room was perfect and the private entrance was convenient. There was plenty of space to hang my clothes. An A/C unit if I needed it. The bed was comfortable and there were even fresh cut flowers on the side table.
The location is excellent and the area felt very safe. It is only a couple of blocks away from Davis Square which makes it super easy to hop on the train. There are also a bunch of good restaurants and bars in the area that are easy to walk to.
I would definitely stay here again and Lara is a superb host.
I stayed with Lara and her male roommate for 5 nights. I enjoyed my visit. Lara was a great host and went out of her way to ensure my comfort. The apartment is clean and peaceful. The location is central to the metro and restaurants.
It was a pleasure being Lara's guest. It was like she said: a great place on a safe, quiet side street, but yet close to restaurants and a Dave's Fresh Pasta, that has not just pasta, but a variety of other foods, including delicious and affordable made to order sandwiches, staples like milk and bread, as well as a decent wine and cheese selection.
There was a green corridor that I used everyday to get to the T - subway - and it was great and wonderfully relaxing to be able to walk through a green park for a few minutes at the start and end of every day.
I'd stay there again!
Response from Lara:
Glad you enjoyed your walk through the Bike Path - and its interesting that you describe it as a relaxing start and end to the day - You have opened my eyes to a new aspect of it and I will appreciate it even more now -
great guest, very friendly and clean
