Lara went above and beyond to make my one month stay wonderful. I was new to the area, and she was extremely helpful and thoroughly understanding with my moving arrangements. On the day I arrived, she took the time to walk with me (in the freezing cold, nevertheless) to show me how to get to the T and shops in Davis Square.
Lara exemplified kindness, warmth, and generosity in our daily interactions. She is a lovely person who maintains a clean apartment, and the room that I stayed in is accurately portrayed by the pictures seen here (very sunny, neat, spacious plus with a private entrance). The place is in a very strategic location, as noted by all the previous reviewers, and allowed for extremely easy commutes.
Sharing a home with Lara was an enjoyable experience that I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a peaceful place in Somerville. Thank you, Lara - you were fantastic, and truly a Superhost!
Lara is a wonderful host. The room is in a beautiful blue house just a few minute's walk from the Davis Square metro. The commute to Boston is very easy- I went into town every day- and the location in Somerville, close to the Tufts campus is ideal since it is very peaceful and safe but also very vibrant with lots of fun things to do. Lara is a lovely person- she is very kind, patient and accommodating and is always eager to help you or have an interesting conversation. She is full of stories + wisdom as well as practical advice on life in Somerville/Boston. Even though I stayed during the freezing winter I was always warm and comfortable in the house I felt like family from the beginning and was sad when I reached the end of my stay. I had a lovely time and would recommend this room to anyone.
What a sweet review Naz- I appreciate the lovely description of your experience staying in my apt. I wish you the very best that Life has to offer.
I stayed with Lara for 3 months. Everything worked out very well. The back room where I stayed was nice and warm during the winter. The house was fairly clean and Lara was very accommodating to anything that I needed. Lara herself is extremely hospitable and friendly. I had a car with me and was able to park in the drive. Coordinating moving cars with the other car owners turned out not to be a problem. Lara kept everything organized with any other guests that were staying, making sure that everyone was respectful and that things worked out smoothly. And of course you can't beat the location of this place. Only a 3-4 minute walk to the T through a nice pathway. Davis Square has so many great food options and taking the Red line into Boston was very convenient! The apartment is in a prime location. Overall my stay was great and I would recommend it.
Lara was very friendly and kind. She made me feel very welcome during my stay there. The room was nice and clean to stay. Good WiFi connection. The place is located within 5 minute walk from the subway station (the red line) which is a great. Safe neighborhood (Davis Square) with lots of shops and restaurants.
Great location and host! Highly recommend.
This was my first airbnb experience. Lara made me feel at home, she is a wonderful host. The neighbor was very convinient, just walk distance to subway station and two stops from harvard square. I will defenetively come back.
Lara was so sweet, kind and friendly host. She kindly told me about sightseeing around there. The room clean and pretty. The house is located in a quiet and safe area so I could be relaxed and slept very well. And moreover it was close to downtown so it was easy to reach there by subway.
I'm so gland that Lara's place was my first Airbnb experience.
Thank you Lara!
This was my first Airbnb experience and it gets an A+. Lara was the perfect host. The room is exactly as in photos,the apartment is spotless and so close to the subway! Perfect for anyone wanting to do some sightseeing or needing to get around by public transportation. Lara was kind, friendly and very helpful. Her warmth and hospitality definately made my trip all the more enjoyable. The room is very quiet and not on a busy street so you can get a great nights sleep. Restaurants, cafes, bars are close by but you feel removed from the "hustle and bustle" because of the quiet location of the apartment. I look forward to my next trip to Boston so I can stay again!
Thanks Pamela for such a nice review - I enjoyed hosting you !!
This was my second stay at Lara's home. Just as good as the first. Will book again. Really love the privacy of the room, cleanliness of the house and location is just perfect.
I couldn't be happier with my first Airbnb experience!
Lara was great, kind, caring, and a very sweet person to have a conversation with.
I can't say enough about how she helped me in many ways during my stay. I was totally new to Boston (just moved) so she kindly walked with me and showed me the neighborhood and cafes and restaurants the first night I checked in, and even took the time to help me find a place for living. she really made me feel at home, I was literally so lucky to have Lara as my host.
The room was cozy and clean exactly as seen in the pictures. The location couldn't be better, in a beautiful, safe neighborhood 5 minutes to Davis square and T.
Thank you so much dear Lara
