Dan and Limin were very accommodating. I stayed at their place for four months. They helped with any issues that arose (heating during the winter, air conditioning during the summer, providing bedding, etc.) Neighborhood is quiet and safe and a 7 minute walk to Porter square. Downsides are if you are staying longterm, there are no cooking facilities. Also, since the bedroom itself has a loft, you need to go down 2 flights of stairs to go to the bathroom/shower.
The hosts were on top of everything: internet, heating, furnishings, all of it. They were also incredibly friendly people. It was often very fun to have a conversation with them, and they were full of tips about the neighborhood, food, and a lot else. I have no real complaints. They're delightful people!
The apartment is right outside Porter Square, which means there are a lot of accessible restaurants and a T stop. It's a great location, since it's quiet while still being close enough to the rest of Cambridge that it was always easy to go somewhere or do something.
It was a pleasure spending time at this wonderful place. The apartment was even better than we thought it would be. Dan and Limin are a lovely couple and we were very fortunate to meet them and to spend time at their apartment. This past two months were a fresh start for us (as we just moved to the states), Dan and Limin helped to make it a good one.
Dan was a great host. Very friendly and accommodating, helpful when I had questions about Boston/Cambridge/Somerville or about moving to my permanent housing or anything else really. Both him and Limin made me feel welcome . The room was also great, spatious and comfortable and with a shared kitchen, sofa area, washing machine and dryer.
The house is in a great spot , 7 min walk from Porter square and a 10 min walk from Elm street and Davis square where you'll find lots of bars and restaurants.
he's friendly. the house is quiet good
This is a great location with easy access to Harvard and Davis square. The room was spacious and the kitchen and bath are right outside. Dan knows the area very well, and gave helpful suggestions for restaurants.
The place was as expected for the price. No frills and worked for me to just have a place to crash as I was only around for one night and was going to be busy. Great location and great price for someone looking to be in the area without having to pay a huge price for something you aren't going to use much. I would go back again. Dan was very nice and accommodating and willing to help at all times.
I had an absolutely outstanding stay with Dan and his wife. Dan was very welcoming, and helped me move into this very spacious room on the top floor of his house. The room was exactly as advertised, with a double bed on a mezzanine level, a refrigerator, and a microwave. There was ample space for me for the duration of my stay, and a small but well appointed balcony with pleasant views down the street. The house itself is very close to Porter Square, which is well connected to the rest of Cambridge and the greater Boston area by bus and the subway.
I would recommend the place to single travelers and couples in particular. The room offers both privacy and security (located at the end of a corridor on the third floor (second floor for European travelers)) in a leafy and upmarket part of town. Moreover, Dan and his wife are both incredibly friendly and flexible, and were always on hand to offer help and advice.
I commend this Airbnb to you without reservation!
This apartment was cozy and quiet with a big, comfortable bed for a couple. We also had a separate kitchen and bathroom. Location is good: 6-7 minutes walk from a metro station which is directly connected to downtown (5 stops). Everything was clean and Dan was very flexible with us. We could stay one more night and he could arrange our parking issue as well. Thanks again!
We had a great time in Boston. Next time we would definitly book that again.
We spent a great three nights here. It was a pleasure to meet Dan and his wife and spend time in their home. Like the description says, the house and room were lovely and very convenient for Cambridge and Boston!
