The space

Lovely private bedroom in shared residential condo in amazing location: Short walk to Harvard Campus (6 mins to H Divinity School, 12 mins to H Law School, 14 mins to Harvard Yard). Minutes to cool Somerville/Cambridge restaurants, delis and hangouts.

This private room with a luxury queen bed is in a freshly renovated and furnished apartment with every thing you need, including a fully fitted kitchen and fast wifi. This is a shared apartment and you will be sharing the bathroom and kitchen with another guest. Both are professionally cleaned before and after every guest. There is an Amazon Echo with Spotify (so any song you like) and a smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime TV and Chromecast if you would prefer to stream from your phone or tablet. There is a washer and dryer located in basement if you need it.

We live in the apartment above and so just shout out if you need anything.

This listing is for one room. If you would like to book the whole apartment please see our other listing.

This apartment has such a great location. We are on the border of Cambridge and Somerville. It is a short walk to the Harvard Campus (Harvard Divinity School 6 mins, Harvard Law School 12 mins, Harvard Yard 14 mins).

We're a few minutes walk to great local restaurants, cafes and delis: Dali and Kirkland Tap and Trotter, Savenor's Deli, Biscuit cafe, Petsi's Pies and the Wine and Cheese Cask.

There are loads of great new places popping up around us, like the Brooklyn Boulders climbing gym, indoor farmers' market Something GUD, and the Aeronaut Brewing Co and more. Star Market is 2 mins walk and Whole Foods is 10 minutes walk.

Convenient transport: The red line Harvard T Station is easily walkable in 15 minutes (a lovely walk through Harvard Yard) as is Porter Square and Inman square for commuter rail and bus services respectively. You can get into the center of town easily by Uber/Lyft for $12.

Guest access

CHECKING IN

There is a keypad on the front door and we will send you a code when the reservation is confirmed.

PARKING

You will have your own entrance and if you have a car a parking pass for 2 days of street parking if needed.

PLEASE CHECK PARKING SIGNS: there is a disabled parking space near us. There is also street cleaning on Wed/Thurs on alternate weeks for alternate sides of the road. Please check signs carefully to avoid getting large fines.

WINTER PARKING:
When it snows street parking is limited and if you find a space you might have to dig your car out in the morning or dig out a space in the evening to put your car back in. This is one of the most annoying things about winter in Boston but thankfully it is only a problem on some days and generally only between Jan and March.

**** IF THERE IS A WEATHER SUCH AS A SNOW EMERGENCY ******

Usually you can park on our side of the street (even numbers), although there will be very few spaces available. It is possible, all street parking will be suspended by the city and as such we will not be able to offer parking for you. I hope you understand.

Interaction with guests

CHECKING IN

We have a smart lock so you will not need a key to get into the apartment during your stay. When you reserve you will receive an email with instructions on how to use the lock (August Smart Lock) or alternatively we can send you an SMS message with a link. You basically need to download the free August Smart Lock app and then sign in to your airbnb account from within the app and that is it! You can use your cellphone to key in a code and gain access at any time during your stay.

USING THE AUGUST SMART LOCK

1. Please download the August Smart Lock app from the Apple App Store or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Play Store.
2. Set up a free account
3. Integrate you airbnb account from within the August app

- Instructions for iO(URL HIDDEN)

4. How to use The August Smart Lock for your upcoming reservation
We have authorized August to manage guest access. You will automatically have access to our home for the period of your stay from within the app. If not, then of course please let us know!

5. There are additional guests in my reservation. Will they be able to use the August Smart Lock too?

Only you (the primary Airbnb guest) receives automatic access. You will have to send your guests' phone numbers to us, so we can grant access to your additional guests which we are of course happy to do!

6. Does it work if I don't have a US phone?

Yes! As long as you have an iPhone or Android phone and are in close proximity of the front door you can use the app to gain access.

Beautiful place, great location and hosts were attentive and responsive in their communication. Highly recommend this place, located a short ride away from Harvard square.

The neighbourhood felt very safe as Boston is generally safe in most areas. The hosts were very accommodating and helped with any issues that arose with very prompt responses. The listing was true to its description: clean and spacious. The living room with complimentary netflix streaming along with the kitchen and many kitchen appliances were an added bonus! An overall, excellent stay in Boston!

I really enjoyed my stay here, such a calm, pleasant, well thought through experience. I only stayed one night getting in late and leaving early, but it was super easy and slept well! I hope to be back.

We had a great experience! The room and apartment over all was very comfy, clean and on a quiet street. The house is close to Harvard campus, very walkable and convenient. A great value, I'd certainly stay there again.

Although we stayed only for one night, it was an enjoyable stay. The apartment was very nice and clean; check-in and check-out was breezy, the apartment is located on a quiet street, but close to both Harvard and the lively Sumerville.
