Prime location between Harvard/Porter sq. King bed, own bathroom, offering good value for two people. Off street family home, quiet yet yards away from all the action. The room is mostly taken up by the bed. There is ample cupboard and drawer space for a short stay,
and a wall mounted TV with cable.

The space

The house is eclectic, furnished with vintage furniture, and maybe a bit of a fixer upper by American standards but most people love it. The shower head is new but the bathtub is old, and has a few hard water stains by the tap. The room is not pitch black in the mornings, so some guests may like to bring an eye mask. I would also add that this is not a pristine secluded guest room but rather a comfortable rickety little room amidst a family home, would suit young informal people not too worried about absolute privacy. Very occasionally I get a complaint of noise or some dust, please be specific in your review otherwise I won't know how to address the complaint.

Guest access

The garden and its seating area, light use of the kitchen and dining area.

Interaction with guests

As little or as much as I sense you like.

Other things to note

I rent out one other room on airbnb, on the floor below, and I have a 17 year old son, so while the household is not noisy there will be the sound of life.

Serena has been a great host being nice and available for any requests ! She made sure our stay was enjoyable at all times. Besides, she made us a tasty breakfast with wafles and strawberries. The room was clean, larger and nice than it looked on the pictures, it was connected to the bathroom and included towels. With respect to the location, her place is located at walking distance from Harvard and Cambridge village. Well connected to transportation network as well. Porter Square is the closest subway at 5min walk. It will take you 20 min to get to Downtown Boston. Thanks Serena, I will definitely come by next time !

Everything was perfect! Clear communication prior arrival, Serene was very responsive. Good location, easy to find, only 15 minute walk to Harvard campus. Also, close to many shops and market. The room & bathroom were clean, bed was extremely comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

Accurate info from Serena - nice quiet street, but just off Mass Ave, big comfy bed, and yes, you'll want an eye mask if you want to sleep in. :) Enjoy!

Serena's place is in a nice neighborhood and has easy access to Harvard and the downtown area. The house itself is beautiful.

This room is Serena's home was as pictured; the bed was comfortable and the en suite bathroom was especially nice! The location is extremely convenient to Harvard - I walked there and even downtown to Back Bay (though if it's not a nice day, I'd recommend the train and/or bus - it's definitely quicker). It was also close to several good restaurants/pubs as well as Starbucks!

Serena's place is in a perfect location between Harvard and Lesley University - its about a 7-10 minute walk from Harvard and less than that to Lesley. Its also less than a block away from great restaurants and bars. The location could not be more perfect. The house itself is amazing - filled with artwork and its just a beautiful space. The room has a very comfy bed, clean, and access to cable TV (if you want it), and a private bathroom. Cant recommend highly enough and would definitely stay here again.
