Wonderfully comfortable, homey place in a charming, quiet neighbourhood. Nadine and Berne met us at the door and in a friendly, efficient way, got us settled in quickly. Experienced and sensitive hosts, they have anticipated every possible need with a well-supplied kitchenette, bathroom articles, Boston brochures and info sheets. Our hosts were available to aid in any other way but were never intrusive. A 10 minute walk to public transport through lovely Harvard campus and much closer to groceries and good restaurants. Great place to which we'd happily return. Many thanks Nadine and Bernd!

This was our first experience with airbnb and it worked very well for us. The directions we received for finding their home were most helpful. Nadine and Bernd were there to welcome us, show us around, provide useful information and answer any questions. The location for us was excellent-a quiet neighborhood, interesting old houses, a 10-15 minute walk through Harvard Square to the T station. Restaurants and a grocery store were readily accessible.

Nadine and Bernd were very welcoming and available (without of course being intrusive!). The house is incredibly well located (walking distance of 5 minutes to harvard's campus!). The room is very big, and you basically have a whole floor to yourself (including bathroom and little kitchen). They also speak french, which was a plus for us. The neighborhood is stunningly beautiful, calm, with many trees. You will sleep well there, and have your own private space to read, think, and prepare yourself for whatever you have to do at harvard ;-)

We had a great time at Nadine's and Bernd place. The place is old, but clean. The hosts are very kind and they brought us a toaster and an extra-bed for our convenience. We appreciated the quiet and nice neighbourhood, even if it was a little far (about 15-20 minutes walk) from metro station.
