Within easy walking distance of both Harvard and Central Square, come relax in this quiet residential neighborhood 1 block from the Charles River. My apartment is clean and homey, with access to wifi, spacious kitchen, and a backyard.

The space

The bedroom is clean, quiet, simple, and comfortable. It has a closet, dresser, and desk. You can have free wifi, access to the kitchen, washer/ dryer, and backyard, which boasts a table and chairs for eating dinner, or a lounge chair for reading in the sun. I do not have A/C, but do have several fans which I find to be more than enough most of the time.

Guest access

You are welcome to use the living room, kitchen, bathroom (of course!) and backyard. Like any roommate situation, I only ask that you keep all spaces clean and tidy, and be respectful of noise.

Interaction with guests

I would be happy to help you get acclimated to Cambridge and Boston. I can provide guidance on getting around or places to eat and things to do. I am also perfectly happy if you just want to come and go as you please. A friendly hello and goodbye is all that's needed! Check-in/ out time is flexible.

Other things to note

There are stairs into my apartment, so please consider that if you have any mobility issues.

Melissa was a great host! She was very easy to reach and communicate with, and even had a really nice "welcome package" of some toiletries and a snack. Her place was exactly as depicted and super clean. The neighborhood was great, walking distance to Harvard University and two subway stations.

I had a wonderful experience with Melissa. The room was clean and comfortable. She provided me with thoughtful amenities and was always willing to answer questions and give directions. I highly recommend her!

Melissa was such an awesome host! She made me feel really welcome in addition to giving great tips about Boston as a local. The accommodations were exactly as expected. The room was clean and orderly; as was the bathroom. The location was fantastic too, right by the river and close to Harvard and public transportation. I had a great stay here!
