Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Quiet. Convenient. Clean. Tidy. Walk everywhere (there's a Boston/Cambridge bike sharing HUBWAY station nearby where you can rent bikes for a hour or a day). Parking Permit is available for 5- day-or-less guests. If you are staying longer than 5 days it is better not to have a car since the City of Cambridge regulates long-term non-resident parking. It's a 10-minute walk to Harvard Yard. Even closer to the subway/Red Line. Get everywhere quick. Christine is the artist; Matthew the engineer.

Christines place is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I had such a great time staying with her and her family. Very accommodating, and everybody is so nice. Thank you so much for having me!

A comfortable room and very welcoming hosts in a quiet part of Cambridge, within reasonable walking distance of Boston's main metro line. I don't have anything bad to say about this place.

Can't recommend this place highly enough. The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. It had an armchair to read in and a desk to work at (and the wifi worked well). The shared bathroom was also clean and right next to the room. Christine and Matt were lovely hosts: welcoming …

Christine is a generous and welcoming host. She accommodated every need (even foreseeing some that I had not considered) and was flexible with my arrival time when my flight was unavoidably delayed. The house is typical of the area, in a perfect spot within walking distance of Ha…
