Isabel's place is perfect for people who are not very particular about staying in downtown. It is in a nice neighbourhood with easy accessibility that makes commute to the city easy and the stay quiet and laid back. Antoine's Pastry Shop close by, was a bonus for me. I loved picking up my breakfast from there and walking till the bus station every morning. Isabel communicates proactively and is very helpful and friendly, offers to help - making your stay all the more comfortable.

This place had everything one would need and then some. The room was exactly as pictured and offered many little amenities you wouldn't find in most rented rooms. It was absolutely perfect for a mother and teenage daughter who never even wanted to leave the room. Isabel and her family were very accommodating and quiet house mates. The second room was also an airbnb guest which we never came in contact with, so sharing a bathroom was no problem. The neighborhood was quite lovely and felt safe enough to walk around alone. Parking was in front of the house and never presented a problem. I enjoyed the comforts of a home in a quaint local environment, close to any city, shopping or venue. I will definitely consider staying again as I bring my daughter to and from school many times throughout the year. I should have considered this years ago, since hotels seem to sell out fast and are overpriced during the school year. I can't thank Isabel enough for allowing us into her home and making it a great affordable stay for us. Thank, ~Irina

Very convenient to Boston and Cambridge. Isabel's in-room "extras" were so appreciated. The room is comfortable, organized and has more than what you'd expect. She was accessible and responsive to inquiries. Quiet, safe neighborhood.

The room was very cute, beds were comfy and Isabel made herself available with any questions that we had. Basic TV channels, but that was fine for us since we were only there to sleep anyways.

We had a great stay! Isabelle and her family live in a second-floor apartment. The room that we stayed in had two comfortable single beds and was stocked with everything one could possibly need. There is a mini fridge, microwave, TV set ( local channels and USB connection), a sofa, desk, and a couple of straight-back chairs. The fridge was stocked with water and pantry shelf in the room held individual serving boxes of cereal, coffee and a coffee maker, and assortment of cups, tumblers, and even a couple of wine glasses. During some of the hottest days of summer the window air conditioner kept the room nice and cool. On the rental side of the apartment is another, smaller room with a larger bed that is also available on Airbnb. These two rooms share a bathroom (with a great shower) that the family avoids, at least when the rooms are rented. The kitchen, which Isabel suggested was available to us, was also on this side of apartment. Except for using the kitchen, the family quarters were on the opposite side of apartment, (separated by staircase). This home is obviously filled with love and compassion. The kids were all comfortable with house guests, and made us feel like guests, and not like the strangers we were when we arrived. The location is great, just a few minutes from the highway, across the street from a park and with plenty of on street parking. We would definitely stay with Isabel and her family again. Saying all this, I must caution, that this is an older home and a real family, living the way my family and many families do. It is not fancy. It is comfortable and functional and nicely kept, but is probably not for folks who prefer upscale hotels.
