Thanks so much Ari and Anna. Fantastic location. Cosy, safe, clean. Very helpful and friendly. Great to be able to make my cup of tea in the morning! See you next time.

Great place to stay! Walking distance to subway and Harvard. Great hospitality! We chose this place instead of a hotel so we would have access to kitchen and washer/dryer and it was also much cheaper than a hotel. Hosts are very kind and open with their home!

This was my first Airbnb experience and let me tell you, Ari & Anna's place is AWESOME! They were very kind and considerate (and cool) people, making my mom and I feel right at home. They had maybe one party which ended by 9:30 pm. To be honest we didn't see much of them since they are busy and aren't home often, but I do wish I had time to know them better...Thank you both so much for a wonderful stay, will book again when I drop by! For Harvard students: this is a godsend! 20-minute walk to Harvard Yard, 10 minute walk to Northeastern building and 5-minute walk to star market! There's even Chinese food right around Somerville Ave :P All in all it was a great experience and I will highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Cambridge/Somerville area. P.S. it comes with a back porch (we are kindly encouraged to use the kitchen and back porch, I once had an hour-long chat there with Anna about everything from real estate in Somerville to furry winter boots to starting grad school), a steep one-way uphill from Somerville Ave, and a cat. Oh and no need to bring bathing towels, their towels are large, soft and great to use!

Response from Ari &:
Thanks Amy! Just to clarify the second to last sentence: we do not have a cat - there are a few in the neighborhood that sometimes come and explore the back yard / porch area, but never come inside. :)

Ari and Anna are very friendly. The house is beautiful (a lot of pictures on the wall), the bedroom is comfortable. I am really satisfied with this accommodation and if next time I came to Boston I will consider to live in here again.

We had a wonderful time staying at Ari & Anna's. The check in was flexible and the room was cozy. It's a lovely home not far from the Red Line which made getting to our plans over the weekend very easy. I would absolutely stay again and encourage you to do the same!
