We enjoyed our stay, the place is beautiful and so is the area. It was an easy walk to the the subway and was a safe area to explore. The apartment was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed! Bill was an excellent host, making sure we had what we needed.

Bill's place in Somerville MA, which is basically Cambridge, is one of (if not the nicest) place we've ever stayed. From the roominess, to the immaculately clean, awesomely decorated space to the thoughtfulness of having two luggage racks and a diffuser for the hair dryer (which I've never had before) to the two ginormous flat screens, our only regret was not spending more time there since we were out and about so much. But that part is great too since Bill's place is close to transportation to Boston. Bill also gave great instructions and made sure we didn't have any unanswered questions. What more could you ask for? Great place for a trip to Boston!!
