Jared’s place was great, perfect for what I needed. Recommend staying there, easy access to everything and in a good location.

Jared was an outstanding host and this private room was a good option for my few days visiting Cambridge. I had the larger of the two guest rooms, which are separated by a shared living room and full bath, all of which were spotless. The two flights of stairs are characteristically New England–steep, so make sure you’re okay with this. The keyless entry made check-in a breeze. About a 10-minute walk to Harvard Yard and 15 to Harvard Square. Overall a great stay!

Jared's place is a great homebase for exploring the city. The room is as described – light filled with some great plants all around. Great places to eat are within walking distance and it's easy to grab public transit or a Lyft. Jared is kind and welcoming and made the whole process easy.

Jared is a great host. The place was clean and comfortable. He made sure we had what we needed before we even had to ask. The location is perfect. Walking distance to Harvard and local coffee shops and food places. Easy access to the freeway as well.

Jared is a very nice host! He helped us with carrying all the luggages (plenty and quite heavy) upstairs and downstairs. The room was really clean, so were the towels he prepared for us. It's also spacious, and the sofa outside the room was nice. The location is not far away from the station, and there are a lot to explore in Harvard Square. The book store and the ramen beside it are highly recommended.
