Simple clean no-frills basement-based two bedroom place with its own entrance. Full size kitchen with dining table. Equipped with basic furniture (as shown in pictures). No separate living or dining areas. Some sound from foot traffic from first floor during day time. Back-yard and porch are available for your use. All essentials are provided for. Arlington is very close to Boston -- reach MIT/Harvard/Tufts in less than 20 minutes. Welcome to Boston!

The space
Pictures provide a view of the whole space including smaller windows. Please go through them to get to know what you are booking.

You get a full size kitchen, two sufficiently large bedrooms and a bathroom. There are no separate dining or living areas.

There is basic cable (no premium channels) TV in one of the bedrooms and Wifi based internet.

Parking is in tandem in one of the two driveways and shared with us. We will have to coordinate our schedules somewhat. We have had no issues in the past doing it. Parking on street is alright as well except overnight from 1am to 6am. You can also park overnigh, but once in a while the town can give the ticket. For some reason, if there is no parking in the driveway, you can park on the street and we will cover any ticket you might receive.

Other things to note
Please do note that we use the floor above as our office in day time and hence you may hear some foot traffic if you are among those who would be staying home during day time.

The space is marked as "entire place" because the primary space is setup for our guests only and is the best fitting options out of three Airbnb options: Entire Place, Private Room, and Shared Room.

The space is not suitable for parties or gatherings as noise can easily travel through the wooden structures of the house.

The space is ideal for two adults and maybe two additional young ones. But for four adults, it will be a stretch. Please book the place for four only if you are one of those accommodating ones. The place is not suitable for children as the noise disrupts other residents and our home office on the floor above.

In the winter time you can hear the sound of heating appliance (which are nearby). They mostly kick off around 6:30am as we do control the schedule. However, on colder days they can kick off more often. So caution for the people with sensitive hearing.

Long term guests (2 week+) will need to arrange their own supplies (such as tissue paper, salt and sugar) once the initial set runs out.

You may see some sink or fruit flies in the space. They are harmless to people. We have tried our hard, but it has proven difficult to get rid of them. If you have a longer stay with us, we will provide a periodic vacuum service to clean these flies.

If you have a late check in and you cannot check in due to our fault, please go ahead and get a hotel for that night and we will cover a charge up to $200 for one night only.

If you are booking for 1 or 2 days, please be aware that our prices may appear high. Our rationale behind this is: if market allows and the guest is willing to pay much higher for a shorter stay, we should enable this option.

Please note we only have air conditioner in the kitchen; bedroom only have fans; windows are not big enough to let window based air conditioners.

Lastly, for any lost and found, firstly we cannot take any responsibility. If we do find the lost item, we can ship them for a charge of $50 + any shipping charge for any mail based delivery. Please understand, it takes a considerable amount of time to retrieve and ship the item back.

Arlington, Massachusetts, United States

East Arlington is among the greatest neighborhoods around Boston. It is not far from the city (Tufts is a mile away, Harvard Sq is about 3 miles), but at the same time, it is also away from the busy life of the city. The roads are wider and all the houses have garages or driveways, so the town feels much more open and breathable.

I think hosting is a total blast. It gives me joy to create a place to make my guests feel comfortable. I consider all of my guests my extended family. All of you are welcome. I love everything about real estate. My more recent passion is to learn about colors and interior design.
