Not the experience we were hoping for. Be prepared to have little contact (outside of the app) for any needs. Be prepared to not have bottled water. Be prepared to not have parking accessible at all. Not "difficult" parking...non-existent parking, so be prepared to pay that additional cost for a garage when you are driving to stay in this neighborhood. No warmth or personal hospitality. Really hard to wrap my head around their "super host" status. I was so disappointed and have experienced super hosts that were actually that...this is NOT one of them.

Response from Juan Carlos:
Monica, we're sorry your stay did not meet your expectations. It's really important to us that our guests have a great experience, and we are very careful to make detailed information available in the listing so that guests are aware of what to expect as far as the size of the apartment, parking, interaction with hosts, check-in procedures, and other details, before they book. Unfortunately, it seems that some of your expectations were out of the ordinary when compared with the many other guests we have hosted.

This is a well-located and well-maintained unit and we enjoyed our two week stay in late September. The posting on airbnb's web site is accurate and the spacious deck and yard were real pluses. It was a 15 minute walk to Central Square and a slightly longer walk to Harvard Square. It is conveniently situated near While Foods, Trader Joe, and Rite Aid. The wifi was uneven, which made it less ideal for business travelers, we were able to use wifi connections at Harvard, where we were working during the days. Parking is also tricky, as the owner explains, but we did not have a car so this was not a problem during our visit. Guests should be aware that there is another short term rental above this unit which is larger, advertised as accommodating up to six guests. During our stay, there were several groups, and quite a bit of noise, sometimes late at night.

Nice spot. Back yard and deck really nice to have. Convenient to Harvard and MIT, and an easy trip into the city. Hosts were very helpful, but unobtrusive (as I hope we were). Parking is definitely an issue, as stated in the description. That doesn't just mean that the spaces are scarce; even if there is a space available on the street, it's only available to permitted residents. Would definitely stay again.

The place was great, very clean, very well organized, extra towels, etc, all things were great, we enjoyed sitting outside on the patio having wine and cheese (after my wife had a very nice and short walk to Whole Foods). Nice walk to MIT. Amy was extremely prompt and responsive. Thank you.

My travel is for business purposes and family vacations. For business trips I usually work long hours and try to check out good local restaurants. We enjoy a outdoorsy and active life style with our friends and family. Favorite activities include backpacking, leisure bike rides, and runs.
