I stayed at Svetlana's place for a month for business. The studio apartment was perfect for me - very convenient for my training and had all the basics that I required for a comfortable stay. Svetlana and her family were very warm and welcoming.

Everything is good here. The apartment is nice, clean, and large enough for one or two. Host is nice that she informs you everything you need during your stay. This place is also located near the bus stop and Moody street, so that you can conveniently hang around. If you are finding a place in Boston, I would recommend here! 혼자 머무르기 딱 좋은 곳입니다. 근처에 보도 10분 거리에 번화가가 있고, 보스턴 중심지로 집 앞에서 버스를 타고 편리하게 이동할 수 있습니다.

Everything was pretty good. The apartment is nice and clear but there were some things we didn't like about our stay. -the apartment is smaller than we expected -it's not a private balcony, it's a part of the stairs facing the neighbor house -no light on the stairs (it gets dark pretty early in the summer so we had to use Iphones) - there're some common doors in this apartment with the main house. They are close but you can hear everything pretty good - when we needed a laundry we couldn't reach Svetlana by phone - parking is not easy sometimes. when we came home later, had to park on the other street Anyway I would recommend staying at this apartment

Response from Svetlana:
I would like to address a few comments here as erroneous. The size of the apartment bedroom is 250 sq feet which is larger then a standard size of a bedroom. The bathroom is luxurious ( 100 sq feet). I was not aware that the light on the stairs stopped working and the tenant didn't notify me that there was a problem. The light on the stairs had since been fixed. As to the laundry, there was one weekend when I was out of the state and Verizon reception and couldn't receive the text messages. I contacted the tenant immediately upon my return to assist. The tenant could ring the bell of my house, where the laundry room is, there were people there. Parking is specified as being on the street. Any city dweller can relate that it may mean parking a block away. There has never been a situation when a tenant could not park.

While I was doing an internship at a company in Waltham I stayed over 4 month at Svetlana's place and the apartment really felt like home. It offers a bathroom incl. bathtub/shower, a queen size bed, enough storage with a spacious closet and dresser, a kitchenette including a fridge, microwave, heating plate and water boiler, access to fast wi-fi, and free use of the washing machine and dryer. Although the Boston area can be cold during the winter months, the room was constant warm and it always provided hot water. I also never had a problem to park my car (for free) on the street, which was a huge plus too. Svetlana was awesome too. Although the apartment is attached to the main house she made sure that I had always my privacy, and was always very helpful if I had any questions or requests. The location of the apartment is ideal. Within a 5 min walk I was in Waltham's Center which has - among other things - a nice coffee shop and a great Sushi restaurant. Also the very popular Moody Street is reachable within a 10 min walk where you find a vast variety of bars and restaurants, incl. Moody's Deli (recommended). Also Boston's City Center is reachable within only 25 minuets by car. I highly recommend this apartment and I would stay again at this place. Thank you, Svetlana, for your great hospitality!
