Airy, newly renovated apartment in a quiet, leafy neighborhood, centrally located but off the beaten track. The house is a 10-minute walk to vibrant, multicultural Central Square, a 20-minute walk to Harvard and MIT, and a 5-minute walk to the Charles River (great for runners). You're welcome to help yourself to breakfast in the morning—we provide coffee, tea, cereal, milk, and fruit.

The space

Private bedroom with a single bed, desk, and armchair on the second floor of a freshly renovated four-bedroom, two-bath apartment.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the kitchen/dining room, living room, and deck.

We provide breakfast fixings (coffee, tea, cereal, milk fruit)

Guests are welcome to use stove, microwave, fridge, etc.

Washer and dryer available upon request

Parking usually available upon request (please inquire ahead of time).

Interaction with guests

We're happy to chat or offer advice about the area, but we also try to be mindful of guests' desire for space and privacy, so we'll take our cue from you. And of course, please let us know if there is anything we can do to make you more comfortable—we're eager to make you happy, but we count on you to communicate what you need.

Other things to note

Dog: We have a small dog named Milo who's friendly & harmless but barks energetically whenever someone comes home. So if you're uncomfortable with dogs or allergic to them, we're not a good fit. On the other hand, if you like dogs and don't mind enthusiastic greetings, Milo is a sweetheart!

Noise: We often watch a little TV in the evening (from about 9 to 11), and we occasionally have friends over on Saturday or Sunday night. Otherwise, we're usually fairly quiet.

Housekeeping: You can count on a spotless bedroom and bathroom, but you might find common areas showing the clutter of daily life.

Lili and her family were great hosts. I had a wonderful stay. They live very close to Harvard Square, and it was an easy walk to my Harvard workshops.
