This private secluded guest apartment is located in the thriving and diverse neighborhood of Union Square. Union Square is also a public transit bus hub, with easy access to elsewhere in Somerville, Cambridge, and Boston. We are a good location for couples or solo adventurers, and our location and privacy are ideal for business travelers to Kendall Square, Central Square, Harvard, MIT, or Tufts. We are an LGBTQ safe space.

The space

The guest apartment is located in our private home. It has an entrance that is separate from the main residence and acts much like an attic studio apartment for when we have guests. With 15 foot ceilings at its peak, it is open and spacious. It has a large queen bed and a full-sized futon sofa. It has both heating and air conditioning and a private back porch with a sunset view.

The kitchen contains a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, electric kettle, and sink. Provided are plates, bowls, cups, mugs, silverware, pots, pans, and basic cooking utensils. The tap water is good to drink.

The full bathroom is small and contains a shower stall. Provided are towels, a hair dryer, soap, and shampoo.

In the sitting area there is a monitor and speakers into which you can plug your laptop (or music player). An HDMI cord is provided. The monitor does not receive cable or broadcast stations. It is purely a monitor for your computer.

Between the eating and sitting areas there is a table for both dining and working. There is a small dresser, closet, and a storage space at the entrance for luggage, shoes, coats, etc.

The guest apartment utilizes the main entrance of the house, which is shared by working offices on the two floors below the apartment.

Guest access

Parking: For stays of two nights I have a parking pass available to allow you to park overnight on the street. For longer stays there is off-street parking available in a parking lot a couple blocks away.

Chandra's place was everything we were looking for. Anything you need is within walking distance and she provided the directions. She responded quickly with questions and was very accommodating. We loved the small private deck to soak in some sunshine. Highly recommend!

Chandra was great about communicating! Her apartment was clean and very well put together! The location was perfect and easily accessible to many bus lines. Next time we are in Boston, we will definitely stay here!

Interaction with guests

The guest apartment is separate from the private residence of the larger house. You have complete privacy. My family occupies the main residence. If there's anything you need, or you want to ask about the city, I'm just a text message away.
