2 BR 1 bath, 860 sq ft 2nd fl apartment in 2 unit split level building. Across the street from the community path and 15 min walk to Davis Square subway stop. 1 off street parking spot. Lived in by me the owner for 10 years until recently, now I live in the house next door. AC/heat controlled by you. wi fi AND wired ethernet. Laundry. TV w cable/netflix. No food, but there are basic kitchen supplies. We are next door if you need something, just ask, we probably have it.

The space

Apartment has been updated by me over time. Kitchen was done in 2013 includes Silestone countertops, stainless appliances etc.

We can do some basic child friendly things since we have a child: safety gate, cabinet locks, outlet plugs, pack n play, high chair, toys, books.

Small laundry machines are in unit, in the bathroom. Larger machines are downstairs in common area and are shared with the other unit.

Guest access

It is an entire apartment, so you'll have access to everything in the apartment, including laundry. It is the upper level of a split level house, there is a separate apartment below that has its own entrance. The larger laundry machines are in the public area down below.

Interaction with guests

I'm there to meet people usually, and I'm very accessible, given I live in house next door and am usually around or nearby. Otherwise I leave people alone. You'll probably see me and members of my family outside.

Other things to note

2 bedroom, each with a queen bed. One of the couches converts into a bed. And the regular couch is also comfy. Please tell me ahead of time if you need bedding for couches. So there are several options for sleeping, but I generally prefer to keep it to max 4. I've priced it to be less for 1 or 2 people, a little more for 3 or 4 people, which seems fair to everyone and myself. 5 is too many people.

If you want to arrive a different time than the range I selected, just ask and usually I am able to accommodate depending on other guests.

Since this is a new listing, it has few reviews, but I have many positive reviews for another apartment on the same property, and this one is nicer/bigger than that one.

Not a place for loudness. Sound travels easily between the two apartments, so you must observe normal quiet hours, and keep the loud merriment outside the apartment, and take off your shoes indoors. It is also a quiet residential neighborhood with mostly families (including mine) so loud/drunk talking as you walk down the street late at night would not be good. MUST be quiet during typical sleeping hours.

I don't provide any food, there are grocery stores in Davis Square and Porter Squares. There are cooking tools, if you need to borrow anything we live next door, we probably have it.

This was my first stay with Airbnb, and it was great. The apartment was very clean, the beds were comfortable with nice sheets, and this was one of the quietest places I have ever stayed (much quieter than the average 4-star hotel). The location near the community path is also great, about 0.8 miles from Davis Square. Air conditioning worked perfectly and was quiet as well. I would definitely recommend this apartment and plan to return in the future.
