The place was great, ideal for what I wanted which was a short 3 day visit to Boston. Only a short walk from Harvard. Jared was really welcoming. A nice bed with clean facilities!

Nice and clean house, within a 15 min walk to Harvard square. Had a minor issue with check in that can be easily fixed by spacing out the check in and check out times. Otherwise, very lovely place to stay while visiting Boston. Thank you Jared!

What a lovely stay! Jared was helpful and has an absolutely lovely place here. After a day of packing for a local move, it was great to be able to relax for a night before getting back to work. The place was clean, private, cozy, and the private bathroom was a nice touch (I had been looking forward to a cool shower all day)! My only regret was that our stay was so short!
