Location is ideal for students and young professionals alike - easy and fast access to bus (around the corner) and Harvard Square station (less than 10-min by bus). Grocery store, CVS, and a good bakery/café called Sofra are a short distance by foot. I felt safe walking in the neighborhood on my late night returns. The street on which the house is situated is in a state of disrepair and is very tight with views consisting of a parking lot, but this didn't bother me. The house itself is spacious and cozy with a well-equipped kitchen. The bedroom is very small with not much walking space, especially when you add a big luggage in there as I had, but it's an easy and nice accommodation for a short-term stay (I was there for 1 month). Bed is single but comfortable - just ask host for extra pillows/covers if need be. Michelle is a cordial, calm, and polite host.

Michelle is very kind and her place is clean, safe and conveniently located. In my experience she treats you more like a roommate than a guest, which is fine if you know what you're getting yourself into. Some basics were missing (tea kettle, air conditioning- I was asked to pay extra for this). Otherwise, a very affordable and convenient stay.

Michelle is an excellent host, she is fun, friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my one-month stay with her. Her apartment is clean and well equipped, it is also very convenient to get to my work place in MIT.

Response from Michelle:
I canceled the same day the reservation was made. It is my very first cancellation on Airbnb and not the norm when booking at my home. Satish was very understanding- thanks Satish!!

La casa de Michelle está ubicada a tan solo 10 minutos en autobús de Harvard, desde donde sale el metro al centro de la ciudad. Cada 8 minutos pasa un autobús en esa dirección. A 4 cuadras hay un supermercado inmenso en el que se puede comprar todo lo necesario. La casa de Michelle es acogedora, se nota la mano femenina. Limpia, ordenada, todo en su lugar. La habitación es pequeña, pero cómoda y templada. La cocina es completa y dispones de todo lo necesario para cocinar. Michelle es una mujer de buen carácter y muy comprensiva; mi inglés no es el mejor y era la primera vez que vivía en un país angloparlante, y ella en ningún momento se mostró impaciente conmigo si yo encontraba algunda dificultad para expresarme o para entenderla. Recomiendo el alojamiento de Michelle, que además está a un precio increíble por lo bien situado que está.
