My brother and I live in a bright and airy 3 bed/1 bath apartment situated a short 12 minute walk to either Kendall/MIT or Central Square Stations. Enjoy easy access to area colleges and universities, multiple parks, theaters, restaurants and shops.

The space

The space is quite comfortable and has lots of natural light, hardwood floors, and updated kitchen. The guest bedroom has a high-quality futon for sleeping enjoyment. Only one person can be hosted at a time.

*Please note that while we are happy to host on weekends, we are unable to accommodate Saturday check-ins.

Guest access

Guest has access to common areas such as the living room kitchen, and bathroom. Take advantage of our business-class wi-fi and the building's washer/dryer (coin operated).

Arrangements can be made for guest access to a local gym. Communicate with Darlye to coordinate schedules.

Interaction with guests

We're a brother/sister duo who love music, food, traveling, and meeting new people! We both work in campus ministries; Andrew as a chaplain and Darlye as a wellness educator. We're usually on the go but also get lots of work done at home. Guests will be able to enjoy their room in peace from where we usually work. We love getting to know new people and when time permits, showing guests around the city or just cooking and enjoying a meal together - which works out well for guests who like more interaction with their hosts.

Other things to note

The guest room is off of the living room with a window facing Broadway, a major street in Cambridge. Traffic noise can get loud particularly in the mornings. Sometimes on weekend evenings the neighbors above play loud salsa music. If you're a light sleeper, ear plugs may be helpful.

I've stayed with Darlye and Andrew before. They're great! In addition they're centrally located in Cambridge, close to Kendall/MIT and Central squares.

The traffic is a bit loud, but if you're a city person it's not an issue. There is a fan in the room but no air conditioner. The aptm is clean. I met Andrew who was very friendly and helpful. Great location in Cambridge!

Very nice and kind hosts, very flexible about the check-in. But the room was LOUD, the noise was terrible! I wasn't able to sleep half of the night because the neighbors were making so much noise! I know it's not their fault but I didn't see any information about this place being so loud in the description otherwise I might not have booked it! Also the room is facing the street which is pretty busy at night and also very loud (the walls are very thin!). Maybe not for you if you want a good night rest after sightseeing. The room was not as big as it appears on the pictures but big enough for the 2 days I stayed there. The location is very nice for sightseeing!

The location is very convenient for exploring the Somerville and Cambridge neighborhoods. As other reviews mention, the unit is right off of Broadway so there is some street noise. The room was exactly as advertised and the hosts were very nice. I only interacted with Andrew and he was very pleasant and helpful in answering my questions and providing recommendations for food around the neighborhood. I highly recommend this unit for a home base exploring Cambridge!

We love hosting people since our family did so while growing up. We're no strangers to living in a new environment since we've studied and lived abroad multiple times, couch surfed through Central America, and more. You'll enjoy our space and location very much. Hope to host you soon!
