My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Bill's apartment. The bed is amazing, the kitchen is great, the bathroom is spacious, and the apartment is tastefully decorated so you feel right at home. We would highly recommend this spot to other travelers.

My wife and I️ really enjoyed our stay here. We only stayed two nights which was a little too quick to fully enjoy the area. Next time we’ll stay a little longer. The check in was very easy and helpful with the keyless lock. Since the unit is on the second floor there are some narrow outdoor stairs to climb to get in. They are sturdy, but large luggage might be a small challenge. The rooms seemed larger in person than the photos portrayed. The mattress was a firm memory foam which was nice. Bill was very helpful with all communication and answering any questions. I️ would stay here again if we had more time to explore Somerville and the surrounding areas.

We loved the location in Somerville. We walked to some fun restaurants and to the Harvard campus. Bill and Bill are fantastic hosts, responding quickly to our questions. The apartment was so spacious and attractive. The bed was super comfortable. Loved it. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
