In town for a night or long weekend? Don't break the bank! Come stay in our 6-person RV. Immaculately maintained, incredibly big, bright and airy. Non-traditional setting in primo Somerville location: walking distance to MBTA, Assembly Row, award-winning bars and restaurants. Hop, skip & jump to Tufts University and more! Why overpay for a cramped hotel room or studio apt when you can enjoy this experience with us instead? Possiblity for FREE PARKING for one vehicle with advance notice to host.
This 6-person RV is great for individuals, couples or families with young children. The main bedroom area has a comfortable queen-sized mattress. Two bunk beds are located at the opposite end. The couch and dining room area both convert into additional beds.
Don't worry. This isn't your typical "camping" situation. Our RV offers heat, hot water, AC and full electricity. There's an indoor, stand-up shower stall, full plumbing and tons of storage (with iron, hair dryer, etc.). Inside you'll find a large fridge, freezer, microwave, double sinks, coffee pot and 3-burner stove. You can grill outside on the two-burner gas grill stove, as well, and we have patio chairs and a table available for you to use if you'd like to sit outside. Just because you're staying in an RV doesn't mean you should have to sacrifice on modern amenities!
Our camper is perfect for someone who doesn't want to overpay for a Boston-area hotel. We offer as much (if not more!) space than a hotel, studio apartment or private room rental. You have the entire RV to yourself and can come and go as you please.
Maybe you live in Central MA or Southern NH and have to commute into work every day. We know what that's like! Consider staying over night once or twice a week to ease the burden. We even have FREE parking for your vehicle in front of the RV in our private driveway (when available) or on-street parking in front of house (always) with pass provided by Host! Also great for people visiting friends/family at local colleges and universities (Harvard, MIT, Tufts, etc.).
**PLEASE NOTE: Reservations for more than 2 people, or extended stays (more than 4 nights) will require Host review and approval before confirming booking.**
Guests will have full use of the RV for the duration of their stay.
Interaction with guests
The RV is located in the driveway of our home. We are typically home during the week, but we do travel on some weekends. Guests can access the RV either way, at your convenience, without interference from us. However, if you need anything during your stay or if you'd prefer some interaction, please just give a shout!
Other things to note
We love this RV and have hosted a number of guests who have enjoyed the experience. We want to remind everyone, though, that this is an RV! Please keep that in mind and manage expectations accordingly. The space may not be as comfortable for people looking to stay inside all day, but it's certainly great for those looking to explore Boston, attend conferences and meetings, etc. before resting your head at night.
There are also little nuances to being in an RV, like having to flip a switch to turn the hot water heater on before you shower, and plan on taking relatively short showers! If you've never stayed in a camper before, you should know that they run on a series of 3 tanks. The freshwater tank only holds 48 gallons of water. That means, for instance, it's best to get wet in the shower, turn the water off, lather up, then rinse off in order to save water. We'll give you a quick 5-minute orientation when you get here if you've never stayed in an RV before (like how to refill the water if need be), and of course -- we're only a text/phone call away if you have any questions!
RV is only suitable for up to 3 adults. Additional children may be accommodated. PLEASE NOTE: bunk beds are relatively narrow -- ideally suited for children, young adults, and people under 5'10". Fold down couch and dining area are also relatively short. If you plan on having 3 adults stay, please keep this in mind. We don't want anyone to be caught off guard!
No guests under the age of 21 unless accompanied by a parent. Please include ages of all guests when you book. Only guests included in the reservation may be allowed on the property unless otherwise approved by the hosts.
Host lives on site and will monitor house rules accordingly.
PLEASE NOTE: Failure to return parking permit provided by hosts will result in full loss of security deposit. Please remember to return parking pass upon checkout to avoid such situation.
