Great location93% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

My charming home is just steps away from the Red Line T where you can easily get to Harvard, Davis, and Central Squares, Tufts University, MIT and downtown Boston in mere minutes. My home is in a vibrant neighborhood with everything you could want easily accessible, from a grocery store, restaurants, shopping, gyms, an independent book store, coffee shops and much more. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

Loved staying at Joanne’s place. So close to the subway and shops. Had all the amenities I needed. Was like home only better. 5 min walk to the T. Was in town for the marathon by myself and felt safe and comfortable. Would stay again
