Please read my full description to ensure my place is a good fit for your needs and personality!

And feel free to inquire about long-term stays as well!

Der Wohnraum

Sharing my home provides you a clean, spacious private bedroom in a fully furnished 3 bedroom/ 1 bathroom (shared) apartment between Harvard and Davis Sq. It's a charming old Victorian in a residential neighborhood. Walking distance to Harvard, Porter, Davis. Please note this is my personal home. Calm sanctuary-like space with much love and care put into the home. Please contribute to this atmosphere. Please make yourself at home and treat it as such :)

Upstairs Bedroom: Up a flight of stairs on it's own/private floor. It has a super comfy Luxury Firm pillowtop full size mattress (bought new May 2017), desk, comfy rolling/spinning desk chair, dresser, and clothes rack.

Accessibility: There are about 7 steps outside up the apartment with a handrail. This bedroom is located on it's own floor, up a flight of stairs. There is no handrail on the stairs up to the bedroom. If you have any questions about accessibility, please do not hesitate to ask.

IF YOU PLAN TO COME WITH A CAR, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! Please inquire if the parking pass is available. See details below under "Getting Around."

As it is a private residence, there are no locks on bedroom doors. Rest assured your bedroom will be private.

Please begin your inquiry by introducing yourself! Let me know if this is your first experience on airbnb or if you've used it before, the purpose of your trip, what time you're planning to check-in / out, and your favorite color so I know that you've read this description and we're on the same page!

If the check-in / check-out times pose a challenge for your travel circumstances, let me know, and I'll do my best to accommodate. You may store your luggage outside the check in/out times.

If there's anything I can do to make your stay more relaxed & comfortable, please let me know. Read on and I look forward to welcoming you!

Zugang für Gäste

Private bedroom with access to shared spaces, fully equipped kitchen, living room, bathroom with essentials (towels, linens, soap), and a washer and dryer (in the apartment). Wi-Fi throughout the house. Peaceful and quiet sanctuary - ideal for studying, relaxing, meditating. I have another listing for the other bedroom and my room for when I'm traveling.

Local Hostfully Guide provided with recommendations for activities, attractions, and tasty food.

Interaktion mit Gästen

I live here and am always available in person, by phone, or message.

Long chats and laughs in the kitchen, sharing stories, and connecting with guests who become new friends is why I host. I am also happy to give space for you to find your own rhythm here and respect privacy and quiet time. That being said, my place will only be a good fit for you if you view my presence and living with a local a positive thing. If you prefer a hotel-like experience -- a transactional exchange, rather than a relational exchange -- my home is not a good fit for you.

Q: Do you have a bike I could use?
A: Depends on time of year and status of bike. Just ask! I have a mountain bike I can let guests use, as long as they are careful and make sure to lock it up. I'm 5'3" and have had guests 5'8" use it. It would probably be too small for anyone taller than that.

Q: How do I get to your place from the airport?
A: Public transportation is free and easy from the airport to my place. I provide a clear set of directions near your arrival date. If you have lots of luggage and don't want to take public transport, you can take a rideshare. If you don't have an account for Lyft, Fasten, or Uber I will give you my referral code and you'll get the first ride free!

Q: When can I expect to receive the directions and instructions from you?
A: I provide all details a few days prior to arrival. If you need this information sooner, just ask!

Q: What are check-in & check-out times?
A: Check is 3PM or later and check out is 10AM or earlier. This is to ensure time to clean between guests who check in & out on the same day. If this poses difficult for your travel plans, let me know and we'll try to make it work.

Bonus Hidden Question: If you were a kind of cheese, what cheese would you be?

*If you read through everything and feel my home is a good fit for you, I'll likely think the same. Look forward to welcoming you!

Please respect the space and anyone in it. No smoking of any substance during the duration of your stay, including the day of arrival and departure (no smoking inside or outside). No burning incense. I am allergic to smoke and highly sensitive to its effects and will become very ill even from residue on clothing. To protect my health, I cannot host anyone who actively smokes. No drugs, alcohol, or parties. No pets (though I love them). I live in a respectful, calm, sanctuary-like space - please contribute to this atmosphere.

If you are not 100% satisfied with something, please give me a chance to make it right while you're here.

When you enter, please remove your shoes while inside the house. This helps keep it clean. If there is a physical/bodily reason that you must keep your shoes on, just let me know.

Registered guests only, any visitors require advanced permission. Please, no third party booking. If you have a reason you must book using someone else's account, please explain so in your message.

You are welcome to use the kitchen freely. Please take care of dishes, cookware, and utensils that are provided and return them in the same condition you found them. Please turn off all lights and appliances when not in use. Please ensure the bathroom remains clean and that you leave it in the same condition you found it.

Washer/dryer: One amenity that I provide (which is quite rare in this neighborhood -- most places have coin-op in basement or must go to a laundromat) is use of washer/dryer, which is in unit. That said, I ask that you please be considerate and reasonable with your usage. Excessive usage (more than once per week) may incur a charge. If you have a reason you need to use it more than once/week, please just ask.

I have a $5 lost key policy. I've spent quite a bit of time (and money) on replacing many missing keys over the years, so hoping starting this policy helps folks be a bit more mindful with the keys. Lost keys pose a real logistical and practical problem when guests are checking in and out the same day and I don't have a key I can provide. Appreciate your understanding.

Very important: THERE SHOULD ALWAYS BE AT LEAST ONE KEY IN THE LOCKBOX AT ALL TIMES SO NO ONE GETS LOCKED OUT. Thanks for respecting this -- I don't want anyone getting stuck outside, especially in the cold!

The room was exactly as advertised, the house clean and the sharing experience pretty good. The apartment was quiet both night and day, the location extremely convenient to reach the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

The appartment is located in 5 min distance from porter or davis square. The room is separeted from the rest and there is a living room with access to a printer and so on. I got some nice information about the area and recomendations and Jacey was very friendly.

Jacey is a great host. I received very fast answers to all my requests, and Jacey has been extremely helpful to make my arrival and my stay very pleasant. The room was exactly as described, and the house is in a very central location near Porter Square. I definitely recommend it!

Jacey was a perfect host. She was kind and welcoming, and very laid-back and easy to talk to. On my first night, I was immediately invited to come along for dinner by Jacey and her family, because I arrived very late. Thank you so much for this warm welcome! During my one-month stay I felt very much at home at Jacey's place. The whole flat is very nice. I was allowed use all the nice equipment in the kitchen. Throughout my entire stay I could use Jaceys bike for free, which made travelling around Cambridge easy. I had to go to Harvard every day which is either an easy bike ride or only one stop on the red-line T train. Also, check out the close-by Minutemen Trail for a walk, jog or bike-ride! The room is even better than the pictures suggest, Jacey has added a few things to make it even more comfortable and homely and the bed is amazingly comfortable. It is very quiet there, you won't get bothered by noise from the street or neighbors. Jacey wants her home to provide a safe retreat for everyone staying there which I appreciated very much. It is a perfect atmosphere for visiting the city, studying or working in Cambridge/Boston. All in all, I had a perfect stay. I thank Jacey and her family for the wonderful month I had staying there and I definitely recommend staying there! If I get the chance, I will defenitely book again.

Jacey was very nice and I slept wonderful in the bedroom upstairs. Since there were other guests in the house, I would have appreciated a lock on the door. But even without it, I didn't get disturbed. Everything was fine!

Jacey is a perfect host and the room and the whole flat is amazing! The house is very close to Harvard and Jacey even offered me to use her bike. Thanks so much for that! The neighbourhood is nice and quiet and public transport close. It was very great to chat with Jacey, she is a wonderful person and helps wherever she can. I really recommend to stay in this cozy room!

Nutzerprofil von Jacey

I first became a host on airbnb when I moved out to SoCal for college. I chose Pitzer so I could create my own study called Rhetoric, Consciousness, and Power. I have recently graduated and moved to Cambridge. While I have an academic head, I have an artist's spirit. I love all forms of art, namely spoken word poetry. I strive to create spaces in which people feel comfortable and confident to express themselves. In terms of living, I strive for a calm, peaceful, sanctuary-like space. I have stayed at a few places through Airbnb with my mom and really enjoyed the chance to meet people who could point us toward events or places we might like in the city. I would love to be able to do the same for people who are traveling around here. My mom raves about her experience hosting so I thought I would join too!
