Condo/Apartment
This is for travelers interested in weekend, weekday, week-long rentals (and longer) of a room in my Belmont home (near the Cambridge and Watertown lines). I am offering this, Airbnb-style, such that I live at the house and you will be sharing it with me. It's fantastic for short-term stays to see events like The Boston Marathon, The Head of the Charles, First Night (New Year's Eve), and Boston's July 4th celebration... Or for parents visiting students or attending graduations at one of Cambridge and Boston's many colleges and universities... (We're 10 minutes to Harvard by car). We're a 4-minute walk from the MBTA bus line which runs to Harvard Square in Cambridge (a 10-minute ride), and a 30-minute bus/subway ride into Boston. Or park your car in the driveway and you can drive into C...This is for travelers interested in weekend, weekday, week-long rentals (and longer) of a room in my Belmont home (near the Cambridge and Watertown lines).

We're a 4-minute walk from the MBTA bus line which runs to Harvard Square in Cambridge (a 10-minute ride), and a 30-minute bus/subway ride into Boston. Or park your car in the driveway and you can drive into Cambridge and downtown Boston within 10-15 minutes. The condo is a tastefully decorated (lots of African art!) first floor of 2-family home built in the 1920's. It has hardwood floors, a beamed living room ceiling, fireplace, and renovated kitchen. It's on a quiet, tree-lined street that is steps from a local park with newly-renovated tennis courts, and a 10-minute walk from the Fresh Pond Reservoir (great walking!) and community golf course. There's also plenty of restaurants, a supermarket and shopping nearby. Provided are a king size bed in a private room with TV, access to the bathroom, kitchen (with 55-inch flat screen TV), living room, dining room, den with fireplace, workout room, and back porch with barbecue and nice yard. Single guests, or couples who do not require or want to share a king size bed, are welcome to stay in another in another bedroom, which has two single beds, one of which is a trundle which pulls out from under the other. See the options in the photos with just one bed versus two. This room is the same size as the room with the king bed. It has a bureau to put clothes in, a desk to work at or just to use to put your suitcase on, and a comfortable chair to sit in. The room with the king bed has a table to put a suitcase on and less storage than the room with the single(s). The room with the king bed does have a chair, though it is wooden and more of a decorative piece than one you would lounge in. It also has a TV, where the room with the single beds does not, but you are welcome to use the 55-inch TV in the living room at any time. For parties requiring more than one bedroom, I can rent out both rooms for double the price of this listing. You are welcome to use my workout room, which has a multi-weight machine, free weights, bench, arm curling station , stationary bicycle, stair master, TV and stereo. You will find my home very clean and well-kept up. Feel free to be messy in your room, but know that the rest of the house won't be a burden to you as far as any mess goes. Lastly, I have two cats. While I keep the house well-vacuumed, this may not be the space for you if you're allergic.More
