About

Our sunny, 2nd floor apartment is well lived in, cozy, and comfortable, but neat and organized. We like to keep a relaxing, and inviting home environment. The 2 family house is located on a quiet residential street in East Arlington. The bus on the corner gets to Harvard Square in less than 20 minutes, and the Red Line(subway) is nearby, connecting us to the rest of the Boston transit system(MBTA). Although the neighborhood is quiet, just a few houses down at the corner where the street meets Mass Ave is a grouping of small stores, cafes, restaurants, ice cream shops, and the like. There is even a small, local movie theater. Within walking distance are Arlington Center and Davis Square, larger commercial centers which attract most of the non-local traffic and keep our neighborhood remarkably quiet for all its convenience. East Arlington one of the gems of the Greater Boston area. Access to the Minuteman bike path is just around the corner. It's lovely for walking, biking, etc. There are parks, green spaces, ponds, small rivers and wetlands dotted around, within walking distance. I'm 35, and have lived, worked, and studied abroad often. I have always been delighted by the warmth and generosity of the people who have made and shared space for me during my travels. I've been looking forward to the opportunity to open my home to my home people who could benefit from a peaceful, warm environment to settle into while working, studying, or visiting nearby. I grew up down the street in Lexington, and have called Cambridge, Boston, and New England home my whole life. I love being helpful, and it would be my pleasure to share my knowledge and love of the surrounding areas. I play soccer, practice yogasana, cook, read, write, draw, listen to music, and keep plants. Liz, my roommate, spends long stretches of her time away in New York, on Cape Cod and the North Shore, and traveling elsewhere. I work at a fine dining restaurant in Harvard Square, and am preparing applications for masters degree programs beginning in the fall of 2022. I leave the house around 2pm most days for work, and return around 11:30.
