When we arrived in Somervile, we had left our home country to live in the USA and just needed a place to stay, until we found a place to live in the neighbourhood.

The house is clean, nice. Harris and Svetlana are two pleasant persons, with whom it was always a pleasure to chat. Moreover, they helped us in many ways during these first days in America.

Our search for a decent flat proved to be harder than expected and it was a blessing to stay there during these tough times, where all you have isa suitcase and all you do is visit crappy appartments all the day.

This was in january. Harris and Svetlana have since become good friends, that we see quite often.

If you like people in general, that's the place to stay in particular.
