Overview

About the property

This is a brand new first floor apartment with 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathroom, newly appointed kitchen and bathrooms on a quiet street in Cambridge. Central air and ceiling fans make for a comfortable apartment during hot summer months. You will feel like you are a local as all the neighbors are very friendly. This apartment will accommodate 4 people very comfortably for a few nights, a full week or more. There are alot of great restaurants, shops, yoga studios, hair salon, spin studio and much more right within walking distance. On street parking is available with the use of the visitor pass which will be provided for you. We are situated between Harvard and MIT making the location very convenient and very accessible to the subway for easy access into Boston. We are only a couple blocks from the Charles River which makes for a nice early morning walk/run or perhaps a stroll after a meal. Also located by the river are the Hubway rental bikes.

About The Owner

This is a family home that my grandmother and grandfather bought back in the late 20's. We are very proud of the fact that we are 4 generations strong. I lived here for 15 years while studying and working. I just love this area and enjoy coming back every so often. We hope that you will enjoy the area as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1929

Amazing apartment in sleepy residential neighbourhood!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment for a week. It's very well equipped and perfectly located for exploring Cambridge, Boston centre and Harvard. There are lots of little restaurants and bars nearby and also cooking facilities at the accommodation. The subway is a 10-15 min walk and in just a few stops you reach Boston Common. The neighbourhood was very quiet at nighttime and we really liked the style of the buildings. A/C very efficient on hot days. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Our only issue was with getting the lock box back onto the wall but Leigh (the owner) was very helpful in giving advice so we soon had it sorted.

Beautiful, convenient, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in Cambridge. Easy 12-ish minute walk to the T (metro/subway). Beautiful apartment and comfortable for the four of us during our stay.

Leigh is very responsive and kept me informed of any requirements during our stay.

Highly recommend and wouldn't mind returning here in the future.
