Along with our two sons (aged 11 and 14), we visited Boston for a week and stayed at this property. I have had my share of short term rentals, and this by far has been the best experience, ever.
Location/Neigborhood: The property is very close to Cambridge, Harvard Square (walked a few times, 20-30 mins max), has an on-street parking permit. Great neighborhood with small cafes and shops within walking distance. We left the lights on in our rental car one night, and a helpful neighbor (hi Bruce!) helped us jump it, and we met the other next door neighbor during the process (hi Adele!). Two grocery stores nearby, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. Lots of kids in the neighborhood, everyone taking walks, running, going to the nearby park...
Inside: VERY clean! Spotless! Tastefully decorated with everything labeled, and fully functional. Great taste, in my opinion, and has everything you might need. Plenty of hangers, great linens and mattresses, different types of pillows etc. Full kitchen with pots pans coffee grinder, coffee machine, teapots! Anything and everything you would need. Great entertainment system with plenty of movies and comfy couches with blankets! Feels totally home! Lots of books around, and cute decorative items such as typewriters (my kids were mesmerized). The washer and dryer work great, so pack light and do a load while there :)
Owners: SO, SO sweet, attentive, lovely lovely people! Answered every email extremely quickly with all kinds of details, suggestions... Great coffee, great company, and an awesome baby! Can't wait to stay there again.
