Hi, I'm a young professional working in Boston. I am usually traveling so my living area largely goes unused. I love food, fitness, and staying healthy. I frequently take runs along the Charles, which is just a 5 minute walk from my doorstep. Regardless, I welcome you to experience this wonderful city, Cambridge is an incredible neighborhood, a perfect blend of historic and modern ambiance.

This vacation apartment met our needs perfectly. We were not looking for luxury but rather a clean, comfortable place to accommodate 4 adults for a week. Six adults would be a bit much as there is just 1 small bathroom off the living room. The subway (T) was a brisk 15 – 20 minute walk with grocery stores and restaurants along the way. In mid-September the weather was around 70 most days. The A/C units in the bedrooms were welcomed on the one warmer/humid day. The mattresses and pillows were a bit harder than we are use to. The upstairs living room gets warm so a window fan or floor fan would have been a nice addition. The photos of the kitchen and living room make the rooms look more spacious than they really are.

We rented a car for one day and the parking area was appreciated as there is no parking to be found on the street. A shared washer and dryer are available in the basement (typical old home basement) which came in very handy when cosmetics spilled inside our luggage :-( The kitchen is nicely equipped and even had coffee filters for the coffee maker.

Most of our communication and arrangements were done via e-mail which was no problem (48 hrs or less for replies). The keys were available in a lock box to accommodate our late arrival time. We did not meet or speak with the owners while we were there but we had their phone numbers in case we needed anything.

This apartment in Cambridge was perfect for our family vacation. It was very quiet and peaceful and in a very safe area. Yet it was close to Harvard and Harvard Square and if you are taking transit it was just blocks from the subway and several convenient bus lines to Boston downtown and to the many other sites that you would want to see. We really had a great time as the apartment was well equipped with cable and Wi-Fi. Perhaps best of all, the owners really took great care of our needs and that made a big difference in the quality of our stay. I recommend this home to anyone, especially families.
Owner's Response: Thank You Dan!
