A most elegant condominium awaits you on the first floor of this lovely 1860 Victorian home close to Harvard Square. The 30' living/bedroom has restored period moldings, hardwood floors, large windows, a large sisal woven area rug, and a decorative fireplace. The front of the room serves as a sitting area, with a sleep sofa, while the rear has a handsome 19th Century four-poster queen-sized bed. (The bed is slightly shorter than a standard queen.) There is a gleaming white tiled bath, a full separate kitchen, a pleasant deck off the kitchen with full morning sun and a lovely garden on the side of the house. As one of the finest Cambridge vacation rentals, this unit includes cable television, a stereo system with CD and cassette player, high speed Internet, a landline telephone with an answering machine and free laundry in the basement. In the friendly neighborhood of Inman Square, on beautiful Maple Avenue with its large trees and homes, you are near nationally-recognized restaurants, an easy 12-minute walk from Central Square and less than a 15-minute walk from Harvard Square.

The unit covers 1/2 of the first floor of a beautiful old house in Cambridge, on a quiet private street among many other beautiful old houses. The interior was more spacious than I expected --
* a very large livingroom with lots of chairs and a TV in half of it, and a really nice antique 4 poster bed in the other house
* a full size and fully equipped kitchen.
* a large modern bathroom, with gleaming fixtures and tile work.
* lots of large windows
* clean and mostly well maintained.

There is a large parking lot in the back yard, and that was great because on-street parking would have been a problem.

Lots of good restaurants and jazz clubs in the area.

A couple of very minor problems:
1) it wasn't ready when we got there - apparently due to some confusion about which guest was checking in. This was resolved promptly.
2) there were a lot of burned out light bulbs and I would have appreciated better lighting in the unit.
3) the bathtub is very large, which is great for a large person like myself, but there was no stopper in sight, so I couldn't enjoy the long soak that I was planning on.
4) the cable TV package is somewhat limited... fine for watching the news but if you want to curl up and watch an old movie with your sweetie, you don't have many choices.

Overall I was quite pleased and my wife was too. I would definitely come back on a future trip to the Boston area. Definitely was worth 5 stars, in spite of a few minor issues.

Fantastic apartment!

My husband and I loved this apartment. It is a very large studio with tasteful furnishings. We like to cook, and we found the kitchen to be fully equipped and well-stocked with basic cooking ingredients. The location is unbeatable-about halfway between M.I.T. and Harvard and near many commercial establishments. The apartment is on a quiet residential street. We felt safe when walking at night in the neighborhood. The apartment is part of a large house; we had no issues with noise from other units. We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Location and Accommodations

This is a great find - on site parking, a large living room/bed area, separate bathroom, and large kitchen, with all the necessary appliances. Owner lives next door but is completely unobtrusive. About a 10 minute walk to Central Square ( T stop for Red Line) , 7 minutes to Whole Foods and 15 minute walk to Harvard Square. Downsides are minor - a bit dark overall, foot noise from above and really crappy cable; oitherwise, we greatly enjoyed our week at this locaiton and would return if in Cambridge/Boston again.

Lovely stay

Doreen, Canada - My daughter and I had a very pleasant stay at this lovely suite during October. Spacious and elegant describe the living quarters with a short walk to transportation, groceries or just a friendly cup of coffee at one of the local shops. The area is beautiful with the tree lined streets and it was a delight to sit and relax on the deck. I would definitely make reservations again.

Perfect!!

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights with our two young children, and were so glad to be where we were. Prefectly located between Central Square and Harvard Square, with easy access to MANY dining options and stores, this apartment is the perfect place to stay! Murray was such a gracious host, and made us feel right at home. If you are over 6ft tall, the antique queen bed may not be as comfortable for you than other options, but I would say this is a small compromise in light of all the other positive features.
