SUNNY, QUIET, TWO BEDROOM CONDO IN CAMBRIDGE - MINUTES OUTSIDE OF HARVARD SQUARE

Cambridge Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 bath, Can sleep 6, Sunroom, Central A/C, pet and family friendly.

This sun drenched, second floor condo is located in a quiet Cambridge neighborhood yet is just minutes away from all of the action. Our warm and spacious condo comes complete with all the amenities you would want in your own home: central AC, hi-speed internet, a washer/dryer, cable TV (with all the movie channels,) a full kitchen with dishwasher, and plenty of board games/books/DVDs to keep you well entertained!

The condo sits in the most ideal location of the entire city! We are nestled between Harvard Square, Porter Square, Davis Square and Fresh Pond. The bus stop is less than a minute walk. From there it is a 7 minute bus ride to Harvard Square or your feet can take you to Davis, Porter or Harvard Square in 20 minutes. From Harvard Square you can hop on the T and travel anywhere within the Cambridge/Boston area.

We are steps away from the biggest park in Cambridge and a short walk to Fresh Pond. The condo is in a friendly neighborhood with lots of trees, local cafes, cute shops, restaurants and grocery stores very near by. Should you choose to drive, on-street parking available. We are convenient to all of the local colleges, universities, area hospitals and Boston attractions. Whatever brings you to Boston/Cambridge, this is the perfect location for you and your family (even the four-legged variety!)

Tucker and Melissa live in the condo located in the other half of this home. Tucker grew up in Cambridge and has lived in the first floor condo for 30 years. We know a lot about Cambridge and the surrounding areas and are happy to give 'insiders tips' to those in need. Melissa is a social worker by trade and Tucker owns two nearby, independent coffee shops.

Melissa purchased this condo in 2013

We think this condo is the perfect home located in the perfect location inside the perfect city. We hope to live here for the rest of our lives!

Location. Location. Location. The neighborhood is quiet so it feels relaxing but in a matter of minutes you can be in the thick of it all, should you choose.

Perfect for our Cambridge stay

  • 5 of 5
Loved this place. It was clean, inviting and spacious. Loved the sunroom. Beds were super comfortable. We stayed here after four busy days in New York so it was a perfect place to relax after a hectic few days. About a 15 minute walk to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, which are the closest markets if you want to loaded up on food for the place. Great public transportation straight to Cambridge Square. You can get to the T from Cambridge Square and head into Boston easily. I would definitely stay here on any return trip to Boston. Thank you Melissa for letting us stay in your lovely place.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute of our stay at Melissa and Tucker's condo. It is located on the second floor (there is a good flight of stairs to climb), while Melissa and Tucker are in the main floor unit of the building with their young child. The condo is located on a quiet street just steps away from Danehy park and Fresh Pond. It is an excellent choice for families and really is "just like home". Melissa has provided everything you need for a comfortable stay and then some. It is exactly as pictured and described, clean and well-maintained. There are lots of windows so it is bright and cheerful. We especially loved the sunroom which overlooks the street. The back porch has been converted into a large laundry room with a brand new washer/dryer. The bedrooms have large closets and the mattresses on both beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and has full sized appliances including a dishwasher. Melissa really goes above and beyond to provide you with everything you could possibly need including an extensive list of local restaurants. TW Foods is a real gem just a five minute walk away. If you have a car, the allowed parking zone reaches very close to Harvard Square so you can park and walk or you can take the bus which stops on the main road very close by. I would highly recommend this wonderful condo to families or anyone who wants a peaceful place that feels like home.

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot for our family to stay in Cambridge for our daughter’s graduation. The location was ideal – an easy walk to both Porter Square and Harvard Square for restaurants, shopping, transit. The condo is very spacious and comfortable, extremely clean and well appointed. The day beds in the sunroom provided exactly the flexible option we needed, since we did not know until the last minute if our son would be able to join us. Melissa is a gracious and accommodating, but also completely unobtrusive, on-site owner who was easy to communicate with about the condo details and our arrival and departure arrangements. I would definitely recommend renting this condo!

Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Five of us enjoyed a wonderful stay in this flat. First, Melissa is a fabulous host. She was responsive, friendly, and available. You will appreciate all of the small touches she provides, from fresh flowers to delicious Diesel Cafe coffee. The flat had everything we could possibly want, including lots of linens, umbrellas, and laundry. The mattresses are so comfy, and the rooms are all so spacious. It was truly a comfort to come home at the end of each long day exploring. Highly recommend!

Fabulous condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Our family was here for the 2014 Boston Marathon. We could not have asked for more lovely accommodations. Melissa has created a space that is both functional and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of room for our family of 5, a fully appointed kitchen and nearby groceries so we could cook meals, and easy access to public transit. We also enjoyed the board games and the DVD selection. Melissa exceeded our expectations with fresh fruit and flowers, fresh coffee beans and a selection of teas. State of the art laundry and comfortable beds make this a perfect stop for families. Our favorite spot was the overstuffed armchair in the lovely sunroom. Only wish we had more time to spend here. In addition, Melissa is timely with communication and helpful with tips and advice. You will not be disappointed.

Flawless!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location - great neighborhood! Clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated without being cluttered. Melissa's attention to detail is remarkable - you will want for nothing in her rental condo.
We walked, drove, and took the bus to Harvard Square - all easy. We visited the park, the river, Harvard Stadium, Porter Square, and drove to Concord and Lexington. The Deluxe Diner, Legal Seafood, Christopher's, Cambridge Common, the local pizzeria, Hi-Rise Bakery, Flour Bakery, and the nearby grocery stores were all good. We'll be back!
