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!)

Clean & Comfy Condo in Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

This condo is as described: spacious and very clean; comfortably furnished (super comfy Tempurpedic king mattress); with lots of nice personal touches throughout. I appreciated the coffee and tea (especially since it was still mighty cold outside). My 12-year-old son enjoyed the novelty of the manual typewriters.

Melissa was a great host. She responded quickly and was easily accessible via phone, text, or email.

We would stay again, and will recommend to friends.

Great Stay in Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as described. it was clean, cozy, very comfortable and in a convenient location. Lovely touches were provided, including a welcoming note in the antique typewriter, flowers on the table and herbal teas in the kitchen. Being able to park on the street in front was a plus. Melissa was helpful in every regard.

Great condo, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was an excellent choice for our family to enjoy Thanksgiving in Boston. The pictures are exactly what the condo looks like. Everything is very well furnished. Very comfortable beds. Street parking was never a problem. Melissa was very attentive and quick to respond - even texting us to move the car for street cleaning! We did have a rental car but public transit was easily accessible. We will definately stay here again.

Wonderful family wedding weekend oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were in Boston for a family wedding and wanted a place where five adult family members (ages 59-69) could stay together and RELAX.

This rental was perfect.

It was an oasis in a lovely city.

We always looked forward to getting "home" to it.

Harvard Square was a beautiful half-hour walk away. Mass transit easily available when necessary. We had a rental car and could always find a nearby place to park on the street.

The evenings were quiet in the neighborhood.

The owners responded promptly to emails and bent over backwards to make our stay perfect. It was.

We would definitely rent it again and highly recommend it.
