We bought this property because it is in a great location and is just the right size. We can walk or use public transportation to get anywhere we need to be. The neighborhood is really cute and the neighbors have been very welcoming.

I knew this was our home as soon as I saw the listing. We have not been disappointed. The first floor apartment is spacious and comfortable. Just the kind of place we like to stay ourselves when we travel.

Wonderful apartment in Somerville

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were thrilled with this apartment and its location. Nice and quiet, but still close enough to the action. We walked to the subway station every day to head out to MIT or downtown Boston. The grocery store was only a few blocks away (easy stroll even after a busy day). The apartment itself was perfect. Well kept up and very charming. We had a busy few days at MIT and Boston, but then could return for a relaxing night. If you are going to the Boston/Cambridge area, I would strongly recommend this apartment...you won't be disappointed. Thank you Judy!

Home away from Home

What a great way to stay in the Cambridge area! House is perfect. We had our car, but hardly moved it. It is a little bit of a walk into Harvard Square~the rain didn't even stop us though! If you don't feel like walking, take a cab. Grocery store, bar, & Walgreens all close by, too. Absolutely recommend!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This is a first class property with all the conveniences. I stayed for two weeks in this lovely, spotless, quiet, and sunny flat and lacked for nothing. Judy was warm and accommodating, allowing me to park my rental car in the driveway and even taking me to the local farmers' market. The flat is close to all amenities-- we loved the local Indian restaurant just ten minutes away, and really perfect whether you're eating in or out. I highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
Tasteful, exceptionally clean, comfortable, fully equipped apartment in a convenient and terrific neighborhood. Close to grocery stores, coffee shops, and great restaurants. Judy, the owner, goes to great lengths to assure that your every need is met plus adds many extras. She is wonderful to work with and available to help during your stay in any way she can. A true gem when visiting both Cambridge and Boston. We are extremely particular and would highly recommend this apartment. It made our visit all the more wonderful!!!
