Centrally located to take advantage of all that Cambridge and Boston has to offer. Off street parking is available, but you can walk or take the subway to all major attractions. 3 Blocks from the Charles River, wonderful restaurants, and shopping.
Beautifully appointed apartment with all the comforts of home. You'll have a private entrance and balcony overlooking our beautiful garden and courtyard. Comfortable, cozy, quiet and private.
My wife and I highly recommend staying at this lovely apartment for those visiting Cambridge/Boston! The location was ideal for walking to the various Cambridge neighborhoods, and very convenient (short hop over the bridge) to Boston! The owners Paul & Lynne are very hospitable and keep what we would deem an impeccable and highly functional flat. The space was great and the parking spot is a bonus!
Paul and Lynne were fantastic hosts - friendly and hospitable, and the apartment was very warm, welcoming, and comfortable. I've got nothing bad to say or think about this stay. I very much enjoyed it and I would stay again and again if this apartment is available my next trips to Boston.
Thank you, Paul & Lynne.
We spent two months at the apartment while we were taking some executive courses and traveling around New England. The apartment became a second home for us.
The apartment is very cozy with a lot of light and a beautiful view overlooking the garden and the old trees. We found that the room is very spacious and the kitchen is very pleasant to cook in and eat.
We also loved the neighborhood it has a supermarket, restaurants, shopping center and movies within walking distance. It is also very pleasant to walk around and the Metro is only a few blocks away, making it extremely convenient.
Last, but not least, we enjoyed meeting Paul, Lynn and their daughter Amelia. They are very friendly, warm and welcoming, always willing to help with anything we needed during our stay.
We highly recommend this apartment. Our stay was amazing and we are positive that yours will be too.
Terrific Location. Comfy Accommodations. Quiet Neighborhood. Hospitable Host.
Great flat to unwind in after a day out in Boston. The photos tell it all and parking too! We live so close on Cape Cod but never have spent any time in Boston. We will now because we found the perfect place to stay and the perfect host.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4-week stay. The apartment is quiet, spacious, bright, well equipped and maintained, tastefully decorated (including several original pieces by the owner Paul), and beautifully located, both for trips into central Boston and trips via bus to Harvard Square. Both a supermarket and a large mall are within a 10 or 15 minute walk from the apartment. We enjoyed dinners at both Desfina's and Hellmand restaurants, also in the area. On nights in, we enjoyed the flat screen TV with good cable programming or listened to Internet radio on our laptop, taking advantage of the excellent WiFi reception. Paul was a great host, answering our questions and requests in a responsive and friendly way. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends or relatives.
