Located along a quiet street you will find this pleasant, crisp and soothing space, just a few steps up from the front yard. This comfortable 2-bedroom family vacation rental in Cambridge, with hardwood floors and lovely paintings, features a combination dining and living room with a queen sleep sofa and cable TV, a full kitchen, one full bath with a tub and shower, and one small half bath. One bedroom has two extra-long twin beds that can be made into a king bed, and the second bedroom has a queen bed. It is only a ten minute walk to Harvard Law, and just after is Harvard Square. It is two blocks to the subway (1 stop to Harvard Square and a ten minute ride to downtown Boston), and to the Porter Square indoor shopping mini-mall, with casual restaurants. There are many boutique shops and ethnic restaurants within a few minutes of this great family vacation rental in Cambridge as you walk along Massachusetts Ave. Your host, fluent in French and English, operates a small yoga studio and healing center in the apartment house, and she invites you to join her during some classes.

great location, lots of space with no frills

  • 4 of 5

I stayed there with my husband and another couple for a weekend in Boston/Cambridge. It was a great location for us; a lot of things to do that we could walk to. The apartment was large with a full kitchen, bathroom and half bath. The space was fine, but it definitely was bare bones; I've stayed in apartments where they are more "lived in" and cozy.

I do recommend bringing your own towels because the ones that were in the apartment with thin and likely needed to be replaced.

Lovely people

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely. Super clean, comfortable beds and very helpful extra blankets and pillows.

Karen and Tengi were easy to contact, lovely to speak with and very helpful and considerate. It's a great location near the T. I would most definitely stay there again.

Many thanks.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. We were 2 couples and the setup was perfect for us. Karin and her caretaker Tengi were very helpful. Our flight came in later than expected and they were both very flexible with getting us settled in the apartment. Great location. Close to the T and coffee shop. Would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Boston for a graduation and stayed at this Cambridge rental. It met our needs perfectly as far as cleanliness and space. The location was prime. It was very close to the subway and within walking distance of great restaurants, grocery store, drugstores, etc. We had very little contact with the owner but felt we could contact her/building manager easily if required. I would recommend this rental to friends/family visiting Boston.
