Great apartment near Harvard and public transportation

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, and the location is perfect: very close to the T (2 blocks) and zipcar parking (basically across the street). We were 4 adults (all family, 3 generations), and we were all comfortable - the only potential problem could be the steep stairs to reach the apartment. Karin was very helpful answering all our questions before our arrival and checking in to make sure everything was good. There are stores and restaurants near by and it is an easy T ride or nice walk to Harvard University. We will definitely stay there again on a future visit and recommend it to friends.

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.

Owner's Response: We are glad this guest enjoyed her visit. Of all our reviews we have not found anyone to think the apartment as sparse but everyone has different experiences in which to compare. We usually have beautiful towels, thick, luxurious and we buy them frequently. I think it may have been a time when we were low on towels. We have checked the towels and all are now thick and soft.

Lovely people

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.

Tarpon Springs, Fl

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.
