True Cambridge Oasis!!!
Our 3 generation family gathered for a family wedding at Harvard. Daria and her husband were open, available and responsive during our reservation and entry process. Their home is a large,
very clean and absolutely beautiful space. The home is an architectural, artistic and cultural delight. The wonderful kitchen appliances, table and counter areas embraced our gatherings for meals, crafts and conversations. The huge sunken living room was spacious and comfortable for our immediate group, who love books and media. It was great for extended family visits after the June 28th Cambridge street dance, the wedding rehearsal evening and our family breakfast the day after the wedding events. All ages apreciated the nearby parks, Whole Foods and restaurants, the walkability of the neighborhood, the homes gorgeous gardens and even a trampoline. Every age family member had comfy beds, clean lovely rooms and bathrooms. We had such a very busy wedding weekend schedule but this "oasis" was our complete respite and we made more happy memories there. Our daughter's wedding dress was photographed in the morning light of the master bedroom windows. The photographer loved the natural light when raising the shades as we did while staying there. We have family nearby in Cambridge and Boston and they raved about this amazing gem. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Daria!
What a Space! What a Location!
Our group of 11 met up and stayed here for a weekend of two Red Sox games, biking along the Charles River, and generally enjoying Cambridge and Boston. The home was the PERFECT place for us! We walked to and from Fenway for both games (40-50 very enjoyable minutes).
The home itself is every bit as amazing as the photographs make it look. Wonderful, functional kitchen; 2.5 great bathrooms, one one each floor; lots of sleeping options; huge rooms and COUNTLESS windows and skylights; cable TV for World Cup Soccer (our this week) and Boston sports games; an amazing outdoor sitting area; 2 off -street parking spaces! We can’t say enough good about our stay here.
Communication and check in/check out was easy as can be. We are so grateful we had a place like this for our amazing weekend. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing, convenient house for large group.
The house was perfect for a college reunion weekend involving three couples and their respective young children. Plenty of neat, well-maintained common spaces and bedrooms. Beautiful setting nestled in mature trees despite close proximity to Harvard Square, Central Square, and Boston. Everything was in great condition. Very roomy. Plenty of natural light and peace and quiet. Owner/renter was also extremely responsive and helpful.
Great outdoor space
We enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed for our stay. Walking distance to stores and public transportation.
Daria checked in with us during our stay.
Awesome country house in the City
This place is beautiful, heavy wood beam construction, beautiful garden, great kitchen. Very convenient to everything Boston and Cambridge have to offer.
Beautiful Home, Great Location
We loved our stay at Daria's home. It is beautiful with plenty of room for our extended family of 7. We could walk to the red line (or take a bus there, from right outside our door). Daria was very helpful and responsive when we had trouble finding the place and checked in with us during our stay. Grocery stores and restaurants are also within walking distance. We absolutely recommend Riverside.
