About Nina Quinlan

This is my second vacation/short-term rental. My daughter and I take great joy in setting them up, making them as delightful and homey as they can be.

Nina Quinlan purchased this condo in 2007

Why Nina Quinlan chose Boston

This property is charming and in a quiet area of Cambridge, yet a six-minute walk from both the Green and Red Lines, a 15-minute walk to Boston, hop skip to Central, Kendall and Inman squares. There is more music and more International restaurants here than you can shake a stick at and the major highways a stone's throw, making it convenient to get to the woods, mountains and beaches.

Beautiful and great location !

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! Thank you Nina for your gracious hospitality. We were met with fresh flowers, wine and fruit. This is a perfect location for a 5 minute walk to the T-Lechmere station. From there you can go almost anywhere! Super safe neighborhood and Nina has lots of suggestions for restaurants, coffee shops and other fun sites! Loved every minute of our short stay. We'll have to come back and stay longer next time! Thanks again Nina for everything !!! Aloha.

Fabulous home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Love this Place!!

Nina is a gracious host! Providing us with great tips on the area and restaurants.

The space is lovely, the location convenient. Just blocks from the red line and green line, in and out of Boston. Resides in a quiet neighborhood. The decor is very nice and the unit is well stocked with anything you could need including complementary fruit bowl, bottle of wine and delicious cookies! Equipped with comfy beds and roomy living spaces.

As a fellow VRBO operator I picked up a hosting idea or two!

We will return and stay again! Highly recommend :-)

Thanks Nina!

Great place to stay in Cambridge!

  • 4 of 5

I just recently stayed at Nina's property in Cambridge. Nina was great to work with and provided a lot of good information about the area.

We parked our car on the street (easy to find spots) and walked to the nearest train station every day. The accommodations fit our needs (for a family of four) perfectly! Everything was neat and clean and nicely decorated. Thank you for everything Nina. I would love to come back!

Great location and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Nina was a wonderful host and we really enjoyed staying at the apartment. It is well located and easy to get to and from. The parking pass which Nina let us use really helped so we didn't have to worry about getting a ticket and could take cabs when we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pans and cooking utensils. Nina left us lovely tulips and a bottle of wine which happened to be our favorite kind. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-kept home - very clean and comfortably furnished. The beds are firm and comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the location was great for us - about equidistant from two MTBA lines. Nina was cordial and accommodating. I would definitely rent this place again when next we travel to the Boston area.
