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 East Cambridge

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.

A great place

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as advertised, just a great place with no problems. An excellent choice! There are fun restaurants within walking distance plus the location is close to the north end for even more restaurants and sightseeing. We went for the Marathon which also means that many roads are closed on Marathon Monday , so using the Lechmere subway stop, about 0.3 miles away, was also convenient.

Perfect location for college tours!

  • 5 of 5

This place was PERFECT for our college tour. It is central to many of the major colleges but also walking distance to many great restaurants and stores. More importantly, the place is super clean and very well stocked with everything we could possibly need. Nina, the owner, is very responsive to anything you may need and has thought of everything to make the stay comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment is in a quiet neighborhood!!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay - 4 adults, seasoned travellers!! Nina was very responsive to any and all requests. Location is great - a suburban experience less than 10 mins from the action of Boston!! We used our Charlie Card everywhere!!! The collection of local maps and information pamphlets in the house was particularly welcomed and made our stay much easier to navigate...!

Quiet and lovely home in Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay in this Cambridge home. Beautiful furnishings, well equipped kitchen and comfortable living space were all perfect for a long weekend. Subway transportation is within an easy walk so no need for a remtal car while visiting. The owner, Nina, is responsive and helpful, especially so as she lives just upstairs. The home is located on a safe and quiet street, away from traffic noise and city life, although there are a number of restaurants within walking distance. We look forward to a return visit to this home away from home in Cambridge!

Well-appointed, comfortable and centrally-located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this very clear and well-cared for apartment. The house is in a quiet neighborhood with a playground across the street, which was great for our young kids. Our host was very conscientious and friendly and we definitely would stay here again.
