This is a newly-updated well-maintained 2 bedroom condo in a classic Cambridgian three level triple decker house. We are located on the first floor (or 'ground floor' in European terms). It is in the most quiet and safest neighborhood in Cambridge, 1.5 miles west of Harvard Square.

The space

The prestine unit is located within 8 minutes of bus ride to Harvard Square (4 different MBTA buses pass the area with Apps to help with live tracking), in the Strawberry Hill district of Cambridge, MA. It is the safest neighborhood in Cambridge, very quiet yet very accessible to H. Sq or downtown. There is also free street parking just in front of the condo, which is very rare for Cambridge. One bedroom has a queen size bed and cabinet. The smaller bedroom has a full size sofa bed. The living room is equipped with HD TV, Wifi, Wireless Speaker, fans, and a sofa bed as well. The kitchen is brand new with all the necessary equipment. The bathroom is brand new and marble floored. A shower head and glass sliding doors.

We spent three very contented weeks in Chunbai's light and airy ground-floor apartment, which is well-situated in a quiet residential area in West Cambridge. Chunbai gave us a warm welcome and showed us around the apartment, which was spotlessly clean throughout. It is also both spacious and adequately and comfortably furnished. The bed is large and the mattress firm and comfortable. The kitchen and laundry appliances are all relatively new and easy to operate. The wi-fi worked well. The weather was mixed during our stay. The central heating kicked in during chilly spells and was very effective (if also a bit noisy). For the hotter days/nights there is an effective ceiling fan in the living room and an air-conditioning unit in the bedroom (however, we did not experience any height-of-summer heat during our stay, so cannot comment on that). We would happily return to Chunbai's home if the need arose.

Roger was an amazing host, the place was great, we felt like home! Roger was so easy and quick to communicate with and answer all our questions. Highly recommend and we would definitely look for his place whenever we might visit Boston again!

This was one of the best airbnb experiences I've had. The apartment is modern, clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful. And Chunbai was very friendly, responsive and helpful during my stay. I'm very grateful he let me stay at his home, and can definitely recommend his place to everyone.

Had a very nice long weekend in Roger's Cambridge apartment. Everything was as presented in the photos. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. The apartment was a few blocks away from a great cafe (Sofra) and a supermarket. We had no issues with parking on the street. It was easy to walk into Cambridge and to drive to Boston. Roger was quick to reply to texts and provided suggestions for activities and places to go.

Mr Chiang is a very nice host. He made us feel welcome and ensure us to feel at home. He made sure we know how to get around and show us the area around his place. We would stay with him again when we come back to visit. The place is comfortable and clean.

We did not meet Chunbai in person, but we corresponded often with him via email. We found him to be a perfectly pleasant, considerate host, who was attentive to our needs and very quick to respond to messages. We appreciated that we could check out 2 hours later than check-out time. Chunbai's apartment was absolutely lovely and very clean. It was exactly as described and as it appears in the photos, with an updated, modern bathroom and kitchen (no coffee maker and no toaster, but otherwise perfect). We did not cook very much, but we appreciated having cupboards and shelves stocked with basics like seasonings, cutlery, and dishes; we were told we could use anything in the fridge. One detail to which we did not pay great attention - and we should have in retrospect - was the lack of central air conditioning. There was an A/C unit in the master bedroom, which worked well; furthermore, the ceiling fan in the living room cooled the area sufficiently. The problem was the study, which we used as a second bedroom: it had neither A/C, nor fan. It was a very hot little room to sleep in, and the fold-down modern couch, while adequate for one person, was not very comfortable. The master bedroom, on the other hand, was quite comfortable. Our young child also appreciated having Netflix cartoons available on the big-screen TV in the living room. So overall, we would definitely stay there again, but we'd choose a cooler season for our visit.

We loved staying in this wonderful and welcoming condo. Although I arrived very very late the welcome was warm and I felt arriving at a good friends house. The condo was well equipped and the bed was comfy. Especially nice surprise was to have a supermarket only a few minutes by foot away from the condo. I would recommend to stay here to my friends travelling to Cambridge and I hope that the condo will be available next time we travel to Cambridge. My first airbnb experience and I am afraid that from now on, it only can get worse :)
