The space

***Please keep in mind that this is a typical house in Cambridge, that is a bit old and therefore has the wear and tear of an older home ie. loose door handles, scratches on floor and/or walls, perhaps stains on wooden floors, etc. It is very cozy and a lovely home, but again it just has an older feel so if you are looking for something modern or spotless, you may want to look elsewhere. Just want to be completely honest and thank you for your interest in my listing!

The place is spacious and full of light. It was not clean when we arrived but the host sent the cleaning crew for another cleaning. It is a bit further from everything than what we expected and we therefore decided to rent a car. It is a place with loads of potential, if you have a car fairly close to Harvard square etc.. The host was very responsive and we appreciated that.

This apartment is a very spacious place with great natural light. It is as advertised, a bit old and imperfect. It is also a fine place for the money.

Spent four nights here. Everything worked out fine. Didn't use the appartement for much more than sleeping. But there's all you need to make yourself comfortable for an even longer stay...a huge kitchen, dining area, living room, even garden. There's a bus stop around the corner, but we even strolled thru the very neat cambridge neighbourhood into harvard once. The place was clean and easily accessible.

We had a really great stay! Place was clean and as advertised. Accommodations were overall comfortable. Neighborhood was quiet and in close proximity to some really great places in Cambridge, Somerville and downtown Boston. No complaints!
