The space

Our apartment is on the 1st floor of a 3-deck Victorian house, - very convenient to bring in your luggage, and very cool in summer months.
We are located in a very quiet street, you will sleep like a baby!
Room and house are decorated in a friendly, cozy manner, with softly painted walls and hardwood floors.

Guest access

We have a fully equipped eat - in kitchen including a dishwasher and microwave to make life easier, and our own washer & dryer in the basement, with no added cost.
We will provide you with bedding and towels of course!
Apart from normal TV, we have Netflix/ Huluplus / etc, so you can watch your favorite series or a movie.
Internet is available wireless in the whole house, and a wireless printer/scanner if you need to print a ticket.
We have 2 bicycles (medium and large adult sizes), let us know if you'd like to explore Cambridge on them!
PARKING: on the street, only for residents, so we will give you a "Visitor parking" tag to put in your car.
If you are an explorer, you will also be happy to hear we've got a good New England guidebook for you to browse through!

Interaction with guests

We love to share a morning coffee before we all set off for the day... and we adore cooking with people, learning about other foods and preparations, and dining & wining...
And, if you are into beer, we love to have an occasional local brew at one of our favorite beer spots, we'll be happy if you join!

We have a dog, a 6 - year -old mix breed, something like border collie - terrier - something mix, very well home - trained, no barking, no bothering. She does like to be petted :), and will return the favor with multiple licks!

The neighbourhood

The Inman Square, around the corner, is the lively center of our neighborhood, with a range of restaurants, bars and one of the best ice cream parlors in town - Christina´s! You can have a wonderful burger or fish'n'chips at the Irish pub (Druid), a pizza on the corner (All Star), or a 'fancier' dinner - we love Tupelo for southern-US treats, Oleana for middle-estearn, a number of places for oysters... The square also fulfills the service needs of the neighborhood - a post office, various shops...check out Boutique Fabulous for gifts! For groceries, Wholefoods is a short walk away.

Getting around

We are 10 minutes to Central Station (Red Line), and a 10 minute bus ride to Harvard square, and Lechmere station (Green line final station in Cambridge).
There are several other buses that stop close by, taking you to Porter Square, MIT, Boston University, and the Northestearn University (at Ruggles).

Other things to note

We are happy to host couples for short stays (a long weekend for example), but for longer stays we are limited to single travelers. We are open to longer stays (up to 3 months) upon discussion.
