The space

Gorgeous apartment in the ideal Cambridge location! It's a spacious and well-laid out one-bedroom - perfect for a couple. It has a nice size living room with incredible sunlight. It's in the tallest building on our street, so from the couch, we see treetops out of all four living room windows! The bedroom has a full size bed, an enormous closet, AC, and 2 windows. Even the bathroom gets sunlight so bright that you feel like you're showering outside! The kitchen is awesome - marble countertops, dishwasher, etc. There are also hardwood floors throughout (minus kitchen and bathroom). There's laundry and bike storage in the basement and a shared yard to boot!

Because we often get asked: we have a full-size bed in the bedroom, which is perfect for a couple. When one bed is not enough, we host guests in the living room on our very comfortable Crate and Barrel couch (which is slightly narrower than a twin bed) and on our top-of-the-line full size air mattress.

We're smack between Harvard and Central Squares - so real close to both T stops and the #1 bus. A 5 minute walk from Harvard Yard, 3 minute walk to the new Cambridge Public Library, and 7 minute walk from the Charles River. 20-25 minutes walk from MIT (or a ~10 minute bus ride).

Nicole's place was the perfect base to explore both Cambridge and central Boston. It's only about a 10 minute walk from Harvard Yard, and is surrounded by local amenities - like bars, supermarkets, cafés and the T (subway). It's also pretty huge, and was very clean. Nicole had le…

We lived in this flat for nearly four months during the winter and spring, and grew to love it. It is small but very light, bright, warm, quiet, safe and incredibly convenient. It is also unapologetically homely, well loved and well worn. If you want modern and sleek, you may be …

You can't beat the location if you like Harvard. The place is central yet very quiet. We are very sensitive to the light and you almost never need electric lighting, daylight is great. It was the perfect size for us as a couple. I highly recommend it

We thank Nicole for being a great host. We travel with a baby (less than a year old) by car, so we had a few questions about storage of crib and parking before visiting. Nicole answered these quickly in detail, which helped us a lot! The location of the apartment is particularly …
