Description

The space

Make yourself at home in this bright, warm 2 bedroom / 2 bath nest in the middle of all that Cambridge has to offer. Ideally located for walking to cafes, restaurants, and shops. An easy 10 minute stroll to Harvard Square passing right through Harvard Yard. Or a 10 minute walk to the bars and shops of Central Square. Very convenient living within walking distance of Whole Foods and several other grocery stores, as well as a 10 minute walk to the T - be in the heart of downtown Boston in 25 minutes! Perfect for sabbatical rental for academics visiting Harvard / MIT / BU / Tufts and other area universities.

The apartment itself is clean and spacious - on a corner, so plenty of light and overlooks a small children's park across the street which seems to be very popular with the Gymboree set on a sunny day! Enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony watching the neighborhood go by. Just off the main road, so you have both accessibility, but also quiet tree-lined streets.

There are two bedrooms available, each with comfortable queen sized beds, and closet space. Enjoy the wonderful open plan living room and dining and fully equipped modern kitchen. You will love cooking here! There is wifi and a flat screen tv with Apple TV as well as cable tv.

This is my main home though I only live here part time as I travel extensively for work. Seems a shame to let the place sit empty for so much of the time!

A City Street Parking Permit can be available through prior arrangement.

Other things to note

After a few years' experience, it is my policy to rent only directly to the person who will actually be staying in the apartment. This applies to anyone searching for accommodation on behalf of family, friends, colleagues, etc. In my experience, it's the best way to ensure a smooth and pleasant stay with clear communication and expectations for all!
Thanks!

This is my main home when I am in Cambridge (about half the time), though I will do my best to move most personal effects to the storage room so the place feels your own. Even though I may be out of town, my friend who is a professional property manager is available to help with any problems you have when you're here.

This is an apartment on the second floor of a three family home. There are 1.5 flights of stairs up to the apartment and no elevator available. Please, please be very considerate of neighbors both upstairs and downstairs - i.e. please remove heels when walking around the apartment, no zumba dancing, etc. :)

This house is NOT appropriate for large parties.

This house is not child-proofed - there are floor plants and small objects at low-lying levels, etc.

Also, no pets please due to allergies.

There is no smoking on the premises - including the balcony. Have a nice walk around the neighborhood :)

Please just leave everything as you found it. Don't forget to turn everything off, close the windows and turn the heat or a/c down before you leave. It's all about the Golden Rule...

Kelly's apartment is even better than the pictures suggest! It was clean, quiet, spacious and comfortable, it really did feel like a home away from home. The bed was so comfortable and the kitchen had absolutely everything you could wish for. The neighbourhood was very leafy and safe, and a quick walk into Harvard Square and to locals shops for supplies, or a short uber/train ride into downtown. Kelly was extremely friendly and responsive to messages, and when we had a maintenance issue she got it sorted at lightening speed. Check in and check out was quick and easy, the only thing I didn't like was having to leave! I would not hesitate to stay here again if I ever return to Boston - thank you Kelly!

The apartment is listed as described. Had a great time with my colleague staying here for 2 weeks. Great place to stay in the spring/summer because it is about a .8 mile walk to the T. Kelly was responsive and nice. Would stay here again!

Kelly was an attentive host and very responsive - she is clearly invested in making a stay at her great place exceptional. We ran into a few minor maintenance issues along the way and Kelly worked immediately to address them. This is a cozy place with a great kitchen stocked with all the essentials to cook a great meal to be enjoyed on the balcony.

We met Kelly beforehand and she gave us a complete tour, made us feel most welcome. The neighborhood was lively, great shops, restaurants and a very popular jazz bar right around the corner...easy walking distance to Harvard Square and public transport, the T

This was an absolutely seamless experience. The condo is beautiful and impeccably kept; the location is a perfect launching point for your Cambridge activities. Kelly is extremely responsive and helpful... and she even has a delegate who is in town and can be on hand when she is not. The beds are extraordinarily comfortable, and the porch is a wonderful, serene place to enjoy the neighborhood sounds while having a meal or a cup of coffee. I really cannot say enough good things about this place or the service.

Everything went very smoothly, from check-in to check-out. The apartment is gorgeous, everything was exactly as on the pictures, perhaps even better in person. Kelly did an amazing job on interior design with meticulous attention to detail--some furniture and household items are a piece of art. The beds are very comfortable, air conditioning works great, the living room/dining room is great to lounge in. The apartment was very spotless clean. The only thing I would change is I would put up black-out blinds in the guest bedroom, as current blinds filter the light, but the sun woke me up early. The area is really amazing, my favorite in the Cambridge area, with many great restaurants and cafes. Thanks, Kelly!

I travel a lot for work and pleasure, mostly around the US and in Europe, but have made Boston my home for the last 10 years. I love to cook for myself and friends (and finally have a great kitchen for doing so!) and appreciate the value of a cozy, comforting home base when I'm here. I hope others can enjoy it when I'm not!
