Quiet, roomy, comfortable, great location! We loved this way more than staying at a hotel. Dawn was great at answering any questions we had!

This unit is fantastic - very large, open space, much larger than I expected from the pictures. The kitchen is stocked with a hot plate (no stove) and toaster oven, as well as all of the cooking utensils you might need for a longer stay. The location is great but does require either a bus ride or 15ish minute walk to the nearest T station. Dawn and her family are great and very friendly - highly recommend for a longer term stay!

The place is big and clean! We had a great time staying at Dawn's place! It is also very close to Harvard. A great choice for a short Harvard visit!

We had a really wonderful stay at Dawn's studio. It's open and airy, is centrally located and equipped with everything we needed to be "home away from home." The furnishings are clean and modern, the bed is GREAT, and Dawn was a warm and accommodating host. The kitchen is equipped with a toaster oven, microwave, cooktop, electric teapot and all the table top stuff anyone would need in case you want to stay in instead of go to all the great restaurants in Cambridge. A truly beautiful studio, perfect location, close enough to walk to Harvard and explore the cute neighborhood shops and great restaurants close by. Couldn't have been better!

This large studio was exactly what my fiance and I needed while we were having some repairs done to our home. Dawn was a great host and the area was perfect. Short walk to Inman Square and just a few minutes longer to Harvard Square. Access to laundry in the studio was a huge plus. I was disappointed there was no TV but I brought my laptop so, in the end, it didn't matter. I would definitely recommend!

The beautiful photos of the studio are accurate to what it looks like in real-life. Very easy walking distance to Harvard Square, and as I was there to do coursework, it was so convenient to go to class, and return to a nice comfortable quiet place to study. The one small surprise to me was the smallness of the kitchen area, but once you get used to it, it totally works! I was able to do a lot of cooking while I was there (you just can't cook tons of food at once, but meals for one or two are completely doable). Very friendly and attentive and not at all hovering. Great experience!

Response from Dawn:
Jim, you were a pleasure to host and a perfect guest! So glad you enjoyed your stay and accomplished what you needed to do at Harvard. If you do indeed find yourself in Cambridge again looking for accomodation, I will want to show you the 2 loft apartments (right above the studio you stayed in). Full and bigger kitchens! Have a great fall --Dawn & Matt

Dawn User ProfileDawn is a superhost.

We are from Seattle and Chicago areas of the USA and happy to have settled in a beautiful home in Cambridge that we can share with others. We've backpacked and travelled across Europe, Latin America, Asia and 1 great-American cross country road trip. We want our guests to feel at ease in beautiful surroundings and able to enjoy and focus on whatever brings them to Cambridge. We purchased this property in August 2015 from a 5 star host and strive to maintain that standard.
