Comfort and Location! This charming Cambridge apartment is on the first floor of our 2-family home on quiet, pretty Hollis Street, steps from Davis Square (Somerville) and Porter Square (Cambridge), within walking distance to all the universities and main attractions of one of the most vibrant communities in the US! You won't need a car - we are steps from public transportation to Boston, its colleges and medical centers, and all surrounding communities.
The apartment is perfect for visiting faculty or graduate students and their families interested in a longer-term rental of a month or more. Additional bedrooms in our "Tree Top Suite" are available on our third floor, connected to the first floor apartment via a stairway, for an additional charge. Just ask if you need more than 2 bedrooms for your stay. See the third floor photos here:
The first floor apartment itself is a tastefully furnished two-bedroom, with a dining room, living room, study, one full bathroom, walk-in closet, and a newly-renovated eat-in kitchen. There is one queen-size bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other bedroom, so it sleeps four. The kitchen is fully equipped; there is a large flat screen TV; cable and Wifi, and a washer and dryer in the basement. Our photos say it all…this is a cozy (but roomy), comfortable place to stay while you are in the Boston-Cambridge-Somerville area. Whether it is for business, pleasure, visiting the area colleges and universities or medical centers, you will feel at home on our quiet street just steps from busy Massachusetts Avenue.
You have the whole apartment for yourselves, with your own front and back entrances. You have your own washer and dryer in the basement. Sit out on the back porch and yard and enjoy the garden! There is limited on-street parking. Ask me about longer-term parking options. My husband and I live upstairs on the second and third floors.
Interaction with guests
We respect your privacy. On the other hand, if we can help you figure out what to do and how to get around, just ask!
Other things to note
There is a pretty Catholic Church on the corner of Hollis Street and Massachusetts Avenue, with church bells that ring throughout the day (but not at night). Other places of worship are within walking distances or accessible by public transportation.
Consider combining your visit to Boston/Cambridge with a trip to Cape Cod - we have the perfect vacation rental for you in Harwich Port. The link to our charming cottage is on my profile page.
Please, no parties, smoking, pets. I don't charge a security deposit. I trust my guests to take care of the property, and reimburse me for any damages that might occur.
