Cambridge apartment description

Recently renovated, airy, first floor apartment with lots of light in a beautiful, safe and friendly neighborhood very convenient to Harvard, Tufts, and MIT, Boston University, Boston College, and other schools. with short 5 minute walks to everything - restaurants, shops, grocery store, Porter Square, which is the nearest subway (“T”) station (Red Line). The subway ride is 5 minutes (one stop) to Harvard (or you can walk to Harvard Square in about 15-20 minutes), 12 minutes to MIT, and 15 minutes to the MGH/MEEI hospitals. Boston University, Boston University Medical Center, the Longwood Medical Area and Boston College are all a 20-minute drive away. There is a big, beautiful park and playground 2 blocks away and a free outdoor swimming pool at about a 10-minute walk.

A great feature of the apartment is a huge, brand new eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, high-end appliances, marble, and views and access to a nice back yard, barbecue, and outdoor table when the weather is good. The place is nicely furnished and the bedrooms each have very comfortable and fairly new queen sized beds. Sheets and blankets, towels, kitchen items (including essential cooking needs like oil, spices, etc), and most everything you would need is supplied. There is a private washer/dryer in the basement downstairs. There is free wireless internet and a nice flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player. Parking is readily available but you also don't need to drive since the subway is so close and will take you to just about any neighborhood in and around Boston.

This apartment is only used as a short-term rental, not as our permanent residence. My wife and I live in a separate apartment on the second and third floors upstairs in this charming 115 year-old, two-family house. We would be more than happy to give you advice on the neighborhood, where to go for necessities and what to do for fun, but you will also have complete privacy.

THE APARTMENT IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON A SHORT TERM BASIS DURING GRADUATION SEASON (April-June) / MINIMUM 4 NIGHTS. Rates for a maximum of 4 guests are:

April 2014:
$300/night +100 one time cleaning fee and $300 refundable deposit

May-June 2014:
$350/night + $200 one time cleaning fee and $300 refundable deposit

Note: We have inflatable mattresses and we can add up to two additional people at a rate of $50 extra per person per night.

Please provide us with information on yourself and others who would be staying with you and some idea about your plans for your stay. You will love this place! Thanks.
