"We stayed in Murray's comfortable suite during a visit for our daughter's graduation. Loved the neighborhood, and the house is so charming. Great location- close to Harvard or coffee or green space. Sure, you could hear the neighbors a bit, but I think that is all part of the charm of staying in an older home. Everyone was really friendly, and Murray was an attentive host. I would definitely stay here again , as well as recommend Murhouse Suite."

"The apartment is on the second floor, with rather steep stairs. The third bedroom is actually a loft that is reached through the second bedroom. The arrangement was perfect for our three grandchildren. The apartment is very close to Inman Square,. We recommend that you buy a Charlie Card with unlimited bus and subway and take bus # 83 or #91 to and from the Central Square T station. From there it's just a few stops to central Boston. This will save a long walk down Inman Street. Other than an overhead light out in the kitchen and the ice maker not working, everything was fine (There were ice trays). All necessary utensils were provided; and although there was only air conditioning in the kitchen and the third bedroom, fans was provided in the other two bedrooms, which we found quite adequate. We appreciated having coffee and sugar left in the apartment."

"For the cost and conditions, this condo was perfect for two couples. It was clean and comfortable, in a good neighborhood, an affordable cab ride to downtown Boston and walkable to Harvard, MIT and several good restaurants and stores. My only complaint is that the people staying in the other rental above walked around a lot very loudly and were walking back and forth all morning making sleep difficult. I would still recommend staying here as the noise depends on the renters. This condo made staying in the Boston area affordable while meeting quality expectations and I would stay here again."

"I highly recommend this apartment. Carolyn and Bill are extremely friendly and accommodating (even allowing a later departure on the scheduled exit date, and this was highly appreciated). The apartment is really very nice. Very comfortable, especially the queen sized bed and modern, particularly the kitchen with state of the art appliances. I was there for a weeklong course at Harvard, and the location of the apartment is very practical - a three minute walk to the metro station, a five minute wait and ride to Harvard Square, and then five minutes walk to my final destination. Couldn't have been any better! For sightseeing in Cambridge and Boston, the apartment is perfectly situated. Many great restaurants in the vicinity if you wish to eat around the neighborhood. My only recommendation would be for Carolyn and Bill to consider a tv/cable, for those of us who are news fans. Otherwise, perfect and highly recommended."
