  • Great little spot in East Boston

    "My husband and I stayed here in celebration of our anniversary. It was the first time we'd been away alone in a long time. And we weren't disappointed. This spot on Marginal Street is everything we expected; just as advertised. The owners are very pleasant and friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. John said he was available by text if we needed any advice while touring Boston! The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. And, it was so great to be so close to the T. When we first arrived we took a walk to the park down the road. This park was such a little gem with beautiful harbor views. Great for a picnic. The apartment itself was clean and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable. We only wished we had more time to sample all the great food in East Boston and beyond. As it was, our first night we went to Italian Express in East Boston right around the block. This place had a homey welcoming atmosphere. The second night we were in Quincy Market and sat outside to eat take out after a long walking tour of Boston. A walk to North Boston during the day was lovely. We also visited the North Church and a little printing press nearby where the proprietor re-enacts printing as it was done when the original Declaration of Independence was created . We went into Paul Revere’s house. So much history and we barely scratched the surface... Oh and don't forget the little bakery next store to Italian Express. We stopped her to stock up on pastry for the ride home. Thanks John and Melissa for being as advertised!"

  • Great stay

    "We really enjoyed this apartment. It was very well furnished, with excellent heating. We stayed with our kids over Thanksgiving Break. Although easy to pass-by because of its access, it's in a great neighborhood, close to everything a family would want to see, making sight-seeing very manageable. Convenient to a Whole Foods and CVS, as well as the quaint shops down on Charles Street. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with kids older than 8 (49 stairs to climb). Easy trip from the airport (about $20 cab ride) and very close to Boston Common. I'd echo all of Erik18's comments and "The Travellers" comments. I'd incorporate all of those here, especially those of the rent coordinator, who was very responsive. I would definitely rent this apartment again."

  • Beautiful and Spacious Apartment!

    "This apartment was lovely, and the owner was extremely accommodating. The pictures do not do it justice, as the ceilings are very high which makes the space seem even larger than it is. I comfortably stayed here with six friends. We made good use of the kitchen and the beds, including the sofa bed, were very cozy. The location of the apartment was fantastic- we were within walking distance of great sites, shops, and restaurants. Additionally, the parking garage was less than a ten minute walk away which we found convenient. Would absolutely recommend this apartment, and would stay again when traveling with a group in the future!"

  • Great value accommodation for a couple near Harvard

    "We came to Cambridge to spend some time with our son who is studying at Harvard. We were delighted with the accommodation at Murhouse - much more spacious and homely than a hotel room and with many more facilities. We appreciated the fully equipped kitchen which meant that we could have meals in the apartment. One thing we did miss was an electric kettle - guess this is a cultural thing because we are tea drinkers not coffee drinkers. Very comfortable bed but the fridge makes a bit of noise which was noticeable at night. Good bathroom and laundry facilities, nice and clean. Host was helpful without being overpowering. Location was very convenient - we used buses to get to and from Harvard and Lechmere and then the T to get into Boston - very easy. Maple Ave is a beautiful street, we loved the architecture of the houses in the area. We hired a car for a day and it was great to have parking. We would definitely recommend the apartment and hope it will be available whenever we come back to Cambridge."
