About the Property

Homey Apartment Located In Bustling Harvard Square By Public Transportation

The unit is a great studio space with separate kitchen, and a really neat breakfast nook (with under-lighting!) that's a perfect spot to work, eat, or just hang out at. It gets fantastic light during the day, and is bright and homey at night.


- Queen Bed
- Desk
- Television with cable
- Full Bath
- Full Kitchen with Coffee Maker, Refrigerator, Oven, and Microwave
- Laundry
- Stocked bookcases
- Free WiFi
- Free Netflix

The apartment is located on Garden Street. It's quiet, leafy street that's just steps from the MBTA Red Line, and all of the bustle of Harvard Square.

Harvard Square itself is a fantastic neighborhood with a lot to do, plus easy access to downtown Boston.

The MBTA Red Line is right nearby, and there's parking all over Harvard Square (garages or street parking, whichever you prefer).

Getting in and out is easy. We won't be there when you're there (though you can always get in touch). Cleaners will be in before you arrive, and you'll have keyless entry 24/7!

Please get in touch about any special requests such as transportation from and to the airport, etc. Bookings include the legally required 14.45% MA taxes.

Harvard Square is a bustling historical area near the center of Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States, at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue, Brattle Street, and John F. Kennedy Street. It is the historic center of Cambridge.

Adjacent to Harvard Yard, the historic heart of Harvard University, the Square (as it is sometimes called locally) functions as a commercial center for Harvard students and residents. These residents use the Harvard T station, a major MBTA Red Line subway and bus transportation hub, for access to downtown Boston and the surrounding area.
