About Nina Quinlan

This is my second vacation/short-term rental. My daughter and I take great joy in setting them up, making them as delightful and homey as they can be.

Nina Quinlan purchased this condo in 2007

Why Nina Quinlan chose Boston

This property is charming and in a quiet area of Cambridge, yet a six-minute walk from both the Green and Red Lines, a 15-minute walk to Boston, hop skip to Central, Kendall and Inman squares. There is more music and more International restaurants here than you can shake a stick at and the major highways a stone's throw, making it convenient to get to the woods, mountains and beaches.

Well-appointed, comfortable and centrally-located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this very clear and well-cared for apartment. The house is in a quiet neighborhood with a playground across the street, which was great for our young kids. Our host was very conscientious and friendly and we definitely would stay here again.

Lovely home, wonderful host, and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely - comfortable, elegant, a mix of styles that all works, with everything you need to settle in. The location is great - 15 minutes from Northeastern, Harvard, the airport....and in the midst of restaurants. On top of that the lovely owner Nina, makes sure you have everything you need including a parking pass, which is critical in Boston to avoid multiple tickets. We plan to make this our home away from home when back in Boston!

Great holiday weekend in Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

Everything we wanted or needed was included with this Cambridge apartment. The main reason for the visit was to meet our new granddaughter, and this was a great place to use as our home base. Nina was very helpful throughout the process, and she has done a very nice job making this flat a comfortable and inviting space. The location is convenient for anything in East Cambridge (from the riverfront to Kendall Square), and it would be a great spot to stay if visiting MIT. Thanks Nina for the great information on restaurants and things to do in the area! We may be back if the fates allow. Thanks for everything!

Great place to stay in Cambridge - VERY clean and comfortable, convenient location, well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights while visiting Harvard and the Boston area. The property was exactly as advertised and as described in other reviews - very clean and nicely furnished, quiet location, excellent for up to 4 people. The beds and bedding and the towels were new, very good quality and comfortable. The kitchen, bathroom and laundry were well-stocked with anything you might need and the spacious living room was a great place to relax in the evenings. Both bedrooms had window air-conditioning units that worked well. The owner was very helpful and accommodated our request to arrive early in the morning (we arrived at 6 am on a red-eye) for only a small charge. She had lots of recommendations for restaurants in the area and plenty of tourist info as well. She even sent back a couple items we managed to leave there. Thanks Nina for a great stay!

Fantastic place to stay - hidden gem, charming, clean, very comfortable & convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Gracious owner welcomed us with much appreciated cookies, chocolates, wine & flowers to her immaculately clean 1st floor 2-bdrm unit. Charming, quiet, very private property w privacy fence & covered front porch w table & chairs, perfect for enjoying a quiet evening & coffee in the mornings. Lots of space/large rooms & natural light from many windows, very comfy beds & nice decor (so much better than pics). Nice kitchen w anything you may need. Very convenient to walking everywhere, to MIT campus, tech companies, short walk to the river, the T or to catch an Uber to Boston or the airport, close to restaurants & local stores - Will definitely stay here again & again. Thanks for everything Nina - you were a great host!!

Very nice place, convenient and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Nina was super conscientious about making sure we had what we needed - especially the pass for street parking, which turned out to be very key for us. Also if your kids are like ours, and don't want to deal with restaurants for every meal, the kitchen was set up well enough to allow us to eat in without problem.
