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 East Cambridge

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.

Beautiful house, great hospitality!

My parents stayed at Nina’s for a week while they were here to visit. Nina was welcoming and responsive to questions about the property. Great indoor and outdoor space for hanging out!

This was a wonderful place to stay - 4 adults, seasoned travellers!! Nina was very responsive to any and all requests. Location is great - a suburban experience less than 10 mins from the action of Boston!! We used our Charlie Card everywhere!!! The collection of local maps and information pamphlets in the house was particularly welcomed and made our stay much easier to navigate...!

Quiet and lovely home in Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay in this Cambridge home. Beautiful furnishings, well equipped kitchen and comfortable living space were all perfect for a long weekend. Subway transportation is within an easy walk so no need for a remtal car while visiting. The owner, Nina, is responsive and helpful, especially so as she lives just upstairs. The home is located on a safe and quiet street, away from traffic noise and city life, although there are a number of restaurants within walking distance. We look forward to a return visit to this home away from home in Cambridge!

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!
