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.

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.

Really tidy, cool place within walking distance of MIT. Local restaurants were great!

  • 5 of 5

The flat is tucked in a classic Cambridge neighborhood - the owner has done a really nice job on the place. It's very tidy, warm and comfortable. She put a lot of thought into what visitors need when they come to a new place. Coffee and cream, an iron, lots of towels, good wifi and a wonderful gracious attitude made the apartment perfect! The place is within walking distance of MIT, and transit lines. It was a 10 min ride to the airport and the North End. Perfect location!

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

The first floor was exactly as expected and was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a short walk to the subway lines and only a couple of minutes away by car from a supermarket (star market). We were greeted by Nina who made us feel welcomed. The oven broke when we were there and she had it fixed for when we came home the next day - a fast response. Cambridge is a nice place with lots of play parks for the children (with water splashes - take a towel!). Boston is a lovely city and the area around is worth exploring by car. I can recommended lobster in Rockport. All in all a great holiday with great accommodation.

Beautiful and great location !

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! Thank you Nina for your gracious hospitality. We were met with fresh flowers, wine and fruit. This is a perfect location for a 5 minute walk to the T-Lechmere station. From there you can go almost anywhere! Super safe neighborhood and Nina has lots of suggestions for restaurants, coffee shops and other fun sites! Loved every minute of our short stay. We'll have to come back and stay longer next time! Thanks again Nina for everything !!! Aloha.

I can't thank you enough for the nice note you left me and the amazing condition in which you left the unit - saved me oodles of time and was so very kind of you. Truly wonderful having you and I will look forward to your next visit!! Cheers - Nina

Fabulous home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Love this Place!!

Nina is a gracious host! Providing us with great tips on the area and restaurants.

The space is lovely, the location convenient. Just blocks from the red line and green line, in and out of Boston. Resides in a quiet neighborhood. The decor is very nice and the unit is well stocked with anything you could need including complementary fruit bowl, bottle of wine and delicious cookies! Equipped with comfy beds and roomy living spaces.

As a fellow VRBO operator I picked up a hosting idea or two!

We will return and stay again! Highly recommend :-)

Thanks Nina!
