About Victor Oppenheimer
I have owned the Cambridge property for around forty years. During that time I have taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, run a successful software company, studied and taught yoga around the world and been the proud dad of my two sons. I spend the winter months in Cambridge and the warm summers Maine Lake.
Why Victor Oppenheimer chose West Cambridge
I chose this property for it's beauty, it historic location and its propinquity Fresh Pond with its peaceful natural beauty and the culturally rich offerings of Harvard Square.
What makes this Apartment unique
I love the house's design. I am told that the design was originally created by its first occupant, an emissary from France to the USA. I also delight in its location and its expansive and private back yard and decks.

What a wonderful find!
Victor''s place is so conveniently located, and the apartment is wonderful! He made our stay very easy and very pleasant. We will absolutely look to rent from him again when we return!
Nice spacious studio apartment near good public transportation
This apartment has everything you'll need for a good stay. The owner is on site and is extremely friendly and helpful. There is some street noise as indicated in the listing, but it is quite similar to my own home so I was not troubled by it at all.
Charming, perfect location, nice host, all things needed regarding bath and kitchen faciilites
I was attending a conference and needed a place to stay in Cambridge at a reasonable price for 4 nights. Victors charmingly decorated studio apartment turned out to be a good choice - also for a person travelling alone, as the neighborhood seemed safe and friendly. Upon my arrival Victor kindly explained all practical details of the place and pointed to some shops and restaurants close by.
Besides episodical heavy traffic on the road next to the house and a fridge that was quite loud at times, I found everything right in order for relaxing and sleeping after a long day about town.
Busses ran regularly at three minutes walking distance, but I enjoyed walking to downtown Cambridge by foot, which took about in 30 minutes. This was a great way to enjoy the amazing houses and surroundings and get to know Cambridge. I also enjoyed running along the fresh pond.
I would recommend the place to people travelling by them selves or couples.
