About The Owner

This was my family's old home and I live in it occasionally during the year. I love this area and particularly like being close to the river, Harvard Square and the metro system, as well as easy access to the suburbs.

Wonderful stay - even better than photos!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed by this wonderful rental in Cambridge! The location is incredible, the home is spotless, comfortable, larger than the photos show, updated, and fully stocked. There is a ton of natural light and plenty of space to spread out without feeling impersonal. Wonderful flow and attention to detail.

We were a group of 5 adults with 2 toddlers and an infant and had more than enough space. The house was kid-friendly but still classy and functional (think: low, round cocktail table, sturdy/soft couches and chairs, kitchen island bar space for high chairs, etc.).

Two parking spots in the driveway was another big benefit since street parking in the neighborhood is primarily resident only.

Sarah was responsive and very easy to deal with - although there were no problems to address at all! In fact, once she found out that the cleaning crew would not be coming until the day after we were scheduled to leave, she proactively reached out to let us know it would be fine to stay as late as we would like instead of having to "check out" at the standard 12 noon time. Her practicality and generosity was so refreshing and unexpected!

In summary, this is one of the best house rentals I've ever done - totally worth it! Thanks Sarah!

Cambridge Dream Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

If I could pick my dream city house, this would be it. Beautifully updated with old New England charm. Perfect for a family group with a roomy common area and well-appointed eat-in kitchen. Also a small outdoor patio--perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The location is perfect, too! A lovely neighborhood with only a 15-minute walk to Harvard Square and the Red Line. The owners were great to work with and there were no snafus. We highly recommend this property.

Clean, bright and sunny!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay in Cambridge with river views.

The house has a new kitchen, as well as 2 1/2 new bathrooms. We were very happy guests! Walking distance to Harvard Square, shopping, museums, and restaurants. Surrounding neighborhoods are breathtaking, can't wait to go back. Almost forgot to mention the private patio off the kitchen and one of the living rooms where my daughter and her husband did their workouts every morning. Heavenly!
