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.

Lovely, comfortable, convenient home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for MIT graduation and a wedding. The house was a great place to relax between festivities. Simple walk to Harvard Square (make sure to stop at Flour for pastries). The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Off street parking was also a definite plus.

Shared house for a Harvard Kennedy School reunion. Comfortable sleeping, good for entertaining and short walk to campus. Sarah was terrific to rent from. Lovely little patio off the kitchen.

Perfect New England Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were in Cambridge visiting some family and this house was perfect to stay in for the weekend. There were 5 adults, and this space was perfect for us. The location is great, it was super easy to get in and out. The host was very flexible and helpful. We would definitely recommend this to friends and would stay here again in the future!

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!
