About the property

Lovely 2-Bedroom Apartment With Patio And Back Yard Nestled On The Garden Level

This lovely two-bedroom apartment with patio and back yard is nestled below a cute cottage-style house. It offers families, business travelers, and couples a spacious place to relax and a convenient neighborhood in which to reach shops, restaurants, Harvard university and Boston's many attractions. Tufts university and the subway at Davis square is a short walk away. 20 minute commute to Boston commons / Freedom Trail. The Cambridge lodging unit contains a full kitchen, dining area, living room, full bath with tub and shower, and two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a full size bed. (Please note: the smaller bedroom with full bed is toward the front of the house below ground level and does not have windows.) There is an additional queen elevated air mattress for extra children. It is easy to park on the street with a permit that is given to you upon arrival. All linens and kitchen items provided. No breakfast provided. There is a kitchen.

In winter, we rent this apartment monthly unless it is short notice.

Perfectly fit out needs

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, convenient parking, close to a Laundromat and easy to get to the attractions in the Boston area. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and we felt safe at all times.

Great place if you'll be out and about in Cambridge

  • 4 of 5

Great eating establishments nearby and close location to Higher synthesis Health offices. Wonderful walking paths just out the door! Somewhat kid friendly but not technically baby proofed for those needing that safety. Overall, great stay option!

Major Maintainence Issues

  • 1 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and were not able to use the toilet or shower for the last 2 nights. when ever we needed to flush the toilet, it would back up into the bath tub. Maintenance came in on the 4th night, but were unable to fix the problem. Every time one of the water heaters came, they were so loud we had to turn up the volume on the t.v. On the 4th night, the tenants upstairs arrived and it sounded like a herd of elephants. Very annoying to say the least.

Owner's Response: This is peculiar. We contacted the guests about this review but they did not respond. We did not hear from them until the night before they departed. We sent maintenance to unblock the toilet drain that evening. Why could they not shower for 2 days and why did they not contact us earlier? Why did they not contact us about the tenants above? Our water heaters are not loud. Marie

Excellent value

  • 4 of 5

This Cambridge apartment is located on the ground floor of a multi story house. It is spacious and clean with comfortable furniture and beds. Not fancy, but homey and pleasant. Plenty of kitchen supplies for making and eating simple meals, and a nice patio. Convenient and pleasant 10 min walk to the red line. We took this to Harvard Square daily and to the airport (only 1 hour travel time, and under $3 per person).

The only real negative is the night time noise from upstairs - it sounded like heavy furniture being moved at 3 am. If the management can resolve this issue I'll give 5 stars next time I visit.

Owner's Response: We are happy they enjoyed their visit. The guests above may have been noisey. Generally there are families who are quiet. We will check into this and so sorry we were not notified of it while they were in their unit Marie
