The space

This house is ideal for working professional, international visitor, visiting scholar and guest professor who is here for a short term or a month-to-month basis. Our home offers all the comfort and conveniences of the city at a fraction of the cost of being downtown.

The house is a quiet, super clean, well-maintained, owner occupied, in a safe, quiet neighborhood and very close to MIT/Kendall square/Technology Square/Harvard and downtown Boston.

This house is conveniently accessible between the two main subway lines. We are between the red line (Kendall Square station) and the green line (Lechmere station) subway stations. Therefore getting around town is super convenient. Both of the subway stations are within a 10 minutes walking distance from the house. In addition since we are so close to Boston and MIT, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from as well.

This room comes fully furnished (desk, chair, bed, linen, pillows, towels and one shared bathroom) with central heat, AC, WIFI, Cable TV and HDTV. This is a three stories building and we are on the top floor.

Amenities included
• Freshly brew coffee. If you are a big fan of tea we have a great selection of teas available for you to choose from as well.
• Hair dryer
• Fresh clean linens and towels
• Shampoo, soap, hair conditioner
• Iron/ironing board
• Kitchen privileges (cook your meals)
• On site in unit laundry
• Parking permit to borrow

Note: Whatever else you may need, please don't hesitate to ask us. Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable as possible :-)

Interaction with guests

We are more than happy to socialize, chat , provide recommendations (food, where to go, etc) and be around to help with whatever you may need. :-)

However to give people their privacy, we tend to stay out of your ways and be very quiet. The idea is we want to give you the feeling like being in your own home. :-) and be super comfortable.

Catherine and Pat's place is great -- so super close to Kendall Square. And they are both lovely hosts. I don't think I have ever been in a tidier apartment (including my own). Definitely will stay here again on my next visit to Cambridge.

This has become my favourite place to stay when in Boston for business. Cat and Pat are great hosts, the place is exactly as described in the listing and extremely convenient for Kendall Square/MIT.

Exactly as described in the listing. The room was very cozy and comfortable, and Catherine and Pat were gracious hosts who spared no effort to make me feel at home. Very close to Kendall Square/MIT. Highly recommended!

Catherine and Pat's place was awesome and they are super nice people from the little interaction I had with them. Unfortunately, I was very busy and mostly outside during my stay with them, so I didn't get the chance to know them more. A good and quiet location near MIT.
