I found myself needing an emergency room stuck in Cambridge. The Gods were with me directing me to Paul & Larry's "homey apartment". From the initial contact until departure, one would think I was visiting Family; and now I do consider myself part. From directions from the "T" (literally 5 minutes walk and FREE from the airport), the recommendations for restaurants and stores to the running paths around the Charles River. It changed my day from stressful to a vacation day.
The space is even better in person than the pictures. The kitchen is very large with everything one could need. From making morning coffee or tea to a person wanting to cook full evening meal, everything is there at your fingertips. Pots /pans, utensils , plates and even spices were ample and abundant. The living room / sleeping area is very comfortable. The wooden floors remind me of what a "real New England" house should feel like. Unfortunately the temperatures were a bit colder than what I am used to so I could not take advantage of the huge back porch area. When I come back to New England (in the spring,summer or fall) I will go out of my way to stay here again and morning coffee out on the deck will be how I start my day, for sure. A bit of heavenly tranquility in a city.
Leaving back to the airport was chore due to rescheduled flights, BUT Paul was kind enough to free up his afternoon to take me to the airport at a moments notice.
Overall I would rate this "stay" & "experience" a 10 out of 10. Could not have asked for more from my Aunt Martha. Cheers!
