The Space

Elegantly designed traditional style 1 bedroom in a 2 bedroom private apartment in the heart of Harvard Square. Take a street view on our AirBnB page and you will see that we are located in the heart of the square. The bath room is shared with one more person.

Located right next to the Cambridge Commons and Sheraton Commander Hotel, this is a well maintained building in Harvard Square.

  • Very nice two bedroom a few blocks from Harvard Square and the T. Sofa in living room was comfortable for our 5th person. Gennah was very nice to deal with, and gave us good restaurant suggestions for Cambridge.

  • We had a lovely time at Gennah's place. It was perfect for our needs. Spacious, clean with everything you needed. Even toys for our little boy. The best playground in the city is right around the corner, as well as a great park and very close to Harvard Square. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone!

  • This was a fantastic apartment and true to listing. The reservation process was smooth. The Check in/out Instructions were clear and easy. The apartment was very clean and set properly upon my arrival which was quite appreciated.

  • Together with two friends I spent one week in Gennah's apartment at Cambridge.
    The apartment is very good located, close to Harvard Square and just on the opposite of Harvard Law School. It was clean, nice furnished and equipped with everything we needed. My friend who slept on the additional folding bed seemed quite happy too.
    Gennah was always very friendly and helpful. Everything was very good organized and ready when we arrived.
    Thank you very much again, Gennah!

  • Gennah was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. She stopped in to say hello on our first morning and allowed us to stay a few hours over the check out time as we waited for our flight. I would recommend equipping the kitchen with a new coffee maker (the existing one clogged up) as well as more eating utensils (could only find one dinner knife), small plates and glasses. Also the AC only cooled the living room and the bedrooms were stuffy on a couple of the warmer evenings we were there. I would definitely stay here again though - the location was unbeatable and the apartment was clean and nicely furnished.

    Thank You Angela. Your suggestions are well received and already on top of it to take care of the necessities.

  • Gennah was a great host. Her apartment in Harvard was a good choice. What you see is what you get. I would definitely repeat the experience. Gennah was welcoming and always available.

  • Very nice apartment - 10 min walk from Harvard Square - Gennah was very flexible in our waiting for us in our arrival time

  • Great place. It was just perfect for what we were looking for. We were two couples going to Boston for a Grad School reunion so the apartment had the perfect location. The place was very clean and comfortable.

    June 2014
  • The apartment was very lovely and convenient walking distance to Harvard Square and the T station. It was easy to find parking in the area, too. And the amount of space we got was perfect for two couples + a baby to stay in.
