The Space

It's a great two bedroom apartment right in Harvard Sq! One bedroom has a queen bed (tempurpedic), dresser, TV and closet. The other bedroom has a queen bed (tempurpedic), a couch that folds out, a dresser and closet. There is a full bathroom and fully equipped kitchen for cooking. There is also a great private deck for your use!

The apartment is private and there are 3 bikes (with locks and helmets) that you can borrow.

Harvard Square is a great neighborhood- lots of cafes, shops, restaurant and night life. Luckily my house is just outside of Harvard Square on a quiet street in Cambridge. The apartment is very close to the Charles River, which is a great place to jog or bike ride. Cambridge is a wonderful place to visit, I'm sure you'll have an amazing time!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment was very nice and clean. The teeny renovations of the kitchen and bathroom added a modern clean look to the space. As other travelers mentioned, the location was superb, with restaurants and pubs and the T within easy waking distance. Banks street itself was very quiet, and welcoming. The semi-private deck was an excellent place to unwind with friend s after long days of exploring. Monica was very accommodating with check-in and check-out times. I recommend this property!

  • Monica was a fantastic host and we had an excellent stay at her Harvard Sq apartment. We had everything we needed, and Monica was incredibly flexible with check in/out times. I would highly recommend Monica's apartment as a great place to stay during your visit to Cambridge!

  • Such a romantic apartment, nestled in the colorful (springtime) treetops, with a constant soundtrack of birds happily chirping outside the window. The apartment has two bedrooms with comfortable beds, a (small) kitchen with table, lots of space to store your things, and a big deck. Well-stocked with cleaning supplies, etc. Location could not be better: steps from Harvard Square. Highly recommended. We hope to be back soon, thanks Monica!

  • This apartment was very clean and tidy, with fresh sheets and plenty of towels for all 5 of us. I appreciate that Monica was flexible about check-in/check-out time, and that she made parking our car there easy by having the parking permit and a map of street parking ready. It seemed like she went out of her way to make the stay easy and enjoyable for us.

  • Great location and well priced. Cute little apt in an old building. Great roof top patio with BBQ. Monica was easy to communicate with and accommodated various needs.

  • Monica's apartment was just great for my family during the summer. It has a great location. My family and I enjoyed walking or riding bikes at Charles river or in Harvard sq. Furthermore, the public library is so close that we walked to there and read books. The place was just perfect for a family since Monica had everything we need inside it. It was great to have barbecue party in the deck outside, which is totally private. I will strongly recommend this place for a family who will stay in Cambridge more than a month.

  • Monica is wonderful. She was always very helpful, trying to fix problems in the house, and to provide all things that we required. She provided nice bicycles for the whole family. This was great.
    The apartment needs some renovation, but was perfect for our needs, has a nice terrace and all facilities, and the location for Harvard or MIT is fantastic,
