Our warm and inviting space is a cheap and pleasant place to stay in the Boston area. A comfy memory foam bed awaits in a cool neighborhood with a fun pub just down the street.
Note your window overlooks our courtyard which results in a quiet night (no street traffic noise).
Come stay with us! Our second bedroom is brand new, my partner David put in the hardwood floors himself. Painted a serene blue and with windows on our courtyard, this room is an escape from the bustle of Cambridge. The room is very private as it is on the opposite side of the apartment from our bedroom (with the living room in between). Up one flight of stairs, you have a great view of our lush green courtyard!
The room has a full-sized bed with memory foam mattress pad, private entrance, plenty of space, and WiFi. You are also welcome to share our living room with a couch, dining table, refrigerator, and full kitchen in case you don't want to eat out every night. I will say we are not home most weekends and when you inquire I'll let you know if we will be away,
Feel free to borrow one of our many board games or lounge outside in our shared (but barely used) courtyard. You must share the bathroom with us, but it is clean and was completely remodeled this past fall. We put in the best shower possible, people even write about it in reviews.
Accessible by the Lechmere T (13 minute walk) or the 69 bus which loops from the Lechmere T to Harvard square conveniently pausing in front of our building. Walk to Inman Square for shops and bars (8 minutes), or down to Kendall Square (18 minutes). Also, parking is available and free. Grocery store is also only a 5 minute walk.
Check in and check out are VERY flexible and I am free to help you plan mass transit routes or fill you in on parking! Coin operated laundry in the basement - you can use my detergent.
A great, inexpensive place to stay if you are visiting MIT or Harvard (David commutes to Harvard daily). Also Boston accessible if you just don't want to stay IN the city. Not only will you have a relaxing and accessible place to stay, you'll have hosts who love to host!
Interaction with Guests
We love chatting with guests! If we are home during your stay we love hearing about your day in the evenings, but if you don't feel like chatting that is OK! If we won't be home during your stay I'll tell you at booking.
No smoking and no pets. Relax and enjoy, but please don't eat our food. Please turn off the lights and air conditioning when you are not home.
If I'm not home you can just leave the keys on the table and lock the handle as you go.
Have a great time in our city!
This is the first time that we come to the United States house, for the first time the experience of airbnb.com. The landlord is very warm and give us enough freedom and personal space. Building good geographical location is very easy to take the subway.
This was my first Airbnb experience. And it was a good one! The place was clean and very nice. Cute as a button. Perfect for one or two who need to be close to MIT/Harvard. Also, the details that Kat left were very helpful. My short Cambridge experience was made even better by the personal touch such as favorite places to eat and places to go.
I would stay here again in a second.
This was already my second stay at Kat's place. I really enjoyed being there. Everything was perfectly clean and the bed is great. Bus stop, a small supermarket and a pub are close by.
Great place to stay!
Notre séjour chez Kat a été très agréable. La chambre correspondait tout à fait à la description.
L'appartement est situé en face d'un arrêt de bus, ce qui est très pratique pour se déplacer.
Pour le soir, Davis Square situé à 15 min en transport en commun compte plusieurs bars pour les étudiants !
Kat a su être disponible pour nous tout au long du voyage !
N'hésitez pas à vous y arrêter :)
Kat was a very nice host. She and her boyfriend had little time, but they organized everything very well. From the beginning we had the impression that we were very welcome. Thank you for that experience, Kat
This was my first stay at Kat's place and I will have a second one, because I started my trip in the USA in Boston and will finish it in Boston.
It was a great first stay and I'm looking forward to the second one. I could even keep the keys between the stays.
My husband and I were in Boston for one night and Kat was awesome! She allowed us our own keys and even gave us her parking pass so we did not have to worry about where we parked. She advised us on places for dinner, and was very welcoming. Their was a private entrance and AC for our room.

I'm a fun-loving musician who recently moved to Cambridge. I work in donor relations by day and do music by night. My hobbies other than music include indoor rock climbing, half-marathoning, and rollerblading. My husband David and I are renting out our 2nd bedroom to pay for my part-time MBA at UMass and save up for our next home.
I like to learn something from every person I meet. What will you teach me about life?
