About this listing
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!
Kat's flat is really nice and we liked it a lot.
We felt home and really confortable.
Otherwise the area of Cambridge is perfect for the evening to have a rest in different bars or restaurant. The description was realistic.
We were just a bit disappointed not being able to talk more with them.
David and Kat are great hosts. Their room was clean and comfortable. There is a great patio to sit on outside in the courtyard and they are open to giving you space or hanging out and chatting for a bit. We had a very busy schedule so we did not hang out with our hosts much at all but the accommodations were great.
Kat et David sont un couple charmant, nous avons été accueilli par David. Le logement est sympa très bien situé . Le bus est à côté et le métro à peine 10' à pieds. Le quartier est calme et les magasins pas très loin non plus.
The apartment is centrally located, well connected to the bus and train lines. We arrived quite late in the evening, still Kat and David were there to welcome us. They made us comfortable, whether it was helping us with directions or suggesting places to eat. The room itself is very cozy and looks exactly as it is shown in the photos here. Even though we stayed only for two nights, it was worth the money we paid.
Kat and David were awesome hosts. They made us feel welcome in their home and gave us some great spots around town to visit. Even took us to a couple of their favorite places to grab a bite to eat and drink.
The place was very nice, as described. The bus stop was conveniently located basically right out side their apartment. The area was great. Tons of bars and small shops in the area.
Would definitely recommend them to anyone using Airbnb.
Kat and David were away whilst we were staying here but did everything to ensure a smooth arrival process. The flat is in a great location, between Cambridge and Boston - we walked to both but there is also public transport nearby - as well as shops and restaurants. The room is as it appears in the photo and was comfortable. We briefly met Kat and David, who seemed really friendly and nice.
The location and room were perfect! Kat and David were very welcoming and helpful with things to do around Boston. Everything was clean and looked just as the pictures protrayed. Great place!

About the Host, Kat
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?
