This rental is effectively a studio apartment as part of the 2nd floor in a 3-floor building. It consists of a private bedroom, private eat-in kitchen and full bathroom in Central Square on the second floor of our house. The bedroom is extremely convertible. Two travelers can have separate beds. If you're a couple we can unite them side by side with a king size sheet.
Our house is a 6-7 minute walk from the subway (Central Square), a 5 minute walk to the bus on Mass Ave, a 5 minute walk to parts of MIT and a 15-20 minute walk to Harvard Square or to Boston in the other direction. If you're a runner, there's a good 9-12k path from our house and around the river. For local cycling, a Hubway bike rental station is a 5 minute walk from the house. There is a driveway for your car also. It is rare that our weather is hot enough to warrant a/c though if that occurs, we'll quickly install a window unit for you. The TV in that room will also function as a computer monitor if you need a larger screen.
Since you'll have your own private kitchen, we'll not make your breakfast. However, if you let us know ahead we will stock some breakfast items you like. We can also give you a lift to Trader Joe's, only 5 min away by car. The kitchen has a coffee maker, hot water pot, blender, toaster over and microwave. Basic cooking utensils and dishes are also provided. If you need more, just ask. If you wish more explore the bakeries and restaurants nearby, Yelp is very strong around here for giving recent reviews.
We are in a 100-year-old Victorian house originally constructed as a multi-family dwelling, typical of that time. While we have made some updates, some history remains, e.g., the claw-foot tub. Even though we're in an older building, don't worry...we have updated systems. In the winter, you can stay as warm as you like. There is a great back porch overlooking a 50-foot maple tree; this has proven to be very popular with guests. The house isn't perfect...it's an old building! However, there is good karma to spare. The second floor bath is shared with our home office during daytime hours. If you're here for more than a couple of days, we can show you the laundry room.
We are neurotherapists as well as working musicians, one opera singer and one pianist. We can provide a loaner Korg or Roland keyboard for practice if you need. Check out our website: (website hidden)
For guests, we give discounted brain-brightening sessions.
We're happy to share suggestions about our favorite restaurants and shops nearby.
Despite our urban setting, our neighborhood is quiet, particularly at bedtime. It has always been the kind of neighborhood where women can walk alone safely at night.
The subway, locally known as the "T", is a 7-8 minute walk away. The bus is a 5-6 minute walk.

This was a great home base!
Great little apartment, comfy and quiet and so convenient to all in Cambridge. Thanks again Larry and Paul for the hospitality. Excellent little place.
Nice apt with a great location. Hosts were very good and even got me some milk for coffee in the morning.
Hosts were great! They were personable and helpful with lots of good suggestions.
Paul's place was excellent for the price and the area. Warm, cozy, and in a great location if you want to walk to and from Kendall Square or MIT. I would recommend this place to anybody coming to Boston.
Paul and Larry are fantastic... the house hold a ton of original historic details. Lots of space, a comfy bed and a well stocked kitchen. Great value for the quality of the space and the hospitality of the hosts. I look forward to staying again.
I had a very comfortable stay here. Paul and Larry are excellent hosts. Would definitely return in the future.
I recently stayed there for couple of days. It is very close to T station. The place itself meets all your needs including small kitchen etc. I didn't get to spend too much time there as I was out all day and came back only to sleep. Both hosts were very nice!
Both of the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. The locations was great a few minuets walk to the train and plenty of local restaurants for an evening meal if you do not want to cook. I would defiantly use again when visiting Boston.
Lots of light, very nice hosts.
