The eat in kitchen has been recently renovated with a deck over looking the backyard with Roses, Peach Trees, a Koi Pond, gas grill and a lot of PRIVACY even though we are only a block from Massachusetts Ave.
We recently installed a whole house water filter -meaning all of the water you drink and wash and bath with is as PURE as the water you pay for in bottles! This was one of the of big home investments made this year. So you can feel good about drinking from the tap! And even better about taking a shower or bath! I love clean water!
This place is - Super convenient, there is parking for one car, a bus stop on the corner. You can - Walk to just about everything you need, including The Capital Theatre - a great local movie house, the Maida drug store on the corner just a few feet away, Giles Fine wine and Liquor store just around the corner, fine dining as well as the Arlington Diner a local diner just across the street for casual meals, ZA pizza , dry cleaners- you name it and it is probably here! Even a great gluten free bakery!
We are just down the road from Harvard Square - hop on the bus foot steps from your apartment and in minutes you are in Cambridge or Boston - so staying here is relaxing - with out the congestion of the city.
Arlington is safe and relatively quiet.
Trader Joe's in Arlington Heights and Whole Foods is now open in Arlington Center. Yeah!
We used to own a B&B in Ogunquit, Maine and loved the experience. We are enjoying the experince of meeting wonderful people from around our beautiful planet!
This amazing Universe sent us our new kitty -
his name is Apollo, he's a cream Persian and he was a rescue - abandoned at 9 y.o. - now happily here! Love - Love - Love - is all he is!
All my best,
Interaction with Guests
We have our own private spaces - so - interaction is
We expect you to have FUN!
Try to leave the place as you found it.
If you need to leave your bags early - just let me know - check in is late afternoon.
The listing description was spot-on, the host was very welcoming and friendly, and we were comfortable in a beautifully decorated space. The kitchen was very well-equipped, a huge plus, and the host even left a couple of pastries for us when we arrived. An excellent place to stay.
This was our second time staying here, and we had a great time. It's a beautiful place.
We are now "repeat customers," because we love this place so much. My son loves the "booth" in the kitchen, and I love fixing meals there. I also love the cozy bedroom and magic garden. Most of all, though, I love how the hosts welcome us with little treats and awesome music playing when we first step into our favorite "home away from home." There is just something about this place that feels right!
This apartment worked out perfectly. It is in a convenient location and easy to get to. I enjoyed the unique personality of the place, and felt very comfortable. I plan on staying here again when I am back in the area.
The apartment was beautiful, and everything went smoothly. It made for a lovely weekend.
Daphne's place was absolutely amazing - the beautiful space was just what we needed at the end of each day to relax and be comfortable. In addition, the place was super close to public transportation, which made it really convenient! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Although our late arrival kept us from meeting Daphne, the pastries in the kitchen made it clear we were welcome. The apartment is zany wonderful! And we suspect it also serves as Daphne's photography studio, making it even more fun to imagine the photo shoots that had taken place there... 'Tho the wall prints leave little to the imagination! The ktchen is fabulous and more than "fully equipped". We could have hosted a formal dinner party with the serviceware that fills the cabinets.
With easy access to buses, the T, and free parking, the location is ideal for the entire Boston area. Our only regret: we would have loved to meet Daphne... She is obviously a talented, fascinating person.
Thank you Willaim for the lovely review - so glad you and your family enjoyed your visit - sorry I missed meeting you - it is amazing how quickly the time flies by. You are right I am a photographer and the space is my currant studio space! It works out so well - as a matter of fact - once in a while, when a guest is staying here on a work project, meaning they are gone all day, I have used the front rooms for a sitting! I give the guest a "rebate" and everyone is happy! Oh, and thank you for kind words - I appreciate them! Hope we all meet one day!
All the best, Daphne
