About this listing

One bedroom available -- shared large, sunny, living room, new kitchen. Great location - four blocks from Cambridge line.

The space

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 up to two cars,
the bus stops on the corner. You can take a 15 walk or take a short 5 minute car ride to Alewife Public transit and Fresh Pond shopping mall.
It is a delightful and interesting neighborhood - Walk to just about everything you need, including a great local movie house, The Capital Theatre, the Maida drug store on the corner just a few feet away,
Giles Fine wine & Liquor store just around the corner, several fine dining restaurants as well as the Arlington Diner, a local diner just across the street for casual meals, ZA pizza , a variety of ethnic restaurants, coffee shops, laundermat, dry cleaners, post office and several boutique shops and interesting children's workshop places. 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, just 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. Bus #77 goes to Harvard Square(10-15 mins.) where you can connect with transit to Boston. Bus #79 takes you directly to Alewife Trainsit ( 5mins.) You can buy a train pass there.
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 experience of meeting wonderful people from around our beautiful planet!

Peace, Prosperity and Pleasure,

Response from Daphne:
This is a two family house with two separate apartments. The entire first floor apartment was rented out for airbnb guests. The second apartment is not rented out.

It is a comfortable, well equipped space in walking distance to shops and restaurants in Arlington and easy access to greater Boston. We stayed here with a 1 yo and 2 small dogs. Plenty of room for all of us in the bedroom and living spaces. The hosts went above and beyond with how well the kitchen and bathroom are equipped with creature comforts (eg, shampoos, coffee creamer, etc). We were there over Christmas and they even had some lovely and delicious baked goods waiting on us. Very welcoming. Only note of caution to parents with young kids is it takes effort (shade providers and sound machines) to seclude the sleeping area for naps and make sure you check out the artwork in the pictures the host provides.

Daphne's space is truly magical. You feel like you've entered a zone of tranquility and enchantment. Besides the great vibes, the apartment is clean and delightfully decorated with a fun Victorian aesthetic. The hosts even included some servings of fruit and a delicious pumpkin cake. They are responsive and warm, even troubleshooting a squeaky smoke detector late one night with good humor and with success. I look forward to my next visit!
