About This Listing
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 -

All my best,

This was a most amazing retreat -- close to the main drag, but quiet and relaxed. The music that greeted us when we first entered was delightful. The furnishings were comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and easy to use. Our hosts were warm, friendly, and altogether delightful. The location was the best -- the first morning we walked a mile down to an organic breakfast restaurant and then shopped our way back to the house. It was centrally located for all of our needs -- visits that ranged from New Hampshire to various places around Boston. So great. Hope to return.
This is a wonderfully situated apartment that is close to Harvard Square and perfect for my meetings at MIT. I met Daphne briefly upon my arrival but everything was seamless. The neighborhood is residential and quiet at night. The bed was very comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was awesome. The bathroom was stocked with plenty of toiletries so other than toothbrush and toothpaste (although that might have been there; I didn't search)- you need not bring your own. The apartment was very clean and I could not be happier with my choice.
What a lovely stay! We received a very warm welcome from Diane and spent a very happy week in Diane and Daphne's magical apartment. The kitchen facilities were excellent (how many places have a Vitamix!), the bed extremely comfortable and the garden bursting into bloom with all the spring flowers. We were in Arlington for a week on business and it was always such a pleasure to come back to the apartment at the end of long and rather stressful days. Had some very interesting conversations with Diane and she was always so helpful. The location is extremely convenient and the neighborhood very safe.
Daphne's apartment was just fantastic! Great location, very well priced and Daphne was a delight to work with!
The apartment itself was spotless and spacious. Bed was great, the kitchen was awesome. I would HIGHLY a recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
As usual Daphne was a wonderful hoststess. She was very helpful with shopping and places we needed to go. The place always makes us feel warm comfortable and stress free. Thank you sooooooooo much!!!!!
