This was a great place to stay! The self-entry worked great, and though I never met Greg, he was quick to respond to requests and very kind and easy to deal with. The apartment is clean, well cared for, and very nice to stay in. Comfy bed, nice bathroom. There was fresh fruit and flowers awaiting me upon arrival. Great neighborhood with easy shopping and places to eat within walking distance. And being on the third floor, I barely heard a peep from anyone else in the building.
I'd stay here again and highly recommend the apartment!
Good location and rate, walking distance to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, bus and subway. Safe neighborhood with some charming shops and cafes. Comfortable bed and practical kitchen.
Greg initiated communication a few days before our arrival. He gave us clear instructions for checking in, and was great at communicating with us throughout our stay. I really loved the notebook of recommendations in the apartment.
As requested, he provided a portable crib, with crib sheets and extra blankets too! My toddler loved the board books and toys stocked in the apartment. We even were able to do a load of laundry, which helped us pack a bit lighter.
The shower is a little awkward, but we'd definitely consider staying here again when we next travel to Cambridge!
Great little apartment in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Very comfortable and clean, and we would return if in the area.
We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay at Greg's Charming Tree Top Abode. The photos and description of the apartment are accurate. Everything we would have needed was likewise provided for, including towels, toiletries and kitchen paraphernalia. The home is on the third floor so you would have climb three flights of stairs, which can be difficult if you have heavy bags or suitcases with you.
It's unfortunate that we weren't able to personally meet Greg but he was responsive through messages and calls, especially when we were having trouble with the lock of the back door entrance. Would definitely recommend this listing to family and friends.
This is the 2nd time that I stayed in the apartment in Cambridge. Greg was proactive in communicating with me, both for check in and check out.
The apartment is fairly close to Harvard Square, and the bus runs fairly regularly. It would have been about a 20 minute walk. The apartment is comfortable, quiet, and a great price. The bed is especially comfortable, which is something that I am not sure any other reviewers have commented on.
The middle room is where I spent most of my time, which has a Roku and basic TV.
The most important aspect for me is that there is a dedicated off-street parking spot in their driveway that is for the guests. Being recently relocated to Massachusetts, this was essential for my car. It's set back a little off the street, which is nice for security.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor, and does require climbing some old spiral steps. Keep that in mind if you have large luggage.
Overall, I truly enjoyed the place and would stay again. It was perfect for me and I really appreciated the hosts. Thank you.
I really enjoy staying at the "Tree Top Abode". The apartment consists of four rooms - kitchen, living room, and bedroom. The building is situated on a quiet, residential area of Cambridge, not far from Harvard Square. The most important aspect to me is that there is off-street parking in a driveway next to the property.
The apartment is quiet, clean, and very comfortable, within transit distance to the Red Line. Greg is very responsive, and very conscientious of the needs of a single traveler. I would highly recommend staying here, as it's very cozy. Plus, the bed is extremely comfortable (not a given at every place).
Thank you to Greg and his family for a pleasant stay.

About the Host, Greg
I spent most of my adult life traveling around the globe from my home base in Portland,Oregon... sometimes staying in people's house, sometimes just a hammock between two trees. I am currently indoctrinating my son to like these things so we can hit the road when he gets a wee bit older. My last trip was across India by bicycle. Good fun if you get the chance!
Since I've been in Cambridge, I've learned things that would be not possible while traveling, learning the guitar, making beer, perfecting my jerk chicken burritos...and I've grown to love this town...lively music scene, and the biking is getting better and better!
