Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfectly organized, this spacious apartment is centrally located in Cambridge. An elegant place so much more comfortable than hotel roooms you have seen too often.

  • Mary Catherine's apartment is enormous and gorgeous, and incredibly well-located for anyone who needs to be on Harvard's campus during their trip. (Not to mention it's less than a 10 minute walk to the best breakfast sandwich in town, at Darwin's on Mt. Auburn). We had a few minor hiccups with communication getting me into the building and figuring out the WiFi, but I knew ahead of time that Mary Catherine was out of town and I had made my reservation on very short notice, so I knew there might be a few minor hitches and they weren't a big problem. The place was quite neat and clean even though I was following up on another set of guests who left right before I arrived, and Mary Catherine was fair and flexible about the price based on the particular conditions of the visit. All in all a great place to stay, and I'd definitely go back again!

  • Mary Catherine was very responsive. If you are looking to experience Harvard Square, one could not ask for a more convenient location. The apartment was well appointed.

    As the apartment is in an older building, the heat is controlled building wide, and was very warm. Minimal noise from adjoining apartments.

  • The apartment is spacious and comfortable, and the location can't be beat. We visited Cambridge with our two year-old daughter; across the street from MC's apartment is Cambridge Common, a park that is also home to the best playground in Cambridge. Communication with MC was excellent for most of the process. We did experience some miscommunication when we arrived in Boston, but MC took responsibility and is an excellent and fair host. We hope to return the next time we are in Cambridge.

  • Mary Catherine is such a gem! Her place is beautiful, perfect location, decorated with such style and grace! She was so helpful and responsive. Everything was as she said it would be and she was a phone call or text away with an answer to any question we had. I will definitely stay with Mary Catherine again if I am in Cambridge and highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a home away from home well visiting Cambridge!

  • Mary Catherine was a super responsive and helpful host, and her apartment is amazing. I booked Mary Catherine's place for my brother who was visiting me in Cambridge - I live in Cambridge, and her apartment stands out as one of the nicest I've seen. A park is right outside her building, and the subway is just a little beyond the park - it's perfect walking distance from the river and business districts. There weren't instructions for dealing with keys and cleaning, but Mary Catherine was amazing about answering our questions. We loved it!

    June 2013
  • Catherine was such a great host and was very quick to respond to all my communications. Her apartment is in an amazing location and was the perfect home for my parents, who came to visit me in Cambridge for my graduation. Thank you so much for all your hospitality!

  • Mary Catherine's apartment is beautifully decorated and in an excellent location. We really enjoyed our stay here! Mary Catherine responded promptly to all our questions and was very helpful.

    June 2013
  • Mary Catherine's apartment in Cambridge is beautiful - a vast, one bedroom space covered wall to wall with art deco posters and beautiful paintings. It had ample space for relaxing, dining, and looking out over Cambridge Common across the street. Mary Catherine was an excellent host, and was extremely flexible with my arrival/departure times, and was always a text message away when I needed to stay in touch or ask for sightseeing recommendations. I would definitely stay here again when returning to Boston!
