Very pleasant experience. The apartment is huge, cozy, and close to Harvard square.
MC's place is, just as described, huge and sunny. Very nice apartment just a short walk to Harvard Square. While we never met, MC was always in communications, prompt to respond and made this stay a breeze. Would definitely recommend.
Mary Catherine's apartment was spacious, clean and in a great location for exploring Harvard, Cambridge and all of Boston. Communicating with Mary Catherine was easy and she responded promptly to inquiries. Instant booking takes out the guesswork when looking for a place as well. The flexible check in and check out times allowed us to have the place early which was very convenient. It would have been nice to leave our bags on our last day past 11 check out but we managed to find storage. Overall, Mary Catherine's place was a great space to relax after a busy day.
A super nice flat with perfect condition, in a ideal location. Harvard Square is right on the doorstep with plenty of nice restaurants and bars, and supermarkets. If you get the opportunity to rent this place you should not hesitate. Mary Catherine was very quick to respond and helpful.
Mary Catherine's place is perfect if you need to be in Harvard for any reason. We stayed there for five days with my wife. Walking distance to campus, the shops, the restaurants. The flat has an architectural elegance and a personal warmth that will make you feel you are someone's guest. Great taste, great neighbourhood. Not easy to park around, so better to arrive by cab.
The apartment is really spacious, comfortable, and in a great location. I had a great stay here for two weeks and would definitely recommend it. One thing that is important to know for long stays is that the wifi data is very limited.
We arranged to use this apartment over a weekend to accommodate my family for a visit to Cambridge. My niece wrote the following.
" Mary Catherine’s place is in a great location. The building is quiet and the apartment looks just like the photos on the site. We had our two children with us and we all felt quite at home. We would recommend this to others and would also stay there again in the future. There was a mix up with housekeeping (we straightened it out and all is well) so you might want to double check with your host to ensure that aspect goes smoothly."
I also loved the apartment. It is beautiful and the neighbors and superintendent were very welcoming. It is in walking distance of Harvard Square and the T. Not easy for parking. Ask Mary Catherine for tips on that subject. I plan to use it in the future for guests.
