Basement with washer-dryer, exercise machine (elliptical trainer with a computer to watch shows or films), back porch with table and chairs.

Interaction with Guests

We love to welcome our guests whenever possible and we are always happy to say hello, hear how their visit is going, and answer questions they may have about sights in the area or more general issues. But the suite is independent from our own part of the house, which ensures our guests full privacy.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is both well connected to Harvard university and all kinds of sources of entertainment. At the same time, it is quiet and family-oriented and very safe. In addition, parking, a problem in some parts of Cambridge close to campus, is very easy on our street. We provide a permit. It's in the suite, easy to see.

Getting Around

If you have a car, we provide a permit that enables you to park in our neighborhood. It's in the suite, easy to see. There is ample parking on our street. If you have no car, the T stations Harvard and Porter Squares are about at a 10-15 minute walking distance. A bus line on Mass Avenue is about 5 minutes away. it is easy to get to the center of Boston.
If you prefer to bike, there is a Hubway (bike sharing program) station about 6 minutes from our house.

The size of Cambridge makes it a perfect city to explore on foot and easy access to the subway and bus enables you to enjoy Boston as well.
