2 Bedroom apartment with additional futon in the living room. Apartment is now cat free and cleaned by a paid housekeeper.

The Space

Important! I only rent out the place when I am out of town. That is the occasional weekend and vacation time. If you are looking at dates more than 6 months in advance and the whole calendar looks open, that's probably just because I haven't blocked it off that far in advance yet.

You'll have a 2 bedroom apartment to yourself in Brighton. There is a futon that flips out in the living room and extra sheets are in the closet if you'll be using it.
There is ample on street parking - No Resident Sticker Needed!
We are only 1 block away from 2 bus lines.
We are within walking distance of 3 playgrounds and the Charles River.
There is a washer and dryer in the basement for use.
The apartment is one of three in a house that was converted into condos.
We hope that the murals on the walls inspire your creative side.

I will respond by phone or email to all guest inquiries. I am often out of the apartment and state before guests arrive.

The Neighborhood

It is a family neighborhood, in a part of Brighton that is NOT overrun with undergrads.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Me and my famz had a great stay at Sarah's place.
    Awesome location close to Harvard U and few minutes to downtown Boston. Nearby stores and gas station plus! Affordable and parking was easy as well.
    Enjoyed the amenities provided and loved Sarah's creative art walls.

  • Sarah kept me updated on everything I needed to know about my stay and was very easy to communicate with. Place was clean and nice and a short distance from Downtown Boston and the surrounds. Would be happy to stay here again on my next trip!

    Good thing to know: if looking for a good breakfast joint, check out The Breakfast Club. It's less than a mile walk from Sarah's and the cutest retro restaurant with delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. As far as I can tell there's a line out the door all the time, but it's not as bad a wait as it would seem and it's worth it anyway.

  • Sarah's house was full of humanity because she really live there. There were everything we need to stay. There were many toys for her son also. We loved her paints and photos on the wall. It seems that I invited to her home as a guest.

  • A great stay. Sarah was very responsive. The apartment is great--has everything you need, is really interestingly decorated and painted, and has plenty of room. Parking is easy and the location is great too--close to Cambridge and Boston, with nearby stores and supermarket. Was perfect and easy and a nice place to stay.

  • My friends and I had a great stay at Sarah's. We only stayed the night but check in was smooth and easy. We loved the artwork and creativity! Parking was easy as well. Great location for a very affordable price. Sarah was very responsive and I would definitely stay here again/recommend it!

  • We wouldn't recommend the apartment.Although it was good located, we didn't enjoy our stay. The cat acted like a devil and hissed when we came to close to here. She sat the whole time on the table so that we couldn't use it. The apartment wasn't cleaned especially the toilet.

  • Great home. Very nice place, and very spacious. Cat wasn't friendly to one of our friends, but it was fine. To the rest of us, cat was friendly. Clean place, and close to surroundings. We drove so there was always parking by the house. Went for a morning jog by the river too. I don't remember how far away it is, but it was like a 1.5 min drive or less.

    October 2013
  • We stayed in Boston for one night and Sarah's place was delightful, inexpensive and easy to get to. Her home is located near the supermarket, restaurants and is in easy walking distance of Cambridge tourist area. I recommend Sarah's home.

I love to paint as you'll see when you stay at my apartment. Many of the walls are covered with unique murals we've painted. I have Portuguese listed as a language, I'm conversational but not fluent.
