We enjoyed this wonderfully decorated lovely place. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you need. We loved sitting in the garden and the breakfast in the porch. Elizabeth is a wonderful host and we lock forward to staying at her place again. Thanks a lot!

Everything was perfect. The kitchen is well equipped, the back porch looks out onto the pond in the conservation area and the neighborhood is quiet and safe.

The flat is wonderful; Beautiful decor, lovely back porch, well appointed kitchen. Located in a leafy, quiet neighborhood with good connections to transit, it was just great place to be. Elizabeth was great, helping us out with details and being a friendly face whenever we needed help. Just a great place to stay. Thank you so much!

Very enjoyable staying. Great tastes in decoration, fully equipment for daily life, thoughtful preparation on every kind of supply including food and cleaning stuff, nice garden and pond view, very quiet neighborhood! All in this new and clean condo. Lizzie is definitely the best Airbnb host! I will come back again for future visit in Cambridge. Thanks a lot, Lizzie. And good luck with your garden in this dry year.

My colleague and me stayed at Lizzie and Brian's flat for more than 20 days. The flat is amazing. Located in a quiet and friendly neighborhood, it is very clean and well decorated. And It has almost everything that one needs. The balcony has a wonderful view of the garden and the pond nearby. During our stay, lilies are in bloom. One morning a cute beaver came knock the back door. My colleague and I were so happy to live in this sweet home. We are truly grateful to Lizzie and Brian. And it'll be definitely my priority choice if I go to Boston again in the future.

Elizabeth personally welcomed us as we arrived. She showed us around the spacious, beautiful and clean apartment and gave us all the info we needed without being nitpicky. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed was quite comfortable and the back porch was the perfect spot for breakfast. We had a very relaxing stay. Thank you Elizabeth!
