Great Host--very helpful. Location worked for us; we had rented a vehicle and could readily access family on Fernald, and also Porter Square and Harvard Square. Lake behind apartment was great fun hiking for grandchildren. Interior of apartment was attractive and comfortable. Surrounding area is a bit commertial but plus being you have a Whole Foods nearby...
I came to Cambridge for a relatively long 9-day business trip, and I'm thrilled I stayed in Lizzie's apartment. It was so cozy and comfortable, I felt at home right away, and continued to feel that way the whole time I was there. The apartment was spotlessly clean, pretty, and well-lit, with much more space than I expected from seeing the photos. Perhaps my favorite feature was the heated towel rack in the bathroom! Lizzie and her husband were very sweet and welcoming, too. All in all, my stay couldn't have been more pleasant.
Lizzie was warm, welcoming and very accommodating. Her description of this lovely, light, tastefully-decorated, well-appointed flat was accurate. The neighborhood was attractive and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, cozy, "home away from home" and with family nearby, hope to come again.
My husband and I stayed at Lizzie's flat for two weeks. It was perfect. The pictures and descriptions of the flat are accurate, the place is very comfortable and homey. Easy access for biking and walking , twenty minute walk to the T, and a beautiful garden to top it off!!
Lizzie is a very good host, helpful and yet discrete.
We will be back.
We had a great stay at Lizzie s house. Everything was perfect.The house is super clean, confortable and very well maintained. We arrived at night and when we woke up, what a big surprise! I just want to stay at the porch! The garden is so beautifull and the view from the porch.....wonderfull! The kitchen has everything you may need and much more! From appliances to spices!!! I couldnt believe it was for me to use! And every of the 8 days we stayed there I got fresh greens from the garden.... wonderfull, wonderfull,wonderfull! Lizzie was a great host, very communicative and she did everything possible to make our stay the best! Very flexible! Thanks a lot Lizzie! Will be back!
All I can say is that one gets spoilt after staying at Lizzie's designer flat because it is difficult to find a matching accommodation elsewhere. She was a great host and very helpful indeed. If I need a place to stay in future in Cambridge, I would wish her's is vacant and available.
