Great room near Harvard and MIT

Apartment - Private room · Brookline St, Cambridge, MA 02139, United States

The Space

This is a spacious clean room in a first floor apartment that has never had smokers. Full access to living room, kitchen and bathroom. Wireless internet. Walk to Central Square subway in 4 min, grocery stores, yoga studios, banks and abundant dining. Perfect for visitors to Harvard ( 15 min walk, one subway stop) or MIT( 5 min walk) and still only 3 subway stops from downtown Boston.

This is considered to be one of the most diverse neighborhoods of Cambridge, a city already rated as one of the top 10 US cities to live in. Central Square which is where the apartment is, hosts at numerous amazing restaurants, from vegetarian organic (like the famous "LIfe Alive") to fine Indian (the first Indian restaurant in Cambridge was opened here and it is still thriving) to Ethiopian, Algerian, Tibetan, Japanese, Mexican, American....really you name it. Then there are the night clubs including the famous "Middle East" where many musicians and bands started their track to stardom.
Then there is the Cambridge Theater where you can see an real play for $25. And the Dance Complex, serious fun and dance, and the numerous yoga studios and gyms..and the three grocery stores all within a 10 minute walk...four banks...did I mention all the local coffee shops?

And somehow you can still escape it all within a block into the beautiful residential areas or by the banks of the Charles River with full view of Boston's skyline.
Location, location and character, it's an awesome place to be! I have been here for 12 years and still love it every day!

  • The apartment is very well located, perfect accommodations in a quite neighborhood. The location is perfect, one block away from Central Station -- which allows to be in Harvard or MIT in less than 5 min. And especially, Biliana is such a great person, always willing to help!

  • Biliana was a wonderful host, very helpful and friendly

  • My grandmother and aunt came from Atlanta to visit me in Cambridge, and Biliana's place turned out to be a terrific place for them to stay! The location right in Central Square is great (I live in the same neighborhood), and really allowed my grandma to get to the T easily with her shaky knee. She and my aunt raved about how gracious a host Biliana was, and had new stories to tell each day about what they learned of holistic food or what adventures the two pernicious kittens had gotten into. They were impressed with how clean and welcoming the place was, and when I asked for their thoughts for this review, they were glowing. Thanks Biliana!

About
I am originally from Europe and have traveled extensively but have been a happy resident of Cambridge, Massachusetts for the last 12 years. I am a psychotherapist and a yoga therapist and I spend my very busy time between doing yoga therapy sessions, teaching, research and running a large therapy program in the Boston Public Schools. At home I like to to maintain a quiet harmonious and clean space for my domestic hours and my daily yoga and mediation practice. I am health diet and lifestyle conscious which is why I feel I fit so well in the Cambridge community. I also enjoy writing, swimming, surfing, skiing, hiking and dance. I look forward to meeting you and telling you more.
