This was a great place for me to stay for a couple nights in Cambridge. The room and bathroom were very clean and the building is quiet. Plus, the mattress was very comfortable! The deck is awesome and I enjoyed my coffee there in the mornings!
Doug is a great host, very friendly and inviting. The apartment is also a short walk away from good restaurants, coffee shops, the T, and a great used book store that replenished my reading stock for the plane ride home. I will definitely stay here again if needed and highly recommend it!
Great place! Excellent location and gracious host. Thank you Douglas! The apartment has everything you need and is very clean. The bed/futon is comfy. The balcony is great. Douglas was helpful and friendly. He has paid attention to a lot of details... There's a lamp and plug bedside, space in fridge, nice clean bathroom, fresh smelling linens, desk, fast wifi, mirror in bedroom, full-length mirror in bathroom. Staying there was easy and comfortable.
Great apartment in a great location and easy to get to and from. Apartment homely and clean. Doug is a brilliant host, both welcoming, and personable. Definitely recommend. (Thank you Doug).
Doug was welcoming and easy going. He was around to answer questions but not at all intrusive. Great spot.
Awesome host - and of course an awesome accommodation. We had a great time at Doug's place in Cambridge. It is only a 7 minute walk to the red line, so getting around is easy as can be. Doug is a very attentive, friendly and communicative host - he even took us with him on a Friday night to grab some beers. We will gladly stay with Doug again when in Boston.
I had an excellent stay. The apartment is very nice, clean and tidy. Doug is an great host. Highly recommend!
