About this listing
This spacious, cozy apartment is available for longer term rentals for professional stays in Cambridge. Its perfect for families or shared space with colleagues. You can't go wrong.
This is a beautiful, spacious, light-filled penthouse condo on the the third floor of a six unit building.
Our home is very clean and well-loved. It has a relaxed Vermont feel with lots of light and original art. It is a home away from home for those who need to be in Cambridge for a month or longer.
There are three bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom is large with its own bathroom and back deck which looks onto two tennis courts.
Each room has a queen bed and large-sunfilled windows. This is a family place so it is extremely comfortable and welcoming with a sense of quiet and privacy. You can get away in your room or gather in the open kitchen, dining, living room. There is a front porch garden for our herbs and tomatoes and a back porch with Adirondack chair, table and chairs, looking onto two newly redone tennis and basketball courts below.
Our place is ideally situated. Down the street is a Whole Foods and steps away are cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants. We are a 10 minute walk to Harvard Square and 18 minute walk to MIT and an equally easy walk over the BU bridge to Boston University. A block from the Charles River, and a 5-minute walk to Central Square (MBTA subway access), where you have easy access to Boston and all it offers. You don't need a car here though a parking permit is available as needed.
The kitchen is fully stocked. There is a coffee machine, wireless, books on the shelves, Netflix television access and cable. It really is home away from home.

Interaction with Guests
I'm always available for help.
This is a wonderful and diverse neighborhood that is easy access to everything you need in Cambridge and Boston.
You won't need a car. I highly recommend walking or Uber subway or bus. All so easy. A car is great for getting out of town. Parking for long term stays means parking in private parking up the road. Cambridge is strict about non-residential parking after two weeks.
We ask that our guests not smoke on the premises, including outside on the porch. We also ask that our guests take their shoes off before entering the apartment. Lastly, we ask that no one bring animals. That's about it. Thanks so much.
Kimberly was a great host in providing information timely and all amenities. Place was just as described and location was very convenient. The parking permit was a huge help. This worked wonderful for our family.
Kimberly was fantastic! Great communication and extremely easy to work with even after a booking error on my part. Her place is just as described, probably even better. The place worked absolutely perfect for 3 couples. An easy walk to the T, and it was so nice having Whole Foods only 2 blocks away. A great airbnb host and we would definitely stay at her place again.
Kimberly was very kind and accommodating. Her home is clean and neat but still incredibly comfortable. When some issues with the building came up, which were beyond her control, she was very apologetic. It was a great experience.
Kimberley's house in Cambridge is absolutely lovely. My husband and I stayed there with two other couples for three nights while traveling through the US and it was a perfect size for all of us with three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a huge kitchen and good size living area. Kimberly gave clear instructions for locating and accessing the premises which were easy to follow and we had the the place to ourselves. The house is conveniently located 10 minutes walk from the subway so getting around was very easy, and whole foods is just over the road. I highly recommend Kimberley's property if you are looking for somewhere spacious, in a good neighborhood and good value for money.
Comfortable and convenient place for a professor, postdoc, and grad student to stay while meeting at Harvard.
Vielen Dank Kimberley,
wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt im Apartment.
Es ist groß genug für 6 Personen. Die Lage ist hervorragend, speziell wenn man auf Vollwertprodukte in BioQualität steht. Das Apartment ist sehr sauber.
Wir haben auch alles schnell gefunden, den Schlüssel usw.
Leider haben wir Kimberley persönlich nicht angetroffen. Dafür waren wir erstaunt, wieviel Vertrauen der Gastgeber in seine Gäste hat.
Wir würden bei unserem nächsten Besuch das Apartment wieder buchen.
Beautiful apartment, ideally located in Cambridge near a large number of amenities. Cannot state enough how beautiful the apartment is. Really enjoyable stay.
