The Space

A Truly Comfortable Home Away From Home

When we're not in Cambridge, we're in Vermont. Our comfortable restored 3rd floor condo has a relaxed Vermont feel – lots of light and original art. Our home is very clean and well loved. It is a home away from home for those who need to be in Cambridge for a short period of time.

There are three bedrooms and two baths. Each with a double or queen bed. Each has space and exceptional light. 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My friends and I were visiting Boston for a bachelorette weekend & wanted to find a relaxed and comfortable place to call home. We were absolutely THRILLED with Kimberly's apartment. It was beautiful, spacious & allowed us to escape the bachelorette festivities with style. The location was ideal! And the check-in/check-out process was super easy. Kimberly is also kind, responsive & very accommodating - even when you lock yourself out 5 minutes after arriving! I can't recommend Kimberly's gem of an apartment enough.

  • This was our first time using airbnb. We came up to Boston for some work that we do with one of the nearby colleges. Kimberly's condo was perfect for us. It is conveniently located in Cambridge, just a 10 minute walk to Central Square. It was very clean and spacious for the three of us. It was a little tough to find parking on the street nearby, but the permit that Kimberly provided was extremely useful. Thanks for a great week and we hope to be able to stay there again in the future! I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a nice place to stay while visiting the Boston/Cambridge area.

  • Kimberly's home was perfect for our extended family. Comfortable bedrooms, plenty of shared space to relax and enjoy each other's company, a nice kitchen and great location. She left us plenty of linens, towels, clear instructions, and was open, generous and very prompt with any questions we had. We would be very happy to rent her home again.

  • My family and I couldn't stop talking about how much we loved Kimberly's home. It was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, clean, and in a great location. Had a rental car but walked to Central Sq to use the T. Loved having Whole foods a block away. I did not meet Kimberly but she was very kind and helpful via email. I highly recommend Kimberly's home. We definitely want to return in the future.

  • Great apartment! Very clean, comfy and a terrific location to Harvard campus, about 10 minute walk. There is a Whole Foods Market a block away, along with a drug store. Whole Foods has a hot breakfast buffet every morning for less than $10. I would highly recommend this apartment! You won't be disappointed.

  • Great place to stay. Kimberly was a fantastic host and easy to work with as our plans changed. Good location (easy walk to T stations, Whole Foods, etc.), good neighborhood, comfortable, and the wifi was great.

  • This place is great and convenient -- not far away from subway station and next to a Whole Foods supermarket. The rooms are clean and cozy while the facitlities maintained in a good condition. The host is very nice. We encountered an unexpected problem in getting the reservation confirmed and processed. Kimberly had been working closely with us to get the problem solved. We very much appreciate the assistance and responsiveness of the host. Overall, we enjoyed a good vacation in Boston and the stay in the apartment.
