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.

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, out of respect for our neighbor below. Lastly, we ask that no one bring animals. That's about it. Thanks so much.
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.
Nice, spacious place in a very convenient location. Super close to Whole Foods, which was appreciated! Very close to Charles River, and a lovely walk to Harvard Square. We would certainly stay here again.
The home was as promised, very comfortable and well located to explore Boston and Cambridge with convenient shopping nearby.
Bon accueil via airb@b. Nous n'avons pas vu la propriétaire.Mais elle répondait sur le champ à nos questions.
L'appartement est vaste et agréable. Propre. Le quartier est bien placé à proximité du métro, évitant de circuler en voiture dans Boston. L' accès à l'appartement a été très simple sur les indications claires de Kimberly. La carte de parking pour notre voiture de location etait bienvenue et en évidence sur la table à l'arrivée. Nous lui avions posé la question du parking.
Seul bémol:des voisins qui semblent pointilleux. Nous avons été d'une grande discrétion et ils ont trouvé une remarque à faire, qui consistait en quelques gouttes d'eau renversées sur le palier...
A noter que les fameux voisins ( non vus) ne sont pas des modèles d'ordre eux même.
Merci Kimberly d'être à l'écoute de vos locataires.

We are recent empty-nesters with 4 grown, very cool kids. We live in Cambridge and Vermont and are new to Air B&B. We look forward to sharing our home with interesting people from around the world. Someday we plan on being the ones who are traveling the world.
