The host was accommodating and easy to communicate with. They were very informative, listing a bunch of great places to try in the area. The apartment was well kept. The location is right next to Mass Ave, right near a T stop, so we could go where ever we needed to. Thank you!
Friendly, cozy, homey. Great location. If you are looking for luxury, this may be too funky for you, but I felt right at home. Scott checked in with me during my stay to make sure everything was ok (it was). In spite of a record-breaking winter in Boston the place heated up quickly, and snow was shoveled as needed. Neighborhood felt good, with cafes and restaurants and shops nearby.
The host gave quick responses to my questions. The room looked just like the pictures. There were enough kitchen utensils to make a meal, and the whole place was clean and cozy.
A great haven in the midst of another Boston snowstorm. We stayed here while looking for a longer term apartment and visiting MIT, and found it was a great, central location for exploring Cambridge (even when the T wasn't running). Scott was a very accommodating host & clear communicator. I'd say this is one of the better values on AirBnB for the area!
I lived in this apartment for a month and it felt like home. The location allowed me to walk to Harvard Square everyday and to meet my friends at the 'trendy' neighboring restaurants and bars by night.
The apartment was well equipped and the hosts were very helpful.
The apartment is cozy, clean and nice. You will find everything you need there for a pleasant stay. The neighborhood is very lively, with lots of shops and restaurants. Molly was a great host. I strongly recommend the place if you want to explore Cambridge and Boston.
it was lovely , the house was so welcoming and Molly left quite simple instruction to follow and great recommendations for nearby area
If you are interested in the place, let me know, and either myself, or my friend Scott, who is helping me with this site, will do our best to answer your questions. And if you choose to stay at my place, I know you will love it! I do.:)
