Come stay in one of the most elegant and centrally located condos in Cambridge. I am located between Harvard and Porter Square, 5 minutes walk from the Harvard Law School and just 10 minutes walk from Harvard Square.

The space

This study holds an extremely comfortable sofa bed, a desk, and an antique dresser for your use, and looks out on an exclusive garden and patio. The room is long and narrow, approximately 16.5 x 5.5 feet. It's the perfect space for a visiting scholar or someone coming to visit Boston who wants to work and tour. The room has three East and one South facing windows, and gets natural light the entire day. The room and house are extremely quiet, surrounded by several old-growth shade trees on a one-way street with little traffic. You will sleep extremely well here as our reviews attest, and we've had numerous professional writers and scholars come for a long stay to work.

Guest access

Guests have access to the kitchen, yard, living room and dining room. Enjoy a continental breakfast in my eat-in kitchen or exclusive garden and patio if the weather permits. Feel free to use the high-speed wireless internet. Washer/dryer is available upon request.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy having my guests be part of my social circle. I love having conversations over a cup of coffee or glass of wine or beer when time allows. If I have a dinner party or barbecue, I invite my guests to participate. Enjoy a continental breakfast in my eat-in kitchen or exclusive garden and patio if the weather permits. You'll be entertained by my Bengal cat Carrie; she is de-clawed and super sweet and loving. I want my guests to feel welcome and integrated with my community.

Had a lovely stay with Micheal. He is a great host and really takes care of his guests. The house is in a fantastic location for getting around Cambridge and really close to the red line so you can be in the city in no time.

I stayed at Michael's house for two day. Michael is a great host. The contents written by Michael on the Airbnb page is accurate. The place is within walking distance to Harvard university. A big surprise is that Parking is extremely easy near the house. Would stay here again when visit Boston next time.

Michael hosted a Harvard graduate student for almost a month. The student was very happy. Michael is accomodating and communication was stellar. Will definitely use Michael in the future. A great alternative to pricey Harvard Square hotels and inns.
