We are steps from the red line subway in the middle of vibrant Central Square. This is the perfect place to be based to explore Harvard, MIT, Kendall Square and Boston. Anyone who loves cafes and restaurants will love this location!

There are 2 public parks, 3 grocery stores, 6 coffee shops and more than 15 restaurants all within a 5 minute walk! Walk 15 minutes and be at either Harvard or MIT. You'll love our beautiful space in one of Boston's most beautiful and exciting neighborhoods.

The space

This sun filled flat is the ideal Cambridge location. We are a 1 minute walk from the Central Square stop of the Red Line MBTA train. Steps away from some of the best restaurants and bars in the Boston area - you can't beat this location! Harvard is a 15 minute walk West and MIT is a 10 minute walk East. Nestled in the heart of Cambridge with easy access to Boston (2 stops on the Red Line train), you will surely enjoy your stay. The beautiful esplanade of the Charles River is an enjoyable 10 minute walk to the South.

The flat boasts modern stainless steel appliances in the immaculate eat-in kitchen. There is a washer/dryer that is free for guests to use. The whole unit was remodeled in 2005 and consists of a kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms with queen beds (one with desk) and a rear porch.

We provide a television with access to Netflix, HBO Go!, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu.

Guest access

Wifi, rear porch (BBQ, al fresco dining), kitchen, bathroom, Keurig coffee maker, guest parking pass (sometimes a previous guest forgets to return the pass - this has only happened once but if it is missing then you can find garage parking less than a block away)

Interaction with guests

I'm always available to answer questions or solve any problems during your stay.

Other things to note

There are three bedrooms, each with a queen bed. There is street parking by permit (we have a guest permit for you). Finding a spot within a block is usually easy. There is a public parking garage less than a block away for a second car or if covered parking is desired. Our apartment is located on the 2nd floor - there is one flight of stairs.

I used to live in Boston for two years and went back for a short business trip staying at Kyle's place. I can promise you the location of the apartment is the best in Cambridge. It's walking distance to MIT and Harvard, and surrounded by multiple good restaurants, bars, cafes, and grocery stores. The apartment is clean and cozy. The check-in was convenient. Kyle and Barbara are responsible hosts and I will definitely book this place again.

Communication easy, didn't have to meet anyone. Flat fine. 1 night all good.

Pros: Easy access to public transportation. The host was great about communication - very responsive when questions were asked. Unit was spacious and well appointed. Cons: Between the busy street traffic (pedestrian and vehicle), the upstairs neighbor, and the window a/c unit in the master bedroom - it was difficult to get a good nights sleep.

I am a PhD student at Harvard University studying bioengineering. I'm originally from San Francisco and travel between Cambridge and California all the time. When I'm not thinking up experiments or writing I am traveling or reading. I am a big fan of Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
