This is a charming, sunny place in the center of Cambridge. Steps from Charles River, Harvard, the T (metro system), restaurants, shopping and museums. Great if you're here for vacation, a conference or to visit one of the local universities.
This is a beautiful prewar 1BR apartment on the third floor of a four-story walk-up. Tons of windows and sunshine, we have lovely views of greenery and the bustle of the Square.
The whole apartment is yours, including a fully-functional kitchen with cookware and diningware. I'll also provide you with the basics (olive oil, salt, pepper, spices) for cooking so you don't have to buy them yourself.
If you'll need more than one bed, the living room, which has a door and complete privacy, doubles as a second bedroom. The bed (a convertible Karlstad couch from IKEA) is fantastically comfortable. As someone who suffers on bad beds, I've slept on this many times -- it's as cozy as my proper bed. There are several reviews of this convertible couch online if you're concerned. [**Please note: There is one review below that says this apartment is not ideal for 2 beds. I wish this guest (who was a lovely guest!) would have been a little more specific about why he found this to be the case. Many people have used this place as a 2 bed and have found it great. I can only assume that, because the second bed is in the living room, he found it inconvenient to convert the bed back to a couch.]
Here are some more reviews from past guests on another hosting site:
Liza: "Wonderful place, feels like home! Warm, comfortable, clean, incredible location next to restaurants, shops and subway station. When I go back I'll stay here again for sure! 100% recommended."
Rebecca: "This apartment is in a fantastic location. Perfect for me researching at the Harvard library only a 3 minute walk away. Great for my family with a short walk to the train. Surrounded by food options. The apartment is bright and Liz was a fantastic host. Responsive and thoughtful and great to deal with. Highly recommended!"
Cary: "Liz was an awesome host. The apartment was clean and we'll organized. I immediately felt at home. It was the perfect location to attend my Harvard workshop and I was so thankful to be able to chill out in my own apt during my breaks."
Tim: "Great place right in the heart of Harvard. Couldn't have asked for an easier location, steps away from the red line T and across from the JFK School. Thanks Liz for a great stay!"
Martin: "Everything was perfect! The first contact with Liz was easy and very friendly. The apartment was clean, well furnished and equipped. Located in the heart of Cambridge it was easy to acces the public transport! Tout était parfait, des premiers contacts avec Luisa et de l'accueil de Jess, impeccable. L'appartement était super bien situé, charmant, propre et bien équipé."
Audrey: "We had a wonderful time! Liz was very sweet and provided us with fresh sheets and towels. She even gave us a tourist book, a solution for parking our car and suggested cool places to go to. The apartment is situated in a central area with the subway within walking distance and it was very clean. Liz made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay! I recommend this apartment, or Liz as a visitor, to everyone!
Make sure to have a good map of the area to find your way by car, though, because Harvard Square's roads are complicated... but the area is so gorgeous and fun to discover by foot!"
The whole apartment is yours!
You'll have complete privacy during your stay here. I am always available by phone and email, however, if you have any questions or emergencies. If there's an emergency that needs immediate attention (such as getting locked out), and I'm not in town I have two neighbors who are available for support.
Parking is difficult in Harvard Square and our building doesn't have off-street parking. We might be able to help you out with a guest pass for the on-street residential parking in the area, but please be in touch with us ahead of time if you want to consider using this -- there are several city rules that apply to these passes.
Feel free to use the books and records, but make sure to put them back where they belong.
