Description

Spacious basement level studio apartment with retro décor in desirable Fresh Pond area of Cambridge. Walk to shops, restaurants, golf course, jogging path. Very comfortable queen-size bed, breakfast bar, living room seating area, dining room table, and large flat screen TV. Note: entire space is carpeted, there are only three small windows, and a flight of stairs to access the unit. Harvard Sq. bus stops right by the house.

This basement level studio apartment has been designed to have separate areas: screened-off bedroom alcove, living room, dining area, and breakfast bar. It's a fun and relaxing space and a far cry from the typical hotel room. Although on a main street my guests find it to be quiet and great for sleeping!

This is your space with its own entry. The breakfast bar has a coffee maker, toaster oven, and microwave. Feel free to enjoy the large flat screen cable TV and a good Wifi signal for your internet access. The office area including computer and desk etc. is off limits as are the areas through the two blue doors which are kept locked for your privacy. Guests may use the rear patio for relaxing.

My schedule changes so my interaction with guests varies from week to week. I've arranged to have the key to the unit in a special place so you can let yourself in whenever you arrive! I will try to greet you on the day of your arrival and help get you settled and oriented to the city if needed. I am available by text or phone with any questions or issues. My goal is for your stay to be comfortable, enjoyable, and stress-free!

The neighborhood is quite residential yet has many services within walking distance. Two blocks in one direction is the wonderful café Sofra with homemade confections and middle eastern dishes. One block in the other direction is Shangri-La: an excellent Chinese restaurant. Two blocks away is Greg's, a neighborhood Italian eatery with full bar and early bird specials. Also within a block are a well stocked liquor store/wine shop, a middle eastern bakery, and a dry cleaners. If you want to walk five blocks to Coolidge Square there is a tasty vegetarian restaurant (Red Lentil), a great diner (Town Diner), a tiny but very good middle eastern eatery (Jasmine), and a super coffee/lunch spot (Uncommon Grounds). A supermarket (Shaws) is four blocks away. A jogging trail around Fresh Pond is six blocks away as is a very nice nine hole golf course. All of this only a ten minute bus ride from Harvard Square!

The 73 Bus from Harvard Square stops right in front of the house (Sullivan Rd. stop). The 73 bus leaves from underground in the Harvard Square subway station and is about a ten minute ride.

In the nice weather we have a wonderful rear patio surrounded by flower beds. It has chaise lounges, a large table and umbrellas and fountains and a barbecue and is a real urban oasis. We encourage our guest to enjoy the space at their leisure. One important thing: street cleaning happens monthly in the morning on Sullivan road on the fourth Tuesday and Wednesday of the month from April through November. Your car will be towed if you don't move it.


Règlement intérieur
Non fumeur
Ne convient pas aux animaux
Pas de fête ni de soirée
Peut ne pas convenir aux enfants (0-12 ans)
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait après 13:00

If you watch TV please keep the volume at a reasonable level especially at night as we do have other tenants in the building. If you come in late at night try also to be quiet. As the whole apartment is carpeted, please if possible remove your shoes at the bottom of the stairs and leave them on the area rug there.
We don't allow pets or smoking on the premises.
Air conditioning: There is a window AC at the end of the living room for your use if you need it in the summer. The left hand knob selects either just fan (turn knob to the left) or cooled air (turn knob to the right). There are three speed setting: high, medium, and low. The right hand knob sets the degree of cooling from 1 to 10. This AC is very efficient so you generally can set the fan speed at low and the cool at about 4 or 5. In the interest of conservation, please don't leave the AC on if you are leaving during the day. It is capable of cooling the place pretty quickly upon your return if need be. Since this is a basement unit it tends to be cooler, and only in the hottest weather is AC needed. Thanks!

I am a long time Cambridge resident having come here originally to attend Harvard Divinity School. I'm a residential real estate agent practicing in Cambridge and Boston. I co-own a three-family residence in Fresh Pond Cambridge and rent out two rooms and a studio through airbnb at my residence where I also reside. I'm interested in health and help run a small meditation and holistic health group out of the first floor apartment in addition to the room rentals. My interests also include gardening, interior design, travel golf, and of course hosting on airbnb! I like providing beautiful and comfortable spaces for my guests to enjoy. I own an RV and love to go camping to the mountains and seashore with my friends and especially my grandchildren. My favorite travel destinations are New Orleans, Savannah, Georgia, and Palm Springs California. I like all kinds of foods and especially my veggies, and I'll give you my cole slaw recipe; grate a cabbage and some carrots, add a grated fresh anise and an apple to the mix, then add some organic cider vinegar and olive oil mayo to taste (this mix tastes so good, you can try it without mayo). My musical tastes are also wide and include jazz, pop, and a cappela.
