It's very well equipped and perfectly located for exploring Cambridge, Boston centre and Harvard. There are lots of little restaurants and bars nearby and also cooking facilities at the accommodation. The subway is a 10-15 min walk and in just a few stops you reach Boston Common. The neighbourhood was very quiet at nighttime and we really liked the style of the buildings. A/C very efficient on hot days. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Our only issue was with getting the lock box back onto the wall but Leigh (the owner) was very helpful in giving advice so we soon had it sorted.

There are great restaurants and shops just a few minutes walk away. The apartment was stunning - massive rooms, beatifilly furnished and in perfect condition. I will certainly be back.
