Great property, great location, great service

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our arrival, the owner gave clear instructions and helpful advice. She met us at the unit to orient us to the unit and the area. The balcony is just as charming as it looks in the pictures, the rooms were spacious and well appointed, as well as very clean. The parking place would be vital in this part of town if you have a car. There were several eating places nearby, our favorites being Charlie's and the Free Press Pub. The unit's central location allowed us to walk all over town, to all the parks, downtown, and many sites on the river. The owner was available if needed, made us feel welcome, and overall gets high marks in every category. If we return to Cambridge, which is very possible, we would be delighted to return to this unit.

Lovely flat in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very pretty and full of all the basic needs. We were able to have cook which was a nice change from eating out! Shanaugh was very accommodating and helpful. My only complaint is that the beds are a bit small for us Americans! We are not used to sleeping in doubles. Also please understand that there is no AC Which is very common for an apartment in England. You rarely need it. We just happened to be there during a heat spell.

Shanaugh did get us a fan for one of the bedrooms but it did make for one tough night of sleep before we had it.

This apartment was a great place to stay in Cambridge. Shaunagh was lovely and really flexible with timing, as well as helpful and prompt to reply to emails before our arrival. It's rare to find a place that is so beautiful, close to the centre of the city, and complete with everything one might need for a longer stay, including a parking spot, washing machine, and full kitchen. The beds were really comfortable as well. I would definitely recommend staying here!
