Welcome to our 100-year-old house! Cozy, friendly and full of charm. Very convenient to MGH. Our location is hard to beat: close to both subway and bus with many excellent restaurants in walking distance. Convenient for functions at MIT or Harvard. Located in Central Square, we are an easy walk to Kendall and Inman Squares. For runners and walkers, the Charles River paths are 0.5 mile away. This unit features hardwood floors and nine foot ceilings. The private back deck is very popular.

De ruimte
First off, in these days of divisiveness, we should make clear that everyone is welcome here. Period. If you have medical needs at MGH, our house can be a safe, quiet respite.
This rental is effectively a studio apartment with a private, locked entrance on the middle floor in a 3-unit building. It consists of a private bedroom, private eat-in kitchen and full bathroom in Central Square. In nice weather, guests love to hangout on the private back porch surrounded by mature maple trees. It's great for morning coffee or that late afternoon glass of wine. If we are a central location for you to visit friends here, the driveway will accommodate your guests.

The bedroom is extremely convertible. The beds can be set for two friends to have separate beds. For couples, we can set up as a king size bed. If you are three, the third person can take our very comfortable memory foam rollaway bed. This has proven highly satisfactory for guests ranging from college guys to grandmothers. Many guests comment on how quiet our neighborhood is at bedtime. (Please see the Guest Access section for more info.) We have options, and we're flexible. We provide one set of towels per person upon arrival. If you are staying more than a few days, we'll swap them every 3-4 days. If you need more, just ask. The space is approximately 600 sq ft (60 sq meters).

Winter notes: we keep the central thermostat at comfortable levels. That said, we have supplementary heaters as you need. Please be considerate and turn them off when you're out of the flat. The bathroom has a baseboard heater with an old-fashioned rotary thermostat to adjust to taste.

We are enthusiastic members of this Airbnb community. We have been guests in several Airbnb flats in the US, Canada and Europe. We are confident in the good value we are offering. Hopefully you will agree. NB: hotels around here are twice our price and more. All that said, we're casual Airbnb hosts, not hoteliers.

Our house is a 7-8 minute walk from the subway (Central Square), a 5 minute walk to the bus on Mass Ave, a 5-6 minute walk to the closer parts of MIT and a 15-20 minute walk to Harvard Square or to Boston in the other direction. If you're a runner, there's a good 9-12k path from our house and around the river. For local cycling, a BlueBikes rental station is a 5 minute walk from the house. There is a driveway for your car also; please let us know if you will be driving. In summer, we install a window unit a/c. The TV in that room will also function as a computer monitor if you need a larger screen. For international guests, we have spare electric adapters too. Also, for international guests, if you need a US SIM card, we can help. If possible, please let us know a few days ahead of your arrival.

Since you'll have your own private kitchen, we'll not make your breakfast. However, we keep coffee and tea in stock for guests. Besides three grocery stores in walking distance, we can give you a lift to Trader Joe's, only 5 min away by car or a 15 min walk. The kitchen has a coffee maker, hot water pot, French press, blender, toaster oven and microwave. Basic cooking utensils and dishes are also provided. If you need more, just ask. If you wish to explore the bakeries and restaurants nearby, Yelp is very strong around here for giving recent reviews.

We are in a 100-year-old Victorian house originally constructed as a multi-family dwelling, typical of 1916. While we have made some updates, some history remains, e.g., the claw-foot tub. Even though we're in an older building, don't worry...we have updated systems. In the winter, you can stay as warm as you like. In addition, we have upgraded to a tankless hot water system. Please give hot water a few extra moments to come up from the basement. Once it starts, you could have hot water all day. The house isn't the Ritz; it's an older, historical building. However, there is good karma to spare.

We are neurotherapists as well as working musicians, one opera singer and one pianist. Check out our website: soundbrain
For guests, we give discounted brain-brightening sessions to clear away the cobwebs :)

Waar je zult verblijven

Cambridge, Massachusetts, Verenigde Staten

Despite our urban setting, our neighborhood is very quiet, particularly at bedtime. It has always been the kind of neighborhood where women can walk alone safely at night. Generally speaking, this side of the river is dramatically calmer than the Boston side though now bustling with a nice variety of great restaurants.

We actively recycle. We can do it for you if you simply keep glass, plastic and metal trash together and separated from trash. We also keep a compost container in the fridge for vegetable trash. We'll empty it into the big bin outside when you leave.

We are a pair of classical musicians in Cambridge, located between MIT & Harvard. As with much of Cambridge, we're hopeless lefties. On parle un peu de français. Hablamos poco español. Und ein bisschen Deutsch auch. Most Sundays you'll find us "making a joyful noise" at one church or another. We've been in this old house and this neighborhood over 20 years now. Since we cook a bit, the rental floor fridge and pantry might contain a little overflow from ours. We're huge fans of Airbnb both as guests and as hosts. Leave your towels and sheets at home; we provide all that for you. Our biggest challenge as Airbnb hosts is saying goodbye to the awesome people who stay with us.
