THIS IS A FIRST TIME AirB&B post, hence no reviews but I have been renting this flat for 30 years to visiting Professors, Scholars, international Doctors, journalist ... all of whom have loved living here! lots of references available including current tenants who are Bay Area kids & insist it's OK to give out their number to interested guests!!
Located on a tree-lined street 4 block to Harvard Sq, 7 to Central, lots of good places to eat-out, Petsi Pie Coffee & Au Bon Pain half a block from our front door, Zip Car space across the street. Quiet yet in the middle of Cambridge and great public trans to Boston.
This flat is on the second floor of a three unit building where we live on top floor and are immediately available for any problems that might arise. We also have tenants on the first floor so request reasonable respectful behavior. NO PARTIES PLEASE. A normal dinner party with good social behavior is welcome, but this is NOT a party pad!! We live here and will be the first to knock on your door if noise is excessive. So Please Be Warned.

My Husband is a lifetime Cambridge resident, a Cantabrigian as they are called and a General Contractor available on site for any problems with the flat. He specializes in the restoration and modernization of very old houses. I am from Berkeley, California originally but have spent much of my pre -Cambridge life in Florence, Italy and thereafter 40 years here. I continue that back & forth regularly. My professional work has centered around the use of community media to effect social change. I am a founding member of the Alliance for Community Media and an activist for the use of technology in solving social issues - a pioneer in the evolution of Social Media.
This flat is located in what is called Riverside. It is very close to Harvard Square but also just a block or two from the Charles River as it twists through Cambridge and Boston. This is a friendly, very safe neighborhood of quiet tree-lined streets yet near the hustle bustle of Harvard and Central Squares. Walking distance to so many of Cambridge's historical spots, the new/old Richardsonian Central Library, brand new Renzo Piano ~ Fogg [Harvard] Museum of Art, or the Peabody Museum of Ethnographic Art, Longfellow's home, just to name a few among many. Good restaurants within strolling distance as well as Petsi Pie's morning coffee shop w feel of San Francisco at the end of our block. This is a really really cool neighborhood to experience Cambridge at it's fullest -- yet a 4 stop T ride or 10 block bus ride into the heart of Boston. A great mix!!
We have a simpatico atmosphere in our house. We are all friendly and respectful of each other's spaces. Cognoscente that we share the same building we value the need to be thoughtful of each other and respect privacy. Fun-loving, international backgrounds, open minded and welcoming, these are the descriptors I would use for all of us. Please come join us in that spirit.
NO Smoking - please for the sake of others if not yourselves.
No pets - I have a very old and territorial Jack Russell who knows he owns the place.
Good manners a must.
Respectful of being a guest, albeit a paying-guest, in our home.
Occupancy limited to three unless other arrangements have been made with us at the time of rental.
Arrival in by 2 or 3 pm and Leaving - out by noon [but we welcome arrangements that fit your needs and have been made with us at booking]
Discreet dinner parties welcome - noisy late partying verboten!
