2BR Cambridgeport near MIT, Harvard, BU

Apartment is the 1st floor of a 2-family house in a quiet neighborhood near the Charles river, just over the bridge from Boston University and walking distance to MIT and Harvard. Bike and jogging paths run along the river. For English-fluent children, the elementary school is 1 minute away. The garage has space to store bicycles/tricycles/strollers (but not a car).

Public transportation: 1 block to bus 47, 10-15 min walk to subway Green Line (BU East) and Red Line (Central Sq)

Groceries: Trader Joe's is around the corner. Whole Foods is another few blocks. Central Square has HMart (Asian large grocery store) and many smaller shops.

A note - we're beekeepers and have two very friendly hives in the backyard. If you're here in any of the warmer months, I have an extra bee suit and am happy give you a tour of the inside of a beehive.

'I have known Anish for almost 20 years (!) and he is one of the most trustworthy people I know. He even officiated my wedding!'

About Me
I am trained as an applied mathematician and work as a quant; my wife runs an international education company. We live on the top two floors of our 2-family house and rent out the first. Our travels include staying in a thatched hut in the Darién region of Panamá, (not) sleeping on an open hammock in the Amazon, hiking with our stuff on our backs from Slovakia over Poland's highest peak into Poland, and driving around (the most beautiful country we've seen) Romania. We are quiet and neat and enjoy sharing our house. (The young couple who started renting from us 5 1/2 years ago are now a family of 4 and recently moved out, having bought the house next door.)

We're a family of three, with a six-year-old child, who spent four months in Anish and Sylvia's beautiful, tastefully furnished, spacious, bright, and extremely well equipped flat during my sabbatical at Harvard and BU. The house (we were on the first floor, they on the second) is in a great, quiet residential area, kid-friendly but also close to the bars and restaurants on Massachusetts Avenue. It's also just a stone's throw away from Boston University Bridge, the Charles River, and thus from the city's action. Shops (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and others) are conveniently close too. Most importantly for us, though, Anish and Sylvia were incredibly friendly, warm, and helpful landlords and neighbors. Their many tips about restaurants, museums, movie theaters, and so on were always thoughtful and spot on too. I cannot recommend them and their flat highly enough.

Staying at Anish and Sylvia's place was a wonderful experience -- it's a spacious, bright, quiet, and beautifully furnished home; and ideally located for BU and other universities. Having Trader Joe's within a 5 minute walk was perfect, as well. Lastly, and importantly, Anish & Sylvia are fantastic neighbors -- easy-going and helpful and welcoming in every way! I could not recommend them and their place more highly Excellent Anna Salomons 9/7/2018 7:22:00 AM
