Dan and Katinka are fantastic hosts and I would not pass on an opportunity to rent from them. They provided me with a warm welcome, checked in to see if I needed anything, and were overall kind and generous folks. They live next door, which was nice in the event I needed them.

I stayed in Cambridge for two weeks to research at Harvard, and I found the apartment's location to be quick and convenient-- a one stop trip on the red line from Central to Harvard Square. The apartment is also ideally located if you need to be at MIT. The apartment is located on a side street, which provides a nice getaway from the noise of Mass Ave.

The apartment is gorgeous-- well appointed and well designed. The king-sized bed is super comfortable, and Dan and Katinka have gone above and beyond when it comes to amenities. You'll have everything you'll need to create a home away from home while in Cambridge. The upstairs guests who lived above me were never too loud, and I had a really cozy and comfortable stay. I certainly wish I could have stayed longer-- thank you, Dan and Katinka for a wonderful experience!

My family of six stayed in Dan and Kate's apt for two months. The hosts are very nice and available. For example, knowing we were arriving from Europe late at night and with small kids, they asked us what we needed for breakfast and bought everything for us. The apartment has been entirely renovated and it's really nice. Be aware that there is only one bathroom. Not a big deal for us but it might be inconvenient for others. Nice location, convenient for restaurants, shops, subway, and playgrounds. Overall, the whole family had a really good time in this house. Excellent Claudia 6/15/2018 2:33:00 AM
