Spacious 3+BR in heart of Cambridge summer/fall/year

Bright, sun-filled 2nd & 3rd floor apartment in triple-decker is located in the amazingly convenient Cambridgeport neighborhood. The 2nd floor has a spacious open living-and-dining area, a well-equipped kitchen, and a playroom/bedroom/office (that contains futon, toys, and small desk) opening onto a deck with small table & chairs. The 3rd floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed and office desk, the 2nd bedroom has a sturdy bunk bed and desk, and the 3rd bedroom/office has a double-size futon and large desk. In-unit laundry (washer & dryer) is next to kitchen. There is no TV, but there is a large screen and projector that can be hooked up to a computer (or AppleTV). Comcast utilities include high speed internet (not fiberoptic, but it's ~15Mbps download). There is a small backyard with a grill.

This is our home (to 2 scientists at Harvard/MIT and 2 school-aged boys). During the Covid-19 craziness we have moved to the countryside to be close to parents, and would like to rent it out to you. We have tons of toys, including legos, foosball, and a small air hockey table.

Available now. We want someone to rent minimum 6 months (eg summer/fall).

Rent includes utilities and internet.

Ideal location -- 7 min walk to Central Sq (red line subway), 10 min walk to MIT, 20 min walk to Kendall Sq, 25 min walk to Harvard, 14 min walk to BU (green line subway), and 14 min to Longwood medical area (via 47 bus). In a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood, but close to excellent restaurants and entertainment in Central Sq. 10 min walk to grocery stores (Whole Foods and Trader Joes). There are 5 awesome city playgrounds within a 4 block radius, designed for different age kids -- including one with basketball and pingpong 2 blocks away.

No available parking (only short-term visitor passes for street parking, but lots of street parking if your car is registered in Cambridge), however a covered parking garage 1.5 blocks away offers monthly rates (~$200/mo I think).

No smokers and no pets allowed.
