About Me
My husband and I are retired school teachers. We have lived, traveled and taught in Paraguay, Thailand, Singapore and the United States. We are from Northampton, Massachusetts area originally, and we returned here after retiring a few years ago from Singapore American School. We have a 900-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment above our garage that we would like to rent to educators or someone affiliated with one of the five colleges in this area - short- or long-term.

We really enjoyed our 4 weeks stay in the house. Very clean and nice house. The house has everything you need to be comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and made us feel at ease. It was overall a great experience for our family. Our son still talks about the house, Haha! That shows how he liked it. We all did :) Excellent Fous 8/17/2018 2:14:00 PM
We have been blessed to have had this apartment. Everything about it has been just great. Very well designed, comfortable, easy-to-keep living space, with all the amenities we could need in the kitchen. Heating, wi-fi cable tv etc have all been first-rate. We've also enjoyed the lovely setting on a country road, with ample garden space and a sunny deck on which to to sit out. And we could not have asked for better owners to deal with: Shelley and Paul have been most helpful in every way, kind, friendly and discrete. We recommend this apartment unreservedly to any prospective tenant. Excellent Ignatius 6/19/2018 3:34:00 PM
