Comfortable and well-located 3 BD/2BA in Cambridge MA, close to both Harvard and MIT

Our fully-furnished 3 Bed/2 Bath condominium occupies the top two floors of a house (as there are only two other apartments, both below ours, the place is quiet). Located on a pleasant and safe street in the Riverside/Cambridgeport area of Cambridge MA, it is very close to public transportation (5- or 6- minute walk to subway), to Harvard and MIT (15 to 17 minutes by foot), as well as to numerous restaurants, grocery stores etc. The Charles River is also an easy walk from here.

The rent covers utilities -- that is, gas, electricity, cable tv, internet, and (for the most part) phone calls are included -- as well as a thorough cleaning of the apartment every two weeks. While the unit does not have central air-conditioning, it has individual window ACs in all rooms.

The two larger bedrooms are on the topmost floor, and share the main bathroom. The third room is on the lower floor, with a window looking out onto the deck/balcony; it has a sofa that opens into a double bed and serves as both office/study and spare bedroom. The second bathroom is located on this floor.

The apartment has a small private deck, with table and chairs, which leads down to a small shared garden. The laundry facilities are located in the basement, and shared by all three apartments in the building. The flat is very comfortable and well appointed.

Ideally, We are looking to rent the apartment to a single family for at least 2 weeks between Dec 20 and Jan 25 2020, and for at least 8 weeks between April 15 and Aug 15 2020, but we will consider part or whole of the period, and there is some flexibility in start and end dates. The rent will be prorated for partial weeks. A security deposit will be required, fully refundable, assuming the apartment is left in good condition.

More pictures available upon request. While we have never bothered to ask for reviews for people who have rented from us, we can put you in touch with prior renters should you wish to get a sense of the apartment and the area from those who have lived here over the last three summers.
