Apartment or Condo | Entire Home

PLEASE SEE THE LINK TO OUR AIRBNB LISTING FOR REVIEWS AND ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE UNDER "RELEVANT LINKS". The apartment is on the first floor of a two-family house, a tastefully furnished two-bedroom in a beautiful neighborhood, with a dining room, living room, study, one full bathroom, walk-in closet, and a newly-renovated eat-in kitchen. There is one queen-size bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other bedroom, so it sleeps four. The kitchen is fully equipped; there is a flat-screen TV; cable and Wifi, and a washer and dryer in the basement. Our photos say it all…this is a cozy (but roomy), comfortable place to stay while you are in the Boston-Cambridge-Somerville area. Whether it is for business, pleasure, visiting the area colleges and universities or medical centers, you will feel at home on our quiet street just steps from busy Massachusetts Avenue. My husband and I live upstairs on the second and third floors. You have your own washer and dryer in the basement. Sit out on the back porch and yard and enjoy the garden! The Neighborhood This is a safe neighborhood with a lot of open space. Besides our yard, which is considered large by city standards, there is a school with public playing fields, two playgrounds, and public tennis courts at the end of the street on Rindge Avenue. Right around the corner, on Sherman Street, there is a giant public park - Danehy Park - with playgrounds and playing fields, trails for walking and jogging, and in the winter, a giant hill for sledding. The location gets even more perfect....You can get easily anywhere and everywhere from Hollis Street without a car. Walk, bike, or take public transportation. You will be close to the major universities, museums, medical centers, and other attractions of the Boston- Cambridge area. Hip Davis Square (Somerville) is just a short five -minute walk, with its historic movie theater and great restaurants. There are many other restaurants right around the corner on Massachusetts Avenue, like Café Barada (Middle-Eastern), Greek Corner (Greek), and Frank’s Steakhouse (American). You can also walk to Grand Gusto Tretorria (Italian) on nearby Sherman Street. Pemberton Farms and Market is diagonal across from Hollis Street on Massachusetts Avenue. This is a wonderful market with farm-fresh produce and specialty foods, a deli, bakery, wine and beer, and excellent meat and fish. Have one of their delicious sandwiches and sip coffee sitting with the flowers at a table in their greenhouse! Star Market is a huge supermarket in Porter Square (.5 miles) with everything you could possibly need. Whole Foods is also very close by. Food shopping could not be easier from your home-base. This apartment is available for short or longer term rentals. It's a perfect place for visiting faculty and their families, for graduate students, or for anyone wanting to explore the Boston-Cambridge area.
