About

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 gas, electricity, cable tv, internet, and local phone calls. 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 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. 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. We can also put you in touch with prior renters, should you wish to get a sense of the apartment and the area from families who have spent time there during the summer. Would prefer to rent to a single family. Well-behaved dogs are fine.
