  • Perfect location for us. Lots of restaurants to walk to. Great neighborhood. Hope to stay here again when we visit.

    10 Paul Goldstein, September 2023 Image

    Great place to stay and great location in Central Cambridge! The hosts were very responsive and the place was very clean. Would stay here again!

    10 David Moy, November 2023 Image

  • Great location so close to Central Square T. Target, H-Mart, Walgreens, coffee, etc right next door

    10 Grace Evansen, November 2023 Image

    Definitely will be back here! Brian + Heather were accommodating and highly responsive. Great area as well!

    10 Akilesh Potti, November 2023 Image

  • Absolutely amazing place. Great location, super clean and modern apartment. Really responsive host. I definitely recommend this place.

    10 Chan Xu, November 2023 Image

    Apartment was perfect for what we needed. Super close to the red line with parking nearby. Comfortable and a good shower. Fabulous view. Our hosts were super responsive and their directions were clear and easy to follow.

    10 Jonathan, July 2023 Image

  • The apartment was clean, comfortable and modern, with an amazing city skyline view! But above all, the location was so convenient, right near the Central Square T stop, right above H Mart, walkable to so many restaurants and stores, that alone is worth ten stars. And the instructions were so easy to follow. We had a great time and saw a lot of the city.

    10 Tiina Hameenanttila, July 2023 Image

    The place is very well located, close to the Central station T and to all amenities. The place has everything you need and is sqeaky clean but very basic (not decorated, doesn't have laundry detergent, doesn't really have basic cooking ingredients, soap and shampoo are quite cheap, etc). The hosts are very responsive and check in is quite easy. Important to note that check in time is quite late (5pm) and check out is quite early 10 am.

    8 Sonia Weiss, June 2023 Image

  • Just like the pictures! Super clean and great location. Would stay again.

    10 Rehan Ahmed, June 2023 Image

    The location is very convenient for us. Very modern as well. definitely will stay here again next time!

    10 Kevin Herjono, November 2023 Image

  • Really enjoyed our stay in Cambridge with Brian+Heather, who were always friendly, responsive and accommodating. A modern, clean, well-furnished and roomy space with easy and secure access complete with all modern-day amenities. A great location in Cambridge less than 1 minute from the Subway with an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops in the local neighbourhood. Highly recommended

    10 Jason Bamert, May 2023 Image

    The location was great! Less than a block to the subway with stores and restaurants close by. The apartment was spotless and was exactly as pictured. They provided parking recommendations with SpotHero, and we were able to secure a spot that we could see from our window. Great views, and they were extremely responsive with any questions. We would definitely stay here again when we’re in the Boston area.

    10 Kathy Allen, April 2023 Image

  • Super modern and clean apartment. The neighbourhood is a bit rough especially if you’re travelling with a family/kids but the apartment itself was 10/10! And the Healing Homes team was very helpful and allowed us to check in few hours before without extra fees.

    10 Kety Bolkvadze, November 2023 Image

    It is so good. After we lived in unit 604 for 6 months, we decided to continue living in the same building but another available unit 403 for another 6 months.

    10 Alan Hong, November 2023 Image

  • Very nice place, spacious and good location. Brian and Heather great communicators and answered all my questions quickly. Would stay here again!

    10 Jenny Nowierski, June 2022 Image

    The place actually looks just like the photos which is incredibly rare! Great location, very nice apartment. Very comfortable beds. Everything you would need for a 2 week stay was there (except for only 1 key which was inconvenient). Definitely recommend the apartment and the location!

    10 Amy Holbrook, November 2023 Image

  • We had a lovely stay in Brian and Heather’s apartment. Cleanliness is always my top priority when choosing an air bnb and the apartment was cleaned to a very high standard. Communication was excellent, Brian and Heather answered any question I had immediately. The self check in worked very well for us and instructions were perfect. We would definitely stay again if visiting Boston in the future.

    10 Ruth McEnerney, November 2023 Image

    Great place in Central Square. Huge 2 bedroom apartment and very modern with all amenities.

    10 Shaswat Anand, November 2023 Image

  • The place was super clean, in a great location, and communication with Brian and Heather was smooth! Highly recommend!

    10 Becca, November 2023 Image

    Very clean. And new and modern. Perfect location , close to everything. Because we drove so just wished parking was included. Very quick responses.

    10 Chuyi, November 2023 Image

  • Amazing place. Very close to everything you’d need during your stay and overall and amazing experience.

    10 Juan Polanco, November 2023 Image

    Clean, modern space with a smooth check in process and lovely space. Responsive team!

    10 Dena Goffman, November 2023 Image

  • Great location! Stayed with my three year old and it was perfect. Lots of easy food options nearby and a target & hmart on the block. Communication was so seamless. Check in was a breeze. We had a friend with a car and she was always able to find street parking within a block or two, whenever we went out. We would have appreciated a few basics in the kitchen - salt, pepper, coffee grounds, etc. and maybe a few disposables like aluminum or plastic wrap since there was no food storage tops. There is a little store right downstairs - just plan ahead for these little items if you are planning to cook. Such a minor detail but important if traveling with kids. The sunlight in the apartment is amazing! The windows are stunning and the sun rise views are breathtaking - just note that there isn’t much curtain blockage though so it can get sunny early (if you have a little one, you will understand!)

    10 Neesha Modi, November 2023 Image

    This location is in a great location, central location and close to the train station. Very clean and roomy space. The management is very helpful and responsive. Fantastic place to stay in Boston.

    10 L W, November 2023 Image

  • We stayed for three nights with a toddler and a 3-month-old baby. Hope my review will help future guests with young children. Pros: 1) location is amazing. Target, H-mart, CVS are located within 5 minutes walk. 2) If you like to cook for your family, you can enjoy cooking easily since the apartment is quite well equipped such as pots, pans, silverware, and other cooking utensils. There was no cooking oil, salt, and pepper (I only found a bag of sugar in the kitchen closet). 3) Having laundry in the unit helped us tremendously in terms of washing children’s clothes when needed. You will be able to find laundry detergent under the kitchen sink. 4) Everything was pretty clean and well-organized. Cons: 1) check-in: I didn’t receive any check-in instructions until we got there at 5 pm on the day. We had to keep messaging and calling the host to share the info. It was very frustrating to wait with young children outside under cold weather conditions. 2) drainage problem: on the first day, we found out that there was a drainage issue in the bathtub. It was already late so I messaged the host to fix the problem the following day (If you have children and follow bath routines even during the trip, you will understand how important it is). Unfortunately, it wasn’t fixed the next day either. My husband bought a liquid drain cleaner and later found a gross giant ball of tangled hair that clogged the drain (the host reimbursed the liquid cleaner price). Based on what I saw, I don’t think that we are the only people who had this drainage problem. I just wish the host paid more attention and fixed it promptly when it was reported by the cleaning team or previous guests. Regular drainage cleaning is strongly required for future guests.

    Beautiful home at a very convenient location Walking distance from restaurants and markets such as h mart, cvs, Walgreens and target. Heather and Brian were very accommodating and quick to respond. It would be nice to have had a full length mirror. But definitely would stay here again if I decide to visit Boston in the future.

    10 Adrine, November 2023 Image

  • This is a good place to stay at 100% would recommend. Fast communication very nice people, easy access to MIT and Harbard. The room is very clean and cozy for a long stay.

    10 Timo, November 2023 Image

    nice location and clean environment

    10 Demi Jin, November 2023 Image

  • I enjoyed staying in this apartment. I loved the tall windows with urban views. The apartment was nicely decorated and in good shape. The location at Central Square, which gathers people from all walks of life, was convenient, with public transport, shops and restaurants (including my favourite fast-food joint Life Alive) around the corner. Charles River was not too far running or walking, and I daily walked to the Harvard campus (a 20+ minute walk / one way). The apartment was quite well equipped (perhaps a full-length mirror could be installed somewhere) and it was relatively quiet - the only slight sources of noise (not really disturbing me) were the fridge, the AC equipment and supplier trucks of the adjacent supermarket, and, in the summer season, bands performing at the Starlight Square (which I enjoyed a lot). Communication with the hosts was mostly excellent. Even if the the first messages before my stay had an automated feel to them and did not really answer my questions, later, during my stay, I always got a prompt and friendly response to all my questions, solving most of the issues I had. The Wi-Fi was occasionally somewhat unstable throughout my 6 week stay. For example, I had to sit next to the router in order to be able to have a video teleconference and still ended up having poor connection at times.

    10 Kirsi Eräranta, November 2021 Image

    Very nice apartment. It was close to the train. Two stops to downtown Boston. Area is evolving. Lots of construction. The check-in process was alittle bumpy. All parking has a 2 hour time limit during the day. You had to keep moving your car. It was difficult if you wanted to go on an all day outing.

    8 Sheila Smith, August 2021 Image

  • We stayed for four nights with our 10-month baby. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. Great location for anyone who wants to stay close to the city hustle and bustle but also the walkable distance to both Harvard and MIT. We found a target and a Whole Foods within 5 min of walk, which made making baby food super easy. Only thing to mention - def not a complaint - is that overnight parking is not included and the closest we could find was about 10 min walk away, not a biggie but for those who are traveling with young babies/kids this is just something to bear in mind. We made it work so not an issue for us at all. Love this place and most likely to book again if we come back to visit.

    10 Xinjie Chen, August 2021 Image

    Super convenient location in Cambridge. T and Bus stop right across the street. Also couldn't beat the convenience of an H Mart, Target, CVS and so many restaurants near by. We were there for 4 weeks and fine to get around without car. Kitchen is well outfitted and having laundry in unit was a life saver. Unit was pretty quiet -- sometimes just some noice when folks were on roof above. The roof deck is a "shared space" not private. Everything was clean and hosts were super responsive.

    8 Lisa Schwartz, July 2021 Image

  • Brian & Heather’s place is beautifully clean and nicely furnished. The building is in the best location possible, right in Central. I loved the views of Cambridge through the lovely large windows and thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

    10 Andrea Jongeling, July 2021 Image

    I love this place. Very convenient and easy to move around. The hosts are very helpful. I will return again.
