My fiance' and me stayed 11 nights at this cottage in Sept 2017. We are from Florida and we chose this cottage because it was close to Stanford Hospital where my fiance' was going to have an operation. I have to say that it did not really give us a good impression on our arrival as we saw the area covered with fallen leaves and clearly the ground needed a good pressure wash.. . However, we found the inside of the cottage very cozy and clean.. . We specially liked the bed which was very comfortable, the nice cabled TV, all the kitchen wares and generous supplies of coffee.. . All these were important to us since my fiance' needed to rest after the operation and we stayed at the cottage most of the time (We actually had cancelled our booking with another cottage after finding out that they did not have TV). We also found this area happened to be by a what looked like a Mexican town with a lot of Mexican eateries. My fiance' is a Mexican and she loved it.. . The host was also at their house next door and we felt very safe and comfortable during our stay. Overall, this is a great cottage for a couple.. .

My parents stayed at this lovely cottage while visiting me in town. The cottage is private, clean, comfortable and cozy. They loved it. Anja also provided coffee, bread, milk and fruits! It was a very enjoyable stay and I highly recommended!

I'm a repeat guest at Anja's cottage, for good reason! I always sleep really well because the neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful. The cottage has plenty of room for me (business traveler) and it's super comfortable. Also, if you are trying to actually cook for yourself, you can do it here! Full size appliances and well stocked basics. Enjoyable, and I recommend!

I stayed at Anja's cottage for two-months and have nothing but positive things to say. Beautiful home, family and area. Fully-stocked kitchen, short drive to Stanford and downtown Palo Alto. I would fully recommend to both short- and long- term renters. Thank you again for your warmth and hospitality!

This little cottage was everything you could ask for. Comfortable living space, adorably decorated, wonderful facilities. Even though it's right next to Anja's house, there was absolute privacy. Being on the property had the added sense of safety and comfort. The kitchen is well stocked in cooking essentials and I loved that it had a little compost bucket for scraps. Anja also provides breakfast (milk, Keurig coffee, cereals, and other little snacks) - so thoughtful! The coffee was a godsend. Definitely one of the top airbnbs around!

My husband and I had a great stay at Anja's Airbnb - the cottage was private, clean, and comfortable. We were in town to visit family, so we really appreciated being able to come and go as we needed. Anja provided breakfast food, which was a wonderful addition to our stay and very thoughtful!
