Anja was a perfect host - very welcoming, easy to communicate with and nice. The place is marvelous - great for business trips and for leisure. Highly recommend.
I had a great stay in Anja's cottage. The place is very well appointed, private, clean, comfortable and overall a pleasure to rent. Anja goes out of her way to make your stay comfortable, including leaving free Keurig coffee cups, stocking the place with home supplies and washing towels and sheets when/if need be. Also great is the included DirectTV and ultra-comfortable bed! Highly recommend.
