We booked Anja and Phillip's home for 5 nights during our stay in Cambridge for our son's graduation from Harvard. There were 7 family members staying in the home for the event. The home was exactly as depicted on airbnb. Beautiful, comfortable, extremely well kept. Even though it rained few days we easily walked back and forth to Harvard along the Charles River and to the T stop in Central Square to get to the Garden for the Celtics game. Very thoughtful in their preparation for our arrival with many small details that made our stay unforgettable for this special occasion. We would highly recommend or stay again!

Anja was an OUTSTANDING host! Our party (my husband and I, my parents, my MIL and SIL, and aunt and uncle) was in town for the Boston Marathon. Anja provided great guidance on what to do in the neighborhood, how to navigate Boston, and checked in consistently leading up to and throughout our stay. Her home was perfect for what we needed - areas to relax, a kitchen to make some meals in, and comfy sleeping areas. The location near Trader Joe's and public transportation was also a huge help. I highly recommend Anja as a host!

Staying in Anja's house definitely improved my family's trip in Boston! The house is within walking distance of Boston University (where our event was), and is right next to a Trader Joe's and a Hubway bicycle station, which made getting around a breeze and grocery shopping even easier. The house itself is lovely and comfortable, with a pretty garden and just the right amount of space for us (7 people). Anja is very nice and was very communicative: quick to get back to us with any questions or warn us of any issues ahead of time. For example, Anja warned us that the top two rooms might be quite hot when we arrived, but as she said they aired out nicely and it was not a problem. It was a pleasure to stay in the house, and I am very glad to have met Anja!

Anja's house is very beautiful and convenient for shopping. It is great for children playing in yard. Anja and Philipp are all kind and easy to communicate with. The rooms are clean and neat.
