Interaction with guests

I interact as much or as little as it feels natural. I am happy to offer suggestions on things to see or do around town, directions or information. Some guests prefer more privacy and less interaction, so I respect that. I teach art classes locally and may travel short distance at time and may not be available during the day.

Other things to note

At any given time, we may have other guests, friends or relatives staying with us. However, the house is so large that it's easy for everyone to have privacy or gather together at the dinner table, enjoy the conversation and learn about others' life and culture.

My best experience with Airbnb so far! Emilia was kind, helpful & responsive to anything I needed no matter how unexpected or unanticipated. The space itself is an eclectic blend of the aesthetically pleasing with the comforts of ‘home’ and was meticulously curated, cared for & cleaned each day. Every fellow guest was someone who was as equally kind, considerate & respectful as our host with several returning to experience the comfortable space once again that Emilia—herself an artist in many mediums—creates in her home. I hope to be among their number…

Staying at Emilia's was a great experience! She is a very friendly and kind host. I had a wonderful time chatting and having tea with her when I arrived. The house is a beautiful old New England style house with quaint friendly rooms. I had the impression that all the house guests had good relationships with Emilia. Location is also good -- directly on a bus line into Harvard Square , but also itself a very nice area with nice restaurants, a grocery store, and beautiful parks nearby. Had a wonderful time staying there and very much enjoyed meeting Emilia.

Emilia is a great host and always tries to make you the most comfortable. Her house is located in a very quiet and nice neighborhood, but you're always one bus away from the bigger neighborhoods where you can find restaurants and parks. I had a really good time staying in Emilia's house!
