Interaction with Guests
Guests can live here very privately. I'm also happy to talk with you and provide advice about Austin.
This is a quiet, residential area.
It's best to have a car here but a bike comes with the room, so you can also bike to stores and cafes. There are buses in the area. You can also put the bike on the bus and take it to the lake.
I will need to see identification at check in. Keys will be provided at that time.
Come and go as you please, LOCK UP AFTER YOURSELF and clean up after yourself in the kitchen please.
USE OF SPACE
Feel free to use the deck and dining area to eat. Feel free to sit in the living room.
I'll do my best to make your stay as accommodating and relaxing as possible.
Cathy made me feel very welcome and provided a clean, quiet and comfy room. I felt comfortable in her space and even enjoyed her backyard patio on one of the lovely days I was there. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good place to stay.
I had a great experience with Cathy. I was familiar with Austin, so her location was great for me. A short drive to Auditorium shores, and she lives in a nice, quaint neighborhood. I liked that I had my own private bathroom, and everything was clean. I will come back next time I'm in Austin. Also, she is very well-traveled, so if you're planning a trip to Europe she is a great resource!
Cathy is the perfect host. She was there when needed, but not in your face. Room and house were perfect. Neighborhood was quiet and friendly.
My stay at Cathy's house was lovely. She lives in a quiet part of town, in a nice house and you have a lot of privacy there. Clean and spacious room with your own bathroom. Perfect.
Cathy is really sweet and helpfull! I would definitely recommend!
Cathy has a nice, quiet house in South Austin with a comfortable private bathroom. It was perfect for a singleton such as myself who likes a little privacy.
Cathy was a great host. the bedroom and bath were nice, quiet, and comfortable. the whole house and neighborhood were nice, quiet, and comfortable.
Cathy provided bus and city maps and great bus advice that got me easily to and from the ACL festival. And she recommended a Hill Country exploration drive that I also did.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and I really "lucked out." I had a delightful stay in Cathy Lara's home. The neighborhood is attractive, safe, and easy to get around in. The home is just like it looks in the pictures--very clean, cheerful, comfortable. I had my own bathroom and was very near the kitchen, great for early morning coffee, and private from my host's quarters at the other end of the house. Cathy was an excellent host. She is available when you need her, easy to talk with, and she made sure I was comfortable. Also just an all round nice and interesting person. Her home is the first place I will check next time I am in Austin.
I love music and dancing and can tell you all about the music scene in Austin. I can also tell you about the swing and lindy hop dance scene. I spent a decade in Berlin and speak fluent German. I am very well-traveled and enjoy meeting people from other countries and places.
