Chris and Meghan's place is a perfect secluded spot in northern Austin. It's far enough away from downtown that you don't have to worry about city noise, but also a very easy walk to several bus stops that get you downtown. The apartment over the garage was very clean, with plenty of plates, cups, and extra towels. My guests and I had a fantastic stay and would definitely stay here again, if only to play with their adorable dog Barkley.

I had a great experience at Chris's place. Its a very nice private studio apartment with some nice wilderness around, very close to good restaurants. There is an awesome tea/breakfast place around the corner. I loved the cozy place, large bathroom and the convenience. I will stay there again.

Chris and Meghan's place is great! We were afforded privacy, but also access to such a great location. We were close to shopping and groceries when necessary and could easily drive or take a cab anywhere for a reasonable price. Their place was clean and had travel size amenities and even a Keurig with coffee pods. It was SUCH a great value for the price. We didn't need much during our stay but Chris was very communicative prior to our stay. Would definitely stay again!
