Great location94% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Walking distance to S. Congress, Zilker and downtown, abundant on-site parking, flexible check-in and check-out times. The suite is ~650 sf, plus a large patio for morning coffee. We are on a quiet, large forested lot. The 1st floor suite (BR, bath, living room w/ kitchenette) with numerous windows (& room-darkening shades) offers peaceful views of mountain laurels and majestic oaks. Our home office adjoins the guest suite; the door stays locked. We live on-site, and would enjoy meeting you.

Karin's place was great! It's only a 10 minute walk from the bustle of SoCo, but could've been in the middle of nowhere for how calm and quiet it was. The place itself was perfect with the serene porch to relax on, separate entrance to the house, a living room and bedroom space…

The location is close to South Congress and the host was nice, but unfortunately, this was my worst experience with Airbnb. The bedroom smelled of cat urine and the entire place had a dirty feel. The host made multiple comments about not lowering the AC unit too much even thoug…

Response from Karin:
We were stunned to read this review, as our interactions with Mr. Gannon and his wife (text communication prior to visit, brief meeting when they arrived) had been very pleasant. We showed them the suite and chatted about nearby attractions. - Mr. Gannon never communicated any concerns to us during his visit, by telephone, text or in person. - There has *never* been a cat in the guest suite. The only dog visitor (a family member's) is infrequent and was last here two months before Mr. Gannon's visit, since which time the suite was booked every weekend, with positive reviews from all guests. Clearly no animal odors. - Our conversation re air-conditioning entailed Mr. Gannon asking in advance whether it was working, and my responding that indeed it was. - The thermostat is in a highly visible location in the guest suite next to the bathroom door. Guests control the temperature, and we never enter the suite after guests have checked in. - High price? It is in line with other listings in the area, and with two rooms plus bathroom (600+ sf total), it is larger than many. - Cleanliness: One of our recent reviews commented that the place was "spotless." We clean carefully before/after every guest, dusting windowsills, bookshelves, ceiling fan blades, scrubbing kitchen area and bathroom, etc. There IS a vintage sink in the kitchenette; perhaps Mr. Gannon is referring to its permanent age spots. - By the time we read this review, we had new guests checked in; they had no complaints. The first we heard of any problem was a notification from AirBnB that Mr. Gannon wanted his money back. Perhaps he had an emergency that caused him to leave in a hurry (after sleeping here one night), so he came up with some lies to get a refund. I don't know how else to explain it. Thank you for reading. Karin

Very close to all the south Congress fun and would be a great SXSW location. Expect your uber drivers to be a little confused when it comes to picking you up or dropping you off but this a great value for a one or two person stay.

Karin’s place was great! It was only a 10 minute walk to the SoCo Neighborhood which had tons of restaurants, bars and shops. The porch was also really lovely!

Great location and really neat space. Only regret is not staying longer so I could explore more!
