We stayed four nights at Eleanor's lovely "home away from home" which is located in a beautiful neighborhood walking distance from popular restaurants, walking trails, Zilker Park and downtown. Eleanor was a wonderful hostess and although the private room is located behind her home, we had total privacy. There was a small refrigerator, TV, Internet access, coffeemaker--everything we needed. The room and bathroom were spotless and decorated in Austin style. The Nacho Libre poster sold us when we were initially looking for a place. It was just my husband and I, but we could have brought our teenage son and would have had plenty of room. That's our plan for the Spring. We will definitely be back! Thanks, Eleanor!
Great location, guest house, and host! Enjoyed visiting friends, walking to Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Deep Eddy, and Town Lake. We definitely hope to stay again sometime.
Eleanor was a wonderful host. Even before we got there we felt welcome. Eleanor immersed us in local culture from the moment we arrived with local treats and southern hospitality and ensured our stay was as easy as possible with tonnes of information on local food and activities.
We had 6 adults staying and we we all fit comfortably on the 3 double beds. The amenties were great, we didn't feel like we were missing anything. We stayed there to attend Austin City Limits and we were just a walk away from Zilker Park which was really handy. You're a walk away from some local convenience stores and a short drive from town.
I would absolutely recommend this studio for anyone attending a festival at Zilker Park or wanting to experience Austin. Eleanor was a brilliant host and is a genuinely kind and caring person who will make your stay a memorable one. We just loved Eleanor and know you will too!
Eleanor was awesome, the overall pad was awesome. Our host took the time to provide little goodies such as snacks, drinks, great coffee etc. that catered to our interests (vegan). Everything was super clean and comfortable. Great time!
This guest house is decorated in a tasteful modern style that I found very relaxing. It's in a great location in the Barton Springs area. Eleanor responded quickly during the reservation process and was extremely accommodating for both me and my dogs. Definitely recommend!
