This was my first trip and stay at a home using AirBnB. The home was just as described - and so much better! The location was beautiful and serene, even for a Texas winter. I can only imagine what it would be during the spring or fall. Communication with the host was excellent, and they met me as I arrived. They were kind and curteous. The book they put together of local restaurants and recommendations came in very handy. I almost hated to leave! Whenever I return to Austin, I will be sure and book with this host again.
Wonderful hosts. The guest house is so comfortable. Close enough to everything you need but still feels like the country. We definitely recommend Nell and Chris' guest house. You won't regret it!
Nell and her husband Chris were very warm and helpful. They have a lovely guest house that made me and my mother feel very relaxed and at home. We enjoyed watching bunnies and cardinals eat in the backyard from dining area. Also, very close to Hamilton Pool which is a must see. And still close to a very nice shopping area. I highly recommend for anyone that wants to have a relaxing little getaway!
Nell was very welcoming towards us and my dog. She had a notebook filled with nearby groceries and other points of interest to visit around the area. Guest house was very clean with fresh bedding and towels. Sun room was relaxing during the day watching various wildlife outside. Great place for a group stay.
Everything was very clean and comfortable. The sun room was a great space to eat breakfast in every morning. Great scenery.
My husband and I wanted to take a quick trip for our anniversary down to the Hamilton Pool Preserve and needed a place close by. Nell was fantastic. The place was clean and exactly as described. She pointed out nearby facilities and things to do around the area. I would absolutely stay here again. Loved it.
I am 63 and have lived in Austin TX for 25 years. I was born and raised in Englewood, NJ and graduated from NYU. I am active locally in environmental and political issues. I am a reader, a hiker, a gardener and a cyclist.
A comfortable bed is important as is a clean and functional house. Prefer not 'to rough' it and like the comforts of home. Airbnb is a new form of travel lodging for me and I think it sounds great. Eager to experience it.
When traveling I'm always looking to enjoy the natural world mingled with some urban life.
