Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Maureen's place is lovely! She's got quite the eye for design. We stayed there last week during the SXSW festival, and it was fantastic to be able to simply walk downtown without having to deal with cabs, shuttles, etc. - close to everything but yet still in a quiet neighborhood. Although, to be honest, we were probably most excited about the proximity to the flagship Whole Foods! We'd definitely stay again if the need arose.

  • The house is really nice. The room was huge, was perfect for my stay at SXSW.
    They provided towels and soap and shampoo etc just like a hotel. :)

    The location is about a 30min walk from the convention centre, so I was driving in everyday, but it was close to some cool bars on W6 st!

    The only thing I could fault is the shower is getting a bit old, and pressure wasn't great.

    Overall very happy with my experience and my stay and I would stay again.

  • It was great staying at Maureen's place. Her house is BEAUTIFUL - full of character and amazing interior designs. My husband and I were also lucky enough to get a fabulous restaurant recommendation - so we had a yummy night out. The room is actually quite large, so there was plenty of room for all of our luggage (and shopping!). Very well located - wish we had stayed longer.

  • I had a lovely stay in Maureen's perfectly appointed house. The room is cozy and spacious, and the rest of the house has every amenity a traveler could ask for. Plus, Maureen has wonderful taste, and her interior decorating is gorgeous!
    While I didn't have the chance to spend much time with Maureen, her husband was extremely friendly and welcoming - they'll be great hosts!

  • Maureen was sweet! She happily suggested great places to eat and things to check out around Austin. The room was spacious and comfortable. The location of her house is excellent! It was just a few blocks from Whole Foods and a bunch of awesome restaurants and bars.I would stay here again for sure.

  • I had a perfect stay with Maureen and Jason. Check in and out was a breeze and Maureen was accommodating both in letting me book in last minute and letting me check out late when my next location plans changed.
    The house and room are amazing - lots of character and impeccably furnished and styled by Maureen. Maureen and Jason were friendly, helpful and did everything possible to welcome me to Austin - even inviting me out to a concert and dinner. Their housemate Melissa was equally lovely and so generously took me pumpkin carving which was the most fun I've had in a long time!!
    I was working from home for most of my stay, the room is huge, comfortable and was perfect for my work. I felt I had a lot of privacy and excellent internet connection. The finishing touches like extra toiletries and notepaper on the desk is what made the room just that next level of lovely. The location was excellent, even more so because I don't drive. The flagship Wholefoods grocery is so close and is a tourist attraction (so much deliciousness it was almost dangerous being so close because of all the things I wanted buy!). I walked downtown twice and it's a nice, easy stroll.
    Truly thank you to you all for welcoming me to Austin, it has been one of my most memorable stays. Come visit me in Australia!!
