Other Things to Note
Little garden in the back. We believe in recycling and composting. Also, we provide canvas/reuseable bags for shopping as plastic single use bags are illegal in Austin.
We share our home with our kitten, Carla Sagan, and our Australian Shepherd puppy, Shula.
No smoking in the house. Please be quiet and respectful if you come in late (I wake up super early for work).
Such amazing hosts, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Very friendly and accommodating - definitely recommed staying there to anyone in Austin!
Great experience!! Ashley and Phillip are great and warm people, even though we hadn't the oppotunity to talk too much (i was the whole day out). The house is súper clean and the room is big with a really comfortable bed. Their pets are lovely too, i was in love with their cat. I truly recommended to stay with them.
Ashley is a great host! Her and Phillip are friendly and easy going. The house is clean and organized, and the room has a large desk and tv. The neighborhood is centrally located with plenty of things to do close by, and parking is readily available. I will definitely consider staying here again the next time I'm in Austin.
Ashley and her significant other were very nice - I had everything I needed upon arrival, came and went as I pleased, and felt comfortable doing my thing while I was in town. The room was great - comfy bed, large desk, cable TV, and an wall-covering bookshelf. (I definitely read some of the articles in one of the Austin travel guides.) The entire house was clean, well decorated and organized. Their dog was really excited about life, and their cat was chill.
Also, I enjoyed the vibe of the neighborhood. There is a great restaurant/cafe practically across the street - great for studying, working, catching up with friends, sitting outside, and/or listening to music. I went twice.
A casa tem decoração inspiradora, é confortável, limpa e organizada. Fica numa região sossegada. Tinha tudo o que eu precisava para me acomodar bem! Pude manter minha rotina.
A cachorrinha e a gatinha são adoráveis! Mantive elas sempre perto!
Não calculei a duração do vôo e a Ashley permitiu remanejar os dias. Só pediu para eu me atentar ao horário, pois teria outro visitante chegando.
Meu namorado mora na cidade e ela também permitiu que ele ficasse comigo durante os dias que me hospedei.
Como tínhamos nossa rotina, acabei nem encontrando eles durante esses dias! E mesmo assim não me faltou nada e nem me incomodei com nada. Assim mantive o mesmo respeito à rotina deles.
Por perto tem mercado e alguns restaurantes e cafeteria. E tive facilidade para me locomover para lugares mais longes também.
Ashley's home was nicely decorated, clean and organized. I love the details in her historical home and Art displayed. I hardly got a chance to socialize with Ashley and her boyfriend but for sure they made my stay pleasurable and would stay here again when in Austin.
A casa é bem localizada, distante do centro, mas é fácil o acesso via ônibus, mais fácil ainda é o acesso para a Universidade! A Ashley deixa o hóspede completamente a vontade! Livre acesso! Além disso, ela foi muito prestativa, ajudando em minha mudança!
