We stayed at Megan's cute and comfortable house for sxsw interactive/film. We were one couple and two singles and the place was perfect for our group. Location is fantastic--we were able to walk to Congress and walk or bike or Uber to downtown quite easily. The house is very sweet and tidy and Megan was a terrific host. She was easy to communicate with and left us lots of local info. We'd definitely recommend Megan's place to friends visiting Austin.
Megan's house is wonderfully located just a 5 min walk from the heart of SoCo. As a first time visitor to the city, SoCo is Austin at its best - great food, music and people watching. We walked to downtown and back each day for SXSW festivities, about 20 minutes each way, but it seemed to go by much faster. There is also a great running path that runs along the river, just about 15 minutes away.
The house is spacious and has classic southern character. It's just the kind of place you want to open the windows, let the sun in and sip coffee in the morning, then rock music, open a bottle of wine and do some cooking in the evening. Megan was an amazing host, highly responsive and made us feel right at home.
This was my first meeting with both the US and Airbnb, and the experience has been nothing less then amazing! Who would ever want to stay at a hotel when Megan makes you feel som welcomed?!
It's a lovely house, in a quiet neighborhood. The house is clean, practical and the beds are nice to sleep in. She even got a wonderful porch outside - which was perfect to have a little alone time before you go to sleep.
Megan also went the extra mile in making me feel welcome. She had left a lovely note, a refrigerator full of food she told me that I can eat from and even a bottle of wine! Wow.
So thank you Megan, I had a great experience!

About the Host, Megan
I live in a charming bungalow in the heart of Austin with my husband and adorable 1 year old daughter! We previously lived in San Francisco for 5 years and got the bug for international travel there. We have since traveled to Asia, South America, Europe, Canada and Central America and can't wait to continue to explore the world!
