The house was comfortable and clean. It looks exactly as pictured. The kitchen was very user-friendly with lots of counter space and amenities.
The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and close to a lot of great restaurants. Michelle was very responsive in regard to my questions. She got back to me very quickly every time I contacted her, and she encouraged me to contact her any time if I had any other questions.
Great host. Listing description was accurate. Really nice neighborhood. Overall, the house was awesome and we had a great time staying there!
The house is exactly as pictured, better even! Amazing neighborhood and easy walk to the park and creek. Great kitchen, dining, and living areas. Wonderfully decorated and comfortable home.
This was a very stylish and comfortable home in a great part of town. The home was clean, spacious and charming, and had everything you would need. Water pressure and hot water were great too!
Great home with absolutely perfect location to downtown. Beatific screen deck and back yard was awesome for hanging out. I would absolutely stay here again.
This was our third time staying in Austin and this has by far been our favorite house to stay in. The large screened in porch sold us. The house is roomy and we really enjoyed our stay. Whenever we had a question or concern, our host was quick to repaint. There are a ton of restaurants and stores close to the house. Overall, great experience!
Michelle's Home is simply beautiful! Reminded me of a Dwell's Magazine cover. Spacious & super-comfortable! Located in a prime area and walking distance to town. I would most certainly recommend this place to business travelers or a family assisting any of the many tourist options Austin has to offer.
Dave & Michelle. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
