Interaction with guests

The neighborhood

Cherrywood Neighborhood, or what AirBNB calls Upper Boggy Creek is great for many reasons. 1) Laid back, friendly feel. 2) Quiet, yet lively. 3) Great Eat, Drinks and Open Spaces that are easily accessible. 4) Lots of trees and safe walk-able streets.

Many Capital Metro (bus / rail) stops are scattered around the apartment and can get you where your going, anywhere around the city for a low cost. Fare, Fasten and Yellow Cab are also always available for a fee.

T.M.'s place is just as lovely as the pictures suggest. I was visiting from Boston for a conference, and so I was gone a lot, but when I was at home, I was so delighted to have such a beautifully appointed, cozy cozy pad. I slept like a dream because the mattress is great. Their place was also an easy bus ride from campus and thus from down town, as well (and would have been an easy 1.5 mile walk in different shoes...). Last, the neighborhood is also really quaint and was nice for evening and morning walks. I would definitely recommend staying at T.M.'s.

This place worked well for us as a home-base as we explored Austin for the first time. Not fancy but a good value in a quiet area, walking distance to a handful of restaurants/bars/coffee.

Super quiet, super cozy and comfy place! I went for SXSW and it was awesome to have a place of refuge away from the craziness. It's also right around the corner from a really great coffee shop, bbq joint(s) and eclectic eatin' / drinkin'. Such a good experience!
