  • Stephany was a very nice and welcoming host. She left me her apartment for my own and she was always available to check if everything was ok. She worked a lot by the time I was there but she never hesitates to pick me up downtown.
    And the bed is awesome!

  • Walking distance to ACL which was perfect. Stephany was nice enough to check in to make sure I had things to do with my down time.

  • I stayed at Stephs place for 5 days in late May 2012. Her place was full of character, which also included a very spacious outdoor space where the worlds great problems were discussed and solved. Walking to downtown only took around 15 minutes, and there were many great coffee shops, and eateries around the area as well. While feeling adventurous I also went to a drop-in yoga class which was no more than a 10 minute walk away. Steph was a great host, and a very intelligent person with some mad chit-chat skills. Would definitely recommend and would stay there if I find myself back in Austin again. Five Stars!

  • Stephany was a truly amazing host! Her place is a gem, deep in the heart of Old West Austin - an incredibly beautiful, southernly romantic, and quaint area to stay. The old oak tree does not disappoint. I fell in love with Austin and her place immediately.

    All amenities exactly as promised... it was Stephany herself that really elevated this trip... with her Texas hospitality.

    She picked me up from the bus station, dropped me off at the airport, and shared tips and locales that gave me a completely local Austin experience - aside from the obligatory stroll down the dirty 6th, of course.

    I highly recommend her place to anyone who wants to discover what the real Austin has to offer.

    I can't wait to go back.

  • Stephany was a wonderful host – we were both working our butts off at SXSW but got to hang out a little, and she's awesome, sweet, generous, and helped me out with all the questions I had about Austin. I hope we'll stay in touch!

    And: her apartment was perfect! The bed is great, there's storage space, a big kitchen and everything you'll need. It's in a beautiful, quiet area too, only a short walk to Wholefoods, and super easy to get Downtown. Highly recommended!

  • The memory foam bed was awesome. The host was awesome-er. She even invited me behind-the-scenes to a network television TV show being filmed in Austin. Super friendly. Would stay here again.
