Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed in a group of 5 friends at Earlynn's place. The house is perfect, has everything we needed and also has transportation near for all Austin. Great place to stay!

    March 2014
    Response from Earlynn:

    I am not usually looking to accommodate a whole bunch of people in a small house but Leo won my heart...I mean just look at that picture! And Leo was as sweet as he looks....even sent air beds ahead! The place was nice and clean when he left.
    Thanks Leo. the light will be on for next year at SXSW if you need it.

  • This house is in such an amazing location! We walked to everything. It is about 30 minutes to walk to SoCo or downtown on Lamar....we are big walkers though!
    There are train tracks pretty close to the house so if you are a light sleeper like I am, make sure you bring ear plugs. I happened to have some with me and after that slept great!
    If you are going to go grocery shopping, make sure you bring the bag in the pantry with you so you don't have to pay for one at the store.
    Lacy and Earylynn were very attentive to anything that we needed, although we didn't ask for much! Truly a great place to stay and would stay here again for sure!

    Response from Earlynn:

    Brianna was a great guest! Thanks for reminding me about the train tracks...i never hear it much anymore. We will get some earplugs just to have on hand for our light sleeping guests.
    And, please, come back anytime. Thanks for your visit.

  • We had a great time at Earlynn's place. It was so cute and comfortable, very clean, with lots of natural light. The amenities are very nice - the little corner office, the kitchen, washer and dryer... and yoga mats! YAY! After a couple of days my son was already calling it "our home". :) We'll definitely come back to the peaceful place. Thank you so much Earlynn and Lacy!

    Response from Earlynn:

    Of course it is your home as well my dears! Doesn't every home have yoga mats?
    Thanks for coming, Caroline. So glad you had a great time!

  • I rented the place for my parents to stay in while they visited us here in Austin (we live in the same neighborhood as a peaceful place). It was just perfect. My parents who are older just loved having their own little place with a kitchen which was set up with fruit and coffee. It was a cold weekend and the hosts left the place nice and toasty and had the lights on for us. The place was spotless and my parents who can be quite picky about accommodations were just thrilled. Thanks, Earlynn and Lacy!

    December 2013
    Response from Earlynn:

    Always happy to accommodate family especially the older members. We all need lots of nurturing, so it should be all those things picky people notice.
    Thanks for bringing them by, Maggie

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the peaceful place in south Austin! The house is so clean, comfortable and relaxing! I arrived in Austin after midnight on a cold, rainy night and Lacy had left the heat on for me. So thoughtful! I can't wait to return and couldn't recommend this place enough. Thank you Earlynn and Lacy!

    November 2013
    Response from Earlynn:

    always glad to be the welcome inn at the end of a cold rainy night. Lacy will be happy to leave the light on for you anytime, Robin.

  • We stayed for a long weekend and had a great visit. The place was very clean and well maintained. Great privacy and a nice quiet neighborhood. I will definitely be back next time I am in town!

    November 2013
    Response from Earlynn:

    Glad to be your get away. Just give us a ring when you want to do it again!
    Thanks for being great guests!

  • the peaceful place is exactly that, a lovely space with great feng shui. the outdoor area provided privacy and beauty. the fabulous music selection and fully stocked kitchen were a nice touch, and thanks so much for the coffee and snacks! :) The bed was very comfortable too. I will seek you out again the next time I'm in Austin!
    Peace, Dena

    Response from Earlynn:

    Great! Just what we were aiming for! Glad you took advantage of the calm in the storm.

  • Earlynn's Peaceful Place was just that - I had such a nice stay in this private, clean, comfortable space. Complete with laundry, a yoga mat for morning stretches, a sliding glass door off my bedroom that opened out to the sweetest little patio and garden area. I travel often for work, and to have a relaxing place to come back to after stressful meetings was a dream. The neighborhood was charming to stroll around in, and I found amazing food and coffee options within just a few blocks. Picnik for Paleo inspired breakfast and Barley Swine for amazing dinner were top of my list. Austin has much to offer and this is a great home base for any area adventures! I hope to be back again.

    Response from Earlynn:

    Sarah, i am so glad we could give a place of comfort to a weary traveler.
    Come back any time!

  • It truly is a peaceful place! The perfect spot for a relaxing weekend getaway in Austin--lovely space with lots of light, beautiful garden, and in a fun, walkable neighborhood. Earlynn is a thoughtful and organized hostess--special touches like tasty coffee and a handwritten welcome note made the stay memorable. Highly recommended!

    Response from Earlynn:

    Each guest is like an old friend I have never met. I glad you enjoyed your stay in the peace.
    Thank you.

  • I stayed at the Peaceful Place for ACL 2nd weekend and in spite of the rain, thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Directions were clear and concise and Earlynn was absolutely wonderful and patient. Although I originally booked the place for a month, I needed to make a couple of changes and she was quick to respond to my queries. The place itself is fantastic too - very close to where you want to be. The wifi connection was recently upgraded and all the amenities you need. Do you really need 500 tv stations? Not if you plan on actually going out and doing things in one if the greatest US cities! I recommend staying at the peaceful place even just 1 night, if not 20 or 30. Great neighborhood and well, just fantastical. Thanks again Earlynn!!

    Response from Earlynn:

    I am glad you made it! It was a pleasure having you. Come again!
