I come to Austin every 4-6 weeks for work, and I'm certain that I will just stay here going forward if it's open. This really felt like a home away from home. You are literally so close to everything, but with the added benefit of feeling like you're in a secluded, quiet and beautiful cottage that's just yours when you pull up the driveway.
We stayed at Veronica's place for a weekend in June. She made it easy as possible and we had privacy as needed. Her neighborhood is in a beautiful part of Austin and we walked everywhere. Walked to the natural spring pool at nearby park and all the shops along South Congress. All done in the hot 90 degree weather. We are not used to the heat being from SF. All in all a perfect weekend get away.
Veronica and the house (and Zeus with his little moustache) are everything we love about airbnb. Full of character, the host and loft totally enhanced our stay in Austin and really contributed to a great experience. We were sad we had to leave to stay in a boring hotel!
The facilities were good - great shower, towels, rain ponchos and Veronica found us an umbrella which was appreciated with the storms. A beer in the fridge too, which was appreciated after a long travel in the humidity.
Loads of suggestions of places to go that Veronica though we might be into and fun chats in the day. We also loved the birds, cacophony of frogs and the plants. A little home from home. The location was a bit out of town but we liked the retreat and the area. Communication was great and Veronica was flexible with arrangements. We also enjoyed the poster collection! We'd definitely go back.
We had a great stay in Veronica's cottage. It was exactly as described - a real taste of Austin. It was just the right size for the 3 of us that stayed there. The location is great! It's walking distance to SoCo, the Congress Ave bridge, and downtown. We would definitely stay here again!
Good location and very comfortable stay. Thanks, Veronica! There were a few beers in the fridge when we got there, and cereal bars too.
Staying at Veronica's was one of the reasons why our Austin trip was so memorable and fantastic. The place was filled with so much character and was in a very quiet yet convenient location. We didn't have a car and took Uber rides everywhere which were easy to get. The house has everything you need (toiletries, hair dryer, towels, AC!!! etc.) and there were two Lone Star beers waiting for us when we got there -- very clutch on a hot Spring day in Austin.
Veronica was such a delightful and accommodating host and knows the ins and outs of Austin having lived here for 30+ years. I'd definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a charming place to stay.
