This was my first time using Airbnb, and I was not disappointed! Angel has a beautiful home in a great part of Austin. Her guidebook was filled with tips and tricks and expertise of the city that was extremely useful. My only wish is that I wasn't so busy that I could have enjoyed the house more.
Angel was my first Airbnb host and I had such an excellent experience. She was kind, welcoming, and helpful. The room was just as pictured and the house was clean and decorated very nicely. Her home is unique and I felt right at home. The neighborhood was quiet and easy to get to downtown. If you are coming by public transportation or walking from the downtown, I recommend walking up 11th instead of 12th, its just a nicer street. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and stay there again myself.
None of the reviews here are overblown, Angel was an incredible host, and I believe she takes joy in the opportunity to have new people in her home, and get to know them. She was generous with her time, supplied delicious breakfast options (cooked some fresh eggs myself), and even had time go out on Saturday night to see a few venues in Austin. A delightful couple days!
Angel was an amazing host and her home is a lovely place. Our room was very comfortable and not too hot, even it was the midst of Summer. Angel had arranged everything we could possibly ask for: breakfast, fresh eggs, maps of the area, towels, bikes, etc etc and she invited us to try her culinary experiments (she is a great cook!). Besides, she is a lot of fun to talk to. She showed us around her neighbourhood, where you can find many cool bars and great restaurants. I definitely recommend staying at Angel's: my friend and I only stayed for two nights, but I wouldn't have mind staying for a week!
This is a great location in Austin. Perfectly located away from the downtown madness yet easy to get into the fray within 5-10 minutes.
Homey place with real live chickens as advertised. Try their homemade eggs, they are fresher than the store!
Angel was super easy to get along with and suggested a few places I have never heard about being a longtime Austinite.
You will enjoy your stay!
Angel's "urban homestead" was just as she described it. Angel was most welcoming. She was in the midst of making some kind of jelly or chutney and the aroma was delightful. Our room was comfortable, even though a bit on the small side. The bathroom was clean and adequate. we were attending a conference at the university of Texas and the location was great. It was also nice that bikes were available. We would do it again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Angel's home for so many reasons!
1. It is an incredible location. We walked most everywhere and when we didn't, our Lyft rides only cost $5-7.
2. The home is comfortable and we absolutely felt at home. Angel has a lot of great extra touches including an area guide (which we used extensively) and unique amenities like the outdoor shower (incredibly refreshing after a bike ride around the area).
3. We got to spend a little time talking with Angel and even enjoyed some homemade soup made with ingredients from her garden. She recommended a dinner location (Lambert's-- YUM!) and an after dinner music joint (The White Horse) and we enjoyed both tremendously.
All in all, our time in Austin was more enjoyable thanks to Angel and her welcoming personality and home. Highly recommend! Thank you for everything!

About the Host, Angel
I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 13 years and am happy to point you to spots off the beaten path (Cathedral of Junk) to the sparkling jewels in the middle of the city (Barton Springs). I'm a User-Experience Designer for a Clean Tech/Energy Management start-up. I love the challenge and rewards of conserving in all aspects of life. I enjoy bike riding, brewing and drinking craft beer, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food. I've only been to 13 countries and 25 states. I most recently spent a few months in Hawaii living off grid on a living farm that is doing reforestation on the Big Island.
