Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Had a great stay. Last minute plans had me working all day in Austin, and Mo was more than accommodating to last minute reservations (3 hours before I got off work), and I had a very restful night's sleep, and there were towels waiting to boot.

    March 2014
  • I arrived in town 30 mins before I told Mo I would (4:30 instead of 5) and she was accommodating to let me in early. Must love dogs to stay here, my bf and I do so no issue for us at all. The shared bathroom was my only concern when booking, but turned out to not be an issue at all; was always open for us and very clean. Hair dryer, so you don't have to pack one. My only problem was that in the picture there are blinds on the big window in the room, but in reality those have been removed. Now, it is on the second story and there are no houses behind this one, but it still irked me that someone may be looking in.

  • My stay in Austin was great. The Library Room was (website hidden) was very hospitable and even picked me up from the aiport and drove me downtown in the mornings so I could check out SXSW. Her dogs Huggy Bear, George and Little are super cute and very friendly, George especially loves belly rubs. I enjoyed relaxing on the porch overlooking the pool, very serene and calm, much needed after all the SXSW shenanigans.

  • Mo was very friendly and interesting to talk to, and her dogs are CUTE! Nice room to stay in for a night or two in Austin.

    March 2014
  • A coworker and I stayed at Mo's during (website hidden) was exceptionally kind to us and even drove us to downtown in the mornings - probably not something she can do for everyone, but the timing was right for us. She's very easy going and her 3 small dogs are adorable. I had the Library, and my coworker took the comfy room. Both rooms were comfy and we slept like babies.
    We look forward to visiting Austin again and hope to see Mo when we do.
    She's a wonderful host.

    March 2014
  • I didn't get to meet Mo, as she was out of town, but her roommate was very helpful. The house is large and comfortable, the "library" bedroom (lined with bookshelves!) quiet, clean, and very comfy. I managed to dip my toes into the pool when outside temps were about 65F, but unfortunately Austin's cold this week! I also enjoyed Mo's 3 friendly dogs.

    I really appreciate the use of organic and scent-free products in the house, as I'm allergic to perfumes (not to mention they're horrible for the environment and everyone's health).

    I was here only one night, as I'd had to change my flight and ended up with one-day gaps on both ends of my trip. It was a pleasant stay!

    March 2014
  • Great atmosphere, sweet dogs. Would definitely book again.

    February 2014
  • At the price, Mo's room can't be beat. She was very accommodating and the room was clean and neat.

    February 2014
  • We had a short stay in Mo`s big house, only two nights. It was nice, quiet and private there. She have very cute and friendly dogs. We recommend to stay by Mo!

    February 2014
  • My experience with Mo was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely pleasant and laid back. Went out of her way to make me feel at home and showered me with amenities. I could not have asked for a better first AirBnB experience and will DEFINITELY be staying with her again if I need to travel to Austin. ...and her dogs are the absolute best. Huggy Bear, Little and George are the most friendly and personable pups you could ever imagine and are very respectful of boundaries.

I love living in Austin, TX and meeting new people. I am always happy to let folks know what to see and do while in town. Austin is a great place to visit. I have a friendly, laid back household with a pool and three small dogs. I like the outdoors, photography, music, architecture, sustainable design, and film. I am a marketing consultant and like to work with companies that are progressive. Here are my three listings:
