This was a perfect location! The hosts were welcoming and the listing was just as described. I usually rent in this area during ACL, but rented this time for fun in the city. It's close to a lot of local restaurants, both walking and driving, and close to the park. The guest studio was comfortable for two of us. I'm sure it would be fine for three as well.
Cute little place that's in a great neighborhood. The place is well set up and has everything we needed. Beautiful place to wake up in.
I loved Austin and I loved staying here! The hosts were very helpful and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend staying with Margo and Gregory if you plan to visit Austin.
I love this place and Margo is awesome! For me, this location in Austin was perfectly placed. I was easily and quickly to where I needed to be in the city. The studio is very warm and inviting. It is perfectly decorated with a mix of industrial fixtures and lots of wood. It is privately tucked away in a cutely landscaped yard, giving the feel like I was returning to my own home rather than some hotel. I hope to stay here for all my future business trips to Austin!
We recently stayed at Margo's place in Austin and it was perfect!! The neighborhood had some of the most beautiful homes, straight from the pages of architectural digest. It rained most of our stay which was a bummer but we were able to walk to the movie theater and they had great umbrellas available for us to use. The room was very private and comfortable and the little extras (coffee, tea, cereal etc), were a wonderful surprise and much appreciated. It was in a great location, walking distance to amazing restaurants and the park! FIVE STARS!
So, this was my first Airbnb experience, and it surely won't be my last! It was a very positive experience. They really put together such a cute little space that provides you with all you'd need- AND more. Though I didn't take advantage of it, I was certainly impressed by the little extras they provided! There was creamer in the fridge for coffee, instant oatmeal, tea, ect- there were even 2 large umbrellas by the door.
The privacy this place provides is great, as it's far enough away from there house. And,most importantly,the bed is the BEST!!! I slept like a rock all three nights! The blanket and pillows were also so cozy and comfy!
If I come back around to Austin, I will surely check the availability with them first! Nice people to deal with, to boot. I have only nice things to say about this!!!
We are from Austin, TX and both my husband and I teach at the University of Texas. He is also an architect and I have a strategy firm that works on social impact issues. We especially enjoy being able to walk and bike to many of central Austin's parks, restaurants and music venues.
