No smoking! No pets!
This place was great! Perfect location for our stay and the house was very clean and well-appointed. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, etc. The wifi worked perfectly.
The second bedroom is bunk beds and the second bathroom has just a tub with a shower head/handle, so if you're looking for a fast/easy use of the second bathroom/shower just be aware of that. It's sort of European-style.
Just two of us stayed here and it was perfect. We loved the place and would definitely stay again - I may be re-booking it now for our visit again next year!
Don't miss Picnik coffee shop/truck, just a 5 minute drive from this house - best butter coffee and Paleo goodies in Austin!
Had an exceptional experience staying here.
The house was perfect - clean, well-designed, and full of great amenities. It's a great relaxing place to spend downtime on a vacation.
The location could not have be better - walkable to everything, so much amazing food close by, and in a quiet and charming neighborhood.
Checking in and out was a breeze.
Could not recommend highly enough!
We absolutely loved our stay in the summer house. The decor was simple and welcoming. The location could not have been more perfect- we could walk anywhere we wanted to go. We loved the deck and backyard, and enjoyed a few cocktails in the sunshine. The house was stocked with anything we could have needed. Such a perfect and charming spot!
We had a wonderful visit at Elisa's house. It had very comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen and was in the perfect location, as everyone has mentioned. She had great guide books to give you some different ideas about what to do in Austin.Loved the bathtub! and the spacious shower. Lots of extras that aren't usually available when you visit Airbnbs. hand cream,soap etc. And she didn't skimp on the toilet paper! It's usually rationed and I have to admit I appreciated that. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting you. perhaps next time?Thanks so much!
I recently had the pleasure of staying several days at Elisa's lovely home in Austin and only have positive things to say about my stay. If you are looking for a comfortable, well-maintained home in a safe neighborhood, close enough to walk to many great restaurants and shops, then Eco-chic 2/2 is for you.
I was in Austin visiting with family and the house proved to be a perfect base for me. The second bedroom and bath made it comfortable when my son and daughter joined me for a few days. The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to cook, but we took advantage of all the great restaurants nearby for most of our meals.
One evening we hosted several family members on the large back deck with pizza and beer. That was also a great place to finish our days - sitting under the stars and enjoying the warm breeze.
I met the manager Ann, while I was there and she was helpful and responsive to any questions I had.
All in all a great stay, and I highly recommend Elisa's house if you lucky enough to be traveling to Austin.
bottle of wine was a nice touch but i never got to it.
wonderful neighborhood. surrounded by great restaurants. 5 minute walk to South Congress
About the Host, Elisa
I grew up in Texas and graduated from UT, and haven't had the chance to live in Texas since. When my sister decided to attend UT, my husband and I knew we would want visit regularly since we both love Austin- the people, the music, the food, etc. I hope you love it as much as we do!
