This was the perfect house! Everything we needed was available to us. Lori was very accommodating and really helpful!!!
The house is amazing!!! Big enough for 10 people! Lori was a very gracious host! House is exactly as described, actually nicer than in the pictures! Lori even sent us wine and some goodies for my friend's bday! Very nice Neighborhood as well! Highly recommended! Will definitely go back! Thanks again Lori!!!
Lori's awesome. Pretty much everything that can be said already has been in the reviews before mine -- great host, great house, really good location (~25 mins to downtown via bus). Being in Austin for SXSW is always a great experience, but our stay @ Lori's this go 'round made it easily our best trip there to date.
Lori is an extremely gracious host who made our stay a delight! I was in Austin for a family wedding and had ten members of my extended family staying at the house. We were very comfortable and felt pampered by all the extra little touches Lori had left for us. She was easy to communicate with and very responsive to all our questions. We will definitely stay with Lori again when back in Austin!!
Our stay at Lori's house was all we hoped for and more! The basics were easy - Lori is a good communicator and I always felt confident about our reservation. We rented the house for a bachelorette party and when I was delayed coming into town, Lori was flexible and had no problem working with my friend as an alternate contact. She really impressed all of us with her welcoming nature and the special touches around the house. The location of the home was fantastic for getting into town and also getting out to Hill Country. We had a great time in Austin and highly recommend Lori's home!
Lori's home was beautiful and we all had a wonderful time at her place. She decorated her home beautifully for Christmas. My family had a wonderful time. Lori was very hospitable and made us feel very much at home. I will definately go back and stay there. It was close to everything near downtown, Zilker park, UTA and many other sights in the area. The neighborhood was very safe and quaint and strategically located to all the places near the downtown area. We all had a wonderful time spending our Christmas at Lori's home. Thanks again for having us and we will definately come back again.
I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful it was to stay at Lori's house. Not only was the house in immaculate condition but also Lori went out of her way to make our party feel extra welcome.
I rented this house for a bachelorette party in Austin and prior to coming, Lori had the house cleaned and even made the bride-to-be a welcome gift for the event! She also left beauty products in the bathrooms for the girls to use, and made sure there were clean towels for all of us. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome - I have never had such a gracious host as her!!
Communication with her was easy; she was available and easy to reach via phone and text when I needed her and check-in was a breeze. I was running late, so I had my other girl friend check in for me and she gave her a tour and thorough explanation of everything in the house.
The location was cute; very close to the 1st street food trucks and a 10 dollar cab ride for 4 girls to downtown.
If you need a house to stay in this is the house to be in! It was so beautifully decorated and has everything you will need in your home away from home!!
