"The location is great. It is not far from downtown and yet you feel like you could be far from the city in the hill country, with beautiful views from the balcony. And delicious tacos at TacoDeli nearby!! I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends." -Brad (May 2015)
We strive for 5 star ratings and like to have the utmost transparency in our listing. So you're aware, here are a couple critiques of our space:

-Loft (2nd bedroom) is blocked from vision but not sound (privacy walls but not fully enclosed)

Interaction with Guests
We love to meet people from around the world and enjoy a good conversation during check-in but respect the privacy of those who would rather just get the quick run down and check-in. We are available at all times via cell phone in case you need anything.
The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. You're a 4 minute walk into the Greenbelt and the view makes you feel like you're out in the wilderness even though you're so close to the city. The location keeps you away from the traffic by access from the feeder roads to anywhere you need to go!
Public Transit available on the street outside of the condo complex and Cars2Go are always near.
