Kathleen's place had absolutely everything you needed and more. . You get bikes, beach towels and everything else you might need for exploring Austin. We had a great night's rest. The bed and linens were so comfortable. Highly recommend staying here.

What a lovely experience was my 4 night stay. Best sleep and, bed ever! Kathleen's home is so peaceful, clean, and the efficiency room felt very spacious and was quiet and cheerful, the A/C was great, and absolutely silent. There is every amenity en suite, that one could possibly require. All praises for the hostesses kindness, like calling me and picking up the bike on an unseasonably hot day. as well as the great recommendations for shopping. Kathleen's framed original artwork, and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) fiber TV were appreciated, too. Dee Portland, OR

Kathleen was a wonderful host and welcomed us as we arrived. Kathleen has thought of everything for this apartment. Lots of coffee, snacks, sunscreen, shampoo, everything to make your stay more comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked very well so we slept great. The location is perfect, short uber ride anywhere we wanted to go. We also used the bikes which was such a great addition to the apartment.

Enjoyed the weekend stay! The place is not big, but very cozy. Great attention to details: fully stuffed, with nice, high quality supplies. Mattress is very, very comfortable. Be prepared that kitchenette is rather tiny, w/o a dining table and chairs. Host is very nice to deal with, and within a reach to help you. Great value for money. Definitely recommend for a short stay!

Kathleen User ProfileKathleen is a superhost.

I have lived in Austin most of my life. My family moved here in 1958 when my father got a teaching job at UT. I spent my twenties in beautiful Boulder, CO then came back home. I feel fortunate to live in one of the coolest neighborhoods in one of the most interesting and livable cities. I am retired other than managing the two short-term rentals spaces in my triplex. I love meeting the guests. Hearing what people from Europe to Australia observe about Austin has broadened my perspective.
