Was just in Austin for a couple days, but my stay was great. She was a great host and the place was amazing. Will definitely stay here again when I am back.
Comfortable, tasteful, and spotlessly clean. The living room is on the small side and very basic, but the bedrooms are nice size and the kitchen is well sized for eat-in. Neighborhood is gorgeous with lots of great eating spots. There is a martial arts class, 2X a week, held on the floor above the Casita but class is late morning and late afternoon, so no issue with noise - and there wasn't much noise anyway. Loved the basket of toiletries- nice touch of luxury. Gisele was a wonderful hostess. Overall a really great place.
The Casita on Hether was fabulous. It was spotless and just like in the photos. It was more than we hoped for and in a great location. Gisela was friendly and helpful. She even brought us some bug spray when we were sitting in the yard. I would definitely recommend her casita to all my friends.
My husband and I stayed at the Casita for our anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Gisela is a kind and gracious host. She met us when we arrived and walked us through the house. She was available to us during our trip but we were also given sufficient privacy. The Casita had everything we needed. We really only needed to bring person items. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was in a quiet neighborhood. The Casita was exactly what we wanted, and needed, during our time in Austin. We hope to return soon!
Gisela was terrific and the her place is better than the pictures, not there is anything wring with them. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable place in Austin that's near a cool park and great restaurants and bars I'd say do yourself a favor and go with this spot. My dad and I were in town for Moto GP at COTA and we loved coming home every day after being at the track every day and relaxing in this place. Really just wonderful setting and I think I will look to try and book this again with Gisela. Who is super friendly and cool by the way not to mention super easy to communicate with, pleasant and helpful.
Great stay! I booked the Casita for my parents. We live around the corner, so it was really convenient for them to be able to walk back and forth instead of driving to and from a hotel. Perfect from start to finish - they loved it. Gisela is a wonderful host. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was terrific. I'm certain my folks will want to stay here next time they visit. Thanks so much!
