The "birdhouse" was beautiful, immaculate, comfortable, and filled with really nice quality linens, dishes, bath products, etc. Dolina was very sweet, giving us our space, and being available if we needed help with anything. She left organic chocolate, tangerines, bottled water, organic 1/2 and 1/2 and coffee, teas, etc...very thoughtful. In addition, there's a great little sitting area out front, and two blocks away there's a great gastropub for a good meal, and an amazing taco place for the best cheap eats in Austin. The accomodations were more than we expected.
My only word of caution is that the neighborhood felt a little questionable. As two women using the bus to get around, and having to walk from the bus stop, we were a little nervous coming home after dark. Otherwise, everything was fantastic.
Clean, modern, and cozy. Perfect for 2 people who spent most of the day and night experiencing Austin but then prefer a quiet and private place to relax and rest. Dolina, the host, was gracious to provide complimentary coffee and tea and oranges!
Best location if you enjoy being close to some of the coolest shopping and restaurants. Great shopping and eateries along South Congress and a quick drive to Torchy's, the best breakfast tacos in Austin!
This beautiful spot was the perfect addition to our holiday in Austin. Dolina is friendly and welcoming, and the casita was bright, clean and quiet. Just a little bit off the main South Congress strip it's a great location for those visiting Austin.
I'm looking forward to staying here again!
My husband and I had an amazing time in the birdhouse and Dolina was a wonderful host. Their home is on a beautiful lot and the "birdhouse" is the perfect balance of well-lit, comfortable and open, yet also nice and contained, private and homey. The loft is a fun extra little space and the bed was very comfortable- we slept so well. Close to Soco, S Lamar, and other favorite Austin streets/spots. Definitely would highly recommend this place to stay for anyone and everyone :)
Dolina was so accommodating! She asked for our preferences on things before we arrived and we felt totally welcome.
The Birdhouse Casita is charming and so perfect for people visiting Austin who want to feel like they live there. Dolina had local books for us to read about and get familiar with the city. The house was clean and in working order. The neighborhood is quiet, but just around the corner from cafes and bus stops to anywhere.
Dolina was friendly and available, while not being overbearing or intrusive. She anticipated our questions and put us at ease. What a great host and place!
Clean, comfortable, and outfitted with everything we needed. Whole process was very smooth, couldn't have worked out better. Thank you!
i love the birdhouse! dolina was a wonderful host and i can't wait to go back! be sure to walk to summermoon for great coffee (the moon milk is addictive) and be sure to spend time in the crow's nest!
The casita was perfect for our stay in Austin, and Dolina was a wonderful host—cozy nook for doing work or reading, little kitchen stocked with anything you might need, and a great collection of books—we'll definitely stay here again next time we're in town!
Loved staying here! Dolina has amazing taste as the birdhouse had a creative use of space and gorgeous interior design. Within walking distance to the bus-- and Torchy's Tacos. Would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for the hospitality Dolina!
Nice clean place with pretty much everything you could need. Dolina was flexible with my arrival time and responsive. Thanks!
