A group of us stayed while in Austin on a business trip and the space couldn't have been more perfect. There is a co-op grocery store nearby, as well as Black's BBQ. It's a short drive to the airport or downtown. The space gets lots of light, the kitchen is great, and there is a nice outdoor space for coffee in the morning. The hosts were great, and really made sure the space was welcoming and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful home. I loved the little details like the handwritten note wishing me a happy birthday and the snacks in the fridge. I would stay here again!

Elizabeth's house is clean and lovely and feel like home. It's only 8-10 mins drive from downtown. Everything went great and as Elizabeth has always been helpful and responsive.

This was our second stay at this house this year, which says it all. We came back a second time because we loved it. Great place, great location.

Our stay with Elizabeth & Mike was amazing, house is really cozy, clean and beautiful and it's located in a really nice neighbourhood. It was a pleasure for us to meet Elizabeth, she was really friendly and gave us a lot of advices on local places to go. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back to this place

I'd recommend. Place is aesthetically pleasing, comfortable for hanging out and sleeping, and has the amenities needed for cooking. Hosts are very gracious (a personalized handwritten welcome note to greet me was a new and lovely touch in my Airbnb experiences). House is located next to some businesses which I thought might be funky when I first drove up, but they've done a super job of using fence and landscaping to keep it private and so the location was not an issue as it turned out. The house has some of those creaks that you hear downstairs when people are walking around upstairs -- as you'd expect in a place that is 100 years old -- but that didn't bother us at all. My kids loved the swing in the front yard. The hosts were incredibly responsive with excellent communication skills.

The house is in a lovely neighborhood and a short walk to Amy's, a great local ice cream parlor, as well as the UT campus. The house itself is clean and comfortable. And the great window in the living room is magnificent and gives a beautiful view of majestic live oaks. Matthew was generous to let us stay late our last day as we had a late flight. We were grateful for that accommodation.

Elizabeth & Mike User ProfileElizabeth & Mike is a superhost.

Two relaxed, active, lighthearted entrepreneurs who love living in sunny Austin and sharing our home with interesting people from all over the world! When we aren't working and hosting, we love playing and listening to music, cooking and eating, swimming in Texas's natural spring pools, spending quality time with friends and family, and visiting the ocean as much as possible.
