Susan and Diane were fantastic hosts. They really went above and beyond-- we arrived late on New Years Eve to Austin and Diane was kind enough to offer us a ride in order to make our dinner reservation on time and avoid tricky parking in Downtown Austin!
The place is so clean and homey and has everything you could possible need. Snacks and drinks in the fridge, great shower, toiletries, TVs, comfortable beds. Walking distance to lots of great stuff. Quiet safe neighborhood. Really highly recommend it!
We loved our stay at Susan's. The location is centrally located and within walking distance of great restaurants, food truck parks & shops. We could not have asked for a better place or host. Susan was so thoughtful and with the smallest of details...suggestions for restaurants, landmarks, anything! Our next visit and stay will be at Treetop.
The Treetop Guest House is luxurious. The beds are super comfortable, the decor is lovely, and it is spacious. When we wanted to do things together there were these great sitting areas upstairs and downstairs, as well as on the upper deck....felt like we were sitting up in the trees with the birds. Then when we were needing space, it is designed to feel like two separate apartments, one upstairs and one downstairs. It is great to have that luxury...and having the mini kitchens both upstairs and downstairs gave us a chance to have coffee on our own in the morning. I really appreciated that. The entire place is light and feels clean, no clutter...just (website hidden) upstairs and downstairs was nice, and super easy way that they did private entry code and wifi code. The place was full of little gifts...both mini fridges had nice surprises, candy on the bed tables and the toiletry items were so nice that we went on amazon and ordered some for ourselves before we left. The neighborhood is beautiful, super close to all that we wanted to do at zilker park, and downtown...everything minutes away. We even got good movie tips from Susan and Diane. Next time we come we plan to reserve tennis courts at the South Austin tennis club, that is so close it makes sense to walk rather than drive. The house was so pretty, the pictures just couldn't capture it on the website.... and the pictures were the reason we picked it. Plan to go back soona and stay in the Treetop.
Susan was easy to communicate with, friendly and accommodating. Absolutely no complaints. The guest-house is a quiet, spacious place to stay. Very relaxing and centrally located too. Top marks!
Susan's guesthouse was great. She was extremely accommodating and communicative, the place was very clean and quite spacious, the location was great, and the beer, water, coffee and treats Susan left in the guesthouse were a nice touch. I recommend staying here to anyone looking for a nice, quiet place to stay that is still close to South Congress and lots of restaurants, coffee shops, and stores.
Susan is a wonderful host. The Treetop is beautifully furnished and oh so comfy, and the location is excellent! Susan had great suggestions and even looked up information for us. We spent some time just chatting with her. We will definitely return!
Susan's guesthouse proved to be the perfect spot for our too-short stay in Austin – even better than expected, in fact! The two-story addition to her home is lovely, clean, comfortable and totally inviting (loved unwinding on the little balcony). The location is great, esp if you have a car – an easy drive from downtown and close to SoCo, Barton Springs and tons of great restaurants. My husband and I stayed for five days in late October and couldn't recommend Susan's place more highly.
Great time at Susan's Treetop Guesthouse. It was perfect for our needs. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a central location to explore Austin from.
We have traveled to Austin several times and our time at the treetop has been by far the best stay. It was clean and quite. We really could not have asked for anything more. Susan is a fantastic host. When ever we travel to Austin again we will be staying at the treetop of its available.
The Treetop Guesthouse is lovely, very clean, with plenty of space and amenities, excellent location and quiet. Susan is very knowledgeable about Austin and had information on places to visit and restaurants prepared and on the table when we arrived. Great stay! Recommend highly
