Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Had a great experience at Susan's house. Everything was walking distance including several food trucks, bars and restaurants in the South Congress area and downtown. The place itself was clean, comfortable and very cute. I would definitely recommend this place for those visiting Austin. The proximity and neighborhood was great!

  • Susan's house was in a great location! Easy to find and close to restaurants and food trucks! The house was equipped with everything we needed! Extra, clean towels and all! We would stay there again!!!

  • Susan is buttoned up. Everything was as described. True to Austin, houses are small but comfortable. She has everything one wants to have handy. The location is convenient. Also true to Austin, trains are a presence. (They weren't bad for us- we like the sound of trains and train horns...)

  • We had a great stay in Susan's home. Although we didn't meet Susan in person, she was prompt with communication and everything in the house was just as described. Nice location and neighborhood. Would be happy to stay here again!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at Susan's house in Austin. The neighbourhood is lovely and close to a number of shops and restaurants. Susan was great at responding immediately and offered assistance while we were there. The only draw back is the proximity to the rail line - but a great place to stay in Austin none-the-less!

  • A wonderful stay! Susan has stocked her home with everything you could need. The location is wonderful as well, with a coffee shop, park, and awesome public library in short walking distance. I recommend it highly. Thanks, Susan!

  • Here for a weekend with my wife and another couple and the house was a perfect place for us to stay and relax for the weekend. Really great location to get to south congress or 6th st or really anywhere downtown. Couldn't be more pleased with my first airbnb experience.

    February 2014
  • Susan was a great host, as she was highly organized and informative. Besides pamphlets in the house, Susan emailed us a list of great local restaurants. My husband and I walked everywhere! The house has a great location close to delicious eateries.

    January 2014

I own my own business and am from Austin, TX. I love to travel - I'm trying to get around to seeing as much as I can! I've traveled to all fifty states and thirteen countries. I've been renting out my home for about 2.5 years now and love meeting the many people from all over, as well as hearing their stories why they're visiting Austin.
