We stayed in the cottage at the back of the main house as part of our your of Texas for our honeymoon. The facilities were really good. Clean and smart. The decor was snazzy and the use of space was really well done.
Wonderful home! Host was very communicative and prompt. Seamless check in and check out process. The house was clean, big, comfortable, and in a great location. Will definitely return!
This house was awesome. Perfect location, clean, comfortable, great energy. I can't wait to rent it again!
I highly recommend Lisa's space - she has great taste - provides a well stocked place and is very accommodating - great experience in a great neighborhood
Lisa's home was as pretty as a picture. I travel from NYC to Austin quite often with my boyfriend (who is an Austin native) but this time my parents wanted to come visit us from Michigan as well. To make things easier I decided an Airbnb home would be the perfect situation for all 4 of us and THIS WAS INCREDIBLE. Her home is located close to the really lively shopping/eating/drinking area of South Congress. It was gorgeous and clean. My parents were so impressed with me for arranging such a classy and comfortable/ relaxed situation for us all.
Lisa herself was prompt and lovely to work with and she really went the extra mile with the additional touches: bottled water in the fridge, selections of coffee and tea, extra toiletries, night lights for the hallway (new places can be disorienting in the middle of the night!) Citronella candles for the backyard, etc.
There is just a lot of thought put into her abode and it was such a treat to stay in a place that had modern touches in all the right places without forsaking the unique vintage quirks of the home. We all woke up in the morning after great nights of sleep and just enjoyed the tranquility of having coffee out on the porch or while sitting at the dining room table gazing at the huge trees through the picture window,
I really recommend Lisa's SoCo home and wish we were able to stay beyond 2 days and nights. We will be back.
I'm a fun, adventuresome traveler that loves to meet fellow travelers, locals, and immerse myself in new cultures. Off to Italy in October with my best girlfriend in the world. Cannot wait!
