Great experience staying at Regina and Andy's home. Warm environment and a really fun part of Austin to stay. They had the house really put together for us and left us breakfast for our first morning in the house. I would totally recommend their home for an Austin visit, you can't ask for a better location and hosts.
We absolutely loved the home! Regina could not have more gracious and helpful of a host to us. It was wonderful to have her there to greet us and walk us through the home and other fun things to do in the area and Austin in general. We would definitely recommend this home to friends as well as stay here again.
We had a great stay at the Dwell Cover house. It is a wonderful creative space with interesting architectural features and fun art and furniture by Andy. And Regina's organization is amazing - it makes you appreciate the beauty of everyday objects. We also liked exploring East Austin for the first time. I would definitely stay here again.
Andy & Regina are perfect air bnb hosts and their home is beautiful and in the coolest neighborhood in all of Austin! I highly recommend them and their home if you're into having the best air bnb experience of your life.
Amazing house with a great outdoor patio area that you never want to leave. Regina and Andy are gracious hosts, communicate well and prepare the house in every way you could think of. I would definitely stay here again.
Regina and Andy were great hosts. They left us croissants and beers. A great homebase for SXSW. The house is very cool, clean and comfy.
