This place is in a nice and quiet location while still being close enough to walk downtown. Ash made sure to brief us about everything and made sure to check that we have all we need, plus she gave some great restaurant tips too. The place has a cozy, bohemian feeling - perfect for getting in the Austin Vibe. Thanks for everything Ash!
Austin is a great town; and Ashley is the consummate Austin host! Her house is a great place to relax and is in a terrific location.
Ashley cheerfully greeted us upon our arrival, gave us a great rundown of the house's features, and enthusiastically offered recommendations for things to do and places to eat.
We loved our stay and would stay there again!
This was a fantastic home to stay in: definitely has the Austin funky vibe. It was perfect for 2 women, we each had our own room with very comfortable beds, kitchen and living room to relax. Walked to breakfast, lunch, shopping, grocery shopping. A quick drive to everything we needed in Austin. Close to a running path down by the river. Unfortunately did not get a chance to meet Ash, but she was responsive to text messaging during our whole visit. Great experience!
Great neighborhood and well located for anyone looking to experience all of Austin. House was very quiet and peaceful. Ashley was a wonderful host and made sure we didn't go without!
Our host was absolutely superb. She was very accommodating in helping us with our reservation modification plus gave us many tips on what to do while in Austin. Her home is even more spectacular than what is described. as I mentioned to her, it is an oasis. We could not have been more satisfied with it. We would not change a single thing about it. It was perfect. We thank her profusely.
This was a great space to catch up with a dear friend and just hang. In the sweet neighborhood of Clarksville, we enjoyed looking at all the cute houses and landscapes as we walked to get coffee each morning. Super cute restaurants within easy access -- a quick walk across the park. Ash is like a long-lost friend and her personality and passions are evidenced throughout the house, which has an eclectic bohemian vibe. House is roomy and comfie and quiet. Wraparound porch is shady and was perfect for what we needed!!!!!
Ash really does her best to make her guests as comfortable as possible and is a wonderful communicator.
Her place is in an excellent and quiet location while being close enough to downtown.
Her vibe is felt throughout her place and is as welcoming as it is eclectic.
Thanks for everything Ash!
