Denise communicated with me before our arrival and made us feel welcomed. She even checked in to see if we made it in safely. We really enjoyed her home. The neighborhood is quiet. The house had everything that we needed and we really liked how clean and organized everything was. We felt comfortable and relaxed. My husband is so thankful that we stayed in Denise's rental instead of a hotel since I came to Austin for some work meetings and stayed a few days extra for a little family vacation. The location is phenomenal! Loved SoCo and the proximity to the cute restaurants and shops. Driving to downtown took about 10 mins or less. Felt like we got to really see Austin as a local than a tourist. Thanks for everything Denise!
We would highly recommend Denise's place. It was impeccably clean and we felt very much at home. Thank you!
Unusually well thought out in design! Complete kitchen. Very nice bath with large, modern shower. Much better experience than hotel rooms. Stayed with our 2 grown daughters and worked out really well. The location was even better then we realized because we could walk to all the shops, bars, restaurants on S. Congress. Immaculately cleaned. No backyard but we didn't go to Austin to do our own barbecue. Off street parking so no problem with a car which we did have. Very well run business! Highly recommend because it deserves the praise.
This is a little oasis in Austin and while not on the middle of the action (which we didn't want) it is totally accessible to everything.
The hosts crafted a space that is clean, beautiful and welcoming. I am choosy about where I stay and I highly highly recommend this space. Denise is a wonderful host and communicated every step of the way.
When you look out your windows you see lovely trees blowing in the wind and hear birds chirping.
This home was in a perfect location to walk around the south congress area. It was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Denise was responsive and helpful. I think it would have been nice if there had been a few welcoming bottles of water for us after out long travel day but other than that a great experience.
We do supply a Brita Water pitcher in the house that can be used for filtered water. There is also many small grocery stores and convenience stores less than 3 blocks that you can pick up bottled water very easily. We do try to stay as green a possible and not use individual water bottles.
Denise's house was wonderful - all the comforts of home in a perfect location. Walking distance to so many great South Congress locations. I would return here in a heartbeat. Denise was accommodating and responsive. Terrific experience all around. Thanks!
