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!
Great home to come back to after a day exploring Austin. Very clean, new, modern and equipped with everything you could need. Easy access to buses on South Congress or a 15 minute walk into town, and only a 5 minute walk to rent a bicycle (best way to see Austin in my opinion!!) Also close to lots of great restaurants, food trucks and quirky stores on SoCo. Guero's taco bar fantastic!
Denise was very attentive and easily contactable if needed. Would highly recommend staying here while in Austin.
This house was PERFECT! A really great location right in the heart of SoCo. We had a car but mostly walked, biked, ubered, or pedi-cabbed to get where we wanted to go. The house felt very spacious and the open kitchen - living room was great for for our small group for leisurely mornings and hanging out. It was wonderful having a fully equipped kitchen (and we ordered Instacart grocery delivery for right when we got there so it was also fully STOCKED! I highly recommend this!). Denise was very communicative and a very gracious host! I highly recommend for your stay in Austin!
Denise was the best host ever!! Location Location Location! This place is right off south congress and right in the middle of all the good food trucks. Prefect stay for SXSW!
Great place, great location, and Denise checked in with me several times to make sure all was going well. Highly recommended!
