We arrived in Austin much earlier than anticipated but one phone call to the Hornungs and we were graciously accepted. Melissa even warned us about the weather. Sure enough, when we arrived at the Loft it was raining, hard. Melissa begged off due to the weather, but everything was ready for us when we arrived. Unfortunately our busy schedule didn't allow for us to meet personally. I'm sure it would have been a pleasure.
We had a wonderful stay at Melissa and Bill's Loft! The location tucked away near the greenbelt was quiet and lovely, just 5-10 minutes from town and a great jump off point for our hill country drives to the west. The loft is just as it looks in the pictures, and is wonderfully stocked and decorated with all sorts of extra touches. Bill and Melissa are lovely folks, and their pet turkeys and peacocks are too sweet! Bill has lots of information to share on the local history and hiking as well, and we had a terrific time hiking the Barton Creek trail just nearby. In short, it's a terrific place to stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
What a great place to stay in Austin! We especially enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the tree tops drinking our morning coffee. Coffee, water, cream, fruit and a coffeecake were all in the refrigerator for us. Fresh flowers too. Nice bed, lots of hot water, plush towels and pleasant decor. We met Bill briefly when we arrived and got a few helpful tips from him, but then were so busy we did not see him again. We knew they were right next door if we needed anything, but things were perfect as they were. Would love to stay here again.
The Loft on Cupid exceeded our expectations. The host was warm & welcoming. The loft very clean, comfortable, & lovely. Waking up in the tree tops & surrounded by nature was wonderful.The fresh fruit, coffee, whole grain with fruit breakfast bread were wonderful touches. Having beautiful fresh flowers was also nice. This is truly a home away from home. We look forward to a return visit.
My wife and I stayed at the loft and enjoyed it immensely. We loved the location and Bill and Melissa are wonderful people who truly love to host visitors and love where they live, a wonderful, peaceful retreat. Highly recommended!
Outstanding! Super clean, convenient, quiet...and terrific hosts. Highly recommended.
