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.
Great location, clean, roomy, perfect for two. Beautiful property and welcoming hosts. Couldn't be more pleased!
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay on Cupid's Bluff. It was very private, quiet, and comfy. Bill and Melissa were perfect hosts, providing everything needed for my stay. The property itself is awesome. I wish I could have had more time to explore and learn more about the history of the area (next time). I was just a short drive from Lamar, one of my favorite areas of Austin. The home is close to everything. I loved all the books in the unit.
Bottom line - I look forward to staying at Cupid's Bluff again.
I can't say enough about the Loft on Cupid's Bluff. It is truly an oasis near the city - clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and on stunning grounds. The property is a short drive from downtown (10-15 mins) and even closer to many cute coffeeshops/restaurants. You can hike from nearby. If you head over to bill and Melissa's you can meet their beautiful dog and other animals. As others have mentioned, Bill and Melissa are kind and generous, going the extra mile to stock the fridge with goodies, pick up the latest copy of the Austin chronicle or make time to chat. They are also conscious of privacy and will give you space if that's what you'd prefer. Of note, the wifi is spotty and the bed is a full rather than a queen. These things were absolutely not an issue for us - we would stay at Melissa and Bill's again in a heartbeat! I would very much recommend this property for anyone staying in Austin.
We have both traveled widely throughout this world, and have generally found the places we have visited to be wonderous and beautiful. We hope that all others who travel will benefit from the wonder and beauty they will also encounter in their travels.
