This is wonderful little loft located in a very quiet neighborhood. We love staying at the Cupid's Bluff whenever we stay in Austin. We are cyclists so when we stay here we head out to bike in Dripping Springs and Blanco. Both are very close. We highly recommend this place.
I really enjoyed this private loft on Bill and Melissa's property. I met Bill immediately on my arrival. He was very humorous and personable. Prior to my arrival, I received a perfectly detailed and humorous email with directions to the property. The loft is beautiful and private. I will definitely stay here again. Bill and Melissa were perfect hosts, allowing as much privacy or interaction as the guests desire.
We had a lovely stay at the Loft. The accommodations were beautiful, and we loved being in the woods even though we were close to great Austin locations. Bill is a fine host and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with him.
The Loft is located in a great part of Austin; near 290 and MoPac. Surrounded by trees, this one bedroom apartment makes a great escape from the city!
Bill and Melissa are very gracious hosts! Upon arrival, the heat in the Loft was already on (believe it or not, it does get cold in Texas) and there was fruit and other snacks in the fridge. Bill had even offered to bring up a small TV for us, but we declined. The view from the deck was all we needed.
The Loft is well kept and the landscaping around it are immaculate!
My wife and I highly recommend the Loft!
Kudos to the Hornungs!
We really enjoyed this peaceful, clean, nicely furnished and charmful nest on top of oaks & pines. We went there for a relaxing getaway and were delighted to discover this original place which feel quite far from downtown but actually is at only 10-15 min drive..
We appreciated as well meeting Bill & Melissa who were very friendly and available when needed
We definitely could have spent more time out there and would come back with great pleasure!
Bill & Melissa are wonderful hosts - Texas hospitality at its best.
The loft was a wonderful oasis - we had everything we needed. Despite the hot Texas weather, the loft was cool yet light filled. The layout of the loft is well thought out, the decoration pleasing, and so clean. While it was too hot to hike during the day, the views are beautiful. As others commented, the place is secluded but very convenient. We'll definitely be coming back.
The loft was extremely clean, cool, quiet, and very comfortable. Bill and Melissa were very friendly, and provided everything that I could have possibly needed. I was looking for a place to work and relax, and the loft was the perfect spot. From fruit to croissants and fresh coffee, Bill and Melissa have thought of everything to make your stay pleasant. I just wish I could have spent more time with them. Highly recommended.
Bill & Melissa are great hosts. They have done a nice job of landscaping. The apartment is away from the house, so it is private. Room is clean and very nice. Very happy with our stay.
1st time using airbnb and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Melissa & Bill were very nice and accommodating and the loft was perfect. We really enjoyed the trails through the property and the various wildlife. We encourage anyone to stay here to enjoy an experience outside of boring hotels. Thank you Melissa & Bill!
We had a wonderful stay at Bill & Melissa's loft. It was so clean and nicely decorated. The grounds were inviting but we chose to sit perched on the tree top deck and take in the relaxing view. Because the loft was detached from the main house, we had total privacy and came and went as we pleased. We will definitely stay there again. It was a pleasurable experience.
