Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • A great place, good location. As advertised. Three nice bedrooms. There were 4 adults and 2 children and we were comfortable. We would stay there again.There is wifi but no TV is supplied.

  • Laura's place was perfect for a quick getaway. We had more than enough room for 3 adults and a baby. The place was clean with plenty of towels, blankets, utensils, bowls, and cups for use during our stay. The shower head was strong (love that) and the AC can cool the house quickly and nicely (a true perk in this Texas heat). There is no washer/dryer, microwave, or tv. We didn't mind since we only stayed a couple of nights. Laura is super responsive! The neighbors had parked in our driveway so we didn't have parking upon arrival. I called and texted and within 10 minutes, the neighbors moved their car. She's a great host! Would stay again - it's clean, comfortable, great location, and plenty of room for a family.

  • The house was great. Easily drivable or bikeable to most other areas. It was clean and comfortable. The five of us really enjoyed our stay.

    May 2014
  • Great price for a three bedroom duplex! Great green neighborhood.

  • The reservation was canceled 188 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • Laura's little home was perfect for our stay! We had a group of people and keeping them all together in the same place helped with carpooling and hanging out. The rooms and decoration were comfortable and chic and it was all set up for coffee & tea and kitchen type things. It was a great space and we would be happy to stay here again.

  • This was my second experience with an airbnb rental and I have to say that it was amazing. The house clean, convenient, close to shops and restaurants. My family and enjoyed the out and would rent it again.

    March 2014
  • Laura's place was perfect for our groups stay during SXSW. Thanks again for having us Laura!!

  • Myself and two co-workers rented this house for the first weekend of SXSW, and it was a fantastic experience. Easy check-in and check-out, and the landlord was very responsive to our every need. Getting downtown, and just about anywhere in central Austin, was a breeze from this neighborhood with easy access to Lamar, S. 1st, and Ben White. Overall a fantastic experience and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again on my next trip to Austin.
