  • Wonderful hosts and the Airstream was great! I can't wait to do it again!

  • Marcella's and Meredith's airstream is just what we wanted-and needed as a respite from the craziness of Austin! A divine place, a true haven they have made, you will not want to leave!!

  • Excellent little spot in Austin and perfect for my cross-country travels. I was busy at a teaching conference during my visit to Austin, so I came in late and left early every day during my stay. Even so, I felt very welcome and comfortable in the airstream and really enjoyed the place!

  • Our stay was very short however I wish it had been longer. Their garden is amazing and tranquil, I felt as if I were at a beautiful retreat somewhere exotic. The little grey kitty was my most favorite furry friend in the garden but had time permitted, I am sure I would have loved the whole family of animals there on site. The toffee was absolutely amazing, I ordered some off Marcella's Etsy page to take back to my family. The airstream greeted us on our late arrival with its Christmas light path and once inside, the cuteness and charm was emitting from every corner. The attention to the small details, allowing for all of our small needs was great. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to my fellow travelers. This was my first time using Airbnb and as long as there is an option where I am going, I will choose to travel through Airbnb again and again.

  • This place is such a haven! It was the best sanctuary you could ask for, and the perfect place to come home to after a log day in Austin. Marcie and Merideth were so accommodating. This a beautiful place with an even more beautiful story behind it.

  • This was an absolutely great place to stay. Marcella and Meredith are wonderful hosts and great people. The property in which the airstream sits is beautiful (almost like a hidden oasis or secret garden). Some of the highlights (other than just staying in a super cool airstream) were the very friendly animals including chickens, 2 wonderful dogs, some very happy cats, and of course Fern the pig, that can do quite a few tricks for treats!!! As I am back to work today, I wish I was still there having my morning cup of coffee. Finally the location is great, they are close to everything you would want to do in Austin. I would definitely stay here again! PS. The toffee rocks:)

  • The only thing better than staying in the Vintage Airstream was having Marcella as our host! The Airstream was cozy, comfortable, air-conditioned, full of amenities, and close to downtown (15 minutes by bus). But what was really impressive is when Marcella texted us to let us know there was a tornado warning while we were downtown, making sure we were safe.

    We loved our stay in Marcella's Airstream and plan on visiting again soon.

  • I was just passing through Austin for one day/night, and I was able to book the Vintage Airstream almost immediately - it was nice to know I would have a place to stay. Upon arrival I was able to meet Marcella and her daughter. She was very welcoming, and pleasant and showed me to the airsteam. They really have their own private oasis on 51st St, Great location, and the neighborhood is very serene with everything you need within a nice distance. They left delicious homemade toffee in a jar for guest, which I will definitely be purchasing. I was able to meet their delightful chickens, and Etta the hound dog, and Fern the pig. It was indeed calming, and relaxing. The airstream was exactly as listed.

  • My experience with Marcella and this property was out of a dream! My boyfriend and I were looking for an intimate, relaxing getaway and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Marcella was extremely kind and her toffee was to absolutely die for! The animals that lived in the yard with us provided a surreal experience unlike any other. Very close to the city of Austin, as well as the bus station, making it easy to get into the city without worrying about leaving a car downtown & getting drinks. My boyfriend and I would stay here again in a heartbeat, it's exactly what we needed!

  • The airstream was awesome! A gorgeous place to stay, with plenty of space and delicious toffee. We had plenty of privacy down the end of the lovely garden, it was a delight to stay there.

Hi! My name is Marcella. Here's a little about me: 1) I have an amazing partner, Meredith, and an ever fluctuating number of kids living with us. 2) The reason why the number of kids changes is because we are foster parents. 3) Being a foster mom is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. 4) I began hosting on airbnb as a way to supplement our income and allow me to stay home with our kiddos. 5) I'm so glad I did, because I LOVE being an airbnb host! 6) When I have some free time, I love to garden or putter around outside doing projects. 7) I love animals but never expected to have quite so many. 8) I also never expected to be washing so much laundry as an adult. :) 9) I make really good English Toffee. 10) I always share some of my toffee with guests. :)
