Interaction with Guests
I love to interact with my guests especially if there is a different language to practice. I am happy to answer questions about places to see or restaurants and if available ..can give rides.

The bus stops almost directly in front of the complex.
Smoking is allowed on the balcony only please! Please respect the neighbors, quiet time 10pm.
Diana was the perfect host. She asked for requests for groceries for breakfast. She met us when we arrived. She was accommodating without being intrusive. Comfortable and a great location. My son and I went hiking every morning on the beautiful Barton Creek. This was our first experience with airbnb and we'll be back.
Staying at Diana's place is truly a dream come true. She is by far one of the most gracious, accommodating hosts I've ever had the pleasure of staying with- even stocked the fridge with one of my favorite beverages! She truly pulls out all of the stops. The apartment is in one of the most prime locations in Austin and is EXCEPTIONALLY clean... Her back patio facing the woods is absolutely gorgeous. Also, Diana as a person made me feel very at home. I would absolutely recommend this place to any person willing to stay there, it's literally a five minute drive to Cesar Chavez downtown and it's right next to the freeway, so if you need to head north, you're there in 10-12 minutes. If I had to dub this place with a catchphrase, it would without a doubt be, "Home away from home."
Just as advertised, Diana's place is comfortable and bright. It's convenient to Zilker Park and from there to the rest of Austin. Travel time to the park is 5 minutes by car, less than 15 by bike, or a very pretty 45 minute amble down the woodsy Barton Creek trail.
The apartment itself exudes a lively and loving spirit, with lots of small religious items and decorative lights in its wide-open spaces.
We rented Diana's place over the holidays so my folks could stay near us. She is a lovely host- very communicative and accommodating, easy to get a hold of, prompt to respond. Her place was perfect for us. The location is great- as described for walking to zilker or the pool; steps from the greenbelt for hiking, rock climbing or terrific mountain biking; easy bike, car or uber to downtown. Place was really well cared for- very clean, super comfortable bed, and quiet for a ground floor condo. We will definitely be requesting Diana's place again for future guests!
We had a great time staying at Diana's place. She met us when we arrived and gave us a quick rundown of the place and what was nearby. Our stay was seamless... the place had everything we needed and a VERY comfortable bed. The location is great for someone who loves Barton creek trails, the pool, and access to downtown.
Diana was very accommodating with check-in and out times, and easy to reach via text. We definitely recommend staying at Diana's!
Awesome place to stay. Convenient, quite location. The apartment is clean and very well kept and had everything we needed. Diana was amazingly welcoming - she offered to stock the apartment with food for making breakfast and even to pick us up from the airport.
Diana's apartment is perfect for a weekend getaway in Austin. It has a beautiful overlook balcony of gorgeous Texas trees. The bed is very comfortable (can fit 3 people if needed) and the mattress that she has for the extra guests is also great! Diana herself was a very welcoming host. Bought us cookies and fruit for our stay. The whole experience at Diana's apartment went smoothly and we felt right at home!
I sure enjoyed meeting all of you and I hope you will come again. I would've loved to party with you guys or at least dropped you off at ACL (which I did for my niece all weekend). Thank you for leaving my apt spotless and for the sweet parting gifts...you know I'm a chocoholic! :)
About the Host, Diana
I love playing outdoors and here in Austin--- going to Barton Springs, the natural spring-fed pool nearby is an uplifting experience and a must in hot weather. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world while we are playing in the water. Hiking to waterfalls and caverns makes you feel like you are far away from the city but you are right in the city. Amazing. I also love traveling and last summer I enjoyed the guest side of AirBnB in Barcelona. I have been treated so kindly in my travels, that I want to return the favor by doing what I can so my guests really enjoy Austin and feel welcomed.
