Great place to stay in Austin. The listing describes it well. Like having another home. Very relaxing and quiet. My go-to spot in Austin. Hosts are super nice too!
Merri's house is gorgeous. Perhaps one of the most beautiful and well curated spaces that I have had the pleasure to stay in. A lot of our stay had conversations surrounding the pieces that we felt so fortunate to be around. Merri was also incredibly welcoming and came to greet us the night of our arrival. All of us loved her, her stories and the place she put together. One of the things that we all had a little trouble with was that the beds are not very comfortable. Other than that, Merri is in a hidden, undiscovered oasis of Austin.
Irene was a great guest! She is welcome to stay with us again any time!

Convenient location, clean and killer mid-century decor. We loved the record player and good vibes in this charming home. Something to note, the home has an attached unit downstairs, but it wasn't an issue for us. Great hosts and overall a great experience!
Great house. Very welcoming. Close enough to everything but private and some great views. I would stay there again most definitely.
Before arrival, we had trouble with our connecting flight from Washington to Austin which delayed our arrival with a day. That wasn't a problem though since access to the house was gained with a code key which made it flexible. Upon arrival, the house was everything we hoped for. Fresh, clean and with a beautiful location both near downtown and the Colorado River's running trails. If you appreciate details in decorating, you're gonna love the interior of the house which was very classy. Also, the porch was beautiful to sit on after a morning run with a glas of juice as well as in the evening, drinking a beer and just enjoy the quiet neighborhood before hitting downtown. Highly recommended!
This place was amazing. The mid century modern furnishings were funky and cool. The retro stereo was wired throughout the space. The location was convenient for visiting South Congress and downtown. I highly recommend and will consider again for future trips.
We had a great time in Austin, staying at Merri & Donald's home made it even more special and gave the unique at-home feel to our visit. We loved the proximity to all the sites that we enjoyed exploring.

Beautiful home and beautiful hosts. We needed a home to record our first album and the place provided a much needed dose of comfort and inspiration. We hope to be back soon. Keep Austin Weird! -Jenn and Kirk of Lady & West
I can honestly say, I have never been more comfortable and felt more at home while traveling than I did at this 60's styled home! The place was perfectly located, amazingly decorated & had a super relaxed atmosphere! I actually added 2 more nights to may stay because I didn't want to leave! Merri & Donald are super friendly & were totally on top of helping us out whenever we needed it, I only wish I could have gotten to know them better, they are super inspiring! Hope to stay again soon!
It was a beautifully decorated house. Felt like we were living a Mad Men episode.
Merri Gale and Donald are some of our favorite people in the world--excellent people and happy travelers. This lovely and fun couple are not only great friends, but also some of the best hosts I know. They have a beautiful house in Austin and love to share their travel experiences. If you are visiting Austin, you can't find a better home and company.
Merri G and Donald are fun loving, creative, respectful people who I am fortunate enough to have as neighbors and friends. They are gracious hosts and you will not be disappointed with their wonderful home!
