A wonderful place to stay close to downtown Austin, and near a really hopping neighborhood. Joanne's guest room is separate from the house, offering very nice privacy and a lovely patio. Very nicely decorated and has very good climate control system, everything is very new. This is the best airbnb site I've stayed at so far, and would love to return some day.
Great place to stay in a nice part of town near South Congress and 40 mins walk to downtown Austin. The room is in a cottage separate from the main house so lots of privacy. I really enjoyed my stay at Joanne's place
Joanne was a fantastic host, as always. This was my second stay at the cottage and it was wonderful. She was very accommodating and evening provided a tea pot, tea, iron and ironing board for me to use during my stay. The cottage is extremely comfortable and was a perfect environment for work and rest. I'll definitely be back!
A beautiful, private space in the best part of town, with helpful, laid-back and unintrusive hosts - an absolute gem.
We had a great stay at Joanne's cottage. Joanne and Larry were nice hosts with good tips about how to get around the area and what to do in Austin. The location was perfect since it is only a 15 minute walk to downtown but right there where all the food stands and nice boutiques and diners are (South Congress is a one minute walk). Everything we needed was in the room, including water, coffee, tea, chocolate and handy items such as shampoo etc. Overall I would most certainly recommend this nice cottage for any stay in Austin.
We had a great experience at Joanne's cottage. It was a very nice private room and bathroom, clean comfortable and inviting. And in a great location as well. Joanne and her husband were very hospitable and we would recommend them to any traveler.
Very nice little cottage in a fun neighborhood. We rented for F1 weekend and walked from the cottage to the shuttle bus from convention center to the track. About 25 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, food trailers within a block or two of the cottage. Joanne is very nice and welcoming. Cottage has wi-fi, whucj was very handy. We would rent again.
Joanne's place in Austin is perfect. Located in a very convenient spot near all of the action yet in a quiet neighborhood. The cottage itself works well for a couple who enjoy a nice comfy place to sleep and relax. I would definitely recommend It to anyone who wants to experience all that Austin has to offer.
Joanne and Larry were wonderful hosts. The room, located in a separate building behind the main house, was private, clean, and comfortable. The location is fantastic with many wonderful shops, bars, and restaurants within walking distance. The room also came with many nice touches--coffee, tea, toothpaste, nice shower gel--that elevated the experience. I highly recommend staying here!!!
Our first experience with Airbnb and we had a blast. Truly charming cottage in the perfect South Congress location. Joanne and her husband were great hosts - highly recommended!
I stayed two nights in Joanne's delightful cottage, just a stone's throw from South Congress yet in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood. All of the amenities and comforts are just as Joanne describes here: new and of the highest quality. A wonderful retreat, thankfully without a television to disturb the space. The backyard is lovely, nicer than what is shown in the pictures. I highly recommend it! I've known Joanne for many years. She has the cheerfulness and integrity you hope for in a host!
