I've lived in S. Austin since 1991 and, after working on my own home for the last 20 years, am currently earning my keep as a Handy Woman.
I've had a great time staying with Krista- she's an incredible host and the apartment is bright and cheery, and everything you need. The location is perfect, within walking distance (10 min) of south congress and all of it's shops and restaurants - I really couldn't recommend it more!
Krista was an excellent host. Good comfortable detached apartment in an excellent neighborhood, within a couple minutes to downtown or south congress. Highly recommend.
Krista's place was perfect! She was very communicative and responsive to our needs (letting us borrow her iron and ironing board -- thank you!), and providing great tips for enjoying the awesome city of Austin. The tree house loft was well-crafted and extremely comfortable for us. My fiancée and I had some of our best sleep on our road trip there. It was a joy waking up to a sun-filled space with the sounds of birds and local neighborhood kids playing. The neighborhood is ideal for being in a peaceful setting yet close enough to the fabulous area of south congress with great restaurants/bars and unique thrift/vintage stores, as well as a nice bike ride or easy bus ride downtown. We brought our bikes and had a blast enjoying Austin and SXSW without the traffic. Krista was very thoughtful in having the place stocked with coffee, tea, and a few other nice touches that made our stay really wonderful.
I give the highest recommendation! Thank you again!
The tree house of Krista is beautiful, on a great location on hills of Travis Heights. Tasteful decorated and very comfortable in all aspects. Such a little house for yourself feels very rich. A perfect hangout spot for Austin, near the SoCo district. For the centre the bus is close by, a bike would be even more perfect.
Krista was a great host; provided me with a welcome drink in the fridge, a first breakfast yoghurt and plenty of coffee for the whole trip of 5 days. And some start up information on Austin was ready on the table.
Too bad I did not met her in person in the end, but she was very responsive via the telephone.
This kind of accommodations is what makes Airbnb so great!
This is a cute place in a great location with a wonderful, accomodating host!!!! I was in town for a hectic wedding/ friends/ family visit, and it was a wonderful getaway from all the madness. Krista was communicative, accomodating (I had to make last minute changes to my reservation), and very helpful.
Krista was super gracious and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay at her lovely tree house, and will most definitely be back again.
Krista's Tree house is a wonderful, clean and quiet place to stay at. The location is great. Krista knows her city well and gave us lots of great tips for cool restaurants and fun things to do while we were there.
We were there with our 2 young boys and there was plenty of space for all of us. Fresh coffee in the morning, a great yard that our boys had fun exploring, the poole down the street...perfect! Thank you Krista!
Cute apartment in a great location right near the action on South Congress. Easy access to great restaurants, music, shopping and outdoor activities. Krista gave helpful recommendations and was a great host!
First time using airbnb as all the hotels were sold out for sxsw. What a great experience. Krista was a great host, helpful, and when the town lost power she was there in 10 minutes to help out. Would definitely recommend her and stay there again.
