I fill my time at home with cooking, painting and music and outside of that I can be found on the map somewhere between Texas and North Carolina.

I booked this place at the last possible moment. Baxter was so friendly and accommodating!
Her home is quaint, cozy and clean.
Close to the eclectic Plaza Midwood neighborhood with bars and restaurants within walking distance.
We had a wonderful weekend there!
I would definitely book this place again.
Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed staying at Baxter's place for the weekend! She is an incredibly friendly host who has done a great job turning the house into a fantastic little getaway. Music lovers will surely enjoy spinning some vinyl late at night or rocking the Wurly with friends. :)
I was in Austin and needed a place for the night, while for the other properties 12 hour notice was too short, Baxter accommodated us with only 6 hour notice, YES 6 HOURS!!!
In pictures I noticed the old record player, I had to look again, yes it was there, I was sold. Baxter met us at the place and told us not only about the property but also about things to do. The location is amazing, it is within a walking distance from everything, restaurants, bars, food trucks, you name it.
After an evening of walking around we listened to the the record player and did not turned on the tv or though about it the whole time we were there.
6 star experience!!!
The Magnolia Bee is a cute quaint house in Elizabeth. Walking distance to great bars like Soul Gastro lounge and the Common Market. Half a mile from a nice Harris Teeter. Nicely painted rooms and hard wood floors. 10 minute drive from the Blumenthal center down town. We were nice and toasty during cold snap in Charlotte this February. I would describe this place as homey, cozy and comfortable. Baxter even shared the food in the pantry with us! We're also artists so we were excited about the guitars and the electric organ.
Two things to mention: 1. Even though everything is clean and works, the appliances are not new.
2.Baxter was mostly good at checking on us, but at one point a fuse blew in the back wall of the kitchen, which meant no power back there... so no electric starter for the stove. We told Baxter about the stove/ blown fuse, but no response, not sure why. However, we're a resourceful bunch and used matches to light the gas stove and really had no problems.
Overall- a good stay!
Oh so good!!
Perfect cosy home for 4 of us.
Amazing location...a quick walk to the 24 hour magnolia cafe...bars, restaurants, live music all within walking distance.
SoCo is a great neighborhood that honors and respects local business.
We had a great escape and Baxter was super easy to communicate with and made the experience very easy.
Spent an awesome weekend at the Magnolia Bee Home. The house is accommodating, close to all venues, and downtown. Baxter made every part of the process easy and was available for any questions. I highly recommend both this house and Baxter as a host.
The cottage was great for our needs and Baxter was very friendly and helpful throughout the process. She sent helpful emails in advance to orient us to both the apartment and neighborhood. Baxter was also easily available by text and accommodated us storing our luggage until our evening flights. The cottage was clean and as seen in the pictures with a fun Austin vibe and a great location. The only drawback was low water pressure in the shower and warm (not hot) water. Everything else was great though and I highly recommend!
This was the perfect spot for our first trip to Austin. We came as a group of four intent on exploring a large part of the city over the course of 5 days, and the house location made it easy to do! We opted for local buses (the 10 is a great option to get downtown quickly), walks up and down 1st street and Congress, and the occasional Lyft to get around. Baxter met us with tons of tips and even a kind bottle of welcome champagne. Well worth a stay! Thanks, Baxter.
Baxter was a great host. It felt like she really went out of her way to get us in a little early, and that was really appreciated. The Magnolia Bee Home is in a nice location, walkable to many coffee shops, restaurants and bars. I would definitely recommend this place to others!
The house is a cozy little cottage that was clean and comfortable. It was the perfect size for me, my girlfriend, and my two small dogs. Although it's not fancy, it had everything we needed and everything about the place is charming. Including a turntable with Dolly Parton on it when we came in, books of poetry scattered around the house, and personal touches like old postcards tacked to the walls to make it feel like home. I actually felt like I was staying at a friends house and not in some impersonal rental.
It's also in one of the most fun neighborhoods in Austin. You can walk two blocks and you're at Fair Bean coffee. In three blocks your at Bouldin Creek Cafe, one of Austin's best places to get breakfast. Plus all vegetarian. everything you need food wise is right here.
Finally Baxter is an excellent host. She let me adjust times and dates as needed and was prompt to reply to any concern or question. She just made everything easy.
Enjoyed meeting Baxter & her Fiancee! They were great gusts & we would be happy to host them in the future!
Baxter and her finacee, her poodle mushroom, and their lovely bunny were awesome! Very personable, lovely people, and just a joy to host. I would gladly host them again in a heartbeat, and I hope they consider us their home away from home, next time they are in Austin. :)
Baxter and her partner were great guests, checking in early and then taking off and see a bit of Savannah. They were on their way to Texas and stopped at Los Robles for the night. I did not see them much but am assured they had a good stay. Richard
It was a pleasure meeting and hosting Baxter, a fellow airbnb community member! And just as I suspected, everything was in excellent condition upon her departure. This was an ideal experience. Hope to see Baxter again!
very enthusuiastic sunny girl a real traveller in the best sense
