it's nice to have a comfy place to stay while you're away.
we look forward to meeting you!
What a great place! And perfect for us with two young children (Frank 7 and George 4). Well equipped with everything we needed and more. Lots of space inside and outside for them to play, including a fab outdoor play area with swings and slide - made our lives so much easier as a family. Rachel was on hand with lots of info and v. helpful with everything. Being a bit further out of town was good for it being a nice and quiet neighbourhood and relaxed, and also good for running as the roads are quiet round here and it can get hilly going north up Springdale Rd. We had a car and so it was easy to get anywhere from here (about a 10-minute drive into the centre of town outside of rush-hour), but you'd need bikes to get around or there are buses nearby otherwise.
The studio was extremely close to where I was working. I didn't plan it that way but I got lucky. It was also really great that parking was covered as there isn't much street parking and the neighborhood kids tend to be playing out on the street. Great spot for families. The studio was very clean and quiet. Also, thanks for the cookies, Rachel!
Rachel is a fantastic host! We loved the artistic atmosphere and all the contemporary family-friendly amenities. Our only regret is not booking sooner so we could have stayed here for our entire trip to Austin. Wonderful people; We will most definitely book again.
Perfect location to visit Austin with a small family!
Rachel and family made us feel welcome in their home and respected our space as well. A very accommodating host. Our 18 month old son loved the child friendly atmosphere. Anyone looking for a safe, quiet, and relaxing place to call home for a short while, look no further!
We had a wonderful weekend stay at Rachel's studio. She was a very helpful host, and gave us leads on some great local places to eat. We enjoyed the homey atmosphere of her studio. She even left us cream puffs to enjoy when we arrived! We'd definitely stay here again!!
Our stay at Rachel's Studio was awesome! Communication was great and she was very accomodating. Among the many highlights are the piano, the basketball court and the great coffee!
Great hosts! Rachel is very warm and welcoming. There were yummy homemade cookies! The apartment is comfortable and VERY child friendly, great for small children. Also, even with the unusually chilly weather the concrete floors were warm. Would definitely return.
We had a blast at Rachel's place. It was SUPER clean, quiet, and cute! I would recommend anyone to go there, especially if you have kiddos. My boys loved playing on their play ground and the toys inside the studio. Loved it!
We had a great stay. The house is really close to the airport and downtown so it was very convenient. Rachel is a great, incredibly accommodating host -- fresh homemade Rice Krispie treats upon arrival!
It was a very nice experience hosting Rachel and her husband. We would recommend them and welcome them back any time!
Rachel's parents, Rebekah and Gabriel, are very nice people. Did not look great travelers but the same very curious and willing. I helped them to organize a tour to Rome and hope that they had a great time. I also hope that they enjoyed their stay in Italy and will come to visit this country again.
We've known Rachel and her family for about 10 years. They are one of the, if not the most, gracious families we've had the pleasure to know. Their home is beautiful, convenient to the airport, downtown, and a number of great spots that set Austin apart from other cities. Their house also has plenty of amenities - a full playground, large deck, basketball goal, and plenty of room for young kids to run around. Rachel and her family have lived in Austin for years, know the city inside and out, and will take great care of you during your stay. If you have the chance to visit Austin do not hesitate to book Rachel's house!
