Katie not only has a FANTASTIC house, she is a truly FANTASTIC person. I wish I had not been so busy this trip and would have had the chance to hang out with Katie more than I did. Her home is really spectacular. A quick bus ride to the heart of downtown. I had my own room and bathroom which were both extremely clean and very comfortable. Not only would I recommend that you stay with Katie when you are in Austin, I would suggest its one of THE BEST ways to experience the city.
Katie is a very easy going but helpful host! Great to chat to and get a few Austin tips from too. The room itself is very comfortable, the bathroom clean and spacious and the bus is less than 40m away so easy to get around too. There are some EXCELLENT food trucks just a short walk down the road too!
I had a great stay at Kate's house in Austin. The house is delightful and my room and bathroom were clean spacious and homely. Kate was so welcoming and accommodating - I only wish I'd had more time there! Will definitely stay there next time I'm in Austin!
I highly recommend Katie as a host. She is considerate, friendly, knowledgeable, and she has a great sense of humor. Her house is conveniently located near the fun of South Congress while also being a short-ish walk or quick bus ride away from the Downtown area.
Katie's home is beautiful, impeccably decorated, sparkling clean, and spacious. We felt incredibly comfortable in the bedroom, large bathroom, and cooking in the kitchen. The house is in a pretty residential area, 5 min bus ride to downtown Austin, or 20 min walk.
Katie was very welcoming and kindly responded to our advance questions via this site, about local restaurants, buses and transport from the airport.
Key exchange was easy. We would definitely return!
I really enjoyed my stay at Katie's place. The house is beautiful and well-located (a short walk to lots of great eating options on 1st St), the guest room is comfortable and spacious, and Katie is kind, helpful and a really interesting person to get to know.
I had a great stay here! As a host, Katie was friendly, hospitable, easygoing, and communicated clearly.
The listing is:
* In a great neighborhood. Walking distance to S. 1st and S. Congress, both of which have great places to eat and shop.
* Less than a block from the bus to downtown.
Katie was wonderful! The location could not be better--S. Congress, Barton Springs, 6th Street...everything was just minutes away and even walkable. Her house is bright, cheerful, and clean, and I wish I would have been there long enough to enjoy her patio. I unfortunately caused her some extra stress but she was very sweet and understanding. I highly recommend staying with Katie; it's the perfect place for a short or extended stay.
A loveely home--very tastefully decorated and clean. The neighborhood is adorable! Great experience.
We had a wonderful stay. Katie is a great host, sensitive to most our needs and requirements. The house is conveniently located near a bus stop and not too far from downtown. Katie also gave us a lift to local pool and offered to pick us up from the airport.
Katie was an excellent guest. She was very friendly and easy to hang out with during her stay. She told us all about Austin, Texas where she lives and we got her set up with all the best places to visit while she was in Tahoe.
Katie is a wonderful guest!
Katie was very busy enjoying the island. I was very busy with my jobs. So we did not meet but all went very well. I look forward to her return.
We really enjoyed hosting Katie! She is a delightful guest and we hope she'll come back and visit us again soon.
Katie was great - super friendly, quiet, clean, independant. I would definatley recommend her :)
Katie is a lovely hostess with a wonderful house in a cute, central neighborhood. Katie has lived in Austin for many years so know "old" Austin inside and out, but is also always looking for new restaurants, activities and flair to check out. As a hostess, she is a great mixture of helpful and do-your-own-thing. Her house has such a sweet front porch and a screened in breakfast room! I'd send any of my friends her way.
