I teach, have a 10lb, 9-year-old chihuahua, and love to be outdoors. I live to write, travel, explore, dance, see wonder in small things and adventure in everything.
Maria's is a really nice person. She is quiet, friendly and funny. She has been really reactive and always available. Her place is really clean and lovely. The neighborhood is peaceful and good looking. Her chihuahua is cute and has a cool personality. Take bus #20 to go downtown and make some friends onboard. Perfect place to stay at for SXSW attendees looking for quiet place after conferences, concerts or parties. Plus, there are some nice food trucks a few blocks away !
My husband and I are moving to Austin and we wanted to get a taste of the urban village concept (a thoughtfully designed neighborhood valuing conservation and community as well as parks and shopping within walking distance. See (website hidden) for more info). The condo is almost new in an excellent location. Also only a short drive to downtown Austin. Our host was very accommodating and well-prepared for our stay. We had a very nice experience. Would stay there again.
I highly recommend Maria to other Airbnb hosts as a wonderful guest!! Considering that we never really met, I felt as if we did. She was here at a time when I had to be away and so we communicated a lot by e-mail. I could tell she was a very lovely person, warm and compassionate, and I had no qualms about having her stay in my apartment. She is an animal lover, as I am, and so I knew she would be great with my kitty. She took great care of my apartment and even left me a few gifts, which were so appreciated! I would welcome her back any time. I just hope next time I get to meet her!
