I'm a native Austinite and love this city. I've done my fair share of traveling and have lived in Hawaii, Oregon and Germany. Looking forward to welcoming fellow travelers!
Maria was absolutely lovely! She's super considerate--she even left us some breakfast foods & coffee, as well as picked us up from the airport. Her place was really cute and comfortable, and made us feel very much at home. It's also right in the middle of my favorite part of town, and we were able to walk everywhere: SoCo, the convention center, downtown areas like 6th/7th Street, and Zilker Park. She was also really accommodating, when my friend left her purse back in the (locked) apartment right before our flight she even got her boyfriend to come unlock the place so that my friend was able to make her flight in time!
We had a really great stay, and when I return to Austin I won't be looking up anywhere else--this place (and Maria) are the best :D
Maria is an incredibly warm and hospitable host. She even picked me up at the airport and left some fresh fruit for me at the condo. The condo itself is very comfortable and conveniently located, and beautifully furnished. It's quiet and the bed is extremely comfortable. A great refuge from the craziness of downtown, while still easy to get there when that's what you want. What's not to love? A perfect experience all around!
Maria and her boyfriend Graham stayed with us for only one night. Even when we could share for just a couple of hours, they seemed like very nice people. It was a pleasure having them over and talking to them. They were clean, organized, and respectful. I wish all guests were like them.
