Busy entrepreneur, mom of 3 - love Austin!! I want you to enjoy all the culture Austin has to offer while experiencing it in the most comfortable way possible!
My family and I stayed in this home for a holiday get-together the week before Christmas. I would describe our experience as mixed. There were many great things about the house, including the location, the grounds, the size (so roomy!), the beds and the amazing bathroom in the master suite. But there were also some not-so-great aspects. For one, there was a mysterious odor in the house -- perhaps mustiness??? -- that we couldn't get rid of, even after the air conditioning automatically came on during a very warm day. It was unpleasant. Also, the kitchen and living room areas were not completely clean when we arrived. The couch in the living room was so dirty that we covered it with a sheet for the duration of our stay. Also, the coffee maker didn't work, and the host was not in town to deal with this situation. We bought a replacement and ended up keeping it. Additionally, the ice maker didn't work, and there was no corkscrew for opening wine bottles. Considering the price for this rental, we were disappointed with these issues.
We enjoyed three lovely nights at Molly's house - family of four, mom, dad, and twin seven year olds. The set up was perfect for us with a "girly" pink room for my daughter (and extra large toddler bed for her dolls but big enough that she could have slept there, too) and neutral room for my son. The master was lovely with a large en suite bathroom and large shower. All of the beds were comfy, and there were plentiful towels, sheets, and blankets. The kitchen was very well stocked with anything we might need. We were all very comfortable, and the location was perfect for us as access to Barton springs drive and s. Lamar are very easy. The house is one block from Zilker elementary school which has two plays scapes and a large open field. We spent many hours there! It is also not far from access to the Barton creek green belt (near the other elementary school) where we enjoyed a lovely hike down to the creek for lots of stone throwing and exploring.
We were able to do some great things with short driving distances -turkey trot on thanksgiving morning based at Long center, UT football game, Zilker nature center, etc. All good, and we would recommend Molly's house to anyone. The Long family
Great home. It was not real clean when we arrived but Molly took care of it right away. Very peaceful neighborhood and felt safe. There was the sound of a train horn throughout the night - Not bad but if you are a light sleeper it may be an issue. A/C and Heat work very well.
Overall it was a really nice home and a great experience. I would recommend it to others.
My friends and I booked Molly's house for Fun Fun Fun Fest and really enjoyed our stay. The house is very nice and in a great neighborhood and close to Zilker Park, South Lamar, and South Congress areas. Molly had great communication and was a great host. Would stay there again!
I had a few college friends meet me for a long weekend in Austin and Molly's house was a great home base. Molly was great to deal with too. Clear instructions for everything and the place was well stocked with everything we needed. The house slept the five of us very comfortably (and none of us were sharing beds) and has plenty of space inside and out to hang out. If you want to get your party on downtown was about a $10 cab ride and its easy to get up to the lake too. And the airport is just 20 mins away. It's gotta be hard to beat the space, location, price, and hospitality you'll find at Molly's place.
Response from Molly:
thanks Rob, please come back again soon - great to have you stay at the house, you are always welcome here!
The house was great, my group enjoyed our stay!
Molly is an excellent communicator. She describes the house well and has easy access to the house. We rented the house for a race event at COTA and the location was good for both the track and downtown fun. We would rent from Molly again!
This house in in a great location, easy driving distance to some of the coolest stuff in Austin. It has a nice layout and a large living/dining area. We really appreciated the television and Apple TV, which were nice perks. The showers had plenty of water pressure and hot water. The air conditioning worked very well, which is vital in Texas. The automatic door/keyless system was great as well and easy to use. I would stay here again.
Great place - every bit as nice or nicer than the pictures. Molly was really helpful and always responded promptly to our inquiries. This was airbnb at its best.
The over all quality of our stay at Molly's in Austin was superior. It was the perfect setting for our family vacation from the towels to the children's accessories. All the kitchen equipment and furniture were the everything we needed for a 3 year old and infant. The house is all on one floor with easy access in and out. The style was clean and modern in every respect. Everything worked! We enjoyed entertaining there during our weeks stay. The Zilker Elementary play ground was accessable outside school hours. Thanks Molly it was a perfect house for us.
Thanks Molly for choosing our home !!! It was very easy working with you, I am glad you enjoyed your weekend and apreciate your feedback regarding what you would improve. You are welcome back any time !!!
Apart from the Terrible weather there was no problems with the visit from Molly to the Taupo house. Summer has been abit of a Challenge this year,pity because on a good summers day Taupo is a great place to be .
Molly is a great host, in Austin and everywhere she goes. I've known Molly for over 10 years and would not hesitate at all to recommend her to anyone on airbnb.
The house is modern, well located and perfect for a trip to Austin. Love the pool and the rooftop deck!
Molly's place is an absolute gem! About a mile from everything you would want to see or do in Austin, TX - Zilker Park, Lady Bird Lake, downtown and walking distance from some of the best restaurants and shopping in Austin. Plus a pool, hottub great accommodations and a killer view of the city.
