From Austin, Texas. Like to travel without a great deal of planning. And outdoor activities of every sort. Also like a good read, art, movies, recording for blind. Stillness is OK, too.

The listing description of Carriage House Apartment was very accurate and we were very pleased by the fact that Ford and Lisa willingly accommodated to our additional request for using a washer.
Upon our late-night arrival we were welcomed by a snack with teas and wine left by Ford for us.
The equipment of the apartment is well thought-through and we had at out disposal everything we needed.
Can only recommend Carriage House for single-travellers or families who want to stay close to the downtown in a nice neighborhood.
Carriage house, where I stayed for a month, combined with Ford as the most thoughtful host, made it feel a home away from home.
Carriage house itself is clean and cosy. Comfy bed, loads of storage room, a large living room - essentially everything you need for a short (or long) rental. It is also in the most amazing location, in a very quiet residential neighborhood, near to nice restaurants and cafes, but only a 20 minute walk or 5 minute uber from downtown.
As for Ford himself, I was incredibly touched when I arrived by his gifts of wine, beer and coffee - he was in touch before to ask whether I was a tea or coffee drinker. And I found even knowing him and his wife we right opposite if I needed anything was a real comfort.
It was my first time visiting Austin and I was unsure what to expect but this certainty made the experience infinitely more positive.
Thank you Ford and Lisa
We had a really lovely stay at het carriage house! Such a cozy place. I would definitely come back here!
Thank you Ford & Lisa
The carriage house was exactly as promised -- a wonderful, cozy yet spacious place close to great food and delicious coffee -- an easily accessible
To downtown, yet tucked away in an awesome Neighbourhood. Ford and lisa were fantastic hosts. All was as promised but better, with good recommendations, and great communication. And a very comfortable bed! Thanks for a great stay in Austin. We would highly recommend it!
We lived in Austin 13 years ago and wanted to visit for my husband's birthday. I picked this place because it was close to so much, but in a quiet area. I usually like having a kitchen when we travel, and this place was well equipped, but honestly we barely used it since we were stuffing our faces with Tex-Mex and BBQ at our old favorite haunts.
I'm a princess when it comes to sleeping and the bed was very comfy. Another reason I picked this place was because the bed was on a platform--no box spring--thank god! I told you I was a sleeping princess!
Close to shops and eats: check

Awesome home away from home!
So, after being hosted perfectly by Ford & Lisa, I now feel so protective of of "my place in Austin" that I wondering how I can share it? But it is perfect. Ford & Lisa have created a little gem in Clarksville, and it is now my "go-to" place in Austin. Walk down to Fresh Plus or Cipollina, get some steaks and beverages, and spend a lovely few days in their thoughtfully appointed flat. I spent a lot of time listening to Townes, who lived right around the corner, soaking in that Clarksville thing. Some of you know what I'm talking about. I like to keep to myself, and Ford & Lisa were brilliant in being responsive, but never intrusive. They left me a bottle of wine, chips & salsa, and a lovely flat. Thanks guys! I miss it already and hope to come back.
My husband, 3month daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Austin, and if we visit again would definitely stay at Ford and Lisa's Carriage house! It is located in an adorable neighborhood, that is great for evening walks. There are restaurants, a grocery store, and a coffee shop in walking distance. The house itself is adorable, impeccably clean and homey. Ford and Lisa were great hosts!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! This place was incredible. I was in Austin this past weekend for a wedding and this carriage house was a perfect launch point for a weekend of activities.
I had a truly great experience staying here and would recommend it to anyone.
As always, Ford and Lisa were gracious hosts. This is my second time staying with in Austin with them and the carriage house is a quaint and clean space perfect for our visit to Austin for ACL. I would definitely recommend renting from Lisa and Ford.
Superb! Very responsive host and a charming place in a cute neighbourhood. Great amenities left for us ;everything we needed! Thanks Ford for a wonderful start to our Austin adventure!
They were fine guests. Would be happy to host them again.
Great guests, thanks!
Ford and his wife were pleasant guests! We are happy they enjoyed the condo views and resort as much as we always do!
Great tenants. An extremely nice and quite couple. Enthusiastic about visiting and getting to know Mendoza and of course, a far too short stay.
We'd love to have you back or visiting you some time at your bnb in Austin
Lisa and Ford were terrific guests . Very polite and respectful, smart and interesting, just all around good-spirited, good-natured people--. It's was real pleasure to host them.

Ford was our 1st official AirBnb guest! It was an exciting experience for us!!!
Ford was very nice and easy-going. We look forward to being a guest in Austin at his place soon!
Lisa and Darrell were very nice guests. Quiet, clean, and polite. I really enjoyed our conversations! I wish they could have stayed longer!
I would definitely recommend them to any host!
unfortunately, we didn't get to spend time with darrell and lisa because we were away during the weekend of their visit. but they were extremely gracious and left the house in perfect shape. it's our hope that they come back to nyc some day and stay with us while we're actually here!
Very easy to work with. Left the place spotless. Would be happy to have them again.
Ford is a great guy, easy to deal with and very nice and polite! Love to have him back anytime to stay at the studio! I'm sure he enjoyed walking to the beach!
