Emily was a fantastic host! She made a number of recommendations for local fare. She also took the time to contact us the second day to make sure everything was OK. The apartment was great, we had a nice hot day to use the pool. The location is perfect to walk to many restaurants and shops, and only a short cab ride into downtown. We wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks again Emily!

The place was great-- very clean and in a quiet neighborhood. Also super convenient to all the shops and restaurants on South 1st and South Congress. We had a car but barely used it. When we did, parking was easy. Emily gave great directions, info on where to find things, etc. Overall, a great experience!

Emily's apartment was the perfect place to get away from the craziness of SXSW. It was quiet, spacious, and beautifully done. It's located right by all of the great shops and restaurants on South Congress, and downtown is a totally doable ~30 minute walk or short car ride away. Emily was very a responsive and helpful host. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Emily's place is everything as advertised and more. Wonderfully decorated and clean, walking distance to SoCo establishments, and lots of amenities in the apartment. Definitely recommend staying here.

Hi yall!

My name is Emily, and this is my first time hosting on air bnb! I first started using air bnb while travelling throughout Europe last summer with friends. I always have great expirences with hosts welcoming me into their homes, and I am excited to have the oppurutnity to extend that gratitude to you and your guests!

Although I am a native Texan, over the past few years I have lived in Miami, Seattle, DC, and Brooklyn so, I know how comforting it is to have a nice place to call home, even if for just a few days!

If you have any questions, please dont hesistate to ask and I hope to meet you soon :)
