This was a lovely room in a great quiet location that was also really close to the university. It was really easy to get to the city centre or UT Austin campus by bus or by a short walk. The room was beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable in August and the amenities were useful, especially the fridge. There was plenty of local information provided in the room too. Michelle was very welcoming and helpful and offered to tidy the room each day and do my washing for me, although the room was self-contained so I had plenty of space too! I would recommend this.

I highly recommend staying with Michelle and Paul. They are the best hosts imaginable. Their room is cozy, it has privacy and an excellent location. Especially (but not exclusively) if you have to go to UT.

Michelle’s place was perfect. We enjoyed everything about her space. The location was great. She had amenities such as a mini fridge, keurig machine, microwave, etc. that were very convenient. The room has its own entrance and was very private. Michelle was so nice and always available to offer suggestions on things to do. We stayed for almost a week and she would offer to come tidy up the room while we were out. Can’t say enough about Michelle’s place and would absolutely stay there again. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle and Paul were excellent hosts. This was one of our best airbnb experiences--and we've had many great ones. We were greeted by a beautiful handmade welcome note and our hosts were friendly and fun to talk with. Michelle checked in with us daily to see if we need anything and even brought over fresh hard boiled eggs! Our room was very comfortable and we've never been able to recycle so easily, which was great. It's a lovely property and neighborhood. We would love to return.

Michelle's place is truly a hidden gem, the space is warm, cozy, clean and beautifully decorated. Amenities were very high quality including KCup machine, fridge, and microwave in suite along with high quality toiletries. We honestly could not save enough positive things about Michelle and George (the cat) and already look forward to our next stay.

My husband, Paul, and I live in Austin and have raised our two wonderful children here. I've retired from a career in IT at UT Austin and love to help people enjoy Austin as much as I do. When I'm not busy with guests, I'm typically registering people to vote, bicycling, volunteering for my church or another non-profit, or getting together with friends. We have chickens in our backyard and love it when the neighborhood kids come help themselves to the fresh eggs. Come enjoy Austin - it's a great place with great people!
