Beautiful neighborhood quite close to the Barton Creek Greenbelt and with easy access to Zilker, Lake Austin and other great spots about town. The room is perfect with a private porch overlooking a cute backyard and awaking to the sounds of birds in the trees and kids playing soccer in the morning. But the best part of my stay was Lydia and Jorge who are among the kindest people I've met in my travels. I was traveling for my birthday and there were flowers to greet me in my room and a lovely farewell birthday three-course birthday lunch made by Jorge. Their son-in-law Rodrigo was also super generous, offering me a ride into town for ACL. If I'm ever back in Austin, I will stay with them again for sure.

Lydia was extremely welcoming as a host and was extremely friendly. She was a courteous and always spoke with a smile on her face. The place was good and exactly as mentioned in the description. A must stay place if you are a bird / dog lover and a tree hugger ;) She has an awesome extended backyard that is cool for taking long walks. The location is also one of the posh neighbourhoods in Austin and is safe and peaceful. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Austin and would be definitely staying at her place again.

Lydia and Jorge were at the door ready to greet me as soon as I arrived, didn't even have to knock. They were just sitting down to eat dinner when I arrived and asked if I wanted to join them, after a bit of coaxing I did. It was a delicious meal of onion soup and quesadillas. The room was nice, cozy and very comforting. The bed was really comfortable and I'm extremely picky about what I sleep on. I really enjoyed my stay overall and would not change a single thing about it. They have all the basics too. Good soap and shampoo in a very nice relaxing shower, outdoor furniture to sit on and watch all the birds that come through their yard, plus to pet their sweet labs. Their dogs are so, so sweet and ready to love anyone. Made it easy for me when I missed my dogs at home, there were two ready to be scratched and loved. They also have a cat with a LOT of personality. Lydia and Jorge were so amazing and nice. When they say, "mi casa es su casa," they do mean it, but do not take advantage of their generosity and hospitality because they are good people. They are truly, truly good people who I will stay in contact with going forward. Had a great time with them, great food, great conversations, wish I could have spent more time with them.
