                                    The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a month long stay. The home was clean and the linens and towels were fresh and in new condition. The location was ideal with walking distance to a lovely park where I took my grandson daily as well as downtown where my daughter was working. The owner was very attentive and helpful. I would certainly stay here again.

                                    We stayed 4 nights at this great SOCO house for the Formula 1 race in Nov 2013. While we were there specifically for the race, we were blown away by Austin. The food and the music are amazing - and Jim, our host, gave us lots of good tips. The house is perfectly located about 15 min walk to the SOCO 'strip' - and the Continental Club (great small live music venue)....and as a bonus, about a 3 block walk to Congress Ave and the bus stop that will take you straight downtown (for only $1!). It's also only about a $12 cab ride to center of downtown. The house was lovely, and had all the room we needed for 2 adult couples. Jim was super helpful and set us up with all the amenities we could have needed. Highly recommend this peaceful spot (really beautiful tree-filled neighbourhood) - and hope we can come back sometime soon. Thanks again, Jim. All best, Hillary and Glen from Sydney.
