About Susan Littleton

I grew up in Amarillo and moved to Austin in 1990 to begin practicing law. I enjoy spending time at Lady Bird Lake and experiencing Austin's wonderful collection of great local restaurants and cuisine.

Susan Littleton purchased this house in 2003

Why Susan Littleton chose Galindo

The Treetop Guesthouse is located in a beautiful, friendly and very popular South Central Austin neighborhood. The close-in location showcases the best of Austin: Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs, Zilker Park, South Congress and much more. Very near downtown, SOCO, SOLA, SOFI, and top rated local restaurants, such as Vespaio, Olivia, Uchi, Odd Duck, Barlata, Vox and Lenoir.

What makes this house unique

This property has mature, 50 foot live oak trees throughout the yard which provide a lovely landscape and surround the residence and the Treetop Guesthouse.

We loved the Tree House and the Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

The Tree House was an enexpected gem! Susan and Diane made us feel welcome from the moment we pulled in the driveway. The house is immaculate and well stocked. Our favorite was enjoying our morning coffee on the second story deck overlooking the trees. It's perfectly located in the city for great restaurants, live entertainment and shopping. We will definitely return.

Terrific tree-top stay! Austin was such a great destination.

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect location to get to restaurants and shopping. It was just my niece and I, and we each had our own space perfectly outfitted for whatever we needed. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, and only a few miles drive to the downtown area or SoCo, which was also dynamic. Sue was a very gracious host. Would highly recommend this stay while in Austin!
