We adored our stay at Nell's place. It was even better than described on the site. Nell was so easy to communicate with. A helpful guide with all of her suggested places to dine, shop and visit was much appreciated as was the welcome basket of fruit, juice, muffins and milk. The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking essentials and the bathroom is beautifully renovated with plenty of towels and amenities. Highly recommend to other travellers.

This was such beautiful, spacious, clean, relaxing place to stay! The cottage was close to local amenities and well taken care of. I would not hesitate to stay here again next time I am in the area. My favorite part was watching the wildlife outside of the wall of windows in the sitting room. Places like this make me never want to stay at a hotel again!

Nell accepted my last minute stay request which supported my evacuation from Houston during Hurricane Harvey. The large king bedroom and additional twin bedroom were the perfect set up for my son and me. The fully stocked kitchen / full size refrigerator allowed me to store and prepare all the food I brought with me. The nearby grocery, food and shopping choices were very convenient, what a great location! Nell was a fabulous host, around when I needed her but her property also provides for plenty of privacy and space. The backyard bird and wildlife watching were a fun pastime. Will definitley stay here again. Great price too!

This is a perfect little space to relax after a day at the lake/a local swimming hole/winery/shopping at the Galleria!!! The kitchen and bathroom are very well stocked and the beds are extremely comfortable. The sun room is great for drinking coffee and relaxing in the morning while watching beautiful birds, squirrels and a cute little fox. The outside area is quiet and has a wonderful view of the sunset. Take advantage of this little gem tucked away in a great location for a great price!!!

I am 63 and have lived in Austin TX for 25 years. I was born and raised in Englewood, NJ and graduated from NYU. I am active locally in environmental and political issues. I am a reader, a hiker, a gardener and a cyclist.

A comfortable bed is important as is a clean and functional house. Prefer not 'to rough' it and like the comforts of home. Airbnb is a new form of travel lodging for me and I think it sounds great. Eager to experience it.
When traveling I'm always looking to enjoy the natural world mingled with some urban life.
