Our stay in Laura's accommodation was everything we needed and even more. Due to a last minute event, Laura upgraded me and my friend to her ground floor 1BR apartment and we were truly satisfied. The house was spectacular: much space, privacy and decorated with distinguished artful taste.
The neighborhood is mostly residential, with quality housing and very quiet. While you might feel you're in the middle of the hoods while resting at home, it's located quite near SoCo and downtown (around 20 min walk, if you're a fan of not using the car that much!). There's also a beautiful walk along the Colorado river which you shouldn't miss.
Last, but definitely not least: Laura was a perfect Host: personally welcomed us, had some few treats in the kitchen for us and was always available and understanding.
We definitely look forward to staying with Laura again when we return to Austin!
