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 Austin

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 Barley Swine, Vespaio, Olivia, Uchi, Odd Duck 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.

The Treetop Guesthouse is the perfect place to escape to for a weekend in Austin. Centrally located in South Austin neighborhood with oak-lined streets. Close to SOCO, South Lamar, and Downtown- yet you feel secluded at the house. The accommodations were extremely comfortable and many complimentary items were provided. When we arrived, Susan was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there again when we return to Austin!

Great time in Austin!

The Treetop Apartment was a great find for a weekend in Austin. Located in a great South Austin neighborhood with Live Oak lined streets. Close proximity to SOCO, South Lamar, and Downtown. The accommodations were beyond comfortable. There was even a cold beer in the fridge upon arrival. Now, that's some Austin hospitality!

A True Gem in Austin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 4 year old and it was near perfect. When we arrived, the owner was very informative and helpful. Many complimentary items were provided, the place was immaculately clean, and there were even mini dinosaurs figurines left on one of the landscaping rocks in the yard. The location is excellent - very near the city, yet you feel secluded at the house with the beautiful surrounding trees. Each day, we enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels that gathered right outside the house in front near all the trees. Truly a wonderful place that is all-encompassing and that we will be coming back to. Thank you, Susan!

The Treetop Guesthouse was a perfect choice for our group of two couples who were in Austin for a wedding and a few days of sightseeing. It has a great, quiet location, looks virtually brand-new and is clean clean clean. The decorating is tasteful, the beds comfortable and the little balcony a great place to spend time. The details are very thoughtful - fresh ground coffee, yogurt, all the soaps and shampoos you could possibly need, etc. And at a very reasonable price! We'd all stay there again in a flash.

Great for business or pleasure

  • 5 of 5

I completely enjoyed my stay at the treetop - an ideal location for getting downtown (the #5 bus is 2 blocks away) for business and a great place for a family. Our kids loved the house and yard... great playgrounds nearby too! The owners are wonderful people to work with. I highly recommend!
