                                                          The "French Place" Studio was stylish and very comfy,

                                                          our Host Jim was so personable and accommodating. He has outfitted the Studio with all the necessities. The bed was very comfortable - we slept like logs. The neighborhood is charming and

                                                          very well situated close to some very hip as well as down-home food options.

                                                          Comfortable and private studio with a great host and walking distance to the Cherrywood Cafe, a great little coffee shop with a patio for your dog.

                                                          Loved my stay!

                                                          Pao A.

                                                          I enjoyed my stay in this cozy studio! It was perfect for what I needed and had the essentials and I felt at home. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a safe, quiet neighborhood. Everything was nearby and easy to get to from this point.

                                                          Excellent Stay!


                                                          Very gracious hosts! Welcoming and available for any questions. I stayed for a month for school, and the place was the perfect size and location. Very convenient to have my own kitchen and washer/dryer to use. Friendly neighbors and within walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. Overall a great stay!

                                                          Home away from home

                                                          Forest Y.

                                                          My fiancé, my dog and I were llucky enough to stay with Jim and Heather during a lapse in residence between my lease running out and closing on my new home in Austin.

                                                          Jim and heather are really friendly and helpful...absolutely great hosts. I really enjoyed getting to know them in the month I stayed there.

                                                          The property itself was very nice and well appointed. We only brought clothes and toiletries. Everything else we needed was already furnished, which was extremely helpful considering all of my belongings were in storage.

                                                          If you want a great place to stay in a nice part of Austin, I highly recommend this property. Be it a weekend stay, or a long term need, Jim and heathers back house is a great option.

                                                          Great hosts!!

                                                          Michelle B.

                                                          Jim and Heather we're incredibly gracious during our stay. They provided a wealth of local knowledge from restaurants to home renovation vendors. We truly enjoyed staying with them and wholeheartedly recommend them!!


                                                          East Austin, Austin, TX, USA

                                                          French Place is a region of Austin in Cherrywood Neighborhood Association, just northeast of University of Texas, due east from Hyde Park Neighborhood and south of the new Mueller Neighborhood development. This is a very quiet and safe neighborhood with amazing restaurants, theaters, coffee shops, and parks along our perimeter.
