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 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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many homes through vrbo and the hosts really go above and beyond here! Stocked fridge and pantry as well as toiletries really goes a long way when travelling and having coffee in the house really was a great touch! The location is perfect as you can walk to some places to eat and you are only a short car ride away from popular locations like Barton Springs and downtown. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. Spacious interior and nice shower and bath!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a find. My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Treetop Guesthouse. I'm almost reluctant to give such a positive review because I want it to be able for our next visit to Austin!! Just kidding. The guesthouse itself was absolutely immaculate and welcoming. Susan was extremely accommodating and helpful. Several complimentary items provided, even a couple of local beers in the fridge for us to try. The guesthouse is also located in an extremely convenient area. Walking distance to several great restaurants and short cab rides or Uber to other nearby places of interest. Great stay and we will certainly return.

A+ Property and Owner! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!
