My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the rooms in the house and loved it! We were there for a week while we looked for an apartment. The house is so cute! A lot of small details that made a difference (cute dishes, dish soap, napkins, towels and wash cloths, etc). Perfect place to be your home away from home. It is right down the street from a bus line that goes straight into downtown. Overall- a wonderful homey place for vacay or for a longer stay ! Thanks again!!

Rene and Thomas's place is our "go to" spot when we visit for the weekend. It's retro, clean, and it's close enough to the city. Don't hesitate to stay here! You won't be disappointed!

Very comfortable bed for my wife and I. It wasn't far at all from Barton Springs and 6th street. South Congress is full of shopping and dining. I had trouble getting out the bed because it felt so good. No TVs are in the house so bring a laptop for movies. We were barely in the house anyway.

Great location and very hospitable with common area and full amenities. The host was only partial to communication and had scheduled full day sewing and photo shoots within the house which removed from the private feeling of the house.

Response from Rene & Thomas:
Thank you. The house is a shared space, as agreed upon through our house rules when guests book. I will review our listing to make sure it's understood.
