March 2011 (post SXSW)

2011 SXSW was by far the most fun for us that we have EVER had in Austin and it was mostly due to the awesomeness of Verde Camp. It meant a lot to have such a peaceful, cute, and cozy place to come home to every day. And not only¬†were the Public bikes the BEST way to get around town, but they got compliments everywhere we went! You made us look good! ūüėČ
Just wanted to say thank you so much for giving us visitors to Austin such a great place to stay. We’re Verde Camp’s #1 fans!¬†See you next year!¬†— W & E

“We had the most enjoyable stay in Austin, and your Verde Camp was one of the best things about it. We enjoyed being able to have our coffee on the back deck every morning and our wine out there at night, which we never could have done in a hotel room. We tried Guero’s, Botticelli’s, and we also went to South Congress Cafe, which was awesome, Chuy’s, Salt Lick, honestly we did not have a bad meal anywhere!

Austin is a beautiful place, and you guys can be proud of your city. I will recommend your place to anyone I know going to Austin!”

“Just wanted to say that we had a lovely time at Verde Camp this past weekend, and we can’t wait to stay there again! – Sarah C.

“Our stay was wonderful! We loved verde camp and the neighborhood — we hope to come back very soon. The dogs really enjoyed Austin and got tons of attention at Guero’s when we stopped there for lunch. We walked for 4.5 hrs on Saturday with them–the lake trails were great. Today before we left we hit the dog park–the dogs slept the whole way home. Thanks again!” -Julie, Bruce, Godiva and Guinness “

“…we very much enjoyed our stay and will stay there again. It’s a lovely place and we felt like we were “living” in Austin in the coolest neighborhood ever. We did not want to leave.” -Marci D.

“I am getting married on Saturday 9/25 of this year. I wanted to see about reserving the whole property for my Bridal party. I absolutely loved our stay there last November, and would like to give my bridesmaids and groomsmen that same experience.” -Nitaya T.

“I wish to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in the Cloud House. We really appreciated the thoughtful design and quality pieces you invested in the structure. It is a very pleasant environment, and we enjoyed exposure to furniture we were not familiar with. It was very comfortable. I enjoyed a very good sleep … Since my son attends graduate school at St. Edwards lives nearby, my wife and I look forward to booking again with you.” – John N.

“Thanks BJ – We’re here! And you are right: Now that we’ve found Verdecamp, we’ll stay here each time we come to Austin!” -F.S.

“Our stay at verde camp was amazing.” -A.C

“Hi do you have a house available for Sun/Mon? Yes? Sweet, I’m canceling my reservations at the Driskill to stay at Verde Camp


“It was so great to meet you and to stay at Verde Camp! We loved it! We had
an Austinite and some out of towners come by to take a look at the cute
house and everyone fell in love with the novel setup (somebody even fell
in love with that gregarious rooster out back- I have the pics to prove

BTW- Late into the night on Friday a satirical musical was born on your¬†new dance floor/laundry shed. Me and my old theatre pal (who lives in¬†Austin now) got giggly and made up some good song and dance numbers. Look¬†out for “Lost Angeles” in 6 months to a year- if he makes it happen, I
promise free tickets. ūüėČ That’s the kind of good vibes your place gives

A great place to sleep!

Holy Cow! “The” Ian McEwan and his wife are fans!



“Thanks Verde people. Being in my own house minutes from the convention was great on my 4-day business trip to Austin. Getting on the bus was easy and, you were right, renting a bike was an awesome way to see Austin! I’m definitely staying with you guys again.
– Phillip Graves, Midway Games.


“Given the choice between staying at a punk squat with no running water and no air-conditioning, or staying at Verde Camp, OFR always chooses Verde Camp
