    Super interesting! Thanks. I was wondering if you know anything about ? I am going for about a week to Austin TX and was thinking about doing this, I don’t need a full house and like the idea of a furnished Apartment. I am curious about what you know/think. Thanks!

      Hi Lucy,

      Thanks for the kind words. I can’t say I know about Residology specifically, but serviced apartments and corporate housing are other great options for a non-hotel stay. I’m sure if you contact the company directly they will be able to answer any queries you have and help you to make up your mind.

      Best wishes,
