Great location and nice place. Bed was super comfy! Daniel is a great host. He is very informative and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.
Daniel was very flexible about when we arrived, and was very friendly and informative. This was a perfect place for our week long visit. The bedroom was beautiful with a great bed, the living room was a good size with a great deal of light, the kitchen had everything we needed. We were able to spend time there very comfortably and had the relatives in town over to spend time, and it was also an excellent location for getting around the city, everything was close by. The weather was terribly cold when we were there, but at warmer times the outdoor space would have been great. (We only wished we could have seen more of the dogs.) It is Texas, so a car was a big help, but we also definitely liked that it wasn't in the midst of the big buildings in the rather oppressive downtown.
Smaller points: very fancy lighting system we were envious of, combo microwave/convection oven great--check instructions, and big couch was good for putting our relatives on, very soft, maybe too much so. Daniel provided shampoo which I stole by mistake. Also, coffee, fruit, and cookies. Thank you, Daniel, for a great stay.
The guest house was even better than described and was the perfect set-up for us. The closet was so big (modest walk-in) that our just 7 year old claimed the room for herself and we had a second little bedroom all for her. There are large windows all across the back and side of the unit that look out onto the green backyard and let in tons of light- really beautiful and peaceful. Daniel was completely the gracious host, dropping off fresh-baked muffins, fruit and the paper during our stay. Of course, the dogs were ready to entertain or stay for a pat on demand and whenever there was an enthusiastic kid or adult nearby. Overall a great place to stay!
Let's begin with the fruit salad. Nothing has made us feel more at home than a bowl of fresh fruit waiting in the fridge. What a wonderful way to welcome guests to your home! Our host, Dan, not only stayed up and met us personally when we arrived from our late flight he also provided a map, local newspapers, suggestions and excellent conversation. His four fabulous dogs (in charge of Customer Service) were sweet and attentive. We loved waking up and having Jack, Jill, Pippa and the soulful smiles of Solo greet us in the backyard. The neighborhood is lovely, with easy access to shopping and dining nearby. This was our first trip to Austin and we look forward to coming back!
The Guesthouse was a great place to stay. The apartment was clean and just as described in the listing and the comments. Daniel was a hands on host and very available for any questions or needs. He readily provided tips, directions and recommendations for these first-timers in Austin. Communication was also easy. Daniel was flexible with our check in times and was helpful upon arrival with keys and had house instructions/wifi info printed out. We had Daniel's number to call or text him for anything, or he was usually around next door/in the back yard as this is an attached in-law apartment. There are laundry facilities, however they are not in this guesthouse and require some coordination with Daniel and the other tenants in the other apartment to use. All in all a great place to stay!
Daniel and the crew (his "therapy" dogs) were most gracious hosts for my stay at his Zilker Guesthouse. Communication was quick and complete prior to my arrival, and there was even a little fruit salad waiting in the fridge. The quarters were spotless and clean, and there was a well-stocked kitchen if you prefer eating in. Everything was in good repair. Be aware that, like most of Austin, it would be a bit of a hike to public transport. But no worries, there is plenty of parking available on the street.
Daniel met me even though I got in later than expected. The place was even better than I had anticipated. The neighborhood was peaceful and convenient.
