Vannak and Veronica
From Jul 19, 2015 - Jan 01, 2017 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Fantastic location and place. Vannak is detailed-oriented and easy to communicate with. Highly recommend this place. You will be in the heart of the action. If you want to be able to walk to everything, this is the place for you. If peace and quiet is your goal, I'd look further out of the city.
The apartment was fabulous. It met all our expectations--clean and comfortable. And you really can't beat the downtown location with free parking.
This apartment couldn't of been more perfect! The location is so central- no matter where you're headed to (South Congress, Rainey Street, 6th Street) getting there is a breeze from here. The owners couldn't of been more helpful or conscientious the entire stay. Thank you Vanessa & Vaneek for sharing your home with us!
I had an excellent stay here. Vannak was very quick to respond to all communication and the stay was really flawless. There was even some bottled water and wine in the refrigerator, as well as basic kitchen supplies. Great host and great spot -- would definitely stay here again.
We returned to Austin for another ACL weekend and our stay at the Downtown 2/2 was great! The location is unbeatable and our hosts (V2!) were professional and helpful every step of the way. The unit has an excellent lay out and allows a group of 4 to be very comfortable. It is a quiet complex and we never had any issues. I work in hotels and travel and was impressed at the cleanliness and organization of this rental. Clear instructions and helpful advice were abundant. I also appreciated that the door had a SECOND dead-bolt that could only be locked/un-locked from inside the unit. You always wonder who else has the key (or code) but with a second dead bolt, any fear was immediately removed. I highly recommend this unit for any traveler to Austin!
We found ourselves looking for a place to stay with another couple for an extended weekend in Austin for a wedding. None of us could have asked for a better location nor a better host.
Vannak was consistently responsive, with detailed information in his messages. Our check in to the apartment went smoothly and we were greeted with snacks and refreshments left by our host; it's the little details that make you feel like you're at home!
Real estate is all about location, location, location, right? This apartment is the epitome of that statement. Centrally located between Sixth St., Rainey St., SoCo, and East Austin; we were never hungry, thirsty or bored. There are a myriad of restaurants, bars, and shops located right within walking distance. If you have a rental car (as we did) you're in luck as Vannak's place has private off street parking.
We loved our weekend at Vannak's flat and would love to stay the next time we're in town!
Wow, Vannak was truly an incredible host. This is how Airbnb is supposed to be done people! Easy check-in is completely automated, and when we got there, the air conditioning was on and awaiting! The place was incredibly clean, and large, great for 4 people. The location, is also perfect, centrally located in downtown within walking distance of 6th street and the convention center. Also, the neighborhood has a car2go parking station right down the street, so you can always hop in one and get anywhere in the city, including SoCo.
Perhaps the best part of the entire trip was Vannak, however. He was extremely responsive via the Airbnb messaging system and text message. He answered all my questions and gave us great recommendations for places to go and places to eat and places to drink! Also, he had soy creamer and coffee ready for us, upon our special request, as well as some other snacks and beverages. A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND A MUST IF YOU ARE IN AUSTIN.

About the Host, Vannak And Veronica (V2)
Thank you for your interest in our property!
My wife and I lived in this complex for 4+ years. We moved as we need a bigger place and my wife wanted a yard. While downtown, we enjoyed being able to walk to so many restaurants, nightlife, going to festivals like SXSW, ACL, Pecan Street, to name a few. We spent a lot of time on the lake doing dragonboating (think canoe with 20 paddlers) and running on the trails. Recently we've enjoyed the new areas of Rainey, new restaurants on the East Side, and being here for the many festivals and events they have downtown.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let us know. We lived in Austin for 9 years, went to California for 3, then moved back to Austin last year.
The picture is of us hiking Yosemite, CA. A very beautiful place and worth going if you haven't been!
