Interaction with Guests

Rosedale neighborhood is very walkable to shops, bars and restaurants on Lamar and Burnet and also has a neighborhood park with tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball field and a swimming pool. It's very close to UT campus and downtown with easy access to MoPac, but it is a quiet neighborhood with a lot of families.
There is a bus route that goes straight downtown that runs every day for $1 per trip. The closest stop is a couple blocks away.
Other Things to Note
We are licensed for short term rentals in the city of Austin (which is required for all renters).
No smoking. No pets without talking with us about them first. And don't break stuff… I think that's probably a given.
Kitchenette has everything you need: microwave, mini-fridge, dishes, and coffee maker.
I stayed at Chris' apartment with my mom for a weekend and we really enjoyed ourselves. The listing is very accurate to how the apartment is in person. Very clean, adorable, and well-stocked with extra kitchen-ware, toiletries, sheets, etc. I slept on the couch and it was actually super comfortable. The location worked really well for us because we traveled to Austin in a car and could easily drive the 5-10 minutes it takes to get downtown. Chris was very helpful with any questions we had and very welcoming. I definitely recommend staying here!
Chris was a wonderful host. He was very flexible about our arrival time and very helpful with providing dinner options for our first night. The accommodations were perfect and clean. Private entrance and your own bathroom. I would definitely stay there again! We drove to most of the places we wanted to see in Austin so I can't comment on the bus that stops nearby the house.
the listing description was accurate. The host promptly answered our questions and was very helpful but allowed us to have a private stay. We would stay again.
Beautiful space perfect for your Austin trip. Well located to coffee and restaurants and a short drive/uber ride to downtown. Highly recommend this space and checking out the host's local recommendations.
My friend and I had a lovely stay at Chris's place. The apartment was perfect--clean, comfortable, and in a convenient location. Chris is a great host and recommended some delicious restaurants. We had a great time in Austin and can't wait to go back!
My mom has stayed here twice now and loved it both times. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and brightened with lots of natural light. The hosts have also been consistently friendly and very attentive in making the apartment comfortable for their guests. My mom has told me repeatedly she would recommend this Airbnb apartment to her friends. Thank you, Chris!
