I had a great stay at Jake's! Him and his wife are so kind and helpful. The apartment was great, too. Clean and spacious along with affordable!
Jacob's place was perfect! It was in the perfect area. My boyfriend and I stayed and we were able to walk to the store,enjoy a wonderful run on the lake, and it was a short ride to downtown. The apartment was very spacious and open, we were able to enjoy game night with some of our friends who live in Austin. Jacob and his wife were very nice and have the friendliest dogs. I would definitely recommend Jacob's place to everyone! Thank you so much for the lovely stay!
If you stumble into Austin and are lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay with Jacob, absolutely do so. After numerous failed attempts at contacting other hosts in the area, I was feeling extremely discouraged. After submitting a request to Jacob, I received a response within five minutes. FIVE MINUTES. I forgot to mention I was sitting in a coffee shop downtown with no place to go. Jacob not only came to the rescue, but also exceeded my expectations with both his hospitality and the place itself. It's spacious, comfortably sleeps four (large bed in the bedroom & pull-out coach in the living room), impeccably clean, and has far more than you need (Hmm, stable WiFi, safe parking off the street, a keypad so no worrying about misplacing a key, a private entrance, a full kitchen including an electric boiler and french press, shampoo & body wash in the bathroom, every brochure/magazine/local newspaper you would ever need to instantly fall in love with Austin, a ridiculously comfortable bed, two adorable pugs... to name a few). I stayed a total of three nights, and Jacob made a point to check-in throughout that time to see if there was anything I needed in regard to the space, tips, recommendations, etc. While he was always there to respond (immediately), he was not obtrusive or pushy. The location is fantastic as well. It never took more than fifteen minutes to get where we wanted to go. Plus, the bus station is super close right down the street. Next time I'm in Austin, I will not hesitate to stay here again... and again.
Jake was a great host. He took the initiative and reached out a couple days ahead of time to give us all the info and make us feel welcome. The place was clean, private, and located in a convenient part of austin. I would stay at Jakes place again.
The place is as described and the hosts were very easy to contact. The flat is close to bars in east Austin but a bit further from downtown. Thanks for the great stay.
Jacob's place is superb - cozy and with all of the amenities and close to lots of great as well as downtown. We came with our 13 month old daughter, and we loved the apartment - it clean, comfortable, child-friendly, and lots of room to roam for our young one.
Jacob replied promptly to all of our inquiries and when we met in person was a really kind, and down to earth guy.
My mom, fiance, and I stayed at Jacob and Maria's for 4 nights 5 days and had such a wonderful time! The apartment was cute, clean, and accommodated all of our needs! We rented a car and were about 10 minutes from great shops and sites and only a couple minutes from some of the best food and Austin. Maria and Jacob were very sweet. We very much enjoyed chatting with them and playing with their adorable pugs. I would highly recommend staying here and would stay here again!
Hi! I'm Jacob Morrow, my wife and I have been in Austin 3 years, and can't wait to share this rad city with you.
We have a lot of insider information to share with you, and who knows you might even run into us at our favorite vegan restaurant or checking out the awesome brass band at the White Horse on Sunday nights.
We work crazy hours, and are always on the go exploring Austin, so it isn't one of us that gets back to you, it might be Rose, she's our personal assistant and event planner. If anyone can make your stay in Austin rock, it'd be her!
