I had a great time in Austin, my hosts were awesome. Loved the apartment, a bit more than I needed, loved the location, and loved the neighborhood. The two pugs were cool, made me miss my two dogs a little less. Overall this place made the trip to Austin much better.
The flat was clean, easy to use and a great location. Setting up the visit went without any problems. Communication was good and easy. When we arrived the place was clean and comfortable. It was also quiet inside. There is ample parking if needed. We rented bikes from a great shop just down the street a bit ((website hidden)) which had the best prices and were super friendly. Getting around town on bikes was easy. Downtown is very close (1.5 miles), but there are also a number of restaurants and bars nearby even before downtown. I met and communicated with the hosts who were both friendly and helpful. Great place to stay in Austin. I definitely recommend it.
Great stay! The flat was very easy to find and to get access to. Jacob made sure we had everything we need and followed up before and during the stay to ensure we were well taken care of! We had everything we needed, sheets, towels, a hairdryer, a wine opener :D It's also about 2 blocks from an outstanding juice/smoothie bar, Juiceland, which was perfect in the mornings! Overall, it made our trip to Austin very enjoyable!
This was a great, clean, well kept flat with all the conveniences you could need! We really enjoyed our stay and were very happy with the location. It is close enough to downtown, east side coffee spots and taco trucks; while still being tucked away in an east austin neighborhood. There were even brochures to local venues, restaurants, shops and sites, laid across the coffee table upon arrival- which I thought was a nice touch :) I will absolutely use this spot as a home-away the next time I have family visiting!
Jacob and Maria's apartment was lovely and seemed to be nearly brand new. The appliances and kitchen were well stocked and the bedroom was very cozy. We enjoyed all the windows that lit the space and had no problems with the sofa bed. Mostly we enjoyed the quiet location that was still very near to downtown and lakeshore, and the ease of access and parking. Thank you!
My family and I absolutely loved our stay at Jakob and Maria's. Turned out to be our favorite Austin neighborhood, close enough to our fav spots to eat and drink and hear music - I am talking about you Figure Eight and Scoot Inn and Sam's BBQ. We were completely comfortable. Loved the peace and quiet and the apartment was big enough for my teenager to play his guitar deep into the night while I got my beauty sleep. Highly recommended.
