Awesome experience and Adam is an excellent host. House was very clean with all the amenities you need. Location is just a short drive to most any popular destinations. Thumbs up!!
We had a great stay in Austin for SXSW. Adam was very responsive to our inquiries and was more than accommodating. He was even a bit flexible with our arrival time, which was fantastic. We had even left some items at the house which Adam shipped back to us, hassle free! Wonderful experience!
Adam was very helpful during the whole stay. If you have a car it's a perfect place to stay (no much taxis in Austin!). The house has an awesome style, good beds and bathroom and a guitar! Beautiful place to stay! Also, you can check in and out at any time, which was very useful for us. Indefinitely recommend it!
Staying at North by Southwest was a great experience, and Adam is an excellent host! He was very responsive and provided us with all the information we needed before the trip.
The house is perfect for 2-4 people to stay for a weekend trip. It is very clean, stocked with everything needed such as towels and kitchen supplies, and there is an open line of communication if you need anything else. Staying here definitely beat choosing a hotel because of the comfortable common area and yard. Commuting to downtown Austin or South Congress was a quick 5 minute drive.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, and will stay here again next time I visit Austin.
The night before Adam emailed me with all the information I would need for the stay. It was nice to have everything in one email than to search through all past communications. Adam is very open and communicative and even gave me his neighbor's contact info if I ran into some trouble.
The house is in an older Austin community so obviously houses are older and their appearance is totally up to the owner's care. Saying that, the neighborhood was quiet and neighbors are friendly. Adam totally redid the house and its comfortable, clean, and nice. My husband and I stayed in the back room and the bed is comfortable and the room gets amazing natural light. It was awesome to wake up to the room getting lighter but not in the uncomfortable way where the sun just pours into the room. We originally had planned for a couple of friends to join us and they had to cancel at the last minute but the house would have comfortably fit them as well. A 5th guest could have stayed over at the house as well because the couch is large and one could easily fall asleep on it too. The house is conveniently located as we got everywhere in the city pretty fast.
I am a snacker and we did have to go to the local HEB to pick up a few things like coffee grounds, sugar, and small snacks. Adam provides a good chunk of things but bring your all own personal toiletries. At past BnB stays, if I forgot shampoo or something the host usually had extra to spare for forgetful guests. I would stay at Adam's place again.
Adam was always easy to get a hold of and communication was timely before
and after my stay. His house was clean, comfortable, and a perfect fit for
me and my friends. Adam has a neighbor who watches over the house, so when
we realized there was no coffee pot, she quickly went and got one for us.
All in all it was a good stay. If you’re not comfortable with public
transportation (city buses etc.) I would highly recommend renting a car
otherwise you’ll have to take cabs. Adam, thanks for all your help and the
great tips, we had a wonderful time enjoying Austin!
