Heidi was so friendly and welcoming! We absolutely loved staying at her condo. It was well stocked with essentials and extremely clean! The bed was comfy and bedding soft. You cannot beat the location either! She was always accessible by phone and very accommodating. I highly recommend her place!
The condo was just as advertised, beautifully renovated, very clean and comfortable. The location was excellent, close to plenty of restaurants and just a few blocks from the river. Having parking on site was a huge bonus. I didn't meet Heidi but she was very responsive via email. Just a warning to anyone sensitive to noise - there's a lot of it, both from neighbors and from the usual downtown noisemakers.
Hi Deborah, thanks for choosing to stay with us during your month long trip to Austin. We hope that you enjoyed those extra few days that were thrown in at no extra cost to you. We just purchased brand new windows that should help cut down on any outside noise. And the curtains are sound and light dampening. There is also a box fan for any needed extra sound blocking. We are located downtown so a certain amount of noise is too be expected but our location backing up to a historical district really is optimal for a peaceful stay. Perhaps there was extra construction or something taking place during your stay. I'm sorry to hear that the neighbors were being noisy. I know that our neighbors as well as ourselves are bound by strict HOA rules that require respect of all residence especially regarding noise. We always ask that if any of our guests have any problems to please contact us. We want everyone to have a great experience and we would absolutely do anything to ensure a pleasant stay. We know all of our surrounding neighbors and would definitely speak with them if they are disturbing the enjoyment of any of our guest's stays. Thanks again for your stay we thought you were a lovely guest.
Heidi's condo was perfect for our girls' trip to Austin. It was a great, central location, but still far enough off main downtown streets that it was very quiet at night. We were always able to get an UberX within minutes, and it seemed like we were always a ten-minute drive from anything we wanted to do in Austin.
Heidi is a thoughtful host, and we found all the extras we needed (including an air mattress with great pillows and bedding). She was also very organized, and got us all the details we needed to get in and have a comfortable stay at her condo. We would definitely come back for a future stay in Austin - thanks for everything, Heidi!
Erica we are so happy that you and your friends chose to stay with us and that y'all enjoyed your weekend out around town. Austin is an awesome city with so many cool things to do. It's nice to have a place located downtown to use as a launch pad for all the fun. And we are glad that y'all were able to have some great experience staying with us. Please know y'all are welcome back anytime. Cheers, Heidi
This unit was a joy to stay in. Newly remodeled, everything is NEW inside, including the cookware and appliances. The bath and shower are superb and the bed is better than my own. You can walk to everything or use the Car2Go app (they are outside the door in most cases) to zip around town. Loved the personal touches. Great stay!
Michelle, Thank you so much for the awesome review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Simmer Down-Town Condo. Austin is a great city and we agree that the condo location is perfect for getting out enjoying everything Austin has to offer. I will admit the bed at the condo is better than my bed at home too :) Good reason to come back soon! You are always welcome here anytime you are in Austin. Thank you for being such a great guest!
The listing was 100% accurate, and the photos and descriptions were also 100%. The attention to detail and the setup for the condo for rental purposes was amazing. Heidi was very easy to work with and an excellent host. The neighborhood was excellent and it was as centrally located as we expected. I would work with Heidi again anytime.
Alan thank you so much for your kind review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your time in Austin and F1. We love making our guests feel welcome and we agree with you that the condo is in a great location. You and your friend were great guests and you are welcome back anytime.
The condo was perfect for my visit in Austin. Great location and parking included. You can walk to Whole Foods (which I practically visited everyday!) and surrounding bars and restaurants. Heidi was very prompt in returning my texts and was overall hospitable. The condo was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Anne we appreciate you and your friends being our guests. We are so very glad that y'all enjoyed your stay at our condo. The Austin area is such a great place and we are thankful that we get to share it with great people like you. Please come stay with us again anytime you are in town.
Heidi made my first airbnb experience a memorable one! I was in Austin for a conference and was not happy with the cost of staying at a hotel in Downtown. The Simmer DownTown Condo was a perfect alternative for me during my stay in Austin. My other colleagues at the conference were pretty jealous of my accommodations! It is conveniently located within walking distance to many key places, yet is in a quiet neighborhood. The condo itself is beautifully maintained and cozy and had everything I needed to make my stay comfortable. From the time I made my reservation to the time I arrived in Austin, Heidi was very accommodating and hospitable and was willing to answer any questions I had. Overall, I would highly recommend a stay at Simmer DownTown Condo either for both business and leisure trips!
Damian, thank you so much for your kind words and also for being such a nice and respectful guest. We were very excited to have a monk stay at our condo. That is so awesome! We are very glad your first experience with airbnb was with us. And we hope that you will stay with us again sometime soon.
About the Host, Heidi
We are native born Texans, We moved to Austin over 10 years ago and love the vibe here. The live music and the great outdoors make it an awesome place to be. We love to fresh water fish and take our dogs to the off leash dog park. They love to chase the ducks.. On the weekends we usually have dinner and check out the live music downtown. This ia an awesome city to be in!
