The house is exactly like in pics. Lovely and comfortable. Great neighborhood, close to some great restaurants and a cheap uber ride to downtown. Wished we could enjoy Ilker park but was way too cold to do outdoorsy things when we were which was really sad given the options.
Only caveat is for light sleepers. The train goes by and woke me up a few times in the middle of the night as did the birds. In the early morning. Wear ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Otherwise a wonderful stay!
Michelle's house is spacious and comfortable with attractive furnishings, posters and a great selection of books. The neighborhood is pleasant and convenient to Zilker Park and even has a new Alamo Drafthouse in walking distance. Great screened patio and yard. Michelle was quick with responses to any questions and checking in to the house (even after a late night flight) was simple.
Small aspects that could be improved--both bedrooms are large and attractive but the master bed mattress and frame was pretty creaky so my wife and I switched to the other bedroom for better sleep after the first night. The one shower/tub oddly has a built in storage cabinet above it; I'm average height but only had about 3 inches clearance over my head and had to bend to get under the shower head. Someone 6"2 or taller wouldn't be able to stand up fully in there.
The most charming 2bedroom house in the most central location. Great kitchen, space, space and more space/ the lot is huge and screened dinning area could be an ideal live in 24/7 space. Can't wait to rent here again!
We loved staying here! So warm and welcoming and a fantastic location close to everything. The caretaker reached out to us before we got there to make sure we knew he was available if anything was needed. Everything was just perfect. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch in the back. What a lovely space!
Michelle's home was the perfect place for our girl's weekend. The house itself is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Her kitchen provided all the tools we needed to dine in and the house is within walking distance to a number of great restaurants to dine out as well. We very much enjoyed making use of her gorgeous, screened in, back patio for morning coffee. The location was close to Zilker Park, hiking trails, bicycle rental shops and kayak rentals. Another plus was the Peter Pan mini golf course where we killed some time before our flight departed at the end of our trip. Dave, her property manager, was very responsive and easy to communicate with. He gave us some great recommendations for things of interest in the area. I would highly recommend this listing to anyone considering a visit to Austin, TX.
The house is gorgeous! Very cozy with a well supplied kitchen. Felt like home. The back porch was what sold us on the rental and it didn't disappoint (unfortunately we weren't able to use it as much as we'd hoped due to cold weather). Great neighborhood close to everything. Check in and out was super easy without any hassle. Overall this was an amazing rental and we are so pleased with our experience. Thanks Michelle (and David).
Michelle's place was excellent, on of the best places I've stayed on airbnb. It was quiet and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The covered patio out the back was lovely and perfect to get an afternoon of work done sitting in the Austin sun. The host was also very responsive and helpful to all our questions. I would love to stay there again!
