Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Brooks' house is just as clean and comfortable as it appears in his ad. He responded promptly to my communications and was polite and helpful. Our visit to Austin was a seamless experience and everyone had a lot of fun. I strongly recommend this listing to other travelers and would stay here again in the future.

  • The house was great, and everything was as advertised. Brooks was easy to contact. The neighborhood was quiet and next to a lovely liberal arts college. The house was a fairly quick walk to the cool part of South Congress. I thought it was a very good value for the money.

  • Great location close to DT Austin. The house is awesome, clean and comfortable. The host is very accommodating and responsive. I recommend this location to anyone visiting the Austin area.

  • Brooks spot was convenient and a great home base for partying in Austin. Would stay again.

  • Great house in a nice, quiet, neighborhood location. This was a perfect amount of space for four people staying in Austin for a weekend. We especially appreciated the backyard with table and chairs and the washer/dryer in the garage.

    Location is close to everything on 78704 has to offer.

  • This was a tremendous location and an EXTREMELY comfortable home! It just felt 'right'! One room flows easily to the next. The spaces of the living room, dining room, patio off the dining room, and the kitchen are 'open' and easy for conversation, and all the seating and beds are very comfortable. With 2.5 baths and 4 women, we were never frustrated by lack of accessibility. It had amenities galore and, had we been there longer and/or if NO ONE was familiar with the town [one of us was], we would still have been set with all the reference and tour books in the bookcase. There was so much food in the cupboard and various kinds of spices in the rack, and types of extras in the refrigerator, that I hesitated to eat ANYTHING that was already there when we arrived, my first thought being "Does Brooks actually LIVE here?? How does he clear out so easily and so fast!?!" I guess he really doesn't, but with all the food available, I preferred not to take a chance! We decided that it was likely food stuffs left behind by previous guests. Still, we got our own and mostly ate out. We did help ourselves for hot tea in the mornings, though. I love the white IKEA dish set that Brooks has... and his simple, but cool, taste in decorating, a bit ethnic and 'world traveler' kinds of things for accents, yet his house has a simple, modern feel. The HUGE world map on the wall beside the dining room table was VERY cool for us, and led us to various kinds of travel conversations. The outside, patio table beneath the permanent awning (through the dining room glass doors) was a perfect spot for one of us who smokes [not me :)] and a relaxing spot to just sit and feel pleasantly 'in' the back yard. The neighbourhood feels totally safe... and it's nearby to where some very interesting stores and restaurants are on South Congress... where we spent the majority of the first whole day of our brief stay. We didn't use any of the numerous games that some adults and children will find delightful to have right there for them. We all expressed wanting to own such a sweet and comfortable home, and even started thinking in terms of doing an airbnb in the various places where we DO live. Will definitely continue using airbnb for future travels. Seriously HOPING I can return to Austin one day... what a great town... and a whole lot more to see than I got a chance to see! Seeing Leonard Cohen perform was superb, however! Brooks was very cooperative in our communications ahead of time, so there was no need to contact him once we were there... hence, we never met. It's clear that he expects people to be responsible and act like adults. Would not hesitate to stay again with Brooks if I return to Austin, a delightful town.

  • Close to downtown, easy cab ride. The house was clean, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Ample amounts of parking as well. I would stay at this place again.

  • This house was clean and perfect for our young family. It's in a central location and staying there was ten times better than a hotel. Thank you Brooks!
