  • Christian and his team were very easy to work with and responded to inquiries quickly. Accommodated early check in, which we appreciated. The house was very clean and had everything we needed - awesome rooftop deck! The only negative was that there wasn't any hot water for showers, but not the end of the world.

  • The house and location were perfect for our five-person reunion.

    The house had great options to relax and talk inside and outside on the porch when the weather got a little cooler. Bedrooms were comfortable (each one had a ceiling fan) and all located downstairs so we could go upstairs for coffee and not disturb others. We also enjoyed looking through his book collection--some great picks on design.

    The location is walking distance to some cool bars on 6th street. The neighborhood is in a state of gentrification so it's not the best walk for sightseeing. It's also impossible to call for a cab pick-up in this town so we walked and flagged them down for going to South Waterfront for dinner or shopping.

    Response from Christian:

    Thank you, Judy! It has been such a pleasure working with you. We'd love to have you back anytime and really appreciate the time it took to provide us with your feedback.

    You are absolutely correct that Austin is not like NYC in that you can expect to hail a cab easily late at night. My trick for finding a cab from downtown at night - walk to the nearest hotel and have a bellman call you one. Some hotels (like the W and the Stephen F Austin) also typically have a line of cabs out front, so if you see a place like that as you are going out, take note!

  • Great place, good location and dealing with the team renting the house was a pleasure.

    Response from Christian:

    Thank you, Matthew! We thoroughly enjoyed having you stay with us. You are welcome back with us anytime.

    -The TurnKey Vacation Rentals Team

  • Great house and great amenities - love the rooftop area. The only downside is that it is located a little far from downtown 6th Street area. Cabs are cheap though, but it is hard to get one on Friday and Saturday nights after 10 PM.

  • Thank you to Christian for hosting us in his amazing home. On the day of arrival Christian was helpful and inviting. Our weeks stay was incredibly comfortable, with plenty of room, big beds, a great kitchen for cooking, an awesome living room and to top it off - a mind blowing view of Austin on the roof top. The location of Christian's home is very close to downtown and all the bars/restaurants on the East side. We really enjoyed our stay at Christian's home and would love to do it again some day! If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Austin, Christian's is definitely the place!

  • Christian is a fantastic host. I was delayed by the 3rd Hundred year storm in Chicago in ten years and he met the guys that got in earlier. Responds to questions super fast, which is rare. Don't overlook a host that actually gets back to you.
    The house is total bachelor pad fun, and the roof is the place to be to enjoy Lone Star and sun. Lone Star is perfect drinking for warm weather, I've gotta find some in Chicago. House would be perfect for 3 couples as there are 3 bedrooms. We had 8 men and it was a little close, but we were able to hang out and enjoy beers and food on the roof and you just can't do that in a hotel room.
    Located a little over a walkable mile from 6th street. Nice to be away from the craziness, and you pass lots of cool bars on the walk-Hotel Vegas and Hi Hat are just a few.
    I can't wait to get back to Austin!
    Thanks again,Christian!

  • Awesome place for a group to get together for a weekend. We were a group of college friends getting together for a yearly trip and were very pleased with the house. The rooftop deck and speaker system were a big hit. To say it is walkable to downtown may be a little bit of a stretch but feasible. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it.
