Interaction with Guests
We hope to meet all our guests, but things get busy, and Austin has so much to do! We usually do an easy self check in-and meet whenever if possible. Our main house is across the yard if any problems arise, but like to maintain our guests total privacy!
East Austin is always rated one of the hippest, trendiest areas in the country. Being so close to downtown, we have access to tons of new bars, bistros and coffee shops, as well as being only a few blocks from Lady Bird Lake, which flows through the heart of downtown, where you can rent kayaks, stand up paddle boards, or take a beautiful walk/run around. The trail will also take you right to Zilker park, for both ACL , and Barton Springs!
There are a few bus stops within blocks, but we walk most everywhere. A cab ride down to bars/downtown is around a mile.
We have a very friendly dog that is in the yard, but if you want to avoid our happy dog there is street access to the house. You will have your own set of keys to get in and out whenever you like. Plenty of parking on the street if needed.
One of the most inviting Airbnb's I've ever stayed at! Joey and Steph were welcoming, friendly, and provided just the right amount of privacy and hospitality. The guest house was in great condition, everything was clean and well kept. They even set up a comfy (no really it was) air mattress for our extra people. The location was great-just a short Uber ride or walk away from Rainey Street & downtown. I hope to stay here again soon!
We had a wonderful time in Austin and we're given a really warm welcome :-) the accommodation was private and comfortable and the hosts were really friendly, helpful and easy going. Thanks for having us x
This was my first time using airbnb and it was wonderful! The family was very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The house was exactly as pictured and in a great location to great food, bars, and the downtown area that Austin offers. We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it!!
Here's all you really need to know: the location is great, the house is awesome, and Joey and Steph are two of the most wonderful people you're likely to meet. Book it without hesitation.
My wife and I stayed for almost a month with our 6 month old son. It was the perfect space for a small family. It's cozy, very tastefully decorated, and it's got everything you need for a short or long stay. The kitchen was fully kitted out if you want to cook, the shower was great (i.e. heat + pressure = awesomeness), and the couch upstairs should be in Austin travel guides as a great place to take a nap.
The house is in the heart of the east side, which is bursting at the seams with food trucks, bars, lounges, and coffee shops. Many of these are a short walk or a bike ride away. There's also a park a few blocks away. If you're coming to Austin for a vacation, there's really no reason to stay anywhere else.
What really sets this place apart is Joey and Steph, who were amazing hosts. They were super responsive, kind, interesting people that made us feel at home instantly. Are you still reading this? Why haven't you booked it yet?
It was my husband's second stay and my first at this apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a wonderful peaceful sense about it. It is clean and spacious. Joey met us at the gate, with their friendly dog and both made us feel very welcome. The apartment is in a very quiet, peaceful area with lovely restaurants close by. We will stay there again.
What a great place! Steph and Joey were great hosts and very accommodating. Wish I could have stayed longer.
