The same rules you'd want people to follow that were staying in your house. Basics - please smoke outside and be courteous to those around you.
Really enjoyed our stay at Hugh's. He was very accommodating and worked with our crazy travel schedule. Convenient location, comfortable, and cozy.
Our stay in Austin was just delightful. Hugh met us at the apartment to hand off the keys and show us around the place, and then he left us to our own devices to explore the neighborhood. Hugh's apartment is in a beautiful complex, and East Austin is an awesome neighborhood to walk around, with plenty of bars and a really delicious coffeeshop (Cuvée Coffee) within a short distance. Hugh also showed us where the Austin B-cycles (Austin's city bike share) were parked, right outside his building, which made getting around the city even more of a breeze. The apartment itself is very cool, with this whole industrial loft space vibe going on... And lots of neat art on the walls. We had a great time!
Hugh (the landlord) is the greatest!! Welcoming us with cold beer and offering airport pickup. Hugh had arranged for brand new airmadresses and netflix on the telly. But the best thing is the area. Walk into downtown through the vibrant EAST-side is SO cool. Shoppingcenter near by (5 min walk). Will very much like to come back!
We really enjoyed our stay, and Hugh was a great host. He definitely made us feel at home in his place and communicated well before and during our during our stay. The condo is spacious, bright and clean. We slept 4 people very comfortably. Location was perfect - we were walking distance or a short cab ride from all of the SXSW festivities, with lots of food trucks/bars/restaurants along the way. I recommend the place, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here on future visits.
Hugh was a great host! His place is clean and cozy. He responded to me promptly when I called and made sure we were happy. I will stay here again the next time I go to Austin!
