It was a perfect gateway for us! My partner and I had always stayed around Downtown on the previous visits; but we were delighted to find such a charming neighbourhood. The bungalow was exactly as described - cute and comfortable! Lots of useful information is provided to help the guests settle. The location is superb (especially for those travelling without a car) - 3 mins walk to the nearest bus stop and less than 10 mins stroll to the local restaurants, cafes and supermarket. Amanda and Dunstan were really helpful and prompt at responding to our requests. All in all it was a great start to our Airbnb experience! And, we look forward to staying with Amanda and Dunstan again on our next visit!
The listing description couldn't have been more accurate. It really is about just a 10min drive away from Downtown, meaning a very affordable Uber ride. This bungalow is located in a quiet, but friendly, neighborhood in Austin. It was very clean and cozy, perfect for a girls weekend. The hosts weren't in town, but we were able to meet someone who was dogsitting for them and he was really helpful in suggesting places to eat in the area. Having stayed in the noisy South Congress area before, I would much rather stay in Hyde Park any day. If I come back to Austin, I would come back to this bungalow!
This was a fantastic place to stay - everything was true to the pictures. It had everything you could want - in addition to the upgraded kitchen, it had a dining room, two bedrooms, and a good sized bathroom. Checking in was no problem due to their keyless system, so our late arrival didn't disturb anyone. The house came supplied with even the little things, like an iron and ironing board and some toiletries. It was a short drive away from the University and night life (about a 15 min drive, or a $10 Uber ride). The house was also walking distance from a park/golf course and coffee shops. You can't beat the price for the location and amount of space this place has. I only wish we could've stayed longer!
In the cutest neighborhood you will find this bungalow. There were four of us and we all agreed it was charming and clean. Perfectly located (close enough yet far enough). Also something that was important to us was the safety of the neighborhood and it was perfect and very quiet. I would stay here again!
We had a wonderful time during our stay here. The house was even prettier than the pictures and our hosts were VERY accommodating (when I asked if there was an iron in the rental they brought over a brand new iron and ironing board). They also have very cute, friendly dogs in the gated-in area behind the house, which was a big plus. There were good coffee shops/restaurants in walking distance from the house, and Uber/Lyft rides to Downtown Austin were very affordable. Would definitely recommend.
We had a great stay! The house was comfortable and cute, the neighborhood was lovely, the porch was amazing for Austin's hot summer evenings, and Dunstan was super helpful and responsive when we had trouble with the keyless entry. (It was very easy once we figured it out.) We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to friends.
About the Host, Ananda & Dunstan
My husband and I love traveling, discovering new (to us) music and checking out restaurants the locals love. We decided to open our home to fellow airbnbers cuz, well, why not? We hope you like what you see and come stay with us soon.
