I wish people who do not smoke in the house and no drugs.
When we first arrived to East Austin we weren't sure what to expect... Xavier and JoAnn quickly blew our expectations out of the water. The amenities of their home are wonderful and welcoming but it is the two of them that made our experience memorable. Extremely kind-hearted individuals, we learned a lot about Austin from JoAnn and also Paris from Xavier! Their home is conveniently located to many food and drink places in both East Austin and downtown. I'll definitely come back next time I'm in town!
I only spent one night and left early so didn't meet JoAnne, but Xavier was so generous and welcoming. He had a tasty snack waiting when I arrived, offered to pick me up from the airport, and gave me a ride into town. The room is nicely appointed including an ironing board which I needed. Great hosts! Would definitely stay again.
Xavier was very nice, he offered me coffee each morning and lunch in the afternoon. He is very close to downtown Austin which makes his place ideal. The room was clean and comfortable.
My stay at Xavier & JoAnn's was my first airbnb stay and they were fantastic hosts! They offered to pick me up from the airport and also drove around the main sites in Austin to show me the general lay of the land.
The location was excellent. Located on a quiet residential street east of downtown, the house is close to cafes, food options, and bars in east downtown neighbourhood. (P.S. be sure to grab a breakfast taco from Cenote cafe nearby). I also made use of the bike provided and it was a very quick ride to the downtown area.
The house is charming and the room was comfortable and very clean. Xavier and JoAnn are very thoughtful and attentive hosts and they made the entire stay very pleasant.
Bonus: Xavier is a great cook and I was greeted with a welcome snack when I arrived at their house. I also got to taste Xavier's cooking a few more times during the stay.
Xavier was super friendly and helpful, and gave us a tour of downtown as soon as we arrived, which was extremely useful. Our room had a ton of useful items already prepared, and although we didn't use them because we had a rental car, the bikes seem like a great way to get around considering the house is pretty close to downtown.
I had a great time! They are very friendly, picked me up from the airport, offered me some food and were very helpful in regards to the area. Walking distance from the good part of downtown, too!
Xavier and Jo Anne are incredibly hospitable. It was like staying with friends. Although we didn't get to spend a lot of time, they very kindly picked us up from the airport so we were able to chat. The location of their house was very convenient to all the main points of interest. We walked to everywhere (but you can use their bikes). Definitely recommended.
