Interaction with Guests
As little or as much as they like. Always willing to give directions and help if needed.
This is a quiet both Austin neighborhood so you will not hear the constant hummmmmm of roadway traffic and construction like you do in Austin. There is a nearby corner store and night club with pool tables. Its very close to the light rail, easy to walk to from the house.
There is a bus stop at the end of the street and the train to and from downtown is only a mile away.
Please be moderately clean and neat. Smoking is outside only.
We couldn't have been more delighted about our stay, especially considering it was our first airbnb experience. David and Jim are absolutely wonderful, kind, funny people and they are a blast to be around. Their house is super neat and tidy and beautifully decorated, they have a cute dog, there's a pool outside, and access to the train is super easy (about a 20-min walk) to get downtown easily. We couldn't believe the level of hospitality shown to us--whether it was the wine left on the counter for us, specific instructions on how to access the WiFi and get around, or just general kindness and helpful attitudes.
If you get a chance--stay here!
