My wife and I stayed in the Zilker Festival Suite for our visit to Austin during SXSW week - a time when accommodation in Austin is expensive. The suite is the smaller of the accommodations offered by Daniel on his property and comprises a bedroom with a Murphy bed, an en suite and a microwave and fridge. While "cosy" it was more than adequate for our needs and at the right price and Daniel was a perfect host providing us with a kettle and toaster. The location in Zilker is perfect for a visit to Austin.
Daniel was a very kind host and went the extra mile to provide a few thoughtful touches in the suite such as snacks and even a great local beer. I was down for SXSW so was barely at the place but it was an ideal spot to unwind (and catch up on sleep!) during my time in Austin. It's in a quiet residential area and even without a car was well-situated to two bus routes and some restaurants off nearby Barton Springs (try Shady Grove for a lovely beer/bite outside), South Lamar (the food at Odd Duck was amazing), and 1st streets (Daniel recommended a great veggie spot: Bouldin Creek Cafe). The space itself is small but comfortable, and your own entrance and bathroom help give some privacy. Overall a good stay.
Daniel had a friend available to greet me upon my arrival since he was out of town. Everything was ready and waiting for me. A comfortable stay, even when the weather had me shut in a few days due to rain. I was here on work and the room allowed me to set up things to do lots of work. Slept great. Hope to return in a few months. Thanks Daniel.
Perfect place for a long weekend. Private, cozy, great location. Couldn't have asked for more. Everything you needed was at your disposal.
Daniel was a great host. We stayed for 5 days and felt at home. The bed is comfy and spacious. It's a great neighborhood to stay in and centrally located to nearby restaurants.
I felt most welcomed by Daniel and the Zilker Suite. Daniel was was easy to contact and was most accommodating, including an early check in, giving a quick tour around town and holding my bags after checkout since I had a late outbound flight. The room itself was as advertised, and included a ton of amenities. Overall, I didn't have to worry about a thing, which is perfect when traveling.
Daniel is a great host. He is accommodating, nice, and friendly. He went above and beyond by giving us a nice bottle of wine and some delicious homemade cupcakes for my girlfriend and I (it was Valentine's weekend).
The place itself is a nice and cozy suite ("Festive Suite") attached to Daniel's house. We enjoyed complete privacy during our stay. The suit comes with anything you would want for a weekend getaway (bathroom, shower, bed, sofa, T.V., Wi-Fi, some toiletries, small refrigerator, microwave, and dishes and utensils). The place was spotless clean too.
The location is great. About a 20 minute walk from Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park. It is a quiet and serene neighborhood.
We also had the pleasure of enjoying some of the dogs Daniel has. Since we are both animal lovers we were thrilled, but if you do not share the same appreciation for pets do not worry -- the dogs are mostly in the backyard patio so you do not have to interact with them if you do not want to.
Looking forward to staying at the Festive Suite again!
