We absolutely loved staying here. The house is immaculate, clean and beautifully decorated. We were greeted with a beautiful welcome basket filled with goodies and a bottle of wine; just what we needed after our long flight. The kitchen was packed with all the necessary supplies and the fridge with all the basic necessities. The ultra modern design is really fresh and comforting. The bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable, beautifully designed and decorated. Although it rained the entire time during our 4 day stay, there is a beautiful outdoor seating area on the second floor, off the master bedroom that is gorgeous and perfect for cook out and gathering. This house is a gem and the owners Joan and her daughter Tamara made sure that our stay was fun and relaxing. Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful home, and we really hope we can stay at your place again the next time we visit family in Austin. Cheers
The house is exactly as pictured and is beautiful. The house came complete with a nice welcome basket of bagels and muffins. The location is great, with downtown Austin just a 10 minute cab ride away. I really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend.
We had an excellent stay! Really nice townhouse, everything as expected. Very clean and extremely well stocked with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. We were out and about most of the trip but this would be a great place for a family that would have more downtime and the need to cook at home. Tamara (Joan's daughter) was very easy to communicate with, absolutely no issues with check-in/check-out and she left us a bunch of snacks and wine which was very thoughtful. Would definitely recommend this property and will stay again! For future guests - we used Uber while here which was convenient and relatively cheap. that being said, theres not too much within walking distance so i would consider renting a car if you want to fully explore the Austin area.
Had a group of 8 guys in for a Bachelor party weekend visiting Austin from Chicago and Indy. It's an awesome house to escape back to after a day out on the lake and the next night on 6th street. Tamara was nice enough to let us leave as late as we needed on Sunday with a bunch of different flight times, and it's only a 15 minute Ride to the airport and an even shorter ride to downtown. Great location and spacious living area for a group.
Joan and her family made the experience very easy and simple. This was my first Airbnb, and I didn't have any questions with the information provided. The house was set up for the number of guests we brought, and there were many items and food in the kitchen for us to use. The neighborhood was easy to get to from downtown, UT, and the airport. Stop and get an Iced Bennu at Bennu coffee on your way downtown.
The home was a great loft-like space, well decorated, with great indoor and outdoor space. We enjoyed being nearby the city, but also having a nice place to hang out. Plenty of parking on the street. The neighborhood looks like more and more spaces like this are being converted and built.
All together we had a great time for six people. Joan was a great host and the whole experience was very easy.
This location was superb. Exactly as listed in every detail. Couldnt have been more happy with this location. Will most definitely try to rent this spot for all my austin trips.
This is a great place and Joan and Tamara made us feel very welcome. The home is new and modern, open and nice. Two separate bedrooms and full bathrooms (with an additional half bath downstairs) were great. It was quiet, clean and very relaxing. The home has a well equipped, clean, modern kitchen. There are a couple of convenience stores nearby for essentials - and the home was just a few minutes from MLK station. Perfect for our needs and we'd be happy to stay here again in the future.
Great place. Can't imagine better in Austin.
About the Host, Joan
I am a single grandmother. I live and work in Dallas but own this modern, contemporary townhouse in Austin. My children and granddaughter live in Austin. This is a family gathering place for us but it is not lived in usually, so it is free of clutter and very clean. I enjoy gardening, crocheting, and being with my family. My daughter, Tamara, manages the rentals and will take good care of you!
