My humble abode has two spacious bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The master bedroom has one queen size bed while the guest bedroom has a super comfortable full size bed (which used to be my haven until my mom made buy another bed!). A fifth person can sleep on the couch, or I can supply an air mattress upon request.
The kitchen is small but efficient, and fully loaded with stainless steal appliances. There is a stackable washer/dryer inside the unit. I have a flat screen tv and dvd player with access to stream Netflix and Pandora. The condo is set up with Wifi.
My condo unit has a lovely courtyard view, and there is a pool on the property if you feel you need to cool your heels. You can also use the grill if you're craving a juicy steak!
This property is walking distance to almost everything downtown. The "bustling" street of West Lynn is about three short blocks away and it's here you'll find coffee at Cafe Medici (the NY Times gave it shout out last year!), Galaxy Cafe, Zocalo, pizza and other Italian fare at Cippolina, and if you're into cooking you own food -the local Fresh Plus grocer is also easily accessible.
You can walk to and enjoy the nightlife on West 6th Street in a mere 15 minutes (or hit up the flagship WholeFoods if that's more your scene). This town is yours if you have a bike or would like to rent from one of the many bike rental establishments in town.
We stayed at Jill's condo during SXSW, and it was great. Not only is Jill an amazing hostess, leaving us everything we needed to have an amazing stay, but the condo is clean, quiet, comfortable, and well located. We walked to the convention center each day and cabbed back in the wee hours of the morning. Definitely recommended.
Jill is an amazing hostess with a great spot in Austin! She delivered outstanding hospitality that far exceeded any expectations. I will definitely be checking if her spot is available the next time I travel.
This condo was fabulous. It was central to everything -- a short walk to some great bars and restaurants and a quick cab ride to downtown and other hot spots. And Jill is a great host. In addition to leaving us her home in immaculate condition, she also provided us with water and snacks, which was greatly appreciated. I cannot recommend her place highly enough.
We visited Austin for ACL (our first visit to Austin!) and this was the perfect place for us to stay. Jill was a warm hostess with a lovely 2-bedroom apartment. The apartment was decorated in a chic and artsy fashion and was full of great amenities -- wifi, netflix, fully-stocked kitchen, two sunny and comfortable bedrooms. More importantly, though, Jill made us feel right at home! She was a great communicator -- very responsive with questions we had (via e-mail and text) and offered a lot of great info about cool local spots to explore.
Jill even left a lovely welcome basket for us with beer, wine, snacks and breakfast foods (thank you Jill!!)
The location was very central as well -- easy to get around, near downtown, close to Zilker Park, South Congress, etc.
I'll definitely be back to Austin to visit and would happily stay here again!
