Interaction with Guests
I tend to give people their privacy while being totally available for recommendations and suggestions while in Austin.
Amazing walkable neighboorhood with cafes, bars, restaurants, and more. Great public parks and pools nearby as well. Easy access to downtown, the airport, and I35.
High-speed Rapid Bus less than 100 feet from front door. Public bike rentals available nearby as well.
Just be respectful and clean, please!
Ben was very welcoming and we felt at home there during our stay. His home is very clean and the guest room has everything needed, although there are no tvs, microwave, toaster or toaster oven...but there is so much to do, see and eat in Austin that it wasn't a problem. The location was great, close to the busses and just a short walk to all that South Congress has to offer. For the price, it can't be beat!
Our host provided very thorough and simple instructions to access the unit. He also provided an excellent list of recommendations in the South Congress neighborhood that we enjoyed thoroughly. Ben was very friendly and accommodating!
Ben was a really great host. I needed a last minute reservation when my original plans fell through. Ben confirmed me immediately and within two hours I was checking in.
The room was very comfortable and the use of the wifi was really helpful. The shower has terrific pressure and being tall, the adjustable head was ideal. The linens on the bed were clean and soft, the entire apt was actually very cozy and clean. The healthy snacks Ben left in the room and the water pitcher was a nice touch.
I wish I was spending more than one night here-- the location is PERFECT for wandering around SoCo. I used Uber to get here from the airport and it was really inexpensive and easy to find.
The complex is very secure and getting in was very easy with easy instructions from Ben. I highly reccomend Ben's little oasis for trips to Austin, especially if you're going to be on foot-- plus there are bike rentals nearby if you prefer that.
Ben's room and apartment are just as described. The accommodations are nothing fancy but they are clean, comfortable and quiet.
Ben is an awesome Host! The room was wonderful and the bed very comfortable. A beautiful apartment in a great location with Ben as a terrific Host! Janice :)
I only stayed one night with Ben and everything worked out great! He was very responsive and thorough in his communications before check-in and he was at home to welcome me when I arrived. The room was nice and clean and I had everything I needed for my short stay. Thanks Ben!
