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's place was "What yo see is what you get" accurate to the listing. I chose it because the bed was bigger than others available at that price, and it turned out to be very comfortable for me and my wife. We parked right outside the complex and although we did not meet Ben personally we felt like we got to know him through his emails and his artwork on the household. A great neighborhood to walk to good dining and other stores. Helped us enjoy our stay in Austin!
This room is right in the heart of S. Congress yet far enough off a side street that it's very quiet. We got in on a beautiful warm day and the streets were buzzing with activity. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops and rental bikes all within an easy walk. The room was bright, clean and Ben was a terrific host. We had privacy but he was great at answering our questions about what to see and do in Austin. The house is serene and quiet, no TV for a change (nice!) and a perfect place to stay if you want to be in the hub of it all.
My stay at Bens was exceedingly pleasant. I unfortunately never got to meet him because he was out of town the same couple days I was there for New Years, but he still managed to make it very hospitable. Easy cab ride downtown, and his suggestions were incredible! I had an unforgettable experience in Austin.
Ben was very helpful with all of his suggestions of places to visit and eat in the area, and in other parts of Austin as well. Was able to make lunch and dinner plans based on his recommendations and they were both great places. He was very accommodating to the fact that we were not available to socialize - staying for one day and one night gives little time to see everything, let alone make a new friend and relax at their place. But it was a great place to spend the night and Ben was very thoughtful. We came back after he had gone to sleep, but he left out a water pitcher for us. Thanks Ben!
We stayed at Ben's place last week end and I definitely recommand to go there if you are looking for a good bed close to the party life of Austin.
Ben is a kind and nice host. He prepared everything for our late arriving. A few days before our week end, he sent us a full listing of all you need to know about Austin, the tips, the good restaurant etc, it was really helpful - especially because we didn't have time to plan our week end in advance.
To go to the party we took Uber, this place is so close that it cost less than 10$/travel - safe and cheap ;)
Great location, comfortable and clean! I'd stay here again without hesitation, the gated community felt very safe. Ben was kind and welcoming, then gone for the night. His other guest room had a couple of "Brits" in it - they were delightful!
I had a fantastic experience staying with Ben in south congress! The room was really comfortable and based in a great neighbourhood with bars, restaurants and amazing live music venues around the corner! Ben himself was a great host and I always enjoyed chatting with him when I bumped into him in the kitchen. His list of recommendations was my gospel for the week. If you're in Austin and want to be in the thick of it, stay here!
