A small 1-bedroom apartment with a location that is perfect for the live music downtown, walking distance to Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake and trail, Lake Austin, and golfing. Close to The University of Texas, the Texas Capitol and other Austin attractions. The apartment has WiFi, basic cable, and free parking. There's a grill right outside the front door and a swimming pool in close proximity. There is public transportation on the city bus just down the block.
The rental includes one bedroom with a queen bed, and the living room has a twin loft bed and a large couch. An air mattress can be provided as needed. I have a dog, but he will go with me when the apartment is rented.
I really enjoyed staying at Kristin's apt during SXSW 2013! It was about 3 miles from the conference center and downtown activities, and on days when there were no taxis available, there are two different buses that got me there in 15 min. Bedding, towels, and instructions were all ready for us when we arrived.
I appreciated the drinks and muffins that she left for us as well!
Our stay at Kristin's property was fabulous! The entire arrival/departure coordination could not have been easier, and Kristin was always extremely fast to reply with any questions we had via email or text. She even left us a few thoughtful surprises on arrival (fresh tea, beer, OJ...). So nice! We had a group of 5 staying Thurs. - Mon., and while it's a one bedroom, we all fit just fine (2 in bedroom, 1 in loft, 1 on couch, 1 on air mattress). You're in such a great city, so there's not much need to be there except for sleeping and showering. The location is great - just around the corner from a bus stop that goes directly downtown that we used quite a lot. Or it's just a $10 cab ride from downtown. Overall, we were all very pleased with the accommodations and highly recommend this property to others!
Me and my sister had a great stay at Kristins place. We were in town for ACL festival, it was hard to find a hotel, so I used airbnb and this worked out perfectly. We walked from Kristins place to the festival, it wasn't too bad of a walk. The apartment is spacious and there is room for quite a few people, even though we were only two people. The bed was the most comfortable one we've had on our 3 weeks of traveling around the South. She had left clean towels out for us and maps of Austin that we found very useful. Kristin was extremely helpful before and during our stay.
Kristin was very responsive and helpful. The whole process of reserving and arranging our arrival was very easy. Her apartment is conveniently located, and clean and comfortable. Thanks for letting me stay there!
Everything was great! Great place to stay on a budget! We were looking for something inexpensive and dog friendly. This was cheaper than a hotel with all the comforts of being at home. Great neighborhood and location!
Kristen was extremely nice and a great host. She accommodated to the time we got in, and didn't rush us out. Had everything a hotel would have... clean towels, travel shampoo/conditioner, and travel maps. I texted her later saturday night asking for the internet password, and she responded immediately!
I probably will try to spend more money next time, though. The apartment was smaller than it seems in the photos and although it was tidy and picked up, the apartment needs some help.
If you're on a budget, though! Great place to stay in Austin!
