Interaction with Guests
We love to meet people from around the world and enjoy a good conversation during check-in but respect the privacy of those who would rather just get the quick run down and check-in.
The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. You're 90 seconds walk into the Greenbelt and the view makes you feel like you're out in the wilderness even though you're so close to the city. The location keeps you away from the traffic by access from the feeder roads to anywhere you need to go!
Public Transit available on the street outside of the condo complex and Cars2Go are always near.
Other Things to Note
The property is my home but also part of my project called Sustainable Giving Homes, where the rent from my long term tenants in Austin and the AirBnB income from these stays goes to scholarships for girls in Africa! Sustainably Give by staying in my pad! And share the idea to others to make this world a better and more balanced place!
The neighbors are very kind but do enjoy their peace and quiet. No loud parties please…
Leave the place as clean and nice as you found it!
We had a pleasant stay at Chad's condo, which was just like the photos. The unit is very comfortable, and Chad is friendly and easy to communicate with (although we did not meet in person). The location is great. It is not far from downtown and yet you feel like you could be far from the city in the hill country, with beautiful views from the balcony. And delicious tacos at TacoDeli nearby!! I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.
We had a great time at Chad's place in Austin- the apartment was spotless and had everything we could ask for. Chad was very communicative before and after the stay to make sure all went smoothly. The fruit & drinks he left were very appreciated. Location is perfect- amazing views of the greenbelt and easy access to the city. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in ATX.
We had a great time during SXSW in Chad's apartment. A lovely view and a welcoming and communicative host. We met Chad when we arrived at the apartment and he helped us with all the things we needed to know. Great and ideal spot to unwind after a busy day in a lovely part of Austin, easy to get to and from downtown from here. Great that there were bikes we could use!
Chad was a wonderful host and very accessible/easy to communicate with throughout our stay. He was very generous with lending us his bicycles, inviting us to partake in food from his kitchen, and making suggestions for places to eat, things to do. The condo was as described in the listing, although it felt a bit smaller than we had expected. He's got a few more furniture items than pictured, so it did feel a bit cramped at times for 4 tall midwesterners moving about and sharing one bathroom. Other than that, we wholeheartedly agree with all of the previous positive reviews Chad has received and would definitely recommend his place to others!
Chad was a great host and his apartment was lovely. He was very attentive to our arrival, his place was immaculate, he was generous with extra bikes and food from his kitchen and most impressively, he donates a portion of all his proceeds to a great cause - sending girls to school in Africa. He checked in to see if we needed anything during our stay. And the place was great. Comfortable and convenient to so much of downtown austin. We'd definitely stay again! Thank you chad!
About the Host, Chad
I'm a basketball coach/consultant and co-creator of COMETRY, which blends comedy and slam poetry into an educational experience for students in high schools and colleges.
I've also started a project called Sustainable Giving Homes where the rental income from the properties I own in Austin goes to educating refugee students in South Africa. A portion of your stay joins the monthly rental income from the local tenants in the other sustainable giving home towards that cause.
I love being healthy (why I live in Austin :) and experiencing new cultures. I travel heavily and love showing off Austin in the form of "local" spots. Whether you stay or not, I hope you have a wonderful stay in this city and experience all it has to offer!!
