Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Amy's apartment is super comfortable and equipped with everything you need (Amy even brought us a tea kettle!) It is very light and spacious and Amy was very quick to respond to any queries we had. We ran into Amy and her family during our stay and they were very welcoming.
    The apartment itself is in a great location, with some good restaurants and bars close by, and you can walk into Downtown or take a short cab ride.
    We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

    Response from Amy:

    Thank you, Marie, I appreciate the nice review. We'd love to have you back.

  • I stayed with Amy and her family for a month. This is a beautiful super clean
    garage apartment. The location is excellent and within
    a 10-15 minute to everything Austin. The flagship Whole Foods is just
    a short walk. Amy is a perfect host. The apartment is exactly how it is
    represented in the photos only much nicer. It is a super great value.
    Thanks Amy!!

  • Amy´s flat lies in a beautiful and silent area of Zilker. The flat has all you need for a nice and practical stay. The studioflat was clean and neat. The host Amy was helpful and provided assistance when needed. We can really recommend this flat! It is a perfect example of what Airbnb should be! A little tip: rent bikes for quick trips around in the area and to the city centre.

  • We loved staying in the Zilker studio! Amy and Rick were excellent hosts...always available in the month that we stayed, very helpful. They actually made several upgrades when we were there that made the studio even more comfortable. Their back yard was beautiful, very green. We loved seeing the treetops from our studio windows.

    The studio is an easy walk to the Hike and Bike Trails at Lady Bird Lake (also called Town Lake); there is a leash-free area for dogs on the trail. We were able to hear a number of excellent musicians while visiting and ate at several really good restaurants.

    The studio is very clean, the colours relaxing, and the furniture comfortable. We highly recommend Amy, the studio, and the Zilker area. In fact, we can't wait to visit there again!

  • Perfect location and perfect studio. The layout and decor was great with every comfort in mind. A very thoughtfully designed space. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Would love to go back and stay there again!

  • We had a wonderful time during the week we stayed here. The apartment is beautiful and very cozy. The perfect amount of kitchen supplies were provided. Amy and her family live right across the backyard, so we could just knock on their door if we needed anything, but we never did, and we had our complete privacy. We will definitely try and stay here the next time we visit!

  • The apartment was perfect! Super clean and had everything we needed. Location was great- we just took a very short cab ride to downtown. We will definitely stay here again!!!:)

  • The apartment was nice and clean - we had a great time and it was the perfect location to discover Austin by foot/bus. We didn't have much interaction with Amy & Nick but they came out to say 'bye' when we left.

    November 2013
  • Amy and Nick were great. I stayed at the apartment for 4 nights because I was in town for a wedding and it was the PERFECT get away from all of the commotion of the wedding activities. They were understanding of the influx of people that came over and were very gracious hosts. The apartment itself was wonderfully decorated and very spacious. If I ever need a place to stay in Austin again, I will stay here. It's close to everything and at the same time a quiet, safe getaway. Highly recommended!

  • We stayed with Amy and Nick during the week of our wedding and the experience was wonderful! Amy and Nick were incredibly accommodating and helpful and so friendly. . .they even put together a beautiful flower arrangement as a congratulations! We loved the space and had no complaints. The location was perfect and the ammenities were top notch! Our little dog loved their beautiful yard and their cozy little space! We will definitely be back!
