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!

  • We had a great time in Austin. Amy's apartment was perfect. When we arrived we went to the grocery store and picked up some things so we could make a quick meal when needed. Our schedule was pretty full so having the kitchen was a huge plus. The apartment was clean and Amy was a great host. She kept in touch with us via email and made sure our stay was as promised. We will call on her next time we come to Austin!

  • Amy's studio was the perfect size with the perfect amenities. We didn't really use the kitchen, but it was nice to have that option. It was our first time in Austin, and it was wonderful to be so near Zilker park and all the neat restaurants and bars in South Lamar, while still remaining a short jaunt from downtown. Austin being a very easily walkable city - it was nice to be away from the center, but near enough to get there with a 30 minute walk. Amy was really sweet and made sure to check up on us by email to see if we we're doing well, which was nice. An extremely relaxing time.

  • We love this apartment! The location is great, we could walk to everything we needed: coffee, restaurants/bars, parks, etc. We really liked the juice bar down the road. It's in a great neighborhood close to everything but still peaceful and quiet. The apartment is beautiful and had everything we needed. We can't wait to stay here again! Thanks Amy!

  • What a wonderful studio! Amy is a wonderful and helpful person who made our stay completely comfortable and friendly. The studio itself is gorgeous - clean, spacious, and quiet, surrounded by trees in a beautiful garden. With a kitchen, table, *fast internet*, and living room, it felt like our own little complete home. Oh, and the location rocks too - just a block away from breweries, restaurants, bars, and the bus if that's not enough! We had a fantastic time in Austin, thanks in no small part to this awesome studio.

    November 2012
  • We had a great time staying at Amy's apartment. She was reliable, responsible, flexible, and accommodating. The apartment pictures are accurate, and the location is excellent with access to many different activities in the city. We would definitely stay here again.

  • My husband and I had a great stay in Amy's studio. It was so clean and stocked with all amenities. The location is the BEST!! We highly recommend staying here when you visit Austin for a nice clean space that is airy and homey that is also right in the middle of everything in town. Great place!!!!
