From booking to departure (and even a bit after when I discovered I left something in the house), Annessa was gracious and welcoming. SUPER easy to communicate with, even though we did not meet her in person. My group of 7 was very comfortable -- 4 of us shared 2 queen-sized beds, and the rest slept alone on a twin, a double futon, and an air mattress. You could fit 3 more folks in those spaces, but they'd have to be good friends! There were plenty of linens for everyone, and the house is even more beautiful and spacious than it appears in the photos. For our SXSW trip, this location was great -- away from the downtown madness but just a short cab ride to the action. I also imagine that if you had a bike, you'd probably find it easy to ride downtown. The neighborhood is quiet, the neighbors friendly, and all in all this was a perfect stay for us. Highly recommend and would absolutely return!
Felt very at home. The house was extremely neat, clean, we had everything we needed and more. She even supplied us with some food and drinks!
We had more than enough room with 6 of us staying there. Could have easily accommodated a few more.
The backyard was very private and the neighborhood was peaceful. We hung out in the back, listened to music and never felt like we were bothering anyone.
Can't say enough about the warm welcome that was offered when we arrived and it truly is a great location if you want to be very close to all the action downtown!!
Would definitely stay here again!
Everything was great for our SXSW stay. The home was perfect, there was plenty of room to accommodate all of the guests and the location worked out well. Mrs. Baird was even kind enough to leave us coffee, food and drinks.
The group consensus was that we would rent the home again.
The reservation was canceled 80 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Fantastic home...warm and comfortable...made for a near-perfect Austin base of operations. The hosts were generous with their home and available for advice/answers to questions/etc. Would definitely return here if our travels take us back through town.
Highly, highly recommended.
This is one of the most beautiful spacious houses i have stayed in through airbnb. It was a great location for getting to Zilker park by foot and an easy 2mile stroll to the entertainment of South Congress.
The best part about the house is how accommodating/friendly the home owner Annessa was. Not only did she take her time to show us all round the house but she had also left numerous goodies -juices, coffee, bread, cheeses, wine, beer and toiletries. This was an unexpected treat!
I would highly recommend this home, we had 9 adults in total and there were no issues accommodating us all.
Annessa and Michael's house was an absolute joy to stay in. The pride they have in their home is so inspiring... It is even nicer than the pictures can show. Super roomy and comfortable for my party. It's close to everything, and we had no problem finding amazing food and good times within minutes of the house. Neighborhood was quiet, and we wound up giving one of the neighbors a ride to the F1 race... Can't wait to come back next year!
