This Place to Stay in Austin was PERFECT! Couldn't have asked for more. John & Carol were the perfect hosts-very available and also allowing us our privacy. The home was beautiful-everything new, crisp, clean and open. And being in South Austin was the best experience ever for our family. We shall return! Thank you for a wonderful time...
John and Carol should call this "a terrific place to stay in Austin". Our hosts had thought of everything including beverages, snacks, fruit and even fresh roasted coffee from Boulden Creek. Very comfortable and roomy bedrooms, terrific bathrooms with cool showers...all very new looking, clean and nicely furnished. While we didn't use the kitchen (so many great restaurants with walking distance) they seemed to have all anyone would need including a dishwasher. We also didn't get to use the patio with outdoor large screen TV or upper deck(via neat spiral staircase) but they looked great and perhaps we can on the next visit. A great place, a great value, a great location and very thoughtful hosts... would love to go back on next visit to Austin!
The place was exactly as described. Perfectly clean and looked great when we showed up. It's in a really nice, funky, Austin neighborhood. Close to a number of little places right on South 1st. Torchy's, Freddie's, Bouldin Creek Cafe. Only a block over from South Congress which also has a ton to offer. Easy access to downtown for anything else you might be looking for!
The place is perfectly set up for two people or couples with two identical master suites, so no fighting over the better set up.;)
The beds were super comfortable and the rainfall shower was amazing! We will definitely look for this place on our next visit.
John and Carol were fantastic hosts. When we arrived there food and drinks waiting for us in the fridge. The place was very nice inside and resembled a high-end hotel room. The location was perfect. Everything you need is within walking distance. Great eateries, coffee shops, and steps form S. Congress.
We had such a wonderful stay at The Place To Stay in Austin. John and Carol have it all figured out. We arrived as very tired and hot guests, and we're greeted with a fridge filled with beverages, two huge comfy beds to sleep on, amenities to cook with, and a washer and dryer. We spent the afternoon on our roof deck and caught up with old friends. John and carol are wonderful hosts and I highly recommend staying here while in Austin. It is situated in a perfect little laid back part of town, behind john and carols full time home. They were perfectly attentive without being too much so. They were so kind to drive us to the music festival (we were here for Austin city limits). All in all it was a perfect home in a beautiful and quaint part of town, hosted by kind individuals.
John and Carol were fantastic hosts - they made my friends and i feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The accomodations were EXACTLY as you see in the photos at the airbnb page - modern, and very tasteful. Double shower heads in both bathrooms - appreciated by all four of us as well.
In addition to being a completely charming place, it is located in my favorite neighborhood in Austin. Just a few blocks from some of the cities best restaurants (Lenoir, Sway, Polvos, Vespaio... Magnolia (hey - it's open 24 hrs!), and all of the fun clubs, shops, etc, on South Congress.
Location! Location! Location! We are former residents of S. Austin visiting town for a long weekend. You can't beat this location. A Place To Stay In Austin was super clean and very well appointed. Really is set up like a boutique hotel. John and Carol were excellent hosts, making us feel right at home and giving us our own space. We'll be back!
Austin Texas is an incredible place to visit. We moved to the metro area in 2003 and to South Austin in 2010; now we are here to stay. Our place is close by to world-class live music, a wide variety of food choices, and unique shopping experiences. We love it here and invite you to enjoy the neighborhood by staying in our completely renovated vacation rental space.
