Raquel and Jacob, thank you so much for letting us stay in your home! Though it was only one night, we had everything we needed and more. We were right in the heart of the city with an awesome view of the capitol, slept in a comfortable bed, and enjoyed a large, clean bathroom. Check in and check out was easy and convenient, I wish we could have stayed longer!
Thanks again, we'll definitely check your listings first the next time we make our way to Austin!
I could not have asked for a better experience with Raquel and Jacob. The apartment location is phenomenal and our hosts made sure every little detail was taken care of. I would highly recommend this apartment if you want to experience Austin for the first time.
Our hosts were excellent at communicating with us. They left great suggestions for things to do on their website and answered questions promptly. The location is walking distance to many popular areas including the 6th Street bars and restaurants. There is a Lavazza coffee shop around the corner. The loft was clean, had WIFI that worked very well and a view of the Capital. The two guitars on the wall were appreciated. We enjoyed playing them. We also loved to play the stereo and vinyl records in our room. The BOSE speakers made for great sound. I would stay again! We loved our first visit to Austin and will be back!
Raquel and Jacob made my entire experience so easy. The apartment was even better than I imagined. The location is perfect, and I was able to walk all over Austin without a problem. I had friends offer to come pick me up, but I loved the area I wanted to go explore on foot.
The furnishings are lovely, and they've done a tremendous job with even the little details like having a record player and/or speakers you can plug into. I really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I am so thankful I chose to stay here rather than the stuffy hotel room my colleagues were in. Already trying to devise a trip back and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
Raquel and Jacob were very friendly and helpful. Raquel contacted me a couple of times to make sure everything was going ok. The location is fantastic, it's walking distance to just about everything including great restaurants, bars and major sports and entertainment venues. There's also nearby car2go and bike rentals if you want to get further afield.
Great location right in the heart of the city. Was disappointed with the AC. It just couldn't keep it cool enough
