A few of my friends and I had a girls trip planned and this condo was GREAT. It was large enough for all 6 of us to fit comfortably and the kitchen and living room area was big enough for us all to sit and hang out together. The condo was VERY clean upon arrival and Steven even had extra blankets and pillows available. The location was great - 3 blocks from Town Lake and 2 Blocks from 6th Street. We walked everywhere all weekend. An unexpected perk - there is a Starbucks right across the street! Everyone just walked over as they woke up to grab breakfast.
Parking was a little tricky. The condo comes with 1 parking spot. We just parked the rest of the cars in the garage of the Marriott Hotel ($25/night). I guess you could also go put them in a free hotel lot farther away if you wanted. And there was plenty of street parking- although it was metered and a 5hr maximum in most places. Typical downtown parking issues - nothing you wouldn't expect.
I would definitely recommend this condo and will be using it again if I have another group coming to Austin!
There really is nothing bad I can say about the stay. Steve was very organized with his directions, the apartment was clean and comfortable. This was my first experience with AirBnB and I was a little worried about the idea of renting from a stranger. But it all went off without a hitch. The location was very solid, just two blocks from great nightlife, and many good BBQ joints within walking distance.
Perfect location! Right in the middle of it all! The home was very clean and as expected. Thanks, Steve!
Steve's condo is in the perfect location right near many restaurants, bars, shopping and much more. The condo was very clean and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Great experience! Would definitely recommend to others.
I stayed in Steve's Austin apartment with four of my friends and we had a great time. It's centrally located and very comfortable. We appreciated the extra effort made by Steve with providing orange juice, bagels and other goodies. The apartment has everything you could need. Would highly recommend to others.
If you're a group traveling to Austin, this is the place for you. 6 of us stayed here very comfortably, and as a group of girls we really appreciated having 2 showers and a washer/dryer right in the apartment. The beds were very comfortable, there's closet space in each bedroom with hangers provided. We were there the first week in January so it was a little chilly and the heat worked great. The location couldn't be better - short walk to all the bars on 6th street and a lot of nearby restaurants (we also frequented the juice/yoga place a block away). Steve was very thorough with his directions beforehand and answered my phone call right away when we were checking in and couldn't figure out how to work the lock (which is really easy once you know what to do!).
Bottom line: If you're a group traveling to Austin and you don't stay here, you're making a mistake. Excellent value for the price.
I stayed at Steve's during Christmas along with my 2 adult children. Unfortunately the toilets didn't work the evening we arrived which was Christmas Eve. Steve sent someone on Christmas Day to fix them and offered a small refund for the inconvenience which was very nice. The following day the city turned off the water for an hour ( a note was on the door the previous day relaying this information). There were dishes in the dishwasher when we arrived so I didn't know if they were clean or dirty and lint was oozing out of the dryer prior to me using it. Steve tried to make the apt. comfortable for us leaving juice, bagels, and cream cheese along with a nice list of things to do in the area. However, the overall experience was not what I expected.
Apartment was wonderful and in a great location. Steve was very helpful with recommendations and detailed logistics. Check-in/out process was very smooth and convenient. Only downside was the noise in the bedrooms with windows facing the street. Cars blaring loud music on Saturday night - if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs!
Beautiful accommodations! The beds were comfortable, towels plush and kitchen well stocked. Walking anywhere downtown was so easy. The horse and buggy carriage even dropped us off at our door at the end of the ride. We will definitely refer Steve's condo to our friends and family.Thanks!
