Great place in a great location. Just steps from the convention center and near 6th street too. Steve was flexible and nice. Would stay there again for sure.
This was my first time using airbnb. Steve was a great host. He kept in contact and his check in and check out instructions were clear and concise. His place was perfect for me and my buddies. It was a great location. Everything was walking distance from restaurants to bars. The unit itself was clean and well maintained. The fridge had snacks and the appliances were new. The air conditioning was great. The beds were comfortable and Steve left us plenty of towels. His place is perfect if you want to enjoy what downtown Austin has to offer!
Neighborhood was as about as loud as you'd expect for begin so near 6th street, but nothing too bad. Great location for what we were looking for regarding the convention center!
Perfect location to discover Austin. The flat is spacious and offers everything you need to enjoy your stay. Thank you Steve for the clear instructions. Definitely will come back if I have the opportunity.
We rented this apartment for a wedding weekend in July. We had 4 adults and 3 small children and the apartment was perfectly located, very secure, and quiet for the bustling location. We had no issues with the simple check in/out. Excellent communication with host was an important bonus.
Really enjoyed the location of this unit, only .5 blocks from the Austin Convention Center. Everything else is a 10 minute walk or less. Good amount of space for everything and the A/C worked well. Decent kitchen though we didn't use it very much. Would absolutely stay here again!
1) The condo was extremely clean and spacious!
2) Great location-- walking distance to Rainey Street, 6th street, the capital...you can do a run along the Townlake Running Trail, and a quick uber drive to many locations in Austin (Barton Springs Pool, Franklin's BBQ, Austin murals, South of Congress, etc).
3) Steve was very prompt with my questions via text message.
This condo comes highly recommended!

About the Host, Steve
you only live once, so make the most of it. I have made the most of it living in Austin for the past 25 years. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My ideal travel destination is a beautiful warm beach.
