Location PLUS!!! Steve's place was so convenient to everything! Steve gave great directions and instructions prior to our arrival. We had no problem finding it and getting access to the property. Everything was clean and modern. We had 4 adults and it was very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Austin.
There were 5 of us who were all attending a conference at the Austin Convention center. It was a perfect location! We were exhibitors and were able to roll all our stuff right across the street. Having a free designated parking spot was really helpful as well since street parking is not easy to find and not free. The apartment is fully equipped and clean. When we ran short of Tp and paper towels, Steve was very prompt to have more sent over. He responded quickly when I needed to contact him. The front bedroom can be noisy as it is on the street but the back bedroom is very quiet. All the rooms have nice big closets with a walk-in off the master bath. There is no elevator but it is only one flight of stairs and worth it to be in such a prime location!
The apartment is centrally located and a perfect size. Steve made sure to have various items in the fridge and cabinets to make us feel at home. Very clean and close to everything downtown.
Steve's place was great - a perfect setup for my group. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of downtown with easy walking access to 6th St., Congress, the convention center, and more. I'd definitely stay here during my next visit to Austin and would 100% recommend this place to anyone.
Excellent location and apt was as described. Steve was in touch prior to arrival with all instructions and had fridge with some treats for us. However water pipes from apt above are noisy, be warned!
Overall, we had a great time. It was a great location, super easy to get to and easy to get in and out of the condo. Steve replied promptly to emails and gave great suggestions for entertainment. There were some small things such as running out if hot water for showers but overall an excellent experience.

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.
