The listing description was completely accurate, and the place could not have been in a better location! It was right downtown, completely walkable from everything. Steve was fantastic and super accommodating. Could not have asked for a better time in Austin! My friends and I hope to return soon.
Steve promised a 5 star experience and delivered all 5 stars. What a place! The location alone is worth the stay. It truly located within walking distance of all things wonderful in downtown Austin. The inside of the apartment was great as well. All the beds were very comfortable. Steve provided bedding and towels for all the beds (four of us). The common area was very open and a great place to relax between outings. Also having two bathrooms with showers made life easier in the mornings when everyone was getting ready. Though we didnt use the kitchen that much it was nice having the option to put leftovers away in the fridge. If you have a group of people coming to Austin to check out the sites and night life you must stay at this place!
Location. Location. Location. Could not have asked for a better location for our trip. But with the GREAT location, comes noises...
Steve responded promptly to all of my questions. The condo's location was fabulous; right on the express bus from the airport and within walking distance to all downtown activities. It was also came in handy to have a parking spot available. The condo was clean and there were maps, books and useful information about Austin. It was nice that there were some supplies provided such as bottled water, coffee, tea, shampoo... All told it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Steve and his condo to others.
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!

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.
