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.
This is a great place to stay in downtown Austin. The apt is comfortable, tastefully decorated, and the location is close to everything you need. Our flight was delayed for hours and we did not arrive until 1AM. Steve had bagels, cream cheese, and OJ waiting for us in the fridge.
The master bed was super comfy, a big plus in my book. A lot of the beds when you travel aren't very comfortable IMHO but this one was perfect.
Steve was super easy to get a hold of when I had a couple of questions prior to our arrival. I highly recommend this place.
Everything was exactly as described. The condo is definitely in the perfect location for Austin. Everything was extremely easy to get to and within walking distance. Check in and check out were very easy and straight foreward. If we ever come back this would be an ideal spot.
The apartment was great, exactly what we needed. Steve laid everything out clearly and was very responsive during the booking process. I would definitely stay here again.
This was the perfect place for our group. We had an event at the convention center and the location was ideal. There were six of us and it was so much better than staying in a hotel. Check in was it easy and Steve was very accommodating and reachable. We would definitely stay here again.
The condo was super convenient, and comfortable. We came for the Austin Marathon and it could not have been a better location as only a couple blocks from both the finish and start areas. Unit was in good shape, clean, and exactly as expected. A problem with our TV was fixed very quickly when Steve had a maintenance person come a resolve it.
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.
