Blaine's house is cozy, and uniquely decorated. Very convenient location with two gas stations, a sonic and Whataburger all within walking distance. Close to downtown. He checked in on us to see how we're doing. I recommend this location.
Blaine was very helpful getting everything set up. The place was fantastic - easy to find and perfect for what we needed!
Blaise was very helpful since the beginning. The explanations for the house we're really clear.
The house was very nice and clean! Thanks Blaine
The first hour we were at the house was spent cleaning the floors, counters, and fridge. There was no room for us to put refreshments for the weekend and the house smelled like garbage. There were stains, dog hair, and dirt all over. We had to go purchase febreeze to cover up the smell. The owner did offer to bring breakfast to make up for the messy conditions, but we still had to walk around in the filth.
I hired a professional cleaning service to come and clean the entire house before Marilyn's stay, as I always do. She did not let me know that there was an issue with the cleanliness until after they had supposedly "cleaned for an hour"...leaving no evidence of any issue. I have a hard time believing it was as bad as she described but I did give her the benefit of the doubt.
To make it up to her, I offered to provide a full brunch service for her group, complete with fresh fruit, cheeses, preserves, bread, yogurt, coffee, mimosas, breakfast tacos, salsa, queso, etc. Marilyn took me up on this offer, then bailed as I was heading over to deliver it. To be clear, she asked me to get up early, buy all the supplies and then left as I was on my way over to the house, leaving me with almost $100 of breakfast items.
In regards to the fridge space, I asked Marilyn prior to check-in if she would need any special (email hidden)e did not mention needing extra fridge space.
Needless to say, I would not welcome this group back.
Blaine's home is very unique and comfortable. I stayed there with a party of 6 and we all fit very comfortably.
Blaine responded very fast and was very easy to work with throughout the entire process. Great Host!
The place was awesome, spacious, and with a lot of character. Would stay here again and again!
Blaine's house was very comfortable and he was a great host. 5 friends and I stayed there for the weekend, the house had everything we needed and was a short walk away from coffee and a really good burrito place. We never met Blaine in person but communicating with him was a breeze (via email and over the phone). He sent us a word document with house details that made getting in and out quite nice. I will definitely be making an effort to use Blaine's residence again when I return to Austin.
