Blaine is one of the best hosts I've ever encountered on AirBnB. We never met him, but he was so communicative and accommodating leading up to and during our stay - catering to our every need. The house is lovely, spacious and well-appointed. They have a great sense of style! It's a quick 10min cab ride to downtown and is nicely secluded from the hustle and bustle. I highly recommend!

Blaine's house was the perfect location for our trip to SXSW, conveniently located without being right downtown. A simple ten minute drive to the convention center, with great restaurants near the house, and a nice calm relaxing location. Great for a group of friends, with plenty of space in the house to chill!

This property was exactly what we were looking for. We had 3 couples and it was our first time in Austin. Blaine made us feel very welcome and even had Champagne and Orange juice waiting for us to make Mimosas. Blaine texted us on check in to make sure we had everything we needed and let us stay a little bit past the check out time. He was very accommodating. The property was great, and we will definitely let him know if we are back in town.

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.

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.

Response from Blaine & Rachel:
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 accommodations...she did not mention needing extra fridge space. Needless to say, I would not welcome this group back.

I manage the properties with my better half, Rachel. I work full-time in education policy and am working on a PhD. She is a professor at Texas State University. We have a fluffy dog and a sassy little black cat. When we are not working, we love to be in nature. Please inquire for info about scenic hikes in/around Austin. We also love to eat and drink because life is short :)
