Denise's place is absolutely amazing! Super awesome stereo system, great modern finishes, and large place! Also, the neighborhood is great. Lots of restaurants, shops near by, including a great juice place that I went to a lot called Soup Peddler. Also, Denise was always responsive by phone and email whenever questions arose. She went out of her way to make our stay incredible!! I highly recommend her place to anyone looking to have a great time in Austin!
We had an amazing stat at Denise's place. It was perfect- the location, communication, description/pictures and all the amenities Denise had in place were wonderful. She and her husband were extremely accommodating and helpful with any requests we had (including flexible check-out). I have used AirBNB a huge amount and this was my favourite place! I would definitely stay again and highly recommend anyone coming to Austin to stay here.
The apartment was lovely, and even in the Austin heat walking to South Congress restaurants and shops was easy.
Wonderful as always, everything was perfect. Thanks again for a great stay!!
Hope to be return soon!!
Everything was excellent. Very clean, well furnished, and in a good location.
Our stay at Denise's place was perfect! The apartment was amazing, the location was fantastic and Denise could not have been a better host. This is what every Air BnB should be like - beautiful, well appointed, extremely clean, well equipped, incredibly comfortable, safe and central. It was the perfect set up for 4 adults, and it was such a welcome respite at the end of each long day. We loved the place from the moment we stepped in and literally commented everyday how happy we were with the apartment and that we would absolutely return here whenever we visited Austin. The apartment was so well kept and everything seemed new. The comfortable beds were one of the highlights, as well as the clean, well stocked bathroom with great water pressure to boot. We didn't get a chance to fully utilize the kitchen but it modern and has everything needed for cooking. Another big plus point is the location - it is a super short walking distance to South Congress and 1st St. Best of all, Denise was incredibly gracious and accommodating with our check in and check out requests, and answered any questions we had from recommending coffee spots in the neighborhood to updating us on state of the city after the flooding (we visited the week after the storm). The apartment really did play a part in making our experience in Austin so memorable. All 4 of us were extremely happy campers and would without a doubt recommend this place to everyone.
This was such an awesome home! The listing description was 100% accurate and we were so pleased when we walked in the door. The house is so clean, comfortable and the interior design is right up my alley. They provided everything you'll need from coffee to start your day to all of the cook ware you'd need if you want to cook, basic condiments, makeup wipes, depdorant, shampoo, body wash, conditioner, q-tips, a hair dryer, the list seriously goes on and on. My favorite part was the fully stocked candy jar in the kitchen :) The location is amazing, it's a 1 minute walk to S Congress where you find the best shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed walking across S congress to 1st Street, which was only about a 15 min walk, where you find a few food truck parks with so many delicious food trucks to choose from. Also, Elizabeth Street Cafe is about a 15 min walk and it was probably my favorite restaurant that we visited. Bottom line, location is incredible, house is clean and stocked with any and everything you need, you will not be disappointed :) We were so pleased and if we're ever back in Austin I'd love to stay here again.
