This was my second time staying in Denise's gorgeously appointed apartment, and it will not be my last. Not only is the apartment well designed and functional, but the location could not be better. Denise is a great communicator and is always quick to respond. Truly a gem in a city full of options.
We rented this fabulous apartment for a 40th birthday girls' weekend. We loved it so much we each wrote a review:
We so enjoyed staying on Mary Street! Great location and clean, well-maintained property. The binder of Austin highlights was a very nice, thoughtful touch and we used it! Would definitely stay here again! - Missy
We loved our accommodations! The apartment was clean, cute and updated. It was a cozy place to rest in between our outings. The hosts were sweet and gave helpful advice on where to eat and what to do around Austin as well. They gave a lot of attention to detail on the items stocked in the apartment. I highly recommend this adorable, convenient little place to anyone visiting the area! - Erika
This was a perfect location for our girls getaway! The king bed splits into two twins, which Denise took care of for us before arrival. The apartment is nicely updated and very clean. It is right off of South Congress and a great launching point for exploring Austin.
We had a great stay in Austin at Denise's! The apartment was equipped with everything we needed and was in a convenient location to South Congress shops and restaurants. It was the first Airbnb experience of our travel companions and they weren't disappointed. I would highly recommend this listing to others.
Amazing apartment and even better location, next time I'm in Austin I hope to stay there again! Denise was super helpful in making it happen on very short notice. Incredible value, thank you!
If you're looking for a home away from home, that is top notch location, look no further! It's a beautiful cozy home with everything you need. My friend was sick right before our flight, so he spent a lot of time at the house, and loved it. I can not stress how amazing this location is either. Best pizza Home Slice, best burger Hopdoddys, even unusual amazing food like Torchy's Taco's, and Gourdough's, and finally the best cinema, the Alamo draft house. Why mention all these places? You're within a mile and a half or less of all of them. And there's dirty 6th and Rainey St. Again so close. Uber never cost me more than $7. But average $4-$5. Amazing. If Denise ever sells, I would buy this house! I loved it.
The apartment was beautifully decorated! There was a binder full of instructions as well as directions for nearby attractions/food options. Very clean and great A/C for the Texas heat. Private parking, very nice bathrooms with amenities, and comfortable beds.
Great location - only a short 3-4 block walk from the main boutiques on South Congress and yummy foods!
Best Airbnb host yet. Super organized, the place is awesome and in a perfect location. Woot!
