Calm, comfortable room in the back half of a separated duplex on a quiet street with your own renovated bathroom and shower area. Access to a new washer and dryer and cozy backyard deck with hammock and plenty of shade.
The house has an open floor plan with lots of light and access to a fridge and updated cooking area.
A few blocks from South Lamar with access to central bus lines running to downtown and the University of Texas. Walking access to cafes, restaurants, bars and shops (walk score=74). Five minutes from the legendary south Austin taco eatery, Maria's. (Click the MAPS tab above the photos to see list of great nearby attractions.)
The arched living room creates a feeling of openness and space, and getting a good night's sleep is easy with little surrounding traffic noise. It feels like you're out in the suburbs, holed away in this quiet neighborhood, despite being so close to everything central (~3 miles to downtown; ~2 to Barton Spring Rd).
Max was my first Air bnb host, and it was a fantastic experience! He's very easy to be around and welcoming. I was totally comfortable in his very adorable house. Getting downtown was easy, I just took a bus (direct, no transfers) or used cabs when I was there for sxsw interactive. A great find when I didn't have a lot of time to sort out accommodations for such an intense festival!
Max was a wonderful host. When my boyfriend and I arrived we were greeted with snacks, cold beer and fresh flowers. The room was lovely with a comfy bed and private bath. The location is a short walk to a lot of great local eateries and it was easy to get downtown via the bus. Max was very helpful throughout the trip and gave great recommendations. I would certainly stay here again on future Austin trips.
We just got home after spending 6 days at Quiet Central... we had a great time! Max was a wonderful host! He had flowers and some snacks waiting for us when we arrived!! With this being our 1st visit to Austin.. Max gave us some great suggestions on where to go and what to do! Great location, easy access to the bus for downtown and within walking distance to eateries. It was perfect for us. He has lots of games to play and opened his kitchen and frig to us along w/ his washer and dryer, which was awesome!! Hope our paths meet agains sometime. Thanks Max
Max's house was the perfect home for my Austin adventure. Conveniently located and very clean and nice! Max was a great host, around to chat when you'd like but very respectful of privacy when needed. He even had snacks and beer ready for us, perfect! I'd stay with Max again and recommend his place to anyone.
Nice place. Enjoyed my stay. Max (the owner) is a cool guy. He had purchased snacks and drinks for me. Often in the mornings we will chat over a cup of coffee. Note: His place is approx 3miles away from downtown. There is a bus stop about .5miles away from his place. I stayed with him during the sxsw interactive week. Finding a cab was difficult so I used a combination of uber, side car and car2go. My flight to Austin was super delayed and I did not arrive at his place till 4:30am. Upon reaching his place, I gave him a call. He woke up, came outside and greeted me.
I will definitely stay at his place agan. It's clean & homely.
