Christy's house is lovely. In a quiet neighborhood that is a 15 minute walk to South Congress or a 25 minutes walk to the busier areas north of the river.
The house was clean and her and her husband made sure we were well taken care of. I highly recommend staying at this house for an enjoyable Austin experience.
This house was fantastic - Incredibly well decorated and equipped. We were able to fit 8 people very comfortably and had everything we needed to enjoy the stay. Christy was a great host and had left detailed instructions for all the house amenities, where things were, and was available for any questions that came up.
house was great, more space than we needed for our party. good location for ACL, was obvious christy knows what she's doing.
Our friend recently moved down to Austin so we thought we would pay him a visit. Thankfully we found this lovely house just outside of downtown Austin. This spacious house was able to fully accommodate all of us under one roof. You can easily walk anywhere you need to go, either downtown or some of the food trucks just south of Congress.
It's pretty close to the entrance to ACL, so if that's why you're staying at this house, you will not be disappointed.
Christy was a wonderful host and they did an amazing job having the house ready for all of us. They even left us a little arrival gift.
The house, location and host were all top notch and I would highly recommend staying here.
We stayed at the house this weekend for a girls weekend and the house was absolutely perfect! The house was super clean and very organized, making it easy to feel welcomed. The location was perfect for shopping on South Congress during the day and going out for dinner and drinks downtown. Christy is so easy to work with and very accommodating. I highly recommend this house for any medium to large group getting together!
We had a big group in town for the weekend and Christy's place was absolutely perfect. She was so accommodating in getting us set up and her house was fantastic. A great place for a group of 10-12 like us, with plenty of great beds to sleep. Very close to some great restaurants and fun night life. We had an awesome experience and I would highly recommend!
The perfect place for larger groups, our stay here was amazing. (We had 10 adults, but the place is also great for children.) The location was ideal for us - we wanted to be close to the action (easy walk to the downtown center), but in a beautiful quiet neighborhood for some relaxing peace. There is so much space to enjoy... both indoors & outdoors. It was beyond our expectations... even better than the beautiful pictures online.
Christy did an AMAZING job setting up the place and offering all the amenities and more! Communication leading up to, during and after our stay was wonderful. She was always available, responsive and friendly. She provided great recommendations for places to visit and eat. I even left a rented bicycle helmet in the garage and she helped drop that off at the rental store. Those little things made the experience tremendous. Next time I'm in Austin, I'll definitely try to stay here again... whether it is a small or large group. Amazing deal for the size, quality, location and service!
I highly recommend this house! Simply amazing.
Every part of our experience was wonderful. Christy was flexible with our early check-in time, left us a bottle of wine, snacks, some food, and even toiletries in case we forgot some!
As the house was so wonderful, we ended up spending more time there then we initially expected. The Kitchen, dining, and living area were so open that it was easy for a large group to interact with one another. She left very clear instructions on how to use her tv with netflix (which we used to rest one afternoon), her multiple speaker systems (and airport express for outdoor control of the music), grill, and I'm sure some things I'm forgetting.
The house was simply gorgeous. So well decorated and cared for, that even though we were a bachelor party, everyone instantly knew that this was someone's home and should be respected.
Christy was also great with giving us directions and suggestions on some things to do and see while in Austin. Everyone in our group had a great time, and we can't wait to come back to visit.
Christy's place was amazing, location was great, house was even bigger than we expected! Left food and alcohol available to her guests, pretty unheard of even in the best of the AirBNB world! Loved her place, wish i could afford to stay here for ACL, the location is perfect and there were more beds than even our huge group needed!
What a great house! It was exactly as described and had a very comfortable and homey feel to it. Christy was such a fantastic host and very thorough in her instructions. She also provided a super helpful how-to pamphlet, as well as, some reminders around the house. There was plenty of parking and plenty of room in the house...especially enjoyed the deck! The place is located just a short walk across the river to downtown and also close to a great park with a view of the city. This place is perfect and I would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Christy for everything!
