Great location and a very clean apartment. One suggested improvement is in the bathroom. The shower controls need to be adjusted to permit the shower to be warmer. The water temperature is luke warm at best. Also the airator in the bathroom faucet is clogged which makes the water spray all over the place. Nice TV and Bose sound system. Great air conditioning!
We liked our stay at Mark's place. The listing was accurate and met our needs (three New Yorkers!) exceptionally well. The bedroom was spacious, and there was plenty of room in the common area for an air mattress.
We appreciated the amenities such as the ironing board, washer and dryer, as well as the kitchen. It made our stay very convenient.
Two snafu's. 1. When the fridge door opens, it turns on the oven. So that's something to watch for.
2. There was an issue with some exposed nails on the floor in the laundry room, but Mark had promised to compensate me for the accident.
Neighborhood is convenient and quiet. Three blocks from all of the action on 6th street!
Overall, 8.5 out of 10.
Great place and super convenient location to downtown conference hotels. Mark was very responsive and answered all my questions beforehand, and everything was just as advertised when I arrived. I'll definitely book again when I need to stay in the area!
Mark was very helpful for us first time airbnb users. His response time is amazing! He answers all questions promptly. Mark's welcome packet was detailed and helpful. He even sent a Google map of recommended spots in Austin. Mark graciously directed us to local grocery stores too.
The place is accurately described and very comfortably hosted 3 of us. We felt (email hidden) meals in his kitchen and doing laundry.
The location was perfect for our week long event at the convention center - right across the street! Our family walked to many good restaurants and sights too. Being able to park in a secure, reserved spot was a great extra benefit as well.
If our event schedule hadn't been so full, we would have enjoyed the cute pool in the sister condo complex.
When we return to Austin, we will be sure to check if Mark's place is available. We had an excellent time. Thank you!
Mark's place was great! Communication with Mark was easy, as was the check-in process. Mark also provided a lot of helpful information regarding parking, transportation, places to go, etc. The photos posted are an exact match to what you see when you arrive. Very clean, lots of space and has all the basic amenities. The location couldn't be better. We walked to all the bars/restaurants on 6th St. (as well as many others on adjacent streets!), and we walked to the Capitol, SoCo, Rainey St., the bat bridge and restaurant row. The bus stop for the airport bus is right across the street. Very convenient. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to Austin!
We had a good stay at Mark's condo. The condo is in a great location downtown, with lots of restaurants within walking distance. It was also great to have our own gated parking spot (a huge plus!). We stayed at the condo in the middle of the week, so it was very quiet at night. Mark was a great host. He gave us super-detailed information about accessing the condo and was quick to respond. Thanks!
