Condo was awesome and in a great location. Mark's instructions made entry and exit easy. Would stay here again.
Mark's place was just as described - comfortable, clean, and in an ideal location! I was in town for business, and with a super early wake up, I didn't get to really enjoy the perks of being so close to so much. But it is definitely in a prime spot for taking advantage of Austin's fun! I would love to go back another time and do just that.
Back again. Everything I said in my first review stands. Great location—definitely recommended.
Location was great for a first time visit to Austin. We were in town for a wedding and found everything to be within walking distance. The condo is exactly as pictured. The room/bathroom was a little small, but more than enough for two. Host provided a great list of attractions/restaurants to try and various info about the condo. Communication was exactly what you want from a host, no need for contact but very responsive if anything comes up. Having the ability for laundry, wifi, and entertainment system was nice.
If you're older you should expect some noise in the evenings from the guests/homeowners after enjoying the Dirty 6 (6th street bars). Nothing ear plugs didn't fix and the location/price/ability to host friends before the wedding was nice.
Mark's apartment is in an amazing location, right by the exhibition centre, just a walk to Congress, an easy walk to Rainey St (well, it's pretty much easy walking to everywhere), plus good coffee within a couple of blocks at Houndstooth or Patika. Plus with a car space, there's a place to keep your car for the longer jaunts.
The apartment itself is very comfortable and just as described. The couches are great, and his living room has a great set-up if you want to just chill and watch some TV for a while.
I found the bed a little unsupportive—it tended to sag a bit—but it was very soft. I just prefer a firmer bed I guess. I'm sure others would have no problems with it.
Overall, though, we had a great stay at Mark's place, and I'd definitely recommend it for location alone
Mark was super helpful from the moment I booked. Very quick to respond and accomodate requests. His home is in a really great part of Austin and it was easy to walk to most of the places we wanted to go. Also, was super helpful to have a parking spot, so we never had to drive around or feed meters. His place was very clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again if I'm lucky enough to get back to Austin in the future.
Mark's place was really great! He gave detailed instructions on what to do when you arrive and made it really easy to get in to the place on my schedule. AWESOME location, just a block or two from awesome bars, restaurants etc. Having private parking was the best, as I was never worried about my car being left in a dangerous place. I would absolutely stay here again!
