We had a great time at John and Melissa's. The unit is clean, spacious, and beautifull decorated. They live in a great area of the city Zilker Park. You are minutes away from downtown and the South Congress Area. They are amazing hosts, providing us with lists of things to do. The apartment comes stocked with water, coconut juice, beer, and snacks!! The bed is ridiculously comfortable and the place is immaculate. The best AirBnB experience I have ever had.
We stayed at John and Melissa's apartment for three nights and it was perfect for our stay in Austin. The kitchen and bathroom were stocked with everything we needed. They also gave us a print out of eating places that they recommended. The apartment was very cozy and clean. We look forward to recommending this place to family and friends.
Great location, awesome apartment, just like in pics, we even had a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us. You can't beat the <10 minute walk to Town Lake. Will definitely stay here again, when I get another chance to do so.
Truly spacious, clean and convenient apartment, with great hosts, too. Would stay again whenever I'm back in Austin.
My girlfriend and I had such a great experience staying at John and Melissa's apartment. Melissa was soooo helpful with everything. The apartment is spacious and very, very clean. It was a quick 20 minute walk to downtown. I personally wouldnt trust a cab driver in Austin, so just walk. The area was peaceful and we felt 100% safe at all times. All in all a 5 star experience for us.
John and Melissa's place is positively perfect. It's in a quiet family neighborhood yet walking and short driving distance to much of the best in Austin. The space itself is lovely - tastefully decorated in a serene, modern aesthetic. The windows look out on the treetops of the neighborhood, making it very peaceful. And they are wonderful hosts - full of helpful restaurant and other tips. I can't recommend it highly enough! I know we'll try to stay here every time we come!
Great place, great location, great hosts. John and Melissa made us feel like we were longtime friends in town for a visit; they even stocked the fridge with beer and champagne for New Year’s Eve!
I couldn't have asked for a better host then John and Melissa, not only is their home centrally located to all the restaurants and shops it's clean and they checked in daily to make sure that we had everything we needed for our stay in Austin. I would stay there again on my next trip to Austin for sure!
What a find! We absolutely loved staying at John and Melissa's place. It was very close to all that Austin has to offer. The apartment was modern, open, & spotless. We couldn't ask for anything better. They also provided a detailed list of their favorite local restaurants, bars, & things to do. If I find myself coming back to Austin I'll definitely stay here again. Thanks John and Melissa!
This was our second stay at John and Melissa's garage apartment and you just can't beat this place! It has EVERYTHING you need for a perfect stay in Austin!
