The space was beautiful and Jacob and Raquel were very helpful. I highly recommend the list of restaurants that they've provided. The view was absolutely beautiful!
Felt very welcome in the apartment! Pics very true, a very comfortable space. Jacob was very responsive to texts and even had great suggestions of things to do! It was a great experience.
This place is great. Neat and tidy with prime location. The front door dumps you straight onto 10th and congress which makes it really convenient to all that downtown has to offer. The views of the capital at night are hypnotic. I would definitely recommend/stay here again.
Raquel and Jacob's place was super duper convenient for walking around. We walked way East on 6th Street to White Horse and way South to all of the shops on South Congress. It's just a block from the Capitol and we had good drinks at the Driskoll, watched the bats come out from the bridge at dusk, and caught a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse. Jacob was super responsive to a couple of small issues, even bringing by a new coffee maker over the weekend.
A word of warning that the church bells are really loud at 8am so you might be served well by some earplugs, and when the heat is on (and I would imagine that this is normally not even an issue since it was unusually cold the weekend we were there) the windows in the bedroom really rattle and it sounds like a helicopter is hovering outside!
Thanks guys, we would definitely stay again!
Check in was easy. The online manual was extremely helpful. Place was cute, clean and very well located. Would stay again the next time I am in Austin.
Lovely apartment! Exactly as described and pictured. Having a code for the door was great. Recommend if you have an event downtown or are active and want to rent bikes. No need for a car.
