Awesome apartment and awesome location. Loved the close vicinity to so many things. Parking was easy, apartment was clean and had everything necessary for a comfortable stay.
Raquel and Jacob were very responsive before, during, and after the trip. That being said, there wasn't much I needed to contact them directly about--everything I needed was in the apartment manual--how to check-in and check-out, food recommendations, etc. It was really nice not to deal with unknowns during our first trip to Austin. We had a great time, and the apartment is in a lovely, safe location. Being close to the capitol building was great for the views, and it was a short (~15 min) walk to other sights (bars and restaurants) we wanted to visit.
I would recommend the space to a couple or small group of friends--definitely folks you don't mind being in close quarters with, given that the bathroom is inside the main bedroom. That wasn't a problem at all for our group, but something to keep in mind for others interested in the space.
The pictures and description are all accurate. Raquel and Jacob are very nice and thorough. The loft is a spacious, beautiful place and in a great location. I would highly recommend this airbnb.
Very clean apartment with easy weekend parking and comfortable bed. Good value compared to hotel options. Great stay!
Fantastic stay! This was the perfect place for us to stay in Austin in the days leading up to our wedding, before we checked into a hotel with all of our guests. The location is fantastic, and the loft was exactly as described, and a very cute, fun, and comfortable place to stay. The daybed feature was especially great as it enabled my sister to stay with my fiancé and I for a couple of nights. And Raquel and Jacob were fantastic hosts -- very organized and responsive. Highly recommended!
Raquel and Jacob were in touch quite often to tell me of each step in the process and walk me through. This was my first experience with Airbnb, so I was very appreciative of their attention to detail and their willingness to answer all my questions. They even provided additional photos when I asked about certain things. Their check-in/check-out handbook was quite simple and easy to understand. The door code provided worked the first time and every time after. The condo In Austin was in a great location - just a few steps from the capitol, Congress street, great restaurants, and close enough to 6th street. The condo was clean, just the right size, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The shower is small, but not much time is spent there, so it was adequate. All in all, this was a great place to stay with lots of charm. I would definitely consider staying in this condo again if I ever get back to Austin.
Perfect place to stay in Austin. Clean, cozy loft was super convenient to ACL and downtown. We will definitely stay again upon our return to Austin.
