Hi, I am an easy going girl who loves to travel so completely understand the concept of airbnb:) Feel free to message me with any info you may need about my listings!
A.'s apartment was perfect for what I wanted - a comfortable, quiet apartment right by the convention center. And A. was very kind and all the logistics were very easy.
Everything worked great - check-in, check-out, no noise at night, WiFi was reliable (I worked there part of the time), kitchen, etc. The apartment is also close to 6th street, where there are tons of restaurants, bars and a lively scene. And I took the airport flyer bus (#100) which stops across the street, cost $1.50, was comfortable, and took me to the airport in s apartment again in a heartbeat!
This place was a great location! Two blocks from 6th street and plenty of Austin Bcycle stops near by.
The apartment is in a safe location and really well-situated if you want to attend a conference at the convention center and/or looking for a place near 6th street (it is super close). Moreover, Amber is a nice host; easy to communicate with and quick in replying to your inquires.
However, I have two points that need to be mentioned: When we arrived, we found dirty cutlery and plates in the dishwasher – this is, for me at least, not acceptable. Also, the shower had black mold in the grout (in fact, the whole apartment smelled a little bit moldy). Notwithstanding these issues, it was a nice airbnb experience :)
Amber was a great host and her condo was spacious, clean, and well-situated. We had no problem using the bus to get there from the airport and were able to walk to 6th Street, Rainey Street, and other surrounding sites. She texted to check in on us during our stay and make sure that we weren't having any issues. Lastly, she was flexible about our flight being delayed and allowed a late check-out. Great stay!
Response from A.:
Thank you Ted and thank you for leaving my condo so clean when you guys left. Come back any time:)
It's a great location and made our stay in Austin easy and quick since most of the weekend we were at the convention center. Simple apartment no frills clean for the most part. Shower could have been cleaner but it's not the worst I've seen. The location is the best great coffee shops, bars, restaurants, and music close by. Airport bus is less then a block away. You have to pay to park on the streets but parking was never a problem even Friday and Saturday night. And it's only $1 an hour so not to bad on the cost of parking.
Response from A.:
Unfortunately I can't review the apartment itself, because weather delayed my travel so I didn't end up being able to stay there. However, Amber was incredibly responsive and accommodating towards my changing plans. I would definitely book with her again in the future.
This place is in the terrific, safe location. It is easily walking distance, 2 blocks to the bustling 6th street. It is also walkable to the South Congress shopping area.
I really enjoyed this apt as the living room area are very spacious.
I highly reccomended this apt. A.J. is great to work with. She promptly answers questions, and was available to help the entire time during my stay.
Great location . Very easy to contact the host . I will book with her again.
Response from A.:
My first experience with airbnb and A.J. made it a great one. The location is awesome, Austin is great, the host made everything pretty easy.
One recommendation, don't bring a car if you can. You won't need, Austin is super walkable. Its just a pain to figure out where to park it.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
