This room is right in the heart of S. Congress yet far enough off a side street that it's very quiet. We got in on a beautiful warm day and the streets were buzzing with activity. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops and rental bikes all within an easy walk. The room was bright, clean and Ben was a terrific host. We had privacy but he was great at answering our questions about what to see and do in Austin. The house is serene and quiet, no TV for a change (nice!) and a perfect place to stay if you want to be in the hub of it all.
My stay at Bens was exceedingly pleasant. I unfortunately never got to meet him because he was out of town the same couple days I was there for New Years, but he still managed to make it very hospitable. Easy cab ride downtown, and his suggestions were incredible! I had an unforgettable experience in Austin.
Ben was very helpful with all of his suggestions of places to visit and eat in the area, and in other parts of Austin as well. Was able to make lunch and dinner plans based on his recommendations and they were both great places. He was very accommodating to the fact that we were not available to socialize - staying for one day and one night gives little time to see everything, let alone make a new friend and relax at their place. But it was a great place to spend the night and Ben was very thoughtful. We came back after he had gone to sleep, but he left out a water pitcher for us. Thanks Ben!
We stayed at Ben's place last week end and I definitely recommand to go there if you are looking for a good bed close to the party life of Austin.
Ben is a kind and nice host. He prepared everything for our late arriving. A few days before our week end, he sent us a full listing of all you need to know about Austin, the tips, the good restaurant etc, it was really helpful - especially because we didn't have time to plan our week end in advance.
To go to the party we took Uber, this place is so close that it cost less than 10$/travel - safe and cheap ;)
Great location, comfortable and clean! I'd stay here again without hesitation, the gated community felt very safe. Ben was kind and welcoming, then gone for the night. His other guest room had a couple of "Brits" in it - they were delightful!
I had a fantastic experience staying with Ben in south congress! The room was really comfortable and based in a great neighbourhood with bars, restaurants and amazing live music venues around the corner! Ben himself was a great host and I always enjoyed chatting with him when I bumped into him in the kitchen. His list of recommendations was my gospel for the week. If you're in Austin and want to be in the thick of it, stay here!
Ben was a nice guy. Room was clean. Ben made "check-in" time flexible. Shower had great water pressure. It was quiet and didn't notice Ben or any neighbors. Parking spot was always open.
Ben could not have been friendlier, more knowledgeable about Austin, or have a more comfortable place. I felt right at home, the bed was AMAZING, and the location is great! Ben's house is clean and room as well. VERY happy with this trip. BTW check out the Continental club, super fun. thanks ben!
Ben was very conscientious about making sure we landed at his place with information to help us be comfortable at his place and be familiar with the surroundings. We had never been to Austin, so that was especially nice. His location is very convenient to the main restaurant and entertainment district and he had personal recommendations for eating and even swimming holes. His condo is very clean and pleasant with a contemporary decor. I liked it a lot. The bus can pick you up down on the corner and take you around town. And there are plenty of bike rental places in the neighborhood too.
Ben was really accommodating. We were in town for F1 so we didn't hang out too much at the house but it was very convenient to a lot of things. He had good recommendations for things to do and restaurants as well.
Ben was a great guest. He communicated well before arriving, was friendly and self-sufficient while he was with us, and left the apartment in excellent condition. We highly recommend him and would be happy to have him as our guest again.
Ben was a last minute request and was very patient giving me the time I needed to get the Casita clean and tidy for him. He was an easy guest to host and is welcome back anytime!
Ben and traveling companion Lisa, were the action duo. They spent every minute exploring as much of Hawaii as possible. Nice to have such adventurous souls visit our islands.
I had but a few words with Ben during his stay, it seemed our schedules were just not matching up as I was fairly busy. But, the times we did see each other I was always looking forward to our next encounter. Maybe next time we will go for coffee and actually spend a few minutes chatting. I hope your stay was pleasant.
Ben was friendly and left the place looking great. My condo manager says he was polite and quiet. Will welcome him back when he's in town.
Ben was simply delightful throughout the process. He left our home in perfect condition and liaised with me every step of the way.
Thanks, Ben - we look forward to welcoming you again soon. All the best. Lorraine.
Excellent experience with Benjamin, a polite and friendly person, very clean and tidy - Ben is the perfect guest!
