When we first arrived to East Austin we weren't sure what to expect... Xavier and JoAnn quickly blew our expectations out of the water. The amenities of their home are wonderful and welcoming but it is the two of them that made our experience memorable. Extremely kind-hearted individuals, we learned a lot about Austin from JoAnn and also Paris from Xavier! Their home is conveniently located to many food and drink places in both East Austin and downtown. I'll definitely come back next time I'm in town!
I only spent one night and left early so didn't meet JoAnne, but Xavier was so generous and welcoming. He had a tasty snack waiting when I arrived, offered to pick me up from the airport, and gave me a ride into town. The room is nicely appointed including an ironing board which I needed. Great hosts! Would definitely stay again.
Xavier was very nice, he offered me coffee each morning and lunch in the afternoon. He is very close to downtown Austin which makes his place ideal. The room was clean and comfortable.
My stay at Xavier & JoAnn's was my first airbnb stay and they were fantastic hosts! They offered to pick me up from the airport and also drove around the main sites in Austin to show me the general lay of the land.
The location was excellent. Located on a quiet residential street east of downtown, the house is close to cafes, food options, and bars in east downtown neighbourhood. (P.S. be sure to grab a breakfast taco from Cenote cafe nearby). I also made use of the bike provided and it was a very quick ride to the downtown area.
The house is charming and the room was comfortable and very clean. Xavier and JoAnn are very thoughtful and attentive hosts and they made the entire stay very pleasant.
Bonus: Xavier is a great cook and I was greeted with a welcome snack when I arrived at their house. I also got to taste Xavier's cooking a few more times during the stay.
Xavier was super friendly and helpful, and gave us a tour of downtown as soon as we arrived, which was extremely useful. Our room had a ton of useful items already prepared, and although we didn't use them because we had a rental car, the bikes seem like a great way to get around considering the house is pretty close to downtown.
I had a great time! They are very friendly, picked me up from the airport, offered me some food and were very helpful in regards to the area. Walking distance from the good part of downtown, too!
Xavier and Jo Anne are incredibly hospitable. It was like staying with friends. Although we didn't get to spend a lot of time, they very kindly picked us up from the airport so we were able to chat. The location of their house was very convenient to all the main points of interest. We walked to everywhere (but you can use their bikes). Definitely recommended.
Xavier and Jo Anne were incredible hosts. They picked me up from the airport, drove me to one of my appointments and were just all around wonderful.
The room was exactly as he photos, and maybe even a bit cozier :-) The house itself is in a quiet residential neighbourhood, but very close to all kinds of amenities and getting to downtown is very (website hidden) Anne and Xavier made a boring business trip very easy and way more fun!
Xavier and his wife JoAnn made my visit to Austin very pleasant and I felt very welcomed at and like in my own home… They are great host, you will get from them so much that not the best hotel can offer you!
They received me at the airport which is incredibly kind and cooked delicious appetiser as welcome and drinks as well as driving me around in the city.
The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable and the house is lovely in a nice area… Their house is very close to downtown.
I will definitely go back to their house if I return to Austin… I highly recommend to stay with them!
Thank you very much again Xavier and JoAnn
Xavier and Joann are two of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. It felt like I was staying with my cousins. They picked me up from the airport or from other places within minutes of requesting and insisted on dropping me off at the airport also. They have a wealth of local and global information. The house is beautiful and very comfortable . The kitchen and bathroom are very clean and well maintained . This was clearly a Superstay with a Superhost. They should be made the model hosts for all AirBNB hosts and perhaps have lessons even for all hoteliers .I wish them both the best in life .
