I love fun, live-music, and the great outdoors. That is why I live in Austin, and why I want to share my amazing, downtown, South Austin, oh-so-close-to-everything apartment with you.
The guests we sent to stay at Kate's had a great time. The place was comfortable, quiet, and a convenient 15-min walk to the Austin Convention Centre. Everyone received a warm welcome from the hosts.
We came to Austin for a couple festivals during a super busy weekend, we encountered a slight problem (not the fault of our host Kate & Aaron), Our host were above and beyond helpful with trying to make sure our stay was 100% Amazing! they kept up on text, phone calls, and emails, they even offered to help us directly in resolving our situation! truly excellent host! the flat was walking distance to so much, but you could also take the bus by purchasing a 24hr bus pass at the low cost of $2! or walk over to see the Austin bats, experience the beautiful city by catching a bike cab! regular cabs are not that expensive either. Kate & Aaron's flat is cosy, spend the day lounging poolside with some lemonade, or walk a few more feet to the river and take a stroll, or maybe you wanna take a dip in Barton Springs! if you're into shopping, walk up Congress street.
For Vegans this place is amazing! you can walk from the flat to Willie Nelsons Burrito shop "Freebird" and get a huge burrito from a staff that is knowledgable about Veganism, or walk down the street to Thundercloud Subs and get a Vegan sub! our favorite was a place over on 1st and Mary called Bouldin Creek, this place is the best Vegan place we've eaten at in the south! huge selection of food to choose from, in house made Vegan BBQ tempeh tacos! in house made Rose Lemonade! Vegan blueberry pie and so on (we'll miss Bouldin Creek)!
Staying in this location was the ticket to making our 8 person holiday truly fun, memorable and amazing! Our whole group would recommend staying here.
Thank you Kate and Aaron for a wonderful holiday in a home away from home.

p.s. totally forgot they gave all of us shades for our eyes, so we walked Austin TX in style! lol...
This was my first Air BNB experience and I was very pleased with Kate and Aaron. Pre-arrival, the communication with Kate was excellent, she reached out to me before my trip, shared her phone number & her boyfriend's number in case I needed to get in touch.
Aaron met me to give me the keys, he gave me a tour and was friendly and welcoming. They left snacks out for us and beer for us to drink and a nice note on the refrigerator door.
They were happy to communicate with us throughout our stay and answer question about Austin or about the apartment.
I would highly recommend staying at Kate's place.
It was great staying at Kate's place! She was very easy to communicate with and was also very prompt. The apartment is very nice and quirky, and the 7 of us could stay quite comfortably. They'd even left us a six pack :) Its very close to downtown and we walked there 2-3 times. Its also right next to lady bird lake and offers great views. Its a good deal for the price they offered and we wouldn't hesitate to come and stay there again!
Me and some friends stayed at Kate's place over Halloween weekend. Kate was very easy to communicate with and answered all (100 of) my questions I had about her place and the surrounding entertainment! Her place is located in an awesome spot and we walked to 6th street both nights. South Congress and the food trucks are right around the corner too! The apartment is really cute and spacious and the check in/out is super easy! Wish I could've stayed in Austin longer than just the weekend but me & my friends had an awesome time! Thanks, Kate (& Aaron)!
Kate and Aaron were great. Everything from the location to the sense of welcome, down to the little design touches from two extremely creative people felt just right. We loved being so close to everything and also the feeling that we had a place to ourselves for the evenings. The place even comes with its own amazing Thai food truck a five minute walk away! Beat that!
This place was great. Host was excellent- communicated quickly and effectively. The place was clean, large, and was located very near to many "cool" places in Austin (south congress, downtown, town lake). Thanks so much for a great stay!
Kate and her boyfriend were the nicest and the friendliest guests. They were fun to talk to, and kept our place clean and pristine. We really loved having them over and would recommend them to any Airbnb host.
