We're a relaxed, respectful, and all-around wonderful two human beings that love life, Austin, and making sure our guests leave happy and more Austintacious than when they arrived.
Mark and Kiva were great hosts. Very friendly and easy to talk to, they really made us feel welcomed. They gave us great tips for getting around, restaurants etc. and even made arrangements to pick us up and drop us off at the airport. The bus stop is 4 blocks away so getting around the city was very easy. We wish them all the best and hope to see them sometime in the future.
Mark and Kiva were amazing hosts! This was my first experience with AirBNB and it couldn't have gone any better. They were very accommodating made us feel right at home. We had educated discussions about TED talks, politics, and world travel.
If you are planning on going to Austin City Limits (or any other event around Zilker park) their location is amazing! The combination was outstanding and I'd gladly book a trip with them again.
Very nice host. Quiet , gentle , warm , and enjoy ....Mark and Kiva are the best host that you need, they are for you like friend . I enjoy dance blues with them.
I come frome France, it` s a good experience for me .
Warm and inviting hosts. They had very nice accommodations and I couldn't have asked for more.
Kiva and Marc were wonderful hosts. We stayed with them during SXSW and their place acted as a retreat from the intensity of the crowds and events. Their home was inviting, clean and in a beautiful neighbourhood. They were both attentive and laid back and offered us the opportunity to join them for conversation or do our own thing. Marc and Kiva were very generous with their time and offered suggestions for the best breakfast joint, best blues bar and other local attractions. I would highly recommend staying with them and look forward to visiting Austin again sometime soon.
Mark and Kiva are wonderful, loving people with a great home in a really great, walkable neighborhood close to everything.
If you are considering renting a room from these friends, whether for short term or long term, you will not go wrong. They are sincere, honest, committed people - committed to their work ,the environment, their friends and in general and living their lives with purpose and integrity. They are also a very fun couple to be with, as well as interested in the events of the world around them and how they can make a positive change.
I've know Mark since 2006 when we met in Nicaragua. We bonded quickly and i was impressed with his business acumen as well as pursuit of a fun, engaging life. He is a great person to spend time with, as is his girlfriend Kiva. She is a professional dancer - without an attitude and loves being with people and making friends - and she'll introduce you to a diet that will add years to your life.
They are a great couple. Whether you are at their home for a night or three months, it will be a warm and memorable experience. Fred
