The Zilker Festival Suite was perfect for us. It is between Zilker Park and SoCo, and most importantly near our son. It is the right size for a couple, in a very quiet neighborhood that is easily accessible to downtown. The bed is good, the suite is clean, the shower is small, but all that we needed. And the host is kind and gracious. This is our first experience with airbnb, and it's a 5 star.
Our stay at the Zilker Guesthouse was absolutely amazing. Daniel is a fantastic host, he is a real gem! Wonderfully sweet, he had flowers for us when we arrived, and different treats during our stay; one day we came back to find fruit salad in our fridge, another he brought us some bread budding he had just made. The house itself is extremely comfortable, with all you need for cooking and hanging out. We spent way more time at home that I would have imagined, and it was totally worth it! His dogs are incredibly sweet too, and anytime I needed an instant smile, I would go have them shower me with love. I'm sure if you're not a dog person, though, you would hardly even see them. I absolutely recommend this place, and we will certainly be back soon.
The Zilker festival suite was perfect for our quick weekend getaway with our 2 month old baby. The place is close to Lamar blvd where there are tons of places to eat and see. The Zilker park is perfect for picnics and also there are plenty of museums to visit. The place is clean and have good space for 2 adults. The murphy bed is surprisingly comfortable as well. The bathroom is spacious enough with good water pressure. Daniel has been a great host especially with us booking the place in short notice. He gave us a tour of the place and how to use some of the amenities. He also made sure we have the basics that we for our little one, which is a nice touch. His place is peaceful and safe. We would definitely book this place again in the future.
sweet space, clean, private, quiet. daniel was an accommodating host. great location. i would definitely stay there again.
Daniel and his daschunds were as friendly as can be during our stay. Additionally, the South Austin location was perfect -- we were close enough to events and activities, but not in the middle of it.
Thank you for your hospitality.
Our stay in the Zilker Festival Suite was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Daniel was a very friendly, welcoming, and kind host who was very communicative and always ready to answer any questions or quick to accommodate requests we had. The room & bathroom were very generous in size and clean, so we were very comfortable as a party of 4. Along with other amenities like the super fast wireless, microwave, fridge/freezer, and cable TV, it was a very relaxing place to chill out from the SXSW madness. The Zilker neighborhood is awesome full of character and a short walk to other cool areas like Bouldin Creek. With a close-ish walk to the 3 and 338, it was also relatively easy getting around and to downtown. Overall, I would definitely stay here for any future Austin trips! Thanks Daniel!
Daniel was extremely flexible- my wife and I were delayed and did not arrive until very late in the evening, and it was no problem for Daniel. The suite was private, and comfortable. Daniel has done a lot of work to make what once was a carport into a beautiful bedroom. The bathroom is a work of art, and we had no problems whatsoever. Sadly, the Zilker kite festival was cancelled. Had It been nicer outside, we could've walked to zilker park. Daniel provided clean towels, sheets, a comfy bed, free wifi, TV, fruits, yogurt, coffee, and pretty much anything we could've needed! It is a great place for a couple to stay, for a few nights or a whole week! Make sure and drive to Bouldin Creek Cafe, it's a mile or so away and has the best coffee, get a Lavender Latte!
Daniel's space was very accommodating. The place was conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood near lots of restaurants and a giant park. Not too far from downtown either, just a 10 minute bus ride.
He was a great host too. He saved us a pamphlet on the kite festival and offered to get us some things for other baby before we even arrived. Once there, he checked in on us from time to time to see if there was anything we needed.
The actual room was much better than the hotel I stayed at last time in Austin. It had plenty of space, a mini fridge, washer and dryer, all the things you would expect.
We're already planning to book again next time we are in Austin.
Nice and clean room. fantastic location close to Zilker Park, great and eclectic cafe, juice bar and restaurants. Daniel was a lovely host.
Daniel's place is great! I booked very last minute and didn't check in until 11pm. He was very accommodating. The room met all of my expectations. Most important to me is location, and this place is in a great neighborhood in South/central Austin; literally close to everything. You won't be disappointed.
