Arif and Maryam were great hosts! They made my boyfriend and I feel very welcomed and at home. They have the sweetest two dogs that were quiet and well behaved. Their home was lovely. The location was great. They are located about a 30 minute walk from downtown and near the local bus stop. I would defiantly stay again!
Very nice and clean house in a great neighborhood. Arif and Maryam are very welcoming and friendly. 5/5 stars, would definitely stay again!
Staying with Arif and Maryam encapsulated everything you could want from an airbnb experience. The house itself was gorgeous and conveniently located a short walk from the soco area. The room and bath were lovely and clean, and the verandah out the back of the house was brilliant, we ate our breakfast there every morning surrounded by trees. The two dogs were super friendly and never aggressive. However, the best thing about staying here would have to be Arif and Maryam. They were so friendly, helped us out with any questions we had, gave great suggestions for things to do, and shared some beers and chats with us. What a lovely couple! My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. I would highly recommend staying with them if you're in Austin.
Arif and Maryam were great. Very knowledgeable about the city and offered up a lot of great things to see and do. Their house was great. In a quiet neighborhood but a short walk to SoCo and also to downtown/East 6th/East Austin areas if you don't mind walking (or a short cab ride).
We had a wonderful time staying at Arif and Maryam's place. The room and bathroom were lovely, the bed very comfortable, and the neighborhood very quiet, yet we were just walking distance to Stacey Park (and wonderful Stacey Pool) as well as South Congress Avenue, with its restaurants and unusual shops. Arif and Maryam were great hosts, and we'll be back!
Arif and Maryam were lovely. But the real starts of the house are Roman and Kaiser, always a friendly bark to say welcome home and then, after a little love, happy to go on their way. Arif and Maryam have a lovely home! and the location could not be better! I am grateful for the experience. I think it perfect for one person. Clean and comfortable.
The location, hosts and housing were all great.
Maryam and Arif are great hosts who were really accomodating to my trip. They’re good people to talk with and make you feel at home; heck, I even got a load of laundry in during my stay. Arif also can help out with any recommendations for food. I consider myself a “foodie” in the SF/BayArea and his tastes matched with what I was in pursuit for.
The room is very neat/tidy (as is their whole house) and you have your own private space (queen bed, own bathroom/shower, TV, internet, etc.) Really couldn’t ask for more for someone who just needs a place to stay while exploring Austin. The house is also neatly laid out to relax in. The living room has a nice sound system with old-school records playing, there’s a back patio area that’s screened off from bugs, and they’ve got two dogs - dogs are always awesome! They get excited and bark when you come home because they miss you, but once you’re inside, they’re all calm.
The location cannot be beat if you’re looking to explore the South Congress area, which is really popular now, and has so many options for eating, coffee, hipster window shopping - all within a 10-15 min walking distance. If you have a car and need to get to the freeway, it’s really close as well. There’s also a nice park a block away (Stacy Park) which has a famous pool called Big Stacy Pool that’s popular in the warm times. For those who want to do a little longer of a run, it’s within distance of running to the Colorado River and running along the Butler Trail along the water with the masses. Despite being adjacent to all this awesome-ness, it’s very quiet there at night, so you can also get a great night’s sleep to recharge for your next adventure.
Definitely recommend staying there and getting your SoCo on: South Congress Cafe, Jo’s Coffee, Continental Club, Homeslice Pizza, Magnolia Cafe….I could keep going, but you get the point.
Arif and Maryam were very friendly, kind, and accomodating. They were able to give great suggestions of places to go around Austin. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The house is very homey and charming and it was really fantastic having a private bathroom attached to the room. Beatiful house and surrounding area. Their two dogs, Roman and Kaiser, are super sweet and friendly! It was an easy walk down to get food and look at shops. Overall, we had a great time!
I found the room comfortable, clean and well-maintained. It has a private bath that is also clean and well-maintained. The room and the house were charmingly decorated. Arif and Maryam made me feel welcome and also gave me my privacy.
I especially loved their dogs. They were adorable and very friendly. However, the dogs do bark at noises sometimes during the day. I NEVER heard the dogs bark at night.
The location can not be beat. It is two blocks from South Congress Street where all the great shops and restaurants are. I just loved getting out and walking around the neighborhood.
I recommend this rental.
Maryam and Arif were lovely hosts - super friendly and really helpful when we needed tips on the city. Comfy room too and two adorable dogs!
Wonderful guests! The apartment was perfect when they left and communication was really easy during the stay. You are welcome back anytime!
Arif and Maryam were excellent guests in Flamingo, and we appreciate their staying with us.
Arif & Maryam were a continuation of great guests to my place. Communication was great and they left our place in great condition. I love to check in on my guests to make sure all is ok upon arrival. They said they were happy and all was good and they seemed to enjoy the rest of their stay! Looking forward to their return some day!
Such a beautiful couple. Perfect guests. We loved having you stay.
