Tom and Amber's home is cosy, clean and comfortable. In a great location, it was very close to Barton Springs and Barton Springs pool - so great for swimming and kayaking! We enjoyed the company of Dewey their cat, who was very friendly and came to visit us in our room. They also have another cat Zoe, who is a little grumpy and doesn't like guests, so best to stay away from her. Thanks for a very comfortable stay and great time in Austin Tom!
Tom and Amber had a very cozy and clean apartment. We were very happy how accommodating they were, especially because we drove from the Midwest. They had great tips about relocation and places to eat. Loved their kitties as well! Highly recommend their place.
The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. They gave us a tour when we arrived, and had equipped the guestroom and guest bathroom with everything you would need (full bedding, toiletries, towels, etc.) When we decided to go to Rainey Street, they were able to tell us how far, where to park, and what places we would be interested in. The parking was free and right outside the apartment building as well. It was around a 10-12 minute drive from downtown and South Congress.
Couldn't recommend Amber and Tom's place highly enough! We spent a fantastic few days in Austin and found the space to be lovely and clean, well-situated, and comfortable. The proximity to Barton Springs was awesome, especially as the weather was so hot, and it was easy to catch the bus downtown too. Amber and Tom are fantastic and helpful hosts and we really enjoyed our stay. Don't hesitate to book here.
Tom and Amber were very nice people. We visited with them our first night that we stayed in their apartment. The apartment was very comfortable and their cats were very nice also.
Tom and Amber's home is in the perfect location. I took a jog down to Barton Springs Pool, and stopped for tacos at Taco Deli on the way back to the apartment. Both amazing spots! The space is beautifully decorated and very clean. One of the cats if very friendly. They had to be away while I was there, though even in their absence I felt welcome in their home. I would definitely recommend their home, and would stay there again.
Tom and Amber are fantastic people whose airbnb listing should be on the short-list of all travellers coming into Austin, TX. Utilising public transport, Barton Springs is relatively central and located in a beautiful part of the city. The number 30 bus takes you all the way from down-town to a 3 minute walk from Tom and Amber's apartment. It is extremely easy to navigate your way around.
As far as the room goes, it was as per the pictures. Very comfortable and extremely quiet. Having your own bathroom was also a plus.
In short, a very easy stay with great people with whom I would stay with again tomorrow. Cheers Adam
It was a pleasure staying with Tom and Amber in their home in Austin, Texas. The place was clean, quiet, and supplied with fresh towels and linens.
Getting around was convenient. I was in town for the 2014 Paleo f(x) conference (April 11 - 13) that was being held at the Palmer Events Center. The venue was a 15-minute bus ride away, but I ended up cutting through Zilker Park on foot and passing by the Barton Springs Pool - every morning. It took about an hour to get to the venue, but I didn't mind; the walk was refreshing, and there was plenty of greenery and wildlife to enjoy along the way.
Also, for North American car2go members, the apartment is within the Austin home area, so you'll be able to use your membership to access the local fleet of SmartCars. During my stay, I couldn’t use any of the cars that were available along the streets as the new car2go regional access plan (which extends access to Canadian members), did not take effect until May 5.
I didn’t get a chance to chat with Tom and Amber until the last night of my stay, but I’m glad I did. After finding out that Franklin’s was closed Mondays, I was still hankering for some Texas barbecue. So when Tom suggested The Salt Lick location at the Austin airport, I made a mental note to grab a brisket-and-pulled-pork taco the following morning (at 5:30am), before my flight!
This was my first time in Austin and my first time using Airbnb. Overall, I was quite happy with the experience.
Great hosts! Great location! Tom even let me go to a CrossFit class with him! Had a great time and I'd definitely stay with them again!
Tom and Amber were very welcoming. The room was comfortable and their location convenient to downtown Austin. Would recommend it to anyone tired of hotels and motels!
I was a pleasure to host Tom and Amber here! They are polite, interested, respectful and happy! They left the room very clean and organized! Thank you!!!
Very nice guests, Amber and Tom are easy and friendly. They are a lovely couple, polite, accurate and respectful of the house. Despite of the bad weather they tried to discover Chianti region and also relaxed themselves in our home.
They also host people in their house in Austin and they like to have the opportunity to share houses with other people. They left the room clean and tidy. We highly recommend them to the airbnb community. We hope to have the chance to meet them again in Austin.
Very nice and friendly people.
Collaborative to advise the arrival time. I suggest them
