I'm a freelance web designer and musician. Sylvia, my lovely wife and co-owner, works in the tech industry. We're a quiet, professional couple and we dig rock 'n' roll, baseball, and our dog, Calvin.
This (email hidden) to stay. It is in a wonderful neighborhood close to everything and minutes from downtown. Don and Sylvia were warm hosts that made us feel very welcome. Their home and accommodations were beautiful, luxurious and clean. I would recommend this stay again and again. We hope to stay there again in the future.
I stayed with Don and Sylvia for SXSW this year. Spacious accommodations, comfy bed, clean bathroom and gracious hosts! All in all it was was a wonderful stay in a lovely home, would definitely recommend!
Don & Sylvia are the hosts that define the best that AirBnB has to offer! I had such a wonderful time staying with them. Their house, and the room I stayed in, is beautiful, well-maintained, comfortable, and frankly should be featured in Architectural Digest. They went out of their way to ensure I had what I needed throughout my stay. I plan on using them every time I am in Austin and will recommend them to everyone I know.
This reservation was a one-night extension of the previous reservation. See earlier reviews for this property; my opinions there are the same -- everyting was primo!
I'm adding a separate review here simply to note the ease with which such extensions are made in Airbnb. I had alerted my host of my possible extension, and he knew such was likely. Accomplising the reservation and payment was just a matter of a few mouse clicks, just as making the original reservation was!
My personal tip: make your Airbnb reservation for the ~shortest~ duration you are confident of. That way, you avoid the hassle and cost of cancellation of a night or two that you turn out not to need. Adding additional nights is a breeze.
Stayed here three weeks before, and this was a second visit, based on our good experience with the first visit. Everything was clean, efficient, quiet, and comfy. Calvin the dog seemed to remember that I know all the good places to scratch. When we visit our children in the future (they occupy very small apartments), Don and Sylvia's place is at the top of our list when we check for accommodations.
Very nice hosts, everything was as advertised. I couldn't have asked for a better first Airbnb experience! Don even gave me a ride to the convention center one morning for my work. A+ all around.
Don and Sylvia have provided a quiet, comfortable, and reasonably priced accommodation, especially suited for those who need something south of the river in Austin.The decor and maintenance of the property is excellent. Their dog Calvin is sweet tempered and quiet. When we visit Austin in the future, this is where we will land.
Don & Sylvia were wonderful hosts and (email hidden)lvin's wagging tail made me feel right at home! The bedroom was cozy and the bed was VERY comfortable. I had a great time in Austin and would definitely stay with them again. I really appreciated their hospitality!
Don and Sylvia are such friendly hosts. They gave us great recommendations on Austin's attraction. Their home is beautiful and I would definitely come back in the future.
It was wonderful meeting Sylvia and I knew right away that my apartment was in good hands. Her lovely energy was still lingering when I got back a few days later. Home tidy as ever and she had replaced everything she'd used. Thank you so much Sylvia!
