I was brought up on "The Golden Rule", so, I am providing the level of authenticity and "extras" that I would expect in Lifestyle Travel. There IS a difference.
A Centaur born in the year of the Rabbit, I've had WAY too much fun in my life!
Every Superhost has their own style, but they've all reached key hospitality goals.

Jake met us on arrival and took our breath away with the hospitality arrangements he made for us, perfectly detailed on the basis of just a few email exchanges.
Jake was incredibly flexible and hospitable. I've never had a better renting experience. The place was beautiful and I would stay again in a heartbeat.
I booked Jake's rental space same-day, and he was very nice and responded immediately. His home was spotless, and I would love to stay here again for a longer trip. I highly recommend this spot!
Jake made us feel right at home...right from the very start! Delicious breakfast bread and a bottle of (one of our favorites) wine was awaiting us upon arrival. The mod decor and "funky-cool" pool area was as promised...really cool! Jake provided us with everything we could have needed...from cooking spray to dental floss. Thanks Jake for the fabulous accommodations!
Our host, Jake, made us feel welcome before we even arrived. He emailed us to ask for our beverage preferences so he could properly stock the fridge. Upon arrival, there was a freshly baked loaf of cranberry orange bread waiting for us. The Mod Pad is fun and funky, decorated with original furniture and art from the 60's. The property is well kept and we enjoyed playing in the pool. Jake's two dogs, Rusty and Boy, were very friendly. Jake is a beekeeper and allowed us to sample some of the fantastic honey. Highly recommend.
Jake is awesome! The place is beautiful and he was so kind. He went out of his way to help us and make sure we had a good stay. If I ever come back to Austin I will definitely be coming here again!
Just awesome! Jake and Kelly were great hosts, the mod pad was very retro-fabulous, down to the last detail. Great coffee, all amenities, there was even a cake waiting for us. While there, we listened to 60s and 70s music to really set the mood. Thanks guys for making it a memorable experience!
Ditto on the stay extension!
This was a repeat visit for me to these groovy dogs. Felt like home this time! Unseasonably cold weather made the pool look that more tempting. (I understand Jake can heat it for guests.) I did a bit of telecommuting this trip as was amply served by the wifi connection. And I got to sample some home-grown (grown?) honey! Thanks again, Jake!
And you put the honey to good use! Thanks for the alcohol exploration!
Jake's place was as great as promised ...and more. Though a fifteen -minute drive from the center of Austin, it was easy to reach this annex apartment to Jake's house. It was filled with fabulous modernist furniture and Jake stocked the frig with Italian sodas,milk, juice , eggs and seemingly endless offerings of Keurig coffees. He also welcomed us with a delicious homemade fruit bread and a bottle of wine on the kitchen counter. From the Meyer's products to the notebook with restaurant recommendations/maps/guides, Jake thought of every detail. I'm a long-time, experienced Airbnb user and Jake's hospitality and thoughtfulness were extraordinary. You can tell he takes pride in his place and takes his Airbnb hosting duties seriously. Though the apartment is an annex to his house and he has a couple of dogs, the place was quiet and Jake was very unobtrusive and respectful of our privacy. For those who would sacrifice in-town convenience for unique accommodations and spaciousness, then I highly recommend Jake's lovely place.
These guys are great! Jake and his partner Kelly are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and their hospitality knows no bounds. Both of these super sweet, laid back gentlemen are always at the ready to make sure their guests feel comfortable and at home…plus, walking into their house is like taking a trip back to a fashionable design showroom of the 50s or 60s! Beautiful! For a weekend getaway or a place to call “home base” for even a month or more, I couldn’t recommend either of them (or the property) more highly! Even the dogs are great! (Hi Bear and Boy, Aunt Cheryl misses you!)
Jake and his partner have exquisite style, without the attitude. Every square inch of their place is impeccably designed with true mid-century classics. Wait! What am I saying? They're my competition! I take it all back. ;)
