Best place to stay in Austin! Quiet, comfortable, centrally located and easy access.
Full disclosure: I didn't stay in Benjamin's place personally but booked it for a friend coming into town. Benjamin was very fast in all his communications with me and helpful. My friend was very comfortable and enjoyed her stay.
The studio apartment was clean and beautiful! My boyfriend was hesitant and questioning why we didn't just get a hotel, but after walking up and meeting Ben and his family, and then walking into our little place he quickly changed his mind. There was coffee stocked for us in the morning and an array of bath products to use in the bathroom. On the bookcase was a list of places to visit or eat around the neighborhood, being from Austin we didn't have a use for it, but we went through the list nonetheless saying out loud "yes, that's a great place! Oh yeah Taco Deli should be the first one listed! Or we should go to the Springs while we are visiting!" We spent our night on the couch watching Netflix and unwinding. It was perfect!!!!
Since I go to Austin a lot for school and to visit I will definitely be renting this place again!
Lovely home and neighborhood, Ben and his family were gracious hosts and would go back there again!
Ben's studio apartment exceeded my expectations -- I got there a little early and his wife was more than happy to show me the place. It was incredibly clean and I felt very comfortable during my stay. I would definitely recommend Ben's place to anyone visiting Austin looking for convenience and comfort.
This was a great little apartment. We stayed there for a month and had an excellent stay. It is set up very well and has everything you need. It is in a nice quiet little neighborhood near grocery stores and bus lines. Ben was very helpful and helped us with everything we asked for.
Rented Ben's place for my parents for two stays over the holidays. Please see my first review for details. It worked out great for us, and I believe it would be a great option for just about anyone visiting Austin.
I rented Ben's wonderful one-room garage apt for my parents during their annual Christmas visit. Ben was very helpful during booking process, which was a unusually tricky for us since we had a gravely ill family member at the time. He also got in touch a couple of times to make sure things were satisfactory over the 10-day stay.
In addition to the info in his listing, I can tell you that the apt is in a super quiet and convenient location (visitors without a car can very easily take the local buses downtown or anywhere; see (website hidden)). It is close to the Shoal Creek Greenbelt for walking--you can go all the way to Lady Bird Lake if you're so inclined. It's just a few blocks to Austin restaurant favorites such as Kerbey Lane Cafe and Russell's Bistro, and a little farther to the Randall's grocery store and lovely Olive & June.
My parents found the accommodations very comfortable, Ben very nice, and they and I would be happy for them to stay there again next year.
Benjamin and his family (total 5 people) were awesome guests who stayed at my house for a few nights. They were easy-going, very considerate, clean and tidy. They're welcome to my home anytime and I'd recommend them as wonderful guests to any host.
