I stayed at the flat for 4 weeks and it as a general good experience. Zak was very friendly and helpful, though he wasn't at the apartment, since he was renting his own room. He always answered my text messages and emails asap, and was clearly willing to make my stay as confortable as possible.
PROS: the location is very central, with lots of bars, restaurants, pharmacies and supermarkets around. It's very easy to get to Manhattan with the L train (only 3 stops till Union Square) and one can easily walk to Bedford Avenue, which is a great spot for some good food and shopping. The flat has a backyard, which is great to get some fresh air! Nora and Brain, two of the 3 other roommates were also very helpful, friendly and willing to answer all the questions I had. And the bed is a very good one!
CONS: the flat is very dirty, so if you're a clean freak, this is not a place for you. Nevertheless, you can do some cleaning yourself, as I did :-)
As so, I would say this is a great place for a short stay!
Zak, Charissa, David and Meg were an ABSOLUTE delight to host. We sometimes get a bit nervous having 4 in our cottage, but with this group--there were absolutely no worries. They cooked, they steam showered and never (seemed to have) left the cottage, and yet we could barely tell that they had even been here. We were sorry to see them go, and would welcome them back any time!
Zak was great. He took advantage of our suggestions for things to do around Austin. Was really communicative and very respectful of the space. A great guest that you are lucky to host. I hope I get to host him again.
Response from Zak:
Thanks, Hunter! Was a pleasure to stay there.
Zak was an ideal guest - pleasant, interesting, and communicative. Any host would be lucky to have him book their property. I hope he will find his way back to Austin.
Zak was a great guest. I enjoyed talking with him when he arrived. Everything was left clean and in great condition.
They are welcome back any time!
