My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay in Austin and a huge contributing factor was the location of Ricardo's home. The neighborhood is quiet and charming but only a few streets over from funky SoCo with great food, shops, and music on every corner. We greatly appreciated the Smartwater and cups waiting for us in the room when we arrived and the separate entrance made the room feel like our own private bungalow.
Ricardo was an extremely gracious host. He made us feel welcomed and gave us tons of recommendations on what to do in Austin. The room and house were cleanly and felt like home the moment we stepped inside. Location could not be any better. You can walk to South Congress or just walk around the neighborhood and look at all the cool houses.
Of all of the places I have stayed using Airbnb (and there are a lot,) this has to be one of my favorites. Ricardo's sweet little house was exactly what we were looking for in so many ways. Great location, beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. Ricardo was a great host and communicated with us both before and during our trip. I was arriving in Austin on crutches with a broken foot and he made sure that I had everything I needed to have a safe and stress-free stay. He totally put us at ease as a host. Ricardo's house is tastefully decorated and extremely clean and neat. The bedroom was very comfortable and the shared bathroom was convenient. The sheets on the bed were incredibly soft and the mattress and pillows insured a great night's sleep. The location of this house could not have been better, just a couple of blocks from South Congress where we spent most of our time. It was really easy to get around on foot (well, one foot and two crutches) and still feel like we were in a quiet, secluded neighborhood. I am already considering my next trip to Austin and I definitely want to stay at Ricardo's little house again.
Ricardo provided great instructions and information to get me settled before he arrived home from work.
The house was great - just as described and very clean and relaxing.
The neighbourhood was quiet but just a short (maybe 6 minute) walk from bustling SoCo.
When I met with Ricardo he was a very relaxed guy, with plenty of recommendations on places to visit, eat and drink. He was a very informative, kind and courteous host, which made for a very memorable and fun stay.
Definitely a recommended stay.
Ricardo's home is a great, comfortable space. Great vibes, too. I was in town to research at UT and was happy to have the place as a cozy crash pad. Ricardo is extremely kind and helpful -- he has answers to any questions you might have. The location is a quick walk to vintage shopping (including tchotchkes galore at Uncommon Objects!) and a variety of restaurants along South Congress; and from there, it's an easy commute downtown. Highly recommended!
Ricardo was extremely friendly and welcoming. The place is so lovely! There were three of us staying for two nights and Ricardo gave us plenty of privacy but was conversational when we ran into one another. The location is walking district to all the fun on South Congress and a short drive to anywhere we wanted to go in the city. Would highly recommend this spot.
We loved staying at Ricardo's beautiful AirBnB! We felt very at home instantly, just like when we met Ricardo it felt like an instant friend was gained. We caught Austin on some rainy days, and ended up actually relaxing more at the house than anything…the best time we could have asked for I believe. Relaxing, beautiful, original and exceptionally organised home. And the best coffee we've had in a while! When can we move in?! Thanks for being such a genuinely nice host Ricardo! Until the next time. :D
Ricardo was everything you want in an AirBnb host. The room he provided was clean and very comfortable with a comfy bed. He even provided a bottle of water which I loved. It is a shared bathroom but its very clean and smells like lavender. The separate entrance made me feel better about not disturbing Ricardo if I came home late. He has put a posting on the wall in a picture frame of anything you might need to know including Wifi passwords and his recommendations on places to eat. He has good taste in food so you won't be disappointed! He was extremely helpful as it was my first time in Austin and I didn't really have a plan and places to go and things to see. He had some time off so he showed me a couple of spots that I never would have gone to if it weren't for a local. Its due to his generosity and helpfulness that I had the best trip to Austin that I could have possibly had. Thanks Ricardo, hope to see you again one day :)
The house is great, the room very cozy and confortable and Ricardo is a super host! I just came back from Austin and I had such a good experience that it was so hard to leave! Thanks so much for your hospitality!
I booked this for my daughter who was visiting me from Europe. This is what she wrote:
"Staying with Ricardo was like staying with a good friend. He is a superb host, giving you all the privacy you want but is also more than happy to show you around the coolest spots in his city...and even go running with you in the morning :D I had so much fun!
Regarding the apartment, I had my own entrance/lock and the whole place was very neat and clean. Additional kudos to the house's funky deco! I give this sweet little place & the host nothing but my best recommendations."
Thank you Ricardo!
What a great guest! It was a pleasure meeting and hosting Ricardo! Super nice, friendly and responsible. Communicated well and left the apartment clean and in perfect order. We highly recommend Ricardo to anyone looking to host a wonderful, delightful guest. A real pleasure!
