Laid-back guys from Austin who like travelling and helping others enjoy their travels.
We had a fantastic experience at Kevin and Bob's. The flat was extremely well prepared with a kitchen which provided everything anyone could hope for including back-up herbs and spices and great utensils to work with. The personal touches such as cold drinks waiting in the fridge and an invitation for guests to access the extensive home bar, were really first class and show that these guys know how important that sort of extra service is. The flat itself was amazing with a brilliant collection of interesting pieces to look at, great books, art and internet access. Comfort factor, ten out of ten with a sweet bed, beautiful linens and fluffy towels. The air-conditioning had been put on for us prior to arrival and was a very nice and thoughtful touch.The information about Austin, local eateries, inner-city travel and general points of interest was concise, up to date and relevant. I didn't see the guys until the day that I left due to our individual scheduling but had been in regular texting contact with Kevin who responded immediately. I can not rate this experience highly enough. It was my second airbnb booking and was so far superior to the first one that I had in another city, that it has effectively wiped that event (not a positive one) from memory. Thank you Kevin and Bob, very cool, very enjoyable, highly recommended and just basically perfect.
My friend and I spent 2 days at Kevin's treetop apartment and it was better than I expected. I only met Kevin briefly, but his various interests in the visual arts is reflected on every surface and in the plethora of books and objects that he generously shares with his guests. The sleeping porch has huge windows with screens so you can almost sit in the trees and feel the breeze The welcoming laid back atmosphere is genuine down to his three chickens, Lily, Mary and Penny, freely roaming around the yard. And the neighborhood is great for walks. There's much more I could say but I think its clear that I highly recommend staying at Kevin's place if you are planning a visit to Austin.
Great place to stay! Perfect location and Kevin was awesome!! Easy to communicate with and had a list of great places in the area to check out. First Airbnb experience,and enjoyed it so much more than pricey hotels that we normally stay in! And Star Seeds Cafe beats boring room service ANY day of the week! We never felt unsafe in the neighborhood, and we walked everywhere at all hours of the night.
Kevin and Bob were fabulous hosts - very accommodating to our tight schedule, full of good recommendations for places to eat and visit in the neighborhood and beyond, they even lent us their bicycles for a (website hidden) for the home, it is beautiful, well-decorated, and spacious. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Kevin was an excellent host, and his place was the perfect space to put up my dad for his month-long stay in Austin. Well communicated to bars and restaurants, grocery stores and the gym, the neighborhood was well-connected to all the desirable amenities but quiet enough to retreat to. The space was clean and had everything one could need. Kevin was also incredibly accommodating, helpful and communicative. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone looking to visit Austin, short- or long-term!
This flat offers you high value for money close to the city centre of Austin. The furniture is very charming. Kevin is a very friendly and helpfull host. In addition, it was possible to rent two bikes making the SXSW music festival a big success for us. We were able to attend one showcase every hour by cycling between the various venues.
Kevin's place is awesome. You really feel like you are staying in someone's home, but without any of the uncomfortable weirdness! We were in constant communication and the entire experience was a great pleasure.
Kevin's place is full of charm and conveniently located to all things great in Austin. A very warm & gracious host. Would definitely stay again.
Great place, very close to UT
I needed a place to stay for a little while before I relocated back home and emailed Kevin out of the blue about his duplex. He was very accommodating and worked with me on the time frame. When I arrived at the duplex I was blown away. Kevin's upstairs flat is beyond adorable. The place is perfectly stylish and stocked with anything you could need cooking wise. You can tell these people love to entertain!
All in all I give this place 5 stars. The duplex itself is beautiful, it is decorated to the nines. If you're an eclectic type or want to stay somewhere glowing with charm, this is the place. I was in love the moment I got up the steps. So cute.
The duplex is conveniently located within a few blocks of an amazing 24/7 grocery store and a great cafe. This place is close to downtown but doesn't feel too in the thick of things. Its a great alternative to a hotel and has far more character. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Kevin is an awesome guest!
Kevin and his partner were the most lovely guests!!
Kevin was a great guest and did the extra considerate things that were beyond expectations. Come back again!
I wasn't able to meet Kevin, but kept in contact with him about his arrival time. He was very clean and courteous. He also left valuable feedback for me to improve upon. He would be a pleasure to have again anytime!
Kevin was a very nice guest to have stay at our
Rental. Kept in contact with us before the eta.
It was our pleasure.
