Disciplined, reliable and and always on time!
Petra is quick to reply which came in handy couple times. The condo is stocked of all you need to be on vacation but still enjoy the comforts of home. She even has spices and wine glasses :) The condo looks amazing and very clean and super fresh. The bed was very comfortable (memory foam mattress). Couple things to note: we are coldies and prefer to use throws when cuddling on the couch vs heaters so if you are like us you might want to pack an extra throw blanket and bring your own toiletries (which we always do anyways). Overall enjoyed our stay and would be staying here again :) thank you Petra!
We were four professional women from different parts of the country sharing lodging Th-Mon during a nearby health practitioner conference. We were very grateful to have the extra space, amenities and cost-savings of Petra's condo versus the conference hotel.
We were so busy through the entire day and into the evening that we didn't have much time to really take in all the wonderfulness of the condo, but we were grateful to have a fridge for leftovers and a stove for tea. Echoing others, that master bedroom mattress is COMFY, and I was glad to see it had an organic cover.
I was very excited to have a jacuzzi, and I used it a couple times. Heads-up: make sure the wall-switch and pump power button are turned off before you start filling, or the jets will spray. And, in case it hasn't been used in a while, you might want to first fill with cold water and run the jets a bit to clear them out. I think that's par for the course with any jacuzzi that doesn't see frequent use.
The little desk/office nook is nice, too. I was able to use that to study one morning while a roomie took a conference call in one bedroom and another roomie slept in the other bedroom.
The condo is in a nice little development that is both close to I-35 and nestled in sort of a woodsy, peaceful valley setting. It's near a main drag, and a Walgreens is within walking distance in case you didn't pack toiletries. It felt like a pretty safe area to me. I actually took the Car2Go from the airport's "Parking Spot," parked it at The Domain/Esperanza parking strip (which is the only official parking area north of the Car2Go Home Area), and walked about three miles to the condo after dark, near midnight. It was a lovely walk in balmy 60-degree weather (I'd just come from -30 degrees in Minnesota January), and I even saw a doe and a buck with a rack walking through the nearby college's parking lot. Not sure if that kind of thing is for everybody, but it was a great way for me to shake off the flight and get some exercise before some long days of sitting in conference. :-)
Communication with Petra was prompt and clear both prior to and during our stay. We really appreciated her hospitality and generosity. The flexible check-in/check-out time was also helpful, since we were coming from different places and arriving at different times.
We could have not asked for a more convenient location. Not more than 15 mintues from anything. The house has everything you need and the beds are beyond comfortable.
When my family and I first arrived at Petra's home, we were very impressed with the interior design and that everything was clean. The place is fairly new, and there is a 2-car garage attached to it. She left clear instructions and information on the bulletin board, which was very helpful. We made sure to help her clean up the place, and left it the way we found it because the home is too beautiful! Petra was very easy to communicate with, and a great host for our short weekend stay in Austin. I would highly recommend her place!
We needed a rental for my parents visiting from out of state and after quick communication from Petra, we sealed the deal and were excited to find a place they could feel at home at. Not only was it totally PERFECT, the added little things like chocolates and a fresh clean smell really made it feel welcome. It is decorated elegantly and has every small thing in the kitchen you could use! The house was spotless and exceptional. We most definitely will come back again when it's needed! Thank you, Petra :-)
beautiful place to stay. All the comforts of home were there. I now wonder why I stayed at hotels in Austin! Petra was very friendly and approachable, and responded to texts immediately. We will definitely be staying here again if it is available!
Petra was a breeze to communicate with and I would gladly stay at her place again.
Great experience. New house with lot of amenities, excellent neighborhood. If you are in group larger than 2 this is good choice for you. Petra is also fantastic host. She organized everything, and responded to every our message in matter of minute. Would definitely recommend this place and Petra.
Petra's condo was awesome!!!!! Super clean, super comfortable! The beds were magnificent!!!! I would recommend it to anyone!!!
My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay here. We needed a temporary home while we organized our relocation to Austin and Petra's place worked out perfectly. From the moment we contacted her till the day we were checking out she was very prompt, polite and helpful in her replies. The home was in a great location for us, new to the Austin area, as it was an easy and direct commute to downtown, as well as being located near many shopping plazas. It was abosultely immaculate, with items like towels and sheets thoughfully left out for us, and we had everything we needed to cook dinners. I also appreciated the spaciousness and the nice workspace on the second floor, as I had to work during our stay. Overall we were very comfortable and found it a great introduction to Austin. Thank you, Petra!
