Young married couple residing in Austin, TX.
Feel free to send a message if you have any questions (we usually reply within 24 hours).
I went to Austin to do research and so did not expect to enjoy my stay as much as I did! Abe and Ange kindly showed me everything Austin has to offer and took me to some brilliant restaurants as well as places to shop. The room was comfortable, nicely decorated and filled with lots of little extras such as snacks and toiletries! The house itself is in an excellent location with a bus stop just down the street that takes you directly into town. I took the TU bus as I was studying on campus and therefore travelled for free. Abe and Ange made me feel at home, included me in their evenings out and introduced me to their friends which made my stay more than just a research trip but a fantastic experience I will never forget. Austin is an amazing city with lots of things to see and do, I cannot wait to go back in the future and stay with Abe and Ange again. Thank you both for a great trip and sharing your home with me.
This is a great private place. Clean and a very nicely designed private room. The room has tea/coffee machine/fridge etc.
Since I did not have a car I was dependent on buses.
This was not at all a problem. Bus connections are great and are 24h. You are in downtown in 15-20 minutes.
Abe and Ange were also very helpful and nice. They picked me up from the airport and back. I can really recommend staying with Abe and Ange
Abe and Ange are the best hosts you could ever ask for! I stayed at their wonderful apartment with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. This was our first time in Austin, TX. Abe and Ange picked us up at the airport, took us back to the airport when we left (it was a very early flight!) and shared tons of recommendations about places to go and things to do in Austin. They were super friendly and nice. The place is very clean and conveniently located (it was easy to go anywhere on the bus and taxis were also cheap). We hang out with them at SXSW and had great conversations over tea after our long days of going around town. They always had water, coffee, tea and healthy snacks for us. They are great hosts and we hope to go back to Austin soon!
Abe and Ange provided wonderful accomodations in their home. The amenities were like a classic European B&B and they went above and beyond--bottles of water and a snack basket, a coffee maker with coffee and tea options, a stocked desk--all in the room. They also had any toiletry you may need in the bathroom. The space had a great modern decor combined with the cozy comfortness of staying at a friend's house. Certainly recommended.
Abe and Ange were PHENOMENAL hosts. The room was well appointed - better than described in their post. The room was clean, well furnished, and in a great community with two outdoor pools and a hot tub. Our hosts had several types of snacks in the room for our enjoyment. The private bathroom had toiletries in case we forgot something.
Abe and Ange themselves were extremely welcoming and pleasant. They gave us great advice about restaurants in Austin, and even drove us to the airport.
My stay was great! Super easy to get downtown on the bus.
We really enjoyed out stay in Austin. We arrived at the airport late and Abe was willing to come pick us up. The room was nice and clean with lots of attention to small details (drinks, snacks, toiletries). We didn't get to interact with Abe and Ange much as we were out all day. The bus is a short walk with quick access to downtown. Overall very comfortable experience.
Had a great stay, thanks for the hospitality!
Many good things to note:
-Abe and Ange kindly stocked the place with every toiletry you would need, which was great if you forgot something.
-Room and bathroom were very clean!
-Abe made an awesome apple pie, which he shared with us. :)
-Abe kindly picked us up at the airport and helped us out with a ride in a pinch. We took taxis and buses the rest of the time- it was about $13-15 to the airport or downtown. There is a bus stop a 5 min walk away that goes straight downtown, but be warned that there were a few dodgy characters on the bus, so probably best to stick to the daytime.
-The apt complex has a hot tub, which was nice after a long day walking around.
Only con: Abe was an hour late to pick us up at the airport, but admittedly, there was construction going on.
We had a great stay at Abe & Ange. We loved Austin and they definetly helped making that happen. We enjoyed hanging out with them at their place and at night in Austin and were sad to leave them and their cat Ralfi :). The room/place itself is very good: clean, quiet and a private bathroom and the appartement itself is safe (gated) and close to downtown. Defenitely recommand this place!
Abe and Angie were gracious and friendly hosts. The room is very quiet and very clean . The bed was comfortable.
In addition, they provide transportation to and from the airport which precludes the need for a rental car. We then used the bus system which was very convenient and close to their condo and very economical...only $2.00 for a 24 hour pass. We even used it at night when buses are less frequent but not a problem as the neighborhood is safe and the Cap Metro system has a good online scheduling system to minimize wait times.
Abe and Angie go above and beyond providing coffee, snacks, and toiletries. Truly a great find in Austin. We highly recommend!
Abe , Ange and friends were very good guests. They also rent out to guests in Austin, Texas so the apartment was well respected and clean after they left. They can come again.
This room is great, clean, has all the storage space you need for a temporary stay. You get your own restroom and shower, equipped with towels, hand towels, toiletries and a toothbrush holder! I have to add that both the room and restroom you use are impeccably clean.
Extremely hospitable hosts, will do anything to keep you comfortable.
