A wonderful state at a very cute location. The host was really helpful when I arrived late he kindly provided dinner and breakfast. The whole house was scattered with useful essentials such as soaps, towels, tissues etc. The fidge was stocked with the usual stuff you need. The location was great too. The bus was easy to get into downtown or walkable in half an hour. The local cafe's, in Alden's Guidebook, were brilliant. Be sure to check out Magnolia! Also Barton Springs are in walking distance as well as the nice park. Wifi was amazingly fast too.
Alden is a fantastic host. He always goes the extra mile to provide the small things that make a trip more enjoyable. For example, if you don't like washing dishes, he'll provide disposables. If you don't want to take public transportation, he'll loan you a bicycle. And when I was staying at his place and I had a lot of work to do on the internet, Alden provided me with a nicely appointed computer so I could finish my work. Plus, his place is in a great location. I can literally walk to Austin's famous 6th Street, and I don't mean one of those "10 minute walks" you see on Airbnb that usually mean a 30 minute walk! He has super fast internet, HBO and Showtime, on-site parking, and a cozy yard with easy access to the highways. I definitely recommend him as a host.
