I'm an Austinite who has lived downtown for ten years. I love to travel, but I also enjoy hosting a steady stream of friends and family.
Mark's place was just as advertised. It was clean and in a fantastic location!
Super location.....easy access to all downtown activities.
Secured and designated parking behind a gated area in the complex. Mark has a perfect set-up for visitors to Austin. Bed is a queen but it is very comfy! Loved it all!!!
Mark's flat was in the perfect location and was very comfortable. Checkin was easy and everything was as described.
What am amazing experience it was staying a Marks place! Amazing location, easy parking, super clean condo, very responsive host.
I highly recommend staying here if you are staying in Austin!
Enjoyed my stay. Mark was responsive and loved the value of it.
Mark was so great in communication and making sure we had everything we needed. I asked if there was an ice maker and he offered to come by and drop off a bag of ice. How nice and accommodating. The space was great for us three girls and we loved his music set up. The little building was so cute too. we had all the dishes and glasses we needed. we actually cooked in the place and found everything we needed there. the location was essential too. We walked to South Congress and to 6th street. So close to Raney street too. This place was clean and met all out expectations.
Cozy, clean, nicely furnished apartment in an unbeatable location downtown - perfect for a quick trip to Austin!
Bottom line: I would stay in mark's unit again. It was the most comfortable Airbnb bed that I have ever slept in. Apt is extremely well-located across the street from the convention center, and a short walk to hotels and restaurants, as well as to sixth street, which is Austin's seedy strip for bars and restaurants but with an aggressive homeless population similar to what I've seen in San Francisco and downtown Salt Lake City (on sixth street, not near the unit). Also near wanderlust yoga, which is an outstanding community amenity. Apartment is very small, but extremely well appointed: leather chair and sofa in the tiny living room/kitchen, with wood floors, very effective blinds, and a tiny granite counter with comfortable stools where I was able to get work done in comfort. There was a fairly big screen TV, which I did not use, but it further tells the story that this host wants to deliver a good experience, and he does. He was ultra-responsive and friendly during the sign-up process, and was extremely gracious in letting me check-in early --since I took an early flight from NY -- after he first checked with his caretaker. (Don't assume he can do this for you. Depends on many factors I'm sure.) When there was a little mix-up about what would be in the unit (probably because I could have read the unit description more carefully), Mark first texted me me where the stores where, ranked by quality!, and then offered to come into town and do the shopping himself. Since the stores were a block away, that offer was completely unnecessary, but shows the extent to which this host is getting it done for his guests. Mark also has a caretaker with whom I corresponded, and who also appears to be very friendly. Travelers should be aware that this is not a classic Airbnb experience. Mark's unit is an investment unit in a building with a lot of other investor units (by coincidence I stayed in the same building on my prior trip), so you are not going to meet your host and bond with him and learn tidbits about the city from a local. In addition, the building is three stories built around a courtyard with several steel staircases leading up to two levels of balconies over the courtyard. The doors to the apartments are reached from the balconies, so you will carry your luggage up one or two flights of stairs (in Mark's case, one). The windows of Mark's unit looks out over what I expected would be a fairly busy intersection along the balcony, and I was concerned about privacy, but hardly anyone ever walked by. I was awakened one night (out of two) by a group returning to the third floor, but in general it was quite quiet. All in all, a positive Airbnb experience and I'll look to return here if Mark will have me.
Apartment was easy to access and exactly as listed. The location is fantastic if you are in need of a place to stay near the convention center.
This place was in a perfect location! I felt so safe here because there were codes to get in the gated condo complex and my car was in a gated parking lot. Mark provided great recommendations on what to do in Austin, was super accommodating, and responded to any questions almost immediately. The place was very clean and was as pictured. I'd highly recommend this place--really, the location couldn't be any better!! Would definitely stay here again.
This Host is a Great Guest!!!
Friendly, comunicative, organized, etc...
If you are looking for a good guest you 've founded!
Thanks Mark for choosing my place!
Hope to see you again
