We stayed for two nights at a nice clean room. We had access to bathroom and kitchen. The hosts were very nice and we had very good overall experience.
Great host! Loved the tea and the conversation !
This location is very convenient to anyone who is doing business in Steiner Ranch area!
Very very comfortable accommodations. A separate entrance into the bathroom makes this a large room feel particularly private and "yours" during the stay. I got to the place very late one night, and had to leave very early the next morning, and it was very easy to come and go without bothering anyone.
If you are on the west side of town in the Steiner Ranch Area for business, then this is a great location for you! This location is also central to a recreational area - with lots of great biking and hiking trails
I enjoyed a great conversation with John and his wife over dinner one evening. They are very nice, very friendly.
John & his wife were very kind & hospitable hosts. We only stayed 1 night but they made sure to share with us where to see a few sights & catch a beautiful sunset.
We had a great time staying at John's place. They are terrific hosts. The place is a bit small, but it was perfect for our one night stay. Would highly recommend!!
John and Shilpa were great hosts. The room was comfortable, with beautiful bed linens and a great projector/tv for watching television shows or movies. They also helped with restaurant recommendations and directions for getting around. I would gladly stay again when I next need a room in Austin.
John and Shilpa are great hosts and have lots of good recommendations!! We share a great time at their home!
Lake Travis is beautiful to relax, swim, and do some trekking. The private reserves near the lake are very nice! Beautiful sightseeing everywhere!
Thanks so much again, for the PERFECT airbnb experience, John and Shilpa! As of August, 2013 our hosts had not been in Austin long, and my sis and I were their first guests! I had no problem booking without seeing any reviews first because - idk – it just felt right. John and Shilpa reply to questions very promptly, professionally and kindly, always saying "If there's anything you need, let me know", and they mean it! (She let my sister borrow a belt for Pete’s sake!!) They are super nice and friendly, and have a beautiful place - Secure gated community, awesome pool, modern and clean home, (you must take your shoes off at the front door – think I’ll start that in my home as well ☺ ) and only 6 minutes from the Oasis on Lake Travis where we partied at our mini HS reunion on Friday night. It was a short cab ride away, and the cost for “Austin cab” is reasonable, but the wait time is 30-45 minutes soooo lesson learned there. Call ahead! All we were looking for was an inexpensive clean place to sleep, close to the restaurant so we could afford to drink and not drive, plus maybe swim a little, and it was perfect. Coming in about midnight, we tried to quietly walk (or should I say stumble ha ha) up the stairs, but they were up! I shouldn’t have been shocked. They’re young. ☺ Both sis and I fell asleep instantly, in their VERY comfy organic queen bed! (hmmm, maybe I don’t need the TV to have a sleep timer on it after all.) ;) The only CONS, (and that's just IMO, they had no problem with it whatsoever) was #1) the fact that I had to basically walk through their bedroom (in the living room?) to get to my private bedroom, #2) that the bathroom was shared, (again my problem, not theirs – I get up in the middle of the night, and feel the need to flush, but didn’t want to wake them – so didn’t. Embarrassing!), #3) No coffee pot. That’s not really a “con”. Just bring your own if you NEED caffeine. ;) They offered us Chai Tea….Love them! and #4) Parking is not easy (except that they let you “block” their garage and park down the street if you complain about it even a little (so again, this shouldn’t even be listed as a “con”)
I hesitated writing this review, only for the fact that next time I want to stay here, the dates won’t be available! Everyone will want to book this place!
I hope to stay here every time I come to Austin, If John and Shilpa will have us back. I think they will. We were no trouble at all. ;) XOXO
John and Shilpa came to stay with us for a day due to their move from Florida. They are so friendly and a joy to host. We really connected even though the stay was short. Hope that they will enjoy living here in Austin and are always welcome to stay with us or visit us anytime!
