Four of us took Amtrak from Oklahoma City to Austin (via DFW) for the weekend and had the pleasure of staying in Krista's lovely downtown condo. Everything was fantastic!
We arrived and left at rather awkward times of day, so we used the self-check-in and self-check-out, which couldn't have been easier. The location is a very easy walk from the Amtrak station - quite convenient!
The area is great - very close to Whole Foods and tons of things to do within walking distance. Despite being in a bustling area of the city, the street itself is relatively quiet and the apartment is located on the top floor of the building which keeps street noise to a minimum. The other residents of the building were very friendly when we encountered them in the halls and elevators and gave us great suggestions on local places we might enjoy.
We found all of the beds and couches to be supremely comfortable, and Krista's condo is truly set-up to be a home-away-from-home. My friends that stayed in the upstairs loft loved the USB ports installed in the walls, and I enjoyed being able to record a movie on the DVR while we were out to watch when we got back. We didn't have time to hit the pool, but it was beautiful and clean!
Perfect location for walking and driving. Great bars, restaurants, shops (even Whole Foods) right around the corner. And easy access to freeways when we ventured out. The beds are super comfortable and the apartment was nice and clean. Convenient gated parking was a plus. There's a sweet roof top deck right down the hall from the apartment too. Check in/out times were very accommodating. I'd definitely stay here again. Thanks Krista and Bryn!
Brian and I loved Krista's apt! It was centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere. When we needed a car, we just called Uber. The apt was just like the pictures! Clean and so cute! The bed is comfy and the shower is hot and has great water pressure. The towels are soft and plenty of them. Little soaps and shampoos too. Even though 90% of the time we just slept there, it was very homey and felt great to come home to at the end of a long day. BTW, there was a pantry full of cooking necessities if you need it. Also a washer. The Wi-fi worked great too. Big screen TV as well. FYI - the open bedroom is up these cool circular winding stairs. If you can't do the stairs, there is a sofa/futon in the office/2nd bedroom just outside the bathroom. We had no problem with the stairs. Whole Foods is 1 block away as well. There is a pool (too cold in January), the rooftop view is nice too. Check in and out was flexible with our schedule and Krista made it so easy. She gave us all kinds of suggestions where to go. All the places were great!!! Loved Dueling Piano Bar, Friends, Rainey Street, South Congress Cafe (and the neighborhood), Continental Club, Saxon Pub - we saw Bob Schneider! :) Thank you for a great stay Krista! We would definitely come back!
Great apt, great location, great host!
Had a great stay here! Wonderful apartment, and Krista was very responsive and easy to get a hold of. She made it easy for us even though we were arriving late at night, and gave us great recommendations on what to do!
Krista's condo is the perfect spot for a weekend trip to Austin. It's just close enough to the center of downtown that you can walk to bars, restaurants, etc. but just outside of the major busy area, so you don't have to worry about noise, crowds, etc. And having a dedicated parking space in Austin is super handy. Krista was an excellent host - check-in was simple and she really made me feel at home. The beds were very comfortable, and the living area was a great place to hangout at the end of a long day. My friends and I enjoyed playing the fun selection of board games she has on hand. Another major bonus: the condo is a 2 minute walk from the running trails that circle Town Lake, the best running spot in Austin. I'll definitely be back to stay at Krista's place next time I am in Austin.
This was my first airbnb! Great place, great stay. Very quiet and convenient to downtown. It was super clean and comfortable. I arrived late night and left early morning for a work trip ... key exchange couldn't have been easier. Krista was easy to deal with and responsive. I will rebook and tell my colleagues.
Krista and Bryn were amazing hosts and their condo/loft couldn't have been any more perfect.
Krista contacted us before we arrived and offered some suggestions and recommendations for things to do, places to eat and offering her help should we need it.
Immediately upon landing in Austin, Krista and Bryn were available and met us directly in front of the building. They guided us into the private gated parking, a bonus in downtown Austin, and showed us into their unit. The unit was incredibly clean and well stocked with extra linens, stocked fridge, extra soaps and toiletries, etc. It was super comfortable... Huge L-shaped sofa, large flat screen TV, great kitchen with granite and plenty of cooking supplies, wifi and everything we needed. There is also a fabulous rooftop deck overlooking downtown.
The property couldn't have fit our needs any better and was located magnificently in downtown Austin, within a short walking distance of the whole downtown area and literally right across the street from the mecca of Whole Foods. There are tons of restaurants nearby, though we still found ourselves walking into Whole Foods several times to grab some groceries, getting coffee and drinks at their juice bar, grabbing a late night made-to-order sushi, etc.
This is a place I will surely stay at again whenever I visit Austin.
The place was great. Very comfy unit in a very accessible part of town. Felt right at home and having garage access was a big plus. The bed was super comfortable. Easy walk to Whole Foods (2 minutes) and lots of the bars/restaurants and food trucks. Krista was a great communicator and may the entire process very easy. Provided dining suggestions as well.
Will definitely stay here on my next trip to Austin.
Amazing trip and host! The loft was clean, in a great location, and had everything that was expected.
Krista was great with communication and was very helpful suggesting restaurants and activities to do while visiting. I would highly recommend the loft to anyone.
