Laurie was great. The apartment was very convenient, close to food trucks, UT campus, and walkable to 6th St. Loved our stay. The place was clean. Easy check-in and check-out. Parking permit was provided. Thanks, Laurie! :)
Wonderful stay at Laurie's place. It's cute and tidy and just perfect. The location is great, right near campus and not far from all the fun. We were able to rent bikes a few blocks away and parking at the apartment complex was easy. There's a convenient store right across the street where it's easy to grab water, beer, or any thing you may have forgotten. Will definitely return. Thank you!
Cedar Ranch apartments is located in a bustling area with easy access to a supermarket and taxi cabs if needed. Laurie's place was clean, orderly and met my needs for a short stay in Austin. It is perfect if you are travelling alone or with one other person.
Laurie was friendly and always accommodating. I had forgotten my iphone charger and she graciously left me hers to use for the whole weekend.
Perfect for a stop-over visit to UT.
Laurie's apartment was a great place to stay. It is a much better alternative to a hotel and a great value. It is basically on UT campus so it's easy to walk everywhere or catch the bus that stops right outside. We also felt very safe walking around at night and never had any issue finding parking spots, etc. I would definitely recommend this as a place for 1-2 people to stay (plus pets!) while in Austin.
This was our first time renting with Airbnb, and it was great! The apartment was exactly as described, very comfortable, and had everything we needed. There was a bus route right outside and many others in close walking distance, and the walk downtown wasn't bad either. Thanks Laurie!
Great place. The neighbourhood is very nice and safe. Downtown is very near and there's a lot of places to visit from there.
The apartment is as advertised -- clean, comfortable and quiet in a great location. I would definitely stay there again as a home-away-from-home. Laurie was very responsive to any issues (e.g., the cable was initially out but fixed in less than 15 minutes).
I stayed at Laurie's while I was attending a workshop at UT Austin: I couldn't have found a better accommodation! Laurie's apartment is right in the middle of student life, it is an easy and pleasant walk to campus, and you have plenty of facilities (convenience store, ATM, restaurants and bars) just around the corner. In addition to that, there is a bus stop for a connection to downtown and for the campus shuttle, which if you want takes you further to the bus to the airport, which is a 1-dollar ride!
The apartment is very clean and tidy, perfectly organized for a most pleasant stay, internet worked seamlessly, I had a well equipped desk to work on my (email hidden) I can only recommend this accommodation further, especially for those who need to stay some days on campus.
Laurie has always answered timely, she gave me all the information I needed and confirmed me once again the reservation some days in advance, so that I could travel from Europe with no worries. It was my fist airbnb experience and I am grateful that Laurie trusted me even if I couldn't provide previous feedback.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to stay in Laurie's place while I was in town for an academic conference. The apartment was clean and cute with a lot of character, very comfortable, and conveniently located. It was so nice to have a working kitchen to make our own food as I have several diet restrictions. Her neighbors, which I only saw infrequently, were very nice and well mannered and even offered suggestions for food and activities. I am highly sensitive to noise and smells and I was very pleased with my experience. Considering its location near UT it is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. There were bird sounds throughout the day (I especially liked the doves) and crickets in the evening. The air was fresh and the temperature was perfect, although it was good to have the AC for the heat of the day. Walking trails along the river are easy to access just a few blocks away. Laurie was easy to communicate with and graciously answered my questions, especially appreciated since this was my first time with AirBNB. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a pleasant stay in a great town.
I'm afraid poor Laurie arrived just when our kids were out of school and the holidays were kicking in. The house was madness with the joy of Christmas around the corner: kids playing all the time, friends visiting constantly, even a holiday party on Christmas Even. Lesson learned: if you are looking for a quiet time, please stay away from our place during the holidays.
Response from Laurie:
Thanks for the good natured response. Lesson learned on my part: there is no getting work done around the holidays!
Laurie has been a very nice guest and I would love to host her any time again.
