The host canceled this reservation 64 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We made a mistake regarding the availability of our home and cancelled the reservation within 1 hour of it being made so as to ensure that the guest had as much time as possible to find an alternative accommodation.
Scott was an amazing host. Should I get another opportunity to visit Austin, I would hope to stay in his home again. Scott was accommodating and communicative with our group's check in and check out times. The location of the house was ideal being so close to Barton Springs Pool. The pictures are accurate and the neighborhood is perfect for a relaxing weekend.
Scott and I had great communication prior to my stay.
He was very accommodating for my needs and offered many amenities for children too.
The house was spacious and clean. We loved the backyard with gorgeous trees.
The location was good for SXSW, if you don't mind a commute every day. We had a car and the drive took around 15 minutes each way.
The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use.
The living area was very comfy and we watched Netflix every night to wind down after the festival.
The master room was comfy with ensuite. We didn't use the other rooms of the house but they were clean and accommodating.
I would recommend Scott's house to any family or large group wanting housing near Zilker / Barton Springs.
The surrounding area is very quiet at night with good supermarkets and restaurants nearby too.
Thanks Scott and family for a great stay.
Our stay at the Hoopman residence exceeded expectations. Scott was very helpful with coordination pieces before and during the trip. The home is very welcoming and offers plenty of space to enjoy your vacation. I recommend staying here if you have the opportunity. The location was well suited for Austin City Limits at Zilker Park.
Overall, our group had a great stay! Scott was a wonderful host and was very accommodating. We had 5 people staying at his place and there was plenty of room for all! Scott was great to coordinate with prior to our trip and made sure we had everything we needed. For our trip to SXSW his place was perfect and we hope to stay there again next year!
This house was the perfect location for our trip to ACL! The home was beautiful and a short walk to Zilker park. Scott was an excellent host and his family definitely went the extra mile to make their home welcoming and comfortable! From booking to check out, we had a great experience!
To being with, Scott was great to correspond with. He was always prompt and very helpful. We arrived at the house without problems, and it was very clean and more beautiful than the pictures. They had graciously left a bottle of champagne to welcome us.
The house is very large and could comfortably sleep 10 people without using the air mattresses. The common spaces and the outside patio are amazing for large groups, as there is plenty of seating and it has a very warm and open feel. The living room is well laid out, and the kitchen is very modern and well-stocked for all of your cooking needs. The outside areas felt quite private, as they are on a corner lot and their lawn is very large. It was perfect for enjoying a late spring evening. Location was also ideal, being very close to Barton Springs and downtown. We opted to drive everywhere, but you could easily bike to many locations. We took a taxi to downtown, and it was $12 (very affordable, in my opinion). The neighborhood is really adorable (watch out for the "Otter Crossing: Drive Slow!" handmade signs around) and very safe.
Definitely a great place to stay and an amazing deal! I looked for days on every rental website and was so relieved to find this house. The only thing to be aware of is that this is their house, not a vacation rental home. Therefore, there will be clothes in the closet, food in the fridge, etc. However, it was immaculate and there was plenty of room for all of our stuff, so it's really not a con at all. It also means that the house has a lot of personality, from their stunning photography from their world adventures as well as their gorgeous children.
Scott and Alexia are amazing hosts with a beautiful home. We stayed in their 3 BR Austin house for the duration of SXSW 2012 and they went above and beyond to accomodate us.
They were very good at communicating with us before, during and after our stay in Austin to make sure we had everything we needed. Prior to our arrival, they provided us with a list of recommended local restaurants, grocery stores and other attractions in the area. They offered us their bicycles to cruise to downtown. They even left us champagne and chocolates as a warm welcome!
Scott and Alexia are everything you could hope for on your first Airbnb experience! They have my highest recommendation.
5 STARS!! Scott and his family shared their beautiful home with us on ACL weekend. The photos really don't do it justice. They made every effort to communicate with us before our stay, ensuring that all of our needs were taken care of. Upon arrival, the house was clean, common areas were very conducive to hanging out, and all the sleeping areas were comfortable. They left us tasty snacks and drinks in the fridge. The location is great; only about a mile walk to Zilker Park. Everyone in our group loved this place and we are already talking about renting again if available in the future!
