We loved our stay at Rob's place in Austin! My boyfriend and I were in town for ACL for four nights and Rob's place was a perfect home base. He was a wonderful host, super friendly and helpful, and he responded immediately to all of my many questions. His restaurant recommendations for the area were a big help, and we ended up visiting him on our last night at the restaurant where he bartends, a very cool place.
The apartment is in a modern complex on a pretty quiet street, but very close to South Congress and with plenty of good restaurants nearby, plus a grocery store and a CVS and other conveniences in walking distance. I'd probably choose to rent a car or a bike if I were visiting to really explore Austin, but since we were mainly going back and forth to and from the festival each day, ubers worked just fine for us. We didn't have time to take advantage of the community pool but it's a nice option to have, as well as a communal barbecue/seating area and laundry machines (no change machine though -- bring quarters!).
We did take advantage of Rob's great sound system to listen to music, and his impressively-equipped kitchen (specifically his Vitamix blender, coffee maker and coffee grinder) -- all that was great to have available. (We also used a tiny bit of his liquor, though we also left him a couple of nearly-full bottles of liquor to compensate!) It was also super convenient to have access to the desktop computer and internet.
All in all, Rob's place was perfect for us... comfortable, convenient, a good size for 1 or 2 people, stocked with the kitchen equipment, close to South Congress and other conveniences. My boyfriend and I can't wait to go back to Austin without ACL so we can spend more time exploring the city, and we'd be happy to stay at Rob's place again!
Rob stayed at my place and everything was fine. They left the apartment in perfect condition and I'd be happy to have them over again.
