Steve and his apartment are both great. He met me when I arrived - gave me the grand tour, we chatted over a beer and he gave me the key. Great guy.
His place is just as advertised - clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. It's actually just a short walk from the legendary Broken Spoke honky tonk, if you're into the old-school twang thing.
I can't recommend Steve or his apartment more highly - a very good and affordable place to stay in South Austin.
This place was just what we needed for our trip to Austin. Steve was great and worked with us on our very late arrival. The Broken Spoke and Kerbey Cafe are both close by and walkable and the bus runs right up S. Lamar (and the Austin bus phone app is great for telling you when the next bus is coming and how to get places). It is a little far from downtown for walking (although we did walk it, it's approx. 3 miles to the river/Lady Bird Lake), but we grabbed a day bag and simply stayed out all day; plus, everything in Austin seems to be at least this spread out (we rode the bus at least this far from downtown in a couple different directions to get to things). Maybe it's everything in Texas...
The apartment was immaculate and welcoming and the TV a great way to put the feet up after walking all day (the Longhorn Network channel has an insane amount of UT sports programming, all shot with multiple camera and announcers). Thank so much, Steve, for helping make our weekend in Austin great!
Our experience was great! Steve gave us a ton of info on places to go/eat in Austin before we came which was really helpful. He was very easy to get a hold of him. His apartment was very comfortable. The location was great, too!
The place is what the pictures indicate -- just a very nice, clean, and organized apartment with a bedroom and comfortable living room.
Steve was really friendly and nice when we interacted, and even let me stay into the late afternoon because I needed to take a call until 4pm.
The neighborhood is a little quiet and far from downtown Austin (about $15-$20 cab ride downtown, depending where you are going), but it's actually 10 minutes walk from a couple of shopping centers if you want to get coffee, groceries, clothes, or food. Plus you can take the bus into town, which I did a couple of times.
This would be a really great place if you had a small group (3-4), and wanted to spend some chill time at home at night.
Would highly recommend renting a car, though, if you come to Austin, and especially if you stay here!
Steve was a welcoming and hospitable host. His apartment was clean, comfortable and extremely well-stocked; the washer and dryer were a terrific help, since we were traveling for a week with only carry-ons. The apartment was convenient to downtown, the airport and the Hill Country (with its wonderful wineries), and is within walking distance of Austin icon Torchy's Tacos.
Travelers with physical limitations should be aware that the apartment is on the third floor and there is no elevator. (In our case, we needed the exercise.)
Steve's place was exactly as advertised. Clean, cozy and well furnished/stocked. Steve was very attentive and responded quickly when I wrote to him.
Booked this badass Longhorns pad for a NYE. Great location. Close by downtown Austin. Thanks for the Christmas tree! Great spirits. Thanks S.
Steve was an excellent host. The place was clean and well kept and Steve made himself available to be contacted throughout the visit. Upon hearing of a planned visit to the UT campus, he even invited us to a tailgate party on the day of a Longhorn football game ... It was a fun time and an unexpected treat during the trip!
The visit was a very pleasant experience and would stay there again.
Very nice to stay in such a well equipped vacation rental. This is in fact the home of the owner which makes it both quite comfortable and a bit unusual. Steve was very gracious, welcoming and helpful. The experience was all that I had hoped for. Good location, quiet apartment and lots of comforts and amenities. Great for two people and ok for someone in the living room. I would stay here again.
Steve's a great guy and has a nice apartment conveniently located to nearby restaurants and the day/night bus. He checked in frequently to ensure all was well and that we had everything we needed.
