I am a chef, gardener, Mama of 3 adult children and love Austin! If you have any questions about my listing, please feel free to reach out to me.
Staying here was a great experience. Gina and Ted were very accommodating. We stayed for 7 days and they checked in to see if we needed anything, but it wasn't necessary because they think of so much before you even arrive. Awesome place to stay.
Ken and Gina are great hosts. They are plugged into the music and restaurant scene in Austin and happy to share advice on where the most fun is to be has. They are unbelievably generous, Ken even gave us a ride to the airport when cabs were hard to come by during SCSW.
The accommodations are great - clean, and plenty of space for three of us on a guys weekend.
Lovely accommodation in a great location. Clean and plenty of towels - thank you. We stayed two nights in Austin on the weekend of the F1 GP. We are now tending to choose apartment style accommodation when we travel over a hotel room. Off street parking here too which was great. Would recommend this apartment.

The place was perfect for us! Great location- right near 6th St and Lamar. The place was very thoughtfully stocked with lots of things you might need. Gina was very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay.
Gina's place was lovely. Great location, Gina was easy to coordinate with, it had off street parking. I'd definitely stay there again!
Extremely pleasant and comfortable. Comfy beds and clean. Great stay.
Gina place was very clean and within good walking distance to local hotspots. Gina was very helpful with tips and navigation around Austin. We'd love to come back!
Gina was a great host. The apartment was exactly what we were expecting, very clean and all linen was provided. It is set in an incredibly nice part of Austin. The location is ideal, for anyone looking to explore the city itself as it is close enough that you are never more than a 10 minute cab ride from most things. Overall huegly enjoyed our stay. So thanks very much.
Good, clean, as advertised.
Loved my stay at "The Empty Nest" during SXSWi this year. Gina and Ken were warm and welcoming and everything about the place is great. The location (easy 20-30 min walk to downtown or a quick cab or Car2Go) was convenient, the price was very reasonable, the rooms were spacious, and really couldn't ask for more. Thanks!
It was a pleasure to have Gina and his family in our apartment. We'll be happy to meet again them in Sorrento, Italy!!! Highly recommended guests!!
