Great location, immaculate rental.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This rental was the perfect choice for my four-night stay in Austin. My priorities in choosing this rental were location, cleanliness and comfort, as well as high-speed internet access. Those needs were satisfied. I was able to walk to grocery, specialty grocery and pharmacy. The proximity to great local restaurants was excellent, too. Internet access was fast and worked perfectly. The apartment was immaculate: the bathroom spotless; the kitchen charming and perfectly functional for my needs. With all the great restaurants in the area, I did not actually cook, but the fact that it had a gas stove would have made cooking a good experience.

My transaction with vacationcakerentals went smoothly, and management was very helpful. There was nothing I would want to change about the place or my experience there, and I will absolutely consider this same rental, next visit.

BLST really is the Best!

This little, quaint 1/1 was the perfect temporary place. I stayed in BLST for 5 weeks, during my transition to relocating to Austin from another state. I rented through VacationCakes, and from the moment of my inquiry, Ric was fantastic to deal with! Ric was professional, knowledgeable, and very quick to respond to any correspondence I made, during the entire rental process and during my stay. Ric and the owner, Kristen, went above and beyond hospitality during my stay, even periodically checking on me via email and phone calls to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. If something was lacking (and this only occurred twice during my stay, and for minor items), it was responded to immediately, and resolved within a couple hours. Kristen even checked with me to make sure she was not disturbing me while she worked in the space below the apt. (she was not) Now that is service with a smile! BLST is small, but it was the perfect size for me and my black lab (they are also very pet friendly - always a plus in my book:), it was very clean, had all the comforts and amenities of home, and was very conveniently located. I truly, could not have asked for better hospitality, or a better experience than BLST and VacationCakes. Thank you Ric and Kristen for making my transition to Austin so pleasant, and for providing such a comfortable place to call home while I settled in to a new city!

Great Stay!

I don't remember the exact dates of my visits, so the date above may not be accurate. I stayed there once with my husband and once with a girlfriend. The listing description was spot on! We found the property to be squeaky clean and obviously well-cared for. Going down the list to the right, the owner provided stellar service. Not only would I recommend this property to a friend/relative, I HAVE. We appreciated being close to relatives and friends, as well as good restaurants, many attractions, like UT and places to see/hear live music, AND a Walgreen's and a cool, funky corner store with an outstanding wine selection as well as many other great things (like chocolate)! But it was best to have a cozy, quiet retreat when desired or needed!

You Have A Wonderful Home

  • Submitted: Nov 30, 2012

I appreciate the opportunity to stay at your home away from home. It was a great experience. It was so comfortable and pleasant; not to mention close to some shops and restaurants.

The pleasant, relaxing sounds from the white noise was so comforting, it helped me sleep through the night.

I will come back. I also highly recommend it to anyone who goes to Austin.

BLST is a perfect way to escape and still have easy access to almost anything you'll want!

In addition to our available taxi cabs, the captial metro bus & UT shuttle both stop 30' from your home & can take you almost anywhere. Also, if you have a bike, the peddler is 0.5 miles away.

Northloop district - .8 miles, for our fellow foodies, for drinks, books, vintage/thrift & gift shopping. It's all here. Foodies, try foreign & domestic, tigress pub or drink well. Shoppers, buy the likes of dolce & gabbana (lightly worn) at big bertha's paradise, then stop by big top and buy a novelty gift! Epoch coffee is one block further down.

Duval center - .5 miles, restaurants, cafés, groceries & more. Grab some coffee & morning pastries at quack's or dolce vita, lunch at julio's, and dinner at one of the nice options here.

University of Texas - 1.8 miles (25 minute walk)

UT stadium - 2 miles (30 minute walk)

UT intramural fields - .9 miles (15 minute walk)

The Drag - 2.4 miles (university shopping district). Shop all day, then end the evening with some live music at hole in the wall!

Downtown Austin - 2.8 miles straight down red river st.

With the likes of places like vino-vino, Hole In The Wall, Draught House Pub, komé sushi, Your Mom's Burger Bar, House Pizzeria, Meuller park & the Meuller food court, one might argue that 'north is the new south' of Central Austin. You might have to drive a bit to get to Zilker Park...But, we've got Mt. Bonnell on our side!

Also, not all visits are for fun and games. If you need to be near:

- Dell Children's Hospital: 1.7 miles (northeast bound)

- St. David's Hospital: 1.9 miles (south bound)

- Brackenridge Hospital: 3.2 miles (south bound)

Notes:
Guests must be able to get upstairs, as this is an upstairs house. The Best Little Snore House In Texas is sister to Avenue D-light. If you're in a group that would like to stay close together (wedding parties, family reunions, etc.), please ask. Do keep in mind, however, that we absolutely do not supply 'party houses'. See our Rental Policies at http://vacationcake.com We will consider dogs only, for responsible dog owners (Sorry, cat owners! Too many allergies to cats) - with a $50 hold and adherence to our policies per http://vacationcake.com. Keep in mind that Shipe Park is only two blocks away, because there's not much to say about the tiny front porch.
