Great Location. Great Price. Attentive Owner.
We were looking for a nice, clean, comfortable place to rent for our recent weekend trip to Austin and what a gem we found!
You simply won't find a better price for such a great location. We rented bikes and were able to bike to Whole Foods, downtown, bike around the lake, etc. And although the studio was close to downtown, it was in a residential area, so it was quaint and quiet! The unit is behind a cute bungalow, but it's VERY private. We were able to open all of the blinds and still feel like we had our privacy.
The unit was clean and comfortable and stocked with everything that we needed...coffee to grind, sparkling water, lots of towels, sunscreen, shampoo and conditioner...AND...Shiner Bock! Thanks Andy!
The only downside that I could find was that the water pressure seemed low and the water didn't get really, really hot. It wasn't terrible...just not as hot as I like it.
The only suggestion that I can think of would be to have some sort of manual on how to work the TV. There was a note on the fridge about which button to push, but I couldn't get it working. I know had I called Andy, he would've helped right away, but I only wanted to watch it once and it was early in the a.m., so I just let it go.
Here are some things that we did and enjoyed:
Bike rentals with Austin Bike Tours and Rentals (they deliver the bikes to you)
Bruch at Fonda San Miguel: OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Dinner at Barley Swine: Amazing, though expensive.
Dinner at Truluck: Amazing, though expensive. Great steaks and king crab. HINT: All drinks and apps are 1/2 price during their happy hour!
Breakfast at Elizabeth Street Café: Yummy!
Drinks at South Congress Café: Amazing drinks, food looked good too.
Comedy show at Esther's Follies: Run, don't walk to this show. It's that funny.
East Side Show Room: Incredible bar on the east side of 6th. It looks like an old speakeasy with great bartenders that craft the most amazing cocktails. When we were there, a Russian band was playing...complete with accordion!
John Mueller's BBQ: OH MY GOD YUM! Go here instead of Franklin. Much shorter line.
Uchiko: Expensive, but delish! We went for the sake social, which is like a happy hour. They have $3 sake and a bunch of small items for much cheaper than their regular menu.
Whole Foods flagship store: It really was fun just looking around. Huge store.
Burnside: Bar on 6th street. Cool atmosphere. Reasonable drinks.
