Guestbook comments from the manager
This place was great for my weekend trip to Austin! My friends and I had a great time. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We actually rented a car, but this location was very close to a lot of the places we wanted to visit, including South Congress. Brooke was very helpful and responsive when we had last minute questions about getting to the house, etc.

Reviewer Comments:
We had a wonderful stay at the Kenwood Casita. Our goal was to be located near our daughter, whom we were visiting. This location was ideal for us. When we arrived, things were freshly cleaned. The appointments were fashionable and comfortable. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. We appreciated the coffee, sugar and creamer provided for us. The wireless was necessary for us to answer some work emails, that was also working fine. The TV offered necessary channels, especially to view the NCAA championship basketball games. Everything was in working order. We had a car which we parked in the gated parking. The slope was a little tricky for the model of car we had, just takes a patient driver. Brooke was accomodating with our dates of stay and was available by phone/text to answer questions promptly. We suggested some extension cords and additional mirrors in the bedrooms near outlets, since the bathroom is small, making it a little tight for hairdrying and makeup application. Brooke listened to our suggestion and has probably made this modification for future guests already. Our deposit was returned promptly upon our return home. This was our first experience with VRBO and we would do it again. If we make return trips to Austin we would consider this rental again.
For tourists, we recommend a day trip (or a couple of days) to San Antonio. We used the Mega Bus which picked up at the UT campus. Also, the BBQ at Franklins IS WORTH THE WAIT. We arrived around 8:30 am on a beautiful weather day and made friends in line. We got our brisket and ribs around 12:30, just in time for lunch at our daughter's apartment. In the evenings, we had fun at Rainey Street and enjoyed sausage at Banger's. The piano bar on 6th street is a blast!

We had a great time the week we stayed here. The place was perfect and the neighborhood was awesome. We walked to SoCo for diner and I accessed the Town Lake hike and bike trail every morning to run. The management was friendly and quick to respond when we arrived early check in day and allowed us to get in a few hours early. Would stay here again and again.

Nice place

Brooke was very accommodating and pleasant in all of our interactions. The place is a cozy little duplex entered from one of the nicest alleys in Austin. Quiet and private.
A good place to base out of!
Thanks!

Great apartment for a family.

  • 5 of 5
My family needed a place to stay while our house was getting some work done. This apartment is just what we needed. The apartment was minutes from my sons' school. It also had everything we needed including a desk that we all used. The kitchen had all the necessities to cook and feed a family of four with sometimes even family guests. The dining table has leaves that makes it possible to sit 8. Because it is pet friendly, our 12 year old dog was able to stay with us. We were very lucky to find this place. It made our stay away from home more enjoyable than I could have expected.

Excellent place to stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations were great for our family. We were concerned about staying at a hotel with our 11 month old, and this rental worked out perfectly for our needs. The location is convenient to get on and off the highway as well as being close to downtown. The only issue we had was with the mattresses. They are a little thin and very firm. By the time we were done exploring the area each day, we were so exhausted that it hardly mattered. Other then that, we had great communication with the owner Brooke and she very helpful with our stay. I would absolutely rent there again and would recommend the unit to someone looking to stay in area.
