Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Convenient location, close to everything we needed and walkable to Zilker. Park concerts could be heard from the back patio! Great views. The home itself was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Anything we needed was provided. Kellie and Jay were wonderful to work with. We would very much like to return next year.

Could not have asked for a better experience. Good location in central Austin. The condo was very spacious. Gorgeous, private views. Very clean. Thank you so much Jay.

Having never been to Austin before, the Barton Springs/Zilker Park area was recommended to us by our son who moved to Austin last year. The Double View was in a great location! Although it seems like it could use a little upgrading, it was fine for us (my husband, myself, my daughter and her boyfriend). Kelly and Jay were so easy to work with and got back to you in a very timely fashion. We found that the grill on the deck didn't work and within 24 hours, there was a new grill. We really didn't spend too much time in the unit since there's too much to do in and around the city. Daily walks through Zilker Park were much needed after all the food we had. It was an easy walk to Barton Springs pool or to reserve Kayaks. Many places to grab something to eat along Barton Springs Road. We drove to some places like the LBJ library and Mount Bonnell...but it was just as convenient to use the ride sharing company "Fasten". I think the best barbecue I ever had (melt in your mouth) was at La Barbecue food truck. Had to wait about an hour in line but they had kegs of beer you could help yourself to while you waited. Favorite dinner spot was Moonshine...unbelievable food. Hit the usual spots to check them out. 6th Street at night (crazy); Congress Street (for boots from Allens boots, of course) and Rainey Street (good music and beer gardens). We did a lot more than this but you need to experience Austin for yourself.

Keep Austin Weird!!

Lights didn't work and place was dirty.

  • 3 of 5

I had truely looked forward to staying here. Was so disappointed. I did call Kelly and she came over with a maintenance man and got lights working she mopped the main floor. She went above and beyond. Outside looked bad like it needed a facelift. Just disappointed.

Great location and wonderful view, but the house needs some work for the average we paid a night.

  • 3 of 5

There were multiple light bulbs that needed to be changed. There was some maintenence on the house that needs to be done. Overall it was a nice stay.

Disappointing condo

  • 1 of 5

The owner was good to work with but the condo is in need of major cleaning and repairs. The Carpets need to be professionally cleaned or replaced and the kitchen and bathroom floors need refinishing and grout work cleaned. The kitchen cabinets were sticky and dirty. The disposal smelled bad and there was mildew in both bathrooms. Broken and missing doors (upstairs closet and laundry area). Three out of the four switches in upstairs bathroom did not work at all. Outside patios were filthy. Living room loveseat is torn and covered with an afghan. Other furnishings were stained and several broken chairs stashed in the closet. The outside of the building is peeling paint and the entry area was very dirty. We bought some cleaning supplies for the kitchen and bath since there were none so that we could feel better about using the kitchen and bath areas. I'm sorry I cannot recommend this listing at this point.

The location was good for accessing Zilcher Park and Barton Springs .

I've rented more than 20 times with VRBO/Homeaway and this was my first bad experience.

Owner's Response: Howdy Peg, I'm really sorry you didn't have a good experience at our property. I wish that we had known you weren't satisfied when you were actually here. My main housekeeper texted you upon arrival asking if everything was ok and she never heard back from you so we have to assume you're all settled in. Sometimes light bulbs go out and they can be replaced, in 5 minutes. Our office is right up the block. And any cleaning mistakes are easily rectified. We have staff on hand 24/7 to make sure you're happy and comfortable. But if we don't hear from you then there's nothing we can do. So when we read a review like this two weeks after you're departure we can only scratch our heads. We rely on guest feedback so we can not only provide you a good experience, but also future guests. I've checked with our current guests after reading this review to make sure they're happy and we've gotten nothing but glowing comments - so again, i'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay and had we known you weren't satisfied at the time of the stay we would have been able to take measures to insure your comfort. I'm sorry it didn't happen this time around. Best, Jay Reynolds
