Guestbook comments from the owner

Adorable place, beautiful setting, and very well-appointed. The only downside is there happened to be a lot of construction-y activities going on outside while we were there, so it was not exactly a serene and peaceful experience each morning and throughout the day but I'm sure that's not the norm and it won't stop us from booking it again when we come back to Austin. The condo is within minutes of downtown, and most importantly for us, South Congress and 6th Street (wonderful restaurants and boutique shopping). Favorite places we found to eat included Vespaio on South Congress and Clark's Oyster Bar on 6th (as well as its mother restaurant, Perla, on South Congress). We also had some of the best middle-eastern food I've ever eaten at the food truck, Abo Youssef (delivered to the condo via Grubhub.com). And don't miss Amy's Ice Cream on South Congress--to die for, and they're open late. The Continental Club on S. Congress was our go-to music venue for this trip. (Yes, you can find pretty much everything on South Congress!). Everyone came in on different days, so there was a lot of driving back and forth to the airport, which was a snap--15 minutes, on average.

Quiet with great running, yet close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed being able to cook Thanksgiving dinner here. The kitchen is well-appointed with just about everything needed to cook with. The decor is comforting and everything is clean and well taken care of. Being on Lady Bird Lake allowed for scenic walks and runs around the lake and one day we rented bikes. We will have to return for kayaking, which we never got around to doing.

It would be possible to have a quiet stay here and never explore Austin, but it is also just minutes from downtown and South Congress, where there are many good restaurants. We enjoyed the city as well.

Overall, a great stay and we would return.

Perfect location in a city with everything

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean property located on the river. The property has everything one could need from coffeemaker to washing machine and dryer.

The area has many things to offer including a nice boardwalk/riverside trail for a walk, run of cycle. It is a short walk to some fabulous food trucks offering everything from Churros to Korean/Mexican food combinations. Across the street is a great pizza, some coffee and a 7-11. There is a good sports bar on the corner should you like that sort of spot. There is a bus stop a short walk that can get you to down town in less than 10 minute for only $1.25 one way.

Would definitely book again if the situation arises.

Terrific location

Lovely flat close to everything you'd want to do/see in Austin, a short drive to SOCO, 6th St, UT, and the airport. Fully equipped and waiting for you...

Convenient, accessible, spacious, really well-kept and clean - just easy. Everything we were looking for on a business trip. The layout makes it easy to share with friends.

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Ausin over Memorial Day weekend. The condo was perfect for 2 couples. The 2 bedrooms and 2 baths were set up very nice. The kitchen had everything you need. The location was perfect to downtown and easy access to I-35. Overall, we loved it. We would use that unit again.
