Nice place to crash in Austin

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rental for a few days in Austin. Very clean, roomy, and modern. Arrived to a kitchen stocked with basic necessities, and a few luxuries such as beer, eggs, muffins and candy. Well equipped kitchen. Very nice bedroom and bath. My wife loved the shower. Washer and dryer worked well. Unit has off-street parking, which was welcome on the crowded street. Inexpensive Uber fares to surrounding breweries and beer gardens. Nice park with bike rentals less than a mile away. Thoroughly enjoyed this rental.
