About Terry McGinty

My husband and I love to travel and stay in short-term rentals. We have lived in the North University Neighborhood for 35 years and enjoy the many things this neighborhood has to offer.

Why Terry McGinty chose Austin

We live in the historic home in front of the property and the fourplex was built in te early 1970s.

What makes this apartment unique

Great location in Central Austin, easy to access bus lines.

Nice area with super helpful owners!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. It was way better than getting some expensive hotel. My one complaint is that the shower curtain liner was filthy in the bathroom. I assumed the property has cleaners so seeing that was quite a shocker. Other than that it was pretty decent and even had board games and Netflix which came in handy during the evenings when we were in for the night. Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: I apologize re the shower curtain. We do have house cleaners, and I had a miscommunication re the shower curtain w/them and thought it had been taken care of. I failed to check their work before your stay but it was replaced this last week and a plan put in place for reporting future problems. Thanks, Terry

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for any downtown Austin activities. Nice neighborhood, very tasteful decorating, clean, good privacy, great event advice to see the Congress bridge bats. There was a problem with the air-conditioning but, it was fixed within hours.. Over all exceeded our expectations.. We would definitely stay here again.
