78704 is one of the best neighborhood in Austin. So much local flavor, local art shops, thrift stores and restaurants. You could spend a month exploring just this zip code and still have more to do! We are close to several green belt access points, take a hike in the city and explore our beautiful waterway. Zilker and Barton springs can cool you off quickly, and just over 1 mile from the house! Our street is quiet and very safe with wonderful neighbors. We find that Fasten (taxi app), walking and biking are the best ways to get around when you stay in this home. Fasten typically comes within a few minutes and costs typically less than $7 to get you to your favorite downtown bar or restaurant.

Perfect for our large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 guys between the upstairs and downstairs units and it was plenty big. The kitchen and living room were nice and updated and was a perfect place to gather. The neighborhood was nice and it was just about a 10 minute drive down to 6th street and 20-25 minutes to the airport. I would definitely recommend for a group of 18 or less.

Great/easy location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here for my bachelorette party. Very clean and cool house. Only downside was that when I booked it I had no idea that the units were completely separated; kind of a bummer getting split into two separate houses. Other than that it was a great place to stay in Austin. I would definitely come back again!

Great location cute interior

  • 4 of 5

Great location to stuff in Austin and cute decor inside. It was really hot in the home as they keep it in the 80's previous to our stay, also with the amount of people the house holds it never seemed to cool down. The thermostat is locked so you can't change it to go any cooler. We ended up leaving for an entire day with hope that when we came back it would be cooler and ended up relying on fans. There were issues with outlets not working and the fire detectors were all disarmed with no batteries in them which was worrisome. The stairs to the lower unit were very dangerous-would recommend getting fixed before renting out anymore as I don't think they would pass inspection.

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah! Thank you for staying with us! We appreciate all of your feedback and are so glad you enjoyed the awesome location and decor. We do put a lock on our thermostats so they can be adjusted as low as 62, or as high as 82, for our guests' comfort. As it is extremely warm in Austin right now, our thermostats automatically adjust to use less energy during peak energy usage hours in the afternoon, and cool more during non-peak hours. However, you can adjust the AC as low as 62 at any time. I have checked the AC and it is working properly, but we are sincerely sorry it was an issue. I remember you calling about the outlets in the bathrooms as they had stopped working and asked you to press the GFCI button on one of the outlets, which fixed the issue. This is often caused by multiple electronics that use a lot of electricity being plugged in at once. Thank you for bringing the issues with the smoke detectors to our attention. We are handling it immediately! The stairs to the downstairs unit have been recently inspected and are completely safe, but we do ask in the arrival instructions that only two people be on the stairs at once, just to be safe. Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize for any issues. Please never hesitate to reach out to us during your stay and we will do everything possible to assist with any issues.

Great place to stay in Austin

  • 4 of 5

Great space for a big group of people. We rented the entire house - upstairs unit A and downstairs unit B. Had a great time. There was plenty of space for sleeping and the beds were all very comfortable. Linens were clean. Bathrooms are great - good size, plenty of linens, soap and easy for everyone to get ready at the same time. Location was really great - close to park, river/lake, easy to get a cheap uber/taxi quickly to go out and close to downtown for bars/restaurants. Kitchen/Living/Dining is great space and allows for a lot of room to hang out in the house. The upstairs deck was nice if you wanted to hang out there too. We didn't spend a ton of time out there, but only because it was quite hot when there.

It was easy to check in/out of house. The owner reached out midstay to make sure we were comfortable and see if we needed anything.

A few very minor things we did notice, which is why I give a 4 and not a 5. We did have to kill a few big bugs in the house, but given the location/yard, it maybe was to be expected. Wifi didn't work the whole time there. There was only one hairdryer in the whole house (upstairs) - not one in downstairs unit. Would just recommend to bring one or two if you have a big group of girls like we did.

We had a great stay. Kevin was super helpful and responsive. The house was perfect.

We couldn't of found a better spot. Walking distance to the park. Easy for cars to park. Large deck. It was beyond perfect. Sorry for the late review!
