HAD US UNDER SURVEILLANCE THE ENTIRE TIME WE WHERE THERE !!! Took advantage of us because we were young!! We couldn’t even go outside for a simple drink, ALTHOUGH we were all 21 and above without him getting onto us!! Our trip to Austin was a Blast but dealing with this Home Owner was a nightmare!! He even threatened us at one point!! I paid for 13 guest and he would still get mad at who entered the house even THOUGH EVERYONE WHO ENTERED THE HOUSE WAS PAID FOR!! NO ONE ENTERED THE HOUSE WHO WAS NOT PAID FOR
We have OUTSIDE and fully disclosed door bell camera for the security of our guests and property.
This guest booked for 3 people but showed up with more than 14 guests. She paid for 6 extra after she was caught. She was very destructive, totally disregarded the House Rules. The house had to be professionally cleaned twice to get rid of the alcohol stench. She destroyed several towels and damaged our doorbell camera.
Clean, but basic
This property is clean and comfortable, but definitely not fancy. Yards (front and back) are gravel and stone pavers. There is no lockbox or combination lock on the door so you have to get by with the single key provided. That was difficult since there were six of us staying in the property and we needed to come and go at different times. The bathrooms need longer shower curtains or the curved shower rods. It's almost impossible to shower without fighting the curtain the whole time and getting the floor wet. The kitchen needs a supply of dish towels. It was nice to have the washer and dryer available since we spent our weekend on the lake.
Essentially the property is functional and reasonably priced, but very basic.
Thanks to you and the other 5 wonderful guests for your stay. I wish you would raised (during your 2-day stay) the important issues on your your review. Most of them would have swiftly be corrected. For example; you could have used the same lock (you initially retrieved the house key from) to hold the key for everyone on you team. Or I would have quickly provided additional keys at no additional cost to you. Also, I would have easily come to lower the standard sized shower curtain for you. Some homeowners landscaped with crushed granite and pavers during multi-year drought in Central Texas. There are 4 dish towels and more supplies in the cabinets and pantry. I confirmed them before responding now.
We are very responsive to the needs of all our guests; that is why we often check with our guests via text messaging during their stay.
Thank you for attesting to the cleanliness and fair pricing of our homes. We are not perfect but we dare to treat every guest the way we would want to be treated.
UC and the property were great
UC was a great host. Very friendly and easy to communicate with. The house was well kept and the beds were comfortable. Would recommend 10/10
We enjoyed hosting you and your friends too, Alex!
Thanks for leaving the house very clean.
You all are welcome back anytime!!
Nice place. Owner was very helpful and responsive. Would stay again!
Thank you for the great review and for leaving the house in excellent condition, Jack! You all are welcome back any time; we TRULY enjoyed hosting you!!
I would not choose to stay here again.
We only used two of the bedrooms thankfully since there were no sheets on one of the beds and none to be found on site. The duplex backs up to a strip mall which wasn't a pleasant view from both the kitchen and master bedroom. The owner was responsive and kind.
Thanks for appreciating our responsiveness and kindness. We are here to provide a pleasant stay for all our guests.
The totally safe "strip mall" behind the fenced townhomes have restaurants, banking, and shopping that other guests/homeowners find very convenient. No noise or safety issue at all! This is in our description.
We completely made two out of the 3 beds because only 2 guests were registered. We asked before and during your stay if there was any change in guests count. And we were told there were only 2 guests. There were extra sheets in the cabinet above the dryer. We wished you had raised this point the multiple times we asked during your stay if you needed anything.
Thanks for staying with us and for leaving the house in good condition.
Great stay in Austin!
This property was just as advertised -- spacious, very clean and comfortable, and conveniently located. The property owner, UC, was very responsive with communications and checked in to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Every interaction with him was a pleasure -- a true professional and gentleman.
We would not hesitate to book one of his properties again.
Thank you for your hospitality, UC!
Bless your kind hearts!
What your glowing review did not state is you are one of the nicest families we have hosted.... and we have been fortunate to host many wonderful guests. Thanks for everything, including leaving the house in excellent condition.
Your family is welcome to stay with us again any time!! Only good things will come your family's way!!
