Great place to stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, sister, and I stayed at this condo during the last weekend of March and it was great! I liked the key-less entry because we didn't need to fuss with keys. The place was clean, quiet, and a good space for the three of us. I was hesitant at first since the location is outside the core of downtown but in the end, it wasn't even an issue. It was only a 10 min walk or less and you get to pass through a bridge over the Colorado River with a great view of the Austin skyline. We didn't rent a car for the weekend but we were able to go anywhere by walking/bus. Barton Springs is only a 5 min bus ride and S Congress is about a 10 min walk. There are tons of food trucks about 2 blocks away from the condo so there were plenty of food options around. My communication with Dominique was very easy as she responded to my emails quickly. I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.

Comfortable, Convenient, Cozy and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

My son, two teenage granddaughters, and I stayed at this wonderful condo at the end of March for 3 nights. I am so glad my son suggested booking a condo through vrbo and my first experience was wonderful because of our choice. The condo is cozy and well decorated. Most impressive was how clean the condo was when we arrived. Having a couple bedrooms upstairs enabled the teenagers to "get away" from the adults. And the patio and balcony upstairs provided a "get away" for the adults. Appreciated the supply of pillows, linens, and kitchen essentials. And the DVD's, games, and even a 1000 piece puzzle were extras I did not expect. The keyless entry was very convenient. As a senior I appreciated not having to worry about a key. It was so convenient to be able to walk to Congress St., coffee shops, town lake, food trucks and the Congress St. Bridge to view the phenomenal flight of the bats. Other places we visited were only minutes away in a car: Barton Springs Pool, Sculpture Park, Zelker Park, 6th St, and some wonderful restaurants. The rate was very reasonable and the owner's response to my emails and phone calls was prompt. I had forgotten to tell the owner about a pet that we were bringing and then I forgot to send the pet agreement back, and the owner very patiently and kindly waited for me to correct my errors. In addition, when I requested an extra half day to stay in the condo at the last minute, the owner was very accommodating. The condo is on a busy street; however, being so close to everything compensates for the noise of the traffic.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this location for our trip to SXSW. It was such a perfect home base for us and so convenient. Close enough to walk to everything, but also quiet and not right in the middle of all the craziness - couldn't ask for a better spot! Really lovely, clean, and comfortable space for us to relax and decompress from the festival. Dominique was an incredible host and I highly recommend her property to anyone looking to stay in Austin.

Great Stay and Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in March, and it exceeded our expectations every step of the way.

Fantastic location - walking distance to downtown AND to all the great shops and restaurants on South Congress; moments from Torchy's, Threadgills, and Guerro's, as well as the Long Centre, Auditorium Shores etc.

The place is huge, with a full kitchen, dining room, private patio, and much more..and best of all, it's impeccably clean! The service was stellar from the first time we contacted Dominique to inquire about a booking - she always got back to me within a few hours, answered all of our questions, and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable experience.

We've stayed in a LOT of different places in Austin over the last 10 years, and this has easily been the best place we've stayed. HIGHLY recommended!!

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to a wedding in Austin & the bride told us to search in VRBO because it would be more affordable & more comfortable place as opposed to a hotel. I'm glad I did. I had never heard of VRBO. This was a cute condo, very clean & spacious. Love that I was able to bring my furbaby Toby. He loved the little backyard & he enjoyed all the squirrels that would be scurrying around there. . This is a great location. There are some restaurants & food trucks within walking distance. Congress street is close by & my puppy & i went to a nearby small trail & the following day we went to the trail under the Bat Bridge which was only 5 min walking distance. The only thing was kind of scary was the entrance to the parking lot because it was sort of steep & you could see where a few cars had hit the bottom of their cars. Anyway, we were careful driving in & out, though. It also had a dvr to play movies, & there were books & game boards to play but we were busy with wedding stuff & sightseeing, we didn't have time to use them but it's a great touch. Also there is coffee available for you to make. All in all, it's a great cozy place. I have already recommended this site to a few people. We enjoyed our stay at this property. Thanks Dominique. :)

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at this rental the first weekend of SxSW and had a wonderful time! Dominique was extremely accommodating and Abel was so helpful! Originally concerned since we wouldn't be right in the downtown area we quickly realized this was even better - we were within walking distance to the SoCo area (full of cute shops and restaurants) and only a 10 minute Uber drive (if that) to Rainy and 6th street. At the end of each night we were easily able to go home to a quiet, relaxing spot. Overall a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Yes ...This place is great because is quiet yet walking distance to downtown and or south congress ...You get the luxury of peace and quiet nestled in a private nook then right down the street all the hub-bub of downtown living , south 1st street food trucks restaurants and shops ...If its raining hard or super hot a bike ride or uber is the trick
