Overall good stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment. Clean, well maintained, well laid out, and has all necessities.

Jessie and Rick are very interested in satisfaction of guests, and are sincere about having any issue, concern, or question brought to their attention.

This is plenty in walking distance; e.g. restaurants, downtown, Zilker, trail are all easy walks.

Perfect place to stay in the south end

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is great. It has everything to make your stay enjoyable. The beds were very comfortable and the host was very accommodating. Getting to all that Austin offers is easy. We used uber which made getting around really easy. From the apartment we walked 10 minutes to the Saxon pub, great live music, and the Odd Duck-good food. There is so much to see and we walked everywhere. I would love to come back and rent from Jessie.
