Perfect Location and Accommodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a long weekend and we could not have been happier! The location was great - easy bike ride or walk to restaurants, bars, bats, biking/running trails, etc! The accommodations were perfect - very comfortable and very well appointed! And our hosts could not have been more gracious! Will definitely be back!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

(Stayed early June) This property was perfect! Jessie and Rick were great hosts. Very friendly and stayed in contact with us throughout our stay. When we needed something they were there to take care of us.

We had a small child with us and they had a pack and play, toys, sippy cups and more! Whenever we needed something all we had to was open a cabinet or closet and there it was. The beds were comfortable. The washer and dryer were great to have. It was a quiet location but so close to everything.

Thanks for everything, Jessie and Rick!

Perfect Location, Property & Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this rental. It truly is an ideal location for getting to most of Austin's must see spots. The toys and baby/toddler supplies were so helpful and made everyone happy! The kitchen is well stocked making it easy to cook breakfast and other meals in the apartment. I wish the king size bed was a firmer mattress, but everyone's preferences are different. All-in-all we felt super comfortable in this clean, well kept rental. We would stay again if we came back to Austin!

Great location, lovely apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this property. The location could not be better. Park your car and walk approx 1 to 2 miles into the city or any number of resturants and pubs or other attractions, including the shops and resturants and pubs on Congress Ave. The apartment is very comfortable, the owners very nice. I have no doubt we will return for a 3rd visit at some future date.
