Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

Booked Terry's place for a quick weekend in Austin. Very impressed with the neighborhood. Close enough to UT to walk the campus. Far enough away from the hustle of th city. Plenty of establishments within walking distance (less than a mile) to have a drink or grab a bite. Three bus stops in the area (less than 1/2 mile) made it easy to get around Austin's traffic.

Terry's place is a gournd level apartment in a 4-plex. It is appointed nicely for two, with a day-bed added if you have a need. Kudos on the bathroom space! Lots of local information was included in the welcome folder. I found Terry to be responsive, helpful, and friendly.

The best compliment I can give is that I will not hesitate to book this location the next time I come to Austin.

Clean, Comfortable & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Terry's apartment was as described and just what I needed...very clean, comfortable, quiet and well-located for my purposes. I was in town for a week-long course at UT Law School and didn't want to hassle with campus parking every morning. It took me about 15 minutes to walk to the Law School. And Terry was very responsive and pleasant!

staying at walking distance to UT

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is small but it has everything you will need and the main bed is in a separate area wrt the kitchen/living area. Terry is very nice and helpful. We had a conference at UT and we walked to reach the venue, but you can take also the bus (5 or 7). We visited by walk also the restaurants at th 43rd street and the Hancock shopping center. Thank you Terry!

Cute. Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Safe area. Cute. Small but feels bigger because of the way it is broken up. The bedroom space is several steps higher than the living area. This also provides a half-wall to separate the spaces but not feel closed in. Bathroom was clean and updated. Didn't use the kitchen except for fridge and microwave but it looked sufficiently equipped. Terry was very nice and accessible.
