                            I stayed here for a business trip from Australia and couldn't have been happier. This was my second trip to Austin and this apartment was perfect for my needs. This is a super clean apartment with really good kitchen facilities, a very comfortable bed, super fast wifi and it is in a GREAT location while being very quiet and private. It is so close to everything in Downtown - 5 minutes walk to Whole Foods, Waterloo Records and Book People. 10 minutes to "Dirty" 6th, 15 minutes to Rainy Street and is very well placed for a lot of local restaurants, cafes and bars. The apartment complex also has a nice outdoor area, full washing facilities and is extremely secure - the neighbors I met were also friendly. I had to extend my stay in the apartment by 1 week at very short notice and the lovely owner, Carol, was amazingly accommodating. She could not fulfill the final date of my extended stay as the apartment was booked but did her best to find me alternative accommodation. I visit Austin once per year and will definitely be seeking to stay in this apartment again. Thanks Carol!

                            Owner response: Thank you, Simon, for your nice review. I love managing my apartments and want my guests to enjoy the experience of staying in a clean, comfortable condo. Thank you for choosing my listing for your stay in Austin. I look forward to seeing you next year.

                            Very much enjoyed my stay at your VRBO. Apartment was spotless clean and offered everything I needed. Carol went above and beyond the call of being a great host for my short visit. Particularly loved some of the restaurant recommendations, like Waltons. Really was the best Oatmeal I have ever had....all the food items were fantastic, from the latte's to the salads and cookies. Also convenient to walk to 6th & 5th street as well as Whole Foods and REI. Thanks...had a great time! Totally Awesome city!

                            Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                            Owner response: Hi Warren, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am happy you found my condo and our vibrant city to your liking. It was an absolute pleasure to have met you. I look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Austin. Very sincerely, Carol PS: My husband also raves about the oatmeal at Walton's!

                            This was my first time doing a VRBO rental. Previously I've only stayed at hotels while traveling. But I wound up booking SXSW much too late (January) to get a hotel room in downtown Austin, so with some trepidation, I turned to VRBO and found this absolute gem of an apartment in the heart of downtown. Dealing with the owner was a breeze. After I put in my bid, I got a prompt reply accepting my offer. Future questions I had for the owner prior to my arrival were answered in a timely fashion via text message (and I had more than a few, as this was my first VRBO experience). The owner greeted me when my cab pulled up, and showed me the place. My jaw dropped. The apartment was immaculately clean and tidy, and looked brand spanking new. The pictures I saw prior to my arrival simply did NOT do this place justice. To top it off, a complimentary bottle of a delicious red wine along with an assortment of fruit was on the dining table. The location can't be beat - just one block from 6th street, just around the corner from a great collection of restaurants and bars, but far enough from the Convention Center (about 3/4 of a mile) that the apartment served as a nice "refuge" from the craziness of South By when my friend and I wanted some downtime to recharge. Another bonus: the apartment is about a 10 minute walk from Whole Foods. I would stay here again without hesitation.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                            Owner response: Cliff was the consummate best guest! I'm very happy to have had such a respectful, responsible and professional renter. I would love to have him back anytime.

                            This is a clean, well appointed apartment in a small complex with an awesome courtyard and pool. It is located off 6th St. in a very interesting old neighborhood with several historic homes nearby. The apartment had everything we needed and more, including some welcoming gifts that were a very nice touch. It was very close to the action on 6th St. but far enough away to get a good night's sleep. Carol was incredible. She was very flexible with our arrival and met us at the apartment to explain everything. You can tell she has put a lot of thought into this property and cares about your satisfaction and comfort.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, pet owners, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                            Owner response: To my Austin Marathon guests, thank you for your much appreciated review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. I hope I have the opportunity to host you again.
