Originally made a mistake when booking, Kirk was very helpful and accommodated my request to reschedule! House was great, real close to down town but away from the hustle and bustle so you can really enjoy your stay.
Great location, bring soap and coffee!
Kirk was super friendly and helpful. A very quick responder. House is in great location, so we were able to walk everywhere. House was clean, but definitely needs some updating and often smelled a bit musty. Based on other vacation rentals - I was expecting at least some basic toiletries (like shampoo, conditioner, body soap) and coffee/tea, so was bit disappointed that those weren't provided. Cost also seemed a bit high - but there were only 5 of us and house could definitely sleep more people.
Thank you very much for your comments. As far as the soap and shampoo/conditioner is concerned there are so many variations and personal preferences I decided several years ago not to supply them.
At your convenience could I trouble you to text/contact me about the area of the house where you felt it smelled musty please? I would like to remedy this asap. Could not smell it myself but then I can't smell as well as I used too. I'm going to bring my daughter and my girlfriend in next week to check it out as well.
Any advice as to what/where updating in the home would be greatly appreciated as well.
Great place for a big group, great price
Was in town for a bachelor party and this was a great place, especially for the price, and very close to all the action downtown! Kirk was available to help with anything we needed. Make sure to bring bath soap and shampoo, otherwise the house is equipped with all the basics.
Thank you for the five star rating. It was great having you here. I don't include body soaps or shampoos because I have found it to be a rather personal preference item.
I do have dishwasher soap and usually will have handwashing soap as well.
Great location with nice accommodations
This was a great place to stay in the Austin area. Accommodations were nice, Kirk was very responsive and flexible. Downtown is a quick inexpensive uber away. Highly recommend.
Thank you Peter for the great review. Loved having you here.
Couldn’t have gone any better!!
Kirk was a wonderful host! He went above and beyond to make sure myself and the rest of the girls in my party were comfortable and well accommodated. He was sociable and so down to earth that it made me feel completely at ease! I would recommend him to any friends of mine that were looking for a place to stay in Austin in the future.
Thank you very much the the kind review. It was so nice having you and your party here at my place.
I enjoy having interesting people from around the country stay at my place and see Austin.
Come back anytime.
Nice! Real locall flavor.
We really enjoyed the house and the location. Would come back again!
