Great Location. Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We had a bachelor party with 8 guys and the house was exactly what we needed. Kirk is very helpful and was available from the moment the place was booked until we checked out. If you are looking for a place that won't break the bank for a group stay, I highly suggest this place.

Owner's Response: Marsha, thank you so much for your kind review. I had a great time having y'all stay at my place. I love living so close to downtown, but having visitors stay here gives me an excuse to go visit other areas. Come back again! Kirk

Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for a group of ten guys for my brother's bachelor party for a long weekend. It was most of the group's first time in Austin, and we had an awesome trip. From the outside the house looks small, but once inside, it surprises you. The house was perfect for our needs - we weren't really planning on spending too much time indoors (as we had plans all weekend), so we mostly needed a place to crash, and we were able to fit all ten guys sleeping, were able to make breakfast, and get ready efficiently in the morning for the days activities. Most of the time we were taking ubers, and an uber into downtown was always available and very cheap.

Kirk was also awesome - he was responsive and accommodating. He let us know about some of the places around the house that were within walking distance, and checked in to make sure the house was treating us well.

All in all: Great weekend - would stay again.

convenient, comfortable for a crowd

  • 4 of 5

Kirk was very easy to communicate with and accommodating to our group of 9 adults. Kirk gave us full attention, which we needed very little of because the home was well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is a nice rental.
