Great Apartment for short or long stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for about a week on a working vacation and found it very clean, comfortable and convenient to getting around the Austin area. Also, the community pool was very nice and having access to it was a big plus. There's a great walking/running trail around the community and tennis courts near by in case it's not too hot to take advantage of them! The landlords are great and were very helpful with suggestions for local things to do (restaurants, bars, etc.). If you want the convenience of having a kitchen, the one in the apartment is pretty nice and has most of what you need for some good cooking. There is a parking spot right next to the entrance off the street. Overall, very nice, new, modern apartment that definitel beats a hotel stay.

Convenient and quiet with everything you need!

This is a great retreat in Austin--quiet for sleeping yet convenient to downtown and the university without ever getting on the interstate. The hosts provide everything you need.

cute apartment, very clean and well cared for, private, great host

  • 5 of 5

Michael was a great host, the apartment has everything you could possibly need, the neighborhood is wonderful and there is a gorgeous park across the street from the house and great places to walk. there are lovely restaurants in the neighborhood and the apartment is in a very central part of Austin so it is easy to get wherever you want to go. My week staying here was very pleasant and I would recommend Michael in this apartment to anyone who was traveling to Austin and wanted to stay in a lovely place.

Wonderfully homey.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apartment and the community. The apt. Was immaculate and had many homey touches (cold filtered water waiting in fridge, coffee and tea, misc spices, shampoo, etc) and the information they left in a binder was incredibly extensive and helpful! Also loved the community pool including lap lanes - was a wonderful surprise two blocks away.
