Neat. Quiet, private.

The place was well put together and provided essentials for a nights stay. The owner communicated clearly and we had no problems.

So-so rental

  • 2 of 5

At first glance its a nice rental. Its clean and tidy. And actually after the first night stay we did not notice anything out of place, but we stayed for several nights. A vast majority of the outlets do not work. The heater does not work. I had read someone else's review about the floors and didn't notice at first. Then a couple of the mats were moved from general foot traffic, and well underneath them are huge in dents/holes in the floors. The shower was extremely hard to figure out how to use and I would not suggest anyone over 6 foot using it. The shower head is fixed extremely low. The fridge wasn't cleaned out. The keys also aren't labeled and it was frustrating every time checking each of the keys for three different locks. One of the major issues we encounter was that the only real bed was concave in the middle. I typically do not even leave reviews, but I wish I would have know all of this before renting this home away. Also I was worried I would not receive my security deposit back due to the all preexisting damages. Fortunately I did receive it 100% back. Also the owner does respond promptly to requests and texts. Though I hope the owner reads this and makes changes, because otherwise it is a lovely little house its just in dire need of tlc.

Clean, affordable spot in East Austin

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a great part of East Austin, just a quick rideshare from downtown. It's small but clean, and you really can't beat the price. A buddy and I stayed comfortably while we were in town to catch a couple of concerts. The owner was responsive and super easy to deal with. Would stay again!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This place a good value for the price. The neighborhood seemed sketchy but was perfectly fine since we took a Fasten (like Uber) everywhere. We enjoyed our stay. Jason was very responsive and helpful when we texted a few questions.
