Cockroaches Everywhere

  • 2 of 5

Thankfully, I arrived at the house in the afternoon because there was a lock on the door that I didn’t have a code or key for. I called the manager and she told me where the key was to open the other lock but I kept wondering what would have happened if I arrived late at night? The house is the complete opposite of an open-concept layout and one of the bedrooms cannot be closed off for privacy. The bunk beds were very squeaky and needed to be tightened. The house was relatively clean but it is infested with roaches. We complained about the bugs and the exterminator could not get there until after we were gone. I understand that, however, we saw so many roaches that I’m convinced there is a huge nest behind the kitchen sink. We would kill the three on the counter only to turn around and have three more show up. I live in Texas and know we have to put up with bugs but it was disgusting to see so many roaches on our bananas, bags of chips, etc. And the kicker? A fried cockroach in the toaster. I sure am glad I looked before using it.

Exceptionally great place for families with kids!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to stay, especially for families. The set up is perfect for kids and the neighborhood is safe and friendly, convenient to shops, restaurants, and all that Austin has to offer. The cost is reasonable and the property is well maintained. We loved it! The only improvement I would suggest is better response from the host. One of our travelers got to Austin early and inquired about one hour earlier check in. The host did not respond at all.

Attractive neighborhood close to Austin attractions

  • 3 of 5

overall the house was beautiful and close to everything we wanted to do. However, the inside was not as clean as I would have hoped. There was blood on the master beds mattress cover, roaches in the kitchen and the kitchen utensils and appliances (specifically toaster) were not clean. The dryer had a load of clothes in it that appeared to be from the previous renters stay. The local agent was easy to get I touch with and very nice.

Fantastic location and fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This property suited all our needs. There were 5 adults staying here for the Austin 70.3 2015. Plenty of space for all of us. Had a great time. Neighborhood is nicely located with lots nearby. Downtown is close enough to get there in 10 min. Drive to Travis County Expo was only 20 min. Neighbors are nice. Clean property. Absolutely loved it! Will be staying here again!!!! Thank you so much!

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our group of 6. We arrived earlier than anticipated and called the local contact. She check wh the cleaning service and then let us check in early so we didn't have to lug our bags around when we went to lunch. The house looks small from the street, but the lay out is unique and offers plenty of space for 6 adults, with room to spare. The house was clean and well decorated with lots of art work that screamed "Austin". The location of the house is great. It's within walking distance to some fun local shops, restaurants and bars. Room service, Barflys, workhorse, tigress, drink.well, Pharoa, and Epoch Coffee are all just a short walk down the street, but there are no sidewalks in the immediate neighborhood, so just keep that in mind when out and about. Our group took a walk around the neighborhood one afternoon to admire the very eclectic and interesting mix of houses that are located in that part of North Loop. We rented a car for our stay, which I would recommend doing. There are bus stops close to the house, but I didn't see one bus in our neighborhood. With your own car, getting downtown to 6th street, Zilker, Rainey St, UT, and even to places a little further from down town like Mount Bonnell and Hamilton pool was a breeze. Parking at the house was no problem and even when downtown, we never spent more that $10 to park for 5 hours or so.

Overall, this house was exactly what we needed for our trip and would love to stay here again.
