Why Mireille chose Old West Austin
Fantastic rental in the heart of Austin and quiet area of Downtown. Able to walk to shops, restaurants and more!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great location outside of downtown
Great location. Walking distance to coffee, markets and great dining. Quick drive to city. Quiet space.
Good location, room to sleep 4 adults comfortably but some issues
When we booked, we did not know that we would be required to give a credit card for a large damage deposit or purchase insurance. I am used to damage deposits, but felt the amount they were asking for was excessive. I did not know this until I was about to confirm. I saw no need for insurance since I always leave a place neat, tidy and clean with no damage, but ended up paying the insurance because I did not want to give my credit card for the excessive damage deposit.
When we arrived, it was very hot in Austin. The A/C was completely turned off and it was extremely hot in the unit. The bathroom was unbearable. We got there about 5pm and it took until midnight to cool off.
The manager asked in the instructions that the AC be turned off if we were not there. We did put the A/C on 78 when we would leave, but did not follow directions and left it on.
We asked for a fan for the bathroom, but the manager/owner said she did not have an extra one.
The kitchen is poorly appointed. No spatulas or other cooking utensils to cook breakfast and only one drinking glass. (There were mugs for coffee/tea.)
Clean and close to downtown
But not TOO close
Cute and updated- comfortable beds- clean and tidy-
A good home base while we visited Austin. Bring your swimsuit and onto Barton Springs
Great Place for Short Stay
I stayed here for a weekend with a couple of friends and it was great! I wouldn't want to stay here long-term with a several people because there's only one bathroom, but for a weekend trip it was perfect. Good location, comfy beds, 2 parking spots included, and the apartment was nice and clean.
Photos not accurate
Photos attached to property I reserved were not accurate. Photos available were for a different unit which was currently occupied. I am not one for false advertising. Kitchen had very, very little equipment, for example 1 spatula, no mixing spoons, no mixing cups, no dish sponge etc. I found it interesting that there were baking sheets available with no oven. I would not qualify that this was a full kitchen. Parking was difficult however, was in a good neighborhood and close to downtown. If you are looking for a weekend rental with more included in the kitchen, and more accurate photos then this is not the property. It is all what you want from it. Otherwise, it was okay and it served a partial purpose of what I thought I was getting when I rented. Pay attention to any e-mails regarding extra charges for early check in and check out.
I think there is a misunderstanding with this review and guest. The photos listed are taken at our rental and are 100% accurate. There is also an oven in the kitchen, don't understand why the guest is saying otherwise. The parking area is VERY large and is able to park 8 cars! There is no extra charges for early check in and late check out. I feel like this guest is writing this review to someone else. BEWARE of false reviewing!!
