Canceled by Owner 6 Days before Scheduled Stay!

  • 1 of 5

I contacted Dustin (owner) on Feb 9th to ask if his property was available for the weekend that my husband and I would be traveling to Austin (March 3-6). We were extremely interested in his property and due to pets being considered we wanted to double check that our dog could accompany us. Dustin responded quickly letting me know that the property was available and that we could in fact being our dog. We booked and received confirmation on Feb 10th. Then, 6 days before our trip I receive an email from Dustin saying: “I’m very sorry to do this but I just cancelled your reservation and provided a 100% refund to you. We’ve had something come up with our property and I’m concerned it would negatively impact your stay with us.” I was disappointed to say the least that Dustin waited till 6 days before we left to inform me of the information about the property. I was happy that we got our money back however; I was confused why there was not more of an explanation of to what exactly was wrong with the property. So I reached out to Dustin through phone and chatted with him where he still did not have an explanation for what the problem was. He first stated that there was an electrical problem, but that there was still people staying at the property. So it seemed to me that the property was still functioning. So I asked further if the other guest where having issues and an unpleasant stay, and again what the issue was. Dustin replied by saying that actually at this time they don’t really know the issue because they haven’t had an electrician diagnose the problem. Again, still never telling me in any way what the issue even was. I expressed my disappointment to Dustin, and while he apologized I couldn’t help but get the impression that something was just not being said when it came to exactly why the reservation was canceled. I explained to Dustin that we now had to book another place, and that the option where limited due to traveling with a pet and trying to stay in budget. Dustin offered to pay for any difference, however, after the only experience that I have had with him, I was very hesitant to book a place just based on his “word” that he would pay the difference. Overall, I think the property is beautify displayed in pictures and has overall great reviews. However, I would highly recommend using extreme caution when booking this property. It sure does make for a stressful time trying to find a place to stay last minute.

Owner's Response: Dear Ashley, Thank you for your feedback and we understand your disappointment. Since this was the first time that we've ever cancelled a reservation, we weren't sure the best way to let you know and we did our best to be fair. It sounds like 6 days notice and a 100% refund wasn't satisfactory to you. We assure you that we did let you know as soon as we realized that we needed to cancel so that you could have time to find another place to stay. As for our track record, we've been reliable and responsive to our guests. Your experience of us needing to cancel the reservation is a rare exception rather than the rule. As we explained on the phone, this is a family owned business for us that we take very seriously. We are disappointed that you decided to give us a 1 star review even though you have never met us and never stayed at our place. Our hope is that our future guests read the other reviews from guests that have actually stayed at our property. Regards, Dustin & Rebecca PS - the electrical issue is resolved

Top Notch Austin Rental

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Dustin's garage apartment rental during Austin City Limits weekend with two friends. We were extremely pleased with our stay here. The property felt brand new, was clean and equipped with essential toiletries,towels, etc. We also enjoyed the Keurig coffee in the morning. The location is conveniently near the Mopac Expressway and Lamar Blvd to make travel around Austin easy. The neighborhood is great as well, with many great food/drink options nearby. I wish we had the chance to meet Dustin and his family, however they were out of town when we stayed. Regardless, communication was great with Dustin and we felt very welcome. I would definitely recommend staying here! Thanks Dustin!

Perfect property for a couple or small family!

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful! Clean, comfortable, safe and beautiful. Our family (3 adults) stayed here for a long period of time and it was ideal. The location was central for us as we had a car and it was easy to get around Austin. Highly recommend!!!!

beautiful, well-maintained and ideal for kids

  • 5 of 5

This location could not have been more perfect for my long weekend in Austin with my 2 school aged kids. The unit is beautifully appointed and maintained. It was well-stocked with necessities. The owners were gracious and helpful. The space is small but utilized very well, so we were able to sleep comfortably and never felt like we were on top of one another.

The neighborhood is teeming with children and within two easily walkable blocks there is a playground that absolutely delighted my children. (I will confess to playing on the structures, too!)

I was sad to leave my little Austin oasis!
