Wonderful home away from home - hope it's available next year.
We used to live in Austin and our family tries to go back and visit for a week every year. We know the town well -- and have stayed in a couple different VRBO's (some multiple times - so we have favorites). When I saw this house on VRBO -- I knew exactly where it was because I recognized it -- right across from TacoDeli and steps from the Greenbelt. I decided to try it instead of our current favorite spot. Staying there was as great as I expected - and we have a new favorite. The beds were all comfortable - including the sleeper sofa -- which was nice b/c the little room with 2 twins was a little small for my kids - so one usually slept on the sofa and really liked it. It's clean, comfortable, and convenient to everything we like to do when we are in town. Nice extra's: the toiletries, paper towels, detergent, trash bags, etc is the stuff you would buy yourself -- not the cheapest available - just makes it feel a little more like home. Hoping the a-side is available the next time we visit.
We were so happy to host your family, Marla. And we are honored to be your new home away from home! Thanks for being great guests.
Easily one of my top rentals!
We stayed at The A Side while evacuating from Hurricane Harvey. We hastily scanned HomeAway and booked this unit without hardly any research. We hit the jackpot. The unit has everything you would want, it was super clean, well stocked, cold AC, comfy beds, nice appliances in a good location, and nothing in disrepair. The property also has a fenced in backyard, which is great if you have a dog. The highlight though was the owner, Fair. She was so caring, generous, and easy to work with. HomeAway doesn't let you book a property for same day check-in but Fair let us, which saved me the big headache of getting hotel for one day. She routinely messaged us to make sure we had everything we needed. She made having to evacuate a lot less stressful.
There is a taco place and store across the street. Also a pretty neat trail to hike and walk your dog right down the road. We loved everything about our stay and hope to make it back to Austin soon. When we do we will stay here for sure.
I can't thank Fair enough for her hospitality
Hi Joel. I was so glad to be able to help out in such a stressful time. I hope that your home stayed dry. Next time I hope your stay will be under much more celebratory terms! We welcome you all back anytime. Thanks for being great guests. - Fair
Great House! Great Location!
The location is perfect - You are just one block from the Greenbelt and also just one block from one of the very best taco places in town. Also, Downtown Austin is just a few minutes away.
The home is spotless and Fair provided us with all the condiments we needed along with some very fresh coffee and nuts. Also, there is a record player with some classic Austin music.
This house is in the perfect location--away from downtown, yet close and easy to get to many areas of Austin. Loved stepping out the door and walking the Greenbelt/trails to Zilker Park. We walked across the street for incredible breakfast tacos. The house was very clean and has all the essentials, plus added convenient touches. Loved the beautiful yellow roses on the table and the updated furnishings in the house. The kitchen and appliances are very nice. We also enjoyed the private backyard and deck.
The owner is very quick to respond to any questions/ concerns. We would recommend this property--great experience!
Thank you for the great review and for leaving our place in such great condition! We are glad you enjoyed your long weekend in Austin and welcome you back any time!
Cozy and Such Great Location!
The A Side was such a great find for my husband and I for a quick weekend stay in Austin! We had originally booked another property, but unfortunately, they canceled on us last minute. So to find this cute property with such a limited time frame was awesome! Fair was very quick to respond and super helpful and friendly, she even chatted with us on the phone to help us book the property.
The duplex is in a great location and allowed for us to quickly get to all of our favorite spots in town. The master bedroom has the most amazing bed! Oh my! Never have I stayed anywhere that I enjoyed the bed that much; and it for sure makes you feel so much more at home when you have a great nights sleep. Fair also allowed for us to bring our 2 year old Boston Terrier and he enjoyed the back yard so much! Overall we will for sure be staying at this property for our future stays in Austin, we loved it!
Your home was the perfect spot for our family Thanksgiving in Austin. We could not have chosen a better location - steps from the greenbelt - steps from great tacos and craft beer. The house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and fun! Thank you!
Thank you Michelle! We were so happy to provide a spot for your family to gather for Thanksgiving. Thank you for taking good care of it! You are welcome back any time!
Amazing location. Minutes from downtown, Zilker Park yet steps away from peace and serenity on the Barton Creek Greenbelt hike and bike trail. Walk to Zilker Park on the trail for the big festivals. (while everyone else is parking miles away!!) Right off of Mopac with easy access to 360 (Capital of Texas Hwy), Ben White (71/290). Easy access to Austin Bergstrom Airport, SoCo, SoLa...
