The condo was as seen in the photos on the listing, although the couch was upgraded to a sectional. This condo is clean and located in a very nice building in downtown Austin, within walking distance to everything, including a short walk to 6th Street. We rented a car so we can easily travel around, but I'm sure it's just as easy to use the local transportation to get to South Congress, etc.
Bethany couldn't have been easier to work with. She was quick to reply to emails, texts and phone calls and worked very hard to be sure everything we needed was taken care of. The key pick up and drop off was very easier, no problems whatsoever. It was also easy to find a non-reserved parking space in the building so we didn't need to worry about that.
The only suggestions I would make is for Bethany to make the space a little more renter-friendly. I know she also uses the condo often, but it would be much nicer if she had more devoted space for renters. For example, the master bedroom had nowhere for us to put our clothes. Her dresser was completely filled with her own personal belongings. Same with the bathroom. I would suggest boxing up personal items and putting them away during rentals. Also, she should clear a few shelves in the refrigerator for renters (we did that ourselves) and maybe clean out a cabinet so we can put away grocery items. All other rentals I've used have probably been 100% set up for renters only, but if I'm paying market rent to stay somewhere, I want to feel like it's my place to use.
Overall we had a nice stay in her place and would consider renting it again if she decides to put away her personal belongings so the place would be "ours" for the stay.
