Comfortable, cool, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Kirk was extremely accommodating and responsive, which I appreciated immensely. When I arrived the house was very clean (and cold by virtue of the awesome air conditioning). The spaciousness of the home was appreciated by our group, and we have no complaints whatsoever. The proximity to the rest of Austin was awesome as well. It was extremely easy to get around, and the quiet area that the house is located it was great after dealing with the loud party culture of 6th street.

Kirk even checked in a couple times during our 3 night stay, which I found quite thoughtful. I will definitely recommend this place to any friends or family who happen to be in Austin. Thanks for helping make our trip to Austin AWESOME!

Owner's Response: Nicholas, I enjoyed having you and your buds in town for the Independence Day weekend. That we were all from one of the 13 colonies, was icing on the cake! One of your friends even noticed my Maryland flag bathing suit.
