Very happy with our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was nice and tidy, bed was very comfy. Apt complex was pleasant, neighborhood better than previous reviewer described, felt totally safe. Resident cats were cute.

6th St and Rainey st entertainment districts were about a $10 cab drive away, Barton springs a 15 min drive.

Apartment owner quick to answer questions and returned deposit lickity-split.

It wasnt a problem for us, but the only down side was poor water pressure.

Thanks for a nice stay!

I would recommend it for a single person or couple that is not planning on spending a lot of time in the property. It's small but very clean and nice, good location.

One of the best VRBO experiences I have ever had! Owner was very accommodating and helpful throughout my stay. Great central location and easy to get anywhere for an affordable price. This is a must stay!

Basic updated apartment

  • 2 of 5

I received immediate response from the property manager about booking, no problems there. Security deposit was refunded quickly too.

The good and the bad.


- Close location to bars, some food, walgreens (for anything you forget) and a quick walk down to the river

- Simple apartment, beautifully updated flooring, countertops, cabinetry, and shower head in bath

- Comfy sheets and blankets

- Loved playing the board games at night - really fun

- Quite a selection of dishware and cookware - had we cooked, we'd have been good to go

- DVD player available for the TV, we rented a redbox, and it worked well

- Our dog was allowed at the property for no additional fee

Not so good:

- Location is on a less than savory side of town - walking around led us past multiple shady characters and groups of panhandlers, within sight of the apartment. Not somewhere I felt comfortable walking alone as a female. Not to mention the "extra security" bar provided to block the door at night. Also, if you're there on a weekend evening, there is a salsa club extremely close by that parties LOUDLY late into the night.

- To say the bed was uncomfortable is an understatement, both my boyfriend and I went home with aching backs from the terrible mattress. AWFUL.

- The shower was, well...creepy. Owner's body scrubbers, foot scrubbers, and all shower extras were in the shower. YUK. Not to mention, the shower curtain was disgustingly moldy. 

- Air conditioner squeals constantly. Seriously, constantly. 

- After paying my rental money, there was really no contact with the property manager. I had to prod her to get the address of the property and any information about entry into the property. Really confusing, and NO information once we got to the property about what to do when we left (sheets, trash, key, etc) maybe they're new to the rental business.

- A gang of about 5 black cats lived outside the front door. The owner must feed them, because they tried to rush into the apartment EVERY SINGLE TIME we opened the door.

- NO internet, NO cable, NO microwave

Overall, the property was fine for what we needed - a place to sleep. Made us feel like the owner didn't prepare for renters at all. We had no idea what was for us to use (towels, things in the fridge, blankets, etc) - something I would expect from a lesser rental company, not this website. 

I would not recommend to a friend or stay there again myself.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I apologize that your stay did not meet your expectations. Being a small 1/1 in a great, walkable neighborhood, I focus on providing a comfortable, yet affordable rental targeted to those that want to get out and explore Austin. I love our unique, urban, safe neighborhood, but am happy to provide extra security features as you mention for those not accustomed to being in the heart of the city. I'm also happy to say I was able to add wifi access recently! To help manage future expectations, I have updated my property description to include that I do not provide cable nor a microwave, but we can recommend fantastic local restaurants, bars, museums and coffee shops. My bed is a brand new Tempurpedic firm, which will not appeal to everyone, but I think it provides an excellent night's sleep.
