A group of 7 of us were visiting Austin and we chose this house because of the number of beds/bedrooms. This is a great house for a big group with lots of beds/bedrooms. As other reviewers mentioned, Mike is a great and communicative host while also being respectful of your privacy. The house itself is very spacious and the listing info is very accurate.
Pros: Mike was a great host, probably one of the best; he is very communicative, always available by phone. He was also kind enough to grant us a late check out which was really nice of him. He also respected our space and privacy. The house is nice, accurately advertised with lots of bedrooms and beds- it was perfect for our group of 7, and there were even some un-used air mattresses we could have used if needed. Nice spacious kitchen and living room; nice big table for playing games. Lots of chairs and space. Big TV. Big yard and lots of light. 2 full baths and 1 half bath which is great for a group. A great location, being only 20 minutes from the airport and downtown.
Cons: We had a little bad luck, apparently we came on a bad week- the oven door was just broken, so we had to lean a chair against it to keep it closed to cook. The TV remote was missing, and the Sling TV remote does not have a volume button/input button, so this made watching TV/playing video games challenging. When we arrived, there were coffee/coffee grounds in the coffee machine, dirty pots/ pans/ knives that were put away like they were clean, but were actually dirty, so we had to clean them before we cooked; and also when we arrived there was a full clean dishwasher we had to unload, and a little junk behind/under the couches. I am sure Mike will address this with his housekeeper however as Mike seems very attentive and responsible. Other then these things which I'm sure were one-time mistakes, the rest of the house was clean and as expected.
All in all we had a really nice time and the house was perfect for our needs, and Mike was a great host. Thank you Mike for opening up your home to us, you have a nice home and we really appreciate it. Thank you and take care.
