Rolando was a terrific host. We requested his place close to midnight the day before check in and Rolando accepted the request within 30 min and it was ready for us when we got there the very next day. He told us we could call or text him any time we had any questions and when we did, he responded in a timely manner. And check in and check out was seamless.
The place was in the perfect location for us. It's within walking distance of Rainey St and 6th St and several restaurants and bars downtown but it was in a good quiet area across the river from downtown so it was nice and quiet at night. It also had an Austin B Cycle station close by so we were able to rent bikes and ride to Zilker park just down the street, about a 10 min bike ride.
Rolando had plenty of space and places to sleep for the 3 of us who were staying there: one bed, a pretty large air mattress, and a 6 person sectional couch. I was surprised that he provided several necessities for us if we needed them, including extra toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, razors, and other toiletries. He also included plenty of clean towels for us. He let us watch his Netflix and Hulu, which was a bonus.
I would gladly stay here again the next time I visit Austin.
