We arrived early in Austin and there were some initial communication issues, which were sorted. The loft was perfect - exactly as described and in a good location. The Austin highlights were either within easy walking distance or a short cab ride away.

My husband and I stayed in Raquel & Jacob's loft during a quick 5-night trip to Austin for ACL, and we found it to be the perfect place to explore downtown. It's just off the beaten path so you don't have to deal with the nightlife all night, yet it's walkable to 6th Street, Rainey, and even South Congress if you're feeling ambitious like us. We really appreciated Raquel & Jacob's suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area – especially Lambert's and Easy Tiger (we went twice during our stay!). The apartment was clean and comfortable, and our hosts were very attentive and available. We highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity!

Raquel and Jacob's place was impeccably clean and in a very convenient location. I enjoyed the view of the Capitol along with the artistic touches inside the apartment. They were very prompt with communication and provided a thorough list of local suggestions that were much appreciated. I would recommend their place and would stay here again.

Raquel + Jacob were very available, communicative hosts. The view of the state building from the living room really is something, and the location can't be beat. Their place is a good option for solo business travel. One caveat: the shower is incredibly small. Do not plan to have any luxurious showers, or do any personal care that requires bending over.

This apartment is in a great location; walking distance to the excitement of 6th street and a short ride from everything else you could possibly want to do. Raquel + Jacob were very responsive to our needs. Definitely recommend this place.

We live down the street from the apartments we rent on Airbnb and enjoy Austin, music, art, food, and designing great spaces. We keep our two Airbnb apartments in tip top shape and well-appointed.

We have lived in downtown Austin for almost a decade. If you need any suggestions for dining, dancing, or live music in Austin just ask.
