Anna’s place is in a great location and is safe, multiple pool(s) on site are nice even for little kids - I’d stay there again for sure. We did have some complications due unplanned work in the above apartment however Anna took care of us - thank you Anna.

Anna was very easily accessible, a quick responder, and considerate of our time when we asked to stay an hour late after check out. The location is perfect for visiting the parks and Barton Springs. I would recommend this space to anyone wishing to explore this part of Austin!

If you are bring a child or children, please keep looking. This is not a place for children. The pool is full of pot smoking/drinking adults looking to hook up with each other. There is nothing close by for shopping or restaurants. The place backs up against a parking garage …

Response from Anna:
Hi Marci. I am sorry the apartment did not meet your expectations. Our housekeeping is usually very thorough, so I am surprised to hear that the floors were dirty. However, if there were other problems you could have contacted me and given me the opportunity to fix them. I never heard from you during your stay... not once. In this business, no news is good news. We ask that guests perform some checkout procedures only as a courtesy to our housekeeping. This is not required but helps keep our cleaners from being taken advantage of by some guests. Apparently this was too much to ask of you. I do sincerely apologize if we failed to provide clean accommodations, but I feel the that your assessment of the property is misleading and unfair. With all the hypersensitive feedback you left me for "not checking in" on you (like you expected to be coddled your whole visit) I can assume that most of it was out of spite. You couldn't even walk across the parking lot to the onsite pool without complaining about the "blazing sun" and "pot-smoking adults". Even the kitchen table was intolerable to you. Next time, you might consider shelling out the cash for the W Hotel, or perhaps the Taj Mahal.
