Wonderful place to stay, helpful host. Comes with everything to make you feel at home. Easy walk to Barton Springs. Home was cute and clean, bed was comfortable and neighborhood was safe and quiet

by Review from Airbnb Guest #246652


The Retro was a lovely apartment for my 6-week sojourn in Austin. Cynthia provided a lot of detail before my arrival so I knew what to expect and had notes to refer to, such as, how to access the laundry. She also made sure they had my contact details, and I had theirs to communicate in the easiest way for me eg. email or messages.

The kitchen is really well kitted out that I could cook most things and there were even tupperware containers for freezing or taking meals out with you for the day. The terrace is delightful, and I utilised it well. The bed in the master bedroom is HUGE! Good storage options to pack your belongings away, too.

The location is super close to Zilker park and Barton Springs and the whole region south of town lake is full of strong food and drink options. The street itself is really tranquil.

The coffee grinder wasn;t working and Cynthia replaced it within a few hours. I also had issues with the wifi at the weekend and Cynthia was straight on to an engineer.

Hi Matt,
So glad you enjoyed your stay at The Retro, our amenities and location! We wanted to set up our rentals with all the things that we want when traveling but haven’t found in most rentals we have stayed in, which is why we put in Tempurpedic mattresses in most.
Now that you have fallen in love with Austin, if you ever decide to move here, we would love to help you find a perfect home through our real estate company, Zilker Properties. Hope to see you back soon!
Our Best, Cynthia and Peach
