My boyfriend and I and two of our friend couples stayed here for four nights and all of us could not have had a better time and felt more at home and relaxed. The booking was very easy to do with the owners and they answered all my questions before arrival. We arrived at the place and it was all ready to go with a nice animated fireplace and all the neat inside lights on for us. There is a king bed, a queen bed and two couches that were converted into beds. Plenty of extra sheets were available as well and plenty of stocked towels in the restroom. The restroom was so unique and wonderful. They have a corky shower with neat plumbing fixtures. The light fixture is a film real with film in it, as well as an awesome rain showerhead. The kitchen was just the perfect size and we utilized it to its fullest potential, which was exactly, if not more prepared than my kitchen back home. The fridge had a Britta filter which I was very happy to see because I use one religiously back home. We bought food for the grill they have in the back yard and stored our groceries in the fridge. One morning the owners came by real quick to drop off some good morning cookies, which were so scrumptious. They are so nice and accommodating. They go beyond and above for their staying guests. They have a TV and direct TV hooked up and we enjoyed some evening shows when all of us came back. Their backyard was just as neat and beautiful as the rest of the grounds and house. They provide nice chairs, a table, a grill, a tree swing, a fire pit and room for a dog or two. The backyard is right behind a creek so you feel as if you are not in a neighborhood. The Studio Azul is next to the casita roja, but honestly we never encountered our neighbors so it was almost like we were the only ones there. They are located right by I-35 highway so when leaving anywhere it is very convenient and very close to downtown and Zilker Park. The parking situation was no problem at all, enough space for two cars on one side and more on the other side of the house on the street. This house is located in such an adorable and safe neighborhood. None of us wanted to leave, it was so nice and we definitely want to come back again in the near future.
