My husband and I spent 3 nights in Studio Azul. We had a lovely time in Austin and enjoyed Casa Kenwood as our home away from home. This is for sure a funky place, which was exactly what we were looking for while staying in Austin. Although it is located in a neighborhood, the location was very close and convenient to all of the things we wanted to do in the city via car. We had a few minor issues with booking the room. We were originally booked to stay in another room, but it turned out it was already booked. The owner offered us this room at a discount. I appreciated the issue being worked out so nicely and efficiently. Communication was open and easy.
Overall the room was huge and had a lot of personality. The grounds were beautiful as well, however, it was beyond hot and we did not spend much time outside. I loved having a full fridge and a kitchen. The owner was easily available via text and I loved having a code on the door rather than having to remember a key. My only complaint with the room was the sheer curtains. While they give the room a nice blue hue, they can be looked through. We saw a guest look through while they were on their way to their room. My husband went outside to see and you can for sure see through the curtains and into the room. I would just suggest adding an extra layer of the curtains or getting different curtains altogether.
We would recommend Casa Kenwood to anyone looking for a unique place to stay in Austin.
