I came to Austin in 1970 to go to UT, fell in love with Austin, and have lived here ever since. I have lived in my house for 21 years and watched this city grow all around me.

Mike Beisman purchased this house in 1971

I raised my daughters in this house and both graduated from Austin High. One graduated from UT and the youngest will graduate from Colorado this year. Kids are gone now, I tease them about renting out their room.

Home away from home

A couple of friends and I were looking for a place to stay during SXSW last min and found Mike's spot. It was the BEST option we could of choose. We were running late because of traffic and Mike gave us driving instructions to avoid downtown traffic. He also had everything available at the house many things I brought for the trip I didn't need because everything was int the house. Mike let us of local diner which was excellent and the whole foods which was walking distance. The house was in perfect distance from the main sxsw attractions on 6th street. Looking to come back again next year!! A++

Perfect House

Four of us (two couples) stayed in this house for a weekend while we attended a friend's wedding over the weekend. Mike waited for us (9 pm arrival) at the house to give us the keys and a tour of the house. He really made us feel like the house was our home for the weekend. The location was great for walking, or was a short cab ride to anywhere we wanted to go. There's a 24-hour diner (among other restaurants) and Whole Foods two blocks away, and the state capitol and Texas Roller Derby (Palmer Events Center) are about 15 minute walks (in different directions).

The house has a full-sized refrigerator and w/d, stove, coffeemaker, toaster, microwave, pots and pans, and cable tv; basically, the house has pretty much everything you'd need.

We would definitely consider renting this house again if we ever make it back to Austin, and would recommend to anyone traveling there.

Great House in the middle of Downtown

We rented Mike's house for a wedding we were attending. The house is tucked away, quite and private, in the middle of downtown. The house was super cozy, extremely clean, and very comfortable. Wholefoods was just down the street and it is walking distance to most everything. Mike was awesome, he recommended great places to eat and things to do. We will defiantly rent again on our next trip to Austin.

Great House for Downtown Austin Getaway or Festival

6 of us rented Mike's house for Austin City Limits and it was perfect for walking to the festival and then taking advantage of 6th street afterwards. We rented south of Zilker last year and unanimously preferred Mike's location. The walk is on pretty flat terrain and last year we had to deal with a big hill!

We also found out about a surprise Franz Ferdinand show through Twitter and probably wouldn't have been able to go if we weren't so close to downtown.

House was very clean with plenty of clean towels and sheets for 6 people! We are considering renting again.

We had a great time spending last weekend in this cozy cottage. We decided to get a place that was close to ACL with a short walk to Zilker...so much better than having to find parking! There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. The house is cute, clean, and conveniently located. Mike is a great host (super sweet) and made suggestions on several close restaurants. I would recommend this home away to anyone. We will definitely be back!
