About Jason Martin

I'm 32 and I work in health care. I love Austin! I have been here all my life and I am still always finding new exciting things to do!

Jason Martin purchased this house in 2013

Why Jason Martin chose Austin

I fell in love in this house when I first saw it. It's the perfect getaway while still located with walking access to all that downtown Austin has to offer. It's also blocks from up and coming entertainment areas like Rainey Street and East 6th Street.

What makes this house unique

This home sleeps 18 people comfortably, while still having the option to walk downtown. These benefits make it the perfect, reasonably priced vacation rental for a group of any size spending a majority of their vacation downtown or in central Austin.

Austin Vacation

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and I wanted to get together in Austin for a reunion and thought it would be a much better experience to rent a house rather than stay in a hotel. It was a great decision. The house was really close to Rainey Steet and 6th street. When we arrived the house was very clean and everything was in working order. There was more than enough space to accommodate our large group, and Jason was a wonderful host. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great location for a group looking to be in downtown Austin

  • 5 of 5
A group of guys stayed here for the UT game. Easy access to 6th street, Rainey Street, UT stadium -- all either walking distance or a couple minute cab. Jason was very easy to work with, made the whole process very simple, and had great suggestions for us during our stay. We enjoyed the grill and beerpong tables, although I'd ask Jason to maybe get new bags for cornhole. The house was clean, and was everything as advertised. Definitely recommend!

Great Spot for foodies/bar goers

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with 12 friends. We were all interested in the food/night scene in Austin, and we had a great time. This place is centrally located, the AC works very well, and easily accommodates large groups. The check in/out process was simple and easy, as was handling the rental transaction. Highly recommended! Thanks Jason!

Great place to stay in Austin

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a weekend for a bachelor party, and we all had a great time. The house was great, and a short walk to Rainey St. We really enjoyed having a grill and beer pong tables. The owner was also responsive and accommodated us for a late check out.

Owner's Response: Jinwoo, Thank you for your feedback! Glad to know you guys had a awesome time in Austin.

I wanted to take a second, in an effort to help future Guests viewing this review, to mention that check-in and checkout times are VERY strict. Typically 4pm check-in and 11am checkout. In this case I was able to accommodate Jinwoo and his group for a fee (typically $100/hr). These types of accommodations are not guaranteed unless worked out with me 30 days in advance.

If you are a future Guest and have questions about this, please feel free to reach out! I hope to host you and your group and help you have as awesome of a time in Austin that Jinwoo did.

Thanks again Jinwoo!

Austin, I barely knew ya

  • 5 of 5
We had a bachelor party in town from the NE. The house was great. The location was the key because transporting a group is difficult. This house allowed us to walk to Rainey St with no issues. The house was clean, great layout and the games in the yard were perfect. The neighbors were nice and I would recommend this house to anyone. Jason did a great job setting everything up for us. Thank you.
