Great location. Like all of the other reviews say Owner is very responsive. We had some items shipped to the house and the owner had them waiting for us. A great stay!

a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

- the house was comfortable and clean upon arrival

- only a short walk to Torchy's Tacos food truck and other great food

- $5-10 dollar uber's to east 6th street, rainey street / other downtown spots from the house even with surge pricing

- great communication by property owner...very helpful with additional info about the area to a bunch of guys from the north east on their first trip to Austin.

when considering price and location, I would find this spot to be hard to beat. wouldn't mind one bit staying here again in the future with another group. loved Austin!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Michael for the kind words. I enjoyed having y'all. You all were great. And thanks for the beer left in the fridge. I see you sampled one of our myriad of local micro-breweries, Austin Beer Works. They put out a darn good IPA. It's what my brother and I drank when he came to visit the previous month.

Great experience during sxsw 16

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 people and stayed in this place during SXSW. We had a great time there. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is big and clean. The owner has been really communicative before our arrival. We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Sylvain, your nice review, is very much appreciated. I am glad you had a good time in Austin. SXSW is one of the busiest times of the year. I enjoy living so close to downtown. I had a brief but pleasant conversation upon meeting your two friends/business associates in the front yard on your first day of SXSW.

Convenient location rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was located at a great central location.

Slept 6 in beds and another 4 on fold out couch and futon. Walking distance to food trucks outdoor area, and a few good restaraunts on the other side of a small walking trails park. House has two baths, make sure to keep track of towels with big group or ask for more. Owner was very informative and helpful with suggestions for activities in the area. No complaints about the stay or location. Be sure to ask for pillows, sheets, and blankets to accommodate size of party.

Clean, bright, centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

Kirk was a great host. He made me and 8 of my friends feel very welcome on our first time in Austin. The house is great, plenty of space for a large group, and is in an excellent area, close walking distance to the parks with music festivals, 6th street, and south congress.
