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.
We thoroughly enjoyed this adorable home. Very convenient location in Market district. Plenty to do within walking distance, including restaurants, shopping and Whole Foods. The home was a great landing place at the end of the day on our adventures! Kitchen nicely stocked, newer washer and dryer and comfortable beds. Home was very clean and Mike was a very gracious host. The only downside given the nature of our trip was the immediate vicinity. The home is off a narrow street and surrounded by businesses and storage units. We used Uber often, and since it was just the two of us traveling, felt uncomfortable getting picked up/dropped off at home due to location. So, we remedied by using Clark's restaurant just around the corner as pickup/drop-off. I'd highly recommend this property based on convenient location and helpful and responsive owner.
Mike ws such a welcoming host and gave great local recommendations (we went to Clark's every day!). The home itself is very privately nestled on an unassuming street, and within walking distance to so many amazing sites, restaurants, and the best Whole Foods I've ever been in. Thank you again for opening up your home to us during ACL!
This was a perfectly situated spot. It is quiet, and was so conveniently located. It's about 3 blocks from the original Whole Foods. The house had everything an out of town traveler would need. The owner is as generous and welcoming, and helped out with recommendations on restaurants and nearby places. I would rent this house in a second if we go back to Austin.
We were canceled on after traveling across the state for our trip over Labor Day and were in a bind for a place to stay. Mike was the best thing that could have happened to keep our trip from falling apart. He got us in incredibly quickly, which is even more impressive with how little warning we gave him. The house was perfect: excellent location, great sleeping arrangement for our group of 5, and very clean - everything we needed and more. I cannot think of a single complaint anyone in the group had!
I have booked through Air BnB, VRBO, found last minute hotels, etc., but Mike blew all those away in terms of customer service. I can't reiterate how thankful we are for his flexibility. He truly salvaged our vacation, and turned a headache into a relaxing experience.
Downtown Austin private home 2 blocks from Whole Foods, great for SXSW, ACL, F1, within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars, live music venues, Zilker Park, Hike and Bike Trails, Barton Springs and Deep Eddy, and the Colorado River.
