Description

The space

This 2 bedroom/ 1 bath home is a converted courthouse that is over 100 years old and was moved from Lincoln, Texas to Austin's Eastside about 10 years ago. Simple, chic, central, and completely comfortable for @ 6-ish people, this home boasts 13 foot ceilings, an amazing claw foot tub and a huge wrap around porch and a recently updated kitchen.

Great for entertaining, this open concept space has a beautiful kitchen that was just updated in January 2017, two bedrooms (one with a king sized bed & one with a queen), a queen sized sofa bed in the living room, and twin sized couch that sleeps one... plus one double sized aero bed. Enjoy a huge bathroom with washer and dryer & fabulous linens and pillows.

Our Eastside property is only blocks away from some of the hippest new restaurants, bars, foodtrucks, coffee shops and retail stores in Austin. A hop, skip and a jump from Downtown, 6th street, the Eastside farmers market, University of Texas, and the State Capital, this house is in an amazingly central location and conveniently located near the new Metro Rail.

We are walking distance from all Eastside Austin SXSW shows & events and close proximity to Formula One. The wrap around porch is great for spending time outdoors.

This amazing property is a great place to spend the week for SXSW or for family get togethers. Austin summers are unbeatable and this quaint and unique home is a great way to get away from it all.

We stayed at Aimee and Daniel's place so we could attend a conference in Austin and also have somewhere for my husband to hang out with our 7 month old during the day. Their place was perfect for both needs and our little one loved all the colourful furniture and the chance to have a base from which to explore Austin which was more than a hotel room. There was plenty of nice eateries around to satisfy all of us and convenience stores enabling us to stock up on nappies only a walk away. The place was bigger than expected, had everything we needed and provided the right home away from home feel we needed.

Awesome! Beautifully decorated and furnished house in a leafy neighbourhood just a short walk from some great restaurants and bars. I stayed here for SXSW and it was a dream!

Unique home in super quiet neighborhood. Easy drive to everything but we also enjoyed walking around and exploring. House has true character and is refreshing contrast to blander options. Easily slept 2 adults and 4 small children. Kids loved the yard and porch.

The place was exactly as described! It was very nice and clean, and Aimee & Daniel gave me all the info I needed. My stay was very easy, no hassles at all. Also the house is near a bike share station so riding around Austin was easy and fun!

Very accurate description of the house, lots of character and charm! Great location for East of Austin being in walking distance to some great bars and restaurants- slightly further walk into downtown than expected but very pleasant on a nice sunny day. We did this several times. House had everything we needed and more, with a huge bathroom. Loved it and would definitely return!
