HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

This charming 3BR/2BA home in the heart of 78704 is literally blocks from award-winning restaurants, cafes, music venues, bars & more. It's historic and very South Austin in vibe but with new furnishings, beds & more.

Situated on Bouldin Creek with 100-year oak trees on the property, tile & wood floors in the home to keep cool in the Austin heat, modern amenities like Wi-fi & new Roku TV, but still funky enough to give you that 78704 feel you're looking for in this unique part of Austin.

Great location and very neat space! Walkable to everything on South Congress, and an easy motorized scooter or lime bike ride back from the bars downtown (spoken from experience). Parking on the road is plentiful and the neighborhood is very nice. I didn’t feel uneasy or anxious …

To be clear, the number of beds and thorough descriptions of the sleeping spaces and even the size of the various beds are in the listing. :) It's a 3-bedroom house with beds in each room and also includes a sleeper sofa.

A great location and you can’t beat the price. You are getting acceptable digs that will meet your needs. This is not an Airbnb boutique experience, but totally functional.

Response from Matthew:
You nailed it, Michelle. Not aiming at a boutique experience here, and I try to make that clear in my listing. It's a real South Austin home that's a great price for its location in the city.
