Interaction with Guests
I am happy to offer Austin recommendations specifically tailored to your interests. A week before your arrival, I will be in touch to provide check in directions.
East Austin is a diverse, hip area full of unique bars, restaurants, and shops. Andrew and I have lived here since 2005 and can't imagine living anywhere else in town (we actually did for a hot second, but came back as soon as we could!). The Cesar Chavez/2nd Street neighborhood is a rapidly changing area. It's a fantastic mix of new and old businesses, long-time residents and recent arrivals. Here, you'll see folks sitting on their front porches, bbq-ing in their backyards, walking their dogs, or riding their bikes. Wave and say 'howdy' - you're in Texas!
Though this location is quite walkable to many Austin hotspots, Austin is also a very easy city to get around. Rent a bike from a B-Cycle station, ride the Capital Metro, or take an Uber or Lyft. If you're out on East 6th or Rainey, you can also grab a pedicab to take you home at the end of the night.

HOUSE RULES -
No parties, no loud music, no smoking inside the house. Only the number of guests you reserved should be at the house - any number over is considered a party. Austin's noise ordinance states no loud activity after 10:30pm. Please be respectful of our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum after that time - especially while in the backyard.
Smoking outside is fine, but please dispose of all cigarettes in the outside trash cans before you leave. If the house smells like smoke, you will be charged the security deposit.
Wine, beer, coffee, and tea are provided for you. Please be respectful.
Very simple check out guidelines are provided in the Welcome Packet - we ask that you follow these before checking out of the house. We will claim the security deposit for any excessive cleaning (if the cleaning crew requires more than 3 hours).
If any violations of these house rules occur, you will owe the full deposit.
Thank you and enjoy your stay.
Although this was our first time to Austin Krystal and the accomodation far exceeded anything we expected. The house was amazing, had everything we needed and easily catered for our group of five. Krystals personalised recommendations note was helpful and provided us with plenty of local gems.
Would definitely stay here again. Loved Austin and Krystal helped more than we could ask for.
Crystal's beautiful home was exactly as the description and pictures promised it would be. The house was spacious and clean and well appointed with lots of thoughtful touches. We used uber to get around, which was easy and efficient, as nothing was more than 15 minutes away. After exploring during some pretty hot August days, we looked forward to returning to our comfy and cool house. I highly recommend Crystal's place if you're heading to Austin.
Exactly as described! I was pleasantly surprised by the cold beers waiting for me in the fridge! Thanks again!
When my 7 friends and I walked into the house for a bachelorette weekend we were incredibly impressed with the house the second we walked in! Crystal's home is beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. She has a great pay it forward policy so there was beer and some snacks already in the fridge that we were able to have. The house was very clean and had everything you could possibly need (bathroom products, hair dryers, cooking supplies and more). The location was perfect for us...close enough, but far enough from 6th street which is where we spent a lot of time. Crystals restaurant recommendations were great as well as the other bar and coffee shop recommendations she had in our welcome packet. Overall we had a perfect weekend at the home and would not change anything. Thank you Crystal for making our trip so easy and a home away from home!
We had a great stay here! The house was so cozy and clean. It felt like being at home. The neighborhood was great, with lots of local bars and restaurants nearby and great proximity to other areas of Austin. The house had all the amenities we needed (and more!). Crystal communicated with us quickly and effectively, and she was a great host!
From the time we reserved the space, Crystal was so helpful with our stay with recommendations for restaurants, attractions and things to do with our children. I was so surprised to find things like a coffee grinder and French press even! The place was fresh, clean and felt like home. We had all amenities we needed including a refreshing beverage when we walked in. Cool restaurants were right down the street or a short drive away, and by having separate bedrooms, we could put the kids to sleep and still enjoy our evenings together. we were even able to serve appetizers to my brother and his family when they stopped by--all because of Crystal's finishing touches--of even having serving trays for guests! This rental is truly a gem--I cannot say enough good things about this rental, but more importantly, how Crystal made us feel. I would recommend this place highly to anyone!
This house was even better than the pictures...plenty of space for eight of us to stay comfortably on a bachelorette trip. The neighborhood was a short can ride away from both Sixth and Rainey St. and having a fully stocked kitchen was wonderful! Crystal was a lovely hostess, and thought of every detail from beer in the fridge to bathrobes in the bathroom (which, by the way are incredible). Nobody wanted to leave the house at the end of the weekend! Thanks Crystal :)

About the Host, Crystal
Andrew and I live in Austin, TX. When we travel, we look for boutique hotels and well-appointed vacation rentals in the heart of the city. We like being steps away from the hottest restaurants and cocktail bars. We've decorated our vacation rentals to reflect these tastes and provide you with a cozy, chic home away from home!
