Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying at Crystal's place was the perfect accommodation for our visit to Austin. The cottage is centrally located and was perfect for two people. We loved the modern kitchen, lounging on the couch, and found the bed very comfortable. Crystal was very quick with all communication and offered some great suggestions on where to go and eat in town. I'd be happy to stay here again next time I'm in Austin!

  • Crystal's apartment is super super cute and close to downtown plus some of our favorite places on the East Side. (I loved the fluffy bathrobes too!) You can walk or take a really cheap uber to pretty much any place downtown or South Congress.
    She also leaves wonderful personal recommendations (like BBQ) and our fridge had great local beverages. I would definitely recommend this place to any of my friends coming to Austin!

  • We had a great experience with Crystal's apartment! It was super clean and tidy upon arrival, and was very well-equipped, with a washer and dryer, cooking/cleaning supplies, and even beer and wine :) The apartment was in a good location with easy access to downtown and local biking trails. Crystal was (email hidden) and made sure we had everything we needed. I fully recommend this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Austin!

  • Very nice little apartment. Stylish, comfortable, well equipped and provisioned. Cute little deck for a late afternoon beer. Terrific neighborhood: short walk to wide variety of restaurants, bars, shops, as well as easy access to downtown, relatively short drive to airport.

    Crystal was extraordinarily responsive and helpful, going so far as to stock the apartment with beer and wine, and provide lots of recommendations for places all over Austin.

    One should have no hesitation about renting here.

  • Crystal was a great hostess! There was a welcome pack upon arrival with recommendations for everything I could think of and beer in the fridge! The cottage was clean, tidy and really comfortable. It was in a nice neighbourhood and was only a short walk to the nightlife on 6th street. Crystal was very easy to communicate with and kept in touch throughout the stay which was extremely comforting. Great hostess, lovely cottage and would recommend to everyone!

  • This (email hidden) to stay while in Austin. The guest cottage is exactly as described and as seen in the pictures. Crystal exudes hospitality. Could not be more pleased with our first experience booking through Airbnb.

  • Our stay at the cottage was brief, but AWESOME :-) It was our first time doing the Airbnb thing and we'll definitely do it again. Our visit was more of a "stay"cation, so we were familiar with the area. I highly recommend Crystals' cottage if you're a local or from out of town B-)

  • Crystal was very responsive and she came to our apt immediately when we had trouble with our door pass code to fix it. The apt itself is very cute and has literally everything you need (toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, detergent, lotion, food, alcohol, etc)! It's closeby to 6th street, congress, and Rainey st - I highly recommend staying here!

    June 2014
  • Crystal's place was everything my parents were looking for! Super clean, stocked with wine and beer from previous guests, a perfect home away from home. They had everything they needed and will for sure be staying there next time they visit! She makes contact through text message to make sure the entry and exit are smooth. Beautiful, clean place :)

    May 2014
  • Crystal was very responsive, helpful and flexible from the get go. She provided great local recommendations for restaurants and a fridge stocked with drinks. The apartment was awesome and in a great location!

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!
