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 on the porch.
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.
Property was well appointed and clean. Crystal provided excellent communication and recommendations for things to do in the area as well. Thanks for a great stay Crystal.
Such a great place to stay! Seamless entry with the electronic keypad and great communication. The unit itself is great with hardwood floors, spacious kitchen and nice amenities like the washer, dryer and dishwasher. It's in such a cool location! Three trendy, local bars are a stone's throw away and it's a 5 minute drive into downtown. It's close to the east side of 6th street, as well. Thanks, Crystal for a great stay!
Totally great place to spend a few days. Close to restaurants and bars, all the comforts of home are there and ready to go for you, which was great.
This apartment felt like home with every convenience including chefs kitchen with dishwasher and washer/dryer. The decor was fresh, clean and light. Everything needed for an enjoyable stay was provided, the host even supplied beer and wine!
Previous guests mentioned the noise from the bar next door. The music was loud, but I was still able to tune out the drumming base and fall asleep every night without difficulty.
Crystal's apartment is absolutely perfect! She has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and fun! Crystal left us loads of recommendations and information which was really helpful! The location is excellent - some really funky bars/restaurants right next door and you can get downtown in an uber in 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend Crystal's apartment!
The cottage was very clean and looked just like the pictures. Location was good and it was very nice to have a designated parking spot. Crystal was very responsive whenever I contacted her, and her recommendations in the welcome packet were great! I Highly recommend the place for anyone looking to spend a weekend in Austin. :)
Check in was very easy, and the cottage was even nicer than the description showed. The living room was comfortable and bright, the bed was big and soft, and the kitchen was surprisingly well-equipped. The bathroom was spacious and had some thoughtful small toiletries for guests to use. The reserved parking space is a big plus, and there were things to do right down the street. An exceptional AirBNB!

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!
