My girlfriend and I were traveling through Austin and stayed here for two days during the week and had a blast! The "Guest Cottage" was extremely clean, comfortable, and the check-in/check-out process was a breeze. That along with the awesome recommendations that is left for guests made renting this place over a hotel a no-brainer. However, it is in a "hipster" area of Austin if that matters to anyone. Right next door is a good bar w/ live music (Stay Gold) and down the street are some good eats. And it is no more than a 5-10min. uber to downtown and 6th street. I would recommend this place for a couple or small group visiting Austin. It is just far enough outside of downtown were it is calm and peaceful but just close enough to where you can access all that Austin has to offer.
Crystal was a perfect host - very helpful, timely with responses, and sweet. She wrote a lengthy list of activities, places to go, the best food spots, and what to do where. I would definitely recommend her place to a friend!
We found our apartment to be really comfortable, with everything you could want for a stay. A real home from home. Crystal was a very attentive host, keen to help out in any way and quick to respond to any correspondence. The apartment is well situated for easy bus access to downtown and local bars/dining. The apartment is fully equipped and the a/c was fantastic! We would highly recommend staying here. Thanks again Crystal, you helped make our stay from Scotland a great one!
the house is very cozy, and near the downtown. I love it, the bed is very comfy, clean/
Crystals place is great for a large group of people. We were in town for our son's wedding and the room setup is perfect. Crystal did a great job of getting back to us when we had questions, she even left us some wine and beer to enjoy on arrival.
When we return to Austin we will definately consider staying here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Crystal's guest cottage. It was clean, charmingly decorated, and extremely comfortable. We appreciated all the extras that Crystal leaves for renters (no need to pack a hairdryer!). We also appreciated rapid responses to questions and the check-in booklet with a tailored list of local recommendations. The bedroom windows get some noise from the nearby bars, but it was easily blocked with earplugs. Strongly recommend!
Crystal was terrific in preparing us for her apartment. It was exactly as advertised. A great location. The kitchen was fully equipped with wine and beer awaiting us. Everything worked as it should. We would not hesitate to return.

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!
