Beautiful home only 2 miles from classic East Sixth bars like Coyote Ugly. Easy to ride bike to downtown, close enough to walk back if needed. There are many bus stops within a couple blocks to take you anywhere in town including the metro rail (1.5 mi from metro rail). Easy access to downtown and many bars spreading east. Over 15 bars/restaurants in 1.5 miles. Great location for festivals, fun, seeing the city, or getting to and from the airport (only 6.2 miles to AUS airport).
Other Things to Note
There are cats at the house. They mainly stay to the master bed and outdoors. If you only have light allergies, they should not bother you, as you won't have them in your room or have much chance to interact with them.
If you are highly allergic, I'm afraid you may want to look somewhere else.
There is also a chinchilla in a more localized area, but they are supposedly hypoallergenic. Their dust may make someone allergic if they play with him though.
I've stayed in airbnb's with friends abroad, so this is my first time doing it for myself, as well in the US. I hadn't been to Austin in a couple of years, and even then I hadn't done the city justice.
Mathew's home is cozy and perfect. We found everything as it was in his description and his home is very clean. My friends absolutely adore pets, so the cats and the chinchilla were an absolute delight. His roommates were really pleasant too. We all felt very comfortable.
I contacted the host on pretty short same day notice and he got back to me very quickly and made sure I could get in when I was ready! Matthew was super awesome and helpful too!
The description was accurate. Matthew had everything set up well for my friends and I. The neighbourhood was safe, and the tenant was present to welcome us and answer any tourist like queries.
There was a real Mi Casa Su Casa feel, I'd certainly recommend staying at this accommodation.
I felt very welcomed when I first came into the home. I was greeted by one of Mathew's friends. She was quite kind, for which I was thankful. I enjoyed my 2-day stay. While the bathroom was not private, that was not an issue. Mathew's roommates were respectful. All in all, it was a great experience!
Room was spacious and clean. Great resting place while on our road trip. Hosts were friendly and professional.
We didn't meet Mathew because we got to Austin at 6am and then slept till about 2-3pm, showered and left. The place was perfect for what we needed, a safe place to sleep once we arrived and shower before we left. Id definitely return if I ever find myself going back to Austin.
Our stay with Matt was great. The room is clean and quiet, and you do have your own personal space. It's a bit far from downtown, but certainly walkable during the day if you don't have a car. We felt welcome and as if we did not interfere with their personal space, and they didn't interfere with ours.

About the Host, Mathew
I know a bit about the Austin area, but it seems there is always more. I love reading, hanging out, going down town, kayaking, and having a good time. I also enjoy yard work and keeping up with the house, doing maintenance and trying to improve it. I'm a software consultant and spend a lot of my time in the technical industry.
My free time goes towards being outside, finding new things to do in Austin, taking advantage of the free music, arts, and events here, and rock climbing.
