The neighborhood is great because it's so quiet and peaceful even though it's just a short bike ride to the heart of downtown. Some of the locals refer to it as "country in the city" because of it's peaceful nature. The area is quite hip and there is a ton of fun stuff to do and great places to eat and drink.
The public transit system is great. City Bus stops and the Metro Rail station are very close to the rental. The both provide excellent ways affordable to get around and see the city.

Forrest's home was the perfect place during our stay in Austin. The backyard is beautiful, the house is clean and equipped with all necessary amenities, and the neighborhood was great. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Austin!
We really enjoyed staying in this cute house. When we arrived really late from traveling there were exactly 3 beers in the fridge (and 3 of us at that time) and it was just what we needed. There was also coffee to make in the morning which was much appreciated! The neighborhood is really cute and it has some good food and markets in the area in walking distance...not to mention the park along the river just down the street. Forrest was also nice enough to let us do a late checkout on Sunday and store our bags at the house until 6pm when we were leaving for the airport. The house itself is cute, the bathrooms are very small but totally functional, the beds were comfortable and the backyard is huge and lovely...it's also basically a bird sanctuary back there.
Forrest's house worked out perfectly for our stay during SXSW; the location was convenient to downtown Austin and easily accessible. The house was very clean and nicely laid out and was just what we needed. Forrest made the check in and out process seamless. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely look to come back to this house next year!
The bungalow is a really beautiful and comfortable home to stay in! A colleague of mine and I stayed here while attending the SXSW Interactive conference this year, and it was a wonderful place to come home to after such long days. Forrest's communication was super quick and helpful, making checking in and out a breeze. It's a spacious and incredibly clean home in a quiet neighborhood a brisk walk or short cab ride to all the fun things Austin has to offer.
3 adult couples shared this space comfortably for a long weekend. After we arrived we realized the house had no hot water and Forrest was quick to communicate and get on the issue. It was fixed within an hour at most. We were so grateful he had the water fixed promptly and he even offered to come wait for the plumber if we had somewhere to be. Everything was perfectly appointed in the home. I would stay here again.
