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 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.
Our stay at Forrest's house was nothing short of perfect! I was in Austin for a conference at the convention centre and the house was located less than 5 minutes away from the city centre. All of the bedrooms were nicely sized and were spaced out so everyone enjoyed their privacy. Check in and check out were a breeze. I would stay here again in a second. Thanks Forrest and Emily!
We really enjoyed our stay in Forrest's lovely house. It is very clean and updated and comfortable. It is in a fun neighborhood and very accessible to restaurants and downtown. We really enjoyed being to walk down to the river (lake?) for a run, it's a great added bonus. Would definitely stay here again!
Forrest's house was as pictured and comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and in a great location. We appreciate the welcome binder with your suggestions of nearby food. Thanks for the hospitality!
