Welcome to the heart of the East Side! We would describe our bungalow as traditional meets mid-century meets Marfa (with color!). The neighborhood has taken quite a boom recently and getting anywhere in town is quite easy by bike, car, bus (the bus stop is 1.5 blocks away) or cab. You'll find all of the popular East Side and downtown hangouts nearby!
The house is ideal for a weekend getaway. The living space and kitchen are designed as one room with a vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has all you will need (including Le Creuset / All Clad pots and pans) to cook at home. Both bedrooms have really comfortable beds. There is a large porch on the side of the house and is a perfect place to have a cup of coffee in the morning or a nice glass of wine in evening.

Interaction with Guests
As little or as much as you're comfortable with! We love interacting with guests and see Airbnb as a personal experience for both guests and hosts alike. At times we will stay in our renovated Airstream which is on the property, but this is typically only during the week if at all. We are more than happy to share a beer with you and give you inside tips on what to do in this amazing city!
The East Side is one of the hottest places to be in Austin these days. The neighborhood is rapidly changing and lots of hot spots are just around the corner!
Bus Stops are conveniently 1.5 blocks from the house. We are finding Uber and Lyft to be a convenient and affordable mode of transportation given our close proximity to downtown.
No smoking inside please. This is our home so please be respectful of the space and neighbors. Please leave the home in the same condition you found it.
Most importantly, HAVE FUN and contact us should you need anything.
What a great experience I had staying at Chris and Steven's place...a relaxing, remarkably tidy space to enjoy my time in, really charming decor and very comfy accommodations, and meeting my hosts made the visit even more memorable. An added plus is how much fun the neighborhood is - and so centrally located to everyplace I needed to go. I wouldn't hesitate to book a stay here on my future Austin trips. Thanks for such an enjoyable time.
I can't say enough about this house & it's hosts! Nicely appointed home with beautiful decor, easily accessible to anything you want to do around town & less than 30min from Lake Travis, with only a quick hop to the airport! We were in town with another couple for a wedding & it was lovely to come
back at the end of our daily celebrations and relax in the comfort of this 'East Side Charmer' :)
Steven & Chris's house was just the perfect spot for me and my two college girlfriends' trip to Austin. It is a very beautiful, clean, and indeed charming house. You can tell they put a lot of care into all the details and it really translates, makes you feel right at home. Though we were out painting the town red most of the time we were so happy we had our East Side Charmer to lay our heads down and regroup for our next adventure. The beds are HEAVENLY, can't say enough about that! Everything was smooth with our check-in and check-out, overall it was all very seamless thanks to Steven and Chris's looking out. The best part about it is the location, we always ended up down at the bars that are down on East 6th Street, White Horse Forever!
The home was absolutely charming and welcoming. A perfect abode for our three night stay in Austin. Chris and Steve made everything simple and accessible. Highly recommend.
This was my first airbnb experience and it honestly was perfect. The house was just as described and more stunning in person. So charming and cozy! Steven and Chris were great hosts and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. If I'm every in Austin again I would definitely stay here
Steven and Chris's place was absolutely adorable and a great home base for a couples weekend in Austin. The Jack-and-Jill bathroom worked out for everyone. The memory foam toppers on the beds were nice. The boys got a bit of use out of the coffee maker and were grateful it was there for use. The porch was also very nice to hang out on since it was an oddly beautiful January weekend. Overall we had a great time. Thanks!
Steven and Chris' place was amazing! It is beautiful and comfortable (particularly the amazing King bed)! They were wonderful with communication.

We've lived in Austin for 6 years now and couldn't be more happy here. We absolutely LOVE our home - It's our favorite place to be and enjoy sharing it with others because it's truly a special place. Nearly everything inside means something to us which is what makes a home a home I suppose!
We tend to travel West a lot these days for some reason. So we'll likely be in our Vanagon Westfalia out in the desert somewhere while you're enjoying the place.
It's a good life....Steven and Chris
