Airport is a ten minute drive away! Both Downtown and East Side neighborhood restaurants and bars are within a short 5 to 15 minute walking distance from this house. There are also two Capital Metro bus lines that stop within a 5 minute walking distance.
Sorry, no dogs.
What a wonderful, wonderful place, hosted by the warmest folks you could imagine. Loved EVERYTHING about it. The location, the fantastic artwork, all the amenities you could ever need. Kitchen was especially wonderful.
We couldn't recommend it more!
I wish I could give more than five stars. This was my first time in Austin and my first Airbnb experience. I had a beyond wonderful stay in this lovely bungalow. The space is clean, quiet, and private. Very convenient to get to downtown Austin, and located in what ended up being my favorite part of town, East Austin. Tons of great bars and restaurants in the area. I will definitely stay here when I return to Austin in the future. Edie and Alberto were wonderful hosts, and gave great recommendations for restaurants and things to see and do when I needed it. They were very friendly, warm and welcoming. I can't recommend this bungalow enough!
What a sweet space! Tucked back behind the main house, a quiet, peaceful, light and airy casita sits. Very comfortable with everything you could need. Two big closets, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, attractive furnishings with blue and green accents, recycling, handy bathroom toiletries, cool bikes to head to the river or tool around the east side. It was all that. Well thought out to the last detail. The wi-fi was slow, and a possible suggestion would be to add a booster, but that would be my ONLY suggestion!
Edie and Alberto were welcoming and accommodating hosts, and I could have hung out a lot longer listening to their stories! Thank you for a most pleasant stay, and I am recommending you and your listing to anyone headed to Austin!
The place was great. I was more than pleased.
I don't even know where to start, but we had such an amazing time at Edie & Alberto's amazing bungalow. They were both very warm and sweet people, and you can feel that warmness dripping from the bungalow. It is a very comfy place to stay, and they have thought of everything! I mean EVERYTHING! from Tums to dental floss to basket of fruits to sleepy time tea etc.
They also have nice bikes which my fiance and I used everyday to get around town, and it worked out great! The location is also wonderful, with good places to eat and hang out in very close proximity. But also it was about 15 min bike ride to popping S. Congress area, and 10min to downtown areas.
My fiance and I both became a big fan of the charming couple Edie & Alberto. Because they were such a comfortable and down-to-earth people, they were there if you wanted to talk to them or ask them questions, but you can also have complete privacy if you wanted it (though that wasn't one of our concerns as we couldn't get enough of them).
so when you're in Austin, STAY HERE! You won't regret it. Since we didn't know the geography of Austin, we initially thought we should stay in downtown area, but SO GLAD we didn't. East Austin is an up and coming area with lots of exciting new places popping up, but it also retains the old culture, which makes it an interesting and charming place.
It was my first visit to Austin, and I really loved it. I think what made it a top notch experience for us was staying here- they have really carved out a paradise of a place, with their own hands.
This will definitely be the place that we'll come back to when we visit Austin in the future.
Thanks for everything, Edie & Alberto!!
6 stars, highly recommended! What a lovely place :) Photos don't do it justice. Spotlessly clean, super-comfortable, plenty of space, and everything you could possibly need. Well-outfitted kitchen, lots of goodies in the bathroom in case you forget anything. And bicycles!
Everything you could need is within walking or cycling distance, and we were so happy to have the bikes. Riding along the river is relaxing and fun, you don't even realize you're getting your daily exercise!
The bungalow's location is perfect to go out at night and check out all the amazing live music options in Austin, and comfortable and quiet to get back to.
Edie & Alberto are delightful, welcoming people, who really helped us settle in and feel at home in Austin.
The combination of welcoming, friendly hosts, and a beautiful, comfortable place to stay, made this possibly one of our favourite airbnb places so far!
Edie and Alberto were absolutely terrific hosts! We loved their sense of design which permeats the bungalow and the full property. They even invited us to their friends' New Year's Eve Party!
This is the second time I have stayed at this lovely house in Austin. The house is private, clean, has all modern comforts and is decorated with pieces of of art. It's close to the lake and things going on in East Austin. Edie made a list for us where to go for dinner/drinks in walking distance of the house, as downtown is a bit further away. Edie and her husband were waiting for us when we arrived and helped us park the big cargotrailer we travelled with in their driveway, so the equipment would be safe. At the time there was some construction going on at the house next door, but they didn't start very early so we weren't bothered by it. Definetely recommend this place and will come back next time I'm in Austin.
This is a great place to stay - the bungalow is in a quiet residential street 15 minutes walk from Rainey St and 20 from downtown. Lots of great eating options nearby.
The bungalow itself is at the back of the owners house, very quiet and private. Inside, it is very well fitted out and extremely comfortable - there are some nice personal touches as well.
Edie and Alberto are great hosts - friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The whole experience was hassle free and a great introduction to me and my friend to Airbnb.
Edie is a superb host. The bungalow was extremely home-y and it was always comforting to come home. Edie truly anticipates the needs of her guests by providing all the things you need and don't think to pack--like q-tips and aspirin. We used her bikes to get around town the entire stay and they worked great. She even gave us a ride back to the airport! All the while she was easy to be in touch with via text and it was great to catch up with her while going/coming . Edie is very sweet and I seriously hope to go back soon.
