I'm very passionate about entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. My degree is in Architecture, however, I don't get to use it in my professional life. Revisioning this turn-of-the-century home was a dream come true. The remodel was to the highest possible standard, and completed with the thought, "where would I want to stay?"
*Pricing does not include hotel/motel tax which will be added
I stayed at Lyon's house with a group of 7 people. Lyon was super friendly, easy to deal with and gave us a lot of great recommendations for things to do in Austin. His house was beautiful, well maintained and had a lot of thoughtful touches (a steam sauna in the shower, a large variety of cups, shampoo/soap, snacks, etc.). It was plenty of space for our group! The house is well located near 6th street/Rainey street. It is walking distance on a nice day or in the case of cold/inclement weather (like we encountered) only a 5 minute cab ride away from these places. I definitely recommend staying at this property.
Our visit was fantastic. The house is gorgeous and immaculate. Lyon was incredibly hospitable, including great local recommendations and a well stocked home. He had thought of everything! I definitely hope to come back soon!
This was my first experience on airbnb and Its was awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better stay. When we arrived Lyon was kind enough to give us a rundown of the city and point out some local hot spots. The house was super clean and stocked well beyond my expectations, nicer then many of the hotels I have stayed in. If I am ever back in Austin I will make sure to book with Lyon.
My friends and I had a fantastic stay. Perfect house for our getaway weekend! Clean, super comfortable, and we really loved all the outdoor spaces. Plus our host was a real pleasure to work with.
Lyon's hospitality was outstanding. He greeted us and showed us around his amazing home. Lyon shared many valuable tips about Austin that made our stay much more interesting. Lyon has thought of everything needed to make a guest feel welcome, at home, and happy that they decided to rent a house. Each space in his home has been given much thought. It is so beautiful! This house is spacious, clean, beautifully designed and decorated. The side effect was that both of my teenagers came home and got rid of clutter in their rooms! I love it! Looking forward to our next stay!
Lyon's home is lovely. Excellent taste and very very comfortable. He was very helpful when we arrived, providing good explanations and advice about the home and the area. He lives just 2 doors away, so is available if anything came up, but at the same time, not intrusive in the slightest. Thanks for a wonderful trip and great memories
Lyon's home was relaxing, super clean, and had everything we needed for our five night stay. Lyon was incredibly friendly and offered many great suggestions for our stay.
We were 5 colleagues from Norway staying at Lyon's place during SXSW in 2013, and we had an amazing time. The place is located in maybe the best location of them all for being near the conference and city centre, and still it's in a very quiet and cozy neighborhood. It's walking distance from the convetion center and tons of great restaurants / bars.
Lyon was so kind to give us a ride to pick up bikes we could hire, which really improved our stay; it's great getting around by bike in Austin.
The house was perfect. Lyon got an eye for details, with snacks, drinks, comfortable beds, excellent steam showers, and a very clean house waiting for us.
Stay here if you get the chance! It will make you're Austin-experience a great one.
This house was a fantastic find. It looks somewhat modest from the front, but it is surprisingly large when you enter and Lyon has clearly put a lot of time and energy into the place. There are two outdoor deck areas and a large sun room, all of which were great for me and six of my friends to hang out and catch up during a mini college reunion. The master bedroom has its own outdoor access s well as a really nice steam room. The location was great, very close to lots of good E. Austin restaurants and bars and a 20 minute walk or so to the heart of downtown. Cabs were pretty easy to call as well. I highly recommend this house and will strongly consider returning on my next visit to Austin.
Had a great stay. Absolutely no complaints.
