About this listing
Perfect location for SXSW, and set up to handle a young baby. If you don't have a baby we have a double bed we can set up in the 2nd room. Near great restaurants, bars and E. 6th St.
Come stay in our new home in the heart of East Austin. One mile from downtown. Three blocks from East 6th Street's bars, restaurants and food trailers. Stone's throw from The Lost Well, Gourmand's, Salt & Time, and Joe's Bakery & Mexican Food. This is a perfect East-side location for SXSW.
We have two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and one big open room downstairs. Since we have a 6-month-old baby, we are totally set up if you are traveling with a baby. If you don't have a baby we can set up the baby room to accommodate a full grown adult.
Between both the bedrooms, two pullout couches, and a remarkably comfortable air mattress, you can sleep 4-7 if you don't mind packing them in. Two showers upstairs and a third bathroom downstairs, so plenty of room to primp. Kitchen is well stocked to cook and we've got a great charcoal grill on the patio.
We just moved in about a year ago and this place is brand new. Five-star green energy rating and thick windows which filter out noise from the outside. Driveway fits two cars with more room on the street. $20 cab ride from the airport.
We don't have cable, but we have a big flat screen in the main bedroom that you can hook up to a computer.
Our neighborhood has a great East Austin vibe. We are walking distance from tons of great bars and restaurants.
20-30 minute walk from downtown, or a quick ride on the bus.
No smoking inside. Please don't trash the place.
If you're looking for a great place while in Austin/SXSW look no further. Mike and Crystal's place was perfect for our group of 4. Plenty of space and super close to downtown. The patio outside gives you great privacy for business meetings with a nice ambience. We had a great time and would always go back here! Thank you Mike, Thank you Crystal
We loved our stay at Mike and Crystal's East Austin home! It's really well located to downtown -- just a few minutes by Car2Go or Uber -- and provided a nice retreat from the craziness of SXSW. It's very cute, too, in a very Austin manner. Pictures don't do it justice! Mike was also very helpful whenever we needed him, and provided some great food recs too (go to Gourmands down the street!). We'd definitely stay here again.
Awesome place and awesome host! Mike was very easy to get ahold of when needed, and did a great job making us feel welcome. The place is very clean and comfortable. Hope to come back sometime!
I really liked staying in this neighborhood. The house was clean and comfortable. New restaurants and bars are popping up in this neighborhood constantly it seems like- was nice to be able to try some of them and still be able to walk to some of the places we frequent more often.
I used their house to book lodging for my company's Sales reps during SXSW. Mike and Cyrstal were so easy to work with and I heard nothing but great things from the reps that stayed!
