Julie was an excellent host! Very communicative, very helpful and informative about everything available in East Austin. The house comes prepared with a little guidebook telling the guest the best and closest services and even has some tips for getting around.
But the house -- stunning! The backyard alone is a dreamy wonderland that makes this space worth three times what it costs! The whole house is actually much more spacious than it looks in the photos. Very comfortable beds and all the appliances/amenities you'll ever need.
Location can't be beat. In a city that can sometimes feel (to an East-Coaster like myself) as sprawling as LA we managed to walk everywhere we needed in less than 15 minutes.
Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to everyone!
Julie was a fabulous host. She answered all of our questions promptly, let us know all sorts of insider info on the area around the house, and was kind enough to leave the house stocked with tea, coffee and miscellaneous essentials. The house was adorable, and 5 of us stayed there very comfortably. One of the best features was the incredible back yard! We definitely spent some quality time out there. We even picked a few kumquats from the tree one morning. Also....because traffic can be bad in Austin, location is very important, and Julie's house is situated perfectly for efficient access to all the new hot spots on the East Side, and it only took a few minutes to get downtown. Highly recommend Julie and her beautiful house.
We were thrilled with our accommodation in east Austin!The house was absolutely perfect and we found ourselves staying in way more than (website hidden) many nice touches like the snacks and beverages,the girls were very happy to find a straightener as well as hairdryer,the air mattress was massive and comfortable,kitchen well equipped and the neighbours helpful!Location was great for downtown,Rainey St bars,6th st and cute cafes for coffee.Thankyou for a great stay!
Everything in the house was much better than what the photos portrayed! Julie & her husband attended to an issue in the bathroom unobtrusively and promptly. Love the area, since it's so walkable! Will consider staying here the next time I'm in Austin!
Great house, great location, great host. Julie has everything set up to make life easy, even entry into the property. I will definitely be back. Thanks Julie
Our family gathered from Boston, Philly, and Chicago to visit our youngest who live in the neighborhood. When we arrived the house was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was stocked with local beer, organic coffee beans (and multiple kinds of cream for it),TopoChico, and munchies. The beds are really comfortable and the shower is fantastic! Our family likes to cook feasts when we get together, and this kitchen worked really well. It was a great house to hang out in, too. The neighborhood is very quiet and incredibly close to downtown Austin, the airport, and yummy local eateries. Really, the location can't be beat. Thanks so much, Julie, for being such a gracious and responsive host!
The East Downtown House was perfect and exactly like the photos. Juile was a wonderful host! The house is conveniently located. We walked everywhere and checked out local restaurants, juice bars and coffee shops! After exploring the city, we enjoyed relaxing in the backyard. The snacks and Topo Chico that Julie left for us hit the spot! This house was the perfect home away from home. I would definitely stay there again!

About the Host, Julie
I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring the new restaurants, galleries and stores in Austin, and traveling.
People would often tell me that our house is like an oasis right in the middle of Austin, and then jokingly ask if they could come stay on vacation. So we decided to start renting our house when we traveled. We want people staying at our house to be able to enjoy all the things about our house and neighborhood that we love - the serenity while being in the middle of the city, walking or biking to downtown and Ladybird Lake, the unique mix of high end restaurants and local Tex-Mex dives, and a thriving music and artist community.
