About this listing
One Block off of South Congress with all that SOCO has to offer around the corner. The Continental Club, Hotel San Jose, Joe's Coffee, Amy's Ice Cream, Guerros, and Home Slice Pizza are a few blocks away. This is a private bedroom with a double bed and in suite bathroom. There are several patios and outdoor seating option as well.
The kitchen is available to guests any time. There is also Magnolia Cafe ( open 24hours) less than a block away.
High Speed WIFI and Cable TV available all the time.
Please see my other listings if you can't book the dates you are looking for here. I have two other nice private rooms available . There's plenty of room for everyone it's A four bedroom home.
Once you are settled into the house most things are accessible on foot. Down Town is about one mile. Taxis to D.T. are about $7 each way. There is also a bus stop less than a block from the house. The bus goes straight down Congress to 6th street, the Capital Bld, and UT Campus.
International guests are welcome. As a frequent traveler I have friends all over the world and know what it's like to be in a new country. I speak Spanish and get by in Mandarin Chinese
You can expect a great location, nice people and plenty to do with in walking distance. There are usually one or more international guests here and making friends is the best part.
I do have pets including a cat but she is either outside or down stairs and this room is up stairs.
1) Have fun, and use common sense. From my experience people are courteous and considerate when staying with me. I want people to be happy here and haven't found the need to lay down any specific rules. Guests here are given access to the front door anytime they want day or night so please just be quite if coming late. If you drive don't block the neighbors driveway etc. Just common sense stuff like that. So back to the first thing. Have Fun. Austin is great town to let your hair down in. There are more Restaurants bars and shops than you could see in a month near by. And you can walk to all of them if you don't mind using your feet. So enjoy!
Although we didn't get to meet Matt, he was extra helpful in the reservation process and choosing the right room for our weekend in Austin. The house is beautiful, well kept and perfectly located in the SOCO district. The room was VERY clean and comfortable...and we traveled with our 3 month baby. It met all of our expectations. We had a wonderful weekend!
Again Matt was very easy to deal with. Our accommodations were exactly as expected. Will definitely revisit his place when back in Austin.
The reservation was canceled 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Its a nice house, comfortable room, close to town and best of all the owner is a great guy.
I stayed at Matt's residence for one night. It is very convenient to South Congress and downtown Austin. The home itself is very comfortable and there was nothing lacking. I would stay at Matt's again if I was in the area.
Host was awesome. The water pressure is a little low so don't flush the toilet or anything before or during a shower. The room was okay.
This was our first trip and booking through AirBnB. We were very grateful that Matt was willing to allow first-timers stay with him. We unfortunately didn't meet him during our stay but has a great time while we were there! The house is beautiful and couldn't have been in a better location. There is a lot of nice art on the walls and the bookshelves have tons of interesting things to read. The house is right in a very fun part of south congress close to restaurants, bars and shopping. Plus it's very easy to get downtown or, if you have a car, to places outside of the city. Everything we needed was provided for us, there was a very nice kitchen that we didn't use but had all the things you'd need to cook. The room, while not exactly how it was pictured, was cute and perfect for us. The attached private bath was nice to have also. There were two very sweet kitties that we enjoyed having cuddle up with us when we were in the living room. Overall it was a great experience and Matt's home made it that much more comfortable for us first time visitors to Austin.

About the Host, SoCoBnB /Matt
I live in Austin Texas but grew up in Eugene Oregon. I've lived in Colorado for many years and Asia for two years. I'm a photographer, a skier, a cyclist and a climber who loves the mountains. Traveling and meeting interesting new people is my favorite part of life. Airbnb is a great way to make both things happen. I'm always happy to meet other travels and swap stories even if you're not staying with me. I've lived in Austin for a long time and know it well if you're looking for advice.
I keep my house pretty nice but love to rough it when I travel. My favorite places are Haiti, China, India and Eastern Europe.
We're not here for a long time, so we might as well be here for a good time.
