I cannot recommend renting from John enough.
My friends and I had the pleasure of staying in John's home for SXSW Music Festival this year. Every step of the rental process with him was clear, concise, and satisfying.
As advertised, the location was perfect. Ample parking in a quiet, charming South Austin neighborhood a little less than 10 minutes from downtown. Those of us without transportation only had to walk a block to the 10 bus stop at S 1st and Emerald Wood.
Before passing off the keys to the place, John gave me a quick rundown of the neighborhood and listed off some great spots to eat in South Austin. Very much appreciated, since I was coming from out of town. Can't believe I went this long without ever tasting a breakfast taco. Spectacular. Thanks for the recommendation, John.
He also directed us to a full, very reasonably priced HEB grocery store about a 5 minute drive away, which made for some very delicious (and cheap!) breakfasts in the morning in the house's full kitchen.
One pleasant surprise: The house has a very spacious garage! Ended up using it to store our bikes indoors the whole week. Very convenient.
After the fest was over we packed up, checked out and made our way to the airport via Ben White Blvd, skipping all the post-SXSW traffic congestion downtown. Perfect ending to one of the best SXSW experiences I've had so far.
If you're looking for a reliable place to stay in Austin for any amount of time, look no further than John at 5105 Aberdeen Drive.
About the Host, John
I am a retired guy. I have been a professional musician most of my life. I still play a lot. I am a vintage guitar dealer, a vintage travel trailer dealer, and an obsessive compulsive dancer. Two step, East coast swing, Blues, salsa , Bachata, Zydeco , , , I like to dance, get it ? Aside from playing music, I go out and listen to a lot of the great music in Austin. I really enjoy discovering unknown talents before they become famous. I enjoy off the wall bars,dance halls, restaurants and unique amusements. I ride a motorcycle daily but I'm not really a biker type. Its transportation that have enjoyed since I was kid. I know almost all the really cool stuff to do in the beautiful Hill Country surrounding Austin and will be glad to share that information with you. I make a great tour guide. I don't drink or drug so I'm always the designated driver. I do not judge, but my home is not 420 friendly. Drinking is fine, drunks are boring for me. I am a Marine (its incurable ) and a war protestor. When I was discharged from the Corps. I lived in the Height/Ashbury in San Francisco and did everything you would expect me to have done, but I got over it. I've been a friend of Bills' for 26 years now. I am an old hippy who has settled down some, but I still believe in all that stuff. If it matters, I am a top and still active. So, if It sounds like you might enjoy staying at my place, please be in touch.
