Bright, airy house is perfect size + layout for groups to enjoy. Location is central within easy reach of Austin's best restaurants and nightlife. There are 2 bedrooms/1 bath downstairs and a dedicated sleeping loft with its own 1/2 bath upstairs.
Just six blocks east of downtown, this sweet little house makes a great homebase for exploring Austin. Downtown and east 6th street are an easy walk through a great neighborhood with true Austin character. The house is one block from Cesar Chavez which is a growing commercial district with great restaurants (Bufalina, Las Cazuelas, Mr Natural), coffee shops and cocktail bars (Cenote, Weather Up), and retail (Farewell Books, Charm School Vintage). This side of town is also full of artist studios and small galleries which are often holding open houses or events. Pedicabs are easily available and a bike rental shop is just four blocks away. Just south are an extensive riverfront park and the Lady Bird Lake trail system; great for outdoor fun and a leisurely way access the city on bike.
The house is over 100 years old with the homey charm of this historic east Austin neighborhood but also offers all the amenities of a new contemporary home. It features a beautiful, open, airy living space with a loft and has been freshly renovated to be a clean, simple modern space. One large main room for living, dining and cooking makes the house perfect for groups and a comfortable place to relax. 2 bedrooms and open loft space comfortably sleep 6 people but couch and 2 twin air mattresses are available if you need additional sleeping space. 1 bath downstairs and a 1/2 bath upstairs.
We are young architects here in Austin and this house has been our weekend design project over the past year. We've spent a ton of time in this house throughout the renovation, using it for several exhibitions, shows and parties. It is a lovely place inside and out and a perfect place to soak up the Austin vibe. The huge backyard is frequented by green parrots and features a huge steel fire bowl for outdoor entertaining.

Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as desired. We live in the neighborhood and can easily meet arriving guests, bring supplies or offer recommendations. We always tell our guests that we are available and we mean it.
The neighborhood is quiet safe and walkable. Our street is tree lined and is arguably one of the best pockets in East Austin. There are a mix of new and old, modest and high end homes. We really appreciate the diversity and homey feeling of the neighborhood. We live nearby and are very well acquainted with every street in East Austin so don't hesitate to ask if you need a guide.
There are bus stops 2 blocks away and light rail about 3/4 mile away.
Peak weekends require a 30 day advance notice of cancellation in order to receive a refund. Full refund is of course given if the house is rebooked for the same time frame.
Please mind the neighbors. They are all super people and laid back but please be respectful and neighborly.
Always use the security system. It is there expressly for guest safety. This neighborhood is quiet and comfortable but Austin is still a city and security is an issue as it is in most urban places.
Have fun and don't hesitate to call if you have any questions about the house, neighborhood or things to do in Austin. We love this town and are happy to help!
The house was beautiful, clean and stocked with amenities. Coffee, milk, tea, scissors, hair dryer you name it. Jessica made check in easy and respected our privacy. This was my parents first airbnb experience and they were amazed.
A group of 5 stayed here and we had plenty of space to hang out. The house is clean, modern, and comfortable. The location is great too - very close to Veracruz breakfast tacos, East Side Kings, and Rainey St. bars. We did use our rental car and Uber quite a bit to get around. Coming from the East Coast, I found that Austin is not a very walkable city, so it was great to have a driveway to park our car because we used it a lot to get around. Jessica was a great host; she greeted us upon arrival and checked in with us periodically to see if we needed anything. Overall great home base to explore Austin!
Jessica's house was amazing and came as advertised! It felt really spacious with its high ceilings, and it has a lot of interesting architectural and design elements. The beds were all comfortable as were the air mattresses Jessica made available. The back yard is massive and is a great spot to pass some time outside. More than enough space for a group of 7 adults.
The location is a fantastic jumping off point for Austin, especially East Austin. It's walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and bars and a short drive to downtown. The neighborhood also felt very safe.
Jessica was excellent about communicating and providing recommendations for things to do around town.
Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, and would definitely consider staying here again on my next visit to Austin!
The house is so cute!!! It was very clean, and it's in a cool, hip part of austin. We rented it for a girls weekend and it was the perfect spot- the house is SO close to amazing east side restaurants and bars. You can walk to rainey street and it's just a short drive to downtown.
The host, Jessica, was very friendly in all her emails, and we would definitely stay here again!!
Cool place perfect for a small group. Jessica was super responsive and accommodating, and the house had everything we could have needed for a weekend stay.
Jessica was a fantastic host and this house was incredible. We loved the location -- a few fun places within walking distance and many more just a short ride away. The atmosphere was even better than expected. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the house has everything you could need. It was also super clean and safe. We loved getting breakfast tacos and chocolate donuts at the corner. We loved hanging in the backyard. We loved walking to Yellow Jacket and The Liberty and many other fun bars around town. East Side Kings was SO delicious. Jessica was responsive with tips and helpful ideas. We would love to come back someday.
The house was awesome. Plenty of room for a group. Location was nice and you can walk most places or take a cheap uber to different areas of Austin if you're going out. The host was great and quick with communication. Overall a really great house!
