About this listing
Our apartment is located in a historic home in Austin's first neighborhood. We are smack dab downtown, 2 blocks from 6th street, and walking distance to the convention center, Whole Foods, countless bars and restaurants, and several bus routes. We have parking for 1-2 cars in a long driveway. We have WIFI but not cable or TV. Our 2 bedroom flat is underground but don't worry we get plenty of light, if you want it! The bedrooms are large and can accommodate couples very comfortably. We have two king size bed, one converts to a twin bed. With the bed as a twin, you can comfortably use the twin air mattresses available. The kitchen is fully equipped. Our apartment is clean and cozy, and as we are not minimalist, the space is welcoming and relaxed. We ask that you treat it like your home, and leave it in a good clean condition. The space could easily sleep 6-8 but with one bathroom we don't recommend it. We are the only apartment in the house, the rest of the house is the domain of our AWESOME landlord. Do take the time to make his acquaintance, he is an Austin icon and an amazing human. His home is incredible and you will be pleased if you get an invitation to cocktail hour.

We will have a friend managing the apartment he will introduce you to the place and give and retrieve the key. Please bring your ID so he can verify your identity. He is your go to guy if you need anything concerning the house, and he'll have great information on all things Austin.
We can also arrange for cleaning during your stay for an additional $100. Please let us know ahead of time if you would like cleaning services.
Cecily's place was in a great location and very convenient to 6th Street and the Convention Center and other SXSW locations. Bonus points for being near Whole Food as well.
Plenty of space with the two bedrooms and was pretty comfortable.
The only problem was that it was difficult to get Wifi in the house, although when we went out to the patio/porch as was suggested it worked much better.
We enjoyed staying at Cecily's house in Downtown Austin. Close, very close to the fantastic SXSW festival. We really felt at home and had a nice stay. The house was really relaxing and tidy and Cecily was so kind to leave us breakfast. We found a Whole Foods close-by so everything was perfect. Thanks Cecily
Great place and wonderful downtown location in Austin!
Would highly recommend!

About the Host, Cecily
Hi. I'm Cecily a massage and Shiatsu therapist. I started out as an anthropologist and love to meet and discuss adventures with fellow travelers. I feel we all have much to learn from each other. I have not traveled abroad as much as I would like, but have been to some incredibly interesting places (West Africa, Colombia, Catalunya). I hope to have the chance to see much more of the world. I think it is the responsibility of all Americans to see as much of the world as we can, so we can truly appreciate all that is great about America as well as the things we need to work on in our relationship to the rest of the world. For SxSW we will have a friend managing our space, but since both my partner and I love food, wine and music, we will provide a list of our favorite places for you to make use of (or not:). From our home you can walk to some of the best dining, music venues, and out door spaces Austin has to offer. Our home here is as unique a place in Austin as Austin is in the US. Come Enjoy our quirks!
