I stayed at Renee's home with 3 friends for ACL 2013. We had a wonderful time and all four of us agreed that we would definitely stay there again whenever we get back to Austin. Renee's house is lovely, modern, clean and just felt like such a sanctuary at the end of each festival day. The back porch and yard are wonderful. Renee went above and beyond to make our stay a delightful experience. Thank you, Renee!!
We loved our stay at Renee's house for SXSWi 2013. We ended up walking to the convention center each morning, which was a good way to start the day (about 40 minutes to walk, if you're speedy), and then taking taxis back to the house each night for about $10-$15. The house is very charming, beautiful, and clean. The beds and the couch are quite comfy, and the back porch and backyard are truly inviting. Renee was even kind enough to stock a few groceries for us, which illustrates how determined she is to provide a great place to stay. Someday, I hope to get the chance to spend time there again.
Renee's house was the perfect place to unwind amidst the SXSW craziness. It was close enough to bike ride to downtown and only a $8 cab ride (when we could get one!). It's also super close to the bus stop (7 min walk, 5 minute ride downtown), and the bus proved to be really convenient and the best option.
The house itself is really fantastic, clean, beautiful kitchen, modern decor and really comfortable. Great back porch and yard. Everything was exactly as advertised. I loved it and would absolutely stay there again. I would strongly recommend Renee and her house to anyone visiting Austin.
