This is a smallish private room with it's own private bathroom. The room has a queen size bed and will sleep two comfortably. The house is right behind Magnolia cafe on South Congress in the SOCO district so you will be right in the middle of town Restaurants and shops abound in the neighborhood. There's enough of them to keep you busy for days even with out a festival. Wifi is available in the house and street parking is easy.

Wonderful house with character in a great neighborhood of Austin! Matt is a very responsive yet easy-going host. While the room is on the smaller side, the kitchen and living room have plenty space to hang out. Everything's super clean.
Great base camp to explore the city, some great spots within walking distance.
This was one of the best vacations that we have taken in a long time! The place was perfect, close to everything, and Matt was great when our flights got cancelled due to weather about finding us another room in the house that was available! Thanks for making it great!
My partner and I stopped in Austin for two nights on our way to Portland, OR and Matt's house was a perfect stepping stone to our next destination. We had a car packed full of stuff and were a little nervous about leaving it parked on the street, but felt pretty safe once we got there. Parking was no trouble at all and our car was secure the whole trip.
It was also a breeze getting in and out of the house at any time. Although there are a lot of rooms in the house, we certainly felt a good sense of privacy in room B. The best part for us was that the trendy, fun South Congress and S. 1st areas were a safe and quick walk from Matt's place. Also, his cats are adorable.
Overall, the location was absolutely perfect, the house was lovely, and the room was exactly what we needed!
The reservation was canceled 20 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
If you're looking for a host that just lets you do your thing this would be a good option to consider. The place has two friendly cats and a big kitchen incase you want to cook something.
Matt's house was better than expected. The location is ideal.
Short walk to all things on S. Congress as well as S. 1st Ave.(5 min.) which I did not even know about. Don't miss this for some great restaurants - Sway, Chile, Bouldin Creek Cafe and more.
He keeps it very clean - someone came into clean many times in the week. A large equipped kitchen is available - but there is so much great food nearby that we never had a chance. He had coffee avail. for us as well as spring water, this was perfect and all we needed. It turned out to be a cold week and rained one day. Matt provided large umbrellas which allowed us to continue our exploring much more comfortably.
His house is walking distance to downtown, parks, music, and food. Downtown is only a 20 min. walk straight up Congress & with a bus station a short block away if needed. I like to walk alot to explore so could go so many places from here easily. Even if you go further to Zilker Park or downtown and there are buses - if it is a busy event it was great to be able to walk home without having to find a taxi or even wait for a bus.
Pleasant streets to walk along and Austin is very safe, friendly and clean. Also was nice to be able to stop in the The Continental Club on the way home - always great music everyday & night so it was great to hear anyone playing there - approx. 3 different shows a night, and The Gallery right next door. Go listen to anyone playing.
Actually we felt like we had the whole house to ourselves - there are 3 rooms but all in different parts of the house, Matt was there if we needed him or called, but everything was readily available so really no need. He was very nice when we met him and gave us some good ideas. There are also bikes available but it was too cold. Lots of sitting areas in the house and yard.
The bed was comfortable and nice pillows. There is an extra office type room connected to the room (not shown) that was really helpful to have. We put our suitcases there and a counter for our laptop - really good to have this space. We had our own bathroom right next to the room and plenty of towels.
I will definitely stay here again and recommend it for any stay in Austin.
Much better location than staying downtown . Downtown is good to visit but SOCO is better to hang out in.
Matt provides a great alternative to a hotel - and it's a great neighborhood to walk around, lots of interesting houses to look at.
Thanks Matt! Hope to see you again.
Awesome location in the heart of South Congress. Matt has a very nice house with a short walk to many attractions. He's a great host. I'll look for his place again when I'm back in Austin.
I really enjoyed my stay here, and would definitely recommend this place to others. It's a really lovely house, and the location is perfect IMO: you're literally right behind South Congress, (which incidentally was a much nicer place to go out than East 6th St!) so a few minutes walk from various restaurants/bars etc. There's also a bus route there that takes you downtown in 10-15 minutes. You can walk there in about 30 minutes.
I didn't see too much of Matt, but he's a really friendly and helpful host should you need any advice or have any problems.
I had room B, which was comfortable and clean - as was the en suite bathroom. It might be worth noting that this is downstairs next to the communal areas (kitchen/lounge/laundry room) so if you're a really light sleeper this is something to bear in mind. I didn't have any problems with this though as the other guests were really considerate when I was there :)
I look forward to coming back to Austin and will definitely stay here again if I can.
Had a great stay in Austin! Matt's house is lovely, clean and quiet, and in a very cool neighborhood just off South Congress Avenue, a pretty hip part of the city. Easy access to downtown.
The room was great - the private bath was a huge plus, and the unique setup was pretty perfect for one person. It's a new room, and wasn't quite finished, but that's because I was desperate for a place to stay and Matt was kind enough to accommodate me on short notice. Still, it was very comfortable and very private.
Didn't actually get to meet Matt because I was in and out frequently, but he made sure I knew I had free run of the house (aside from other guest rooms, of course) and felt right at home.
Would definitely recommend.
On a whim my boyfriend and I took a detour to Austin for a weekend while en route to the Grand Canyon. We were looking for a last minute affordable room in a good area and came to the right spot. The house is beautiful and while the rooms are basic, it's clean, quiet, and within walking distance of South Congress.
