Hey everybody this is a spacious private room in SoCo aka South Congress Ave in Austin. It's in a beautiful modern 4 bedroom remodeled Victorian home and you get a private bathroom with the room. Queen size bed and a fold down sofa in the room with plenty of space to spread out.
You can't beat the location for walking to shopping and dining in Austin. Several of Austin's top restaurants are with in a few blocks. Shopping and strolling on S. Congress is just a few feet out the the front door. Check out my other listings to see all good reviews.
Airbnb has been a great way to share what I love in my city and keep the travel energy alive while I'm home saving for my next trip. I've made a lot of wonderful friends this way I hope you can be the next ones
A miscommunication left me in another house than the one I expected. It was not where I wanted to be. It felt sterile, too. The tub I had looked forward to did not heat up as hot as I wanted. I could hear the conversations of other people through the hollow core door echoing in the brand new suburban house. I felt lost in a spec house.
But everything was clean.
I will try AirBnB again, but will aim first for whole apartment rental or go for private room with separate entrance in an actually used house.
Matt's home is incredibly located right off S. Congress in Austin, within easy walking distance to all the Soco action. The modern home has been fully renovated with large gourmet kitchen. My room was the front room with a shower and sink. The common area included the kitchen, patio and television room. Matt encouraged guests to use the kitchen and laundry room complete with supplies...so generous. I stayed during the month of December and had a fantastic time! The home also has two cats which are very social. I highly recommend this Air BnB listing.
House was perfect. We had a comfortable bed, shower and sink in our room. We felt right at home. Really cute outdoor patio and front porch that we enjoyed. Matt was helpful and we love the location in South Congress. Walked one block to bus stop and for a dollar rode straight up South Congress to Sixth Street. No problems! Left the car parked at the house. Terrific restaurants, shops and coffee within walking distance of the house too. Ran down to nearby running trails. Couldn't ask for more.
I stayed with Matt because my mom was in the hospital. I had been staying at various hotels and had not been able to sleep. When I got there he was incredibly understanding and did everything to accommodate me. He has been the most gracious host. When I accidentally left some skirts in the dryer he meticulously placed them on my bed. After I asked him to.
The first night I slept I got 12 hours of sleep! It had been a week and I was averaging 2-3 hours a night.
He has allowed me to talk his ear off about my mom...he's a great conversationalist. Has been all over the world and is very talented but so modest.
His dog and cats immediately warmed up to me. I felt right at home. I can't say enough good things about Matt and his hospitality. Needless to say I extended my stay.
I wish you the best with your pursuit in Haiti. This will not be my last stay with you my new friend.
The place is in a great location with great restaurants and coffee shops just around the corner. Barton Spring Pool my favorite place in Austin was just like a mile or so away. The house as such is amazing and I loved what Matt has done with the kitchen. The host was very friendly and accomodative. I would love to return back during my next visit.
Matt's home on South Congress is perfectly located! It's right around the corner from Magnolia restaurant and a stone's throw from the boutiques, restaurants and food trucks in SoCo. I loved staying at Matt's! I met other visitors who were really interesting travelers, enjoyed a glass of wine with the host who is a world traveler and photographer. His house is built to be a B&B and I'd be back in a heartbeat! Do yourself a favor and stay here if you have the chance!
If I could describe our stay with Matt in one word it would be Perfect. The location was great, walking distance to great restaurants, music venues and the hospitality was spot on. We would stay there again and I would recommend to our friends.
Matt was a great host and his house was absolutely beautiful. The pictures doesn't do it justice. He also let us use his bikes and we took them all over town. Amazing location right off of Congress and right by all the SoCo restaurants and shops. We'd love to stay there again!
The room was great and the owner Matt was easy to deal with and stress free. He has 2 cats and 2 dogs which are all super friendly, and yes they will all want to be loved and played with, you might even be lucky enough to have a cat or two sleeping on your bed, we did! The location of the house is also a big plus. 5-10 walk to shops cafes bars restaurants live music venues and downtown only 5 mins drive or 20 mins walk away. Overall great experience. Thanks Matt!
Matt is a terrific Airbnb host who runs a tight operation. His hand-crafted historic home in Austin's SoCo neighborhood is charming and a fun place to stay with many other great guests coming and going. I enjoyed my stay with Matt and getting to know him and his friends.
