South by Southwest (SXSW) is an Austin, Texas based company dedicated to planning conferences, trade shows, festivals and other events. SXSW first began in 1987 and is centered on the downtown Austin Convention Center. Each of the three parts runs relatively independently, with different start and end dates. In 2011, the conference lasted for ten days, with interactive lasting for five, music for six, and film lasting the longest at nine days.

Austin City Limits (often abbreviated as ACL) is an American public television music program recorded live in Austin, Texas by Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Public television member station KLRU, and broadcast on many PBS stations around the United States. The show helped Austin to become widely known as "Live Music Capital of the World," and is the only television show to receive the National Medal of Arts, which it was awarded in 2003.
Initially created to celebrate the music of Texas—featuring western swing, Texas blues, Tejano music, progressive country, and rock n' roll—the series has gone on to feature regional, national and international artists performing a wide range of musical styles, including jazz, alternative country, alternative rock, folk music, and jam band.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I went to Austin for his birthday and stayed at Stephanie's Studio in Soco. It was even better in person and it's true that the location could not be better!!! We were able to walk almost everywhere that we wanted to go, although we still rented a car. We loved their sweet dogs, and although Stephanie was always a text away if we needed something or had a question, we didn't see our hosts the whole weekend and it truly felt private. The place is clean, bed is super comfy, shower is AMAZING, and we absolutely loved the projector and now want to buy one for our home. All in all, great hospitality and perfect home base for a weekend in Austin. Highly recommend.

  • The place was in the perfect location and was incredibly comfortable. Stephanie has two sweet dogs that will come and go if you let them, which was great. We spent most of our time in this area and never ran out of stuff to do.

    March 2014
  • We had a great SXSW with the perfect location. We walked to everything we wanted to see, hear or eat. Our room was really comfortable and had everything to make our stay a great vacation, plus the pups were so cute and friendly..

  • Stephanie and Michael are very accommodating & communicative hosts with a great space in a perfect location, just a block off of South Congress. My friend and I rented the downstairs studio for a weekend. Due to bad weather, we were unable to fly into austin until the morning after our booking date -- Stephanie kindly worked to refund the cost of the first night. Parking was breeze, and the dogs were curious and friendly. Will definitely return.

  • Stephanie and Michael were extremely accommodating and delightful to interact with. Their pooches were fun to play with and I enjoyed my stay very much!

    Just a stone's throw from the vibrant activity on South Congress and a two block walk for South First and the South Austin Trailer Park and Eatery, the location could not be more ideal. I hope to visit again and highly recommend staying in this well equipped and superbly decorated space.

  • Great space, great weekend. Stephanie and Michael were very accommodating and extremely easy to work with. Awesome location in Austin within minutes of everything we wanted to do in the SOCO neighborhood. Highly recommend this studio and will look forward to coming back sometime soon.

  • My wife and I stayed about a week at Stephanies´s and Michael´s place and we just loved it. A spacious, clean and very nicely furnished apartment just a few steps away from SOCO, in a safe neighborhood.
    Stephanie and Michael were great and helpful hosts. All over a great experience that we can recommend to anyone staying in Austin. Thank you very much!

  • This was our first experience with airbnb, and it was excellent. Everything in the studio was top-notch and clean. The shower head. .. you'll know what I mean when you experience it. ..I wanted to bring it home with me. We were in town for the F1 USGP and Michael was the perfect host. All the reviews are pretty spot on. This place is amazing, and so is Austin! We can't wait to go back. When we do, we'll be looking to book this place again for sure. Everything we needed.

Stephanie and Michael wanted to live in walking distance of something. We love our house and its location. From here we can walk to restaurants and coffee shops and all the rest of Austin comes to South Congress. Our house is a great mix of a 1935 Craftsman and a modern infusion of steel and concrete. The two places we list on this site are the upstairs and downstairs of the former garage. Stephanie works in animal welfare and real estate and Michael is a Clean Energy Executive. mdbreen is his id on most social media sites.
