About this listing

Boutique style craftsman in the heart of East Austin. Just a few blocks away from the East 11th and East 6th districts. Very near downtown - a short walk or incredibly short car ride away. One of the best possible locations in Austin - close to the airport, in the middle of SXSW festivities, a short walk to the UT football and baseball stadiums, and just a stone's throw from cafes and nightlife.

The space

The boutique style is a charming craftsman built in the 1920's. It features many period details such as glass doorknobs, craftsman built-ins, and Tiffany lighting.

Three well-appointed bedrooms feature luxury linens, down comforters, plush bath robes, armchairs, floor length mirrors, and vanity areas.
Each bedroom can sleep two - an air mattress can also be provided.

Spa-like bathroom with plenty of storage space, luxury towels, and hotel quality toiletries from Gilchrist & Soames.

Fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with high-end stainless appliances, gas stove, convection oven, Keurig coffee maker, French Press, and breakfast nook.

Open dining and living areas featuring Tiffany lighting, comfortable furniture, 50" smart tv (no cable), library, and wine nook.
HD cable with over 150 channels.
High speed wifi also included.

Cozy front porch with vintage rockers. Enormous backyard with large, lit deck including dining area, lounge area, biergarten, and outdoor grill.

Truly equipped with everything you might need for a short or long stay - NEW washer and dryer (February 2014), iron, hairdryer, outdoor grill, fully-equipped kitchen, and luxury linens. Air mattress, pack and play, and travel stroller available on request.

Five city bus stops are located within 1-2 blocks.

Per Austin occupancy restrictions, maximum occupancy is 6 guests. We will consider hosting 8 guests if they are all related, the group includes children, AND you have a conversation with me about this prior to booking. No pets allowed.

No parties, no loud music, no smoking inside the house. Only the number of guests you reserved should be at the house - any number over is considered a party. Austin's noise ordinance states no loud activity after 10:30pm. Please be respectful of our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum after that time - especially while on the back deck.
Smoking outside is fine, but please dispose of all cigarettes in the outside trash cans before you leave. If the house smells like smoke, you will be charged the security deposit.

Wine, beer, coffee, and tea are provided for you. Please be respectful.

$500 deposit refundable if home not damaged.
Very simple check out guidelines are provided in the Welcome Packet - we ask that you follow these before checking out of the house. We will claim the security deposit for any excessive cleaning (if the cleaning crew requires more than 3 hours).

If any violations of these house rules occur, you will owe the full deposit.

Thank you and enjoy your stay.

Crystal has a lovely home that is in close proximity to all of the attractions in Austin. Quiet, family-friendly and a great backyard space. Crystal also was a great communicator and provided some local tips and made sure we were well taken care of.

This place is a little gem. Very good location, close to everything, and super cozy. Talking to Crystal and coordinating was as easy as can be.

We had a great time at Crystals. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The patio furniture needs a little spring cleaning but overall the house was clean and comfortable. Crystal was really helpful and responsive with our questions even though she was on vacation herself.

I've stayed Crystal's place for family trip last week. We all very satisfied with well-maintained, very clean and beautiful house. Location was pretty good as well. We could go number of Austin's hot spots within 15 minutes. Outside deck and grill were great, too! Her place is very family friendly. My son is only 9-month old so I requested pack-n-play and she prepared just in time. Also her house was very clean, so we enjoyed all the time with crawling baby. I highly recommend her place for everyone, especially the family with baby.

Andrew and I live in Austin, TX. When we travel, we look for boutique hotels and well-appointed vacation rentals in the heart of the city. We like being steps away from the hottest restaurants and cocktail bars. We've decorated our vacation rentals to reflect these tastes and provide you with a cozy, chic home away from home!
