Franklin BBQ.
We are also a 15 minute walk to the East 6th area which features highlights such as Whisler's, Qui, Takoba, La V, East Side Show Room, Wonderland, LaBBQ, and Via 313 Pizza.
Austin's bike share program, B-cycle, has two stations a few blocks away on 11th Street.
Bus stops surround the house on all sides, making public transport to many Austin areas very easy via Capital Metro.
Austin's cab/car service is now much better with the addition of uber and lyft.

It was my first time booking with Airbnb and I was so glad I did. My family and I were looking for a nice place to stay in Austin and was so happy to find this charming place. Crystal was very accommodating and booking was very easy. The place was very clean and had 3 comfortable rooms, perfect for 6 adults. I just adore this place and would book it again when we have the chance to visit Austin in the future. We have our 1 year old daughter with us and I requested a pack and play and Crystal had one ready for us in one of the rooms. Everything you need is in this place and a pretty neat backyard and patio. Thanks Crystal for being such a great host.
This is the perfect spot on the east side and the house is even better than the photos. It is nice and spacious with great decor and an amazing backyard. My friends and I were sad we were only in town one night and wished we could've enjoyed the house longer.
On top of all that, Crystal is the best hostess. She responds quickly, provides great instructions, and makes you feel at home. I highly recommend this place for your next Austin trip!
What a fantastic home in a super location. I felt exceptionally fortunate to land at this AirBnB, as it was perfect for my guests and I where this beautiful home was ours. This was my first AirBnB experience so I was anxious to say the least! The home was easy to find, and Crystal was a treat to deal with. My questions and messages were answered and replied immediately. What can I say that hasn't already been said about Crystal, other than she lived up to all of the praise reported here prior!
Lastly, worth noting, the home sits on a very lightly trafficked street, that allowed for some wonderful daytime rest after a long night out on the town!
Thank you again for your kind consideration and gracious hospitality Crystal, we'd definitely consider booking your property again if available next time in Austin!
The place was absolutely perfect. Minutes from downtown made going out into Austin very convenient. The decor and the size of the house was remarkable.. everybody had a great time and were very pleased. There is nothing bad I can say about this location it had every amenity that you could ask for. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.
The house was just as advertised - awesome. Crystal stocked everything that we could possibly need there. She also provided some personalized recommendations that were spot on. The bungalow had a nice, relaxed feel and served as a great base for exploring Austin. In terms of location, it was close to a lot of great places as well. I highly recommend staying at Crystal's place, if you have the opportunity to make it to Austin.
Crystal's house had a great location and was very accommodating for three adult couples. The house was extremely comfortable, prepared, and had several restaurants, bars, stores, etc in the near vicinity.
Crystal was extremely helpful and I would highly suggest to friends and family, and will certainly be inquiring for my next visit to such a great city. Thanks again Crystal!

About the Host, Crystal
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!
