We used the space to host a birthday party for my son. Several of our out of town family members stayed the night as well. Everything was perfect. The back yard was so nice, it was like having a party in a park. But with better bathrooms. The house was stocked with everything we could possibly need and my family enjoyed their overnight stay. Crystal was very accommodating to our needs for the party. Great location. Beautiful house. I was tempted to tell everyone that we lived there!
This was an amazing house for our friend's bachelorette party! The house is so cute and is in the perfect location for a weekend stay. We had great recommendations from the most wonderful host, Crystal. She was very accommodating to our questions and any extended checkin/checkout needs we had. The house is beautiful and just so cutely decorated - Crystal provided us with anything and everything you could think of. We didn't have time to utilize the amazing backyard- but on our next stay this is a must!! The location of the house is simpler perfect- easy walking distance to East Austin spots and a quick uber or cab away from downtown, Barton springs and other attractions. Couldn't say better things about this place! If you're looking for a place to have a great weekend with your friends - stay here!
My friends and I really enjoyed our stay in this lovely little house. It was clean and cozy and we felt right at home.
We didn't get to meet Crystal but she messaged us all the necessary information and our messages were answered promptly.
I only wish I could have stayed longer!
Thanks again (:
Crystal was a pleasure to work with! The house was super cute with a fabulous back porch and lovely yard. She even left us some beers in the fridge and had a keurig for coffee in the morning. Just lovely!
Crystal was prompt, and hugely informative. She left tailored recommendations for us, and very clear simple instructions about the house. The house was very comfortable, after camping for a few days it was the perfect space to wind down and relax. The backyard is huge. We were close enough to downtown, so that our cab fare was under ten dollars. We were only sad we weren't staying longer.
Wonderful place! Beautifully decorated & perfectly clean. When we arrived the fridge was stocked with beer & club soda--a nice treat after we'd all traveled all day to get to Austin.
A short walk to restaurants, food trucks, and more.
Crystal was easy to work with and always prompt with communication.
We had a bachelorette party stay here for the weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better setup. Crystal goes above and beyond to be an exceptional host. The house was exactly as described and we enjoyed the backyard the entire weekend. Thank you, 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!
