Thankyou so much for having us at your beautiful home last week. It was so nice to be able to stay at somewhere so central to town, and especially walking distance from Franklins.
Crystal allowed us to stay at hers very last minute which we were all so thankful for. The house itself is absolutely amazing, and is fully stocked ready to go.
Thanks again Crystal. We loved Austin.
This was our first airbnb experience and it was flawless. Crystal was the perfect host, with great communication before, during and after our stay. The house was perfect inside and out. Great outdoor space and comfortable bedrooms with every amenity we could have possibly wanted. Just wish our stay could have been longer so we could have visited half of the food trucks that caught our eye! Thank you for helping make our trip to Austin so memorable!
This was an amazing first experience with Airbnb. Crystal and her home manage to make you feel cozy and right at home. It was a great place to put our feet up for a few days after taking on a weekend camping festival in the rain. It's a great location and Crystal is a great host. Very quick to reply when there were any questions. I plan to get back to Austin next year so hopefully this will be available. Thanks so much
I love this house in East Austin- second stay. This time we made sure we had time to sit in the awesome large backyard with a nice deck on enjoy the weather and a cold lovable beer! Made our way to Haymarket for a great burger and to watch the Blackhawks game (they won)! The house is nicely appointed, very clean and the beds are super comfy. Crystal is extremely responsive and the electronic door key and alarm makes check in and out super simple. When in awesome would stay again and highly recommend,
Had an amazing time at the house on Pennsylvania. It was a great size and location for our bachelorette party of 6. We loved the comfy beds, and the well stocked kitchen, and spent a lot of time on the back porch enjoying the yard and using the grill.
Perfect place to spend a weekend with the girls!!
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!

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!
