A terrific stay at Crystal's house in East Austin. Better than described with care and attention from Crystal. Unfortunately the weather was not warm enough to enjoy the fabulous looking back yard and deck. Would definitely suggest a visit!
We stayed at Crystal's home with my in-laws and 9 mos old. The home was lovely - came nicely stocked with a few snacks, beer and wine. The home also had a travel crib, which was so very helpful. It was located near some great food trucks and cafes. Most importantly, Crystal was accommodating and fast to respond to our needs! She had ordered next day Amazon delivery for items that made our life easier (like a tub stopper for bathing our baby). She is truly a wonderful host and very easy to reach and communicate with.
Crystal is great! She made sure we had everything we needed, checked in frequently, and went above and beyond helping us as we had a baby in tow. Great house, awesome back yard & patio. Highly recommend!
Cannot recommend this house enough. It was exactly as described and perfectly appointment. The host Crystal could not do enough to make us feel welcome.
If you come to Austin stay here !
Our stay at the house was wonderful. It's spacious and cozy, and Crystal was a wonderful host. The house is located next to a lot of great restaurants and good trucks, and Crystal also left us with a list of recommendations. I would definitely stay here again.
Crystal's recommendations were great and the neighborhood was excellent--especially if you're excited about setting out on foot and exploring the city that way. We found Austin to be easy to get around even without using public transportation--but we also found an abundance of Ubers and used the bikes in the BCycle program. We loved it!

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!
