Living in Sarah's and her family's house is just great. My colleagues and I have been coming to SXSW for three years now, staying with Sarah everytime and it couldn't be a better place. Great house, perfect location, friendly host - highly recommended.
Once again we had the privilege to go to SXSW and to stay in Sarah Tower's house in the beautiful Zilker area.
Sarah is a great host - easy to contact and she gives you feedback very quickly.
We were 5 people who stayed here for 5 nights and everything in the house was in perfect order and they stay was as great as last year. (There were even food and drinks in the fridge for us(!))
If we get back next year, I will definitely try to rent Sarah's place again.
Great place, great location and great hostess!
Since we made the booking for SXSW very late, every hotel was fully booked. However, one in the gang who also was flying over, told me about Airbnb.
So, we logged in start searching for a place suitable for 4 people with two bathrooms. We found this.
Obviously not walking distance to the city (even if we actually walked one night) but with a rental car it was perfect.
Every morning on our way in to the city we looked for a good breakfast place and found a few. Our favourite pick was Magnolia on 1920 S. Congress Ave which we visited a few times.
I hope we can come back next year and if so, I will most definitely look for this place again.
