Share some laughs with your friends or family in the large living room or on either of the front and back porches. Located in a friendly walkable neighborhood you will have access to a number of restaurants and coffee shops.
This is a great 3 bedroom in the historical Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin. Hyde Park is a walkable neighborhood just a few blocks north of campus meaning its in the heart of the city. Each bedroom is outfitted with a queen bed focused on comfort and a good nights sleep. The house has two full bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need from coffee pots, pans, to sharp knives, to blenders. The living areas are incredibly open. The kitchen looks onto the dining room and the living room allowing for fun communication amongst the family and friends. The front has a cute porch with rocking chairs while the back has a large deck that is great for lounging, grilling, and listening to music. The house is nestled in a residential community allowing for easy street parking. Walking distance to the house is Texas's famous Central Market for all your grocery needs. Coffee shops and cute places to dine are also easily accessible.
I treat my guests just I would want to be treated while exploring a city. I answer questions in any way possible and give my suggestions when asked via any form of communication (phone, text, email).
Other essentials are certainly included linens, washer, dryer/flat screen, cable, internet/hair dryer, 60 inch TV are all included. The house is dog friendly with an area in the back that makes the dog's life easy.

Hyde Park is a marked as a Historical Neighborhood in Austin. The houses and trees make you feel like you have been swept away from one of Americas fastest growing cities and into the world of yesteryear. In one direction you are very close to Central Market (an amazing grocery store) and a Taco Deli (hands down best tacos), and in the other direction you have Hyde Park's cute "downtown" including Quacks Coffee and Bakery (my fav), Dolce Vita, and Asti (one of Austin's classic gems)
For all of Austin this is an amazing food breakdown!
Austin is not known as a public transit mecca, but the great thing about this house is the 1L and 1M train are literally 50 yards from your back door. Austin as well just launched an 801 rapid bus that stops near the house aswell!
These buses take you straight downtown, to campus, and to South Congress!
Have a great time! Respect the house. Respect the neighbors. Clean up. If there is an problem, just let me know and we will work it out.
This was the best first Airbnb exprence I could of asked for. Craig was the best host. He quickly responded to every question I had and was happy to answer them. The house was beautiful with all the amenities you could ask for. We had 6 guys and slept very comfortably, never felt crowded. The neighborhood was quiet and very nice. It was a cheap uber ride to everywhere in Austin we wanted to go.
Everything was flawless during our stay! The house was easy to find, within walking distance of Central Market, Walgreens, a great little coffee shop, and more. The neighborhood is quiet and welcoming. The house was incredibly clean, decorated with character, and fit the six of us comfortably with room to spare. One of the group members couldn't get over how comfortable the bed was, and actually checked the label on the sheets because she wanted to buy some for herself! Checking in an out was a breeze, and I greatly appreciated Craig letting us store our luggage at the house after check-out so we could run around town some more before our late flight. The whole group couldn't have been happier with the experience. Thanks Craig!
The house was super nice! Craig was really easy to work with. Overall the stay at this place was awesome!
Absolutely fabulous!! Great house, great location, great host! He pays attention to the little things.... towels smelled wonderful, blankets are soft, clean and excellent quality, good coffee maker, TV, etc. All of the things you would want in your own home. He gave us the inside scoop on all of the local places to go, fastest way to get around, answered all of our questions and even some we hadn't thought to ask. When I am in Austin again, this is where I will stay.
Craig was real easy to work with. He had everything ready for our arrival. Place was spotless with lots of amenities (towers, sheets, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, etc...). House was roomy enough for 7 and there were even extra aero mattress to accommodate more. Location was in a quiet neighborhood and close to everything. Craig also provided us recommendations and did not bother us during our stay.
The home is exactly as described by the host and pictures, except better. Our group could not have asked for a better experience. This is a wonderfully restored craftsman-style home in the historical Hyde Park area of Austin, which provides a good flavor for the city. The home is walkable or a short drive/cab/Uber to many things, yet the neighborhood is insulated enough that you can feel comfortable staying at the house. There are many amenities included -- at no cost -- that are not typical, such as a very well-stocked kitchen, a large assortment of leftover adult beverages, washer/dryer including soap, stocked bathrooms, AT&T U-verse, etc. The check-in/out process was very simple and Craig was as available as needed. We loved this home so much, we would definitely consider returning for a future trip.
LOVED the house. Loved the location. It was just as it appeared on the site, but better. Super updated and CLEAN and welcoming (loved the little city guides). Craig responds extra-quickly, which is awesome. We fit 9 people in the house comfortably, hung out on the front & back porch ALL wknd, it's ridiculously convenient to all things UT related. Stocked kitchen but with plenty of space to keep our own stuff. Just... super awesome. Thanks for a great casa, and a great/laid-back virtual host. Definitely hoping to come back. Oh.. and COMFY BEDS!!!

I am a travel/worker myself. In 2011 I was lucky enough to be in India, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Ecuador....2012 I don't think I will have the same luck. I hope you enjoy your stay at my house.
