About This Listing
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 house is in a fantastic location. The arrangement for the key collection worked like a dream. Craig kept in constant contact. The house surpassed our expectations. It was in a beautiful location and close to all amenities which Craig kindly listed for us. Most importantly the house facilities was as described
Great Host, made us feel right at home. The house is what I expected from the description, updated and every well maintained. This house is in a very nice area of Austin, lots of conveniences within walking distance. Loved hanging out on the front porch.
Thanks Craig, my family and I had a really weekend at your place.
We had a wonderful stay at Craig's house! We rented the house for a bachelorette party and it was perfect! The house was spacious, clean and in a great location. Craig was quick to answer any questions and available through text throughout our stay. We also enjoyed his extensive koozie stash!
Our stay at Craig's house couldn't have been nicer. It was a wonderful place to stage our family's gathering for a wedding. The house was clean, well equipped, nicely decorated and a great place for all of us to base out of. It is in a great central location and in a very quiet neighborhood. We used the large deck in the back for many meals. Craig could not have been more attentive as our host and using his list of things to do, places to dine, we found places we might not have otherwise. Thanks for your hospitality Craig!
Great house - great neighborhood - great host! (Fun city too...)
Craig's house was perfect and cozy. We loved it! It was very clean and spacious. The house has everything you need. Pillows, blankets, an air mattress and towels. My favorite place to hangout was the front porch, it has 2 rocking chairs. It was very relaxing sitting out front. The house is in a great location, great restaurants and bars. Craig was available if we had any questions or request. My family and I would defiantly recommend his house to all our friends and family's.
