ACL-F1-SXSW: Perfect Location!

House - Private room · Fairmount Avenue, Austin, TX 78704, United States

The Space

Welcome to Austin, TX, the Live Music Capital of the World! Home of the SXSW Interactive Festival, the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and the Circuit of the Americas. Even if your trip to Austin doesn't coincide with a big festival or race there is always a lot going on in this dynamic city.

The house: A cozy 1500sqft house in the historic Travis Heights neighborhood just a few blocks from the heart of the South Congress strip. The Private room has a private bathroom and a separate/private entrance. We have a full kitchen, dinning room, living room with a flat screen TV and a great sound system, a backyard and a washer/dryer. Off-street parking in our driveway is available. Includes free WiFi.

The neighborhood: South Congress (SoCo) or Travis Heights. It's the place you want to be if you are visiting Austin. The South Congress eating and shopping district is less than 1 mile away, and there is easy access to major streets and highways. Our house is just a 6-minute cab ride to downtown (2 miles) or easily accessible by bike (we are avid cyclists, so we know). Also, the bus stop is just two blocks away and you can tote your bike on the bus if you are too tired from the day's activities. Our neighborhood is very safe, quiet, and perfectly situated to downtown.

Also, for those who appreciate nature or a good workout, our house is a 5 minute walk to Stacy Park and Big Stacy Pool. It is free and open year round with a constant water temperature of 80 degrees. And Town Lake/Lady Bird Lake is less than a mile away, if you fancy a good run or walk around this beautiful green space. We are close to great hiking and mountain biking on the Barton Creek Greenbelt.

  • Rey and Vania are wonderful hosts. I am an Airbnb host in the same neighborhood and I called Rey to arrange an extra evening stay for one of my guests. (there was a little reservation-confusion and I was already booked) Rey & Vania were quick to respond to my request and the room was just as beautiful as pictured. They welcomed my guest and made the transition seamless. Perfect location and generous hospitality. Bravo.

  • Rey and Vania are the perfect hosts for your stay in Austin. They made sure we had all of the amenities and then some, gave us local recommendations and respected our privacy at all times. Wish we would have more time to get to know them as we were gone most of the time, but appreciated coming back to an impeccably clean and comfortable space to start and end our days at SXSW. Highly recommended!

  • Rey was a great host, very down to earth and hospitable offering some thoughtful organic and sustainable treats. The room is great, beautiful area, would stay again!

    March 2014
  • The room is spacious, private and tastefully decorated. Bed is comfortable, water pressure good, there was a gift-basket assortment of toiletries and treats waiting when I got there.

    I arrived late, but Rey was very mellow about staying up to let me in. He and Vania invited me to treat their house as my home, and made me feel comfortable and welcome. They gave me lots of good tips about dining and getting around. And the eggs from their chickens were very good, with nice orange yolks...what more could you ask for?

    This was my first Airbnb experience. First of many, I expect!
