This is the perfect place to enjoy the Austin experience!
I have a 2 bedroom apartment (one of which is a loft) and 1 bathroom (accessible through the main bedroom). This sweet space has high ceilings and a walk-in closet. The queen sized Temur-Pedic bed will sleep two easily and the loft space accommodates two more on another queen bed. There is plenty of natural light and the view from the 4th floor balcony is incredible as it overlooks the iconic "City of Austin" Power Landmark and the Missouri-Pacific rail line that used to feed it (fyi, it can be noisy...). Whole Foods is a block away for any provisions you may need. I even have the SXSW office across the street from my front door. Furthermore, convenience stores, Office Max, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, yoga (you name it) are all a few steps away. If you are not in the mood to walk, one of a dozen bike shops will rent bikes and/or the Car2Go program will really make you feel cool.
If you reserve my place, be sure to check out the Guestbook that I've created on Airbnb for great restaurant and bar recommendations!

• 46" flatscreen with AppleTV (Netflix, etc.)
• Wireless high-speed internet

I hope you choose my place, but good luck with your search regardless of where you stay! :)
The rules are pretty typical. Be nice to my stuff and the neighbors. I'll have a more detailed print-out available for you in the apartment if there is something specific you get curious about.
My friends and I had a great time staying at Tim's loft. It was in the perfect location, close to the heart of Austin and all within walking distance. Tim made the process of checking in and out a breeze and saved us so much by letting us park our car for free in his parking garage. I highly recommend his place!
Tim was great! The “check in”/”Check out” process was a breeze and he was easy to contact when we needed something. The apartment was bright, sunny, comfortable and close to everything! We had a wonderful experience.
We had a lovely time at Tim's apartment. The space is very accurate to the listing photos, and a great location for us. As some other reviewers mentioned there is a train outside, which we didn't generally find to be a problem, but if you are a light sleeper earplugs or white noise would be an easy solution.
Tim was very helpful in helping us to get in and was easy to get a hold of.
Tim was a lovely host, and was very helpful for us to get into the apartment on the day itself. The entire process was seamless. The location of the apartment is also very convenient, it's near Whole Foods and also the bars on 6th Street. However, for us, we had trouble sleeping as we were located next to the railroad and kept waking up at night. Overall a pleasant stay!
Tim was a great host. He was very helpful and made the experience easy and enjoyable. The condo location is great and was perfectly clean and comfortable inside. Was nice to be walkable to most places we wanted to go.
Tim was a class-act and very helpful getting us settled in. The townhouse was immaculate and the location was perfect!
Tim was incredibly helpful throughout the process and welcomed me promptly on the day. He left us nibbles and cold beer in the fridge, so a perfect welcome to the weary traveller. The flat was spotless and as the picture shows, both a comfortable and cozy place to relax as well as a great home for me and my colleague during our visit to SXSW. Fresh towels, toiletries, Wi-fi, and the works means that we were never at sorts even though we travelled light. With Friendly neighbors, Whole Foods around the corner, and a 15min walk to the Austin Convention Centre, the location was brilliant.
