We enjoy answering questions about the City and things to do, enjoy having a drink on the porch if you want, but we default to giving you complete privacy and leaving you alone to enjoy the space.

The Neighborhood

French Place/Cherrywood is a nice, quiet neighborhood with lots of foot and bike traffic, lots of cute bungalows, people sitting on their porches and in their yard. We have lots of shade from all the big post oak trees in our area. We're walking distance from a great cluster of bars and restaurants, and easy walking distance to the northeast corner of UT.

Downtown is about 2 miles away, but we are near two convenient bus stops to get you around town on a variety of routes.

Other Things to Note

We have chickens in the backyard and we can usually spare a few eggs for a fresh breakfast.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This flat offers you high value for money close to the city centre of Austin. The furniture is very charming. Kevin is a very friendly and helpfull host. In addition, it was possible to rent two bikes making the SXSW music festival a big success for us. We were able to attend one showcase every hour by cycling between the various venues.

  • Kevin's place is awesome. You really feel like you are staying in someone's home, but without any of the uncomfortable weirdness! We were in constant communication and the entire experience was a great pleasure.

  • I needed a place to stay for a little while before I relocated back home and emailed Kevin out of the blue about his duplex. He was very accommodating and worked with me on the time frame. When I arrived at the duplex I was blown away. Kevin's upstairs flat is beyond adorable. The place is perfectly stylish and stocked with anything you could need cooking wise. You can tell these people love to entertain!

    All in all I give this place 5 stars. The duplex itself is beautiful, it is decorated to the nines. If you're an eclectic type or want to stay somewhere glowing with charm, this is the place. I was in love the moment I got up the steps. So cute.

    The duplex is conveniently located within a few blocks of an amazing 24/7 grocery store and a great cafe. This place is close to downtown but doesn't feel too in the thick of things. Its a great alternative to a hotel and has far more character. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • A lovely apartment, beautifully decorated in a very nice part of Austin. The apartment had more amenities than I could have asked for and Kevin was very kind. I highly recommend the place.

  • What a wonderful place. Very close to Austin and the entire scene. The best part of this place is the owners. They are extremely accommodating and warm. They stayed in touch but left us alone. Their place was very neatly decorated. The neighborhood is really cool too. Parking was easy too. If you are looking for the real deal Austin experience with two of the nicest people I've met in Austin this place is perfect. Better than any hotel.

  • Kevin and his place are great! It's close to some great east side coffee shops and restaurants that are within walking distance, but in a quiet neighborhood. He was very considerate and made my week-long stay very comfortable. I'd definitely stay there again!

  • This is an ideal getaway. Central to everything but tucked away in a sleepy neighborhood so you can totally relax. The house is a charming mix of mid-century furniture and southwestern curiosities. We will definitely stay here again.

    October 2013
  • An absolute delight of a stay! The most obliging and engaging hosts, Kevin and Bob, looked after us from the moment I emailed to the moment we packed our bags and regretfully left. The house is a delight, my friends slept in the double room, in the most comfortable bed that they said they had slept in. I was in the sun room, on a very comfortable sunbed, which was just perfect - and I'm 6ft.
    We were treated like favoured family members, catching up at the end of the day over a wine in the pretty backyard underneath the beautiful oak tree, amongst the chickens, with the dog and cat. There were even Fireflies!
    The house was perfect! Full of comfortable furniture to relax in at the end of a long hot day shopping. With many beautiful objects d'art to admire - our hosts really did share a true slice of their lives with us. What a great way to get to know Austin! Kevin very kindly showed us some of the best undiscovered shopping spots, and we all scored some wonderful pre-loved clothing treasures that will become icons of our Austin visit, more so than our cowboy boots! We had spent our initial time in Austin at the Austin motel, but this stay was definitely the highlight of our trip to Austin.
