We had a lovely stay with Austen and recommend it. The location is very handy and is just a short bus ride from Down Town and even though we have no car, found it no problem to get in to town via bus for sight-seeing. The house was clean and cool : ) and there's a swimming pool just across the street which is free and open to the public.

Austin's a fantastic host with a lovely house. It's a friendly and laid back place, and he'll be as helpful as he can. The room is nice and quiet, comfy and clean. Won't hesitate to book again with Austin when we come back to Austen!!

We arrived at Austen's super late, but they were still really welcoming! Their house is super easy to get to, and close to all main streets, restaurants, and bars. That weekend Austin had a lot of festivities so we didn't get to see much of the guys because neither of us were at the house, but the times we did get to see each other, they were extremely nice and really helpful with places to see and eat, Austen has lived in Austin for 30 or so years so he really knew his way around! The house is super comfortable, and clean, lots of space, and the guys were really welcoming for us to eat whatever was in the kitchen and to use their back yard, which we did for smoking and that was cool with them too! Will for sure be coming to Austin more, and hopefully will be staying at Austen's if possible!

Austen is a capital fellow (get it?!). We were both caught up in SXSW madness, so didn't spend too much time hanging out at the same physical location (I was also completely partied out by the end of my stay in Austin and really couldn't keep up with a native!). However, I have no doubt that he and his friends would show you a prodigious amount of hospitality during your stay here. Quick note: having some sort of car would be useful out here. Austin is not really a walkable city unless you end up smack in the center of downtown, and barely at that.

Austen and Taylor are great hosts! Their space was clean and comfortable and private. The guys are extremely welcoming and helpful. I was able to get a good night's rest every night I spent at Austen and Taylor's and I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with them and staying at their place!

I'm an Analytical Chemist as a profession, musician and events organizer for the love of the industry. I've lived in Austin for ~30 years. Love music, motorcycles, adventure, old things like antiques/history/manners, life and the world. I'm laid back, get along with most everyone I meet, enjoy those who feel lucky to be alive and don't sweat the small unimportant things. I feel very fortunate for all I've been afforded in my life.

My roommate, Taylor (C&C Engineer), and I are busy bodies but laid back. We like to help others out and so are providing a cool place to stay for a cheap rate. We'll do whatever we can to help make your stay fluid & trouble free. We know the city very well and can assist you in getting around, finding points of interest, day spots, night haunts, swimming, overlooks, country roads, restaurants, bars, banks, bicycles and and motorcycle routes, persons/places/things only long term locals can get you in on, you name it we or someone we know has got you covered.

When you stay with us, you see Austin!
