About this listing
Our house is a gem, and the bedroom for rent is the coldest in the summer and the warmest in the winter (thats how the air works, wish it was my room!). High ceilings and tall windows let in plenty of light and the large yard and front porch mean that you get to spend a lot of time relaxing outside in the lovely Austin weather.
Note: This room is available all the time, not just during ACL. We're a 1 mile walk to the convention center, and very close to the light rail that will drop you right in fron of the convention center and downtown.
We're near the corner of 7th and Comal, steps away from the venues, bars, food trucks and restaurants (Liberty, East Side King, Shangri-La, White Horse, Yellow Jacket, Takoba, East Side Showroom, Hillside Farmacy, Trailer Space, East Side Pies) all over the east side, and only a 10 minute walk to downtown/red river area. 1 bedroom with twin size bunk beds and we can also provide a full size air mattress if you would like to squeeze a 3rd or 4th. 1.5 baths. We have a full kitchen so you won't need to spend all of your money on eating out, we also have a charcoal grill outside which I'm sure you'll appreciate if the weather is nice. The stereo in the house that plugs right into your iphone so you can listen to all the bands you get to discover during ACL when you come back home to rest. Only 3 miles from ACL.
Other amenities include a coffee maker, washer/dryer, a tandem bicycle, and one private parking spot.
We are also pet friendly if you need to bring the pooch with you.
The bus to downtown stops right in front of the house.
We expect the house to generally be in the same condition and cleanliness as we left it. A Be a respectful neighbor and no smoking inside, and of course, have fun and enjoy this wonderful city! Smoking is fine outside.
Really awesome place in a really cool area! Very walkable to downtown. Their dog Pearl is also super sweet! Nice fenced in backyard if you're bringing your furry friend. Colin and his roommate Frye were super helpful during check-in and with recommendations. It was fun sleeping in their bunk bed too...brought me back to camp days!
Colin and Frye were awesome hosts!! Frye greeted me with their dog Pearl and gave me a nice tour of the house and awesome restaurant recommendations! Colin hung out with us for a night and showed us around, he was awesome and we had a blast. Frye hooked it up with some bikes! The location is super convenient, a short bike ride away from the Lake, Rainey St, Dirty Sixth, and Downtown. My friend and I walked home at 4am from Dirty 6th and made it alive. They keep the room and house very clean, the room is furnished with extra blankets and a desk. They have Wifi at the house. Had an awesome experience here and will definitely try to come and stay here again when I come back!!
Collin and Frye were great, very accommodating when our arrival time changed. Both had great recommendations and the location was spot on! My friend and I were able to walk from there all the way downtown with no trouble and it was a $5-10 uber from any place we wanted to go.
Place was tidy - the guys were great. Always keen to help.
The house is close to great food and a short walk to E 6th St and all the live music venues. Will stay again for sure.
Colin was very nice with some good recommendations. The stay was smooth. Location of his place is great for the nightlife, also next to great places to eat.
Colin and his roommate, Frye, were absolutely superb hosts. The apartment was very clean, spacious and amenable for Airbnb travelers. The location was super convenient to the different points of interest in Austin. We had a great time and come back in a heartbeat!
Colin was a good host, great communication before I arrived and very helpful once I was there. Amazing value, Austin can be very pricey for hotels. Located 15 minutes to the city and close to 6th street. lots of bars, excellent trailer food.
Good experience overhaul

About the Host, Colin
Hey! I'm a micro-biologist doing research at UT-Austin. I like to ride bikes around the hill country of Austin and eat queso and drink margaritas. I moved here four years ago, and Austin has been good to me. I look forward to sharing it with you too.
I live with my homeboy Frye. He is a bike mechanic/pedi-cab driver, and knows a tremendous amount about the city.
We are all laid-back people who just want our guests to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
