Austin couple with home and condo to share with travelers who enjoy great food, live music, and the outdoors.
The place was in a great location and clean. South Congress (a popular spot with good restaurants, etc.) is only a short walk away. Colin was available and responsive, but due to my schedule we actually ended up only communicating by phone.
Wonderful, unique home in the heart of a vibrant south Austin neighborhood. Colin was great, coordinated seamlessly with our arrival time, and worked to ensure our stay was comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
Colin was a fantastic host! It was my first time in Austin for SXSW so I had some worries, but he was in constant contact and checking in was seamless. He kindly provided snacks and drinks just to be hospitable. The house is a real treasure. The interior is gorgeously renovated and the outside has an outdoor shower and chickens (yes, chicken!). It was the perfect home base close enough to the convention center, but far enough that we avoided the noise.
Great location, centrally located to downtown. Has a lot of great amendities for a single person or a couple. Im 6' 3" so only issue was the bed was too short for me.
Colin was a great host. He was very accommodating and he was eager to help with anything I needed. One thing I will say is that this apartment has a bit of a bug problem. Mostly centipedes but also cockroaches. Colin was really nice when I brought this up to him and had an exterminator come by the next morning first thing. Another complication I encountered was the cell phone reception inside of the apartment (my carrier is Verizon). I would have to walk outside to talk on the phone. Other than these two problems the apartment was fine. Great location and fairly well taken care of. If location is your main priority than this listing will likely be good for you.
My stay here was perfect. It iss a great place to stay. I didn't have a car and quite happily walked into downtown Austin (takes about 30 mins), it is close to all bars and restaurants in South Congress and in a nice quiet area. The place was clean, and pretty well equipped. Colin was really was easy to contact and helpful when needed. It's a nice little place!
The 'classic cabin' was fantastic for our 4 person group. The house is warm and cozy and the bathroom is stunning! If you want that 'cottage feel', this is the place for you. Fresh eggs from the chickens in the backyard was a nice treat too! Colin is a great host and made us feel very welcome in his home. The house is in a great part of town, walking distance to amazing restaurants and bars.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 month stay at the SoCo condo. It is located in a nice neighborhood near the great restaurants and shops on South Congress. Traffic was also easier because of the little area it is tucked away in. It's also a nice (hilly) run to the trail on the lake where you can make pretty much any distance out of the loops on the bridges. Colin is very friendly, flexible, and helpful with anything I needed. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while working in Austin.
The SoCo condo was a great place to stay. Convenient to all of South Austin, clean, quiet and charming decor. Colin was really easy to communicate with and getting in and out of the condo was a snap. All in all, a well-maintained rental with nice hosts:)

Sara was appreciative and respectful guest to Host
Colin and his wife were perfect guests! Always welcome to our house!
Colin booked for a client/guest, who was an excellent tenant. She left the condo in great condition and was very easy to communicate with. Happy to host again!
Collin and his wife were lovely guests to our farmstay. It is always great to host fellow airBnB hosts as well, I bet their place in Austin is really nice.
Colin, his wife and son are very delightful people and fine guests. They are Airbnb hosts too, so are extra considerate. I absolutely recommend them to any host.
