We are from Austin, Texas and love the outdoors, great food and drink. We are lucky to be in a great city that celebrates creativity.
My 5th year staying on Riverside Drive and as always a pleasant, convenient and memorable experience. From relaxing in the front porch to quiet confutable beds my SXSW experience is always made by my stay here.
We had the best time at Drownland. Paul & Cheryl and their lovely house epitomize everything that's great about Air BnB.
We really enjoyed living like locals, spending time with our hosts and getting truly immersed in Austin life.
The location is great, really close to all the bars, restaurants and shops on South Congress, close to the I35 if you want to head out of town and in a gorgeous, quiet neighbourhood. We loved the public pool in the park opposite too - we used it every day.
The property was exactly as shown in the photos.... We particularly liked the bath tub.
Thank you to Cheryl & Paul for being such kind and generous hosts - you showed us the very best side of Austin!
This being my 4th year at SXSW the house was as perfect this time as it was in the past! A great location with space, comforts and all you wood need, but still remaining close enough into mail transport or a short walk into the centre of austin. A delightful space i would love to stay again.
If you are going to Austin to attend the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Drownland House is perfect. It is a private room, bathroom, and entrance in a house across from a park (great for a morning walk or run). The neighborhood is lovely. Very cute bungalow type houses. It is a 5 minute walk (through this quiet neighborhood) to So. Congress St which has everything you can want: great restaurants, shops, live music, grocery store and bus stop. Paul and Cheryl were wonderful hosts. Cheryl spent a half hour (over a glass of wine on their wonderful porch) circling restaurants, bus stops and sites on a map. She had baked us cookies and put wine and beer in the fridge (comes with the room). And left candles on the porch on the night we came home at 10:30 in a rainstorm.
Don't stay anywhere else.
For the epitome of southern hospitality.
Couldn't have asked for nicer place to stay or more accommodating gracious hosts.
Location, 5-10 minute walk to soco.
Would stay here again and again .
Thank you both for everything.

Cheryl and Paul were so welcoming. They were very helpful showing us the neighborhood and telling us about the good places to go. And in fact the places they suggested were really good.
the guest house was clean , I loved the decoration. Cheryl provided us with a welcome basket and asked us if we need anything.
the place is 2 minutes away from a bus stop and the main street has shops, restaurants and bars . Such a good neighborhood.
Very very good experience. I recommend the place to everybody
Going to a city you dont know for the first time can be scary when you are on your own. But my experience at Drownland House made my trip .From a Lovely warm welcome, to a survival care package Cheryl and Paul made me feel at home and were very accommodating to my drop in and out needs of attending a conference i couldn't have asked for better hosts.
The room was large and spacious with its own bathroom perfect accommodation to stay in whilst visiting Austin
A must visit, Will definitely want to go again
Paul and his wife, Cheryl, stayed a night and all was well. Communication and interaction were positive. Thanks!
Paul and his wife stayed with us for a few nights in August. They are both friendly, relaxed, and easy going people. They were a joy to host!
