We stayed with Alexandra during SXSW. The information before arrival was really good, and everything was perfect when we arrived late at night. There was even cold beers in the fridge! She had made a really nice guide for everything in the house and also really good tips for everything around the area
The house had two big bedrooms (one with private bath) and a office with a spacious luxury air mattress. The kitchen and living room areas were also big and comfortable. The house also had a big private backyard with a nice porch.
Our rental period was split in two and some people moved in and out halfway during SXSW. Alexandra stopped by and offered to drive the people leaving to the airport!
The area is really nice and convenient. There is a huge grocery store nearby and only a close walk to South Congress were you have awesome dining and shopping options.
I have no problems recommending staying with Alexandra. It was a perfect selection for 10 days at SXSW and will probably stay there if possible for my next Austin visit
Staying with Alexsandra was great in every way.
We were three colleagues who stayed for almost 10 days during SXSW. We each had our own room, using the luxury air mattress as a third bedroom. Everything was in place and in order when we arrived, as was a case of beers in the fridge. Much appreciated! The sheets were very comfortable, the two bathrooms were great. There is a back porch with a bbq and seating, for evening meals in the open.
Importantly, the location is excellent. Only a block away from South Congress, a great place for diners and restaurants. We rented bikes, which were great, only about 10-15mins (downhill) into downtown Austin, were all the events at SXSW was. About 20-25 mins going back up (depending on your condition and how much fun you had that night). Alternatively taxis are about 10 dollars.
Alexsandra kindly left a folder with an Austin guide and all nescessary information about the house, taxis etc. She was also very helpfull with any request, allthough we didn't want for anything.
